Katherine and Howard

Mountain Brook Winter Wedding

Katherine and Howard grew up together in the same town as kids and young adults, but attended different universities. However, after years spent apart, their paths once again crossed as they settled in Atlanta for different job opportunities. Once they reconnected via mutual friends, Howard knew that Katherine was his “One”, and he proposed to her in the North Georgia mountains.

Katherine and Howard’s lovely winter wedding was one to remember. They had beautifully intricate details in the form of a lovely paper suite by Mariée Ami, and their entire reception and cocktail hour space was redesigned with touches of winter accents, and held in the immaculate Mountain Brook Club. Katherine wore a designer fur shawl to keep her warm during our portraits outside in the crisp February air, and Howard sported a classic tuxedo accented by a small pinecone boutonniere. A detail that I found exceptionally touching was the incorporation of small butterflies woven throughout Katherine and Howard’s details that represent the memory of Howard’s deceased father.

Katherine and Howard’s wedding day was unique, and intimate, and their photographs together speak volumes to the warm, kind-hearted people they both are. Wishing you all the best, Katherine and Howard!


“When considering photographers for our wedding, we were drawn to Davy because his photographs looked so full of life and movement. I really wanted to be able to look through our wedding photographs and feel how much love surrounded us that weekend and how much fun we had.

Before the wedding, Davy took the time to fine out what was important to us about the weekend and what we wanted from our photographs. When the wedding weekend arrived, he was a joy to work with and made everyone feel at ease. He captured all the expected moments perfectly, but what makes me smile as I look through our pictures are all the unplanned interactions and special moments he caught on film. Davy exceeded our expectations, and Howard and I will cherish these images.” – Katherine (Bride)

Jess and Logan

Intimate Garden Wedding

I had the privilege of meeting Jess at our V10 shoot for Southern Weddings last spring, 2017. We got along very well and I’m honored to say, it led to photographing her wedding this spring, 2018. Emily, her co-worker from Southern Weddings, was their planner and it was so fun to work with these ladies again.

Jess is the sweetest girl that puts off a radiant joy around her. Seeing her on her wedding day was no exception! Logan is such a great match, as he too is one of the nicest guys I’ve met. Their intimate garden wedding took place at Glen-Ella, a small bed and breakfast in North Georgia. The beautiful grounds and spring weather made everything beyond perfect. Their were many unique items in their wedding that I loved; including, the mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses, Logan’s father being the officiant, Jess wearing her mother-in-laws veil from Brussels (which was worn by four other family members!), the handwritten thank you notes on each guests place setting, cookies and milk, and the overall happiness throughout the day!

It was so wonderful to capture their sweet wedding! Thank you both for having me.

“Choosing Davy to capture our wedding day was an easy choice–a choice that my husband and I would make again and again. Yes, Davy’s photography is exquisite, but it’s so much more than that. Davy didn’t just capture what happened on our wedding day in his photos; he captured what we felt. Since our wedding, I’ve had so many friends and family comment on what a joy Davy was to be around on our wedding day. He’s sincere, genuine, effuses joy and excitement at every moment, and his presence alone made our day feel more joyful.” – Jess (Bride)

Thanks to Southern Weddings for sharing.
