Insight from a Atlanta Wedding Photographer on Engagement Photography

by Atlanta Wedding Photographer at

Atlanta Wedding Photographer at Engagement Photos

I love engagement photography.  It is a way for everyone to get to know each other.  It is the main reason I include it in all my wedding packages.  Everyone will tell you that your best photos are when you are relaxed.  If you did a engagement session the photographer is not a stranger.  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I find it very helpful to have some insight to the couple getting married.  When I am doing an engagement session it is very casual.  I will spend more time talking to the couple than actually taking photos.  By doing that you find out what the couple is comfortable with and what their likes and dislikes are.  You finding out the best way to serve them their wedding photography needs.  You will find out the important people that should be included in their wedding photographs.  The important family members their favorite grandparents.

The main purpose for the photographer in these sessions is to put the couple at ease.  The photographer will have some insight on how to serve them on their wedding day.  It also helps the couple become comfortable around a wedding photographer and a camera.

Thanks so much for stopping by I would love to hear from you.  You can contact me at my website at or email me directly at

Atlanta wedding photographer at Emory University

Atlanta Wedding Photographer

 Lullwater Park at Emory University is a great find for Atlanta wedding photographers

Thank you so much for stopping by.  This week I am going to talk about Lullwater Park at Emory University.  There is a mill race and a two-story powerhouse tower is constructed in a octagonal shape. It now stands open to the sky above, ivy climbing skyward across its stone walls.  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I just love this place.  I had the chance to shot there a few weeks ago.  I have heard of the park but have not shot there before.  The bride suggested the park to me.  I am always open to ideas and was excited to shot somewhere new!

I have made a google map of the park location below.  It is a great place to visit!

Thank you so much for visiting!  I would love to hear from you.  You can contact me at or email me directly at

Engagement Photography by the Atlanta Wedding Photographers at

Engagement Photography at Emory University by Atlanta Wedding Photographers at

This week I had the honor of doing wedding photography at Villa Christina in Atlanta.  The couple were great!  They were just so thoughtful towards each other.  They were so fun!

When you book with a Atlanta wedding photographers at  the engagement session is included.   I love the engagement session! It is a low key photo session.  It is a great opportunity to meet their Atlanta wedding photographer and the photographer gets to know the couple.  We all know that the best photos are when you are relaxed.  This was especially true for this couple.  They just so cool!  Sometimes I give the couple some ideas on posing.  When I let the couple be their selves was when we got the best engagement photos.  When I would just stand to the side and not say anything that was when they would laugh and have a great time.  You can see from the photograph that they are so in love! 

The photography was at Emory University.  While I have shot many weddings at the Emory Conference Center, The Houston Mill House and the Miller-Ward Alumni House I have never been to Lullwater Park.  What a surprise it was.  It is a beautiful park with a water fall, historic house, mill remnants and lake.  There just so many great places for photography.  In the photo above you we used the suspended bridge over the creek.  I would suggest this park if you want to run around the trails or just for a great little afternoon adventure with the kids.

Congrats to this wonderful couple!!  I want to thank the couple and you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy the wedding photos as much as I did taking them.  I would love to hear from you.  You can contact me at my webpage at or email me at

Thanks again!

Atlanta Artistic Weddings Is honored to photograph Beautiful Wedding at Taylor-Brawner Hall

Wedding Photography by

Atlanta Wedding Photography at Taylor-Brawner Hall

As a Atlanta Wedding photographer I get to shoot at a lot of Historic Wedding Venues.  This week I hod the honor of shooting a beautiful southern wedding at Taylor-Brawner Hall.  It is located at 3180 Atlanta Rd SE, Smyrna, GA 30080.  This beautiful historic property is nestled in a huge manicured lawn.  It is owned by the city of Smyrna and the building has a unique history.

In 2009, the City of Smyrna returned an historic local landmark to full functionality. Brawner Hall opened as a mental health hospital in 1910, but the facility had stood vacant since the 1990s. After a complete rehabilitation involving selective demolition and reconstruction, the two-story Greek Revival style facility now provides office space for two City departments, training classrooms, and rooms for rent. Available spaces include a stately Reception Room, two smaller Studio Rooms, and a Conference Room. 

I can not say enough nice things about the staff there.  Tim was so gracious and welcomed the guests and supported the vendors to make a wonderful wedding with out a hitch.  But what really makes a wedding is the wedding party and guests. They were so fun!!!! This Atlanta wedding photographer is honored to be part of such a special day at such a special location.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I would love to hear from you.  You can contact me at my website at or email me at

August Weddings in Atlanta with Natural Lighting by

Natural Lighting Wedding Photography by

Natural Wedding Photography by Atlanta Artistic Weddings

Well it is now officially Atlanta Hot!  That means when you get out side you are going to sweat and be uncomfortable.  I feel for my Atlanta brides!  They are asked to look beautiful and it is over 90  degrees outside and they are wearing a very formal dress with many layers.

That is why I try to shoot as quickly and naturally as possible.  As a Atlanta wedding photographer am not going to let a bride sit outside for too long just for me to set up a shoot.  As I have said in just about all my posts I am just looking for the light.  When it is time for the shoot I have my location already picked out and I am ready to go.  I don't even think of taking the bride outside until I have the location scouted and I have checked out the light.   The best wedding photography is when the bride is relaxed and comfortable.

On this particular wedding shoot I was lucky enough to have scouted the location out weeks before.  It was located on a private horse farm.  The bride and her family could not have been more gracious.  When I brought out the bride I took her to a location where there were no distractions in the background and placed against the sun.  That is where the natural back lighting is accruing.  I got down low so we could have some of the tall grass in the foreground.  This is easily one of my favorite photos and it was so easy to do.

I hope you have enjoyed the blog and thanks for stopping by!  I would love to hear from you.   You can contact me from my web site at or email me at  Also this week I will be at the Bridal Show located at Historic Academy of Medicine at Georgia Tech you can learn more at
