This isn't goodbye...

If you are reading this, this is my last blog entry on this blog.

I feel like I should be like Oprah and give a long dramatic tearful speech about "This isn't goodbye, this is.. until we meet again." But really, this isn't goodbye... this is... join me at our new blog!

The past 5 years have been an incredible growing experience for me as a young woman. What started as a girl with a dream of being a wedding photographer, went on to become Scarlett Lillian Photography. Through my camera I traveled the world, shot some a-mazing weddings, made fabulous friends, been published, met my husband, bought my dream car, got married, and now...... Stephen and I are excited to introduce:

Scarlett & Stephen
Wedding Photographers In Love

In getting married, not only have I had to had to learn the art of compromise and that it's not all about me, but I've had to do the same in joining our businesses. Before meeting Stephen, I worked my butt off to build a business... all by myself... as my only child syndrome would love to flaunt... but now I'm growing and learning the beauty of bringing on a partner, a teammate, someone to help carry the load... We are finding that unique balance as husband and wife, but also as business partners. I admit, it's been hard for me to say goodbye to Scarlett Lillian Photography, and now embrace Scarlett & Stephen. Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited about the next chapter, but I can't help but feel like it's high school graduation all over again. As excited as you are to graduate, it's hard to say goodbye and stand there in that in between spot of the past and the future getting ready to walk into the next chapter of your life with all the unknowns.

For those who followed my journey from the beginning, or joined the ride part way, thank you for being here. Thank you for all your comments you have left over the years. Thank you for all your personal emails that extended beyond a comment. Thank you for supporting me and encouraging me when the times got tough, and celebrating with me during the exciting times of my life. Thank you for your prayers for the vulnerable moments of my life, like when I blogged about losing my dad to cancer. Thank you to those who have been silent and never left a comment, but still followed along. Thank you even to those out there, you know you who are, who through your not so kind words, you taught me to be a fighter and stand strong in the face of opposition. Each of you has helped me on this journey, as I've learned who I am in these 30 years of life. I will be forever grateful for your virtual friendship and love.

For the next chapter of life, I invite you to join my husband and I over on our new blog, www.scarlettlovesstephen.com. We have a lot of great things lined up such as our newlywed adventures, photography tips, wedding industry tid bits, and of course we can't wait to continue showing off our awesome clients who allow us to have the best job in the world!

Courtney & Ben are married! /// St. Simons Island Wedding Photographer

When you meet Courtney and Ben, you feel like you have known them forever. Courtney has a way of greeting every person she runs across as if they are the most important person in her world, with a sincere smile and a big hug. With their natural Southern hospitality, it's no wonder that Courtney and Ben had almost 500 people attend their small town Georgia wedding. Almost every pew was filled in the congregation of First Baptist Church Brunswick, and all their guests enjoyed shrimp and grits and fried fish at a favorite local hang out, Skipper's Fish Camp, for a laid back casual reception. And just warning, as you scroll down, they had a scary wedding crasher... a real alligator lurking below the docks!

One of my favorite parts of their reception was when Courtney, who has grown up competing in dance competitions, and her bridesmaids, all shook their booty to a choreographed dance number to "All the single ladies... all the single ladies... put your hands up...." and performed for Ben before the boquet toss!!

Congrats Courtney and Ben!!

Shara & Vinnie are engaged! /// Miami Wedding Photographer The Villa By Barton G.

It all started with a flirt at a sorority party that Vinnie blew off when Shara tried to catch his attention. But as fate would have it, they continued to bump into each other around campus and then decided to plan their first date. Fast forward to Vinnie's recent birthday, he had planned a huge party that people thought they were coming to celebrate his birthday. Behind the scenes though at the party, he took Shara aside to a room with candles and champagne and asked her to marry him.

With the passion that Shara & Vinnie share, you would think they had just starting dating a week ago. However, these two New Yorkers have been together for 10 years, and will celebrate their wedding in Miami's South Beach next year at The Villa by Barton G., which is famously known as the old Versace Mansion. There in the midst of crowded South Beach, usually, no one is allowed beyond the guarded front gate where tourists take their photos in front of the historic venue, but we were excited to be able to be escorted in for a few shots during their engagement session which you can see in the last killer rockstar shot below!

Here's some of Stephen and I's favorites from the shoot!

Shara & Vinnie totally rocked it here in the very place their ceremony will be! Gotta give credit to Stephen for nailing this shot! :-)
