Have you heard of the saying, “Show me your friends, and I’ll tell you who you are?” One of the things my pastor mentions often is that “You are an average of the 5 people that you hang out with the most.” I agree with these two statement 110% and as parents, we always emphasize to our kids how important it is to make good friends.

Through our business, we have had the privilege to connect with many people. Now, through our photography education business, CO Backstage Pass, we are getting to know more photographers more than ever before. We launched this business in March of this year… it has been a dream of ours for several years now.

Every time I write a blog, it gives me a time of refection. I’m thankful that this is part of my job because I have to do it, and it’s good for me. When you reflect on things, it makes you slow down and really realize how much you do have and how much there is to be thankful for.

Fulfillment is a need that we all have as human beings. It gives us purpose and a reason for why we do what we do.  We are really blessed to have clients who gives us their 100% support.  How amazing is that?  Sometimes, It’s just unbelievable to us. Before we introduce our next couple, let me give you a short little history.

appreciate our job more and more as I get older. The flexibility is priceless and the adventure is indescribable. I have to constantly remind myself to not take it for granted. Through our business, we get to see many places and experience all sorts of things, but meeting great people is what we love the most.

Veronique + Joshua / W Midtown & The Temple Atlanta Wedding

We spend our lives trying to perfect everything we do, what we look like, who we are… But, the reality and the truth is, perfection doesn’t exist. It’s a goal that we will never accomplish. When it comes to weddings, we spend way too much time trying to plan a perfect one.

For Mimi + John's session, we got to see them not once, but twice!  They had a special engagement ceremony in Augusta back in May and so we did some portraits for them there, and then this month, they came up to Atlanta to get some city shots here.

The older I get, the more I realize how small our world is.  Until we met Michele + Jung, we didn't know that we had so many mutual friends!  It's neat how much closer you feel to that person when you have something in common - they call that a "me too" moment, and it literally makes you feel more comfortable with that person.

Oh, I just love this couple!  They boldly declare their love for Jesus and that their love for Him is the reason they’re together… What a beautiful thing… Love that the cross was their priority.  I have so many memories myself at this particular cross.

Megan + Philip / The Estate Buckhead Wedding

Megan + Philip / The Estate Buckhead Wedding

Just when I think I’ve shot at every venue in the Atlanta area, I realize I haven’t!   When Megan told me that she was getting married at The Estate, I was like, “Oh yeah… I would LOVE to shoot there!”  It’s so neat how when you look at a bride, you can get a sense of their style right away.  When we met with Megan and Philip, we just knew that this couple defined classy.
