Classic Black and White Wedding Photography is Timeless

Classic Black and White Wedding Photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com


With 2015 coming to a end I want to spend a little time reflecting and counting my many blessings.  I first want to thank all the wonderful bride and grooms that gave me the honor of being their wedding photographer.  As a Atlanta Wedding photographer I have had the honor of serving some many wonderful diverse couples.  I want to thank all the bridal parties, families and friends that have been so great!

When I look back thought of what ran though all the photos was the classic black and white photography.  I can not say enough about classic black and white wedding photography is timeless.  You can show it to some one 20 years from now and it will still hold up.  I just love the candid fell that documentary wedding photography gives you.  When I am photographing all these weddings I feel that it is a documentary of their wedding day.  During your wedding day things happen quickly and before you know it the day is over.  The black and white documentary wedding photography captures those little moments that make up the wedding day.

Thank you again to all the wonderful weddings that I have been part of it is truly an honor to be their wedding photographer.  I would love to hear from you.  Please go to the contact page of www.atlantaartisticweddings.com and let me know what you think.
Thanks again!

Natural Light Atlanta Wedding Photography by Atlanta Artistic Weddings

by Atlanta Wedding Photographers at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com


I love wedding photography in Atlanta!  As a wedding photographer in the metro area I get to shoot at so many locations.  When I meet with a couple I try to find out where they meet and get to know them more than just as a photographer.  This wonderful couple meet at Emory University and feel in love.  They could have not been nicer!  When I found out that they meet at Emory I said why don't we do your wedding photos there.  They have a great campus with so many places to shoot at!  She agreed,  he agreed and finally the weather agreed!  Using just natural light we had such a fun time with the wedding photos.
When we got there we meet the family and did the first look.  They were so thoughtful towards each other.  They exchanged vows to each other with the family and parents present.  Once they were finished they wanted to get out there and do their photos.
We started at the business school and ended up at the quad in the middle of campus.  The lighting was perfect!  They had such a great attitude and were such fun to shoot.  She braved the slight chill in the air.   During the photo session they just laughed and had such a great time while their friends cheered them on.

An Equestrian Wedding with Natural Lighting

by Atlanta Wedding Photographer at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com

 Natural Lighting and Wedding Photography

I was going through some of my weddings I did this year.  I then came across this equestrian wedding in Atlanta.  It was truly beautiful.  The bride grew up with a few horses.  They were part of the family.  It was such an honor being her wedding photographer.  She was a wonderful bride.  The horse was wonderful as well.
As you can see it was a beautiful sunny day.  It was a perfect day for a wedding!  I love it when brides come up with unique ideas on how to make their wedding special.  When she said she wanted to incorporate the horse in her photos I said “great I am all in!”.  I thought the white horse and the white dress looked great together.  As many of you know I am a Atlanta wedding photographer who loves natural lighting.  So I found a nice little place on their property and lined them up with the light.  It provided a nice little rim light for the hair, dress and grass.  It has a almost fairy tale to the wedding photograph.

Thank you so much for visiting I would love to hear from you! Please visit my site www.atlantaartisticweddings.com and contact me there.

Atlanta Rainy Day Wedding Photography

Atlanta Wedding Photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com


I want to share with you a recent Atlanta wedding.    I want to tell you a little about this bride. One she was great!!!  She embraced the day and cherished her wonderful friends and family.  These bridesmaids were awesome also!  They were so supportive and you could tell they had a bond with the bride that went way back.

As a Atlanta Wedding Photographer I have the honor of shooting at many different locations and situations.  There is one thing no one can do anything about is the "r" word.  When I say the "r" word I mean rain.  Every venue and bride hopes for the best and plans for the worst.  This particular wedding we found out early on that it was going to rain.  So they moved the wedding inside.  As some of you may know that I love natural light.  I will use natural lighting when ever I can.  After the wedding it was time to do the portraits.  Since it was raining I could not take the party outside.  I did how ever see this huge window with white curtains.  I took the bridal party there.  There was a enough natural light to back light the party.  I could not be happier with the results.  It gives a beautiful airy feel. This is a group of people who will not let a little rain ruin their parade!

Thanks so much for visiting.  I would love to hear from you please feel free to contact me at my website at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com.

Thanks again,

Light Painting at the Stone Mountain Cemetery

Light Painting Photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com

One of the things I love to do in photography light painting.  As a Atlanta Wedding Photographer at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com I like to really push the limits of photography. The two of the hardest things to shoot are weddings and night photography to me.   Both are the most rewarding to me. 

As some of you may know I teach at Emory's Continuing Education Program.  I have a great group of students for the Digital Photography II class.  They have been in the program for a while now.  One of the portions of the class I like to do Light Painting.  I like giving this assignment to the students for a couple of reasons.  One it does not take a lot of expensive equipment just a tripod and a flash light or any other kind of light source such as cell phone, laser pointers or spot lights.  It also teaches the students about long exposures and how to deal with different light sources.  Another great reason for giving that assignment is that the results are dramatic and that students are always amazed at how simple it is to do. 

This weekend I took one of the students and his kids to the Stone Mountain Cemetery.  According to the website.

"Established circa 1850, the Cemetery is the final resting place for the villages’ settlers, granite cutters, farmers, and townspeople. It contains graves of veterans from the Civil War to the present.  Its notable rise and view of Stone Mountain is complemented by its granite entry piers and the beautifully carved headstones and mausoleums that lie within it.  This landmark historic site draws scores of annual visitors interested in family and local history as well as passerby’s attracted by its unique features and walkability."

It is one of the older cemeteries in the Atlanta area.  If you are in to history it is a great little side trip!  After your visit you can check out Stone Mountain and historic downtown.  It is a great community with just some great folks!

Thanks so much for visiting.  I would love to hear from you.  You contact me at my website at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com or email me directly at david@atlantaartyisticweddings.com.
