Check these Cheat Sheets out::
Flash Units were all Nikon SB900, 800 speed lights
DJ and Bubba says I Do! This was a pretty cool wedding in that most of all the pictures were taken on DJ’s parents property. What a very pretty place they have… everything from a nice big house, to wooden bridges, to nice greenery and even a cool little vineyard. Very nice and inviting family as well… we got luck in that the temperature may have hit 90… if it did we really didn’t feel it much as I always shoot in the shade =). We also dodged the rain, which I knew we would because I have a “65 wedding no rain consecutive streak” going on currently… yeap so all you brides thinking about booking me… HA just more added value on top of some great shots =)…lol. Anyway here are a few shots from the day… enjoy ::
Another great wedding… I shot this one with NRP. Not a lot to say… just let the images do the talking. Quick post on this one… enjoy! ::
Wedding #8 of the season for me and I got to shoot with AGW Photography. The last time that I shot at Roswell Mill was a few years ago and Allyson assited me so I had the opportunity to side shoot with her at her wedding there. This place is a unique venue in that there are a lot of different looks for good photography… everything from old buildings to rivers and waterfalls. A lot of things have changed in Roswell since I last shot there… the Roswellians think very highly of their city property… hence the $100 permit to shoot photography there that you have to have… Luckily Julie had hers… I meant Allyson had hers =). We didn’t get sent to jail thank goodness. The reception was a first for me in that it was pretty crazy (i’ll keep the incriminatory pictures hidden) but I think we counted 7 spilled drinks and 3 broken glasses on the dance floor… you know you have a good reception when that happens… Like always I enjoy side shooting and usually try and get some good stuff… check out some of the shots below ::
Immediately after this next shot below…. i caught some of his Crown and Coke on me and my lens… luckily no harm…whew!
What a great wedding season that I have had thus far and this wedding was no different. A great couple with Sara and Michael… so fun to be around and a very laid back bride and groom. I just finished their wedding pictures like 5 minutes ago from their wedding last week… We got some great shots and the venue was pretty amazing also at Vinings Club in Vinings GA. Thanks to Sergio the Italian security guard (right brides maids =)… for letting us up to the 22nd floor for some great overlook shots of Atlanta. I wish all the best to Sara and Michael… oh and Sara since the wedding is now over… GOOOOOOO DAWGS! SICKEM…. =) Check out some great shots ::
About a year or so I entered a photography package into our local high school booster club charity event… it was auctioned off for a good cause and well this family won the bid… well we have been in contact back and fourth ever since her youngest son was born about a year ago… We finally got to plan a date and shot the session this afternoon and I was looking forward to it. Her boys are so sweet and like any other 1 and 4 year old, mom and dad had bribed them with some ice cream afterwards… yummy! Anyway, dad’s face may seem just a little familiar to a few of you Dawg fans out there… he’s probably one of the greatest QB’s that the NCAA has ever seen and I was a bit star-struck at first, but what a down to earth guy… enjoyed the evening shooting him and his family… Maybe, just maybe I become his go to receiver… i mean photographer =). Check out some of the shots from this afternoon.. ::
Fifty-Nine (59) weddings and counting, no rain outs streak continues!! 70% chance of rain this past Saturday but I wasn’t worried… I’m good luck (hint hint for all you future , outdoor wedding brides … Anyway meet Abbey and Matt, you may remember them from our engagement session back in February (here). I could tell by shooting these two then that we were going to get some great pictures on their wedding day, Just so happened that this is my 200th blog post (yay!) AND one of my most favorite weddings shots that i have taken to date would come from this wedding… checkout a few shots from the day and see if you can pick my favorite =) ::
One of my newly favorite venues to shoot at is the Carl House located in Auburn, GA… I have shot there in the summer, spring, fall and winter and no matter what time of the year it is… It is quite the photographers paradise! I have a few booked there this year of my own, but this past weekend I had the privilege to shoot under Neal Reeves at this wonderful venue. Each time I shoot there i seem to find a new angle, a new lighting shot and just new ideas in general… I can’t wait for my others scheduled there this coming year…. here are a few shots from this weekend… ::
“March comes in like a Lion”… isn’t that the saying or at least something close to that?… Well if it is referring to the wind, this past Sunday’s engagement shoot was a very windy proof of it. Abbey and Matt did great even though it was cold and windy. We shot in downtown Buford which is a haven for photographers and even this day only one other braved the elements that I saw. Anyway we got a lot of great shots… here are a few of my favorites ::
always got to show off the heels!
