Yesterday was absolute perfection!! Kelley and Joseph, y’all are so gracious, classy and FUN! Congratulations on such a wonderful wedding day! . . Tap for some pretty amazing vendors!
I’ll just say this: My style was SO not this awesome when I was in high school. Camille, you are legit, girl 🙌 #senior2018
These two + Arabia Mountain = pure magic. Also, they’re wedding is on the blog if you wanna see more pretty 😘
I began photographing weddings with a Canon Rebel XS and kit lens. I remember telling my parents that I wanted to study photography (I was originally a theatre major), and they helped me buy my first camera. Ever since, I've been collecting new lenses over the years, upgrading my equipment and creating a collection of gear that I use for every wedding! While quality equipment does matter as you build your business, it's not nearly as important as practicing with, and understanding, the equipment that you currently have. I would be lying if I said it didn't bother me when someone looks at a photo I shot and says your camera is so amazing! It takes time and dedication to be able to photograph consistently at a high level, so don't be discouraged if you're not using the camera of your dreams at the moment! I’ve only been shooting with my dream camera for 2 years. However, if you're curious what I've got in my bag, I wrote a blog post about it 😉 👉#linkinbio
Let’s talk about that dreamy ceremony 😍 #thosewindowsthough
Y’all, my heart is so full after yesterday’s styled shoot! Months ago, I had this vision, a project that I wanted to bring to life because I loved it SO much!! And yesterday, an incredible team of vendors made it happen! @aclassyoccasion @theparterre @pastryshells @papermadelovely @lettersbylanta @katia_mielli_mua @righteousoaksfloral @shadetreeeventrentals @bekahbea @tiffany_loera @makenzie.angel Y’all were AMAZING! Thank you so much!!
Mallie and Charlie are living proof that, out of the mundane, incredible moments can happen that change the course of our lives. One day, Charlie walked into the bank where Mallie worked. Her station was the first one open, and she was the lucky notary who got to help him with his paperwork. To say they hit it off is an understatement. Charlie was so enamored with Mallie that once he walked out of the building, he immediately walked right back in and asked her to lunch! The rest, as they say, is history. Their heartfelt wedding is on the blog, y'all! #linkinbio #laurawatsonweddings
Thank the Lord for this perfect weather!! 🙌 Tomorrow, I’m heading down to Greenville, GA for a gorgeous wedding styled shoot that I’ve put together with @aclassyoccasion and so many other incredible vendors! This is definitely a first for me - I’ve never actually CREATED an inspiration shoot before!! (Y’all, it’s a lot of work!) I’m so excited for everything to begin and to take some beautiful photos! And I’ll be doing some #bts video of everything on my IG stories! I can’t post everything but I WILL post a bunch 🙌 #letsdothis
So I know the tradition is to do #fridayintroductions but frankly...I kinda love breaking traditions 😏 So #mondayintroduction here I go! In case you’re new to my instagram home, hey! I’m Laura! I’m a sucker for love stories and I’m lucky enough to be living one of my own! When I’m not photographing weddings in Georgia or on the coast, I’m most likely busy planning my own 🥂 Come May 2018 I’ll be Mrs. Laura Grover and nothing makes me happier! I actually daydream about it all. the. time #hopelessromantic So take a break this morning and introduce yo’self!! I’m not a fan of posting to a bunch of people I don’t know 😂 I’d rather just be friends!
I’ll just be over here swooning over Mallie & Charlie’s wedding photos! Also, let’s talk about that ring box 😍 #perfection
It’s a beautiful day because these two are getting married! #weddingday
My favorite part of Beth & Jed's wedding day was a little unusual. Typically, I'm instantly attracted to unique details or an emotional first dance or toast. But walking into their wedding day, I knew part of the back story. I knew how excited Beth's mom was for this day to arrive! Y’all, she set them up on MATCH! #linkinbio #proudmomma
Current wedding planning thoughts: I can't wait to see my dad on my wedding day! #daddydaughtergoals . . . 📸 of Shelly and her dad from when I got to shoot with @kvcphotography!
