First, I would have to say, I started becoming interested in capturing images the first time Troy and I went to Savannah. There is so much historic charm there, and I am so overcome by feelings of warmth and comfort when we visit, that I wanted to bottle it up and bring it home with me!!! The best way I knew how, was through snapping tons of pictures. So, that's what I did. I drug Troy all over Savannah with my simple little point and shoot camera, capturing as much of the sweet southern charm that I could.
The second part of that answer comes from planning our wedding. As I began to plan our wedding, I started falling in love with these amazing images I saw. The unique quality of work put into creating lasting memories through photos. Our wedding photographer, Teresa Earnest of Memories N More is truly fantastic, her work is incredible and she is such a doll. I began following her blog, and many other photography blogs; I just couldn't get enough of these breathtaking images. I was hooked, and have been ever since!!!!
Savannah over the years...it's fun to see the transition....
Birthday Weekend - 2007
This was our very first trip to Savannah. I had been begging Troy to take me for a couple years, and we finally went. We fell in love with the city instantly!!!
Thanksgiving - 2008
Gotta love the date stamp on all of the images!!! I didn't know how to turn it off on the camera!!! :)
Christmas - 2009
You can tell this is when I started getting a little more in to the actual composition of the pictures. We stayed at the Hyatt on River Street and I was inspired by the B&W pictures in the lobby there. We wanted to "recreate" them for our home. So, I once again, took Troy on a hunt through the town for all of the places!!!! The top images have been recently re-edited, trust me, in 2009 they sure didn't look like this!!! ;)
Wedding Planning - 2010
Our trips to Savannah in 2010 were mostly for wedding planning and not just relaxation, so there aren't many pictures to choose from where I was shooting for fun!!!
Spring Break, Wedding & Honeymoon - 2011
These are images from the last 2 trips we took to Savannah. I think they are incredibly different from the pictures I took on our first couple trips. I can't wait to go again so I can capture even more of the historic charm!!!
If anyone sees this, I hope you enjoyed the transition as much as I did!!! Have a good evening!!!
