Favorite Wedding Photographs 2016: Ceremony

The heart of a wedding day is the ceremony. I love a good wedding ceremony.

Recently I listened to a photographer talk about how monotonous wedding ceremonies can be. I totally disagree. Every ceremony I've attended has had its own essence. And every couple responds to the solemnity of the service differently.

Sometimes the ring doesn't fit ... or doesn't seem to fit ... or maybe somebody just makes it seem like it doesn't fit.

 Tim and Vanessa Wedding at Emory Presbyterian Church and Trolley Barn

Sometimes the kiss is delicate.

 Kim and Shelby's Wedding at Avondale Estates Clubhouse

Sometimes the ring goes on without a hitch.

 Ashley and David's Ellijay Mountain Wedding

Sometimes there's an appeal to the congregation. 

 Meg and Kadesha's Forest Hills Resort Wedding

And almost always there's a celebration at the end.

Tips for choosing among Atlanta wedding photographers based on style

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.
