“Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It’s more than where you’re born, it’s an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. Its more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, beer, bourbon and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola, and each other. We don’t become Southern, we’re born that way.” -Anonymous

We’re Justin + Amanda! Husband and wife. Photographer and assistant. Film enthusiast and great cook. West Elm and Crate & Barrel. But more importantly, best friends.

We take moments. Not photos.

You’ve seen them before. That photographer at a wedding running around like a crazy person. Frazzled. Distraught. Exhausted. And most likely a good bit of sweat and despair on their face. Well, that’s not us. We promise.

Wedding days are oh so special and they should be treated this way. Yes, there is a timeline. Yes, the day will fly by. Yes, some parts will feel more rushed than others. But that’s okay. More important than all of’s your wedding day. It is a day that you will remember for the rest of your life. And we are there to help make that happen.

What is fine art photography, you ask? It’s a style of photography that emphasizes emotion. We pride ourselves in slowing down a wedding day and focusing on this emotion. We take our time. We watch carefully. We wait for it. We wait for that one special moment. Wait for it. Wait. Almost. There. The way that your husband glanced at you. The way your mom put her hand to her lips as you slip on your dress. The way that your grandmother wiped a tear from her eye as you walk down the aisle. Those are the moments we wait for. Those are the moments that you want to remember.

Favorite thing about Savannah weddings?

Savannah is saturated with history and beauty. Every angle of a wedding day tells a different and beautiful story. We are so lucky and honored to be able to tell that story.
