While I am thinking about it today, I wanted to share with you my sister-in-law’s engagement pictures, which we never got around to blogging (bad sister!!). We shot them at Brady Park which is a park in my husband’s hometown in Massapequa Park, New York. We shot these during the Fall and just loved all of the beautiful leaves in the background. Kim and Chris are SSSSOOOOO sweet together and so in love! We had a great time shooting them and wanted to finally share some of our faves with y’all.

We’re excited to share Nicole & Jeff’s sneak with you! These two wed at the beautiful villas at Harmony Hill in Hanover, Jamaica. When we arrived at Harmony Hill we literally had to just take like 20 minutes to take it all in. The property, the view, EVERYTHING was absolutely breathtaking. It was kind of  surreal actually. LOL! Shooting their wedding was an experience of a lifetime! We’re so glad they chose to share their day with us. Enough talking, check it out!

The backdrop for the ceremony…WOWZERS!

Nicole’s awesome bouquet put together by the Toni of Events Boutique based here in Atlanta!

Since they wed in Jamaica it was only right for them to add a touch of Jamaica to their wedding ceremony. Nicole & Jeff jumped the broom!! We thought it was a cool touch!

We got to explore the property via golf cart after the ceremony for portraits!

More from Nicole & Jeff soon!

Happy Friday guys! Meet Sarah & Tom! Their wedding venue the The Trustees Garden in Savannah is sentimental to us  b/c it is the first venue Project Duo ever shot at 4 years ago this May. We’re so excited to revisit and shoot there again! Sarah & Tom took us to their Alma Mater for their session b/c it was where their relationship began.

We have sneaks from Emily & Josh’s lovely wedding to share!!  We raved about their engagement session & their wedding was just as fun! Check out some of our faves from the day below!

Loved – loved – lovvvveeeed Emily’s bouquet by Melanie of Le Bonne Fleur!

Beautiful Emily!!


We loved their first look. They were so thrilled to see each other. It was such a special moment. It was written all over their faces. :)

All Saints Episcopal doesn’t allow photography inside of the sanctuary but we’re excited to say that we were still able to capture a few moments. Sneaky, sneaky photo ninjas!!!

I bought Courtney a Holga for her birthday a few years ago and she enjoys taking it on vacations with her for some fun/quirky shots.  She had issues with the film and all of the shots overlapped, so we had to crop into them all (UGHHHHHHHHHHH!) but they are still fun and cool.  😉


Courtney wanted to cry when she saw that our faces were overlapped and overexposed and that she had to crop them out, but we still like this shot of me and Allen.  We bought fruit from this station one day.  Sooooooooo good!

We didn’t mean to be twinkies and both wear stripes, LOL! We’re just in sync like that!! :)

Part of the taxi tour.  Overlooking Montego Bay!

The front of our cute little condo.

More of Dr. Cave’s Beach.  The water was crystal clear and teal.  Such a great day!  Snorkeling was fun too… lots of colorful fish!

Courtney also buys an underwater disposable camera every time we go on vacation.  Here are some fun shots of her and Doug on the giant water trampoline.


The End! We miss you Jamaica! :)

Welcome to Montego Bay ya’ll!! We’re so excited to share our personal photos from the trip with you!! We hope you loooooove! It was definitely a trip of a lifetime!

Right outside our back porch was a tree that was visited often by Jamaica’s national bird, the Doctor Bird or Swallow-Tail Hummingbird.  It lives ONLY in Jamaica and is the most outstanding of the 320 species of hummingbirds.  The male bird has a tail that is about 10″ long, so the bird is about 13″ in length total.  Isn’t he super cool?!?!

Courtney LOOOOOOVVVEEESSS cats, so she was really happy then this little kitty made friends with her during the trip.


This picture was taken sitting on our back porch.  Yesssssssss that was the view from our house.  How awesome is that?!?!  Many of the other water pictures were also taken from our yard, looking down the cliff.



View of the back of the building.  We were the condo in the middle, but we were the only renters that week, so we had the entire place to ourselves.  Yeah Mon!

Lizards were everywhere.  We didn’t see any really colorful ones but they were still cute.


Dr. Cave’s Beach – just steps away from our condo.  We didn’t need a car for anything!

The gang – lunch at the beach club restaurant.

Doug enjoying a Jamaican Red Stripe beer.

Pool water…

The water at the beach…can you believe how clear it is?!?!

Full view of Dr. Cave’s beach.

Courtney & Doug snorkeling. I wanted to join but I couldn’t swim out that far with my pregnant lady stamina. Oh well. ..NEXT TIME!

The housekeeper/cook picked fresh flowers from the gardens outside and made this beautiful arrangement for us.

Courtney and Doug worked on this puzzle on-and-off throughout the week.

We both loved this cute parrot and looked for one in the souvenir shops but we never saw one.  :(

We took a 2-hour taxi tour through downtown Montego Bay and up into the mountains where a lot of the locals live – here are some images from that ride…

Yes, I know this picture is not really in focus but get over it!  It is one of Courtney’s faves.  ;)~

Overlooking Montego Bay.

We noticed some beautiful spotlights on the water, shining down from heaven.  😉

Oh beef patty, how I miss you so!

A cruise ship came into town one day and here it is sailing away.   We were like, “Suckerrrrrrrrrrs… y’all have to leave and we get to stay here!”  LOL!!

A beautiful and relaxing sunset, observed from our back porch.

Cool mango silhouette.

Overlooking the “Hip Stip” late at night.

The housekeeper/cook made us a tasty dinner one night.  It ended up being the best meal we had the entire time we were there!  Jerk chicken, fresh steamed vegetables, plantains, a salad with homemade dressing (she even gave us the recipe, yesss!) and fresh-baked banana bread, which we forgot to take a picture of.  Thanks, Brenda!  Yummmmmmmmmmmmmm!



We’re back with more of our faves from Emily & Rob! Hope you love them as much as we do! Enjoy! We’re off to shoot another engagement session!
