I had an amazing photo session with these two lovebirds yesterday! Not only are they are drop-dead-gorgeous couple but also so sweet and FUN! I couldn’t help but include some of our funny outtakes amongst the pretty shots. It was extremely difficult to narrow it down to just a few because they were honestly all fabulous so forgive me for the length of this post :)

The setting is Hotel Palomar, one of my favorites in midtown Atlanta. Their modern yet inviting decor is breathtaking and the staff is top notch. This would be my choice of wedding venue if I were getting married in the city today; an intimate yet sophisticated retreat. The Hotel Palomar can accomodate up to 500 guests for cocktails and 370 for dinner. Catering is provided by their own Pacci Ristorante, which produces mouth-watering american and italian cuisine elegantly presented. For more information about having your wedding at this to-die-for venue please click on this link.

The exquisite gown is a Jasmine Haute Couture creation courtesy of Etain Bridal Boutique located in Ashley Park in Newnan. Etain offers a large and varied collection of designer bridal gowns in the South Atlanta area, but most important of all, they are NICE :) and down to earth. The ladies at Etain are committed to providing a personalized experience in finding and purchasing the most important gown you’ll ever wear. They also offer upscale mother of the bride, bridal party, and prom gowns.

Now on to my faves from yesterday:

Don’t quite remember what started this…

Soooo romantic…

This one makes me smile~

We are currently booking weddings for 2011 and 2012.  Give us a call to check availability and schedule your complimentary consultation. To view more bridal images please visit our wedding portfolio.

I love kids. I remember being in such a rush to grow up and now I long for the freedom of being a child. We think we’ll be free when we reach adulthood but little do we know that childhood is true freedom. I wish I could get that message across to my kids: enjoy that feeling of complete adventure and spontaineity that you have right now, absorb every minute of your innocence, but I sound like an adult when I say those things.

It took about a millisecond to convince these kids to lay on the grass and roll down the slope of their backyard; their parents are probably going to remember me for a long time thanks to my little idea. :)  If I could postpone twilight and hadn’t had 20 lbs. of photographic equipment on me, I would have rolled down the hill with them (again, adult thinking). In retrospect, I wish I would have and then their parents would remember me for a long time as a complete lunatic.

These kids have the most amazing personalities; we hit it off right away and although I didn’t roll down the hill with them we did hold hands and skipped down the road together. Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon.

Noah’s first birthday is this month and we celebrated this important milestone with a photo session to capture what being one is all about. He is walking and exploring everything around him with curiosity and glee, from the local playground to the crunchy fallen leaves in his front yard, Noah and I had a blast playing. Here are a few of my favorites:

I met with this gorgeous couple this afternoon for a shoot to document their love. They have been together since high school and going strong. The friendship they share is evident; they can’t stop grinning and laughing with each other. We had a great time together. Thank you guys for choosing me as your photographer. Enjoy your glimpse of our session.

A sweet moment…

Jennifer, you are GORGEOUS! :)

I had the pleasure of documenting the engagement of this beautiful couple this evening. We had lots of fun together. They have the kind of sarcastic sense of humor that I am oh so familiar with, so we hit it off right away and I feel like we’ve been friends forever.

Congratulations on your engagement! Enjoy your sneak peak!

And last but not least… the Zoolander shot… I told you I would get it out of you :) Great job guys!
