Each year I gather together several images from currant weddings and put them in video form.  I showcase this video (in an extended form) at the Georgia Bridal Show, where I have a booth.

Amberly and Jamie are getting married in June so we set out last weekend to shoot some Engagement pictures and a few family pictures. We headed down to Piedmont Park in Atlanta and had a wonderful time wandering the park taking pictures along the way. What a sweet couple they are! I can not wait for their wedding in June!

Last week I had the pleasure of taking maternity pictures for Kristi and Phil.  They are an extremely cute couple expecting their first baby on October 17th.  A boy!!  We had lots of fun hiking through the Cascade Springs Nature Preserve in Atlanta, GA.  My favorite part of the day, other than the cool cave opening to a cool waterfall, was the way that Kristi and Phil looked at each other…full of love in their eyes!  They are going to be a great mommy and daddy to their little blessing.

How could you not love this cuteness? Jasper has some of the greatest expressions ever! Seven months has passed quick and he just keeps getting more and more personality! I know his Mommy and Daddy and Nanny and Poppy and Aunties absolutely cannot get enough!

Back in April of 2011 I had the pleasure of being part of Mandy and Jed’s wedding. It was a wonderful wedding and they were such a memorable couple. It is always such a joy to have the opportunity to take pictures of former brides and grooms babies as they arrive into this world. Pepper is 3 months old. She has such a beautiful smile and she loves her mommy so very much. She is such a sweet baby.

I had such a wonderful Father’s Day this year and this little guy was one of the reasons why. We got to play games, watch a movie, drink an Icee at the movie, swim, and take pictures to remember the weekend. His personality is so funny, and his creativity and imagination are so huge. He is truly one of the greatest joys of my life!

So, what happens when you co-host an art show with Brian Miller?  Well Shenna found that out first hand.  The art show “Love Letters” was to be an art show where participants creatively painted and decorated letters of the alphabet that meant something special to them, and then each participant would share what their letter meant to them, or at least that was what Shenna thought.  Without her knowing, Brian had set up a surprise proposal and everyone at the art show and all its participants knew exactly what he was planning.  The only one in the dark was Shenna.  You see, each letter that was to be painted or decorated was a letter in the phrase…WILL YOU MARRY ME.  The letter Shenna chose to paint was the letter K.  So Brian had Shenna talk about her letter first, and while she was telling everyone what K meant Brian was behind her rearranging all the letters to spell out…WILL YOU MARRY ME.  When she turned around her jaw dropped and the tears fell and Brian got down on one knee and she said YES!!!
