Sand family photos

Sometimes, it is worth the wait! Jennifer Sand and I have been corresponding since mid February to make this shoot happen. We scheduled several times, only to have to postpone because of illness or weather. I joked with Jennifer once that her kids were going to be in college before we did the photos. After 66 emails (yikes!) we met this past weekend for a session in their beautiful backyard. Here are some of my favorites.

Summer ICE event pics

I love working for the Indie Craft Experience! What can be better than an event full of creative and hip people? I also love shooting at Ambient Plus Studios, because of the big windows and lovely natural light. It was hard for me to narrow down just a few of my favorite shots for this blog entry. One or two of these might end up in my portfolio!ice02

Yoo Sun and Ray’s Defoor Centre wedding

Yoo Sun and Ray were wed at the Defoor Centre in Atlanta just two short weeks ago. Since I enjoyed spending a couple of hours with these two for their engagement session, I was thrilled to photograph their special day. The Defoor Centre is lovely inside, but it has some challenges! There are no pretty outdoor areas for pictures. So, Yoo Sun, Ray, Addison, myself and their entire wedding party packed into a few cars and headed to Centennial Olympic Park for photos. It was tricky to keep people (mostly) out of the backgrounds of their photos, but I think it was totally worth it to brave the heat for some lovely outdoor photos. Many thanks to a very patient wedding party!

Portraits for the ladies of Indie Craft Experience

I’m excited to be asked to shoot for Indie Craft Experience. Christy and Shannon asked me to do some photos of them individually, and pics of them as a team. These ladies have been working together to bring locally hand made crafts to Atlantans for almost 10 years. Their photos need to look stylish, playful and professional. We did several shots around the Sweet Auburn Curb Market and I think they turned out great. I’m looking forward to doing some more photography for them this Saturday during their big summer kickoff!

Emily and Jeff’s materinty photos

I visited Emily and Jeff in their gorgeous Grant Park home for their maternity photos. I could make photos in their yard all day! I’m happy they picked me to do their pictures, and I can’t wait to go back and meet their daughter soon for more images.

Alex and Chase’s Mary Gay House wedding

Alex and Chase got hitched at Decatur’s lovely Mary Gay House. What a pretty venue! These two were such an adorable couple, it was hard to make a bad photo of them. We had to work around a few sprinkles of rain here and there, but I’m so pleased with the photos. Here are a few of my favorites.

Michaelle and Ben’s Edisto Beach anniversary pictures

Michaelle and Ben have been friends of mine for quite a while. I was happy to help them celebrate their six year anniversary with a sunrise beach photo shoot. Edisto Island is so lovely, and it’s a special treat for me to do photos on the beach. The hardest part about this shoot was picking just a few of my favorites for this blog entry!

Lauren and Brandon’s engagement session at Piedmont Park

Lauren and Brandon are getting married on a beach in Florida, and I’m jealous of whoever gets to shoot their wedding! They are so photogenic. We walked around Piedmont Park for a couple of hours and got some great photos of their adorable dog, Liam, too. Here are a few of the best shots.

Corey and Brendan’s Unicoi State Park wedding

Corey and Brendan tied the knot at the Beach House at Unicoi State Park. What a pretty spot for this outdoorsy couple. I love that we got so spend so time walking around the lake taking photos before their ceremony! These two could give other couples pointers about how to pose. They are the sweetest and most cuddly couple I’ve ever photographed. Thanks to my friend Martin Brown for second shooting this one with me.

Yoo Sun and Ray’s engagement session

Yoo Sun and Ray are getting hitched this summer at The Defoor Centre here in Atlanta. I was excited to take some engagement pictures of them, because it gave us a chance to get to know each other better, and for them to get comfortable in front of the camera. We shot at The Goat Farm Arts Center, and then finished up on the Jackson Street bridge. We had a lot of fun and got SO many good shots in two hours!
