Logan and Ali got married at Ash Lawn: a Midsummer’s dream wedding

I absolutely loved photographing Logan and Ali’s wedding at Ash Lawn.  I love when two cultures mixes it makes for the most fun weddings.  The day was perfect a Spring day.  They got ready in a gorgeous private home in Keswick, La Fourche and then we went to Ash Lawn where the ceremony and reception took place.  The ceremony was performed by Ali s’ sister and Logan’s dad, which made it for a very personal ceremony…and then it was a big party where everyone danced and finished the evening with a sparklers exit.

Gorgeous bridal portrait at Washington and Lee University

Katie was a gorgeous bride. The class, elegance and femininity from Audrey Hepburn. I enjoy it so much when we have time before the wedding ceremony to take our time and photograph beautiful bridal portraits. Adam from Donovan-Groves Events was there to help organize the day. Beautiful flowers from Floral Images. Thanks jeff.

capturing life

This week I was lucky enough to photograph two different phases of life.
Meet Ashby is two-weeks old and Mrs.K. who is 95. Mrs K. had 9 boys, including two sets of twins and is still living at home with one of her sons and she swims everyday. A true inspiration.

Family portraits

It was so fun to spend some time photographing this lovely family. I am always so intrigued by twins. I love how often time their personality shines through their similarities. It is hard to believe these adorable little girls came early into the world. Wade is also the best brother they could wish for.
