Ok, so if you know Craig and I… we don’t watch sports. Like we seriously don’t. Ever. Well, I take that back because we watch the Olympics like maniacs (if that counts) and Craig VERY occasionally watch UFC matches.

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.

We rarely call our clients “clients”. We refer them by name because after getting to know them, they’re not a “customer” anymore, they’re a friend. That’s the most fulfilling and sweetest part of our job. October of this year will mark 11 years in business for us, and it has been quite a journey.

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.

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?

They say, “the third time’s the charm.” But, how many of you know that that’s not true? It’s actually, the fourth time. ;) I applaud Meredith + Patrick’s patience because we had to reschedule their engagement session FOUR times! I know…. crazy, right?

One of the most common questions we get is, "How do you get your clients?"  We meet them through many different ways, but one of the ways is at weddings!  We meet at least one engaged couple who is very interested in our photography and we book them!  And yes, this is how I met Kyle for the first time!

"Do you ever get tired of weddings?" is a question that we often get asked.  Are you kidding me?  No... We have lost count, but since our business has begun, we have shot around 300 weddings now, and we have cried at every single one at one point of the wedding or another.

When did Spring ever begin at the end of April in Georgia?  We all know that we've been experiencing unusual weather this year, but it's slowly, but surely becoming Hotlanta again!  I didn't ever think that I would miss the heat, but I guess I've become a true Southerner, and that heat is feeling good.
