Tim and Paula
The Beachview Club
Jekyll Island, Georgia
June 22, 2007
The wedding we photographed over the weekend was a special one for us. Paula and Tim are close friends of my parents, and my mother was the matron of honor! They got married in beautiful Jekyll Island, Georgia, in an outdoor ceremony right along the beach. Mike and I were thrilled that they asked us to be their photographers, because it meant a lot to us to be able to do that for them. We decided to take a week-long vacation to relax in Savannah and Jekyll Island before their wedding day. We stayed with my parents in a rented beach house, and spent the week with Paula and Tim and their friends and family.
The wedding was gorgeous. We loved the outdoor venue, the leaning trees, the reflections in the water, and the beautiful evening light. Paula and Tim, thank you for including us in your wonderful celebrations all week, and thanks for introducing us to Jekyll Island. We hope you love the photos!

After the family portraits, Mike and I took a walk on the beach with Tim and Paula.
I asked them if they’d be willing to walk in the water. They said no. I said, “No problem, but I just had to ask.” Tim wondered, “Why? Would it make for a good picture?” I assured them the pictures would be beautiful. They next thing I knew, Tim was taking off his shoes. I love photographing couples who trust us so much!

The reception took place in this open-air tent, right next to the beach.
This lucky girl got to lead the conga line.
I love this picture of my parents in the conga line!
Of course I had to take a self-portrait with my mom and dad! I had so much fun dancing with them that night.
OK, while I’m at it, here’s another one of my parents. 🙂
