This engagement session was a lot of fun!
Cody & Morgan have been together for a while now.
Morgan went to Berry College so we decided to do the session there at her alma mater. We love shooting at Berry so any option to do so.. we are all for it!
Getting married in July 2017, they are having a patriotic wedding that we cannot wait to shoot! She brought that theme into the session and it was perfect.They even brought their kitty, Trooper the moustache cat, to be in some of their photos!
At the end of the session, they wanted to recreate one of their first dates.
The cut up some watermelon that they grew in their garden. They are big nascar fans and Cody hasn't missed a race in almost 8 years. They decided to add on to the session and do silly nascar cutoff shirts equipped with jorts! So fun!

Where to begin when it comes to Carlos & Courtney's wedding day?
Well, being alumni to the college, the ceremony was held at Frost Chapel at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. The reception was at the Rome History Museum.
The best man said in his toast that Carlos knew he had to find and know himself first before he could find the most perfect person. He found his soul mate once he did and lucky enough for Carlos, she knows herself just as much.
There is a quote that states "no love is ever the same." The love between Courtney and Carlos is exactly that quote, one like no other.
The way they look at each other you know exactly what they are thinking. They have got love in their eyes that will last an eternity. Cheers to you, Courtney and Carlos. We hope you have the best adventure you could possibly have. We wish you the best of luck through all the sunny days and turbulence along the way.

The sparkler exit was extended out into the road. We had a cop pull up and looked around. A lot of the guests thought he was going to tell them to move off the streets... he blocked the road so we could do the exit. He grabbed a sparkler and joined the crowd. He then made sure Courtney & Carlos made it to the hotel and congratulated them on his loud speaker. Such a sweet thing to do! Thank you Rome police department!
The Barnett & Thompson family are always fun and ready for the camera. It wouldn't be a season change if I didn't get to take their photos!
The session was at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. If you have ever been there, you would know there are deer everywhere. It is even more so during the fall.
Kim & Hope joined the Barnett's for photos this time around. During their spring session we got photos of the dads with the kids. This time it was the moms turn!
It's crazy to think that Maverick is already a year old! It seems like yesterday I was doing his newborn shoot. Happy 1st birthday little man! We went to Berry College for this shoot. Olivia had her first birthday photos done here as well. Keeping up with the tradition. This little dude is so stinking cute and full of personality. I cannot wait for family fall photos! The Barnett family has always been one of my favorite families to work with. Always a fun time. They always go the extra mile to get their kids to laugh and smile
This was my second shoot Saturday, and also my second time working with this beautiful family. I did their photos back in the fall which you can see here. Reed & Emrey have grown so much in the past 7 months.
We had to reschedule this shoot a few times but I am so glad we did because we couldn't have asked for such a better day or weather! Berry College is such a beautiful campus.
This little family was such a delight to work with. They were the first of two shoots I had Sunday.
We met at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. It is such a beautiful campus! So much going on all the time. It's just as pretty in the summer as it is in the fall. They have a wildlife refuge and there are sooooo many deer and fawn running around. It was pretty cool.
