Savannah and Arell’s micro wedding, at the Providence Cotton Mill, was so sweet and emotional!  From the first look with her dad, to the couple’s private vow reading, we were all in tears!  They will be welcoming a baby girl soon, which made the day even more special! The soft florals and greenery were so […]

When Tobi secretly reached out to me about photographing his proposal to Mallory I was ecstatic!  Tobi and Mallory met at Limestone University, where they were on the swim team together.  So, it was only fitting that the proposal take place where their love story began.
