Atlanta Senior Portraits | Dahlonega, Georgia | Decatur, Georgia Portrait Photographer
Senior portrait sessions are just marvelous! As a portrait photographer you know how to really ‘see’ people. It’s something that comes naturally. The process of photographing someone in a one on one setting is really special to me. Chatting, watching, listening. I love talking to my senior portrait clients. They are on this fascinating precipice. It’s a time full of first time decisions, and there is so much road in front of them. They are so often full of excitement for the future, and their dreams are out there. It’s hard not to get a little charge from these awesome young people! For this handsome young guy, we worked in Dahlonega, Georgia. It’s one of my favorite little mountain towns. It’s festive, and quaint, with a lot of personality. I’ve photographed a ton of weddings in the surrounding Dahlonega wineries, and have had the pleasure to photograph a lot of different portrait sessions in the idyllic town square.
Senior portrait sessions are about capturing the interests and personality of one special young person. It’s an honor to be a senior portrait photographer, and the young people that I meet in front of my lens are amazing!

Dahlonega Wedding Photography | Decatur, Georgia Photographer
I’m an Atlanta based wedding photographer, but that doesn’t mean I am locked in Atlanta every weekend. I photograph events all over the states, and in EVERY corner of Georgia. One of my favorite areas of Georgia is Dahlonega. It’s wonderfully beautiful, and peppered with fantastic wedding venues. This recent wedding was at The Dahlonega Spa Resort. Have a look!
The bride’s dress was finished by the hands of her talented grandmother. She added details to the dress to make it just what the bride envisioned. It was lovely.
My bride was styled by the fabulous Marissa Kaye. This was a treat as Marissa and I met nearly 10 years ago on a commercial set, and I loved getting to catch up with her. She is wonderful at what she does, and so much fun to have in the room.
I really love these sharp summer suits by Calvin Klein. It’s the perfect answer to the Georgia heat.
The bride’s purple wedding details popped beautifully!
My bride had such a strong vision for her big day. With the help of family and friends, a massive amount of DIY magic occurred. Some of my favorites were the brooch bouquet, hand made veil, and the lace seat covers. Everything was so well done, and I am the definition of ‘detail oriented’ so nothing was lost on me. NO detail is too small.
Dahlonega really does provide such a gorgeous setting for a wedding. It’s definitely an area to look into, especially if you are planning an outdoor event.
The bride’s vintage ring was super unique, and looked perfect on her.
This gorge cake decor is DIY done RIGHT! I love this cascade of antique brooches and purple flowers. Perfection!

Winter Wedding in Dahlonega, Georgia | Atlanta Wedding Photographer
This winter I headed up to Dahlonega, Georgia for this special event. If you’ve not been in that part of the state you should stop in. It’s a gorgeous little mountain town. It was particularly charming during this holiday season wedding. It was aglow with twinkly lights and covered in festive bows. I met up with the bride and the rest of the ladies at The Park Place Hotel to document all the fun as they got camera ready. I always show up early to get all of the getting ready photos. When I photograph a wedding I don’t want to miss a minute. My packages are for unlimited time, and I mean it!
The bride chose a gorgeous wedding dress. It was perfectly romantic with an elegant overlay of lace.
The bride finished off her look with chandelier earrings to add a little bling, and the bridesmaids dresses were all different little black dresses. It was very chic, and they REALLY will wear them again!
Once the ladies were dressed and ready I took my bride out into the mountain air to meet her husband to be in the middle of the square. More and more couples choose to see each other before the actual ceremony. It’s a nice way to get the editorial portraits done before the wedding. A lot of my couples also find it relaxing to be able to spend some time with their sweetheart before the main event.
I thought the tartan plaid that served as an accent for this wedding was great. Very classic and super festive. It wasn’t just for the guys either. Touches were on the table tops, cake, and bridal bouquet.
The ceremony and reception took place at The Dahlonega Market Place, a fantastic venue on the square. It’s a very cool converted space that maintains industrial details with simple elegance.
This Atlanta wedding photographer always loves to drive up to the Georgia mountains to photograph a wedding! If you got engaged recently let’s talk about making your vision come to life. I want to be a part of it with you!
