Lindsay + Matthew Engagement | Sunrise on Jekyll Island

How and where did he propose?

He took me on a surprise trip to Asheville because he knows my love for traveling and surprises! :) During our trip, we went kayaking through the mountains. After we got back to our cabin, he got down on one knee and popped the question!

Do you have any advice for other couples?

Enjoy the "little" moments together! Whether it be watching your favorite Netflix show, taking a walk, eating dinner together or just acting plain silly; we cherish these moments don't take them for granted.

 
 

Sam + Dalton's Engagement feat. sparklers!

Three things that fuel Sam + Dalton's relationship: 

Silliness, Sunday morning snuggles with our pup, and mini adventures!

 

To incorporate their favorite holiday, Sam and Dalton brought sparklers to their July engagement session!! Ah!!

I cannot wait to see the sparks flying at your wedding, you two!

 

They grow up so fast!

Back in my babysitting days, I took these munchkins to the pool every Tuesday and then it was Chick-fil-a for lunch. Not so little anymore and oh, so beautiful + handsome, it was such a joy to get together for some summer portraits. 

 
 

Erika + Hunter | Mossy Oak Farm Wedding

 

I just love this couple and was so delighted to be apart of their beautiful, rustic wedding at Mossy Oak Farm. My favorite details were Erika's amazing cotton bouquet and Hunter's feather and snake skin bow tie! Amazing! Check them out!

Describe your engagement ring:

This diamond is very special because it was once belonged to Hunter's mother and  is a diamond from 1983. Hunter described my ring as a "crown," being that it has small diamonds around every angle of this ring, and I could not agree more! He picked my ring out by himself, and every time I look down at it, I think of how lucky I am to have found this man of mine!

What led you to choose your wedding venue? What makes it special?

Everything about this venue is perfect, from the big swamp with cypress trees, the barn, a cabin, two beautiful pavilions, and just enough distance from our hometown! I knew this place was the one that was perfect for us! Mossy Oak Farm is special because it is naturally beautiful, and I do not know anyone personally that has ever gotten married here before!

Three things that fuel your relationship:

Our dogs (Cash and Harvey), hunting, and family!

Do you have any advice for other couples?

Be yourself, be each other's help mate, and love each other's strengths along with their flaws! Do not try to change your significant other! Communicate by listening and understanding one another!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Stuckey!

Real and rememberable family photos - not perfect!

The perfect family photo...everyone is ready. Mom's hair stays in place. Dad's gut is sucked in. No one is blinking and all the kids are behaving. Happens every time, right?

While that "perfect" posed group shot will look gorgeous hanging on your wall - I am out to capture the family interactions, the personalities, that little light in your kids' eyes when we holler "Was that a dolphin over there?!!" (Yes, St. Simons Island sees dolphins almost every day!)

I want to be just another participant during a family walk on the beach as we search for crabs and have foot races. Out to document how your life really can feel sometimes - wild, sweet, silly, ridiculous, beautiful, and worth it. 

Thank you, Grimsley Family for spending this gorgeous evening with me!
