The love between two people being in the moment, shows with Tiffany and Tray! During this time of the year in Atlanta you really can’t be sure what the weather will be like.
The morning started being just a tad bit chilly, but soon warmed up once we got to moving around and embracing the moment. Well honestly, Tiffany probably warmed up sooner the I…she had the warm arms of Tray to keep her warm. Don’t you just love Love!
I’m so excited they’ve chosen me to be apart of their special day in April.
Love and Laughter
Love of my life
Look of Love
She’s my everything
Laughter of Love
We’re getting married
Love in paradise
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.

So often we pass up opportunities to leave the next generation a portrait of knowing or wanting to know who we are.
How often have you heard family members say you resemble someone in the family that you’ve never seen? Maybe it’s your eyes, nose or that little dimple you have on your chin. But the only problem is, there’s no picture…so you’ll continue to hear the stories and never see an image.
Here’s a few suggestions to help you get that photo shoot checked off your to do list this year.
-With New Year resolutions in full effect, reward yourself with a photo shoot when you reach a particular goal.
-Book a session for when you know family members will be in town for Family Reunions, Mothers Day, Easter or any other holiday.
-If your on a tight budget, check out Living Social or Groupon…some of my favorite clients are those who purchased from these two companies.
-If you’re not sure what photography company to use…CHOOSE ME! 😉 Or ask close friends, family or coworkers for recommendations.
Whatever your reasons, let 2015 be the year to make it happen.
I’ll leave you with this quote from a recent client:
“Mom you should take a picture by yourself, if something happens to you at least we’ll have a recent picture to use”.
