I am Megan. A southerner to the core and red lipstick aficionado. I am lucky enough to be married to my college sweetheart and best friend. Every weekend we have the great privilege of witnessing and celebrating together as our couples commit their lives to each other, we are reminded of that late November afternoon we decided on forever. I deeply love people and Jesus, because he first loved me. Grace has been a word that has guided my steps my entire life because his is sufficient. Gods Grace is evident in the gift Allen and I have been given and that is our fiery red head named Ava Grace. She breathed life into our business the moment she first took her own. Her presence on this earth opened us up- our heart loves more profoundly and our minds dream bigger than ever before. The combination of medium format film and natural light creates a whimsy romance to our imagery. We focus on exquisite details and documenting distinct moments as they happen while guiding our couples into relaxed authentic poses. We have never met a stranger, hug often and would be so humbled to hear from you.
Allen is Southern Grace Business Manager, Accountant & Second Shooter. In addition he is self proclaimed worlds best toddler wrestler, however Ava Grace would disagree (She would tell you she wins everything of course) We are College Sweethearts turned husband/ wife business partners. Asking why Allen was integrated into the Southern Grace Photography team , I would tell you it was because we both wanted to share together capturing legacy based marriages.. Allen might add in as well however Peyton Manning retiring left a hole in his heart ( Go Broncos & War Eagle) Allen has a distinct eye for journalistic and scenic shots throughout the wedding day adding a unique and authentic perspective.
Often I am asked where Ava Grace received her gorgeous fire red hair and I would quickly reply it is simply because God in his omniscience knew to match her personality. She re-invents the word Diva, but has the sweetest soul you have ever encountered. She reminds us to tackle life and our business the same- with respect and graciousness while holding onto a fiery passion. Ava Grace is the official image culling assistant in the Southern Grace Photography team. She sits on my lap as I cull through thousands of images and gives me great advice on images to keep and discard (Full disclosure her keep pile is typically full of anything and all related to cake, treats, flowers & animals so if by chance you are planning a dessert themed wedding surrounded by puppies and flowers she is your girl).
