Driftwood Beach Inspired Elopement by Magnolia Adams

We've had the pleasure of featuring the beauty that is created at Amanda Watson's workshops before but today's elopement editorial, captured by Magnolia Adams, is our absolute favorite. The dramatic and beautiful surroundings, paired with couples simplistic yet gorgeous aesthetic, is truly fine art perfection!  

From photographer Michelle Leach: "I had the honor of photographing Carly and Will at Driftwood beach during a reunion session with Amanda Watson workshops. Carly and Will have been married just under a year and were excited about the thought of getting dressed up again for more portraits. 

This year my husband and I will have been married 10 years together. It feels like forever and at the same time it feels like it's gone by so quickly. The beauty in 10 years of marriage is that you grow together, you learn more, you laugh hard and you cry hard. You realize how selfish you are and also how strong you are."

My name is Michelle, but my photography business is Magnolia Adam’s Photography. I named my business after my babies, Magnolia and Adam.

The best part about my job is the people I meet. Hands down, I love the stories I get to tell. Whether it’s a senior heading off to the adventure of a lifetime, or a bride breathless about to meet her groom. There’s a story there, and I love to tell it. The best compliment a client can give me is when they say the moment was captured exactly how they remember it.
