Icing on the Cake

So, I’ve been sharing some shots from my photo journey this past Saturday.  The last stop on the tour was to shoot a wedding at Big Canoe.  For those of you who think wedding photography is fun and romantic, well it can be fun.  On the other hand, it is A LOT of work!

It was a beautiful day to be in the North Georgia mountains.  The temperature was cool and the skies were sunny.  After eight hours and over 1400 shots, the event ran its course.  I have to say, there was very little drama (of which, I am thankful).  It all went smoothly but it sure was a full day.  If you ever want to try doing an event like this, be ready to put in lots of hours and be sure you don’t miss the shots of grandma and the little kids.  There’s nothing unimportant on a wedding day!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
