What an honor to take Ellie’s newborn photos. I took her big brother’s newborn photos two years ago. This session was extra sweet! So surreal to see one of my dear friends become a mommy of two and now a family of 4.
The words intentional and power couple were the most commonly used words to describe Courtney and David during their wedding weekend. The rehearsal dinner was full of sweet words recognizing the couple and how well they fit together! After spending a weekend with them and their family those words could not be more true.
I knew David through his sister, Rebecca. Rebecca and I went to college together, then moved to Atlanta and lived together for about two years before she got married. So it was such a treat to celebrate and be with the Thomas family again! When I met Courtney in person I felt like we already knew each other and it was such a joy to get to know her and her family more over the weekend.
One thing I loved about Courtney and David is how intentional they each are as individual's when it comes to loving their friends and family. They are both goal oriented, hard workers, and kind. Then when you see them as a couple and how they operate together, it truly is a power couple.
The weather was less than desirable and rained all weekend, BUT plan B ended up being better than what any of us could have expected. Plan B included getting ready and taking photos at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, which was absolutely beautiful for the first look and couple portraits. Everything ran so smoothly even with the changes that needed to be made due to rain.
Here's a sneak peek into their wedding day!
The First Look!
Best dip of 2019 goes to David!
Courtney's First look with her Dad took place right before the ceremony.
The rain cleared up a little after the ceremony, just in time for cocktail hour.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. David Thomas!

"I vow to be less hangry" - Phoua
Phoua and Sy are a perfect fit for each other! They are both so genuine, supportive and real with each other. My favorite vow from Phoua to Sy was when she vowed to be less hangry! haha. Hangry is a real thing in my life, so I can only imagine having to make the same vow to my future husband one day! haha.
Phoua and Sy got married at Stone Mountain in the Historic Square and had their reception in a ballroom at Royal China Restaurant. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun learning about some of their traditions and celebrating with them!
Here's a glimpse into their wedding day!
I love a good veil shot and Phoua had a gorgeous long veil!
Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Vo!

"Hey, do you have any gum?" - Logan
This was the question Logan would ask Mallory just so he could exchange a few sentences with her when he first laid eyes on her at school. He told me he was so nervous and had no game, so he would ask for gum. He eventually got the courage to slide into her DMs where he said still reflected in him having no game. haha. Well buddy, I'd say you do have some game because on Saturday you married your dream girl!
Their friends and family were so fun and welcoming to my team as we captured video and photos throughout the day. They sure do know how to celebrate BIG!
They had perfect weather at The Inn at Oak Lawn Farms in Carrollton, GA. on Saturday.
Enjoy this sneak peek into their wedding day!
P.S. And for you guys out there who don't know what to say to your dream girl... Take a page out of Logan's book and just ask her if she has any gum! ;-)
Logan and Mallory exchanged letters before the ceremony
Mallory had a first look with her Dad. First Looks are always SO sweet!
Not only did Logan get emotional as he saw his Bride walking down the isle to him,
but so did most of the groomsmen. So sweet!
I love the way these two look at each other!
I walked by the grooms CAKE the first time because I didn't realize it was the cake!! It was so realistic and looked just like an open YETI cooler!
Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Denton!
