A Photography Website with Shortcuts and Inspiration

Hello everyone! As a Atlanta wedding photographer I am always looking for inspiration.  I have made a website with some links to the information that I refer to most.  It is at http://atlantaartisticweddings.com/class/links.html.  There I have links to photoshop shortcuts, lightroom shortcuts and links to photographers that inspire me.  I have also embedded videos of  George Hurrell one of the greatest photographers.  He was the photographer to Hollywood for years and was the master of the black and white stills that promoted the stars of the time.  I have also embedded a video of Richard Avadon another photographer that inspired me.  His documentary "Dark and Light" is a classic that we can all learn from.  Both photographers shoot in black and white and are minimalist photographers in the since they capture the subject and there is no filler.  We could all learn from them. 
I hope that you enjoy the site and come back often.  I plan on updating it often with new links and inspiration!

Trash The Dress! by Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Hello everyone!  There has been a growing trend among the younger brides for "trash the dress" photo shots.  This involves after the wedding you go out and pick a location to trash your wedding dress.  I just got an opportunity to do one.

I think they are great ideas.  They give the bride a chance to wear the wedding dress again and have a photo shot where they are not rushed by the wedding day.  They get to have fun and not be so worried about being so prime and proper.  This way the are just a girl having fun!

This bride was so wonderful.   We decided to do some fun photos before we went and trashed the dress in the lake.  She wore some sassy cowboy boots.  We did a few shots on some railroad tracks, a covered bridge and some by the lake.  We then moved on to the lake location.

We had a blast!! She was full of energy and gave some wonderful playful poses.  As you can see from the photo the main objective was to have fun!  Which is what all photo shots should be.  I want to thank the bride for giving me the chance to photograph such a unique opportunity.
