I owe an apology to Laura for not getting these posted sooner!
Laura's mom, Carol, set the bar high for me, coaxing Laura and her family to come to Signal Mountain from Atlanta for VERY CASUAL portraits. She wanted them to feel completely natural and unaffected and wanted all black and white.
Well, while they're maybe not completely candid, the photographs ended up very warm and casual. I think I caught the fun that seems to define her gang!
We're thankful to be so busy! I hope this tease gives her a glimpse of all the other wonderful casual and candids from the session. I can't wait to show her the rest.

Sarah and Matt had the most perfect wedding day! With wonderful weather, we were able to make family portraits outside in the garden at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, followed by an inspirational ceremony in the beautiful sanctuary.
Their fabulous reception was held at the Hunter Museum. What a unique venue for a party! There was plenty of space for a delicious buffet, sofa groupings, gorgeous floral arrangements, and special lighting effects.
Their Sound Force DJ kept the dance music going, and the guests kept the dance floor occupied all evening.
At the end of the celebration, we all wished them a fond farewell as they headed off for their new life together.
Tish said her girls are BIG smilers! Well, I'm inclined to agree.
However, when Audrey and Ella are a bit pensive, the show those beautiful eyes! I feel like I caught both for Tish and her task will be tough, choosing how she wants to remember her twins.
They were enthusiastic and at the same time patient with us adults as we fawned over them and cajoled them, looking for perfection.
I'm just sure that I've captured a little slice of mischief and a bit of angel in both.
