Wedding Dress taken at Sunset by Atlanta Artistic Weddings

Wedding details and Wedding dress at Sunset
Wedding Dress Detail Photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com


It is all about the light.  I love shooting in mornings and evenings when the sun is low in the sky.  Recently I had the honor photographing a wedding on a lake at sunset.  It was raining the day before but the clouds moved away and we had a beautiful wedding day for our special bride.  When I saw the dock on the lake where the wedding ceremony was going to be held I just knew that I wanted to use it for the bride and groom shots and detail shots of the wedding dress.  It was about a hour before sunset and I asked the bride if I could please take some detail shots of the wedding dress.  It was a little breezy that day so I set up the wedding dress and waited for the perfect moment for the photograph.  The lake was lake a mirror of warmth that highlighted the wedding dress in a warm glow just like the bride.

Welcoming the New Family Member | Children Photography by Atlanta Artsitic Weddings

Photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com
Recently I was contacted from one of my pasts brides.  She let me know that she just had a baby and wanted me to do some baby photos!  I was honored!  It is so cool to see a couple and their next stage of life.  A couple of weeks after the baby was born I went over to their house and saw the cutest baby ever!  These were some proud parents.  And wouldn't you if you had the cutest baby ever.  I just love the children's expressions.  Everything is so new to them and they get so excited!  This was a simple shoot I just used a simple basket and some natural light.

So at this time of year it is time to give thanks.  The honor of photographing wonderful brides and grooms and their weddings.  Also give thanks for happy healthy babies.  So like my mom says "count your blessings" and be thankful for them.

Engagement and wedding photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com

Even in the cold you can have fun engagement photos! Sometimes you can't help but brag.  I just have to brag on this wonderful couple.  It was down right freezing and this couple was just great! We arrived at Hurricane Shoals Park at a little after sunrise.  It was the first cold day in Georgia.  I could tell that the bride to be was cold but being a real sport.   So since it was cold and it is always fun to incorporate props in to a shoot.  So I thought a lets keep these people warm!  So we got a blanket out of the car.  So really all you need is a blanket and two people in love and you have a warm and happy couple!  The photos speak for their selves they are two people in love.  The blanket is a symbol of warmth and comfort between two people in love.  It brought the couple together and you can tell by they look into each others eyes that they are a awesome couple!

Dr. Who Wedding! in honor of the new Doctor

As a Atlanta wedding photographer I have the honor of doing some very unique weddings.  On one occasion it was a Dr. Who themed wedding.  I am including a detail of the bouquet.  If you are looking at and wondering what it is, it is a sonic screw driver!  This was such a fun wedding.  I just love it when a bride and groom make such a bold statement and have fun at their wedding!  Because that is what it is all about!  Having fun at your wedding!

So in honor the new Dr.Who series coming out this Saturday on BBC America I am posting some more photos from the Doctor Who wedding!  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Dr. Who and the Tradis Wedding Cake Topper by atlantaartisticweddings


Hi folks! In case you didn't know I am a huge Dr. Who fan!  I have been watching it since Tom Baker and his companions.  Last year I meet a wonderful couple and one of the first questions they had for me was "do you like Dr. Who?".  Right then I knew this was going to be a awesome wedding!  They had a Doctor Who themed wedding.  The bouquet was a sonic screw driver, the topper on the cake was a Tardis and they had Jelly Babies for snacks!!! It was one of my favorite weddings ever!
So in honor the new Dr.Who series coming out this Saturday on BBC America I am posting some more photos from the Doctor Who wedding!  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Atlanta Wedding Photographer | Georgia Mountians Wedding


As a Atlanta wedding photographer I love the diversity that area can give you.  I recently shot a wedding at Big Canoe in the north Georgia mountains.  The area is absolutely stunning!  It has a huge golf course nestled in the middle of the mountains.  All  of this makes for a beautiful setting for photography.  Then you add a gorgeous wedding and you have some great photos. On the wedding day the bride wore a slight mermaid cut wedding dress with just the perfect length train for the dress.   It was very tastful and reflected her personalty perfectly. 

