This day.  This shining, bright, beautiful Atlanta day.  I arrived at the Park Tavern in Piedmont Park already filled with the kind of anticipation and joy that only comes with knowing that the bride and groom of the day are so perfectly matched, so beautifully aligned and in love.  Menucha and Austin are two of the most genuinely loving, gentle, kind-hearted and wonderful people I know.  It was so much fun seeing them come together on their wedding day, surrounded by the boundless love of their communities.  A truly beautiful modern Jewish wedding, this event had it all.  It’s impossible to say which was my favorite part.  Was it the bedekken — where the bride and groom saw each other for the first time in days — surrounded by the dancing, singing community?  Or maybe it was the ceremony, where Menucha and Austin so lovingly held on to each other, and read their wonderful vows?  Or maybe it was the dancing after the ceremony.  So. much. dancing.

I feel so lucky that I got to be there, let alone be inside so many intimate moments of the day.   Austin + Menucha Wedding-001 Austin + Menucha Wedding-006 Austin + Menucha Wedding-007 Austin + Menucha Wedding-014 Austin + Menucha Wedding-015 Austin + Menucha Wedding-019 Austin + Menucha Wedding-022 Austin + Menucha Wedding-021 Austin + Menucha Wedding-025 Austin + Menucha Wedding-026 Austin + Menucha Wedding-030 Austin + Menucha Wedding-031 Austin + Menucha Wedding-035

I had so much fun photographing these wonderful lovebirds for their engagement.  They chose the busy, quirky, and lively Belt Line in Atlanta for their session, and we explored nonstop, including a stop at delicious Jake’s Ice Cream.  Their love is so true, so genuine, that their feelings seem to radiate through each photograph.  What more could I ask?

This gorgeous Northern California Wedding took me far outside of what I had come to expect from our chilly, foggy area of the globe.  It was dry, dusty, and a bit bleak driving out to The Holly Farm.  As soon as I arrived at the venue, though, the desert gave way to a small but undeniably lush haven.  Quirky nicknacks and quaint and unique details made the location pop with personality and pizzaz.  And the bride and groom were equally bubbly and energetic.  The celebration went on and on, with outpourings of love, and absolutely fabulous dancing.  Dancing dancing dancing.

 

I second shot this wedding with Gabriel Harber Photography.

Victoria and Vaughn are one of the most energetic, loving, and charismatic couples I’ve ever met.  Victoria laughed and cheered through the entire wedding, and Vaughn looked at her with such admiration, such joy.  And the sentiments were absolutely contagious.

I second-shot this wedding with Anna Wu in the middle of Northern California at the Ruby Hill Golf Club.
