I’m so excited to share this Southern Newlywed Christmas shoot featured on Southern Weddings! Oh what a joy it is to see this shoot published on my all-time favorite wedding website!! The last couple months have been filled with a lot of styled shoots and a lot of weddings, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It is one of the best feelings in the world to see a thought; a vision come to life, be captured beautifully, and then to have it shared. I love everything about this shoot, and it was so much fun to bring all of these sweet Christmas traditions to life for a newly married couple. It was especially excited to have Taylor & Andrew as our models, as it really is their first married Christmas – and we used their home, too!
I’m so very thankful for the talented, incredible team who brought this vision to life. It’s the biggest blessing to be surrounded by such passionate, hard-working, wonderful people to work with!

And, of course, thank you to the lovely ladies of Southern Weddings for featuring this sweet shoot!
Our models, the Lovettes, are a real couple getting ready to celebrate their first married Christmas, and we captured the new and old traditions they’re making together in their home. Taylor introduced Andrew to her grandmother’s famous oatmeal chocolate chip raisin cookies, a recipe that has been made in her family each and every Christmas for decades. Wrapping Christmas presents together and sending their first married Christmas cards is a new tradition for this little family, and they can’t wait to send notes of love and joy around the country to their family and friends. And what’s Christmas without decorating your first Christmas tree? The Lovettes adorned their tree with family heirloom glass ornaments and fresh cranberries, topped off with their “first married Christmas” ornament they received as a wedding present! Sharing family traditions with each other, as well as creating new traditions of their own, makes their first married Christmas even more special.
Be sure to make it to the bottom of this post to see the adorable video, too (it actually brought me to tears!).
