Monica & Geoffrey, etc. | The Woods | Morrow, GA

The beautiful thing about photographing your own family members is that they don’t get to be picky.  I’m the one who gets to choose.   So I choose to make their entire blog post only black and white photos, and the first two pictures are of my nephew Corbin being serious and grown-up, while my little nephew Holland scampers about like a squirrel, and my brother and sister-in-law just sit there, probably wishing they were still in bed.

I love them.

I’m particularly excited about the niece they’re giving me in the new year.  Thank you, Geoffrey.  Thank you, Monica.  I will now buy all the frilly things.

That is not a stump.  That is a rocket ship to space.

Lovelovelovelovelove.

I photographed Little Miss Adeline almost exactly one year ago, and she’s only gotten cuter since then!

Plus: those legs!  I can’t wait to see this girly kick a soccer ball one day!

Jess & Charlie’s wedding felt less like working with “clients” and more like celebrating with friends — probably because I’ve known them through Erin for several years!  This meant I was already friends with several of their guests, and got special access to the pour-your-own Scotch bar, which (let’s be honest) is really all I need to be in utter bliss.

My Co-tographer: Erin Schopf
Ceremony & Reception: Sawyer Family Farmstead
Jess’s Gown: David Fielden
Flowers & Decor: DIY
Cake: Just Simply Delicious

Jess and her sweet puppy…

The wedding bands, and some DIY macro…

The groom’s cottage…

What a nice groom!  Charlie got his guys these handsome flasks as groomsmen gifts…

First look…

The weather was all over the place in the mountains on this particular Saturday!  When we started the photos with the guys, the sun was blaring…

…but we barely made it through a couple of wedding party photos before the rain started…

The rain disappeared again, and we popped outside for photos of the ladies…

Clouds rolling in again…

I loved Jess & Charlie’s version of a guestbook…

It started raining again, so we rushed for cover…

…but the sun came BACK out to play for cocktail hour!

Yes.

Erin snuck this shot of me pouring our Scotches!  NOM!

And there’s Erin, looking super cute as always as she sneaks around on the dance floor with her camera!

I can’t stop laughing:

This wedding was brought to you by:

(Anne & Erin)

When Kat from Rock ‘N Roll Bride sent me this e-mail, I was pretty excited, but I knew my bride Lena would pee her pants: “I’ve just seen Lena & George’s amazing wedding on your blog and I’d LOVE to include this rad circus wedding in [my] yearly print magazine!”  Of course we responded with a resounding YES, PLEASE!!! and the rest is print history.

Check out more photos from Lena & George’s adventurous, colorful, “Mad Hatter on Acid” celebration (complete with fire lanterns!) HERE.

My co-’tographer Erin and I were crazy-honored to be invited to photograph TEDxPeachtree, Atlanta’s own independently organized TED event.  If you’ve never seen a TED presentation, allow me to introduce you.  These are three of our all-time favorite TED talks, sure to squeeze your soul, catch your breath, and challenge your views:

-Brené Brown, self-described “researcher-storyteller”, studies the insane power — and necessity — of vulnerability in our lives (at TEDxHouston).

-Ash Beckham invites us all to identify our own closets, and finally COME OUT (at TEDxBoulder).

-Dan Pallotta revolutionizes our thinking about nonprofits, and envisions a bold new path toward changing the world (at TED2013).

One of TEDxPeachtree’s sponsors was SocialBox, a cool new way to photobooth it!

Thrive Farmers Coffee was on hand to wake us all up with farm-direct, fresh-brewed coffee!

Backstage, with the presenters… I love the old ROXY sign hanging on the wall!  Anyone remember the ROXY days?

LOTS of Google Glass was on display at TEDxPeachtree!  I loved this techy ma’am on the front row in her Google Glass, lounging on a gi-normous JAXX bean bag chair!

(Thanks, Ben & Colleen, for the photo of me!)

Clifton Is New Here

I love meeting babies.  I don’t have my own baby, and I don’t want my own baby.  But other people’s babies?  Totally the best.  Clifton provided my perfect November baby fix!

I’m not often a big fan of baby props, but this hat… Yeah. Adorable.
