Wedding Monday: Bridal Bouquets

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’m so excited to be able to introduce my first Wedding Look Book for 2016. I had some amazing couples last year and I’ve been blessed enough to gain several new couples so far this year.

In the Wedding look book you’ll see some of the weddings from 2015, Q&A, along with engagements for couples that will become husband and wife in 2016!

Feel free to take a look inside!

 

Have a wonderful Week!

 

 

Word is out, Barry & Topaz are getting Married!!

It was such a beautiful Fall day at the Historic Fourth Ward in Atlanta. Though I’ve shot at this location before, I feel because it’s such a very big park that no matter how many times you go, there’s always room to make each couple feel as if this place was made just for them.

Barry & Topaz are my Pray, Love, Laugh, Work couple.  What I loved most about this shoot, was they allowed me to see the love they have for each other, the way Topaz would laugh with her head close to Barry’s Chest, her body language when she was talking to him.  Barry looked at Topaz with such pride, his eyes would light up and his smile would be so big…what a blessing it is to be loved, to feel love and accept love. They are just Beautiful

I hope you all will enjoy this beautiful Engagement collection as much as I enjoyed capturing it!

The comfort of Love

Shinning a Spotlight on Wedding Coordinators!

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.

Atlanta Engagement: Ajay & Cedreon

Ajay and Cedreon were friends in High School, but didn’t become a couple until they were in college. They been dating for 3yrs when Ajay decided to ask for Cedreon’s hand in marriage.  Ajay and Cedreon became engaged on May 9, 2015. I felt Winn Park in Midtown Atlanta was a beautiful place for their Engagement session. It’s located about 10 minutes from Piedmont Park, with some of thee most beautiful homes surrounding it.

I ‘m excited for Ajay and Cedreons wedding day which will take place at the beautiful Historic Old Fourth Ward Park. They are a match made In heaven! Love truly Wins!
