Atlanta Couple Featured on Cake Hunters

Just finished watching the season premier of Cake Hunters, featuring "sophisticated Vanessa and her Southern beau, Tim." That's the way the folks at the Cooking Channel describe the amazing couple whose wedding we photographed the end of April. You can decide for yourself if the description fits by watching the episode for yourself here.

We were blown away by the look and the taste of the winning cake created by the ladies at Confection Perfection. (The other two cakes were spectacular, as well.)

So sorry we couldn't taste every layer of the winning cake, and sure you will be, too, once you hear the detailed description of every layers' scrumptousness when you watch the show.

 Our favorite part of the cake was added to appease the delightfully manly Tim. (See the show for more details.)

I'm honored that Vanessa and Tim chose us as their Atlanta wedding photojournalists.

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.
