Shannon and Matt | Alpharetta Wedding Photographer


Crooked Creek Club | Alpharetta, GA | September 16, 2016

Shannon and Matt were the first of our double header this past weekend. Between the split Ben and I did last weekend and the double header we had this weekend, we shot 4 weddings in two weeks! Talk about busy and talk about lots of editing! But can I tell y’all how much fun I had editing Shannon and Matt’s blog pictures?? I’m so excited to be sharing these pictures with you!

Shannon and Matt found me from Matt’s daughter, Olivia, who was friends with one of my past brides. Olivia saw Carly’s wedding and told Shannon she HAD to book me. Once I talked to Shannon, we immediately clicked! I only just met Shannon and Matt THREE weeks ago and they booked me for their wedding just about six weeks ago; but can I tell you how much I feel like I have known them for years? Shannon and I are kindred spirits. I see her spunky personality and how outgoing she is and she reminds me a lot of myself… and I can’t forget to mention her love of dancing! I’m always dancing at some point during the wedding receptions, and Shannon almost didn’t stop all night long!

Shannon and Matt had the cutest First Look! They had such a sweet moment between the two of them, but also had their children standing to the side to get to watch their moment together. What I also love is their wedding party consisted of their children and nieces and nephews. How sweet is that?? I LOVED getting to hang out with the girls during the day. Like Shannon, by the end of the evening, I felt like I knew all of them so well and were best friends for years!

Crooked Creek was seriously one of the greatest venues! They gave us two golf carts to drive around the course, which proved to be so beautiful! We had some awesome spots throughout the course to stop. My favorite by was a bridge by the creek; but what is amazing is that when we stopped to take pictures, Shannon came up with the idea to SIT on the bridge! My brides rock! So often, they will do whatever it takes for an amazing picture. These pictures of them sitting on the bridge were my favorite of the day!

Shannon and Matt, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your day. We had such a wonderful time getting to know you and your kiddos this weekend! I hope you’re having a great week away!

And then…shannon-and-matt-168 …they cut it loose! Matt loses his suit jacket and Shannon grabs and boa and they get down! Seriously the most epic first dance ever! Even knowing Matt for a short time, I can tell he REALLY loves Shannon to have gotten out there and danced like this… or her power of persuasion if pretty powerful. 🙂shannon-and-matt-80 shannon-and-matt-81 2016-09-19_0039 shannon-and-matt-82 shannon-and-matt-83 shannon-and-matt-84 2016-09-19_0038shannon-and-matt-169 2016-09-19_0014 shannon-and-matt-100 2016-09-19_0021 shannon-and-matt-170 shannon-and-matt-171 shannon-and-matt-101 shannon-and-matt-102 shannon-and-matt-173 shannon-and-matt-103 2016-09-19_0015 shannon-and-matt-174 2016-09-19_0022 Jake did some epic Dirty Dancing lifts at the end of the night when they played “Time of My Life.”shannon-and-matt-177 You know Shannon loves her dogs when they get to leave with the sparkler exit at the end of the night and leave in the car with them!shannon-and-matt-105 shannon-and-matt-106

  1. As mother of the bride, I am loving reliving the wedding day with these magnificent photos. Shannon and Matt spent hours preparing for this magical evening. My thanks to our guests (friends and family who made the extra effort to attend, it was a night filled with love and joy.. Aris was the perfect flower girl, Clayton in his first tux, Jake so grown up with his girlfriend Bree, Taylor our fashion model, Shannons God child Madison shared the limelight as her 18th birthday, and Mary Ellen and Olivia. We are truly a blessed family.
