Athana + Calvin / Ponce City Market & City Skyline Sunset in the Rain

Ten years…. an entire decade. I remember when we reached this milestone. It was a big deal because it is! I absolutely love celebrating special milestones, and I love people who do the same. You should never just let it pass by. Yes, life does fly by because in our society, we all live our lives too busy.

There’s just something about New Year’s Eve… sometimes I don’t know how to think of it. It’s so bitter sweet, you know? It’s exciting that a brand new year is coming, but then again it’s sad that another year has passed. There’s so much hope in the new year and then there are regrets from the old.

Gosh… some people are just adorable. Some people just have the gift of making you feel “at home” the moment you encounter them. It’s truly a gift, and Leah + Kevin have it! I just love people that make you feel comfortable… being a wedding photographer, I feel that photography in itself is actually a very small part of the business.

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.

There's something special and unique we remember from every wedding we have shot, but I must say that Stephanie + Sydney's tops them all!  At that very moment, it was stressful and many decisions had to be made quickly, but you know what?  Everything worked out... in fact, it worked out so great that I think every wedding should be like this!!

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?

Friends... We all want them and need them.  Without them, what is life?  Even with your future spouse, isn't it all about finding your best friend?  We all desire a companion... someone we can go to, someone we can talk to, someone we can cry with and most importantly, someone we can trust.

Looking back on our wedding day, so many things went right and so many things went wrong... or I should say, "not as planned".  One thing we can't forget even if we tried was that it rained.  Rained "cats and dogs". Alllllllll day!  The day before and the day after were perfectly fine. :) It rained so much that we couldn't even attempt to go outside.
