About Me

My photo
North Georgia, United States
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and photography is my passion. I used to be a successful fine artist, but since I shot my first wedding I never looked back. I am madly and completely in love with weddings, I guess it is the romantic in me :)

Little Wesley McCrackin

On August 14th little Wesley came into this world. What a cute baby......and I want to wish his parents Angel and Zack the very best in their life ahead. I have known Zack since he was a little boy and he has turned out to be a wonderful daddy, I can already tell and what can I say about Angel, except she is truly an angel.

Ansley and Jared!

What a fun time with Ansley and Jared......even though it was so very humid. Lucky we decided to do the engagement session in the morning. Right now you just don't know when it will rain.........crazy weather we have had up here this summer.
Thanks Ansley and Jared for an enjoyable morning ..... you are both great!

Extreme Heat!

When oh when will it cool down. We just came back from an engagement session which we started at 10 AM and it already was hot when we started. I like warm, can tolarate hot, but humid is nasty.........

Trash the Dress Session!

Yesterday we had the pleasure of doing a Trash the Dress Session with Mandi and Jeremy who will be getting married in November. The water was a little cool because of all the rain and the waterfall was a little harder to get around on because of all the extra water, but we managed and got some really nice photos. I it always hard to maneuver around the waterfall with our cameras, but yesterday was specially hard since the rocks seemed even more slippery then the times before. I thought I was real smart when I sat down to come down from one of the ledges figuring I would not slip to far if I did. Well.........that was the wrong assumption :( the minute I sat on the rock I went sliding down to the next ledge. I felt very fortunate that the camera did not go in the water and I seemed ok........until this morning hahahaha I guess coming down hard on the next ledge did not do my lower back any good. I don't know why they call it a funny bone, because today it sure does not fell funny at all. Ah well, it is what it is and tomorrow it will hopefully better, so what that I can hardly walk or sit today...... Yesterday was soooooooo much fun :)
Thank you Mandi and Jeremy........for a wonderful time.

Another Mountain Day!

Tomorrow we are shooting an engagement session and Friday a Trash the Dress Session by my favorite Waterfall. Since I had not been down there since last year Steve and I took a drive to see what shape the road was in. Welllllllllll it is ok, not great but ok and my beloved Mathilda (our car) made it in one piece. Everything was fine there except people left so much garbage........why can't people take their garbage back home instead of messing up such a beautiful place. It makes me so mad!!! Steve and I will take a garbage bag with us and pick it up Friday, but I still can't understand.
Our world is so pretty, why can't people stop and is so simple to just keep it clean.

What a DAY!!!

Today was not a perfect day by all means. I got up and started working on photos as I always do in the morning and shortly after I started the power went out. Lucky for me I have a power back up and was able to save all the things I was working on. After about 30 minutes without electric I knew this was not going to be fixed quickly so I told Steve........who lost all the work he had done on his video this morning.....we should drive to Seneca and pick up a power back up for him. So we did.....and on the way back, we were almost to the GA border we were stopped by a police car and told to turn around and go home via Toccoa since a Tractor Trailer had turned over on the road we were on. Long story short.......a little drive that should have taken 2 hours took all afternoon :)The good news was, the tractor trailer driver was ok, so what is a little detour ....... I am sure he felt a lot worse then we did, at least he came out of this alive and we eventually made it home. It is what it is and it could have been so much I am grateful for the little things today.

Summer Wedding at Lake Rabun Hotel

The wedding we covered at the Lake Rabun Hotel was lovely. We had a thunderstorm, but we were almost done with the before photos and after a little wait the ceremony could be held outside as planned. Grier and Travis were very relaxed and enjoyed their day and so did their guests.
