Sweet and Joyful Outdoor Engagement Session

You may have noticed that we’ve been featuring more engagement sessions recently. We’re so inspired by the intimacy, emotion, and overall happiness that photographers are able to capture during these sessions. The months before your marriage are precious, and the fragility of your relationship is gone. You’ve promised to be together forever, and we simply adore the calmness that shines through in images like these from Ciara Richardson.

We’re thrilled to share Madeline and Ryan’s engagement today, and we can’t wait to share their stunning wedding with you tomorrow.

The Photography of Haley Sheffield

It’s been a while since we’ve had the pleasure of introducing you to a new photographer, and today we’re really excited to tell you a little about Haley Sheffield! Haley is an insanely talented wedding photographer in Georgia, but she adores traveling the world to capture beauty and your special moments.

Haley wanted to tell you a little more about why she got into the business of weddings:

“Like most women, I started dreaming about weddings and marriage at a very early age. I remember sitting for hours with my cousins and siblings looking through our grandparents’ old photographs. I was fascinated by the idea of a love that grows old as you do. To this day, I still consider those moments as the start of my love for photographing weddings and capturing real memories. I believe in quality over quantity. The value of a moment captured in time. The pricelessness of holding a photograph of someone you love. These things are the core of my business–and the essence of what keeps me going as a photographer.”

If you’re looking for a photographer with a beautiful spirit, who is also one of the best wedding photographers in Georgia, please visit Haley’s website to check out more. She’s already booking 2015 brides!
