Christine + Eugene / The Brickyard Marietta Square Wedding

After shooting hundreds of weddings over the years, there is one thing that’s for sure and it’s the fact that every wedding is different. Every wedding has its pros and cons, joys and challenges just like life itself. Wedding planning is one of the most stressful things that a couple has to go through together, and it’s unique in that this must be done before they are actually married!

Larshanae + Cedric / Ashton Gardens Atlanta Wedding

You know, there are some really smart people out there… the ideas that people have fascinate me! Like Uber… Airbnb… what an amazing business concept, right? Like, I would have never even thought of something like that! Well, Shanae said that she got an Airbnb to get ready with her bridal party, so I was curious as to what this place that she chose was going to look like!

Savannah, GA... the only memory I have of this place was when I was in high school, my mom and her friends wanted to go spontaneously from August, GA to get some fresh seafood.  So, we got there at night, had dinner and drove back!  So, I never got to see anything in daylight.. 

How to Shop for a Wedding Photographer

You're engaged.  AWESOME! Now what?  Wedding planning!  How do you do that, you ask?  Where do you start?  There are books after books and blogs after blogs on how to do this correctly.  We've been there... we know!

Some people have the gift of making you feel like family... To be able to make a total stranger feel like you've known them for years is something that you can't really teach.  It just comes naturally... That is something that Grace + Russell have - I call it magical.  So, how do we know them?

So, is the world big or small?  Because there's a saying, "It's a big world out there" and then people say, "It's a small world..." So, which is it?  ;)  Well, for this story, it's a small world.  We got referred to Gabby + Phanna from one of other brides and then when they came to the shoot, they told us another crazy story!

CO Designs // Our Own Space

If you're a parent reading this blog, I think we can all agree that we need our own little quiet space sometimes.  You know, from humans called children?  ;)  I grew up as an only child and I'm still not used to all the "noise".  As a mother of three, silence is all I need and want.

Darby + Cody / Lambert's Vintage Wines West Virginia Wedding

So... we booked Darby + Cody's wedding months ago and knew that our trip to West Virginia was coming for awhile. When we have destination weddings, we try to drive it because we just don't like to take any risk with our equipment getting lost or damaged if at all possible.  Plus, we like road trips especially Craig... we love the scenery and sometimes we so wish we had a couple to take photos of when we see some magical places as we drive by them.

Perfection.  What does that really mean?  If it doesn't exist as people claim, then how does the definition of it exist?  In my opinion, perfection is real.... it's just about perspective.  Looking through these photos once again, I remember this day so clearly because it was perfect.

Zehra + Mohsin / Hilton Atlanta Northeast Wedding

We got to spend not one, but three days with Zehra + Mohsin!  Just as culture is different, it's fascinating to see how every culture has their own way of doing weddings.  Where did these traditions come from?  How did they implement the traditions?
