Downtown Athens engagement shoot: Stephanie and John Hunter

I am so excited that I am finally sharing these photos! I got to spend a sunny, beautiful winter day in downtown Athens with new friends shooting their engagement photos. Doesn't get much better than that. 

To Stephanie and John Hunter: You two are the sweetest, silliest, most genuine couple, and spending time with you really made my weekend. I am praying for your wedding day, and I cannot wait for that day to come! It's going to be so much fun to see you two start your new life together, and I am privileged to document that beautiful day for you. 

So without anything further, here are Stephanie & John Hunter, the future Mr. and Mrs. Bowen! 

Will & Joy: San Souci Farm Wedding

Will Fortanbary: Incredibly driven. Loyal and loving.  Honest. Wants to change the world.

Joy Gannaway: Whip-smart. Radiant. Compassionate. Strong, and absolutely stunning. (The puns never cease, so I will also say she is JOYFUL).

Words cannot describe how perfect this day was.  

From the details of the flowers, Joy in her perfect dress, the beautiful farm and that killer sunset sunset, to how hilarious the groomsmen were, the stunning and sweet bridesmaids, and just how ridiculously in love Will and Joy were. Their happiness was infectious and it undoubtedly made the entire day such an incredible gift to be a part of. 

These two are an incredible example of a Christian couple who follow the path that God has set out for them. They are always smiling, always loving and unfailingly faithful, and it was clear that their friends and family looked on at their marriage in awe and wonder. I am so excited for them on the start of their journey together and I cannot wait to see where their love for each other and God takes them! 

Here are some of the images from their awesome day, which also happened to be Will's birthday. So happy birthday and happy wedding day to Will and Joy Fortanbary! 


Happily ever after to the sweetest couple in the world.


Nina & Joey -- Winter Park Florida wedding photographer

It is so crazy the way life works sometimes.

I met Nina way back in 1999, at Lakemont Elementary, and we graduated high school in the same class from Winter Park High.  If you had told my nine-year-old self that I would be spending the day with Nina Royal on her wedding day, I would have thought you were insane. I love how people easily come back into your life as if they never left! 

I am so glad that Nina has found her person. This was a day filled with love and happiness, and I am so excited to see what Nina and Joey do in their shared life ahead of them. They are a blast, and crazy in love. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Cheers: To Nina & Joey! XO!
