You may remember Katie + Kason from our blog post of their wedding sneak peek back in April, but we just couldn’t let you miss out on their super unique and gorgeous engagement session from this last Fall as well! K + K came up with the idea to have Nikki (one of our talented southeast photographers), meet up with them at the Peachtree Dekalb Airport for what was an absolutely AMAZING shoot. Vintage suitcases, bomber jackets, and aviators were the perfect little additions to pull off this “jet-setter” themed e-sesh. They could have easily stopped there, but we’re so glad they didn’t! They decided to meet up in one last spot: a blooming cotton field. The fields of white fluffy cotton provided a truly beautiful and serene backdrop to finish out K + K’s shoot, and we love how that whole portion of the e-sesh oozes romance. Katie + Kason, we have literally loved every second we’ve had to work with you both, thank you for having us be a part of this incredibly special time in your lives. xoxo!
There is lots to love about this wedding….Keary’ stunning dress, the wish lantern that was lit over the lake during the ceremony, the amazing cake that was made by a family member, and the poignant moments of emotion that Tyler captured so beautifully all day long. But what do we love most about this wedding? We love the fact that a little rain didn’t stop Keary and Simon, and it didn’t stop Tyler, either! This precious couple and the ever talented Tyler managed to make the best of the drizzle, and the photos from the wedding are all the more beautiful for it! See how they pulled it off in some of our favorite photos from the day below.

Today we’re bringing you a sneak of Amanda + Jordan’s gorgeous spring wedding, held at a traditional (and BEAUTIFUL) plantation home in Tennille, Georgia (owned by Amanda’s aunt!). A + J wanted to keep the event intimate at around 100 guests, which lended itself perfectly to the casual, but classy-chic decor A had planned. Amanda chose to honor her maternal grandmother by using one of her treasured handkerchiefs to wrap around the bouquet, which was such a meaningful tribute and sweet reminder. Keeping with the theme of family, we love their choice of wedding favors: a homemade relish recipe that has been passed down in A’s family for several generations, and a southern classic! It was very important to A + J that the focus of the day be the love and memories created there, and we’d say they accomplished that beautifully. We sent Paige, one of our southeast photogs, to photograph their sweet southern wedding day, and she did a gorgeous, gorgeous job. We are loving the timeless feel in each and every one of the photos, and we are so blown away by their beauty. A + J, we cannot wait to share the rest of them with you very, very soon – but in the meantime, enjoy your Sneak Peek! We are so grateful to call you part of our (once like a spark) family. xoxo!

Christy + Stephen’s Classy and Joyful Wedding at Athens First United Methodist and The Georgian :: Athens, GA
As we’re headed into summer and some seriously hot days, we thought we’d take it back a couple of months to one of our favorite places in the world, Athens, GA in October. Christy and Stephen celebrated their absolutely beautiful big day with a couple hundred of their family and friends at some of Athens’ most beautiful venues - Athens First United Methodist Church and The Georgian. The ladies all gathered to get ready at the super-hip Hotel Indigo, before making a quick stop at the Founders Garden at UGA for Christy + Stephen’s sweet first glance. We love this wedding, we love this sweet couple, and we love these gorgeous photos (can you tell by the sheer number of couples shots we included in this blog post?!) Thank you, Christy and Stephen, for inviting us to capture your big day – we’re so happy you are a part of our OLAS family!
