- I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and photography is my passion. I used to be a successful fine artist, but since I shot my first wedding I never looked back. I am madly and completely in love with weddings, I guess it is the romantic in me :)

When Brooke and Steve got married a couple of weeks ago and she decided that she wanted to do a Trash the Dress Session she chose to do it at the Chattooga River in North Georgia and use it as the backdrop. The Chattooga Bridge on Highway 76 was the first bridge she ever build so this lovely place was very special to her. Brooke and Steve will move to Japan very shortly and I hope looking back on our time together doing that session will always bring her joy and great memories of a fun afternoon. We sure had fun photographing them and it was so nice to get to spend some extra time with both of them after the wedding.

Saturday we were busy photographing Stefanie and Stephens wedding at Chota Falls in North Georgia. It was a really lovely event and everybody was so nice and that made our job so easy.
We had met Stefanie and Stephen when we did their engagement session and we instantly liked both so much and it was so great to photograph their special day this past weekend. Steve, Laura my associate and I feel so lucky that we can shoot weddings at such beautiful venues. Henry Luther the in house florist at Chota Falls created such a colorful bouquet for the bride......I am always amazed at the pretty things he designs.

Sometimes while I am working I am coming across some weddings from the past and it is always a joy to see the photos of the weddings I really enjoyed shooting like the one of Shelly and Elliot at the King Plow Arts Center in Atlanta, GA again.
Being an artist I loved incorporating the artwork into the wedding photos.....it was truly a lot of fun and Shelly, Elliot and their entire wedding party were such a joy to photograph.

We do a lot of engagement sessions, but yesterdays session with Brittany and Chris was pretty special. The couple decided that they wanted to have a picnic theme for their photo session, but Brittany went above and beyond, she is an aspriring caterer so she created this incredible picnic for all of us.........YES, ALL of us, she invited Steve and I to join them after the shoot. The day before we met she send me the menu and you will have to admit it is quite incredible.
Broiled Pork Tenderloin Skewers with Bell Peppers, Onions, and Bacon
Roasted Corn on the Cob
Raspberry and Lemon Cupcakes
Sparkling Raspberry Wine
It did not only sounded wonderful, it was fantastic. Thank you for inviting us Brittany and Chris.......our engagement sessions might never be the same after this one :) we sure felt spoiled. I also want to thank my best friend Chevin Woodruff to allowe us the use of her breathtaking property. Splendor Mountain was beautiful as always and it could not have been more perfect.

Brooke had a Trash the Dress Session the day after her wedding on the Chattooga River in North Georgia. It was great fun for all of us.
This past weekend we had another lovely wedding at the Lake Rabun Pavillion. Brooke and Steve had a perfect day and everything was lovely...... I just loved the spring feeling of the flowers Brooke chose. The bride dressed at her parents home way on top of a beautiful moutain and gave me a chance to get a photo of her dress with the mountains in the background and the visit of a hummingbird just made it perfect.
Congratulations to Brooke and Steve.
