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!

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!

This was a very exciting shoot, and I’m so grateful that Onaly’s mom chose me to capture this moment for her!
The girls were so excited to have their own photoshoot and I was excited to see them have a really good time in front of the camera. They all were sweet young ladies with wonderful spirits. They were singing and dancing and having a great time, being in the moment.
The location that was chosen was Cabbage town which is one of my favorite spots to visit in Atlanta. There’s so much to do and the artwork is Amazing!! Happy Birthday Onaly!!!
Hope you all Enjoy!
With the new addition to the Marshall family Mom was ready for some updated portraits and what a wonderful shoot it was. If Mom and dad look a little familiar it might be because they were with me back in March doing their maternity shoot waiting the arrival of Devyn! This was a beautiful shoot and a great time to capture their family portraits!
Thank you so much Marshall family wishing you all a very Happy Holidays!
So I’ve been wanting to do some before and after’s for a while. Mainly because I never show them, but I really wanted to let you all see the process. So when I was asked to test out the sleeklens Photoshop actions , I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
Now, I’ve always been hesitant of using some of the Photoshop portrait actions that are out there, mainly because when I see the examples…they are usually not of African American’s.
If I use actions, it’s because it takes a lot of time off of my post processing and I can have a better turnaround for my clients. I’m not looking to spend 45mins on one image because I have to make adjustments to a Photoshop action.
But with all that being said, I picked five portraits and used the sleeklens Photoshop actions. With these actions, it was pretty easy to use. I like the Portrait Retouch and the Dodge and Burn(from a candy store)…A lot, These two actions made enhancing the eye color process very easy and fast and also softening the skin worked great also. I also liked using the Color Corrections, you can reduce some of the over barring colors that are in the images which the greens and reds work perfect!
Over all, I would recommend using Sleeklens, it does take some time figuring out what works best for your workflow and your style, but that’s with any post processing method you choose.
With this portrait I chose to use the portrait fast retouch for the eyes, I also used the base from golden hours.
The next four were a combination of Portrait smooth skin, Color correction and Base.

I met Brooklynn in 2013, while capturing her and her bestie for High School portraits. Now this beauty is Graduating from #UGA with a degree in Education!!! How very exciting this moment is for her and her wonderful family.
Being accepted to a University such as UGA straight out of High School and now graduating, are not a small Accomplishments. As with every college graduate You deserve to be celebrated. So, I celebrate your accomplishments and pray that the career path your on leads you to moments of pride, change, and self fulfillment.
