Modern Tropical JW Marriott Wedding | Marco Island Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

This is definitely one I'm excited to share with you. This was one of those weddings where you can physically feel the love surrounding everyone in attendance. Marco Island is home to some of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. The skies look like cotton candy as the sun goes down. Christina and John had all of their events at the JW Marriott, but they wanted to bring the outside in. Florida is so hot this time of year, and while they wanted their guests to be comfortable and in air conditioning, they didn't want it to feel like a ballroom. That's where hiring an incredible stylist and florist comes into play. Tom Trovato and Courtney worked together to create a tropical and lush landscape inside of a hotel ballroom. It was pure magic. It was exactly what the couple had been envisioning and beyond. Beyond that, my mid-century modern heart was so happy with the decor of the actual resort.

The Olde Pink House Savannah Wedding | Savannah Georgia Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

The Olde Pink House Savannah Wedding | Savannah Georgia Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

This wedding was what I would call intimate perfection. Andrea and Scott are two of the warmest people you’ll come across. It was so important to them to keep the wedding party small, guest count low, and celebration the center focus. The Olde Pink House in Savannah was the perfect location for their reception, following a beautiful ceremony in Washington Square. If you’ve ever been to Savannah, you know they are known for their historical squares and this is where many intimate weddings take place. They chose Washington Square because it was within walking distance to The Olde Pink House, letting their guests enjoy the views of Savannah along the way. It also allowed us to get some stunning photographs of the two of them while walking.

The Truth Behind Breastfeeding Sessions | West Palm Beach Breastfeeding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

The Truth Behind Breastfeeding Sessions | West Palm Beach Breastfeeding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

It’s really interesting to me that I’m someone who wasn’t breastfed and haven’t had children of my own, yet I’ve been pulled toward breastfeeding photography. I remember when I received my first inquiry for a breastfeeding session. I hadn’t ever considered that this was something that women wanted captured. I knew, from watching my closest friends breastfeed, that it was something really special. It was a way that they bonded with their children. In talking to one of my friends the other day he said, “When our baby stops breastfeeding I think it’s going to be much harder on my wife than our child.”

I hear this from a lot of women.

Thomasville Georgia Engagement Session | Thomasville Georgia Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

Thomasville Georgia Engagement Session | Thomasville Georgia Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

These two opted to do their engagement session in the bride’s childhood home, in Thomasville Georgia. It was a classic Georgia home with so much charm. They knew they wanted to incorporate their love of their dogs, as well as her love of fashion. I absolutely adored the vintage blue skirt she chose to wear at the end of their session. The camellias were in full bloom (my favorite time of year in North Florida/Southern Georgia). We got to be playful and start inside, but I love that we ended around sunset.
