Lauren and Adam's Higdon House Wedding (Greensboro, Georgia)

Our first experience photographing a wedding at the Higdon House in Greensboro, Georgia, was delightful.

Lauren and Adam's wedding day had just the right amount of quirkiness to it to make it fabulous. The ceremony took place in the lovely outdoor chapel, surrounded by blooming hyacinths and daylilies. Lauren and Adam, both avid music fans, chose a soundtrack for their ceremony that was definitely offbeat. The groom processed from poolside to the strains of "Nothing but a G Thang." The bridesmaids and groomsmen entered from the arbor to the "Harry Potter Intro." And the bride walked down the aisle to "Stellar." They each wrote their own vows and when they read them, laughter and tears welled up in guests and family alike.

The supper buffet fit right in with the Southern charm of the Higdon House -- macaroni and cheese, summer squash, and a down-home twist on chicken cordon blue. The red velvet wedding cake was delicious in a traditional way, but non-traditional in decoration.

After dinner, folks let loose on the dance floor. Special requests from bride and groom and friends ramped up the craziness.

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.
