The Blog Where All The Animals Got Together And Conspired To Kill Us...

So, this is my last blog of the day...Cristina and I had a wonderful weekend of weddings, but an absolute worst travel weekend ever!!! It resulted with me in tears in the middle of nowhere with no phone reception. We headed up to Jasper, GA on Thursday for Maggie and Caleb's mountain wedding on Friday. Everything went beautifully until we left the reception at around 9:30 pm. We figured it would take us about 3 or 4 hours to get to our next destination, Lincolnton, GA for Shauna and Jasen's absolutely beautiful lake wedding on Saturday. We ended up getting into town at 3:00 am. Luckily, I have some awesomely fantastical friends that were letting us crash with them at their lake house, and they tried to guide our poor lost souls until we lost reception. You see, it all started when our directions told us to go down a non-existent road. Apparently, a bridge had been washed out and we were led on a detour that suddenly ended. I was fine with being lost, I was fine from being exhausted from shooting for over 10 hours, but when the deer started leaping at the car....I was not so fine. I think it took about 5 deer before we started counting them. We drove 40 miles an hour all the way there and almost hit a big black shadowy thing. That was the scariest, because we still have no clue what it just jumped out at us...and it was BIG. I have heard these possibilities : bear, cow, horse, sasquatch. Anyway, at that point, I was no longer "ok". The tears came along with some inaudible "why me's"... Cristina, hid behind the map and pretended to know where we were. Poor Cristina had to put up with me. Anyway, 11 deer later, we were there. I had never been so happy to see my friends who waited up on me... Jessica, Kyle, Kim, and Pops. Also, I have to mention that Pops is an amazing host who cooks one heck of a breakfast! Eh, At least the weddings went well.

The total: 18 hours of driving (from thurs to sun), $170 in gas, the near miss of the following animals: 16 deer, 2 armadillos, 1 turkey, and sasquatch. Below is a map of where we went and a personal rendering of my accounts. And yes, those are tears. Needless to say, we are both glad to be home alive and my husband is buying me a Garmin!

Jennifer + Erik

So, you saw the ring posts below, but here is the beautiful couple! (more to come later)

I think this was the sweetest moment of the whole day. I'm pretty sure it was the point where Erik realized he was marrying the girl of his dreams.

Who would have guessed that this was a church gym? This is one of the most gorgeous receptions I've seen yet!

Cake=beautiful & yummyIt's nice to find a person who makes you laugh like that.
The boys decorating the limo with a lot of "armor" , beer cans, and a piñata.
They beat up the piñata before they left! The ring bearer proclaimed "A piñata! Is it someone's birthday?!"

Jennifer + Erik : The Ring Shots

Hi everyone! Molly here! We went to Lawrenceville, GA a few weeks ago to photograph Jennifer and Erik's wedding at the Salvation Army Church. We hardly ever get ample time to photograph the rings, so I took advantage because...well....I love doing ring shots. Anyway, we will post more of the actual couple a bit later...but for suspense purposes, we will show you the rings =)

Since the reception's theme was "Starry Night", I couldn't resist a little Van Gogh action.

Sex In The Milly

For those of you who didn't get the was a spin off of "Sex in the City", but the Milledgeville version. These best buddies from GC&SU are such fasionistas, and they were great fun to hang with for a little while. It was good to be a part of their last moments in Milly together.I know a few have been posted, but here are a few more.

Ron's senior shoot

Hey Everyone!
It has been a crazy, busy summer. Thanks for all of your support! Here is a few photos from a senior photo shoot here in Thomasville. This is Ron. He's a senior at Thomas County Central High School. He was such a fun guy to photograph because he was up for anything. Thanks Ron! I heard he is an awesome french horn player, so I was excited when he brought his horn to the shoot.  I love it when people bring personal props to photo shoots. Thanks for being awesome Ron. Thanks Natasha being an awesome sister too!

Jill + Byron

hi everyone, Molly here! A couple of weeks ago, I headed back to Milledgeville for a weekend of photography. I started off by shooting a really sweet wedding on Lake Sinclair. It was supposed to be a small backyard wedding, but the weather was...well...less than gorgeous. The wedding was moved to the living room of her mother's beautiful lake house and everything turned out to be perfect. About ten minutes after the wedding, the weather cleared up, the sun came out, and everyone moved to the backyard for a drink and a dip in the pool! Plus, the chicken wings were pretty much to-die-for. Now, that's what I call a wedding.

My favorite shot, the old ball and chain, literally. One of Byron's friends made it for him, and Jill has her own key.

So, I'm really not too sure how the bride and groom feel about gnomes, but I found these two in the house and could not pass up the chance to get a good ring shot.

I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not, but there were tons of cute kiddos at the pool after the wedding. I'm pretty sure they enjoyed the wedding.
