Saturday was SUCH an amazing day getting to capture Hannah & Mason’s outdoor wedding at McClain Lodge!! It was definitely my hottest wedding day of the year so far, but I wouldn’t have wanted to be doing anything else other than spending my day with them & their sweet families celebrating what God has done! This day was full of constant reminders of the Lord’s faithfulness, & it was truly the best seeing how excited Hannah & Mason were to finally become husband & wife!

I’ve known Hannah since we were in middle school together! Since being diagnosed with epilepsy, she has overcome SO many obstacles & ALWAYS gives all of the glory to the Lord! I couldn’t be more amazed by her strength & faith!! I may have teared up once or twice on Saturday, especially when I saw Hannah in her dress for the first time! She is STUNNING in every way, but it’s her amazing heart that makes her shine even more! I’m so grateful that I had the honor of capturing this season for she & Mason, & I cannot wait to see all that the Lord will continue to do through them as they keep walking through life together!!

Hannah & Mason’s day was FULL of so many special moments (the reason for me tearing up behind my camera all day!!) –  Hannah’s first look with her sweet daddy, SO many people braving the heat to witness them become husband & wife, & Hannah’s (& mine) youth pastor sharing the gospel & giving all the glory to the Lord during their ceremony! It was a day full of so much joy, & I’m so thankful that I got to be the one to capture it.

I had the pleasure of working with some of my absolute favorite vendors on this wedding day! Bethany and her team at Oak Experience pretty much did EVERYTHING – from full planning & florals to the cakes & invitations, they did an AMAZING job making Hannah’s dream day come true! I also got to work with my girl Michaela Parker of Parker Media, & I cannot WAIT to see the video she creates for Hannah & Mason! And as always, getting to shoot at McClain Lodge was the best! It was the PERFECT place for Hannah & Mason’s southern wedding celebration!!

Mr. & Mrs. McGee – I can’t thank you both enough for allowing me to be a part of your big day! It was such an honor, & I hope these photos will be a sweet reminder of all the Lord has done & will continue to do!!
