Rustic and Rosy Wedding at Fair Oaks Farm


I’ll always love looking back on Anna and Jacob’s perfect wedding at Fair Oaks Farm! I remember messaging her the next day and telling her that as the team and I drove home the night before we couldn’t stop talking about how perfect everything was the entire day. Anna and her crew truly planned a flawless event. Everything was magical from the details put together by the bride, to the wedding location, to the moment Jacob saw his beautiful wife to be for the very first time walking down the aisle. I cried, the groom cried, their families cried - there wasn’t a dry eye to be found anywhere. It was such a beautiful, emotional ceremony. Their months of planning and years of dating had all come down to these precious few moments when they would become husband and wife.

The couple met while attending East Mississippi Community College and had an immediate connection. For Anna’s 21st birthday, Jacob took her to Disney World and the two later spent 4 months in Orlando working for Disney as part of an internship program. Jacob and Anna incorporated details of Disney here and there throughout their day as a tribute to their magical proposal. If you’re looking for a fairytale kind of proposal - pop the question like Jacob did to Anna with the Magic Kingdom as your backdrop! #swooning I was smitten with these two from the moment I met them, and have loved being part of their amazing journey. Working with Jacob and Anna was a true joy and I felt right at home among their family and friends on the day of their wedding. This couple loves each so other well. They build one another up, have rooted their romance in Christ, and have laid a solid foundation on which their relationship will continue to grow.

Anna and Jacob - your wedding day was every bit as perfect as you guys are! I loved capturing how you make each other smile and seeing the depth of your love for not only one another but for your loved ones. It was truly the most magical of days. I can’t thank you enough for letting me be part of such an amazing time in your lives. It means more than I can ever tell you that you entrusted me to capture your best day ever! I can’t wait for you to look back through some of my favorites from your gorgeous event! Big hugs, Shea

Elegant Black and White Wedding at Greengates


Emily and Luke’s wedding was a timeless, elegant event! This bride and groom planned a fantastic affair that would leave everyone talking! When I met Luke and Emily, I knew they would be fun to work with. They make each other smile from ear to ear. It was easy to tell that theirs was a fairytale kind of love. The two have known each other since childhood, dated while in highschool, and reconnected during football season while Emily was attending Mississippi State. While the proposal was intimate, Luke and Emily kicked off their engagement by celebrating with their dearest family and friends. That celebration would continue through the next several months leading up to their spectacular wedding, and I feel so blessed to have been able to play a small role in their adventure!

Greengates Farmhouse is a stunning rustic venue located in Stringer, Mississippi. It’s simply gorgeous with lots of sprawling acreage, large lake, and beautiful grounds. The inside of the venue is absolutely breathtaking with its brick foyer, natural lighting and lodge like feeling. The upstairs portion of the venue takes your breath away when you see the space. It was the perfect spot for Emily and Luke’s wedding! Throughout the day, I couldn’t help finding myself in awe of the planning and thoughtful attention to detail orchestrated by the amazing bride. True elegance was the reverberating theme for this particular event. While the getting ready portion of the day and the reception were to take place at Greengates, the ceremony itself was held at Raleigh Baptist Church. The couple was surrounded by so many that love them as they said their vows before God, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. After saying, “I do"“, the new bride and groom were showered with rose petals as they exited from the church where they drove away into the sunset in a sporty, black convertible. They were then welcomed back to Greengates to dance the night away with their loved ones as husband and wife. With the twinkle lights glowing, Emily and Luke enjoyed a celebration that was every bit as perfect as they are.

Emily and Luke - I could go back and photograph your day over and over again and never get tired! I have absolutely loved getting to know you two and seeing how much you adore each other. Your life together will be a very blessed and happy one I am sure. Thank you for choosing me to be part of your journey to becoming Mr. and Mrs.! Your event is one I will always remember!! I hope you enjoy looking back on your dreamy day! Big hugs, Shea

Delightful Soft Blue & Pink Wedding at Rasberry Greene


I can’t say enough great things about Taylor and Alex’s wedding day at Rasberry Greene! This couple is so easy going, joyful, and have hearts of pure gold. I met Taylor and Alex over lunch and I knew working with them was going to be so much fun. We talked over wedding plans, how the couple met and our mutual love for our furbabies. I’ve never met anyone else who has a Chorkie like my Shadow but Taylor and Alex actually have two! This couple loves animals every bit as much as I do so there was no doubt about me absolutely adoring them.

