The carriage photo

The photo at the top of the blog (well it used to be at the top of the blog) was taken in 2007 at a beautiful wedding in Picayune, Mississippi. Anthony and Bethany, both dance instructors, chose to tie the knot beside a lovely lake. Bethany decided to ride in style on her way to the peninsula where the ceremony took place. I shot the photograph with a 70-200 mm f2.8 Canon lens from a bridge in an effort to include storytelling context ... the lake and scenery.

Later that evening, I took this photo of the bridesmaid who caught the bouquet watching the groomsman who caught the garter as he danced the Garter Dance. The photo was chosen as a runner up in the September Fluid Gallery photo contest.

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
