My name is Anna and Georgia will forever be my home. For now, I find myself living across the Savannah River in North Augusta, South Carolina in a cute little cottage I nicknamed Gingerbread (have I lost you yet?). I split my time between being at home and being on the road traveling for work + spontaneous road trips. I've been known to drive 3 hours just to eat a good restaurant and check out a funky boutique or eclectic bookstore. On the flip side, I equally love staying at home working on my latest project (currently: the kitchen!) and cooking all day. I'm pretty thankful to have the opportunity to go where my heart sends me each day, while still keeping my roots at home.
Wedding photography stole my heart back in high school, and I like to think it's just another extension of the other avenues of art I love. I've always leaned toward the visual arts; particularly the 3 "P's": painting, pottery, and photography. Practice in color theory, composition, technical mumbo-jumbo, but then the freedom to break those rules when fit has always led my work stylistically. I learned photography on a Nikon film camera (and now I shoot Canon DSLR; how times change!), and the color, texture, and rawness of film is something inexplicably beautiful. Maybe never fully replicated digitally, but that timeless quality is always at the forefront of my mind when shooting and editing.
When I started college, though, I took the uncomfortable leap into the communication and business world with the intention of starting my own business one day, but knowing I needed to grow in the practical and logistical side of it all. I continued to study studio art as my minor, but learning both sides of the coin prepared me to steward this little business here. I've been incredibly fortunate to have the most loving, kind, and patient clients who allow me to practice my dream each day. My heart beats for those sweet wedding days, and I don't think I'll ever be able to fully express my gratitude to those who have allowed me to share a piece in theirs.
Thanks for stepping into this journey with me. If you'd like to chat, let's go grab some coffee (or cake...or lunch!)
