A Getaway in Savannah!

All images copyright Jennifer Collins Photography 2017

I am a sucker for historical cities & towns! Living in Charleston I can't seem to get enough! I recently had the pleasure of spending a few days in Savannah, GA. It was close enough to drive, but far enough away to be.. a mini vacation.. or getaway. Whatever you wanna call it, it was an amazing stay! Savannah, established in 1733 is the oldest city in the state of Georgia. It is full of cobblestone streets, parks, historic buildings & homes, and so much more I could go on for days! 

Due to limited time I wasn't able to explore nearly as much as Id hoped to of this beautiful place. We spent most of our time downtown and a short time down at the Riverwalk. I do plan to visit again soon and capture more of the historic homes and spend more time at the Riverwalk, so stay tuned! 

SO! Here is a quick recap of our brief visit to Savannah!

Exploring Downtown!




Our Hotel: The Andaz Hotel
Take a peak back to my previous post HERE to read all about this hotel and just 
why it was so amazing!


Our Lunch of Choice: The Kayak Kafe!
This place was absolutely to die for. The staff, chef, & owner were all so friendly and accomidating! And the food.. oh my gosh take me back NOW! Read more in detail about our lunch 
HERE on my Kayak Kafe post!






Dinner Time at Tequila's Town
Wholly moley I cant even begin to say enough fabulous things about this place. Some of the most amazing authentic Mexican cuisine I've had to date. Read all about it for yourself HERE on my Tequila's Town post. 





And don't forget to swing by the famous Paris Market while you are in town! Be sure to snag a coffee and some of their delicious macaroons while you browse the shop, or sit on the patio and watch the beauty of the city unfold around you!




That's a wrap for now! Stay tuned to future visits to Savannah!

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…

2016 - Behind The Scenes!

Happy New Years! I am so thankful & blessed for a pretty amazing 2016. I have had the most fantastic clients a photographer could ask for, met some truly awesome people, and had the most amazing business opportunities I would have NEVER imagined would cross my path. So, I'm not making any NY resolutions this year, only goals for an even better 2017!

Some might think my shoots are all fun & games... and they're right! I always have the nicest, most laid back clients (to date) and that makes for a killer shoot. We laugh, we joke, sometimes we dance, sometimes we act silly, and sometimes we even cry (well, the little ones anyway).. But one things for sure- we always create magic. Here are just a few behind the scene looks from 2016. Here's to an amazing 2017!


Gettin' silly with it!
Sometimes it takes a little time to warm up to the situation..
Sometimes we get distracted..
When Daddy does silly things to make you laugh and then... you're DONE!

However many it takes …

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…
