About Me

My photo
North Georgia, United States
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 :)

First Page of a Chota Falls Wedding Album!


Well just finished the last of the album designs and now I get a few days of reorganizing my studio before the wedding season will get in full swing. A clean studio for a new year..........everything always falls behind when I work 24/7 and it is really in need to get all the cobwebs cleared out :)

A Winter Day in a Wedding Photographers Life :)

February is almost over and before we know it our wedding season will be back in full swing. This time of year I am busy designing albums for our couples and for most I am ahead of time. Usually there is a delay because I did not get the choices of their photos soon after their wedding, but this last season I was very lucky I received everything pretty quickly and hopefully be done with all the albums shortly. I love designing them.........yes, I design the albums, I don't use templates....I want each and every album to be special to the couple and not just the same book with different photos. When I am done I want it to be a piece of art for them to cherish for the rest of their life and I hope my photos will bring back lovely memories of their special day in the years to come.

Today's Bridal Session!




We had a great time with Lauren and her mother during the bridal session today. Here is a little sneak peek of some of the photos we took.

Chota Falls Waterfall Wedding!


Chota Falls is such a beautiful venue and if you wish for a Waterfall Wedding, this is the perfect place. We always love shooting weddings at the waterfall. I can't wait to do the Bridal Session at that venue this afternoon.

Rainy Sunday here in the Mountains!

It is February and we still have not had any snow.......just RAIN and more RAIN. The weather this year is really strange, but that won't stop us from doing a Bridal Session today with one of our brides from March. They decided in the last minute that they wanted to have a photo for their reception. It is a welcome break for me since I have done nothing but design album the last few weeks, it will be fun to shoot a little bit today.

Splendor Mountain - North Georgia Engagement Session.




When Brittany and Chris got engaged we did their engagement session on my best friends estate and venue Splendor Mountain here in the North Georgia Mountains. It was an incredibly beautiful day and being up on the mountain with that view was just to perfect.

Sarah and Nathan's Wedding at Chota Falls!









Since Cariad Photography are the preferred photographers at Chota Falls we are able to shoot a lot of beautiful weddings at this romantic wedding venue just as we did Sarah and Nathan's wedding. Sarah is an incredible artistic young woman and she made her own bouquet and shoes which we loved. It is always so nice to see how each and every couple puts their own special touch to their wedding plans. Sarah's make up was done so well... everything was planned so perfectly by Sarah.

December Chota Falls Wedding!

Jennifer and Sean's December wedding was wonderful.....all the way around. Loved making this slide show video of some of their wedding photos. As we always do these slides shows are a gift from Cariad Photography to their clients.

Leslie and Terrence!


I just finished designing the album for Leslie and Terrence and it made me so happy that they chose this artsy photo for their album. I just loved this couple, they were such a joy to work with and that inspired me to make this piece for them. Sometimes I like to push my wedding photos to the limit :)

Pinterest and Chihuahua's


I joined Pinterest and love it......so many nice things to see and share. I found some photos of the cutest little Chihuahua's, but I think my little Mouse is still the most precious of them all :)This was the little announcement I made when she joined our family.

Album Designs

In the last few weeks I have been busy trying to finish up the albums from last fall before our new wedding season begins and is in full force. This year we start to be busy in March and we are looking forward to all the new weddings we booked so far.
It is always so much fun to meet new couples and to be part of their most special day of their lifes. Steve and I truly enjoy all the weddings we shoot and being romantics at heart it is so much fun for us to photograph the memories of their weddings.
