Angela and Marco’s day began on the prestigious campus of Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. Everyone gathered in one of the historic houses on campus. The ladies were stowed away upstairs while the guys relaxed downstairs. When it was time to head to the chapel the ladies loaded up Angela’s princess dress and tiara and rolled it all down. The ceremony was action packed complete with poems, songs, and lots of prayer. As soon as Angela & Marco jumped the broom, we all headed to the reception. We couldn’t have our princess arriving late to the Ball. Breathtaking architecture combined with beautiful floral centerpieces by Chuck Milne helped to create Angela’s “Disney Princess” vision. The reception included lots of dancing and emotions. We snuck them off for a quick twilight portrait and unlike Cinderella, there was no midnight curfew. We left Angela with her Prince Charming to continue dancing their night away. Congratulations Marco & Angela!
Wild weather couldn’t keep us away. We arrived at Heritage Sandy Springs after a crazy night of tornados and flooding. Due to the heavy storms, the entire city of Sandy Springs, Georgia was without power. Though the venue was pitch black, Marissa was a great sport and in good spirits! The wonderful pops of coral, canary, and cerulean certainly brightened up the environment. Chris saw his fiancé in her dress for the first time as she was unveiled through a bright red standalone door at the end of the aisle of their beautiful outdoor ceremony. Neither Chris nor Marissa were able to control their emotions as they officially started their life together. They left the alter with a very theatrical bow and they disappeared through the red door. A dark and music-less reception was a concern for the couple but they knew “the show must go on.” Under powerless chandeliers, in a beautiful pocket of window light, the best man stood up to toast Chris & Marissa. Just then, as if a sign from above, the chandeliers flickered on and full power was restored to the venue. Cheers and excitement erupted and filled the room. It was such a powerful (pun intended) and profound moment. These two are in for a long and wonderful life together. Congratulations Chris and Marissa!
Here in Atlanta, Georgia, rain has been a reoccurring theme for this year’s summer weddings. Luckily for Kyle & Heather, The Foundry at Puritan Mill provided a very chic and airy shelter from the elements. From the wonderful food truck catering provided by Sweet Auburn BBQ to the killer victory curl hairstyles from Pin Up Girl Cosmetics this couple kept their wedding fresh yet hip. We did a red hot Grease inspired engagement shoot with them. Well, that theme carried over to their wedding and gave a modern twist to the classic movie and allowed for a inspiring conclusion to their wedding story. Heather & Kyle made sure there was plenty for their guests to do. With a fun photo booth, a vintage style patchwork guestbook, and bumping music provided by Spectrum Entertainment, no one was bored. After a dog pile bouquet toss, Kyle and Heather said their goodbyes and headed out the door. Bubbles, rain, and a vintage navy truck made for a beautiful exit for these two. Congratulations Kyle & Heather!
We had a wonderful summer wedding season and we are so excited to share them with you! You may remember Kayla from her bridal session this spring. We could hardly wait for this wedding to come around and it ended up being a beautiful weekend and a great road trip experience for us. Kayla and Justin both are so sweet and have a very loving supportive family they shared the day with. They were married at a stunning private home in Seacrest FL with an intimate waterfront ceremony and a rocking reception. We hope these two have a life full of love and memories and we are thrilled to have been part of it. Enjoy!
Check out our latest senior session with Que!! We love photographing seniors in between our weddings and engagements. We wanted to step outside of the norm for traditional senior photos with this one. You know we love color around here, so we wanted to incorporate wild crazy colors throughout the shoot. He is the son of a professional basketball coach and has a promising career in the sport himself. He will be playing in college next year and we can’t wait to see what life has to offer him. It was an absolute pleasure to spend our evening with this guy, he has a heart of gold and a smile that will light up a room! Good luck with your upcoming endeavors Que!!
Meet Brian + Laura!!! We are shooting their wedding in September @ The Farm, in Rome GA and we cannot wait to get to that venue. Something magical seems to happen at that place and it looks like every wedding there has a really great time. These two are very outdoorsy nature lovers so naturally we had to do something involving water. The old ruins were a perfect backdrop for an intimate engagement session and if felt really good to dip our toes in the water at the end! We know your wedding will be beautiful and we can’t wait to spend that day with you both, congrats!!
Happy 4th of July to everyone!! We had to celebrate with something exciting around here today so Freddie & Charisse it is!! We LOVE these two..Charisse was a bridesmaid in Tyler & Rachel’s wedding at the Roswell Mill and booked with us a week after their wedding..That is truly the biggest compliment to any photographer! Freddie & Charisse celebrated their day @ The Georgian Club. They had a big outdoor ceremony planned but mother nature had other plans. Everyone in the bridal party and The Georgian Club staff handled things effortlessly and stress free so the back up plans went off without a hitch! While the ceremony area was a little different than the outdoor gardens, the views were to die for. Once you get up there you can see everything from Stone Mountain, to Buckhead and an amazing view of Downtown. The reception was a blast with our groom spinning a few of his own tunes…and well the getaway car is one of our favorites yet!! Congrats Freddie & Charisse, we are so glad to have met you two!!
Meet Cole & Kristi!! We are thrilled to have this couple for our fall season this year, these two are tying the knot in October. We had a blast shooting their engagements and we know their wedding is going to rock! Cole is in culinary school to be a pastry chef and these two have had their own version of “Cupcake wars” going on for a while. Everyone knows we love cake, so we are certain this is a match made in heaven for us! We had a bonus stop with the King of Pops and surprise run in with our most favorite girls over @ Project Duo!! We LOVEEEEE us some King of Pops and highly suggest you check them out. It’s summer in Atlanta and they are hard to miss! Looking forward to a great few months of wedding plans with Kristi & Cole, stay tuned for their big day!
Grab a cup of coffee and a tissue this is a long one!!! We don’t even know where to start on this one…Mountain resort community, Beautiful couple, amazing families and a rockin’ bluegrass band for the reception. There were so many sweet emotional moments all day, they just wouldn’t stop! Cati looked AMAZING in that dress and birdcage veil (we are suckers for crazy long veils, and not traditional pieces!). Matt and his groomsmen were an absolute pleasure to be around all day and we loved that they found time in their day to fish with a few locals. There was not a dry eye in the church by the end of the ceremony and the reception went late into the night with high energy music of the Bibb City Ramblers. We wish these two a lifetime of memories and moments just like the ones they made on wedding day. We are so fortunate to have been part of this day, Enjoy!
