Lake Lanier Islands, GA Wedding Photographer | Claire + John Engagement Session

This past weekend I traveled back to Buford, GA to capture my first engagement session of 2016 and I honestly couldnt have asked for a better couple to kick of the season with! Claire + John are just some of the sweetest people around and my husband, Jeramie, actually use to work with John when Jeramie was with the police department, so it was nice to catch up and to officially meet his wonderful leading lady, Claire!

We spent the first half of our session together at their reception venue site, Lynnhaven on Lanier, which if anybody is looking to get married near Lake Lanier Islands but wanting a more rustic look to their day, this is the place! Lynnhaven has a beautiful barn located on private property that is surrounded by rolling hills, huge southern columns, and a nice little pond to boot!

Originally we had planned to head to downtown Buford after we were done strolling around Lynnhaven for a bit, but when the owner suggested that we check out an abandoned barn on the lake just a mile or so down the road, we decided to nix our downtown plan and boy am I glad that we did! This spot on the lake was as private as can be and we really got to take our time being creative with the water front views and vintage barn. 

ps. can we just talk about Claire's outfit that she wore near the lake for a second!?? I have a thing for long, flowly skirts lately and her's was to die for!! dream outfit right here ladies :)

So to say that I had a great time with these two love birds is an understatement and I am so stoked to also be kicking off wedding season with them in just a couple of weeks!!
