Chris and Mike's Grande Wedding

 Mike and Chris's Wedding at The Grande wedding venue in Kennesaw

Chris and Mike’s super fun wedding took place Thursday afternoon at The Grande in Kennesaw.

Like many couples, Chris and Mike say they were most concerned about “making sure everything went smoothly” on their wedding day. They were afraid they might not be able to stick to the timeline they had planned.

But, once the day started, like for most couples, those worries slipped away.

At that point, they say, “We just wanted everyone to have a good time spending the day celebrating with each other.” And boy did they!

One of the fun things about their wedding was that the grooms and their wedding party all finished getting ready together. So the guys got to see the ladies put their make up on.

The day was overcast and chilly, but the leaves were still beautiful. And the laughter and joy plentiful.

What Chris and Mike loved most about their wedding “was that it was small and intimate, and that we were able to celebrate with the people we loved the most.”

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.
