Joan and Mirza’s engagement session

Joan and Mirza are exactly the type of couple I love to photograph. Not only are they adorably cute, but they are very silly, too! They came to the shoot with props, and a change of clothes for a funny photo they wanted to capture announcement of them dressed as over-hyped celebrities. For this one, they wanted me to snap a shot of them paparazzi style. We had a great time taking pictures at the Goat Farm and at the Westside Provisions District. I’m really looking forward to their wedding!

This was their favorite of the ridiculous celebrity shots!

Pictures of baby Blake

Early this year, I photographed Elizabeth and Tyler’s wedding. I was so flattered that they asked me to come take photos of their newborn, Blake. It means so much to me that I get to share these important moments in a family’s life. Blake is an adorable baby, and he was very tolerate of someone disturbing his sleep with lots of flashing lights.

What a face!

Amy and Tim’s awesome, beautiful and slightly silly wedding

Amy and Tim are puppeteers, actors and an all-around super-fun duo. They also picked one of my favorite wedding venues, The Solarium in Decatur. Which, happens to be the spot where my hubby and I got hitched four years ago. As soon as I walked in and saw their AMAZING geeky themed centerpieces, I thought to myself, “This is going to be an awesome wedding to shoot!” and it was. I’m having a hard time narrowing down to my favorite hand full of images, so forgive this very long blog post with too many exclamation points!

I love wedding with adorable details.

Vintage dress, broach bouquet and hair piece.

First look!

One of the awesome shots by my talented second shooter, Jonathan Phillips.

Beautiful fall colors.

Best cake toppers ever!

One of my favorite shots of the wedding. This one is Jonathan Phillip’s shot. He’s so good with that long lens!

Photos of baby Hutson

Back in July, Amy and Clint hired me to take some maternity photos of the two of them. I was so excited when they asked me back to take photos of their little cutie, Hutson! And, they had two of my photos hung in her nursery. It made me feel so happy to see that they were enjoying my photos. Hutson is such a little cutie pie. Wow. I hope I get to take more pictures of this beautiful family!

Web site photos for Zeigler Homestead Services

This fall, I helped out my friend Joey with a web site for his new business Zeigler Homestead Services. Joey is helping people start sustainable gardens, set up rain barrels, begin chicken keeping and more. He’s learning about beekeeping, too! To launch his business, he needed a web site and some content for the site. I dusted off my wordpress skills and build a basic site for him and shot some photos in his beautiful backyard farm.

Annie and Raj’s engagement photos

Annie and Raj are getting married in Canada in a few months. Raj emailed me about doing some engagement shots of the two of them and we started brain storming location ideas. I had been driving past SEAT, a sculpture in Freedom Park by Yong Ju Lee and Brian Bush and I kept thinking it would be a great piece to incorporate into a shoot. Raj and Annie were game!

The weather was not super cooperative on the day of our shoot. We decided to take pictures without worrying about our lack of sunlight and see what we could get. Annie and Raj were total troupers, not complaining once about me asking them to walk through wet grass for almost two hours early on a Saturday morning.

 

Amy and Clint’s pregnancy photos

Amy and Clint contacted me about doing some maternity photos for them, and they happen to live in my neighborhood, Kirkwood. We got some really adorable shots of them in their little girl’s room and on their front porch with their furry child, Pfeefer. I can’t wait to photograph little Hutson when she arrives!

Jessica and Robert’s La Maison Rouge wedding

Jessica and Robert pulled a fast one on their friends and family! They invited them to a reception, but surprised them with their wedding ceremony, followed by a raucous party at La Maison Rouge, part of the unique antique store, Paris on Ponce here in Atlanta.

La Maison Rouge is a tricky place to shoot! It’s very dark inside, but with a couple of well placed strobes, my second shooter Jonathan Phillips and I did pretty well. We also had a great time taking pictures of this adorable couple throughout the antique store. It’s a very cool place to get married with all of it’s kitschy French character. No need to worry about details, the venue has those in spades.

Just one of the great shots by Jonathan Phillips!

Their first look.

Bobbin and Ryan’s Oakland Cemetery engagement session

Bobbin and Ryan picked one of my favorite places in all of Atlanta for their engagement session, Oakland Cemetery. This is a couple who loves Atlanta and all of its quirky weirdness. They are tying the knot at The Highland Inn Ballroom in November, and I can’t wait! I’m hoping to get some pics of them in front of the Plaza Theater and maybe in the Majestic Diner. Here are a few of my favorites from their set.

Heather and Noel’s lovely Wahoo Grill wedding

Heather and Noel got hitched at one of my favorite restaurants in all of Atlanta, Wahoo Grill. Not only is the food excellent, but Wahoo has a beautiful sense of style. I was really impressed by the room they have set aside for the bridal party to get dressed. It’s got lovely big windows and a huge mirror, which made for some very nice shots. Thanks to my second shooter, Martin Brown for his sharp shooting on this wedding.
