Kady & Jake's Wedding at In the Woods in Rockmart, Georgia

We love when the weather calls for rain all day and then it ends up being a beautiful summer day. Kady and Jake are two of the most genuinley kind people. We are so happy they got their perfectly sunny wedding day!

Kady and Jake spent the whole day at In the Woods. The girls got ready in the adorable bridal cabin and the guys had the pool house. We love weddings there. It is plenty of space to house the whole bridal party and family without the risk of the bride and groom running into each other.

As a parent, it makes my heart happy to see supportive family on both sides. These two had great parents. Kady’s first look with her Dad was one of the sweetest moments!

Enjoy a few photos from their wedding day!

A Saturday in Cartersville | Farmers Market

As wedding photographers, often, Saturday’s are long work days for us. The Saturdays that we are not photographing weddings, we try to make the most out of the day. This year, the Cartersville Farmers Market has become a favorite of ours. After a coffee run, we take our four year old to see what all is going on.

We have always love the idea of buying local. It’s even better to learn that some of the farms are within minutes from our house. We’ve got to met new vendors, hear local music, and enjoy the vibe our small town on a summer Saturday morning.

Engagement Session in Acworth, Georgia by Kristin Faye Photography

Summer & Wesley


When Justin and I met Summer and Wesley at their house, they greeted us with such hospitality. We of course talked about their wedding day and we shared all that we do, but we may have talked more about her chickens and building a house. That meeting was more like hanging out with a friend. A few weeks after our meeting, the weather allowed for us to do their engagement shoot. It couldn’t have been sweeter and it did end up raining on us at the end leaving us with super cute umbrella photos :)






Patcraft Flooring | Cutting Edge Pediatric Therapy

I have the privilege of taking photos for a great company called Patcraft. I am considered an outsider in the flooring world, and I think that’s an advantage. When I go into companies to take photos of the Patcraft flooring that is installed, it ends up being more than just details of the floor and photos. While at a photoshoot, I get to learn about these companies, their story, and their “why”. I often leave feeling inspired and encouraged to continue following my passion, photography.

A few weeks ago I visited a company in Allen, Texas called Cutting Edge Pediatric Therapy. I was kindly welcomed by the staff and then toured the facility. Kate and Joe Lundgren are the proud owners of Cutting Edge Pediatric Therapy. They are an occupational, speech, and physical therapy clinic that specializes in children with special needs, spectrum-related disorders, and sensory integration dysfunction.

I could tell that this company was different. It was clear that this was Kate and Joe’s passion. Over lunch, I chatted with both to learn more about why they are doing what they do. Because of their personal experience with their own children, their hearts are committed to helping other children.

Both of their boys were diagnosed with Autism. Kate was an occupational therapist at the time of their diagnosis. After the diagnosis, Kate and Joe knew their paths needed to follow their head and hearts- into the field of Autism, so they could understand what that diagnosis meant and would mean for the future of their family. At the time, options for treatment were limited. So from there, Kate developed an all inclusive plan for her boys.

Walking through their facility, I kept stating how their place was a haven of a place that would be fun for anyone to visit. Cutting Edge Pediatric Therapy is more than just a place for therapy, it’s a place their clients can look forward to visiting, a place where their clients can grow, and a place that would make any client feel loved.

“We chose Patcraft because of the range of design options in their carpet tile. We loved to see all of the different ways to arrange the Color Pop tiles on their website. It made designing our space a lot of fun to plan.”

A Dreamy Open-Field Wedding with a Mountain View

Ainsley & Jacob, and their family, beautifully executed a dreamy open-field wedding. They had the location just off a gravel road in the middle of tall wheat colored grass with a humble mountain in the background. This was a dreamy setting for an Georgia October wedding. It was classy and inviting. They had church pews, window arches, and the most perfect white puffy clouds in the sky. If you can’t tell already, this wedding made my heart happy!









Berry College Wedding by Kristin Faye Photography

Danielle & Matt

 

Some places you visit, you simply pass through on your way to others, and some places get into your blood and stay forever. And so it was for our Bride, Danielle. Shortly after arriving at Berry College's campus to start her undergrad career, Danielle knew that Berry College would forever hold a special place in her heart. That's why she returned with her fiance to add another chapter to her love story with Berry College.

As photographers we love the way a wedding day can come together so flawlessly and beautifully. That is how Olivia and Ridge's day was. They had a traditional Methodist Ceremony followed by a stunning Reception at the Macon Terminal Station. Their day was filled with family and friends, lots of love and laughter, and the most beautiful floral arrangements you'll find. We love getting to share these moments with our couples. They are truly special to us and we will forever be grateful to have captured their special day.

