Lookout Mountain Wedding: Part II

Here is the second set of photos from the wedding I shot in Lookout Mountain with Melody Hood. If you didn't see the first post earlier this week, make sure you check out Part I, too!


Wednesday Flashback: A New Series

I started this blog a little over a year ago- on June 8, 2008 to be exact. But I starting doing photography long before I started my blog. So, as a result, I have decided to start a weekly series in which I will be sharing some of my earlier work from my pre-blogging days. This includes film, digital, personal work, professional work, old school assignments and everything else I can find.

I figured it would only be appropriate to begin my Flashback Series with a photo from the very first roll of black and white film I printed in the darkroom back in 2001. I had just learned the basics of how to shoot on an old film camera that only had an all-manual mode, how adjust my aperture and shutter speed settings, and how to meter for the proper light exposure. And I set off with 36 frames to try to get it right. Even though I didn't know much back then, I am happy with how most of the photos on that first roll of film turned out.

Here is one of my favorites:

Lookout Mountain Wedding: Part I

A few weeks ago I traveled up to Chattanooga, TN to shoot a wedding with Melody Hood of Innamorata Photography. I love visiting new places and as it was my first time in Chattanooga, I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to see a new city on the way to the wedding.

The wedding was held at the gorgeous Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church.

Did I mention the church was gorgeous?

A sweet moment just after the wedding...

Onto the reception...

Between the games and swing-set outside, all the kids had a blast!

Thanks again to Melody for asking me to shoot this wedding with her! I will be posting more from this wedding in a few days, so check back for Part II.


Fun With Rings, Flashes and a Macro Lens

I love getting together with other Atlanta photographers and just shooting for fun. At this month's Beyond the Shoot get-together, I played around with different lighting while using the 100mm f/2.8 macro lens to take some shots of rings and different textures. It was great hanging out with other photographers and sharing ideas.

Here are a few fun ring shots:

Jessica and Danny: Engaged!

As soon as Jessica and Danny got out the car for their engagement session, it started pouring! We took cover, trying to decide if we should head out with umbrellas, reschedule or try to wait out the rain. Luckily we didn't have to wait long before the sun was shining again. By the time we starting shooting, the skies were beautiful, as it it haven't even rained at all. It couldn't have worked out better!

Jessica and Danny are so cute together and compliment each other perfectly- just being around them made the session extra fun! They met through mutual friends while playing on a kickball team together and got engaged about a month ago. Here are some of my favorite photos from their mini session:

I love all the different color walls in Marietta Square. They make for such fun backgrounds for photos!

I love this one!

And this one, too... it's so hard to decide which is my favorite!


Adventures Out on the Golf Course

A few weeks ago when we were at my parent's house in Columbia, Mark suggested I come out on the golf course with him and take some photos. I might not play golf yet (except for mini golf!), but riding around in the golf cart? That sounded like fun to me!

Here are a few of my photos from my evening out on the golf course:

As you can see it was a little late and then sun was setting as Mark was finishing out on the 18th hole. As soon as we arrived at my parents' house, we dropped off our bags and went straight to the golf course. I think we were the last people out there that night.

Here's a few of Mark in action:
