This week's Flashback Photo is a black and white film photo taken in Paris during the summer of 2001. Like the first photo I shared in this series, this is another one of my earlier photos shot with black and white film on an SLR camera.
What I love about this photo are the interesting lines in the street and the motion of the people walking on the left side of the frame.
I had a great time photographing Rebecca and Scott's engagement photos last night. They picked an awesome location for their session that involved taking a little hike to get to, but it was definitely worth a little extra walking! And to make it even better, they brought along their two adorable dogs, so they could be included in a few of the photos, too.
Here is a little preview for Rebecca and Scott. More photos will be up in a few days!
My friend Katrina of Katrina Wheeler Photography asked me to come along with her to shoot a wedding at the Gwinett County Courthouse last Tuesday morning, and I am so glad I did! It was a really sweet and intimate wedding. The only guest was their son adorable son Vinny.
This week's Flashback photo was a class assignment for a digital photography course I took during my senior year of college. The assignment was to take a advertising product photo of an alcohol bottle.
I chose to photograph this bottle of 1800 Tequila because I really loved the look and shape of the bottle, especially the top. I lit the bottle under green lighting. I adjusted the angle, focus and lighting in the two photos to emphasize different aspects of the bottle.

A couple weeks ago I shot this bridal session of two awesome models at the Glendalough Manor with my friend Katrina. The Glendalough Manor is an absolutely gorgeous venue in Tyrone, GA that I would definitely recommend checking out if you are still looking for a location for your wedding.
Diamandi and Antoine were such great models that were so much fun to photograph. I couldn't have asked for a better session! Here are a few of my favorites, beginning with some shots of Diamandi getting ready in the bridal room. Diamandi had her make-up done by Angelique Dozier.
During the summer of 2006, I attended the Maine Photographic Workshops in Rockport, ME. At the workshop, I took a week long course on Digital Photojournalism given by a National Geographic photographer. During the course, I learned a lot about storytelling and putting together a magazine-style photo story.
This week's Flashback Photo was not a part of my story project for the week, but it is a great reminder of my week in Maine. I was up shooting a sunset two days during the course, and I shot the photo on the second early morning.
This week's Flashback photo is of ballet dancers from the South Carolina Summer Dance Conservatory performing at Drayton Hall in Columbia, SC.
I took this photo during August 2006 on an assignment for The Gamecock. Taking photos of a ballet was so fun and intriguing because of all the beautiful lights, costumes and choreography. There were many interesting photos to choose from, but this is my personal favorite and the one that was published for the article.
On Friday night I had the honor of photographing Kevin's homecoming after a year long deployment in Iraq. His fiance Jackie contacted me last month about doing an OpLove homecoming session for them, and on Friday, Jackie let me know that Kevin's flight would be getting into the Atlanta airport that night. Here are a few photos of their reunion:
Waiting at the airport...
