It takes a special person to not only have the intelligence to become a medical doctor or a veterinarian, but also have the desire to care for people and animals as well. Stephanie, who is beginning her residency as an emergency room doctor at Emory, and Jonathan who recently completed his education to become a veterinarian have these rare qualities. I was only able to spend a day with them, but that day was enough to see that Jonathan and Stephanie were not only great people, but they are great for each other. It was a pleasure and we wish them luck in Atlanta.
I have been wanting to try out this next photograph for a while. I was pleased with the results.
Stephanie and Jonathan were real troopers. When we arrived at the church Kristin and I noticed this fire escape on the side of a building covered with ivy on the church grounds. Stephanie, high heals and all, with the assistance of Jonathan hiked up the escape. even though they ran into a few gnats up there, the pictures were worth it.
These next few shots remind me of an old mission out West. I think the shot on the right below is my favorite of the day.
Although this is the second time we have photographed the wedding party in a tree, this one was a bit taller than the last. One of the bridesmaids asked if they qualified as one of the most adventurous groups I have shot, and the answer is yes.
I am a huge fan of the cake smash. You only get to do this once, so why not have a ball?
Night shots are quickly becoming my favorite thing to shoot. It is certainly tricky, but I love it. It is not possible with every reception venue or schedule, but when it is right it is a great addition to the day.
