Katharine and Josh

Katharine and Josh were wed on Tuesday December 30, 2008 at the beautiful Peachtree Christian Church in downtown Atlanta. It was one of the most breath taking churches I have seen. The brides gown was simple yet elegant with a cathedral veil. The reception was held at the Imperial Ballroom at the Biltmore. It was gorgeous.

The bridal party was a lot of fun and they really got into some of the less traditional shots I like to do!

Katharine and Josh were the type of couple that glows when they are together. It was very easy to see how in love they are with one another. Happy New Year Katharine and Josh! We had a great time with everyone!

Brittany and Nick

My nephew Nick married his childhood sweetheart on Saturday December 27, 2009. It was a lovely private ceremony for just close friends and family. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph their wedding and I believe we achieved some really beautiful shots. Brittany was gorgeous, of course and I have never seen Nick so handsome.

They were wed in a historic home in Athens, Georgia.

This is Nick and myself!
I love you so much and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you are over seas.

Rebekah and Gregg

Rebekah and Gregg were wed on Saturday December 20, 2008 at the Church of Joy in Williamson, GA. The weather was unusually warm for this time of year which really aided us in getting some outside photographs. The church was beautifully decorated in everything Christmas. There was a tree with a variety of ornaments and lights, garland, wreaths and lots of tiny lights.

The Bride prepared at the Banquet Hall of Alvaton, near Gay, GA. The bridal suite is truly exceptional here. The reception was also held at the Banquet Hall.

The bridesmaids were a lot of fun. Here is a shot of them all wearing their favorite shoes. They didn't wear these for the wedding, just for this shot :)

One of my favorites from the day.

I hope both of you are having a wonderful honeymoon and have a wonderful holiday season!

Santa Claus!

Yesterday I was excited to spend the evening with Santa in Barnesville, GA! I have never done Santa photos before so this was exciting to me! I had a great time and it was amazing to see all the bright-eyed and sometimes teary-eyed children! :) Santa was awesome, of course and I was obviously on my best behavior in front of the him.
Thanks for having me, Southern Rivers Energy, it was great fun.

Natalie and Kraig

Natalie and Kraig are going to be married in May of 2009. I had a great time with them today and feel that we achieved a good mixture of classic images along with a burst of fun! We spent the afternoon at Piedmont Park. I love the versatility of this place, it has the coziness of a beautiful park being watched by a bustling city giving it a unique feel.

This was one of my favorite images from our shoot and instantly went up on our main website!

Natalie and Kraig were so fun and loved doing a jumping shot! Ok, so Natalie loved a little bit more than Kraig but he was a great sport!

I hope you enjoy this post Natalie! :)

Lauren and Alex

Lauren and Alex are getting married in June of 2009. We spent today shooting their engagement photographs. The weather was perfect for us and they were such a beautiful couple. They were very easy to shoot and I could see the bond they shared which flowed into the lens.

This was my favorite image from today. I love the faded sepia effect allowing for the reds to pop!

Alex had a fun time doing these shots!
I hope they have a wonderful winter and I look forward to seeing them again on their wedding day!

Lisa and Collin

I met Lisa and Collin today at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta to shoot their engagement photographs. They are getting married in June 2009. They were so cute together. They claimed to be slightly awkward in front of the camera but as we continued our shoot they became very comfortable. They were a lot of fun with some creative ideas of their own! I know their wedding is going to be a blast!

Lisa had the idea for this shot and I think it turned out really awesome!

Vanessa and Cliff

Vanessa and Cliff are getting married in March of 2009. Today we spent part of the chilly afternoon shooting their engagment photos. We went to Winn Park in downtown Atlanta. This location was the very place that Cliff proposed. It is a special place to them. They were so cute and affectionate during the shoot. I had a great time getting some great shots with both of them today.

The Hinds Family

Yesterday I spent late afternoon with the Hinds Family at their home. We began our portrait session with some formal shots but also allowed for some interaction and personality to show through. These are the shots I love. I find a photograph truly intriguing we you can see the emotion on the faces of those on the paper.

We ended our shoot on a much more relaxed note. We headed down to the waterfront in their community, one of the families favorite places.

The girls were so beautiful, this is one of my favorite shots of the day!

Lisa and Stephen

Lisa and Stephen are getting married in June 2009 in Fayetteville, GA. Today we spent the morning shooting their engagement photographs. I always love being able to spend this time with my clients. It allows for them to get a feel for how the photography will go on their wedding day and also allows me to see how open they are in front of the camera. We had a great time today and the weather was perfect! It was easy to get such great shots today with such a cute couple.

Pat and Allen

Pat and Allen renewed their wedding vows on October 25, 2008 at their home surrounded by family and close friends. The couple have been married for 30 years and still have that new found love about them. It was wonderful and encouraging to see. As a wedding photographer I see young couples with stars in their eyes countless times throughout the year but it was nice to see a result of all those starry eyes and new beginnings, a happy long-lasting marriage.

The wedding was filled with tiny intimate details for friends and family to participate in the event. This wishing tree was for guests to write personal notes to the bride and groom.

These beautiful rings were exchanged on Saturday and placed on their right hands.

After 30 years the couple couldn't bare to replace the rings that have meant so much to them.

Pat and Allen's children were also included in the ceremony and were given symbolic gifts to represent unconditional love.

The result of a young couple's commitment....a beautiful growing family.

The reception was so much fun filled with music, friends and wonderful food.

Lori and Daniel

This past Saturday on October 18, 2008 I had the honor of photographing one of my very good friends' wedding. Lori and Daniel were wed by the sea on Jekyll Island. Their ceremony was as unique and quirky as the couple themselves! The love the two of them have for one another was uplifting to see.

The guys were a little resistant to doing a jump shot but the bride insisted and it turned out great!

One of my favorite images from the day!

Lori and Daniel had a fairytale wedding and I hope that they have a happily ever after! I love the both of you and thank you for letting me capture such an important day of your lives.
I posted lots of photos for you Lori! ;)
