Four months after the fact, here she is. 

It isn't that we have been reluctant to share her with the world, but it is simply that time has flown. She is... everything.

Augusta GA Wedding Photographer: Michelle and Seth

Prior to these moments, I treasured two crumpled images.

Michelle and I were raised in an age without cell phones, and especially selfies. We weren't able to daily afflict the world with traffic light snapshots of our flannel, Docs, and acne (and this is a good thing). We slathered glitter over every inch of our exposed body, donned baby barrettes in our freshly bleached hair, and pored over the new Delia's catalog as we listened to both parent-approved and unapproved music. We shared each other's closets, and took each other's brothers to prom. We gave each other both wise and horrible advice as we navigated boys, school, and church. We were good friends for nearly a decade.

Augusta ga Glamour photographers: Art in the stillness

 

We can say so much for weddings, as we have many of them this fall. We love big budgets, silk gowns, and smiles for days. We enjoy people; family and friends who fill up every pixel of a captured moment. Patterned and busy, in this age of pinterest we all work so hard to create a theme that drips down walls, and spills over tables. Weddings are about the bride and groom (and we try so hard as photographers to make it that way), but they are also about everyone else. The men, maids, relatives, and friends; it is about those who came before, but also the ones who come later. "This was my wedding." What an honor it is to curate those memories.

Easiest ever half up tutorial... Wedding hair in Augusta GA

Although I do feel like a bit of a "star" in front of my husband's camera, and perhaps I on occasion wear a bit more makeup than is required by a Tuesday morning; there are only a rare few events when we girls get to dress up beyond a certain age. I am privileged to be a part of a church where volunteers are treated like starlets one night each January, and Friday night is the night. Friday night is the "Big Show." 

By now, all of us have purchased dresses (or borrowed them from a girlfriend's closet), fitted our dancing shoes, and we are all thinking of how our hair and makeup will compliment our ensembles (and if you weren't, and now you are panicking, you are welcome;). As per tradition, I am bringing a few tutorials to the table, hoping to make the hair and makeup part just a bit simpler.
