Four Seasons Host the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce

The folks at the Four Seasons pulled out all the stops, including my favorite--frozen s'mores--for the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce membership drive.

Here are a few of our favorite photographs from the evening.

Documentary Photo Project about the Gwinnett Heat

The Gwinnett Heat basketball team rocks. Last year they advanced to the 2016 wheelchair basketball Georgia state championship game. This year they hope to bring home the first place trophy.

The team practices once a week at Hull Middle School in Duluth.

Here are a few favorites from their first practice.

Best Wedding Photographs 2016: The In-Between Moments

A documentary photographer at heart, I have always been attracted to the in-between moments. The moments that would never make it on to a list of must-have photographs.

The must-have photographs are ... yes, you said it ... must haves. A bride (or brides, or groom/s) coming down the aisle, the exchange of the rings, the kiss, the happy couple exiting the ceremony, the first dance, the parent dances, the toasts, the cake-cutting, the exit.

But there is so much more to the wedding day. As a photojournalist, I find the challenge of photographing a wedding is capturing moments that tell the story of the day that would have been forgotten, if I had not been there with my camera.

Here are a few of my favorites.

 Tim and Vanessa Wedding at Emory Presbyterian Church and Trolley Barn
 Kim and Shelby's Wedding at Avondale Estates Clubhouse
 Alex Shoaff and Esther Albrecht Wedding at The Ridges Resort in Hiawassee
 Ashley and David's Ellijay Mountain Wedding
 Kim and Shelby's Wedding at Avondale Estates Clubhouse
 Tim and Vanessa Wedding at Emory Presbyterian Church and Trolley Barn

Favorite Wedding Photographs 2016: Ceremony

The heart of a wedding day is the ceremony. I love a good wedding ceremony.

Recently I listened to a photographer talk about how monotonous wedding ceremonies can be. I totally disagree. Every ceremony I've attended has had its own essence. And every couple responds to the solemnity of the service differently.

Sometimes the ring doesn't fit ... or doesn't seem to fit ... or maybe somebody just makes it seem like it doesn't fit.

 Tim and Vanessa Wedding at Emory Presbyterian Church and Trolley Barn

Sometimes the kiss is delicate.

 Kim and Shelby's Wedding at Avondale Estates Clubhouse

Sometimes the ring goes on without a hitch.

 Ashley and David's Ellijay Mountain Wedding

Sometimes there's an appeal to the congregation. 

 Meg and Kadesha's Forest Hills Resort Wedding

And almost always there's a celebration at the end.

Favorite Wedding Photographs from 2016: Getting Ready

"Looking back at my life's voyage, I can only say that it has been a golden trip."
Ginger Rogers

One year ends and another begins. We look back and we look forward, like Janus, the god.

I take the time to look back at the photographs I've taken during the past year and think about all the wonderful people I've met through my photography.

Here are few of my favorite photographs from the Getting Ready part of the wedding day. Ties seem to be a theme for the guys and surprise for the ladies.
