Maggie and Tim's Decatur Square Engagement Safari | Atlanta Wedding Photography

I'm happy to release a few of my favorite photos from Maggie and Tim's delightful engagement safari. We started our afternoon in the lovely garden behind Maggie's parents' house. The family dogs joined in the fun for a while jumping and running and fetching ... well the younger of the two did, anyway. After warming up to the photo shoot process in the back yard, we hit the big time in the front of the Decatur Courthouse, then moved to the canon and on the square. Maggie and Tim love the Raging Burrito, so we staged a few with the Burrito in the background and ended at another favorite hangout, The Brick Store.

Check out some of the sweet photos from that day:

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.
