I got to know Cindy when she booked me for her wedding over a year ago. We became fast friends. I love hanging out with her and her family. Every time we get together we just laugh and laugh. There were a lot of laughs at her wedding and even a few tears. It was such a pleasure to be along side her as she married Markus.

Markus and Cindy themed their wedding, “Awaken Your Inner Child”. They entered their reception with Storm Trooper escorts, there was chocolate soup (which I still can’t get over), temporary tattoos, and lots and lots of Legos. There was entertainment for all ages including a memorable father-daughter dance to “Punk Rock Girl.” It was a wedding to remember, I was happy to be a part of such a great production.

I look forward to all the laughs and memories in the coming years.

Alden and I went to high school together. I was so happy when I got the call to photograph her wedding. We hadn’t seen each other in about 10 years! I was even happier to be there with her for her marriage to Colin! It’s great to reconnect with someone that I get along with so well, and that lives here in Atlanta!

The wedding was perfect. Every detail had been thought out and executed and planned. The band was one of the best I have ever heard, I couldn’t help but dance. I remember there was a moment where I left the dance floor to take some pictures of the “non-dancers”. As I looked around I realized that there were pretty much no “non-dancers”. Everyone was on the dance floor, smiling and laughing.

I had a great night and I wish Alden and Colin all the best!

Working in the industry I see lots of great wedding ideas! I have recently stole one! I photographed a very memorable wedding on leap day for Nikki and Steve. Steve is such a lover of Chucks that he wore converse to his own wedding.

I had a lot of factors when thinking about what kind of shoe I wanted to wear…
1. Paul is only 2 to 3 inches taller then me so I should wear something flat
2. I needed a shoe that I could handle accidentally stepping in elephant dung
3. As a bride I need something blue
4. I have a very limited weight limit for my trip so I needed a practical shoe that I can re wear during the trip

While thinking about all these factors I remembered Steve’s shoes and decided that I should custom make some converse ( I put some blue and even added the place and date Zambia 6-1-8 (6-1-08 was one too many characters).

They came in today and I just love them! I don’t think I have ever been this excited about shoes. I never thought I would blog about a shoe, but this shoe rocks and makes me smile! Thanks Steve for the idea!
