Happy Wedding Monday Everyone! Brides! Brides! Brides! What’s your favorite Flower? What flower will be displayed at your wedding?
This September will be 19yrs of Marriage for my Husband and I, so I’ve decided to share some portraits from my wedding, along with some of my favorite client’s Bouquet arrangements.
This was my wedding bouquet from 2000, No my bouquet was not Real, But it was designed by my Aunt after she saw a similar one in a wedding magazine. I absolutely love Calla Lilies…and Roses. The best part of my bouquet being artificial is I can still have it displayed in my home!
Being a Wedding Photographer I have captured some Beautiful Images of real wedding bouquets by some very talented Floral Designers.
The interesting thing about when I got married, I never even thought about having real flowers. Do Brides even do artificial Floral Bouquets?
So here are some of my Favorite Bouquets from my Beautiful Brides on their Wedding Day!
I Hope you all have enjoyed some of my favorite Floral Arrangements from my Amazing clients. If your looking for a Wedding Photographer, Please contact me I’m always excited to capture your Amazing Wedding Day!
Mallory and Latisa were married at the beautiful Buford Community Center in Buford, GA. It was a beautiful day that was filled with so much love and happiness for Mallory & Latisa. I am very grateful they chose me for this wonderful moment in their lives.
The couple decided on their first look to be before the ceremony. Latisa was so anxious for Mallory to see her, and he didn’t let her down…he was truly in Aw over his Beautiful Bride-to-be.
A special thanks to Tastefully Southern Events for the amazing job they did on the Bouquet, Cake and Décor. Everything was just amazing!
From the First dance to the last dance DJ C-Los had the guest dancing.
What a beautiful Couple and I am wishing them a life time of happiness!!!
Thanks to the wonderful team of people for making sure the day was a success:
I had the pleasure of working with this wonderful couple for their engagement shoot Ms. Latisa and Mr. Mallory! The wonderful couple will be exchanging their vows this April, at the Buford Community Center and I can’t wait to capture the beautiful moment!
The weather was beautiful and this location was perfect for them. They both were truly in the moment and Latisa blessed us with her wonderful contagious laugh! They danced, kissed and laughed and it was beautiful!
What I loved most is the happiness that was shown between the two of them for each other, Mallory looked at her with such pride and Love, with Latisa looking back with such confidence in knowing this was her prince charming… it was just beautiful.
I hope you all feel and see the love that took place on this shoot and the love they have for each other. I’m so excited for them…I pray they continue to Love, Dance, and laugh for many years to come!
Just like their Fall engagement shoot, Barry & Topaz Wedding was Absolutely Beautiful! There was so much Love surrounding them. The weather was great and the Historic Fourth Ward Park was the perfect spot for a #WelcomeToLillyLand Theme!
They both wrote their vows, which left you understanding their love for each other. Their relationship is built not only with love but friendship, respect, support, and confirmation that they see the beauty in each other.
From the mist of water blessing them during the ceremony, to Topaz mom showing up in the beautiful form of a Rainbow(that you will surly see throughout the images). I felt blessed to be apart of this wonderful union. They will forever be apart of the Gober family.
Barry & Topaz Lilly, I Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a blessing to my life, you both bring such Happiness and Love to those who are in your presence. I Pray for continued love and blessings for your Union.
A special thanks to so many who helped make this day a success for the Lilly’s:
I had such an amazing time capturing the Perfect10 band. They all are just wonderfuul people and made me feel like I was apart of their family.
I knew they were looking for new images for their website, so before our shoot I had the opportunity to view their old website and learn more about them as individuals and as a band. I will just say, I was really blown away from all the amazing Talent in one group. They have worked and played for some of the greatest artist in the country…from Gloria Gayner, India Arie, Outkast, and Janelle Monae,Photos, Pat Metheny, and Melanie Fiona…just to name a few!
I’m grateful for the amazing opportunity that Perfect10 band gave me. I see why they feel so much like a family on and off stage and what makes them the Perfect10! I’m extremely proud of the work that was done to showcase their talent, personality and the absolute beauty of their band.
