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 :)

Kelli and Daniel's Wedding at Chota Falls

I work around the clock this time of year so our clients get their photos in a timely manner. September, October and November is always really busy for us as far as shooting weddings and
in between we have engagement sessions for our couples for 2014.  I might not do much besides editing right now, but it does pays off because I am only 3 weeks behind which is really good for all the weddings we shot during the fall. I am almost done with Kelli and Daniel's edit and I thought I would share a few of their photos.

Beechwood Inn Wedding of Candy and Tom in North Georgia.

We just loved, loved photographing Candy and Tom's wedding at the charming Beechwood Inn in Clayton, GA. This little Inn is to precious and if I did not live in the area I would for sure love to spend a few nights there. It was absolutely perfect for this couples intimate little wedding and the food was to die for. Yes, we were invited by the couple to enjoy dinner with them after we finished taking their photos, what a sweet treat, this sure made this north ga wedding photographers day :).

Photographing Older People!

I have always loved photographing older people and people with a lot of character. At a recent wedding I had the pleasure to photograph the parents of our bride dancing and the look that her father had in his eyes after 54 years of marriage warmed my heart.

This couple was a prime example of what marriage is suppose to be. You could feel the love between those two people by just watching them dance. I lost my parents a long long time ago and I wonder if they were still alive if I would see the same kind of love in their faces. Treasure your parents and the love they have for each other it is such a special thing.

Walter's Barn Wedding by North GA Wedding Photographer Cariad Photography!

This past August we had the pleasure to photograph Amanda and Tony Hosch's wedding at Walter's Barn in Lula, GA. This North GA wedding photographer had such a great time to record this couples special memories. Amanda and Tony were delightful from the word go..........we had a blast shooting their engagement as well as their wedding.
Walter's Barn is a lovely rustic venue with green rolling hills, ponds and a lovely barn. The staff at this venue was extremely helpful and we can't say enough about them. The Enchanted Florist out of Commerce, GA created all their beautiful flowers and Amanda looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous wedding dress.

Yesterday their sweet wedding was published by the Savvy Deets Wedding Blog and we are so thrilled to see the wedding featured. A big thank you to the couple for allowing us to photograph their special day and to this lovely blog for once again publishing our work.

Wedding versus IPhone Commercial a Plea to Wedding Guests!

As professional wedding photographers we always strive to give our clients the very best photos of their special day. Sometimes as hard as we try it is very hard to do our job because some of the guests insist of taking photos with their IPhones and Tablets of various sizes. I know they don't mean to make our life more difficult but they do, if nothing else they should keep in mind that the couple could have such wonderful photos of their ceremony instead of Apple worthy commercials.

Some people even get so caught up in their phone photography that they step right in front of the photographer who was paid to catch those special moments.............. so not only does the couple
not get the photo quality they paid for but chances are a very special moment was missed by
the paid photographer just so somebody can get a less then perfect photo to post online to show that they were there.

If anybody is planning on attending a wedding please keep your phone or tablet in your pocket or purse, enjoy the ceremony and this special time of your friends or family and let us do our job. This is not about money, this is about giving our clients wonderful photo memories and we would so appreciate your understanding.

A request to our couples or any couple that is getting married, please make your wedding a unplugged event!
