Heather & Brian - A Glendalough Manor Wedding

Heather & Brian got married a couple of weeks ago just south of Atlanta, at Glendalough Manor.
It was a gorgeous Spring day for their beautiful outdoors ceremony.

This couple has been super relaxed and easy going to work with. They trusted us and believed in our work and we feel very grateful for that.

As usual, I could go on and on about how we love what we do and how much fun we have while doing it, but you all know by now that words are not my strong suit, so why even try... especially when you have this gorgeous bride :-)

I love this moment when dad sees daughter for the first time...

The groom looked great and was super happy too.

Heather getting emotional during their vows...

One of my favorite images of the newlyweds.

A super cute moment during the first dance captured by Casey, who collaborated with us that day.

And a moment from the very entertaining mother-son dance.

You can see more going to their Wedding Slideshow.

Thank you to Heather & Brian for letting us share this day. We are very honored to have been invited to capture these memories and we hope you'll treasure them forever.

All the best to both of you!

Mini Me

A few weeks ago we were working at a wedding and met this little young lady that seemed to have a total love affair with photography --and the photographers!

It all started when I spotted her playing with the disposable cameras they had on the tables and took her picture.

She saw me grab the camera and she grabbed hers and did the same thing I did. See how she is holding her camera in vertical position, just like me!

After that she apparently started following me everywhere and mimicking what I did.

It took me a little while to figure it out, but after bumping into her here and there it dawned on me and I could not stop laughing. Rich saw her too and took a quick snap...

* See the position of the feet, similar to mine.

After following me for a while she decided it was time to "work with Rich".

* See how both photographers are standing (and check position of the feet again!)

Now see how mini-me does exactly what Rich does :)

See her checking out what the "big photographer" is doing?

Too funny... she followed us for quite a long time. I would die to see some of the pictures she got!

She was a total ham and we got into conversation several times also. Dad said she really loves to play with the camera all the time, so she seems to be pretty serious about it!

What can I say, she made our day!

Danielle & Stuart's Atlanta Wedding

I met Danielle a couple of years ago when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding we photographer. I immediately fell in love with her sparkly and fun personality and was thrilled when she called us to book her own wedding photography with us!

She and Stuart got married a few weeks ago at Villa Christina in Atlanta, GA. Danielle not only looked gorgeous, she looked so happy. And Stuart was looking handsome as usual and was very emotional too.

The ceremony was outside in the garden and the cocktail hour was in the patio downstairs. They had an acoustic guitar player and two men hand rolling cigars for the guests.

The reception looked beautiful, with flowers designed by Tulip and lots of wonderful details most of which were done by Danielle and her mother.

It was a beautiful event but the icing on the cake was truly the exit. They had a New Orleans style second line parade, with parasols and handkerchiefs that people waved around as they walked down towards the fabulous red card awaiting them downstairs, dancing to the tune of "When The Saints Go Marching In". Fabulous and really fun!

Check out some of their images, and look for the link to their slideshow below.

I loved the cascading bouquet.

Guests blew bubbles as the bride & groom walked out after the ceremony.

Hot, hot, hot couple :)

Stuart and his "cigar buddies".

I always love the romanticism of the first dance!

Later in the evening Danielle changed into a sassy short dress.

Loved the red 1949 Mercury that they used to get away.

This is the fabulous exit!

What can I say, we love what we do and enjoy every minute of it.
Thanks Danielle & Stuart!

Welcome Lewis!

After Jill's maternity session earlier this year, Lewis arrived late in February.

I finally got to meet him few days back. He is so cute and I was really impressed with how alert he is at such a young age. Big sisters Isabelle and Alexandra are thrilled with the new baby --well, little 3-year-0ld Allie is thrilled only at times but she does love to hold him and be a real big sister now!--

Check out this adorable baby boy...

I love how tender the next moments captured are...

Big sisters!

Thanks again Jill & Kevin for letting me capture your family memories.

Colleen & Brian - A Spring Wedding in Atlanta

Colleen & Brian got married a few weeks back on a gorgeous Spring day in Atlanta.

The ladies got ready at Three 13 Salon in Marietta and the guys gathered at Transfiguration Catholic Church where the ceremony took place in the early afternoon.

After the ceremony the wedding party and parents took a super fun ride on a trolley to Piedmont Park and made their way across the park to Greystone, where the reception took place.

Here area a few images from their wonderful day.

I loved the bride's shoes. And they were fun too.

An emotional moment when dad sees his daughter for the first time.


Two moments during the ceremony.
This lovely capture by Casey Muse who was assisting us that day.

And the first kiss. Please take a moment to see monsignor's open-mouthed face as the groom was a little "intense" when he kissed his bride (you can click on the image to see it larger :)

The fun ride on the trolley.

...with an unexpected stop at the liquor store!

Strolling down Piedmont Park on the way to Greystone.

And some of my favorite portraits...

I always love the first dance...

A gorgeous terrace for some cigar smoking.

I love this exit image captured by Rich.

It was a wonderful day and you can see the real story in Colleen & Brian's Wedding Slideshow.

Thanks to both of you and your families for allowing you into this time in your lives. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. McElroy!
