Newport RI Wedding Photographer | New York Yacht Club | Fort Adams | Atlanta Destination Wedding Photographer

I have been an Atlanta-based wedding photographer for just about 15 years now, and have loved every minute.  I photograph weddings all over the southeast every year, and I get so excited when I’m in a new location.  A new wedding venue really gets the creative juices flowing.  Over the years I’ve been doing more and more destination weddings.  Photographing destination weddings has become a real passion, and I’ve been lucky enough to work from coast to coast, and beyond.  This Newport, Rhode Island destination wedding was stunning from start to finish.  Newport is about as perfect a backdrop for romance as you can find.  Between historic sites sitting on harbors full of rocking sailboats, and endless fresh food it’s a true destination!  The wedding day began in the ultra-exclusive New York Yacht Club’s Harbour Court.  This amazing club is classic and chic, and has an absolutely dazzling view of Newport harbor.  The architecture and grounds of The NYYC can’t help but make one feel transported to a time when life was a little slower, and a little more luxe.

The bride brought a little southern style up from Atlanta for her Newport destination wedding.  Love it!

The ladies jumped on a launch to cross the Newport harbor.  Not a bad way to travel!  They docked right in front of one of Newport’s historic jewels.  The ceremony and reception took place at Fort Adams, which is a dream for a photographer!

This Newport destination wedding was such a gem.  I was so thrilled to have been a part of it, and extra thrilled when it was featured by ‘Destination I Do’ Magazine.  CLICK HERE is you want to see their lovely write up on this special event.  Are you newly engaged, and planning something a little different?  Then you need a photographer that is a little different!!  I’d love to jump on a plane, and be a part of your destination wedding from the planning all the way through my super speedy turn around.  How does 7 days sound?  ;)

Children’s Portrait Photographer | Atlanta Photographer

Mother Nature tried to shut down this fabulous Atlanta children’s portrait session, but I had other plans.  For a small portrait session that doesn’t really HAVE to be completed on a specific day it’s not unlikely for an Atlanta rain day to force a reschedule.  However, I decided to roll with it.  I absolutely love the authentic and beautiful images that we ended up with.  A big shout out to my lovely little subject, and her awesome mom for playing in the rain with me!

Kellum Valley Farm Wedding | Northeast Georgia Wedding Photography | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

This northeast Georgia wedding made me a happy, happy wedding photographer.  I venture from my home base in Atlanta quite a lot.  I photograph destination weddings all over the states and Caribbean, but this wedding was a little closer to home, and also at one of my MOST FAVE VENUES ever.  Nestled in the gentle hills of Cleveland, Georgia sits the wedding wonder that is The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm.  If you are planning your wedding in northeast Georgia you should definitely pay Kellum Valley Farm a visit.  It’s just plain lovely!…….Just like my bride for this stunning summer wedding.  She and her wonderful husband have sinced moved abroad, and I’m so happy that I was able to be a part of their special day.

Rustic and primitive buildings like this are why I love farm weddings in Georgia SO much!  The textures of a farm wedding are just perfection!

Decatur, Georgia Photographer | Cator-Woolford Gardens | Downtown Decatur

I photographed this beautiful couple’s wedding a few years ago at Piedmont Park, and I was super excited to catch up with them for this Decatur, Georgia family portrait session.  I always like to chose multiple locations for my family portrait sessions so that I can capture lots of different vibes.  Lots of fabulous options is never a bad thing!!

It’s absolutely a must for me to create contrast in my family portrait sessions.  I love to do half of my portrait sessions surrounded by a lovely garden space, and then finish up with the cool facades of something industrial.

Destination Wedding Photographer | St. John USVI Wedding | Atlanta Engagement Portraits

I went on a lovely adventure with this pair of love birds.  First, I photographed their engagement portraits in Atlanta and Decatur.  Next, we were off to St. John USVI for their amazing destination wedding.  You’ll see some of that on the blog soon I’m sure.  Let’s start with these fabulous engagement portraits.  We had such a fantastic time together.  This couple is perfectly cool, and their love is something that you can feel.  Such a real pleasure to know them, and be their photographer.

One thing that is a particular treat about destination weddings for me is that I can shoot in the city for the engagement photos…..play with industrial spaces, and urban vibes.  I love the contrast to the natural beauty of a destination wedding shoot.  It’s just right!

Nothing makes me happier as a long time(15 years people!) wedding photographer, than having a gorgeous, cool couple to get creative with.  Jetting off to the USVI with these two, and their lovely guests was such a highlight last year.  :)

Whether you live in Atlanta or the USVI what matters most is having a true pro by your side on your wedding day.  Photo By Gannon regularly photographs destination weddings, and LOOKS FORWARD to jumping on a plane so let’s talk about YOUR destination wedding!  Live in the states?  Even better because we can do an engagement session in your town before we hit the islands.  Hope to hear from you soon, and meet you on the shore!

Family Portraits | Decatur, Georgia Photographer

I have had the pleasure to photograph this adorable little family quite a few times, and I always leave our portrait sessions feeling so happy.  They are just a sweet group!  For this family portrait session I met up with them in Loganville, Georgia.  We made the most of an early summer green space, and had many giggles along the way……..

If your little group is long overdue for that family portrait session, there is no time like the present.  This family portrait photographer is based in Decatur, Georgia, but I photograph portrait sessions all over the southeast.  I also photograph destination weddings from California to Maine to the Caribbean, and everything in between so get in touch.  I may be in your neighborhood soon.  I hope so!  :)

Atlanta Family Portraits | Atlanta, Georgia Photographer

For this Atlanta family portrait session I headed up to my client’s home.  And…..I LOVE this little family!!  They are just cool, and gorgeous, and fun to hang out with!  I was so happy when I got the call to photograph a family portrait session with their newborn.  It’s wonderful to watch my client’s families grow over the years.  Beautiful history that I’m honored to photograph over the years……

Atlanta Newborn Photographer | Atlanta Photographer

Summer feels like it’s here once again in Atlanta, and I had to share this summer newborn session.  I photographed the wedding of this little newborn’s parents a few years ago, and it was so fun to meet her over my lens.  Our themes for this newborn photo session felt so summery to me, complete with hydrangeas and red, white, and blue.  Grab your lemonade, and hit the pool.  Summer is here!  :)

The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm Wedding | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

This gorgeous wedding at The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm was perfection.  I’m an Atlanta based wedding photographer, but I am ALWAYS ready to hit the road or jump on  a plane.  As such, I’ve photographed weddings all over the place, and have moved into the destination wedding market more every year……..happily so!  :)  This lovely wedding was only a short couple of hours in the car up to pastoral northeast Georgia.  Kellum Valley Farm is hands down one of my all time favorite venues.  It’s unique and lovely in every way.  The real cherry on top is the staff.  Perfectly professional, but make you feel like an old friend.  It’s always a pleasure when I photograph a wedding at Kellum Valley Farms.  This summer wedding was no exception.  Perfect weather, glorious surroundings, and happy people.  I need nothing else to be a very happy wedding photographer.

Decatur, Georgia Portrait Session | Decatur, Georgia Photographer

This Decatur, Georgia portrait session needs no explanation.  It is adorable, and that’s really it!  I’ve had the pleasure to photograph this cutie, and his equally adorable family all over Atlanta.  For this session we decided to embrace his inner super hero.  I’m so glad that we did…..

I love my children’s portrait sessions.  It’s fun to just…..play, and let my little subjects lead the way(with a little hidden direction of course).  ;)  If your little one is growing up too fast for you to keep up let’s plan a custom portrait session today!  I handful of dates left this season, and I’d love you to grab it up!
