Kara Johnson Joins the C Brown Photo Team as a Photo Intern

I'm excited to announce that Kara Johnson will be working with me as a photo intern. Here is one of my favorite photos from Kara's portfolio. I love her willingness to move in close with a wide angle lens and to choose an angle other than eye-level. Can't wait to work with Kara.

    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.