” Hi, I am Kale Corbett. My parents are Tim and Brandy Corbett and I have a sister, Katy Rose. I am in the 4th grade at Jefferson Academy. I love to play football, basketball, and run track. One day, I began to feel so tired that I couldn’t even play during my football game. That isn’t like me so my mom and dad took me to the doctor. After lots of tests, they said I had leukemia. It is a rare type of ALL.” -Kale
Meet Kale Corbett… that is Kale’s story. I just recently met Kale this past Monday, I have always known his mom, his uncle and just most recently shot his aunt’s engagement session…. a great and very close nit family! A very competitive gene pool there and Kale has seemed to gained it honestly as he jumped right out of the car with a football in hand throwing hailmary passes to his sister Katy and diving on the ground to catch passes (momma wasn’t crazy about him getting dirty, but it was a good catch!). Kale has been diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia… and has since under went a few chemo treatments, but I tell you what you would have never known it do to this guys spunk and good attitude! The GREAT news is they have a bone marrow donor and they were officially cleared for transplant! I have been keeping up with Kale here at his webpage. You can tell God is truly working in and around this little guys life and family. If you care to help Kale out in anyway you can start by stopping by his donations page. Kale we’ll photograph you again in a few months and you can show me how to throw one of those hailmary passes!
Here are a few shots of Kale and his family :
Below is Kale looking for a hawk…. love the concentration =)
Good Luck Kale…. we’re praying for you and your family and we’ll see you guys in a few short months…
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and a good New Year’s! It’s been awhile since I had a post ( i know i know… i’m a slacker =)….! Soooo my 2012 is off to a great start already…. I have already booked more weddings than I have in previous years and my side shooting gigs are plentiful as well… This wedding hear was the first one of the year to get the ice broken on 2012. I was a side shooter on this one with NRP Photography. It was a Catholic wedding which I always find interesting to shoot as we don’t see many of those here in the sticks…lol. The reception was at a really cool location “103 West“. After the wedding we toured around the block and shot a few city scene pictures…. here are a few from the day ::
I was privileged this past Sunday to shoot a great couple for their engagement pictures. Wade and Beanna… I met Wade the day of the shoot… really nice and down to earth guy… and Breanna… I have known of her ever since she was really little…. I went to school with her older brother and sister… watched her sis drain 3′s when I was a freshman in high school and I played a lot… I mean a lot of basketball with her brother while coming thru high school… great family and a good gene pool… whats your secrete Frankie? =). Anyway this was a great shoot… other than being a lil cool… okay a lot cool / very cold we still got a lot of great shots. Here are some shots from the session… sorry for so many but I couldn’t really narrow it down to just a few ::

Amanda and Kevin… what a great session for a really cool couple! Amanda booked me for their upcoming wedding this February. Well obviously we shot their engagement session this past Sunday. I always like it when my clients have the cool ideas… and all I have to do is set it up and make it happen. That’s pretty much how this session went… Amanda had some really neat ideas and we got some really great shots because of them…. here is a sneak peek from the engagement session ::
What a great way to end a GREAT 2011 wedding season! This Trash the Dress Session was actually purchased in Andi’s initial wedding package (thats right… she aint skeered!). Andi and Thomas were one of my favorite weddings from this past year… remember this one (click here). These sessions are always fun and creative… plus Andi had been studying up on how work this session. Andi is a fun bubbly gal with a very contagious smile… well this session her evil twin came out and threw on us some attitude… it was a good juxtapose to the normal Andi =). So with out any further delay… check out some shots from the session ::
When I’m not shooting my own weddings… I LOVE to side shoot with other photographers, especially destination weddings. I was contracted by AGW Photography to side shoot this one! This wedding was great on several layers… it was my last of this year 2011, it was a destination wedding in Augusta GA at Perry’s Landing, and they were such a cool couple shoot. I’m glad I was asked to help out with this wedding… it was a blast! Anyway here are a few shots from that day… yay 2011! ::
An old friend of mine from years past (about 12 to be exact) just recently had a new start with her wonderful wedding on October 21st. Ellwyn got married at The Carl House in Auburn GA. I have had the privileged of shooting there once before and I have several booked there already in 2012… great venue and a great staff. Anyway Ellwyn contacted me sometime ago about shooting her wedding… needless to say I was excited because I had lost touch with her as she moved around the countryside. Living out in TX they were headed back this way to get married and well we booked it and made it happen. This was my last official wedding of the year, as I have one more to go that I am side shooting this month… It’s been a great wedding year and here are some great pictures from Ellwyn’s special day ::
