Night Wedding Photography in the Rain Can Be Fun!

What is the one thing you can not control on your wedding day......the weather. Usually I don't like using the "R" word (rain).  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I have shot at many venues through out the Atlanta area such as The Atlanta History Center, The Georgian Terrace, The Fox Theater, Whitlock Inn, Rhodes Hall and Naylor Hall.  The one thing all these places have in common is that they are professionals and they know what to do if it rains on your wedding day.

When I am shooting a wedding I leave a little room for the serendipity or the happy accidents that happen on your wedding day.  Sometimes they make for the best photos.  If not for the rain I would not have this romantic photo.  As a wedding photographer I love to challenge myself.  This photo was basically shot in the dark with a couple of remote flashes.  It was a relatively quick set up for such a dramatic photo.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I would love to hear from you.  Please got to my site at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com and go to the contact section and drop me a line!

As a Atlanta Wedding photographer I get to shoot a lot of unique weddings. I want to say congrats to this wonderful couple!  It was a honor to be their wedding photographer and document such a special day.

I have to share with you the most recent wedding I shot.  This bride and groom had a very unique and fun style and it showed from the moment I meet them.  They are anime fans and he loves the comic book character the Punisher.  I loved the little details they had for their wedding!
The Punisher wedding rings 
Of let's start with the bouquet.  Since they were anime fans the bouquet was made from recycled comic books.  As you can see it made for a very colorful bouquet.  The brides bouquet was very durable too!  The bridesmaids also wore converse tennis shoes that reflected their personality.  So one was black, one was decorated in patterns and so forth.  It was fun and also comfortable for the bridesmaids.
Oh let me not forget the rings. Since he was a fan of the Punisher they had purple and black styled rings.  As you can see from the photo above they even had the Punisher logo on one of them.  It reminds me of the old comic book the Phantom. They made for very unique rings.
Thank you so much for visiting my site.  I hope you got a few inspirational ideas for your wedding!  Please contact me at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com

A Wedding Planner Can be Your Best Friend

Wedding Photography by www.AtlantaAritsticWeddings.com 


It is such a honor being a Atlanta wedding photographer.  I get to document some wonderful weddings and meet some of the most thoughtful families.  The two pieces of advice I give every bride and groom is number one this is your wedding.  There will be people giving you advice on your wedding but at the end of the day it is your wedding.  The other piece of advice I give is don't be afraid to delegate.   Everyone at your wedding is there because they love you and they will be happy to help in any way that they can.
One of the good ways to delegate is to hire a wedding planner!  A wedding planner can give you some insight to some of the logistics of a wedding that you may not have thought about. They can be working for you during the wedding.  That way you can enjoy your family and your guests.  They can help you during the stressful times during the wedding when you don't need to get involved.  Such as putting together the wedding exit.  Making sure the food is there on time and in the right place.  They can be invaluable during your wedding day.  
This week I got to work with a true professional. Courtney with Peachy Keen planners is person I was so thankful to work with.  You can visit their website athttp://www.peachykeenplanners.com/  Before I even meet her I knew by the very detailed checklist and time line for the wedding. It had the contacts of all the vendors and time line of the big day.  During the day she was very helpful and insightful when plans may change a little bit during the day which they often do.  She and her team were like wedding ninjas! One more thing that I forgot to mention is that Courtney and her professional team also do flowers!  They are turn key team for your wedding day!

Anime Wedding by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com 


I have to share this unique wedding we shot this weekend.  It was a Halloween themed wedding photographed by the Atlanta wedding photographers at www.AtlantaArtisticWeddings.com.  Every detail of the wedding reflected the taste of the this couple.

Here are a few details that the bride and groom choose.  The couple are very big fans of anime.  The bride had a colorful bouquet made from pages of different comic books.  It was such a beautiful work of art!  The groom was a big fan of the comic the Punisher.  He wore a Punisher watch with matching cuff links. The groomsmen wore watches that wore superhero themed to match their personality.  They also wore buttoners made of pages form comic books just like the brides bouquet.  The bride and brides maids wore differently designed converse shoes to match their personality.  The unique wedding details did not stop there.   The bride and groom had specially made Punisher rings for each other.  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I love it when I have the honor of photographing a unique wedding.

The reception was held at Atlanta's Battle and Brew.  A place where people can get together and play video games. The bar is decorated in anime themed art.  There are actually two Dr. Who Tardis there! One of the Tardis is a entrance to the bathroom!   When everyone arrived there is when things got turned up a notch.  The reception was also a costume party!  Everyone was great!  If you look at the photo above you can see several costumes.  There was one person wearing a Dalek themed dress.  You see a Finn from Adventure time tv show.  Her father dressed up as Yoda from Star Wars.  There were also several steam punk themed outfits also.  You can all these people in the wedding photo above during the bubble exit.

Thank you so much for visiting!  I would love to hear from you.  Please visit www.atlantaartisticweddings.com and go to the contact section and drop me a line.  I promise I will get back to you quickly.
