A Celebration of Life and Love ~ Misty Lakes, North Augusta SC

With today being our wedding anniversary, nothing makes me happier than being able to share a sweet image from Estelle & Kenneth’s party. In honor of Estelle’s 90th birthday and their 60th wedding anniversary, their family put together an amazing celebration for them at Misty Lakes in Aiken, SC.

As my time was winding down, I wanted to take a few moments to capture a couple of images of them together. As I was setting up this image, I really wanted to position them closer together. I had Mrs. Estelle stand so that I could move her chair closer and Mr. Kenneth, from his seat, reached out to her to hold her arm to help steady her. Still looking after her. Still taking care of her. I can only dream and hope that when I’m 90 that my husband will be still reaching out for me. To guide me and protect me.
This is absolutely one of my most favorite images of them. So much can be read in their hands… strength, tenderness and devotion. I could only be as lucky to celebrate 60 years of marriage. So here is to 15 years down & 45 to go!!!
Happy Anniversary to my love, Phillip.
Always,
Cherie

Raven’s Maternity Session ~ Augusta GA

So by now everyone knows about our new granddaughter. I was so overcome with baby fever leading up to our Luna Star’s birth. Our sweet baby girl was stunning as expectant mother to be. This gown in mulberry was my favorite color.

I can’t believe how beautiful this day was. As a photographer, I couldn’t have asked for any better light for the pictures.

Sooooo blue is my favorite favorite color of all time. When I saw this gown I had to have it. I always knew that we would have a little girl coming but I just couldn’t pass up this beautiful gown. It reminds me a little of the dresses from my wedding.

Nashville, TN: Imaging USA

What’s new with At Last Productions???

We, Cherie and Phillip, had such a great time in Nashville, TN at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. I, Cherie, had to go to Imaging and frankly, it is, hands down, one of the largest gatherings of professional photographers for wedding, newborn, maternity, boudoir and senior photography and so much more. Phillip lets me drag him along because he is the most awesomest person ever!!!

Snow topped trees on a hilltop

 

Our drive from Augusta, Georgia to Nashville, Tennessee was definitely one filled with beauty and excitement. It was snowing!!! On the way there and while we were there. We’re not talking about that 1/4″ Georgia snow that shuts down schools and has everyone going out to buy up all the milk and bread within a three state radius.  I can only gauge accumulation based on what I saw stacked on chairs, tables and the grass but my guess is 3-4″ total and it was soooo pretty.

Footprints in the snow

 

I was so excited for the snow and Imaging that I stayed awake the whole drive. I’m usually out like a lumberjack after working 15 hours followed up by a hot shower and a full belly and this is only 10 minutes into the car ride. Just sayin for a friend, who gets stuck driving while I am snoring. Other than the snow, I was excited to be able to go and learn from the top educators and professionals in the photography industry.

At Last Productions ~ A Divine Romance ~ Sacred Heart

Porsha & Isreal’s wedding has got to be without a doubt one of the most beautiful ones we’ve ever been a part of. We did uplighting in a softer blush for the ceremony and then when the sun went down it just became a different level of elegance and sophistication. It was absolutely breathtaking.

A DJ gets hitched…..

How do you kick off a great DJ convention?!? With a wedding of the host and his now lovely bride. At Last Productions is so excited to have been able to witness the ceremony of Robbie & Julia.

Can I just say as a Chevy girl, I was so in love with this amazeballs truck!! If I could have taken it home I would have left right then with it. And yes, I would have had to keep the chilled spiked watermelon all to myself… so delish! Don’t worry there was unspiked too for the kiddos to enjoy.

The cake was gorgeous and delicious tasting too!

At Last Productions

Dano is one of the liveliest DJ’s I have ever met! He is a party all by himself! He was one of the few amazing DJ’s that entertained during Robbie & Julia’s reception. I’m in such awe to be surrounded by such amazing talents.

Julia looked amazing in her layered lace gown walking up the hill to meet Robbie at the steps of the romantic Dickson-Williams Mansion. Their wedding was filled with moments of laughter and fun with tender looks, smiles and glances and declarations of love.

One of my favorite moments was when grandpa tried to cover the eyes of the little one during their first kiss as husband and wife.

Sometimes you think a wedding is just about the couple but it’s really about family. Sometimes that family is small and sometimes it’s large. No matter the size it’s all about YOUR new family coming together as one!!

Congratulations Britton Family!!! XOXO

So very excited about getting to photograph a super sweet vow renewal for Mr. & Mrs. Allen!! I will always now listen for squeaky shoes in churches (one of my most favorite things about your wedding). You have the most precious baby girl she is so incredibly sweet, spunky and sassy – I hope she never changes! It was my privilege and honor to be a part of this day with you.

52 Week Photo Project ~ 1 of 52

g10a5125blog-fb-ready

I am challenging myself to share my photography and stories via pictures here with you on our blog over the next year. I will be posting an image weekly based on a word from a photography project. I encourage you to think about what is important to YOU. For me, it’s simple… my husband, my daughter, our family and our business is everything. Sometimes we forget what are the most important things and our priorities fall all out of whack. I hope to regain focus and connect. Remember in life sometimes you have to put yourself first in order to do for others. Some may say that’s selfish. I say… How can you take care of someone else, when you can’t even take care of yourself?

This week’s word is: CHANGE

I immediately thought of the very personal journey I’m on right now to CHANGE for MY  health. So far since the beginning of the year I’ve lost 7 pounds. That’s not a lot as you can see. But it is a change… a CHANGE in me. My dedication to myself to become the person I know that’s inside of me trapped like R. Kelly. I’m waiting to bust out and I know that in this process the struggles will be at times overwhelming, heartbreaking and beyond challenging. This will be the hardest thing I will ever do. However I know that I will be healthy, happy and restored in the end.

What CHANGE to you hope to make or continue in the New Year?
