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.

Everyone has a story… and that story is what makes them special, unique and valuable. I value Cristabel + Curtis’s story so much. I don’t know every detail and unless you’re in that relationship, you’ll never know it all, but what I do know is this. They have gone through a lot, many decisions and much love through it all.

I remember when my mom used to always say to me, “One day, you’ll understand.” I’m sure that every mother has said that to their kids, and what’s ironic is that I’m saying that to mine now too. Yes, I do understand now. I’m sure there are even more things that I’ll soon understand, but as I get older, I’m “getting it” more and more.

Emily + Cameron / Spring Lake Wedding

Emily + Cameron / Spring Lake Wedding

Some people have a special gift in welcoming and making that person feel like family… They invite you, encourage you, feed you, ask about you… They just know how to simply love someone. It comes so naturally, so genuinely and authentically. Emily and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ house and as soon as we entered their home , that’s exactly how they made us feel. Completely and totally welcomed.

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.

Holly + Mason / Atlanta Beltline & Ponce City Market Engagement

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.

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.

Weddings are special in many ways. It’s a common place for people to meet and connect. I think it’s great because it’s a time of celebration, everyone is in a good mood and everyone is also looking their best! When we ask couples how they met, weddings is an answer that we’ve received many times.

“You have such a fun job.”

“I wonder what it’s like to only take pictures as your job.”

“I mean, all you guys do is take pictures. How hard can that be?”

“So all you do is take pictures? You can make a living out of that?”

Those are real comments that we have received... MULTIPLE times and it cracks us up because I don’t know what my friends do exactly either.
