Detail Shots Are So Important!

Kissed are fun
Love is in the Air!
Well wedding season is starting up and I finished my wedding I shot last weekend. It was a wonderful ceremony and two great people.  It is an honor being a wedding photographer in Atlanta.  I have been photographing weddings for a while now and it is always neat to see what shots are my favorite.  Usually they are the least expected ones from a wedding.  This photo came from just a quick little act of kindness from the groom.  He took the brides hand and kissed it.  Such a nice gesture and made for such an interesting photo.  It are these little detail shots that capture the little moments of the day.  This shot captures the love they have for each other in an almost abstract way.  It is like a little microcosm of the wedding.

The Knife Dance at Persian Weddings

I have had the honor of shooting a couple of Persian weddings this year.  Let me tell you they are a blast!!! It is refreshing to see new and wonderful customs at weddings.  As you know I always say to each bride and groom is to make it your wedding!  If you have not seen the knife dance it is a real treat.  The brides maids and other women start to dance a typical Persian dance with the cake knife and basically asking the couple money for the cake knife.  Once the dancer gets the money, the knife is passed on to the next person and they dance for the couple.  The bride and groom continue to offer money to try and get the cake knife.  After a few dancers the couple is finally given the knife and they are able to cut the cake with the knife.  It is great fun and enjoyed by all!

It is so cool to see all the different cultures and traditions.  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I am honored witness all the diverse weddings and photograph their special occasions.

Have fun at your wedding!

I love photographing weddings!  It is truly an honor being a wedding photographer.  I have seen litterly hundreds of weddings.  I tell you that all the best weddings are the ones when the couple and the wedding party just enjoy them selves.  They relax and enjoy the moments.  They support each other and just have a good time!  

So in closing make the wedding your own and express yourself!  Share your day with the friends and family that mean the most to you. That is a winning combination to a wonderful wedding and a great marriage.

Atlanta Wedding Photographer Sitll Shooting Film with Large Format Camera!


I hope that everyone has enjoyed the 4th of July weekend!  I wanted to share that I am still shooting film.  I have had the honor of shooting some wonderful pieces of history in the last couple of years.  My latest projects have included documenting several buildings at Cape Canaveral NASA facility that were part of the Space Shuttle Program. 
I have always liked the quality of film and the challenge of shooting with a large format camera.  I have been shooting with a large format Sinar camera with plenty of tilt and swing.  They are capable of getting incredible detail and the film can be kept at the Library of Congress to be shared for generations to come.
I am starting to see some of my photos being published at the library of Congress.  You can go to: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/resource/hhh.ga0910.photos.208771p/ and see one of my favorite photos.  I was part of a team that documented Henry Fords Plantation at Richmond Hill Plantation, Georgia.  This particular photo was a long exposure of almost 15 minutes.  It is a photo of the tunnel under the Henry Fords Laboratory that connected to the mansion.
I hope that you enjoy the photo as much as I did taking it.
Thanks so much for visiting!

Downtown Atlanta Wedding Photography

I recently had a unique opportunity to have a model that had access to a wedding dress. I was not going to let that pass me by. So I set up a shoot in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. More specifically the Atlantic Station area. I felt this area show cases AtlantaThere is a bridge, lake, and this really cool architectural arch. I as luck enough to find some parking right near the bridge. So we started there.
While shooting at the bridge we got some wonderful photos. We took advantage of the
Atlanta skyline and the lights in the background. It made a great back drop to some
wonderful poses. Like I said before Irene was a pro. We got some head shots with the
arch in the background. But my favorite shot on the bridge was some of Irene sitting on
the bridge with the skyline in the back ground.
We then moved toward the columns below the arch. There we got some great back
lighted photos with the help of katherine the photographer’s assistant.
I want to say give a big shout out to the model Irene who was awesome to work with
she was a real pro who delivered! I also want to give a big thanks to Katherine the
make up artist who doubled as a photographer’s assistant. These two women were
awesome working late into the night and in the heat of a Atlanta which can be a lot to
ask of anyone. Thank you thank you and thank you!