I can't say enough nice things about this wonderful couple.  From the first time I met them, I could tell they were just so thoughtful to each other.  They had such a great families and were so generious and gracious to all. 

I am sharing their exit picture with you.   I love the exit photos!  That way you get to see all the guest have fun sending them off.  I picked this picture in particlar for a couple of reasons.  One I love the lighting from the trees it gave such a warm feeling.  The second is just so random!  I just love the guy to the right in this photo.  I did not ask him to do this but him looking at the camera with that expression and pointing at the camera is just perfect!

Atlanta Wedding Photographer | Great Military Couple! Engagement Photography at Piedmont Park Atlanta

Military Wedding by Atlanta Artistic Weddings at Piedmont Park Atlanta
Hello and thank you so much for dropping by my blog.  Where I share my experiences with shooting weddings in Atlanta.  Recently I had the honor of shooting a military couple.  I let me say they were great!  They found me online and we skyped our meetings so when they came in to town for their engagement shot I felt like I already knew them.  We meet at Piedmont Park at 8am.  I love working in the morning and especially at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.  If you get there early no one is around. You get to run all over the park and no one feels self conscious.  It is a great experience I suggest you try. As you can see the sun is still low in the horizon and gives off some great light.  I can't say thank you enough for the this couple they were great!

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.

Wedding Photography at Night

Hello everyone! This Atlanta Wedding Photographer has been very busy! I have been teaching at Emory in the evenings and getting geared up for all the weddings in May.  I wanted to share with you one of my favorite time of the days to shoot.  It is right after sunset and the sky turns blue.  I recently took a photo at that time of day and wanted to share it with everyone.  The bride wanted to use the lighting from the Gazebo for her wedding.  As you can see the timing and the light made for a wonderful and dramatic photo.   I hope that you enjoy the photo as much as I enjoyed taking it.

Historic Wedding Location in Atlanta the Marianna aka Victor H. Kriegshaber House

Courtesy of www.themarianna.com
Spring is in the air and so are weddings.  As you know I like to sing the praises of people that I like.  I am also a big fan of historic architecture.  Recently Ema from the Marianna asked me to come by and check out the wedding facility the Marianna.  It is a wonderful venue!!! You can see the website at: http://www.themarianna.com/

I have always loved this place since I first saw it.  I checked out a long time ago during the renovation period. I can tell the current owners have a deep appreciation of the historic architecture they have.   If you do any research on the venue you can search by the historic name Victor H. Kriegshaber House.  It is on the National Registrar of Historic Places and listed on several websites.  It has been a land mark in Atlanta since the early 1900's.
Come on by and say hello to Ema.  Take a tour of the facility and you will be happy you did.

Add a little Class to Your Wedding

When I come across a vendor that I like I like to share it with my clients.  If you alive music to the wedding you can add the element of class to your wedding.  Especially if you use these classy musicians.  There is something special about adding a string trio to your wedding. One more bonus to having a live musician at your wedding that they can easily be available to adjust to your programs timing.  That is a good thing since we all know that sometimes a wedding can run a little behind schedule.

There is something to be said  about live music and how much it adds to your wedding.

Here is a link to their site:

Emory Continuing Education


Emory Continuing Education Class on Location at photo shoot
Emory Continuing Education Class on Location at photo shoot

I want to share with you what we have been doing lately.  I have the honor of being a photography instructor at Emory’s continuing education program.  Let me tell you I have a great class of talented photographers.  They are getting toward the end of the of the program and are really shining!  They are some of the most inspiring individuals that I ever had the honor of working with.  We gone through several classes and concentrated on different aspects of photography.
This month I took the class to a photography studio in downtown Atlanta.  We had access to several backdrops and different sources of lighting.  I was amazed at how each photographer brought their own voice to the shoot.  Our model was Kristi .   I can’t say enough nice things about her! She brought her “A” game and was just down right fun!
Here are links to the photographers at the shoot.  Please take the time to view some beautiful photography.
