Atlanta Wedding Photographers shoot Band with Special Guest


This weekend the Atlanta wedding photographers had the honor of shooting a great band who knows how to get a party started! The band consisted of a awesome guitar player, drummer, bass player, keyboards, horn player, and two of the best singers ever!

I always like a good band who gets the crowd going!  This band got the crowd participation going!  The grooms cousin got to sing and the grooms brother got to play drums with the band.  The crowd loved it, the band loved it and the brother loved it too.  They were so gracious with their time and talents while sharing the music with the crowd.  The room rocked as they played through out the day and night.

As a Atlanta wedding photographer one of my favorite things when shooting wedding is the unexpected.  Well this one had so many wonderful unexpected moments that I was honored to capture.  It is sort of like music and improvising you need to be open to the moment.  Then be aware to listen and look.
Well there was one rocking patron a guest there who told the band he loved "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.  He was probably around 10 years old.  The band  knew the song and invited this young man up.  As soon as he got on the band's stage he turned into a different person.  All of a sudden this little guy became a rocking front man!  He worked the crowd and everyone crowded the stage to get a eyeful of this man.  What I love about the photo is the other women singer in the band being amazed at this little rocker!  Like I said before what I love about wedding photography is the unexpected and this was defiantly one of those!

AtlantaArtisticWeddings Shoots at Strand Theater

Atlanta Artistic Weddings shoot at the Strand Theater located in Marietta Square


The Atlanta wedding photographers at www.AtlantaArtisticWeddings.com shot at the historic Earl Smith Strand Theater.  I would like to give you a little background on the Earl Smith Strand Theater.  The Strand Theatre, is a noted historic landmark on the historic Marietta Square in Cobb County, got its start as a major motion picture house around 1935. The Strand provided movie entertainment to thousands of people of all ages until it closed its doors as a movie house in 1976.   In 2002 community leaders got together and researched the idea of restoring the classic theater.  After a few years of hard work and fund raising they restored this beautiful venue in January 2009.

This particular photo was taken during a wedding in Marietta Square. After the wedding they went to Marietta Square and started taking photos.  The groom mentioned to them that he had a friend at the Strand Theater and that he arranged for them to take some photos from the roof there.  They went to the Strand Theater and the staff there could not have been more gracious!  We went up the elevator and got to the veranda at the top.  The view was stupendous, you could see all of Marietta Square from there.  We took some photos from there and started down the elevator where we were greeted by the Strand Staff.  They noticed that the theater was empty and asked if we could take photos there.  The employee said sure.  They knew exactly where They wanted to go.  We went to the stage and They lined the couple up on the light so they would be back lit.  That was when They got this classic black and white photo in a historic landmark the Earl Smith Strand Theatre.

This weekend was one for the books.  I shot a wedding at the Roswell Historic Wedding Cottage.  It is a great venue in the heart of Roswell.  It has a big open floor plan on the first floor and a large balcony over looking the dance floor.

This particular wedding was a African wedding.  I am so honored to be a Atlanta wedding photographer at AtlantaArtisticWeddings.  One of the my favorite things about shooting weddings is I get exposed to so many different cultures. This couple had two ceremonies.  One a traditional African ceremony and the other a traditional christian ceremony at a historic church.  Before the wedding I did a lot of research on traditional Nigerian weddings. It is basically a ceremony where they bring two families together.  So the two families face each other during the ceremony.  Each family brings gifts for the other and they exchange them.   There is also a lot a laughter and entertaining banter!  Which I loved.  The two moms where great at that!