Perfect10band is the band to call if you’re looking for a wedding or any event. They will bring true talent,and a party that your guest will never forget!
It was truly a hot summers day in Georgia, but love was in the air! Sophia was happy and Brian was excited and Nervous…He said “I just want her to have the perfect day.” Though this as their day, his main concern was her being happy.
And it was just that…Perfect!
The ceremony was beautiful, from the minister having them pray for one another to having them both ask for forgiveness for anything they may have done or said in the past. Giving Brian and Sophia a fresh start on the new chapter in their life as husband and wife!
Sophia & Brian, I thank you both for allowing me this opportunity of capturing your special Wedding Day! I pray your Union is forever blessed and that you both continue to believe, pray and forgive one another.
Though the date was April 1st, there were no jokes being made. After all, Trey & Tiffany were getting married and this was a day of Celebration!
This day was filled with moments of happy tears and moments of laughter that would be shared just between Trey & Tiffany! This was the beginning of their union. Witnessing love not only between the two of them but the love that was shown from their family and friends. I couldn’t help but admire Tiffany’s Grandmother while they were embracing, and the beautiful smile on Trey’s Mothers face when she danced with her son. These were Priceless Moments!
The Piedmont Room was the perfect place to showcase their love for each other and their love for Travel. Trey and Tiffany worked with the amazing Eternity Events by B. Simms team to bring their Travel inspired Wedding to life. From their signature drink “Happily Ever After” to the beautifully themed (favorite places to travel)table décor. I would say…they were giving their guest a peek inside their love for travel!
So no, this wasn’t your typical April Fools Day, but it was the beginning of Mr. & Mrs. Ashley’s Life together as husband and wife, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity of capturing this beautiful moment!
Special thanks to the wonderful team that helped make this day a success for Trey and Tiffany:
There have been moments that I’ve found myself smiling, laughing and even shedding a couple of tears this year… not from sadness, but because I’ve been able to witness Love in so many ways from my clients.
We all express love in different ways, it may be a look, a touch, or even our words but how ever we choose to show it…it’s Love. Accept it, appreciate it and embrace it.
My love for 2015, is because of the many loving beautiful people who let me into their lives to see how they love. Thank you all for being in the moment, for being comfortable enough that you could display your love in the presence of me and baby Jean(my camera). Your smiles and love will forever be apart of my heart.
Please, click and enjoy some of the love I’ve had the pleasure of capturing in 2015!
A family of love! Mom and Dad holding hands, I had to pause for a moment to let them know I appreciate it. It’s the little things.
Love between a mother and her child.

Being a wedding photographer I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of wonderful people. But I felt the need to show some appreciation for the Wedding/Events Coordinator Industry. This particular industry plays a huge part in a successful Wedding.
My recent experience was with the company Events by Ardeen. From the very beginning of booking they were very detailed, helpful and extremely professional.
When I think of a wedding coordinator, I think of a person who makes sure the bride is stress free and seeing that the day goes smooth. But that’s not all…don’t get me wrong those are some very important things, but there’s so much more to it.
Some of the things I liked that Ms. Ardeen timeline helped me with were:
-The names of all the venders with name telephone number and or address.
-hotel accommodations for the bride
– the music…this allowed me to get to know the couple even more. We all have our favorite song that maybe reminds us of special moments. I listened to some of the songs I wasn’t familiar with and watched some of the videos.
-though usually I have my own agenda for the after wedding family portraits…I was so appreciative that she had a big enough staff that she made sure we got those images but more importantly, that we didn’t go over into the bride and grooms personal and intimate portrait time.
Though things happen on special occasions that are sometimes out of man’s control…remember that your wedding day is just that…Yours. Work with someone who sees your vision and who wants your day to be just as special and stress free as you.
So for all you wonderful beautiful brides, I encourage a Wedding coordinator (if it’s within your budget). You will be so extremely happy you did.
Sending all wedding/event planners a wonderful smile, high five and especially an appreciation for all that you do…This spotlight shines bright just for you.
