Two weeks before Kathryn’s wedding, I got a phone call from her. She had seen her friends Forrest’s and Caitlin’s blog on the site, and decided she needed a wedding photographer. Yes, two weeks before her wedding, she booked Blackbird Photography. I am a super spontaneous girl…this was PERFECT! And to top it off, she called me on my birthday! It was a great birthday gift. She was perfect in every way.

I was thrilled to be a part of this beautiful winter wedding. Beech Haven Baptist Church in Athens, GA is the church Kathryn’s parents got married in. She grew up in the halls of the church. It was special to be part of her wedding, but also see where she and her family worshiped, and spent so many hours. It felt like I became a part of their history through the photographs I took.

Brad and Kathryn, it was lovely. You are both wonderful. Congrats to the both of you!

I would like to thank my long time mentor, Michael Schwarz for second shooting for me on Brad and Kathryn’s wedding. When I first worked with Michael, 2 years ago, he told me that he’d be second shooting for me one day. I had forgotten all about that, until he reminded me. With big eyes, I was shocked. Blackbird has come so far. I’ve been blessed to have many mentors who have selflessly poured into me, and cheered me on. He’s one of those people. It was a huge pleasure and honor to have Michael shooting alongside me for Brad and Kathryn’s wedding.

Oh. emm. gee. That’s about all I’ve got to say for these two. Seriously.
Amberly, Erich and I tried to get together over Thanksgiving to shoot their engagement session. With her travel schedule and mine, our paths weren’t going to cross. “You wouldn’t be willing to come to Charleston, would you?” Oh heck yeah! So, the first weekend in December, I packed my little bag and headed north.

I am in love with the charm of Charleston. We found so many little nooks and crannies. Amberly is 100% gorge, and Erich knows how to make her laugh….he’s a cutie too! 🙂 I can’t wait until April! These two rocked the casbah!
