Where do I even begin with these two . . . some of my favorite people on the planet . . . and one of my favorite engagement sessions ever! Heather and I go way back. We grew up going to Sullivan’s Island Elementary school together and reunited again in high school at Ashley Hall.  I always thought she was just the coolest and although we may have overlapped in Boulder, Colorado without even knowing it, we lost touch for several years. It wasn’t until she moved to Savannah to attend Savannah College of Art and Design while I was a photojournalist for the Savannah Morning News that we truly connected again, as if fate was determined to keep us in each other’s lives.  Boy was I lucky to have her there and we grew to be close and fast friends.  Through all this, I got to witness the beginning of her relationship with Brandan and her excitement over this incredible guy was blindingly evident from the start.  Before too long, he moved to Savannah to be with her and start his residency. They were like two of the cutest peas in a pod I’d ever seen . . . so happy together with a light and playful energy that shined as bright as the stars in the sky.  One of my favorite experiences with these two was playing dress up and celebrating the new year together in San Francisco, a place near and dear to their hearts. It’s where they met and where Brandan returned with her to propose.  The images below were taken at Brandan’s family land in Chattanooga, TN . . . complete with an antique barn that is a dream for any photographer, or at least this photographer!  The backdrop suited them perfectly, as their wedding will also take place in the mountains (of North Carolina) this summer, with a very different but equally special and photogenic barn.  Check out Heathers design studio, Patch, to see how incredibly creative she is.  With ideas like these I can’t wait to see what neat details will appear at her wedding!  I’m unbelievably blessed for the opportunity to capture their wedding memories and I love these guys tremendously. I just know you will too!  Enjoy!

    Hunter! You are amazing! I still can’t believe your talent- the photographs are awesome and I’ll never forget how you made that day so special, relaxed and fun. It’s sweet to see them up!

  • I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. I have never seen anything as sweet, spectacular, or creative in all my life. This makes my heart so joyful; as my Mother and Father bought this property many years ago, but he passed away in 1986. He would have loved to see this! Hunter, they are just incredible!!!! I am Brandan’s Mom, and overjoyed that they found eadh other. Love to all!!!
