Here's a sneak peek from our first wedding of 2018 ... and boy was this a fun-filled wedding! As well as a brrrrrr-filled wedding.

Thankfully, the folks at Table & Main Restaurant in Roswell were able to turn up the temperature outdoors with heaters and hot chocolate, the 30 degree temps were more than bearable.

Oh, and in addition to the heaters, there was a roaring fire in the fireplace to warm the minister and the couple ... Jackie and Julie.

Blair, Jackie and Julie's friend, who had never officiated a wedding, put in a stellar performance, as did close friend's Lara and Val, who toasted the couple during the ceremony.

Julie's son Ben served as the ring bearer and an attentive witness.

A candle lighting ritual gave everyone who attended a chance to participate in the ceremony and show their support for Jackie and Julie.

Ben and friends played Jenga and corn hole, while the adults told tales and shared fun and laughter around the lunch table.

Guests had a choice of she crab soup or arugula salad for starters and shrimp and grits, a veggie plate, or a Brasstown burger with pimento cheese. (The burger looked so awesome that even someone who hasn't eaten meat in forty years, me, was tempted.)

The chefs at Table & Main baked up a delectable cake for the traditional cake cutting.

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.
