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 :)

Spring is in the air.......

Well at least in my dreams and memory. So far things have been WET - WET - WET and I do hope that pattern will change. I love rain, but not all the time. Spring is one of my favorite times of year hear in North Georgia. When I lived in the Florida Keys so many years ago I always missed that feeling of Spring.....the start of the NEW, everything just looks so lush and green and I just love all the spring flowering trees.

One Of my Brides.....

Here is another piece I created of one of my brides. Sometimes I do get inspired to take a little bit of time for some creative work. I called this piece "Caught in a Whirlwind".

Surprise, Surprise ......

I was looking for a photo of myself to post on one of my online forums I belong to and I came across this one I made. I rarely have time anymore to do this kind of work and I do miss it. I just have to make some time and create some special pieces for some of my brides.
Over the years I have photographed more photos then I can remember of things that I would use for these merged art pieces, so when my associate Laura took this photo of me I just had to do something with it that went a little beyond of just beeing a photograph.

Brilee and Steven's Wedding at the Atrium in Norcross, GA

Friday we had the pleasure of photographing Brilee and Steven's wedding at the Atrium in Norcross, GA. We really loved the venue and all the people present for the wedding, what a fun bunch of people. Courtney, the coordinator at the Atrium was such a joy to work with and so was all the staff. We thank each and everyone for making our job so much fun. Brilee and Steven really had a lovely wedding and Brilee could not have been more gracious.

Brides and Wedding Gowns!

Every wedding that we photograph I am amazed at the beautiful gowns the brides choose. Lauren's was exquisite and suited her so well. Very rarely have I seen the same dress twice and that makes it even more fun, because with each wedding we have a new surprise in store for us as far as the gowns go and it is always a lovely surprise.

Almost Time!

It is almost time for the start of our 2012 Wedding Season to start. I am very proud of myself, I was able to get all the albums done from last fall and I even have a little bit of time to get my studio in order before things go wild again.
It is always so exciting for me when we start on a new season and Steve, Laura and I always look forward to it. Meeting new people and shooting in all those beautiful venues. You either LOVE photographing weddings or you don't, in my case I LOVE IT......I love everything about, I guess I am a romantic at heart. Well, the next update will be from our first wedding this year....keep an eye out for it. The photos of this post are of one of the loveliest couples I ever met. Sean is a total sweetheart and Jenn, well I can't say enough about Jenn, she is as pretty on the inside as she is on the outside......their wedding was our last wedding of the 2011 season and we shot it in December at Chota Falls. I feel so blessed to meet so many nice and wonderful people during the weddings we photograph so I thought I would finish this post with a couple of their photos in preparation of all the good things yet to come in 2012.

First Album Page from a Gainesville, GA Wedding!

Everybody knows I love designing albums and that I love doing it without templates....Sure working with templates is much faster, but it would totally bore me to death. I always get excited when I start on a new album and finish the first page. My associate Laura and Dan photographed this wedding for Cariad Photography since we were booked at another location. Many thanks guys......

Tornado Alley......

So strange ..... on the way home from Gainesville today the radio announced there were tornado warnings and that the storm was right in front of us. I was chicken and stopped at the gas station and waited until it passed through our county, did not feel like getting in a one one one situation with a tornado while I was driving. No place to hide no place to go and in my mind this was a better call. I don't know where all these storms are coming from these days.