Lucie’s senior session just graced my blog, y’all! #minibride #classof2018
This time last year, I was resting from a double wedding weekend that included a GORGEOUS vineyard wedding overlooking the North Georgia mountains AND a super unique, FAIRY wedding in romantic Senoia, GA. One year later, and I've gotot TWO double wedding weekends this fall! I mean, how do you say no when you have two amazing brides you adore?? Since how do you shoot two weddings in ONE weekend?? is one of the biggest questions I get asked as a wedding photographer, I decided to share on the blog some tips that I've learned that lead to a seamless and extremely fun weekend with zero burnout! 👉 #linkinbio
Today is one of those rare occasions where I actually get to ATTEND a wedding and not shoot it! I'm not even bringing my camera, you guys! You'll find me with my hair down, dancing the night away with Garrett! 👈 I'm such an awkward dancer but he loves me anyway #blessed Wanna take bets on the first dancing song of the night? My money's on Cupid Shuffle!
Cheers to the ladies who stand by their best friends. To those kind, compassionate souls who make their bride's wedding day even more beautiful by sharing in the moments leading up to when she'll become a Mrs. You have no idea the joy you bring! 🥂And a special hug to my sister and best friend, I'm so excited to have you two stand by me!
Babe, you make me smile every day and my life is more joyful and adventurous with you leading the way! Thank you for loving me unconditionally and encouraging me to peruse my passions...even when I force you to take so many photos! I love you to the moon and back! Happy birthday 😘
Let's see...this week I've: ✔️Started the process of refining and redesigning my brand (with my branding & design idols, mind you!!). ✔️ Prepared to celebrate my main squeeze for his birthday! ✔️ Edited 2 weddings ✔️ Planned the catering for my own wedding (more on that later!) ✔️ Began a new hardcore marketing strategy ✌️ ✔️ Set up my blog to have new posts every week for 2 months! PHEW. I'm exhausted and I'm taking today, my first (and only) Fall Saturday not at a wedding heading up to Atlanta to celebrate Garrett's birthday with some of the best people I know!!! Guys, running a small business is full of tough decisions and hard work, but sometimes it feels as though we are working towards nothing. Sometimes we don't get the results we want or maybe we just get burned out! But it's important to step back and actually see all that you've done and where you've come from! Tell me something you accomplished this week??? 👇
When you get older, you tend to lose touch day-to-day with your closest friends. Days get busier, weeks fill up, and all that “adult stuff” gets in the way of slumber parties and deep conversations over drinks. BUT when you DO get to hang out with them again, it’s like time never got away from you and you pick up right where you left off! Tonight, I get to hang with my bestie, my only bridesmaid, the straw to my hat, and I’m so excited to catch up! So, if you’re missing your #bestie today, let ‘em know 😘
Sometimes, you just gotta be happy and have the right attitude to conquer the day! Me? I'm channeling these two right here! I'll be at today's #tuesdaystogetheratlanta meet up and I'm pumped about it! I've missed...well...the last years worth of meetings? 🙈 My track record is bad but I'm fixing that today! If you're also going, hit me up below because I want to meet you! If you have no idea what I'm talking about 👉 head over here and check it out 🤗 #communityovercompetition #risingtidesociety 🥂 And shout out to Erine-Fay and Christopher who just celebrated their anniversary!!!
5 weddings down, 6 to go! I'm thankful to have a short break until more Fall weddings, but I'm so completely in awe and filled with joy after a month full of I dos and celebrations!!! Beth & Jed, y'all made this girl's heart so happy yesterday - it was a blessing to see you both so in love! #laurawatsonweddings
With a day full of prepping October wedding timelines and making sure my gear is ready to roll for tomorrow's wedding at Frost Chapel (STOKED), it's fun to take a break and ogle over last night's engagement session in Buford 😍
Her heart was wild, but I didn't want to catch it, I wanted to run with it, to set mine free. - Atticus
