Downtown Atlanta Wedding Photography

I recently had a unique opportunity to have a model that had access to a wedding dress. I was not going to let that pass me by. So I set up a shoot in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. More specifically the Atlantic Station area. I felt this area show cases AtlantaThere is a bridge, lake, and this really cool architectural arch. I as luck enough to find some parking right near the bridge. So we started there.
While shooting at the bridge we got some wonderful photos. We took advantage of the
Atlanta skyline and the lights in the background. It made a great back drop to some
wonderful poses. Like I said before Irene was a pro. We got some head shots with the
arch in the background. But my favorite shot on the bridge was some of Irene sitting on
the bridge with the skyline in the back ground.
We then moved toward the columns below the arch. There we got some great back
lighted photos with the help of katherine the photographer’s assistant.
I want to say give a big shout out to the model Irene who was awesome to work with
she was a real pro who delivered! I also want to give a big thanks to Katherine the
make up artist who doubled as a photographer’s assistant. These two women were
awesome working late into the night and in the heat of a Atlanta which can be a lot to
ask of anyone. Thank you thank you and thank you!
Thank you so much for visiting! Please feel free to call me at
and I will be happy to help you in any way that I can.

What I love about being a Atlanta Wedding Photographer

What I love about wedding photography. First let me give you some background on me.  I start doing photography over 20 years ago with film. Matter of fact I still shoot some large format HABS HAER photography for the park service on film. While I love black and white photography with film. I love enjoy the convenience of shooting digital. While I like architecture I love shooting people!

I love shooting people! I am a people person. That is the main reason love wedding photography. I enjoy the range of emotions that come come to wedding. The joy of everyone getting together and witnessing the joining of two people in love. There
is something so very special about that. I am always trying to capture that special moment that two people look at each other and are giddy that they are married! That little moment when the parents look at their kids and are so happy for them. That
moment when the grand parents look on and see another generation has begun. How
can some one not love that!

The other thing I love about weddings is the challenge. You really have to have your
energy level on high. You have to be aware of what is happening around you and what
is going to happen. I have to constantly have to anticipate what is going to happen
next. Where to be to capture the expression on someone's face or to be where the
action is. I am always looking for the little details of wedding that makes it unique to the
couple may it be a candle for a loved one or the bride wearing cowboy boots. That is
one the many reasons I so enjoy wedding photography.

I do believe I was born to be a wedding photographer. I see so many blogs from other
wedding photographers and they are always complaining about this or that. I on the
other hand fell so blessed to be able to shot weddings in Atlanta, Georgia one of the
greatest places in the world for weddings!!!!!!!
