Meredith + Patrick / The Piedmont Room & Park Tavern Wedding

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.

Behind the scenes, many situations can arise during wedding planning season or when you’re planning for a photo shoot. Most people just see the end results which are beautiful photos and to most people, everything looks easy. But, if you’ve prepared for a shoot before or if you’ve experienced a session with us, there are many surprising things that happen.

Working in the wedding business, we have seen all sorts of wedding stories… Really, we could write a book. We’ve seen all sorts of personalities as well, and let me tell you…. Chloe + Zach’s are our fav type. Why? Yes, you got it… they’re so laid back and simply happy.

We all know that weddings take a lot of planning, but did you know that engagement portraits require a lot of work too?  I think one expectation that couples don't have for e-sessions is the planning that goes behind it.

Stories are what makes each one of us unique because we all have a story that's none like anyone else's.  When Craig met Tawny + Neil for their wedding consultation, they shared Neil's love for trains.  As soon as Craig heard, he knew that the Duluth Train Museum would be the most perfect place for their engagement session.

Our next bride, Stephanie, is quite special to us in many ways... Can't believe that we're saying this, but we have been knowing her since she was little.  Like really little!  Through our church, we got to know her amazing family.... and to this day, we admire them so much.  Well, one day, Stephanie was all grown up and started working at the same church that we used to.

As you can imagine, what we do is heavily dependent upon the weather... One of our morning rituals is to check the hourly, daily and the weekly forecast.  If there's any chance of rain or other bad weather that could affect our portrait sessions, we contact our clients with our concern immediately to communicate what other options can be.  But, how many of you know that Mr. Weatherman can be wrong sometimes?
