Maggie and Tim's June Botanical Gardens Wedding

I've had a very busy Spring and early Summer, but thankfully have finally gotten around to posting a few photos from one my favorite weddings of the year -- Maggie and Tim's lovely June wedding at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Nicole Fantz of Peachtree Weddings flawlessly coordinated the event from start to finish. Maggie's Decatur family and Emory friends and Tim's family from England and Cambridge friends came together for a wonderful celebration. The day was delightful, the gardens stunning, the dancing lovely, the cake delicious and the toasts hilarious.

Before she hired us Maggie told us she chose us for two reasons: "the incredible ability to anticipate a moment and capture true emotion, and the gorgeous composition of so many shots." And here's what she had to say in an e-mail after she saw the photos from her wedding. "We shared the pictures with our families and the wedding party, and you're getting rave reviews! I can't believe how stunning the pictures are. Thank you so so much to you and Sharon. I'll be spreading the word about how thrilled we are."

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day. Atlanta Wedding Photojournalism

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.
