This rustic chic wedding photo shoot is great inspiration for the bride-to-be! This rousing photo session includes Ashley and Jordan, a stunning couple, at the Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club in Douglasville, GA. Ideas for the photo shoot came from photographer Sarah Todd, owner of Simply Sarah Photography. Sarah tells us, “The ideas for this shoot came from my love of rustic-chic weddings. I love the contrast of a gorgeous gown out in the woods against the natural elements. I chose Foxhall as our venue because of it’s beautiful gentle rolling landscape and the pretty barn that created the perfect backdrop for our session. All in all I think the images captured really showcase exactly what it is that our Southern Brides can’t get enough of!” What do you think?
