Kimberly and Scott - by North GA Photographer Cariad Photography

Yesterday we had another wedding at Chota Falls. We photographed the brides sisters wedding about a year and half ago and so it was our pleasure to see everybody again and to photograph Kimberly and Scott's wedding.
I instantly fell in love with Kimberly's could you not, just alone the color did it for me so I knew I somehow had to incorporate them into one of our my ring shots.
The couple left their fun reception for a few minutes to allow us to do a few photos in the dark.........and we always love that. This is just a little preview until I get to the actual edit.......

Don't understand this at all............

Some of the clients I booked over the years told me how they appreciated me calling or emailing them right away after they made the initial contact. That is totally normal for me, I treat clients and potential clients the same way I would like to be treated.

This week I was on the other side. I had somebody contact me about photography and Cariad Photography was already booked for their date and so was my associate so she could not shoot it for us, so I contacted another photographer that I trust and who's work I like, but she also was booked. Next I called and wrote to a photographer that I had heard about to see if she would like to shoot the wedding, but guess what........she did not give me the courtesy of even responding.
I had not told her the date so I know she had no reason to just ignore my request for a call back because she was already booked, which in my book would have been rude too.

Now I know how those poor people feel when they contact a photographer and they don't get called back.......... I for one would never trust somebody with my memories if that is how they are from the word go. I guess this is the true difference between a truly professional photographer and somebody that thinks they are. Wake up you so called professionals..........there is so much more to photographing a wedding, customer service is just as important after all your clients are paying you to do a job and they do want you to call them back if they call you.

One thing is for sure, I will never recommend somebody again unless I know how they treat their clients.

Surprise for North Georgia Photographer ....

Sarah and Jordan - Walhalla, SC Wedding Photography

Yesterday we had the pleasure to photograph Sarah and Jordan's wedding in Walhalla SC in the lovely St. Lukes Church. Since I also photographed Jordan's sisters wedding a few years ago it was really nice to see everybody again. Sarah's flowers by The Artisan Honeybee were absolutely stunning and Sarah and Jordan were such a sweet couple to work with. This is just a little preview of more to come shortly.

Tybee Island Wedding Chapel and Wedding Photography by Cariad Photography!

A week ago we had the pleasure to drive to Tybee Island to photograph Liz and Brian's wedding at the beautiful Tybee Island Wedding Chapel. The Chapel was charming and a beautiful backdrop for the couples wedding. Liz looked absolutely stunning in her star stunning and it made our job such fun. The couple had promised me that they would go to the beach with us at Sunset to grab a few photos. It was so easy to get that promise since Brian proposed to Liz at that same beach.
