Hightower Falls | Cedartown, GA | October 4, 2015

We got to Hightower Falls and it was an icky, rainy day. I hoped the rain would go away, because I have been wanting to shoot at this venue for a very long time and hated that the day was going to keep us inside with the rain. I prayed that it would let up so that we could take pictures outside! The Lord provided and we had just an hour in the middle of the day when it wasn’t raining and guess when that happened to be? During their First Look! I couldn’t have been happier that it cleared up long enough for us to take their pictures outside for a while.

Blake and Derrick were super awesome all day and totally go with the flow. Blake went with us for pictures wherever we suggested, including sitting down beside the rocks. I actually went and purchased a shower curtain for her to stand on or use however during the day. I am so happy she was game for anything, because we got some awesome pictures! We had so much fun and she wasn’t going to let a little rain ruin her wedding day!

I just love everything about Blake and Derrick’s story! They met playing softball together and have continued to over the years. So much of their relationship revolves around softball, so I made sure to take a picture of their rings with a softball. One of her bridesmaids gave a toast and pretty much the entire story and all of the jokes had to do their their softball history together. It was so fun and unique to their story.

I am so blessed to have been a part of this special day for Blake and Derrick. I am so happy that she and I met at one of the bridal shows in January! I knew she was going to be a perfect MMP Bride! Thanks Blake and Derrick for trusting Ben and me to take your pictures. We had so much fun!
