Mini, micro, petite, intimate. Small weddings go by many names but they’re not a new creation. The great unpleasantness of 2020 has caused lots of couples to change their wedding plans and cut their guest lists. So small/intimate weddings and elopements have taken the spotlight.

Planning a wedding is hard! Especially through the uncertainty of a pandemic. That’s where we come in. The Road Ahead Wedding Professionals is a group of Savannah’s top wedding vendors. Over the years we’ve helped plan and photograph gorgeous intimate weddings in Savannah and surrounding areas. Now we’re combining forces to help you plan a magical Intimate Savannah Wedding that focuses on what’s most important to you.

I’ve been a professional photographer in Savannah since 2000, when I graduated with my MFA in photography from SCAD. I immediately began working as a photojournalist for a daily newspaper, documenting some of the biggest stories in our corner of the world.

In 2014 I launched out on my own to start Photos by Rich Burkhart. Since then I’ve documented nearly 300 wedding ceremonies. I absolutely love weddings! They combine all of my favorite storytelling elements that I enjoyed as a photojournalist, but I know your day isn’t about me. It’s about you and your love. My job is to help you focus on what’s important while I authentically capture the joy of your day.

Rich's Work

Vanessa always knew she wanted to be a part of weddings when she was growing up. She attended college for Hospitality/ Hotel & Restaurant Management and after working with a wedding planner while in school and planning her own wedding she then ventured out and opened her own business 9 years ago.

In the years of owning her own business, she has been able to pursue her passion by working with brides to help make sure their wedding day is one that is fun and stress-free. There are many working parts to a wedding day and she is there to guide you and your fiancé every step of the way, from helping coordinate with your vendors, to setting up your ceremony and reception, to making sure all the important pieces of your day flow together smoothly.
