Jamie and Daniel's Atrium Wedding

Talk about a rockin' Saturday night -- Jamie and Daniel's reception at The Atrium was the epitome of a dance party. Chad Gillam, Jamie and Daniel's DJ played songs from each grooms high school days and ask anyone who remembered the songs to join them on the dance floor. It turned into a regular episode of Dance Fever.

The party was proceeded by a lovely wedding in the garden, complete with white lights and ring-bearers carrying lanterns. Heaters were thoughtfully spaced around the edge of the seating area to keep folks toasty. And hand warmers were provided to make sure no one left with frostbite.

(Hmmm ... that frostbite comment is a bit of a stretch. It wasn't even freezing.)

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the evening.

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.
