I'm Savanna, a documentary wedding photographer based in Atlanta, and traveling around the globe to capture love stories on both digital and film. I graduated from the prestigious and competitive visual journalism program at the University of Georgia, and have been documenting weddings full time for nearly five years.
I'm is inspired by the color green, the way my dog looks at me, seeing new places, strong women and strong coffee.
And (of course) a really, really good story.
I take a photojournalistic approach designed to help you remember how your day felt above all else. I command the background, searching for those decisive storytelling moments—and capturing the unplanned emotions in-between. I find the most treasured images are the ones that weren't planned at all: the ones that really tell the whole narrative of the many emotions of a wedding day.
I still provide direction so you feel comfortable, but you aren’t tied down with a shot list or traditions that have nothing to do with your love story. Instead, you get to be you, and only you. So you get all the photos you want, plus the ones you didn’t know you needed.
When you look back at your wedding photos one, five, or fifty years from now: I want you to be transported back to that moment. I want you to feel the warmth of your loved ones’ hugs, hear the sound of the music that accompanied you down the aisle, and taste that first glass of wine as a married couple.
I want you to look back on your wedding photos and be proud of who you are in them.
