Mary Martha and Nathan's Pine Lake Engagement

Mary Martha and Nathan's Pine Lake Engagement

Nathan and Mary Martha kept each other laughing during their engagement session in beautiful Pine Lake, Georgia. Before the session, Mary Martha told me, “We are both goofy, especially Nathan, and it tends to be infectious!”

Fun, laughter, love … yep, infectious all of them.

A few award-winning engagement photos and what I've learned from them

The wedding photojournalist association has added engagement photography to their contest competitions. And I’ve taken the opportunity to enter a few of my favorite engagement images.

I’m happy to report that I took home three awards in 2018. Here are the winners. Thanks to the couples who were so fun and funny, and warm and loving.

Yellow Ribbon Couples' Portrait in Pine Lake

A few years back I joined a group of volunteers called Yellow Ribbon Photographers.

Photographers who join agree to provide a photo session along with several prints to military personnel about to deploy.

About a month ago, I got my first call from a couple interested in taking me up on my offer. Peter and Lauren are both in the Air Force and are about to be deployed to Germany.

What a fun duo! I had a blast capturing the love and adoration they have for each other.

C Brown Photo, Atlanta Engagement Portrait Photographer

Cindy Brown

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.
