Jenny & Darin Engagement-55A bright, sunny day… Blue skies… No clouds to be seen…
Soft breezes blowing curled wisps of auburn strands…
Laughter, smiles…

And¬†love in the air…

Such was the afternoon this past Sunday, when I met with young, engaged couple Jenny & Darin for their Engagement Photo Session.


– smiling, energetic, talkative, a poet…Jenny & Darin Engagement-1
Darin– calm, reserved, with a quiet humor…

It’s a case of “opposites attract”…

You can see clear away that the two balance each other out though, bringing out the best in each other. There’s a comfort between them, and within the session, playfulness soon eased its way in, making for some light and fun captures.

As the couple had not been to Ellijay before, we took a stroll along the new Boardwalk downtown, and around the storefronts of the square. Along the way we took opportunity where mood struck, capturing shots behind cafes, on fire escapes, posed on random benches and light posts, and finally ending at the steps of the beautiful court house.

Jenny WilkieIt was a pleasant afternoon, and one in which I learned a little of this couple- They have been engaged a year and are expecting. Jenny is from Savannah, and loves ivy. And that they have been through a lot but are supportive of each other, carrying a love and friendship that can get them through anything.

Congratulations on your engagement, Jenny & Darin. We wish you all the best as you begin this journey of a new life together.

A Special Valentine…


Valentine’s Day.

A day of celebrating love…

I absolutely love black & white photography.

I believe it brings with it something raw, classic, simple, and interesting.

It strips away all the distractions, leaving just beauty and truth.
