Arabia Mountain Hike

I’m always on the hunt for good locations that aren’t too far away, and that aren’t too over-used.

Arabia Mountain has been on my list for a while now and yesterday I used my charm and wit (and maybe some pleading) and convinced Michael to pack up the dogs and camera and drive out there.

If you get a sunset, it’s pretty magical.

Matt + Jeri | Lullwater Park Engagement

Had fun with these two on Saturday. We started off at their Loft, and then headed to Lullwater Park to walk around the woods  :-)

Can’t wait for their North GA wedding next month. Until then, enjoy some of my favorites.

Photo Field Trip // El Capitan Canyon

I’m trying to find the words to describe Photo Field Trip. I still haven’t had much time to reflect on the whole experience, so my words are failing me as I type this.

It was so amazing to get to learn from some of my favorite photographers: Dan O’Day, Sean Flanigan, Max Wanger, Samm Blake, Benj Haisch (just to name a few!)…and it was even more amazing to do it surrounded by 300 other photographers. Though it rained most of the weekend, that didn’t stop me (or any of us) from taking in the beauty that surrounded us at El Capitan Canyon.

Being that this was their 1st Field Trip…and it was simultaneously my 1st “workshop” experience, I wasn’t sure what to expect. And even though I didn’t really have specific expectations, I feel as though my expectations were exceeded somehow. The photography community as a whole always inspires me, and being there, surrounded by so many eager, inspired, and friendly people just filled me up so much. It was a weekend full of learning, laughter, friendship, encouragement, inspiration…and the best “camp” food ever  😉

To Whitney, Justin & Jess…thank you so much for acting on a simple idea. You made such an impact on so many lives, and I can’t wait for FT2015!

Aaaaaaand…ME. I had to post this because I neverrrrrrr get selfies in focus on my dslr. I always see everyone getting awesome ones and for some reason I’m just terrible at it. Finally nailed one.

The Schultzes

A few weeks ago Michael and I had the opportunity to help out two of our favorite people: The Schultzes.

Since I started in this wonderful crazy world of wedding photography 4 years ago, the Schultzes have been a huge inspiration. They are fun, kind, cute and crazy talented. We helped them with a brand shoot for their launch week which ended today with the BIG REVEAL of their new brand and blogsite.

Go check it out right now and give them some love: www.lovetheschultzes.com

Aren’t they the cutest?!

snowy atlanta

Yessssss. Snow. It’s been too long since I’ve seen you.

I ran around downtown with Morgan Blake for the last hour of light yesterday.

We tried to find higher ground for some aerial shots but we did not succeed.

These images are the consolation.
