Mimi + John / St. Teresa of Avila & The Foundry at Rae’s Creek Wedding

Family is everything… that’s a saying that I couldn’t relate to for a long time. I come from a broken family, and my mom is all the family I’ve had. There were times when she wasn’t there either and I was handed from place to place. But, God does miracles and even though my family didn’t look ideal or perfect, my mom’s remarriage saved us.

Through our business, we get to mete our couples. And through our couples and their weddings, we get to meet other wedding professionals. Other wedding vendors are crucial to how a wedding day will flow for us. Working at a wedding is unique in that sometimes, you don’t know who you will have to work with until the day comes.

If you’re from Atlanta, you know that our nickname is “HOTlanta”, right? This summer so far has been quite unpredictable. A crazy heat wave came upon us in May, and it was quite the heat wave. Records were being broken left and right and it left everyone wondering whatever happened to Spring.

“In a blink of eye” is what they told me… That statement has never been so true in my life. I remember when Cherise was a teen. How did we know her back then, you ask? Craig and I were working in the youth ministry together for many years. Teenagers were our life and we loved it!

The way someone chooses to spend their time, effort and money inspires me. We have known Leo + Christianne for many years, especially Leo. Wow, now that I’m counting as I’m writing this blog, I can’t believe that it’s been 15 years. Holy cow!  Craig and I knew Leo when we were all young and single. We all hung out with other mutual friends from our church.

Culture is fascinating to me. In America, we have a unique opportunity where we can experience just about any culture in one place. Not many other countries have that chance. Multiculturalism has been something that always stirred my heart since I was a child.

Shayla + Gregory / The Georgian Terrace Wedding

There are many things that sparks a memory in our lives. Music, places, a certain smell even… With Shayla + Gregory’s wedding, their venue made me remember Craig and I’s 10th anniversary. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Oh my… if you remember your 10th, how long have you been married?” lol This February was our 13th year, and as much as you can’t believe it, I can’t either.

Any “firsts” are special, aren’t they?  The new year or a new season brings us anticipation and hope for something better, something refreshing and new!  As we entered 2019, just like many, we had much to look forward to.

Jessica + Joel / Piedmont Park & Atlanta Skyline Engagement

Knowing that God is an all knowing, omnipotent God, I know and trust that there’s no such thing as “coincidence” or “accident”. Everything has a reason… every encounter we have has a purpose. Sometimes we feel like that we will never meet someone ever again or have any relation to that individual, but you know what?

Over the last decade through our business, we have really been blessed to meet many new people through weddings, meetings and all sorts of gatherings. When you shoot one wedding, it’s like a chain reaction of people that you get to encounter and shoot their weddings too!
