Chattahoochee Country Club | Gainesville, GA | May 4, 2019
In my first years of my business, I shot on my own. Second shooters weren’t as common 10+ years ago when I started my business. A few years in, I started to add second shooters when clients would request one. I had a couple of photographer friends shoot with me here and there until I added Ben exclusively to my team. He’s been shooting with me for nine years becoming my go-to second shooter when clients requested a second shooter. In 2015, we decided to include Ben as a full-time second shooter and include him in all packages for my clients and two years later, we added Evie to the team! Almost all of my packages come with a second shooter unless the wedding is a smaller one in which I can comfortably do it on my own.
Jesse contacted me earlier this year from a referral from Elizabeth’s amazing hairstylist, Robin Johnsen, from Rose + Mae. They both checked out my work and were very interested in hiring me as their wedding photographer. They were having a smaller, low-key wedding out in Gainesville. The only problem: I was booked that day for Amber and Tyler’s wedding that day. I offered the opportunity to hire my services using my one of associate photographers. As Ben was already booked to work with me at Amber and Tyler’s wedding, I asked Evie if she would be interested in doing it. After discussing with all parties involved, we decided that Evie would be a great fit for Elizabeth and Jesse’s wedding!
Evie said they had the best time at their wedding! Their smaller and intimate wedding was a perfect day for everyone! It rained off and on all day just as it did while I was at Amber and Tyler’s wedding, but they made it work! Their ceremony was at a cute church out in Gainesville and their reception was at the Chattahoochee Country Club. I found that to be a little funny as I was shooting Amber and Tyler’s reception ON the Chattahoochee River, but the reception location is called Roswell River Landing while Evie was a Chattahoochee Country Club on Lake Lanier! I found that a little funny.
Elizabeth and Jesse’s couple pictures from the Chattahoochee Country Club are gorgeous. The Chattahoochee Country Club is right on the lake in a marina, so there’s a dock to take pictures right on the lake. These are my favorite pictures of Jesse and Elizabeth on their wedding day. Evie did a great job capturing some sweet moments between the two of them!
Thank you so much Elizabeth and Jesse for trusting our team and having Evie join you for your special day! I’m glad to see y’all have enjoyed the pictures so far!
I love these sweet moments between Elizabeth and her mom A sweet note from Elizabeth to her Daddy Elizabeth and Jesse opted for an opportunity to read personal vows to each other behind the door before seeing each other at the ceremony. Allie and George did this last year and I thought it was the sweetest thing! I laughed out loud as I scrolled through the pictures Evie took and saw little ring bearer not wanting to join the pews! Time to get married! I love these on the dock! This spot at Chattahoochee Country Club is perfect! Big Atlanta United fans! Beautiful Elizabeth! I’ve never seen a dress like hers before. I loved it! Saying goodbye to a wonderful day!
Thanks to the amazing vendors who added to their special day!
