Atlanta Wedding Photojournalist: Kate and Kyle's Emory/Watershed Restaurant Wedding

My assistant photographer, Sharon McMahon, and I had the privilege of photographing Kate Floyd and Kyle Tau's wedding and reception yesterday. Kate and Kyle and family, along with the wedding planners from Wedding Soiree pulled together everything necessary for an awesome wedding--a beautiful dress and veil for the bride, gorgeous flowers by Bloom Floral Design, handsome tuxedos for the guys, some delicious Southern food and drink from the Chef Joe Truex and crew, and a down-home, kicking, bluegrass band DejaBlue. The wedding was performed by Kate's grandfather in Cannon Chapel on the Emory Campus and the reception took place at The Watershed Restaurant in Decatur.

Here are a few of my favorites. (I'm holding back some of the best for the slideshow I'm working on, so stay tuned for more.)

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.
