Erica and Jason's Marietta Square Engagement Safari

Had a delightful time with Erica and Jason in Marietta Square a couple of weekends ago on an engagement safari. We were in search of photos that would capture the essence of their relationship. Here's what Erica wrote when she saw the photos:

"Oh my goodness. Wow. I'm blown away. What a fun slideshow! It had me smiling from the very beginning, and even laughing! Every picture just seems to be bursting with how much we enjoy each other. It is so stunningly different from other engagement photo sessions I've seen; so much more natural. What a great style. You really captured Jason like no one else has. I am absolutely beyond delighted."

And here are a few favorites from the shoot.

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.
