Lake Martin Wedding – David & Traci

David and Traci live in Georgia, but Lake Martin in Alexander City, AL holds a special place for them, especially her family, so it was a natural location for their November wedding. They knew each other as small children, and reconnected as adults living in Atlanta! They even have photos of them together from years ago. I. love. it. I also love grooms that aren’t afraid to show how much they love their new bride, and David was definitely one of those! We took their engagement photos celebrating their favorite things in Atlanta, seen here.

The beautiful interior and the advantage of the stairs made me choose to do this moment indoors this time. bride and groom first lookDavid “photo bombed” probably 50 of his own photos throughout the day.. I’m sure Traci will enjoy flipping through the photos and seeing how many times he was actually posing for candid photos!
