Sparkler Exit at Atlanta Wedding

Sparkler Exit by Atlanta Wedding Photographers at AtlantaArtisticWeddings


This week we had another wonderful wedding.  This couple was great!  The bride had a wonderful mermaid cut dress with a beautiful train.  The dress was sleeveless and had some stunning beaded details.  Basically the dress rocked and the bride looked beautiful in it!

I wanted to share with you how I shot this wedding photo.  After the couple did the sparkler exit they wentback inside the wedding venue to wrap a few things up.  While they were inside I grabbed a few sparklers that did not get used on the exit and grabbed my tripod out of the car.  I then went inside the venue and asked one of the couples friends if he could help me and he said "sure!"  I then asked the couple if I could bother them for one more photo.  The bride was very open and said "yes of course!"  I put my camera on my tripod and set it up for a long exposure.  I asked the couples friend to stand behind the couple and to wave the sparklers around. Since it was completely dark I set my flash on full power.  The flash locked thecouple in place and the long exposure let their friend paint the couple with sparkler light without being seen by the camera.

I hope that you enjoy the photo as much as I did taking it.  I want to thank the couple and you for visiting my blog.  I would love to hear from you!  Please go to the contact section at www.AtlantaArtisticWeddings.com and drop me a line I promise I will get back to you!

Thanks again!

Wedding Exit with Sparklers by a Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Sparkler Exit captured by the Atlanta Wedding Photographers at www.AtlatnaArtisticWeddings.com


This sparkler exit is captured the Atlanta Wedding Photographers at www.AtlantaArtisticWeddings.com.   As you can see a sparkler exit makes for dramatic photos!  They produce a great light and make for a fun exit to be enjoyed by all!

I have shoot many wedding exits and the sparkler exit is my favorite!  I will share a few pointers on make a beautiful sparkler exit.  Lets first start with what type of sparkler you should have.  The longer the sparkler the better.  As you can see in this photo that they used the long sparklers.  The long sparklers give you enough time to get all the sparklers lit and give you enough time to slowly stroll though the exit.  The other thing is how to light your sparklers.  It takes a while to light a sparkler with a lighter.  They light faster with another sparkler.  And lastly the most important thing to remember is safety first!  Be sure that you have a safe place to put the sparklers after you have used them.  Have bucket of sand or water on hand to but the hot sparklers after you are done.

This particular wedding was held at Fair Weather FarmsThis place has become one of the most popular wedding venues in this area because of the beautiful landscape and the elegant, country-living style facilities. We take pride in making sure that your special day is both beautiful and stress-free.

Candid Wedding Photography by www.atlantaartisticwedidngs.com

My favorite photography is natural looking and is not posed.  So when I am shooting a wedding I am looking for a the emotional connection between the people during this special day.  During a wedding emotions are high and the connections are many.  So I just love trying the capturing the raw emotion of the day.  I find most of those moments in the interaction between the guests and the couple when they are not looking at the camera.  Those are the candid moments that make up the day.  The sincere smiles the laughter in the moment and the joy of the couple.

When I capture a moment like the one above it just warms my heart.  You can tell the joy in everyone's expression.  It was shot with natural light so there was not distraction from the flash.  I just set my self behind the couple and got the reaction from their guests.  So it is like a first person experience from the couples point of view.

Thank you so much for visiting I would love to hear from you.  Please visit my website at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com and go to my contact section then drop me a note.  I promise I will get back to you!

Wonderful wedding at Ashton Gardens in Atlanta, Ga by AtlantaArtisticWeddings

The Atlanta Wedding Photographers at atlantaartisticweddings shot a wedding at Ashton Gardens

This week I had the honor of shooting a wonderful and unique wedding at Ashton Gardens. The couple were not only marrying to families but two cultures.  They could not have been more gracious and kind to one another.  This wedding reminded my of why I enjoy wedding being a wedding photographer in Atlanta.

The wedding was held at Ashton Gardens out side of Atlanta.  It is a relatively new wedding facility but all the people that I worked with their were seasoned professionals who know how to work a wedding.  It is located in a private forest north of Atlanta.  The have created a very exclusive setting to exchange wedding vows.  They have distinctive glass enclosed chapel to celebrate in style among the surrounding trees, lush greener and fountain courtyards.

The bride chose a beautiful  floaty fabric dress with a A line cut top.    She wore it beautifully and with style!  Her brides maids wore pink long length dresses and tailored for each one.  The groom wore a classic black tuxedo with a bow tie.   It made for a very tasteful presentation!

The bride was from Africa and brought her fun culture to the wedding!  During the all the photos they brought their A game. From when they did their engagement shot with the grooms motorcycle to when during the wedding they brought in professional African dancers!  The dancers preformed a special wedding dance for everyone's entertainment.  They were awesome!  Once the professional dancers were done there was much dancing by all!!!

Thank you so much for visiting I would love to hear from you.  Please drop me a not at www.atlnataartisticweddings.com and go to the contact section and drop me a note!  I promise I will get back to you.

Classic Wedding Exit by Atlanta Artistic Weddings

Photo by the Atlanta Wedding Photographers at www.AtlantaArtisticWeddings.com

I recently had the honor of shooting a beautiful wedding.  It was in Madison, Georgia a small town outside of Atlanta whose streets are lined with historic homes and wonderful historic downtown. Madison was founded in 1807 as the newly formed Morgan County, and named for President James Madison.  The Town was know as the "the most cultured and aristocratic town on the stagecoach route from Charleston to New Orleans".

The day could not have been better.  The weather was perfect not too hot and not too cold.  It was clear and the sky was blue.  The wedding was held at the 100 year old Methodist Church there.  Everyone at the church were so gracious.  The church had recently been restored to it's original splendor.  It had large columns and the classic stained glass windows. The front of the church had the large pipe organ. 

The couple had their reception at the cultural arts center.  They came in with the Elvis "Trilogy" with the Elvis shades!  They could not have been more fun!  During the reception there was much dancing and fun!  The coolest part of the wedding and their engagement shoot was that the groom had restored his very first car he had in high school.  It is a 1963 Impala.  A true classic!  I got took this photo right as they were riding off in to sunset together.

I hope that you enjoy the  photo as much as I did taking it.  Thank you so much for stopping by I would love to hear from you.  Please go to www.AtlantaArtisticWeddings.com and drop me a line in the contact section.  I promise I will get back to you.
