Come see me at Lakefest in Pine Lake | Atlanta Event Photographer

I'm busy getting ready for my first arts festival show -- the city of Pine Lake's 9th annual Lakefest. The event will take place (yes, you guessed it) around the lake in Pine Lake on  Saturday Oct. 3rd from 10 a.m. until dark and Sunday, Oct. 4th from noon to 5 p.m. I'll have more than 50 matted photos for sale at the show. Many of the photos will be from Pine Lake. Most of the others will be part of a project I've been working on for several years documenting religious signs around the south.

I'll also have some fun children's portraits to show off as I unveil my playground portrait session packages.

Admission to Lakefest is free. In addition to photography, you'll find painting, felting, handcrafted jewelry (check out my neighbor Kristin's work here), handmade cards/stationary, and more.

Live musical performances will include rock, European-gypsy jazz, electro-pop, international folk, and acoustic Americana genres.

Activities for attendees of all ages will include a sand sculpture contest, face painting and children’s art activities, a Saturday night beach party, and more.

Come see me at my booth and join the fun.

Atlanta Wedding Photojournalism

Cindy Brown

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.
