Blog: Andrew & Megan | Savannah Wedding

Jerina Mac Photography Wedding

Savannah Wedding Photographer

I love blogging on the weddings I shoot because it’s writing about love and family.  Every wedding has a couple getting married.  Every wedding has guests and family attending.  Every wedding has a ceremony and reception.  You’d think that after shooting well over 150 weddings, I could shoot in my sleep and not get all that excited about the wedding day.  Not so!  It’s quite the opposite.  I compare it to when I use to sing in front of hundreds and sometimes thousands of people at a time.  I may have performed 20 times in a given year, practiced everyday, had dress rehearsals, got new outfits to wear but when it was time for the curtain to open and a new audience was in front of me, there was always a rush of adrenalin.  No audience was ever the same.  No song was ever sung the exact same way (everybody that knows me knows I like to adlib and sing with my own flare).  That’s how I shoot.  Each couple is their own, every guest list has someone that “hams” it up for the photographer. There is never a dull moment.

On January 28, I had the privilege of shooting Andrew and Megan’s wedding downtown Savannah, Georgia at the Embassy Suites.  The wedding didn’t start until after dark so I new I had to bring out the “creative wand” and make these indoor shots look just as beautiful as outdoors.  I also was aware that Megan’s grandmother had passed away the week before and I needed to be sensitive to the family’s needs.  After the ceremony,  we drove a few blocks down to the Knights of Columbus where the reception took place.  I loved the historical structure of the building and also loved that they had a “live” band.  The Vista’s was a band  out of Charleston, South Carolina and could play just about anything you requested (I wanted so bad to grab that mike and sing a Whitney Houston song but it helped that I had my camera glued to my hands.)

Their Story

Andrew and Megan met on November 30, 2012 at Murphy’s Law Pub.  A very cliché moment happened when Andrew saw Megan walked up to her and told her he had to meet her.  Fast forward 3 years;  Andrew and Megan found themselves standing in Telfair Square on January 27, 2016.  Andrew was on one knee and a ring in his hand.

Blog: Kyle and Nancy “Our Story”

Kyle and Nancy Carolyn met working as camp counselors for Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  However, their love story didn’t truly start until they connected again at a UGA football game a year later.  Kyle and “NC”” were in a long distance relationship for 2 years, traveling each weekend to see one another at their respective locations.  From Mercer University in Macon, Ga. to Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina until Kyle got a job in Savannah which is now their home.

On their 2 year anniversary, Kyle took Nancy back to where they first met as counselors at Epworth By the Sea in St. Simons Island where he proposed to her in Lovely Lane Chapel.  It was all a complete surprise and Kyle even had an engagement dinner surprise with Kyle’s and Nancy’s family and closest friends in downtown Savannah after the proposal.

Now that is a sweet story.  Enjoy their love story through my lens.
