Being featured on a popular wedding blog is always such a huge and exciting accomplishment! When I took the trip for this “Spring in the City” inspired shoot, I was hoping to capture something amazing and break out in the realm to be an Atlanta Wedding Photographer.

It can always be risky to go out of town for a styled shoot, because often times you’re working with completely new vendors and unfamiliar areas. But, I had the most amazing time traveling through Atlanta!

I hope you enjoy the feature!

And a special thanks to Oak & Pine Photography for putting on this amazing styled shoot, as well as these awesome team of vendors who made this shoot happen:

Savanna Makeup

Paper Goods + Calligraphy
JW Paper Creations


Cassandra Paul Events
