All I can say is moving a blog is not that much easier than moving from one home to another. Check out the new blog here, and keep in mind, we haven't unpacked all the china yet!

For Julia & Dan's wedding, Mandy and I traveled to Windsor, Ontario for our first trip to Canada. I initially met Julia & Dan just to shoot their engagement portraits here in Atlanta where they are both attending medical school. It came as a great surprise to me this summer when Julia asked if we would travel to document her wedding as well. I'll never forget her wedding; although I was shooting for 14 hours, at the end of the night the only thing on my mind was that I enjoyed every moment. At one point during the day Julia gave me a hug and said: "I'm so glad you're here!" making me feel like an old friend. Julia seems to have that effect on people, and I imagine for that reason she will make a truly wonderful doctor whose patients rest easier in her care. It's clear how much she and Dan love one another, and I feel privileged to have recorded a few fleeting moments for them.
By the way, it rained ALL DAY! No one let that dampen the celebration however...
Mandy's photos of Dan and the guys getting ready.
Mandy's next two photos
One of my favorite images
I love my new 24mm f1.4 MKII lens, used for the two images below. If those technical details mean nothing to you, don't worry- the specs just mean it is crispy sharp and the colors are amazingly true, plus it is capable of shooting in very low light. I previously had the MKI, aka first version, and it was, um, not wonderful.
The reception details created by Raviv at FOS Decor were incredibly lush...
My favorite detail by far was the projection of roses along all the ballroom walls. The projection created an other-worldly ambiance.
Mandy's lovely, warm first dance image
And one I caught at the end of the dance that shows so much tenderness between these two. After I clicked the frame I wanted to fist-pump the air in triumph, but I managed to refrain myself.
More 24mm lens goodness...
There was a wonderful sense of family and love for Julia and Dan throughout the reception, as shown here by everyone surrounding them.
Time to say goodnight!
