I'M ESTHER

Hi, there! (Virtual hug!)

photographer & happy soul

I get invited to all the best weddings. I meet all the fun people. I eat all the cake. And this is my job! Who wouldn't be happy? Oh, and I get to do this in the prettiest places on earth. And did I mention cake?

1. I’m serious – really serious - about what I do. But little else, honey. Serious about serious stuff. Light and easy about all the rest. Weddings are that perfect combination of really serious and really fun. Just like me, honey.

2. I am not afraid of any man who hates to have his picture taken. Not at all. I am married to one. I have raised two, and I know how to sweet talk them and I know how to serious talk them. Which basically means I know how to remind them that there’s food and liquor at the end of this so let’s go.

3. On wedding days I have given a stiletto-heeled bride my comfy flats and walked barefooted around Forsyth Park. I have parked illegally everywhere in the South so we can hop out for the perfect shot. (Everybody in the South is laid back EXCEPT the parking police, but honey, their little tickets don’t scare me one little bit.)

4. On your wedding day, I will bring an assistant who will do ANYTHING to make the day go smoothly. She will do all the running and getting and moving and dress fluffing. Because honey, I love bridesmaids but they are drinking mimosas and NOT being a maid to the bride. I bring a professional bridesmaid.

5. I love wedding photography because it preserves this most important day for future generations. Case in point. One day, when my daughter was young, she noticed a framed wedding portrait and exclaimed, "Daddy used to have hair?" See? It's really matters.

Do what you love and never work a day in your life.

said A VERY SMART PERSON

This is Tabitha

Behind that beautiful, kind smile is an organizational queen, honey. She is the person who handles all booking, contracting and invoicing. She communicates with our clients to schedule engagement and bridal shoots, create detailed wedding day photography timelines and lists of family photos.  She basically keeps my head on straight. And yours, too.

She is a wife, mom to three beautiful, smart, sassy daughters and one of my favorite people in the world. She also makes those very Southern, very delicious 15-layer cakes with chocolate icing. Which is why she's at the very top of my list of favorite people.

a trust i don't take lightly

Documenting a wedding is an immense responsibility. A wedding day must be captured perfectly and preserved for future generations to cherish. I never stop working hard to be worthy of the trust  my clients place in me.

The APPROACH

YOUR WEDDING DAY

and how we capture it perfectly

Rest assured I will capture every big moment. But I will also look for the small, quiet moments. Your mom watching as you dance with your father. Your grandmother as you show her the pendant you carried with your grandfather's photo. You hugging your dad one last time before driving away.

It's a day filled with emotional moments, and I will capture every precious one so you can treasure them forever.
