I happened to sign onto Facebook right as Sarah of Simply Sarah Photography liked Carly is Inspired. Naturally, I popped over to her Facebook page, and I knew right away I wanted to feature her based on her logo alone because I adore calligraphy. Then I found myself glued to her website’s homepage watching her gorgeous photography reel, and I was sold after I read that she grew up listening to her grandma tell the story of how her grandma met her grandpa and fell in love. Photographers with heart are my favorite because I hope you’ll feel the same way.
Aside from calligraphy, I will never tire of rustic weddings, fun couples, and beyond gorgeous dresses. Today’s wedding has all three in spades. I love that Michelle and Dan were married on a family friend’s farm complete with a classic red barn, and their portraits are some of my favorites. The way these two act around each other is beautiful, and just wait until you see Michelle’s dress. Ohmyword. Before your eyes see all of the pretty, take a moment to read Sarah’s note about Michelle and Dan. This bride definitely was in the right frame of mind.
A note from Sarah of Simply Sarah Photography: “Dan and Michelle said ” I DO” on April 20th, 2013 at the farm of a family friend in Newnan, Georgia. The backdrop for the ceremony and reception was a big beautiful red barn and the venue fit so perfectly with the couple’s laid back and easy personalities. Michelle was easily the most cool, calm, & collected bride I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. “Dress not here? No big deal! Makeup artist cancelled on me the day before my wedding? No, big deal-I’ll find another! We’re running behind schedule? Oh, well, it will all fall into place before I walk down the aisle!” She was constantly saying that at the end of the day if she was going to be married to Dan then the entire day went perfectly. What a TRUE testament of love. Speaking of Dan he was absolutely beaming at Michelle all night long, it wasn’t hard to see that he is absolutely completely smitten with her infectious personality. Love them! The two were seriously the best clients and I am so honored that they chose me to capture their special day!”
