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.

Catrina Getting Ready: Wedding at Fountain of Faith MBC

Sometimes couples wonder if they really need to have a photographer taking photographs while they are getting ready.

Here are a few photos of Catrina getting ready for her September wedding to give you an idea of the kinds of photographs we take during the two or three hours before the wedding ceremony.

Aaron and Catrina's MBC and Gateway Marriott Wedding

Sometimes, as a photographer, when reviewing the photographs from one of my shoots, I am surprised by one of my own photos.

It doesn't happen all that often, but it's always a delight when it does. The photograph above, taken at Aaron and Catrina's reception at the Marriott Gateway Atlanta, is one of those photographs.

I remember the moments, just a few, when Catrina's Uncle Jerry took to the dance floor to show off his moves. I remember focusing on the action and taking a few shots. But I have no recollection of choosing to focus my camera on the bride's reaction, which, let's face it, is what makes that photograph.

Do I attribute that shift in focus to pure luck, or to a photographer's second sense? I'm not sure. I'm just glad it happened. I'm pretty uncle Jerry will be, too.

Looking for a photographer to capture moments like this one at your wedding? Give us a call (404 298-6263) or shoot us an email at cindy@cbrownphoto.com.
