I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia but moved out to California in January 2018. Both places have such a special place in my heart. Although this dream of a business started in the South and grew there, I feel like I really embraced my style and my personality when I moved out to California. Do you get it? South & West Photo! I am married to an incredible man named Matthew, he has the best Southern accent and even after 5 and a half years of being his, I am still obsessed with him in every way.
But here's the thing, if I have learned anything in the past year and a half of living opposite coasts of all my people (read: my nieces & nephews and my sister) it is that photos and moments matter. Family matters. Friends matter.
And that is exactly what I am here for.
So here's the reality: you are going to plan your wedding for months. Hours of planning. A million emails exchanged between vendors. And the big day comes, and it is incredible and then you realize it FLEW by. The small and big moments all pass. But those people and those moments? The precious ones that mean the most...The kiss your grandma gave you when she saw you in your dress, your groom holding your hand throughout the reception, the photo of you and your sister. Those moments are the ones you will want to go back on.
Traveling is one of the best parts of my job and I am forever excited to get to explore around with sweet couples! Here are some of the places I have been and where I am headed. If I'm not traveling, I'm adventuring and shooting in California!
