Kayak Kafe {Savannah GA}

Last month I had the pleasure of spending the weekend in Savannah, GA for the first time. Being from Charleston, there are two things I am obsessed with: historic surroundings & trying new food joints. Savannah has both so it was literally a win win for me. While in Savannah I had the pleasure of dining at the Kayak Kafe. With 2 Savannah locations, one central downtown, and the other in the midtown, there is no reason for you to miss this place! The midtown location is decorated in a modern style with a casual vibe. 

Kayak is also locally owned and I was fortunate enough to meet with the owner, Monique. She was kind enough to tell us a bit about their cafe and offer some amazing lunch options! With a wide range from fresh salads, to tacos, to sandwiches, there is surely something for everyone's taste buds! 
Kayak's Commitment to their customers:
"Kayak is proud to serve Springer Mountain Farms Antibiotic & Hormone-Free Chicken, locally caught Georgia Wild Shrimp, MSC-certified Wild Pacific Cod and Sustainable Line-caught MSC Tuna. We offer Uncured, All-Natural Deli meats and Bacon containing no preservatives or nitrates, and our Corn Tortillas are 100% Non- GMO and Gluten Free. We buy Cage-free Eggs & We use Local & Organic Ingredients whenever we can. "

Here are some of our personal favorites from our trip to Kayak Kafe:

Organic Tiger Tofu Tacos : Sweet & Spicy Garlic Ginger Marinade.

Spinach & Wild Ga. Shrimp : Sautéed Wild Georgia Shrimp, Artichoke Hearts, Grape Tomatoes, Pepperoncinis & Crumbled Feta on Baby Spinach

Lime Chicken Enchiladas : Springer Farms Chicken, Caramelized Onions, Black Beans,Topped with Avocado Salsa Crema and Melted Monterrey Jack Cheese, served with Organic Greens Tossed in Cilantro-lime Vinaigrette 

Roasted Turkey Cubano : Roasted All-Natural Turkey & Uncured Smokehouse Ham, Melted Swiss, Chipotle Mayo, Dill Pickles & Organic Greens.

And afterward, Monique brought us a sweet surprise! 

Our chef was pretty amazing. I mean, you kinda have to be to create such beautiful & amazing food!

2 Best Friends + 2 High Schools = GRADUATION

This time 14 YEARS ago, yours truly was preparing for life after graduation. It seems so unreal. I can remember getting our outfits together for graduation pictures and deciding what time we were going to meet because of course we had to go together! We would meet that day at our high school, stand posed for outdoor "casual" photos first, then head to the library for our "formal" shots. I am pretty sure that is the same routine now a days. BUT not for these lovely ladies! Last weekend, I met these two beautiful young ladies, best friends graduating from 2 different high schools. We met at Mepkin Abbey in Monks Corner SC. What an amazing setting as you can see! I had no problem getting laughs from these two and their true personalities came pouring out in each image! They just flowed together so well, I could see why they were best friends! I had so much fun with these young ladies and a HUGE Congrats to them on their graduation!

Aren't they beauties?! What year…

Tavolo: A Taste of Italian in Charlotte!

Tavolo: A family style Italian restaurant in the uptown area of Charlotte, NC. Located at 300 North College Street, Tavolo offers fine Italian dining, wood fired pizzas, wine & cocktails, and more! Enjoy a seat at the full service bar, upstairs, or a traditional table in the downstairs dining area!

I recently had the pleasure of tasting this amazing restaurant for myself while working  in Charlotte with Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl
We started our trip to Tavolo with a few choice martini cocktails:  • the Fragola: vodka, simple syrup, sour mix, fresh strawberries & basil • the Bacio Del Limone: Prosecco, house made Limoncello, fresh raspberries 

As we enjoyed these delicious house martinis, we decided to add a few appetizers into the mix. 
• Carpaccio De Manzo: thinly sliced beef tenderloin topped with sea salt,  cracked black pepper, olive oil, arugula & asiago! 

• Calamari Alla Diavolo: fried squid with roasted & cherry peppers,  served with marinara. 

After devouring…

Congratulations to this beautiful young lady on her Class of 2017 High School Graduation! I had the pleasure of capturing her senior portraits here in Charleston earlier this year. She, along with her family, came all the way from Tennessee to meet me downtown and capture these special memories! It is always a pleasure to meet my new families and get to know them as we spend hours together making magic. 
Amber, you are a beautiful lady and I wish all the best for you at University of Tennessee!  See you again in CHS soon!
