AtlantaArtisticWeddings reflects on Atlanta wedding photography

by the Atlanta wedding photographers at


I can not believe how blessed I am being a wedding photographer in Atlanta.  I get to work with so many wonderful couples and get to document there wedding day!  If you look at my wedding packages I include a engagement session with every package.  The reason I do that is that I get to know the couple what they are comfortable with and to know their story.  They in return get to get more comfortable with the camera and get to know me.   Most importantly they get to take some photos in a more casual atmosphere where they can relax and be their selves.
This particular couple was awesome!  We meet early in the morning when the light is great.  It was also the one day the whole week where it did not rain! We started walking around the different areas of the park where Atlanta wedding photographers usually shoot at.  I then spotted a large puddle where we had to walk around.  Instead of looking at it as a obstacle I looked at as a opportunity!  I noticed the sky line reflection on the water and told them to go to the top of the puddle.  They stood there relaxing after walking around and all I had to do was shoot!  I love their reflection in the water and their casual pose.  Two people in love reflecting on life.  I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I did taking it.
Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you keep coming back and keep in touch with the Atlanta Wedding Photographers here at AtlantaArtisticWeddings.  Please feel free to drop me a line I would love to hear from you!

The Atlanta wedding photographers at AtlantaArtsiticWeddings had the honor of shooting Ian and Amber.  They were such a wonderful and fun couple!  They were so thoughtful to each other and knew how to have laugh!  These thing made the shoot a dream!  They were relaxed and knew how to let there hair down.
The couple have such a great wedding story. I meet Ian in a photography class at Emory Continuing Education where I teach at in the evenings.  He is a big fan of the classic 50mm lens and does a great when ever he breaks it out.  During our time in class he shared that he was getting married where came from in Jamaica.   During our last class he told me he was leaving after class and having some one come to their apartment and marry them before they get on the plane.   I told him I would be honored to do their photography when they get back from their honeymoon.  Well they came back and we finally had a day where it was not raining in Atlanta.  Amber's wedding dress was beautiful it is simple with a empire sort of beach cut dress.  Which was perfect for her and reflected her personality.  We had the shoot early in the morning at Piedmont Park.  It was as if we had the whole park to ourselves!  We captured the Atlanta skyline in the background of in a lot of the photos from our session.
What a great honor it is to be one of the Atlanta wedding photographers here.  We get to meet wonderful people like Ian and Amber then photograph them in beautiful locations with the Atlanta Skyline!

Atlanta Wedding Photographers Shoot the Leukemia and Lymphoma

As a Atlanta Wedding photographer it was a great honor to photograph the Leukemia and Lymphoma the Man and Woman of the Year Awards Ceremony at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta.   The participants of the event worked hard to raise awareness and for research for .  They each had very personal stories that touch the hearts of everyone there.  There is no one that is immune to pain that cancer brings.
A friend of mine Lee Collins asked me to volunteer for this event I said yes but I did not tell him why this charity meant so much to me.  When I was 17 years old my best friend was diagnosed with lymphoma.   When you are young teenager you think that your are invincible and that cancer is what others get.  His name was Danny Woods and we had made plans to be roommates in going to college.  During the school year things got progressively worse for Danny.  They tried all they could with what they knew then.  He lost his hair and his immune system was shot.  He graduated High school but he died that summer.  I still remember going over to his house and hugging his dad when he passed.  We buried him on my 18th birthday.  I still miss his sense dry wit and playing crazy 8s card game on Sunday with him.  I named my youngest son after my Danny.  Funny enough when I look at my son I see a little Danny in there.
My story is just one of many that people have.  It was nice to see so many people being so supportive to one another.  Just a random hug that lets you know that someone cares.  You can't really ask for more.
Please visit and learn about this great organization.  They are making a positive difference in the world!!!!!
