Can't Dampen Our Spirits!

I love my job!! I just shot a wedding at the Braselton Stover House. If you live in Georgia you know how much rain we have been having. It is just off the charts we have been having flooding through out the Atlanta area.

I just want to share that the wedding that I shot. This couple had the right attitude they were going to get married and the rain was not going to dampen their sprits! You can see the photos of this Atlanta wedding at Atlanta Artistic Weddings.

With some simple adjustments on the camera you can't even tell that it is pouring down rain in this photo.

Make a Rain Plan for your wedding

Today in Atlanta we are having a record amount of rain in short period of time. So I thought it would be a good time to talk about having a rain contention plan for your wedding. After working so many weddings I have seen my share ones effected by rain. The old saying "hope for the best but plan for the worst" is a a good saying because it is true. Most venues I have worked at have always have a back up plan. When working at the Flint house it started to rain and the professionals there turned a outside wedding into a beautiful inside wedding. I have also worked with other professionals such as the ones at the Braselton Stover House. Mary Stover has had many years of experience and a cool head under pressure. Her facility is very conducive all types of weather. As a professional Atlanta wedding photographer I have been trained to be supportive to the couple and to help in any way that I can.

Indian Weddings

I want to say one of the most colorful and beautiful ceremonies is the ones from the Indian culture. Since working at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com I have gotten the honor of photographing Indian weddings and engagement parties. You can see examples of the engagment party I shot by following the link Atlanta Artistic Weddings Indian Engagement Party. At the site you can see the henna Tattoos and the colorful sarongs. It was so great to see everyone dressed in their traditional clothing and celebrating their culture together. As you can tell from the photographs it is a Atlanta Wedding Photographer's Dream!!!

What to look for in a Church when you are having your wedding

I have done many weddings at many different church locations through out Atlanta and the surrounding areas. The one thing that can be said that everyone will agree on is that they are all different! Each religion, minister, church group and church have different rules about what a person can and can not do. It is important to look over the church's rules and to ask as many questions that you can so there are no supprizes. I have talked to many people who think that when they rent a church then they can do as they please. But churches have very unique and specific rules that everyone has to respect. As I have said before I am (the photographer) not the most important person at the wedding. The most important thing is the ceremony and the couple. I don't use flash because I don't want to take away from the couple of the scanity of the ceremony. I am not going to be the obnoxious wedding photographer going behind you during the ceremony.

As always ask questions and look around at the different churches to have your wedding. I know there is one out there that will suit you, your wedding and your beliefs. If you have any questions please email me at david@atlantaatisticweddings.com or you can also look at google maps to find a church that is close to your reception venue or home.
