My name is Anna and Georgia will forever be my home. For now, I find myself living near the Savannah River in North Augusta, South Carolina in a cute little cottage with my husband Adam.
We spend a lot of time on the road for both of our fields of work, and "The Cottage" is our sanctuary where we garden (ahem, or Adam does, I can't take too much credit there), cook lots of scratch food, and brew tons of coffee.
I don't mean to overly romanticize it; The Cottage is bitty and during certain times of the year we get a nice partial gas station view. But, boy, do we love this little home! It allows us little pleasures like taking a morning walk to the water, biking downtown for lunch, or venturing to a baseball game down the road. We enjoy living as simply as our busy lives will allow; taking in all that's around us and and savoring moments with those in front of us.
During this season of life, our hearts, dreams, and careers do take us all over the place, though. In 2018 we traveled to over 20 states from coast-to-coast for work, and it's not a huge shocker if we decide to drive 3 hours to eat at a good restaurant (seriously, we are huge foodies).
On the flip side, I equally love staying at home working on my latest project or experimenting with new recipes in my tiny "test kitchen." I'm thankful to have the opportunity to go where the day leads me, 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 towards the visual arts; particularly painting, pottery, and photography. The practices of color theory and composition greatly influence my work, while my interests in history and the natural world teach me something new each day about artistic expression. I studied communications in college to help me gain the knowledge for building a business, and I'm so glad I did! What really lights a fire underneath me, though, is the ability to push myself creatively while serving inspiring people. I don't think there's anything better than that.
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 small part in their story.
Thanks for stepping into this journey with me. If you'd like to chat, let's go grab some coffee (or cake...or lunch!)