So this is one of the bridals that I could not wait to post… so I actually wrote this exactly a week before the wedding… well the wedding has been over for a matter of hours now and I finally get to post. These pictures are great and I can not wait to get the wedding done to post it as well… This bridal was shot at the beautiful Staghorn Chapel in Nicholson GA. anyway I’ll cut this short and get to the pictures because I’m pretty sure that I’m still tired from shooting this wedding that technically has happened yet as I type this… okay so now I’m really confused, but here goes ::
I shoot a limited number of children sessions each year and I have had the privilege of capturing some cute kids, BUT this lil angel from my last shoot is an absolute doll. This little girl was a joy to shoot and she was so funny and explorative (probably not a word but it is to me now..lol). She was checking out all kinds of things but still gave us those great moments in between. She reminds me of a baby doll with her big greene eyes. Check out some of these sneak peeks ::
Well the time had finally came… time for part 3 of Ms. Ashley’s Trash the Dress (TTD) session. This was originally supposed to be done last Sept , but after a few reschedules later… here we are and boy was it worth it! I have been looking forward to this water session for awhile. We have previously shot the Country/Urban session and the Junkyard session and now the infamous water session! (OH YEAH… anybody thinking of doing this but is a little timid of ruining their dress… guess what… after all of these session I am taking her dress and getting it dry cleaned and it will be as good as new….. so seeeeee you don’t have to ruin it to Rock It.) Anyway…. I had this place in mind since day one of shooting a few of my buddies fishing here some 4 years ago. Ashley and her mom jumped in the ol truck with me and off we went. After an hour or better ride and some misdirections from TomTom and Casey… thanks bud, we had finally arrived…. well I’m not sure what else I can say other than this was a FUN shoot not only for me but I think for Ashley as well…. The water was pretty frigid still but like a champ she had her game face on…. I’ll hush now and let you see.
For booking information on a Trash the Dress or a Rock the Dress… please contact me at email@example.com or 706.296.5634.
Soooo NOW I can post the real deal. Carley and Brandon are officially hitched and documented. Since day one Carley trusted me with the direction to and creativity for her pictures. I strongly convinced her to do a “First Look” and she accepted and it was great… just ask her about it! We did the first look on north campus at the University of Georgia and their wedding reception was at the Commerce Civic Center. Well… there isn’t much more I can say about this wonderful couple that I haven’t already said in their previous two post (engagement and bridal). But I would like to thank them for letting me be a part of their special day… Thanks Guys! Check a few pictures from the big day!
Got a phone call about 2 months ago from Mr. Poole… he had just been recently married at Hurricane Shoals Park and was looking on Google images and some of mine just happened to pop up (thank you blog =)… well he wanted my TTD aka Trash the Dress… services! I was delighted of course because these are one of my most favorite type of sessions to shoot… We corresponded a few times via email and he showed me some ideas of what him and Brandi were thinking…. and well as soon as I saw fire as one of the examples… Scott got all excited about this shoot (yes I just spoke in 3rd person!). Brandi and Josh put back on there wedding attire from that special day in March…. and we did a little ‘trashing”. The session worked out good with the old junk cars as it went with what was kind of a “rocking 40′s and 50′s look”. Here are some of the shots from the Poole’s Trash the Dress:
So Carley the day is here… obviously I have written this post before your wedding date, but I know you would kill me if I posted before hand so I won’t! Anyway for those of you guys out there… like I mentioned before in Carley and Brandon’s engagement session… she told me some 3 years ago that I was going to shoot her wedding and well I am either shooting it today on 5/21 or I have shot it yesterday b/c this is the Sunday after…. WELL now that we are all confused, here are a few pics from Carley’s bridals that we took two weeks prior to her wedding date…. she may call them bridals but I am putting these under my “Rock the Dress” category… way to go Carley =)… PS- she took a few special ones for her new husband the football coach, see if you can spot them! (had fun shooting the wedding tonight)
So I put I a call out about two weeks ago for a FREE trash the dress session for any takers that were willing. I got a lot of inquiries about it but only really a couple of serious ones. Ladies and gentlemen meet Jessica and Shelli from Augusta and Atlanta GA! These two ladies had no prior modeling experience as none was needed for this session…. just a dress and creative freedom. I had planned on shooting rain or shine… luckily it was sunny but for the lovely models it was extremely cold this past Sunday. I really want to thank them for hanging in there even while their teeth were chattering =). I think the coolest part of the shoot was the “Rat Rod” (A rat rod is simply a custom car that is made for driving and hanging out with friends. Rat rods aren’t ultra glossy show cars. Instead a rat rod is a “unfinished” street rod that is intentionally left a bit rough around the edges.)… anyway we were headed to a location, walking across the street when we heard this loud noise approaching quickly… well blowing by us in a very unique looking car was Ben. We started yelling and whistling and finally got Ben’s attention and waved him back… I asked if we could shoot with his car and he gladly let us. It was a very cool car and fit the shoot well. Also Ben says the car is for sale and he built it from parts himself. Here are some shots from the session…. Enjoy!