Taylor and Alex’s story began when they met working at Anderson’s Hospital. They bonded over a shared love for their professions, dogs and Grey’s Anatomy. The two dated for about a year when Alex proposed. The groom originally planned to propose at midnight on Taylor’s birthday, but as luck would have it, a bad storm would knock out the power and totally change up his plan. Alex lit several candles and popped the question with a little help from George Strait and the pups. It was such a romantic proposal and Taylor couldn’t have been more surprised.

Rasberry Greene was the perfect location for Taylor and Alex’s wedding day! The couple knew they could see themselves getting married among the pines with the large lake as their backdrop after touring the venue. It’s always easy to see why couples choose Rasberry Greene because the owners are the very definition of kindness, the grounds are stunning, the bridal suite is jaw dropping, and the Gin itself has a rustic yet intimate feel. I seriously love how much Mr. Donnie, Mrs. Lauren and Ms. Becky always go above and beyond for their couples and they bend over backwards to make their day every bit the fairy tale they want it to be. From the moment we arrived and started shooting, Taylor and Alex couldn’t have been more merry and gracious. It was the dreamiest of days truly. There were so many precious moments, gorgeous details, and times I found myself wishing their day would never end!

Taylor and Alex - I can’t thank you guys enough for letting me be part of your celebration! Yours is a day I won’t ever forget and I feel so blessed to have played a small part in it. I just think the world of you both, and know you are going to have the happiest life together! I hope you enjoy looking back on your wedding day as much as I loved being part of it! Big hugs, Shea

Oh, what a joy it was to be part of Marley and Cameron’s wedding day! These two kicked off my fall wedding season and theirs was my 13th wedding to shoot this year. Having known Cameron and Marley for a few years, I already knew that photographing their wedding would be a true blessing. I totally admit that I cried all day long! It’s just so easy to love these two and that was clearly obvious from the amount of friends and family that surrounded them on their wedding day. With a bridal party of over 30, we had the BEST day laughing and working together! I got to see first hand just how many friendships they’d formed over the years and how adored they were by those in their bridal party. It made me admire Cameron and Marley even more than I already did.

Dogwood Venue was the perfect spot for the Barnhill wedding! With it’s open design, jaw dropping bride and groom suites, and sprawling acreage along The Trace, we had plenty of locations for shooting. The bride started the morning off celebrating with her best girls while the guys enjoyed a little bit of down time before the festivities got started. There were so many precious moments from the book full of letters to the bride from her bridesmaids, to the arrangement made specifically for Marley’s mom that the couple gave to her during the ceremony, but I have to say my favorite was Marley and Cameron’s first look. I seriously don’t think I’ve ever cried that hard during a first look!!! Cameron was so overcome by emotion at seeing his beautiful wife to be, and there wasn’t a single dry eye in the place. From there, the two just relaxed and spent the remainder of the day enjoying each others company and that of their loved ones. Theirs is a wedding day I will always remember and cherish. When you look back through some of my favorites from their event, I think you’ll see why!

Marley and Cameron - I’ll never forget the first time I met you. It was at a tailgate a few years ago when Tracy and I had just started working together. Do you remember? I remember thinking how funny it was that Cameron had a sister named Carley and now had a girlfriend named Marley. Then as I watched you grow as a couple, I always felt like you two would make the most amazing husband and wife team. Then last summer when we went on one of our trips to the Reservoir, I remember telling Tracy that I thought a proposal had to be right around the corner. And it was! Being there on the day you proposed, Cameron, was just the absolute best. I can’t thank you guys enough for letting me be part of your incredible journey. You are going to have the most AMAZING life together! Big hugs and all my love, Shea
