Keena and Lorie's Backyard Ceremony

 Keena and Lorie, Two Brides, Wembly Walk, Tucker

Keena and Lorie turned a simple backyard wedding into a thing of beauty with their DIY stylings.

Here’s the ceremony space they created.

And here’s the much needed water and lemonade station.

The couple flew in from Texas for their ceremony, which was officiated by my friend Kim Jackson. Their family and friends surrounded them with love and celebrated their union with glee.

While the couple was getting ready, Lorie’s step-Dad, Chris, simulated a blessing of some sort.

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.

Kim and Shelby's Wedding at the Avondale Estates Clubhouse

I love a wedding with a dog in attendance. Kim and Shelby's wedding was the first wedding with a dog that we have photographed.

Check it out. I think you'll love Maple.

Here's Maple. Kim and Shelby called her "flat Maple" because she was cut out from cardboard. They were afraid real Maple would be a bit of a distraction.

Camari & Jeremiah's Engagement | by Cindy and Sharon Same Sex Wedding Photographers

Camari and Jeremiah's Engagement Session
Camari and Jeremiah's Engagement Session

We had the pleasure of photographing two handsome fellas this past weekend. We met Camari and Jeremiah at our Marry Who You Love Pride booth and were delighted to have them over to our favorite small town--Pine Lake--for a mini engagement session. We walked from our home to the lake and then along the Eastern Wetlands path with the goal of capturing their loving and playful natures. Here are the results of our efforts.