Enjoy:)

Engagement Shoot in Downtown Atlanta

Y'all! How perfect is it that Matt & Lauren will be Mr. and Mrs. Paris and their shoot was at Paris on Ponce in Atlanta. Yes, it was planned, but I'm still obsessed! This couple makes a great team! They are parents of the cutest little pup, Mr. Baxter who also joined us for engagement photos. These are colorful and fun!

 

 

 

Lexie's Bridal Session at The Corner District Studio

This was a special session for me. I grew up with Lexie and her two other sisters. We played sports together, had sleep overs, and spent many Halloween's together going through her parents "haunted" garage. I couldn't have been more excited to help document the memories building up to her wedding day and her wedding (which will come later).

Our original plan was to do an outdoor shoot at Berry College. That day decided to be 50 degrees and rained off an on, so we turned to option #2- not a lesser option either, just an indoor one that was PERFECT! We did her shoot at The Corner District Studio in Ballground, Ga. Here are a few from Lexie's Bridal Session! Enjoy :)

Vineyard Wedding at High Holly- Chris & Jaime

The mountains have always been one of our favorite places to visit. We were so excited when Jaime & Chris- a Florida couple, asked us to shoot their wedding in Scaly Mountain, North Carolina. Considering this fall has been more on the warm side, their wedding day felt like a perfect fall day. It was chilly and the leaves were beginning to really turn making this vineyard/mountain wedding breath taking.

The feel of their wedding day was laid back, calm, and sweet. Their ceremony was like a worship service with a cross in the center and songs of worship were played with guest joining in. 

One thing that stood out past the gorgeous venue, couple, and perfect weather was the true and undeniable joy that the two of them had. It was contagious and inspiring! <3

Jessica & Jamison's Downtown Marietta Wedding

I can not believe that I am sitting here writing Jessica and Jamison's wedding day blog. Time truly passes so quickly! It has been such a joy to work with them. There are three things that I have learned about Jessica and Jamison. They are hard working, kind hearted, and so sweet together as a couple. I could't be happier for them as they begin their life together as Mr. and Mrs. Daniels! Congratulations!!

Lee & Amanda's Wedding at Grand Oaks in Cartersville, Ga

Amanda is the kind of girl that has that certain kind of smile that is contagious. It makes you feel happy just seeing it. She also has this amazing group of friends that makes any girl wish she had them on their side. The Bridesmaids along with the Groom each wrote notes to Amanda, and put them in a super cute box. During the reading, there wasn't a dry eye around. One thing was evident, each girl had their own very special relationship with the bride!

One of my favorite parts from any wedding is after the first kiss, when the bride and groom go in for the big “we did it” hug! I love it! Keep scrolling to see:)

 

Victoria & Cole's Southern Wedding at Sandy Creek Barn

For several months the groom's mother and I had been preparing for Victoria + Cole's wedding on July 16th at the elegant Ritz Carlton Sandy Creek Barn located on Lake Oconee, Georgia. This lovely historic barn housed their wedding and guests with a true southern elegance. Beyond the details and gorgeous decor, their wedding day was so special because friends and family came from all over the United States to celebrate this couple, & I could definitely feel the love in the air! What a privilege to capture such beautiful moments!

Landon + Ansley's 5 Year Vow Renewal

These high school sweethearts got married July 2, 2011. Landon + Ansley decided to do a small ceremony at that time because he was in the Army and his brother was deployed at the time they got married. Exactly five years later, Landon + Ansley had their vow renewal in Adairsville, Georgia. 

One of the things Landon + Ansley were looking forward to the most about their vow renewal was having all of their friends and family there to celebrate with them. One thing that stood out as a favorite part of their renewal day was that even though they still have a big ceremony, both Landon and Ansley were totally relaxed and were able to enjoy the entire day! 

 

Barrette + Chase's Wedding in Cartersville, Georgia

Barrette + Chase had a classic southern yet modern wedding in the heart of Cartersville, Georgia. Their day was filled with close friends and family by their side. Their ceremony took place at Barrette's family church, Sam Jones United Methodist. ( Check out their family tradition of the family shot on the front steps!) 

Just down the road from the church, Barrette + Chase continued to celebrate their special day at the Booth Western Museum. From some of the finest catering in town to the best wedding band, their wedding night was a success! Check out a few pictures from their wedding day!
