Historic Color Photography

I know I usually blog about wedding photography in Atlanta.  Today I am going to blog about something else I am interested in and that is history.  During the day I work for a historical and archaeological consulting firm.  I have been doing this for about 20 years.  I have always had this interest in historical photography.  I my self still use large format photograph to document such things as NASA and historical properties in the southeast united states.

When recently one of my friends in the archaeology field posted this on their facebook page I had to share it!  Just go to http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/2010/07/26/captured-america-in-color-from-1939-1943/ and you will see some of the coolest historical photographs ever!  I have not seen so many color historical photographs in one place.  Color photography really tells the story. In the photographs you can tell what they are eating, where they live and what the general condition of their housing is.  I have shared one of the photos from the collection on my blog but take your time and visit it yourself and enjoy!

Great Wedding with Baseball Theme!

As a professional wedding photographer in Atlanta I get all kinds of questions.  From where should we do engagement sessions or what ideas do you have for favors at the wedding?   In all those cases I would say let them express yourself and you will the happiest with them. 

This weekend I photographed a wedding and the groom was a baseball player from Georgia Southern.  So the them was baseball.  They were such a great and giving couple.  What they did  with their baseball theme was put out cracker jacks and peanuts.  It was inexpensive, original, a lot of fun and expressed how they meet.  The favors where very well received and I saw people admiring them and munching all night long.

So remember to express yourself it is your wedding!

Beautiful Locations for Photography in Atlanta

I recently shot a engagement shot at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta. When I am working at a shot I am always looking at how to give some variety to my shots.  That way it breaks up the shot and the couple get some different shots.  It also keeps the couple fresh.  When working at the park I got their early to beat the Atlanta heat.  When we got there then we had the large open spaces to ourselves.  That way we could use these spaces and have the Atlanta skyline in the background.  We also had a small pone to work with for a splash of color.  On top of that we also had some great architectural elements for a resource.  We had the historic bridge, columns, gazebos and walkways to add to our photos.
For taking photos in Atlanta Piedmont Park is a great resource!

Engagement Video at Atlanta Artistic Weddings

Hi,
I just had the privilege of photographing another great couple for a engagement session. I meet them at the historic Gwinnett Court House at a bridal show there.  They were so great to work with.  I made a quick movie so they could see their previews at http://atlantaartisticweddings.com/proof/july-18-2010/ .  I always think it is a good idea to have a engagement session.  Everyone gets to know each other and have a great time taking some great photos around Atlanta!

How to look good in Wedding Photos

Hey everyone I hope that everyone had a great weekend.  I recently came across this article.  I am always looking for ways to take the best photos.  After reading this article it really hit home with some very simple tips on how to look better in photos.  The best tip I saw that brides and brides maids can do is extend their arms away from their sides so their arms don't look so large.  Take a few minutes and look at this very informative article.

What a great year for Atlanta Weddings!

This year has been great!  I want to say thank you to all the bride and grooms that have made it so.  I have been honored to work  for so many this year.  It has been a truly a blessing to document their wedding day. 

During weddings I have been witness to so many special moments.  Like being invited to pray with bridal party before they walk down the isle.  The special moment when a daughter is walking down the isle with their father.   It is always great to see families come together and support one another!

Sometimes people tell me I say thank you too much and I say you can never be thankful enough.  So thank you again to all the people that have let me document their wedding!

Fall wedding ideas

Well guys I hope that you have enjoyed your holidays this weekend.  I wanted to share with you a article that I found for "fall weddings ideas" located at http://www.ehow.com/list_5814663_theme-ideas-october-weddings.html. I thought I would post this since this week I have had 3 requests for wedding photography in Atlanta during the month of October this week.
I have done several weddings in October.  I personally think that the weather around Atlanta in October is perfect for weddings.  It is not too hot and not too cold.  The only thing you have to worry about is daylight savings time when you do plan your photography.

I do hope this helps!  If you have any questions I want to help you in any way that I can to make sure you have the perfect wedding.

Great place for engagement photos Piedmont Park Atlanta

I just recently shot a engagement session at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta you can see photos of the session at http://atlantaartisticweddings.com/proof/june%2012%202010/.   The couple were great!  We had so many wonderful places to shoot.  There is the historic bridge, flowers in bloom, gazebo, water and the Atlanta skyline for a backdrop!  The one thing I would say is to get there early if you are going to shoot in the summer because it does get crowded and it does get hot!

I do hope this helps!  If you have any questions I want to help you in any way that I can to make sure you have the perfect wedding.
