Our Savannah Trip Part 2 {Savannah Photographer}



It’s been a busy few days since I shared part one of our Savannah trip, so it’s taken me longer to get these pictures up. We stayed at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto and these pictures are the view from our room. 

On our way out of Savannah, we went to Bonaventure Cemetery. I admit, I did not take more than the picture of Little Gracie Watson and really I felt bad doing that. Not sure exactly why.

Our next stop was Wormsloe Plantation. There was a picture of it in our room and I had to go there. Really, I wanted to take a couple or a bride, but my husband posed {quickly} for me. Maybe one day I’ll get to go back and play more there. It’s really pretty, especially all the trees going in!

Love the sun coming through!

I guess Savannah was sad to see us go because this is the beginning of the storm we drove home in!

Our Savannah Trip {Savannah Photographer} Part 1

We went to Historic Savannah for a weekend away – without children, that’s the first time in over three years – so it was a long time coming! We stayed  at the Hilton Savannah Desoto, which was nice. Close  enough to River Street and lots of great restaurants! Here are some of our pictures from walking around!


We walked through Colonial Park Cemetery, which normally a cemetery would kind of freak me out, but when they have historical significance it’s kind of neat to walk through. We were not daring enough to go on the ghost tours though. Especially the ones that go through the cemetery at night. If you click on the link to the cemetery, you can read more about the cemetery and a tiny bit of one of the stories!


From the cemetery, we went to The Cathedral of St John the Baptist. It’s so pretty! It made me wish I had brought my real camera and a wider angle lens, but we still have pretty pictures 🙂



On our way to and from our hotel, we walked a different way almost every time, so we saw a lot of the squares. They’re so pretty and give you some history while walking through. We also walked through Forsyth Park. They were having rugby, a farmers market….lots of things going on while we were walking through!


Part one of  our trip! I’ll add the rest of our pictures later!

Family Beach Session {Saint Augustine Beach Family Photographer}

 Wow, I am so behind on blogging! Now I am playing catch up tonight and probably tomorrow :  )

Mrs H and I emailed, emailed, and emailed TONS prior to their beach session. And I loved her even more in person! This family is so easy going, easy to photograph, even if Miss E wasn’t a fan when I tried to pick her up, and laughed with each other and me through their whole session. So, instead of posting me favorite ‘favorite’ pictures, I am posting some of my favorite outtakes. It happens at every session, the cutest and best moments come when you least expect them! The last five minutes of this beach were no different. Check out the last picture. It’s some of the best moments from this session!

Zack and Stefanie are married! Part 2 {St Augustine Wedding Photographer}

After their ceremony at Cap’s on the Water, we headed to lunch at the The Columbia Restaurant in the historic part of St Augustine– fantastic! It has a really fun feel, lots of conversation, and laughter! The perfect spot for a celebration. The best part about this kind of intimate setting is that I was able to not only photograph the lunch, but to take part in it, as well as learning more and more about the couple through their family and friends. Leaving after hugging the bride and groom as well as her parents kind of gives you a nice feeling too. Thanks for letting me be a part of your day! Looking forward to November for your big celebration.
