Schloemer Business Services Launch Party | Atlanta Event Photographer

I've been busy this month photographing people and events and haven't kept my blog as up to date as I'd like. Trying to catch up and so today I'm sharing photos from the Launch Party for Schloemer Business Services that took place on Feb 16th at the Hudson Grille Midtown. Turnout for the party was great with about 150 guests attending to celebrate Pam Schloemer's success.

The party was a fundraiser for Leader Dogs for the Blind, an organization founded by three Detroit area Lyon's Club members in 1939 that trains and provides guide dogs to people who are seeing impaired. Pam is a member of the Lyon's Club International and the Leader Dog program is near and dear to her heart. She was glad to announce at the end of the evening that the folks attending the party had raised more than $600 for the Leader Dog Foundation.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the night:

Atlanta Event Photographer

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.
