Roshni & Parth | Charlotte North Carolina Indian Wedding | Ceremony and Reception

Back to Day 2 - Sangeet

Day 3 started early. Roshni was up before dawn getting her hair and makeup done and we headed out into the streets of Downtown Charlotte just after sunrise for photos. We were able to capture some fog covering the tops of the buildings and we took advantage of the empty streets for portraits.

Shortly after, the grooms Baraat lead his family down the sidewalks of Charlotte. Parth rode a beautiful horse named Elvis, and part of the parade was lead by bagpipe players. It was a a fun mix of cultures!

Once at the Hilton, the brides family welcomed the groom and his family and we went inside for the start of the ceremony. It ended with the bride and groom leaving in a gorgeous Audi convertible. Later that night was a beautiful reception with dancing, heartfelt speeches and fun!

Roshni & Parth | Charlotte, NC Indian Wedding | Part 1 -Mehndi

We were so excited for the opportunity to photograph Roshni and Parth’s 3 days of wedding events in Charlotte, North Carolina. The weddings and events took place the first week of July, so the Mehndi party fell on the 4th of July. It was a hot but beautiful day at the family home in Mooresville, NC and Roshni’s family was so welcoming. The afternoon consisted of food, laughter and of course the mehndi itself.

Mohit & Nikita | Foxhall Resort Wedding | Atlanta Indian Wedding

We were so excited when Mohit and Nikita contacted us for their wedding at Foxhall Resort as it’s one of our favorite venues around Atlanta. The sprawling estate of 1100 acres of Georgia countryside makes for the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

Prior to their wedding, we did a fun (yet cold) engagement session among the fall foliage at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.

Nathan and I arrived early in the day while a layer of fog was still settled over the resort. We were able to get out and get a few photos of the lovely couple in the fog which made for some stunning portraits. The creams and reds of their wedding attire against the monochromatic foggy background was just perfect!

The day seemed to fly by, with a fun Baraat leading into a lovely ceremony. Take a look below and the stunning couple and their beautiful wedding!

Cierra & Sean | Historic Dekalb Courthouse Wedding

Cierra and Sean are one of those couples where you can just TELL how perfect they are for one another. They came to me after their original photographer cancelled and had tons of questions, which I LOVE. I want our clients to feel confident in our abilities so I am happy to sit an answer any and all questions they may have. Once they booked, we had a fun engagement session in Downtown Atlanta, which ended up being published in Black Nuptials. 

Their wedding day finally came and it ended up being a lovely day! Getting ready took place at Cierras beautiful apartment in Midtown, and Sean got ready at his brothers place across the street. Their gorgeous places made me miss living in the city! 

Now, I love capturing emotion. And when it came time for Seans present to Cierra, there was not a dry eye in the room. He wrote her a letter, which one of her bridesmaids read, in which he told her he had paid off all her student loans so they could start their marriage debt free. WOW! That moment will stay with me for years to come as one of my favorite gifts a groom has gotten a bride on their wedding day. 

The rest of the day was perfect. Cierras bridesmaids didn't make her lift a finger (which is how it should be)! And every moment was filled with happy emotions from everyone. The reception, which was designed by the super talented Niq Williams Events, was gorgeous. And Sean and his groomsmen even did a stellar performance to Bruno Mars "Finesse" before he took off her garter. 

Congratulations again you two! And thank you for letting us capture your day.

Laura & Glenn | The Engine Room

rose gold wedding invitation.jpg

Laura and Glenn had a beautiful wedding at The Engine Room in Monroe, GA. This venue is such a wonderful space, with the exposed brick and big windows. Laura loves sparkly things so the beautiful sequin rose gold table covers were such a fun and nice splash of color and sparkle to the space. And her dress was simply stunning. The detail in the back was beyond impressive! And of course, Glenn looked great in his dark blue suit. They ended the night with a bubble exit that turned out perfect!

It was such a fun day and we are so thankful Laura and Glenn for having us capture their special day. We wish the two of you the absolute best in your lives together!

CaylaRae & Ryan | The Engine Room in Monroe, GA

floral wedding invite.jpg

When Cayla contacted us about her wedding, we realized we had a few mutual friends. She hired us on one of our few dates still open for the spring, as her wedding was only a couple months out. We soon learned she had planned her entire wedding in only a few months, and WOW did they do a great job! Every detail was thought out and perfectly executed. If she ever decides to leave her current career, I definitely think she should go in to wedding planning ;)

The day of their wedding, the forecast showed rain all day. 2018 so far has felt like nothing BUT rain. Every. single. weekend. But, we got some spells where the rain stopped and were able to get some portraits done outside. And guys...they had a TACO BAR. And it was GOOD. 

Congrats again to Cayla and Ryan! We wish you the best in your lives together and thank you for having us capture your special day.

Kristina and Sean | A Krog Street Tunnel + Jackson Street Bridge Engagement

From the moment I met Kristina I knew I was going to LOVE working with her. We had a great talk at our first meeting and she told me how Sean proposed and about his love for sneakers. She told me Sean had an idea to do their engagement photos at Krog Street Tunnel and I lit up. I had been wanting to do a shoot there for YEARS, but just never had the opportunity. 

For those who aren't familiar with Atlanta or Krog Street Tunnel, it's a tunnel on...you guessed it...Krog Street. What makes it unique is that it is FULL of graffiti and street art, and is always changing. Right down the street from the tunnel is the newer Krog Street Market, which is full of fun and unique food fair and a couple shops. The surrounding area is known as Cabbagetown and is full of street art and cute, older bungalow houses. It's such a fun area for artists and photographers. 

Anyway, back to Kristina and Sean. They were seriously SO much fun. Very natural in front of the camera and both have great smiles. We finished the session at the famous Jackson Street Bridge that overlooks downtown Atlanta.

We can't wait for their wedding at Little Gardens later this year!

LaShundra and Eddie | Primrose Cottage Wedding

Is it really already 2018? I know it's already March, but it's still hard to believe some days that it's 2018. Time really does fly. 

We had our first wedding of the year this past Sunday and it was simply lovely! It took place at Primrose Cottage in Roswell, which is a historic house turned venue right in Downtown Roswell.  It was our first time shooting there and we hope to be able to go back one day!

While it rained all day, it didn't spoil the day. The ceremony and reception took place inside and was adorned in the 2018 Pantone color of the year, Ultra Violet! There were lots of tears of joy and sweet moments during the day.
