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 :)

My Day!

Today is MY day to take a break and just play........I am always happy when I can give my artistic side free run...........
Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers and I took this photo on one of my trips to Germany a few years back. It took a while for me to do to the photo what I had wanted to do, today was finally the day :)

Waterfall Trash the Dress Sessions!

One of my favorite times of summer are the Trash the Dress Sessions. They are always so much fun, specially if we have such a sweet and romantic couple as Jennifer and Billy were. Usually we do the sessions months before or after the wedding, but this year we have one the day after the wedding. I can't wait...... :)

Franklin, NC is known for their gems.....

Franklin has always been known for their gems......but Jodi from  "rik-see Photography" is the biggest gem
that Franklin has. Photographing babies and children is such a special art and Jodi truly has the feeling for those little guys. Her photos are so special and the way she captures the spirit of the children is magical. I am very careful when I recommend another photographer.......I really, really have to love somebodies work and I LOVE Jodi's work.
Her family sessions are equally beautiful......I don't think she can ever do anything that is not. I asked Jodi if I may share a few of her pictures on my blog and she was kind enough to send them to me. I do hope some of my clients will see her gorgeous work and contact her when they want their family, babies and children photographed. Please visit her website to see more of her incredible work.

Wedding at the Dillard House in Dillard, Georgia!

We have been under a threat of rain storms for days, so of course we were hoping it would hold of yesterday when we shot Kristin and Cort's wedding at the Dillard House. It did...........and it was a perfect day. Kristin was a lovely young woman and so kind and Cort and his brother kept us laughing around the clock it could not have been a better day.
I have lived in the North Georgia Mountains for 24 years and every time I see those mountains I fall in love again with the magic of this area. Steve and I feel so blessed to be able to shoot weddings with such beautiful backdrops and if the couple is as nice as this one...........things are just perfect.

Rain, Rain GO AWAY!

Ok Rain, you know the wedding season is is time you go away, at least on weekends :) I don't mind shooting in the rain, but it makes so many brides unhappy. One of my very favorite weddings I ever shot was shot during one of the most violent rain storms ever and we got such wonderful romantic photos in the rain. So girls don't get disappointed, just go with it and enjoy your special day.......even if it rains :)

Interesting Wedding Site! Beautiful gowns, not inexpensive, but least a girl can dream.

Sweet Review!

Reviews are so important in our business and when I found this one this morning on The Knot I felt so good. We love our work, but customer service is equally important to us and it is so nice to see that it is appreciated by our clients. Thank you Jenn and Sean, you were both such fun to work with and your wedding was incredible.

Cariad goes so far beyond expectation! posted 4/30/2012

I absolutely cannot sing their praises enough. They deserve 6 stars if I was allowed to create one extra. My experience with them was more than perfect from beginning to end. Because photos and/or video is the greatest avenue to our wedding memories, we were more picky about our photographer than anything else. Cariad blew me away. We did our engagement photos with them as well as our wedding day and I have never had so much fun and more importantly had the most amazing photo books and prints of my entire life!! Steffi and Steve will keep you on task the entire time before the event and especially the day of. Their attention to detail is so appreciated. Steffi was soooooooo easy to reach (which is so important in planning because it can be hard to juggle all the contacts)-she answered the phone EVERY single time I called her. She would call me about alerts on what to bring, what to remember, etc. It's so stress free working with them and your photos are going to be even more wonderful than you can ever imagine. My best friend is a professional photographer and she was so amazed with their work that she couldn't even believe what she saw. I would promise you over and over again that you will not be sorry you chose them. Price for photos, books, video, etc. is perfect for anyone. They have so many choices, and they bring actual books for you to see. I would have never changed my photographers/videographers for anything in this whole world!! Our wedding/engagement memories are so special to me and my husband......we love Cariad and I hope you chose the most fun, stress-free, and incredibly gorgeous experience that Cariad Photography can offer you and your family!!!
