{friday favorite} Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

Happy Friday everyone! I totally missed last week’s Friday Favorite. Oops! We were so busy with traveling to Atlanta and back and had a great Christmas!!! Our last quiet Christmas 😉

We’re headed to a cabin today with the family to celebrate my sister in law’s 30th birthday! Happy Birthday Ash! 🙂 Once we get back from that trip, I’ll really be getting back to work and have a ton to catch you up on. We’re starting to make some progress on the nursery and preparing for Baby Walker! I’m 25 weeks pregnant and feeling great. Here is a recent bump picture that Dusty took of me on Christmas! I’m definitely a lot bigger than the last time I posted baby bump pictures!

After Christmas morning at our new house, we went to Dusty’s parent’s house (aka Lady & Pops). I just love this picture of Dusty and Pops. Like father like son 🙂 Pops got this new guitar for Christmas and was so excited!

{friday favorite} Leiper’s Fork Engagement Session

Happy Friday everyone! I’m excited to share some of my favorite images from a recent engagement session in Leiper’s Fork, TN. I love this little, tiny town and all the great locations we were able to find! I met up with John and Katie (John is a good friend from growing up) and we had a great time! I’m very excited for their wedding next June at Barnsley Gardens in GA! John & Katie drove to Nashville for the weekend so we could do their engagement pictures. It was so much fun catching up with John and getting to know Katie! They are adorable and I can’t wait for their wedding!

{friday favorite} Erin & Danny’s Fall wedding part I

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry for the late post! I’ve been working nonstop on this wedding and am SO SO excited to share it! In fact, I’ve had such a hard time narrowing down images so this will be spread out across a couple of blog posts so stay tuned for more!

You might remember Erin & Danny from their winter engagement session in Nashville last year. I just adore these two. I’ve had such a great time getting to know them, their families and I already know most of their friends! I shot Erin’s matron of honor’s wedding in April– Erin & Blake. It was so much fun to see everyone again at another wedding 🙂

Erin & Danny and their families put SO much work into the planning of their wedding. The details alone… I could have shot ALL day long! In fact, we got to Barnsley Gardens very early and didn’t really plan to shoot for another 3 or 4 hours. Once we realized how many wonderful details and decor there was, we just started shooting. We took more pictures at this wedding than any other!

Barnsley Gardens is one of my absolute favorite places to shoot — add in Amy Osaba and it’s just overwhelmingly beautiful! If you haven’t seen her work you have to check out her website.

Well, here are some of my favorites! Get ready for DETAILS, DETAILS and more DETAILS 🙂 And of course, a few of the lovely bride & groom!

Erin you are simply beautiful 🙂

I am so in love with this shot. 🙂

Erin and her adorable little girl Ainsley:

Lookin good Danny!

PLEASE look at this adorable napkin. Ainsley drew this and they used it for their save the date 🙂 LOVE

Now THIS is how you do a candy bar. UNREAL. I loved every part of this!
