an american affair/georgia wedding photographer


This is a shoot that has been in the works for a while…at least in my mind. I knew I wanted to do an American themed shoot at my grandfather’s cabin in Nashville, Georgia. It was just putting everything together that took a little bit of time. I remember starting to ask vendors to help me and when they said yes I was doing the happy dance in my office! I started writing designers on Etsy to let me use some of their beautiful dresses or head pieces or lingerie. I didn’t know if they would write back, but I thought, “What’s the worst thing that could happen?!” To my surprise, everyone was all in. Everyone that worked on making my vision come to life did so with such enthusiasm and gusto! From the beautiful models to the florist. It was a dream team and I couldn’t have been more blessed. As if seeing it all come to life wasn’t enough, to be featured on Ruffled Blog was just icing on the yummy cake. Thank you so much to everyone involved and I TRULY could not have done any of this without you.
