Amber and Jerome's Stone Mountain Engagement Safari | Wedding Photojouranalism

Putt Putt Golf Engagement Session

Putt Putt Golf Engagement Session

I had a blast photographing Amber and Jerome at Stone Mountain Park the other day. They won an engagement safari at a recent bridal show and were excited to get together for the shoot. We planned to take photos at Snow Mountain, but someone forgot to reserve the tickets. We decided to head over to the putt putt golf course to see what we could come up with there. Amber and Jerome ragged on each other about how bad they were and laughed and laughed and laughed some more.

Then we headed to the top of the mountain via the skylift, where we found out it gets very cold on top of Stone Mountain in February.

After a quick foray onto the top of the mountain, we headed back down to the warmth of low ground.

What an adorable couple. Hope they decide to take us with them for their destination wedding. (Hint, hint! :))

Engagement photographers in Atlanta


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.
