This is the season for Atlanta Engagements

Well it is that time of year when Atlanta family and friends are together and love begins to blossom. As a professional wedding photographer in Atlanta, Georgia I have seen a lot of engagements during the holiday season. There are a lot of reasons for that. One the family is around to share in the joy, young couples want to start out the new year engaged and these are just a couple of reasons.

I recently talked to D Geller and Son for a 20th anniversary ring for my wife. While there the staff was very helpful and helped me with keen insight to diamonds and jewelry. But as we were talking and it came up that I was a wedding photographer we discussed what is out busiest season. And they said that December is by far their busiest season and most of that is engagements.

I myself have noticed the trend that most of my bookings have been in the early part of the year and mater of fact this week I have already had two people wanting the same date in June for a wedding.

So in closing it would be wise to book your wedding photographer and venue as soon as you can so you can make sure you get the date you want. Remember the popular dates in June and April quickly.

Once again thanks so much for stopping by!

Christmas Weddings in Georgia

Ah Christmas, it is a wonderful time. If you think about it. It is the time you think about being with your closest family and friends. Family travels from near and far come to one central place to celebrate and enjoy each other's company. So why not have your wedding then?

I know there are a lot of weddings in Atlanta at Christmas time. I myself got married on New Years eve because I knew my family would be in town to celebrate and they could easily be at my wedding. As a professional wedding photographer in Atlanta I think it is great to celebrate the New Year, the birth of Christ and new beginnings with the one you love this time of year! So don't let Christmas stop you from having your wedding, let it help you get your family together to celebrate!

Thanks for stopping by!

Help for Atlanta Brides and Grooms

I just want to let everyone know that I have updated my site for help for Atlanta brides and grooms. During the last year I have been very busy updating my site with the vendors that I thought were good. There are a lot of wedding vendors out there so I wanted to share my ideas with you.

As a professional Atlanta Wedding Photographer I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of vendors. Most of them have been great! I like to pass on and share these wedding vendors with all the brides and grooms. I have designed the site at to do that. There under the Atlanta Wedding vendors section you will find a list of musicians, DJs, caterers, venues and flower arrangers. I do hope you find this list valuable.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas time and weddings

What a wonderful time of the year! Christmas and New Years a time of new beginnings. I always enjoy the Christmas Weddings. Usually at a facility they have the romantic lights up and everyone is in a good mood for Santa!

Being a professional photographer in Atlanta I would suggest booking your wedding in advance that way you are sure to get the date you want. It is a popular time for venues around Georgia and not only to you have to compete with other brides wanting your date you have to also compete against company parties.

Looking at Historical Venues around Atlanta

View Atlanta Wedding Locations in a larger map

I was recently asked what I like about doing weddings and I responded everything! I especially love doing weddings at historical locations around this great town Atlanta. I have worked with some great professionals. I have listed DJs, musicians, wedding planers and locations that I thought were great.

I have also made a map of some the great locations. It is a interactive map showing a photographs from the different locations and venues I have had to honor to work at. I have designed this map to help brides and grooms to find a convenient location wedding location around Atlanta. With this map they can easily look and estimate how long it might take a guest to get from certain church to a favorite venue

Some of my favorite locations are the historical venues. As some of you know I have been a full time photographer for different archeology and historic research firms around Atlanta for close to 20 years. I have learned truly appreciate some of the greatest historical sites in the state. My most recent find is the Brasselton Stover House.

You can see images of the facility at their web site at It is located outside of Atlanta in the Braselton Historic District. There you will Mary and Marvin Stover. They are real down home people that will do their best to make your wedding a day to remember. They have recently added a addition to the back of the historic mansion. You can see some photography I shot there at my site There are so many interesting places to shot there from the front porch to the side yard with the historical barns. Also the facility has one of the best bridal rooms of any facility I have seen. It is a really under appreciated wedding facility at a great price!

Thanks for Stopping by!

Wedding Detail Shots

One of my first things I see after I soak in the beautiful dress I look at are what accessories she is wearing. She never just throws something on. There is always a story and forethought in everything she is wearing. I take love just sort of hanging back and taking these detail shots of necklaces, rings or ribbons. The bride loves to share the story of what she is wearing. Then all of a sudden she is letting you in to a very personal part of her life.

The real thing I like about the detail shots is they are sort of a abstract story of the wedding and the couple. At first glance you might see a flower, shoe and garter. But from the brides perspective it is the flower her dad brought her before the wedding. Shoes her mom wore on here wedding day and a garter her friends bought on a girls weekend out.

Don't over look the details they tell the story!

Thanks for coming by!
