Yeeeeah…I’m going to just skip the part where it’s been EIGHT MONTHS since this blog got updated. That explanation is coming in a different post.
But if you’re a fan of our Facebook page HERE, you already know 2012 was a crazy busy year for Elle Golden Photography! All year I posted teasers of the many fabulous clients I was so blessed to have. But for the sake of starting anew for 2013 (okay, that’s a weird year to be writing out!), I decided to recap only my engagements, weddings, and personal events before moving on from the perpetual game of catch up. After these 3 blogs, it will be all about 2013 clients. If you missed out on your favorite subjects in one of my 2012 (and even a couple 2011) teasers, you can visit the Facebook page or our official gallery to see more from those particular sessions!
Shall we begin?
Tommy + Bekah | Valdosta, GA
These two were both my first engagement session AND wedding of 2012! I was super nervous photographing this engagement because Tommy and Bekah are peers in the wedding industry! They’re both videographers who dabble in photography and we met at a shared client’s wedding the previous year. We’ve since kept in touch via Facebook and Twitter and Bekah even brought me a bottle of moscato when she picked up her wedding album. They clearly know me too well! 😉
Brett + Lindsey | Thomasville, GA
I had so much fun with these two! We discovered some cool spots tucked away between buildings in downtown Thomasville. And we somehow managed to sneak in shots for their engagement album and save the dates while playing hopscotch and reciting Anchorman and Dumb & Dumber quotes!
Stephon + Jamila | Valdosta, GA
These two planned a wedding while living hours apart, so their engagement session was also a chance to spend some quality time together! Not to mention a reunion between their sweet little pups, Pearl + Paco!
Skyler + Emily | Valdosta, GA
Even mosquitoes big enough to pick us up and carry us away were no match for Skyler and Emily’s love! Between swats, they were cuddling and playing. I still can’t believe how lucky I am this former 2nd shooter of mine asked me to photograph HER wedding! She and her Marines hubby are now living allllllllll the way across the country in sunny California!
Marco + Adriana | Athens, GA
An engagement session SO worth the 4 reschedulings due to rain! I still can’t believe these two lovebirds didn’t consider themselves “camera ready”. They sure fooled me! Not to mention their session gave me the rare chance to visit my alma mater, the University of Georgia!
Rob + Jes | Macon, GA
Every now and then you meet a couple that’s willing to really play during their engagement session. Rob and Jes were that couple. I had a blast bringing out their true personalities just 2 weeks before their wedding!
Waylon + Sarah | Adel, GA
*Lesigh* The way she looks at him! And one of the first things Waylon told me about Sarah was how he couldn’t stay away from her. These two are so truly in love! Since they’re a 2013 client, you’ll be seeing more from this session soon!
Joe + Kala | St. Augustine, FL
Okay, I know I’m not supposed to pick favorites…but Joe + Kala’s engagement session may be my all time favorite! I’m obviously biased because not only is she a friend, a lot of my good friends are her bridesmaids (which means I adore her off that alone), she and her fiance are the absolute CUTEST together, AND they opted for St. Augustine as the backdrop to their engagement session (the wedding is in the FL Keys for crying out loud!). So…yeah… Like Waylon + Sarah, they’re a 2013 client so you’ll get a lot more of this session on the blog as well!
So there you have it! My engagements from 2012. I’m looking forward to so many more this year! In fact, I recently photographed an engagement session last weekend: not only my first engagement of the year, but also my first official session! I love love. ❤
