Georgia Mountain Shoot


I think one of the nicest things about being a wedding photographer would be being constantly surrounded by love!! I mean it’s infectious so really it can’t help but bring joy to even the observer!! SAWYER BAIRD who captured these beautiful images of Ryan & Rachel told us, “I think being young and in love is the most beautiful thing… and with this, documenting it is so important.” We couldn’t agree more. This gorgeous duo might have already been married, but how lovely to capture their first months as husband and wife… and in such gorgeous surroundings! I actually just found the below words on SAWYER’S website about why she does what she does and I think this sums it up beautifully for both photographer and the subjects. Nothing sparks memories like looking at old images. 

“I am a photographer because of the way that photos make me feel. When I look back at an image I feel the exact same as I did in the moment I captured it… full of passion and pure emotions. I am forever thankful to be able to do such an amazing thing for others. It makes me insanely happy.”

Wild beach shoot by Lauren Albanese



It’s always a delight to feature the lovely Lauren Albanese on the blog, and especially when it’s with beautiful shoots like this. Wanting to celebrate their relationship, Natalie and Matt spent a day on the beach embracing their new Southern California location. Lauren tells the story…

When Natalie first met Matt, she was 15 and scoping the mall for ‘cute guys’. Having never had a boyfriend before, she certainly didn’t expect to be meeting her husband that night! After meeting, they talked and laughed for hours, they couldn’t believe how much they had in common; most importantly, their relationship with God and how it impacted their lives. At the end of the night, Matt asked for her home phone number and it was the beginning of their love story. They were married in 2006 when Natalie was 18 and Matt was 21. “People were worried because we were so young, but we never had any doubts. God brought us together at a young age, and being in the center of our marriage, he has kept us together.” said Natalie

“The first years were tough since we were both full time students, but what mattered the most is that we were doing it together and having fun along the way” said Matt. Matt finally graduated from Pharmacy school in 2012, and they decided to follow their dreams and move to sunny Southern California, where they currently reside. This year they will be celebrating 8 years of marriage and a love that continues to grow stronger as time passes.
