Janis & Jimmy {Saint Simons Island wedding photographer}

As a photographer, when you meet a couple who share an extra special connection, you know it right away.  I met Janis a few years ago and loved her immediately, but Jimmy had been living in Oklahoma until earlier in the year.  Once he had finally been able to move to the area, they scheduled an engagement session with me.  And I tell you...when they arrived and had barely stepped out of their car, I could already tell that this couple was a match made in heaven. They are fantastic people in their own regard, but together?  It's the stuff dreams are made of.

Their wedding was held on a beautiful spring day on Saint Simons Island.  While they were preparing for the ceremony, Janis and Jimmy were so relaxed and at ease.  But when we arrived at the beautiful Lovely Lane Chapel, you could feel their excitement and anticipation building for the moment they've dreamed about for so long.  Jimmy was handsome as ever, and wearing a tux with tails!  Janis looked stunning.  I love a bride who wears her veil over her face until the moment of the big kiss! 

The ceremony was beautiful and simple, but it was the love and energy of all that were present that made it extra-special.  When they finally were announced as husband and wife, Jimmy lifted Janis' veil to see clearly his new bride.  And that kiss?  I got goosebumps!

After the ceremony, I wisked the newlyweds off for a few quiet moments, and then it was time to ride to the reception in style!  From the time they stepped out of the vintage limo, the celebration was in full swing.  Janis & Jimmy shared a very touching first dance that rolled right into a dance party without missing a beat!  These two have got some moves!  Everyone was quick to join them on the floor, and they barely wanted to take a break for dinner!

From start to finish, it was a very special day and a fantastic beginning to this new chapter of Janis & Jimmy's life together.  It was my honor to play a very special role in their wedding day, and capture the moments they will cherish for a lifetime.  Janis & Jimmy, I wish you a life filled with happiness, love and many blessings!  Two incredible people deserve only the very, very best.

Ohmygosh!  I'm a bride!
