Andrew + Emi | Lake Lanier Adventure Session | North Georgia destination wedding photographer
This past fall I had a craving to do a water session. 1. because it has been so freaking hot, and 2. because I am always trying to do different things - switch it up a little ya know?? So I put out a model call looking for a couple who would be willing to frolic together in the water. (frolic is another word for water fights in this case. So basically this was their time to get back at their person…and get cute pictures. WIN WIN, EH??)
Emi & Andrew reached out to me and they sounded so precious. Then they showed up at the shoot at Tidwell Park off Lake Lanier. I was like HOLY…YOU ARE MINE TO PHOTOGRAPH?1 Y’all. They were beyond perfection. I literally felt like a creeper because I could NOT get over how beautiful they were together!! But that happens more often than not with my couples…so don’t be surprised….
Not only did they look perfect together, but they NAILED everything and more with what I was imagining up in this session. I still can’t believe how these images came out! I literally had them rolling in the sand, running through and kicking water, throwing each other around, pretending they were dolphins...you name it! They were good sports through the entire thing and I could NOT be more grateful for their hearts for each other and their willingness to let me turn them into mermaids ;)
I’m an adventure photographer based in the North Georgia Mountains and I LOVE getting lost in nature and seeking light everywhere I go. When I am not out frolicking in nature you can find me bing watching The Office, eating Chick-Fil-a, or planning my next travel adventure - probably to Canada because I think I’d be Canadian in another life..eh? I am not a JUST a photographer – someone who takes pictures because I have the ability. NOPE. I am Shelby: a woman who thrives to share light with others through the outlets God has blessed me in. Photography happens to be an amazing role I am able to do that through. No matter what stage of life I am passing through, I will always be a light seeker - moving to grow, wandering this pathway so that I can bring to other what God has given to me.
