Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Brady!! There were married on the most perfect Friday in February at The Mackey House in Savannah, GA! Mossy oak trees, a pond, a gorgeous plantation home, pretty little sunlit paths and gardens, lovely getting ready rooms, it was a beautiful venue for this wedding so full of FUN, love, and laughter!
I had the honor of photographing Tori and Tim’s engagement session, which you can see here! These two are so gorgeous, their love for each other is all over their faces, and we had such a fun evening together in the cotton! They were so easy to direct, and the passion and chemistry was off the charts! Fast forward 4 months, and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world, witnessing and capturing their love all over again!
Tori was one of the most gorgeous brides I have ever seen! Her dress, hair, flowers, bridesmaids… her EVERYTHING… is what photographer’s dreams are made of! Tim was so cool, fun, kind, calm, and just a happy guy the whole day. He greeted me with open arms and made me feel like a special guest. Since I worked with them previously, I felt more like a friend showing up with a camera, rather than another vendor. That is a big reason why I give complimentary engagement sessions with my weddings!
I could go on and on about all the wonderfulness of this day! This is a wedding where I would love to post an entire gallery! These two, and their whole bridal party for that matter, cannot take a bad photo! It was super hard picking a selection from the hundreds of photos that I adore! From the ahhhmazing layers of her dress that photographed so beautifully in the sunshine, the first look which i always LOVE, the bride and groom portraits, to the adorable little flower girl and ring bearer, first look with daddy, and fun times in the bridal suite and man cave! There were special (and hilarious) surprises at the ceremony, so much FUUUUN and laughter at the reception, emotional toasts and dances, and the super special cake handmade by Tori’s grandma, supported by the cake stand from her parents’ wedding 25 years ago! Other memorable moments include”Pony” filling the air at the start of the garter removal, which always holds a special place in my heart since I was as extra in MAGIC MIKE XXL (I bet you didnt know that!)! The awesome dance floor of The Mackey House lights up different colors, and it was packed all night thanks to the great songs played by their very own Dave the DJ! I love to dance, and I’m always dancing a bit as I photograph– but when the Wobble comes on, I must put my camera down and go for it. Yep, that is what I did! The happy couple and their family and friends ended the evening with an always awesome sparkler exit, then loaded up the trolleys to head downtown! I still need to hear all about it and see some photos, because I bet it was the best time ever.
So here are some of my favorites Tori and Tim, and I hope you love them too! I enjoyed every moment of my time with you, and I wish you all the love, laughter, success, and happiness one lifetime can possibly bring! Thank you again for choosing me to be a part of this special day. Love you both!!
