I met Sarah through my sweet bride, Caroline, and am so grateful she referred me to this gorgeous bride and her groom, Matthew! Sarah & Matthew live in Mississippi, so we have had a few Skype dates to get to know each other, but it was so fun to be with them together and in-person for their wedding day! Their love is so genuine and their fun is so lively! This group sure does know how to dance.

Sarah & Matthew’s first look was just the sweetest, and Sarah couldn’t wait to walk through the garden to see her groom! One of my favorite images is from right before walking toward him when she turned the corner and saw him waiting with his back turned for his lovely bride! The evening closed out with some stunning views and a great party led by the Atlanta Wedding Band at the Hilton Atlanta Marrietta Hotel & Conference Center. Finally, how fun is their lavender toss exit! What a unique (and delicious smelling!) way to leave for your honeymoon! Sarah & Matthew, so excited to share a peek into your day! Thank you for having me be a part of your wedding!

    Lauren,
    It is always more than a pleasure to be at a wedding your are shooting! You exemplify both professionalism and fun to every event! This shoot was especially special and heart tugging to be because the bride has been my daughter’s best friend since they were in kindergarten. Sarah is stunning and the groom so handsome! Just a beautiful day! Can’t wait for our paths to cross again!
