Cherise + Joseph / Sweetwater Creek Park & The King and Queen Building

When I received our next couple’s inquiry, this is what was going on in my mind… The form that came in our email said, “Bride: Cherise Washington” and I read the rest of the form. Then, I went back to the email and read it again. I said to myself, “Cherise” then said, “Wait. OMG, Cherise Washington?!”

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.

So, is the world big or small?  Because there's a saying, "It's a big world out there" and then people say, "It's a small world..." So, which is it?  ;)  Well, for this story, it's a small world.  We got referred to Gabby + Phanna from one of other brides and then when they came to the shoot, they told us another crazy story!

When our clients have their heart set on something, we want to do whatever we can to make that happen for them!  From the beginning, Stephanie wanted to have their e-session at a fair in north Georgia, but she couldn’t get a hold of them…

A few years ago when I was still working at our church, Victory World Church, I meet Hailey, who was a part of our ministry school there.  She helped a lot especially when there were special events and I quickly took notice of her creative skills.

Is it just me or does time go by faster and faster the older I get?  I just don’t remember life passing by so fast when I was younger.  Well, I wish there was a way to slow it down just a little… It’s crazy when I’m out of town just for a few days and I feel like my kids grew a foot and have matured so much.

Have you heard of the phrase “picture perfect?” Well, I better have! :) Iʼve not only heard of it, but I have seen it and it is my job to create it. Sometimes, my wife and I have to remind ourselves to stop seeing the world as picture perfect.
