The Cottage Vineyards Engagement Session

The Cottage Vineyard Engagement Session

The Cottage Vineyard Photographer

The Cottage Vineyard Photographer

Oh my gosh you guys, just LOOK at these two! Meet Teddy and Jess. First of all, I’m beside myself at all my brides named Jessica. Also, I think if your name is Jessica it means you’re pretty much the coolest person in the world. (Seriously- NOT even joking!)

Teddy is a pilot for the Air Force and Jess is not only a baker, but she loves traveling, which basically means they’re living their dream life. Pretty much every weekend they’re off together, touring somewhere, learning something. I don’t know what they’re going to do if they decide to have kids, but all I can think about is (homeschool DREAMS!!).

The Ava House Engagement Photographer

We were originally going to start their engagement session at Jaemor Farms, but holy cow. They were PACKED! It literally took me 15 minutes to find a parking spot, so we decided to head over to their Bed and Breakfast. I played ‘fly on the wall’ while these two enjoyed wine and a game of trivia. (They’re so much smarter than I am!)

After trivia, I followed them outside while they laugh and played. They have SO much Joy, and their laughs are infectious.

North Georgia Mountains Photographer

Although Jess is from Florida, they’re thinking about having their wedding in the North Georgia Mountains, and right now they’re look at The Cottage Vineyard. SO after some time at the Ava House, we headed to the venue to sneak a peek!

(spoiler alert: it’s GORGEOUS)

I love the rolling fields behind them. My goodness, the mountains are devine perfection.

Thank you so much to The Ava House and The Cottage Winery for hosting us, and allowing me to photograph Jess and Teddy on your gorgeous grounds! And to Jess and Teddy- from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for trusting me with your engagement photos. I’m so happy my friends over at Pixel This Photography recommended me to you. I adore your personalities, and really hope to see you two again in the spring. 🙂
