Ruma + Yasir: Couple Session

After many months of scheduling and rescheduling, we finally got the chance to work with Ruma and Yasir, a great couple we got to know through Hassan's sister. We also finally had the opportunity to shoot in Rhodes Hall, a gorgeous 1904 mansion in Midtown.
Ruma is as I suspected — one of the sweetest girls we've met. She loves the camera and it's easy to tell that it loves her back.
Yasir was a little hesitant in front of the lens at first, but he warmed up quickly. They were both very comfortable and easy to work with, and choosing just a few to post was incredibly difficult.
Thanks to both of you again for working with us, and we hope you enjoy this sneak peak at your session! :)

Ava: Newborn Portraits

Last weekend we had the wonderful opportunity to work with one of our favorite couples again. We shot Marjorie and Jeff's wedding, pregnancy portraits, and now we had the chance to photograph their beautiful baby girl!
It's been a while since we've had the chance to work with a newborn, but Miss Ava was great. And we loved seeing Marjorie and Jeff again, and their immediate family was there to offer encouragement. Everyone was lovely and so easy to work with, as usual! We have such great clients!
As we suspected, Ava looked adorable in all the shots. Thanks again, Marjorie and Jeff! We're going to miss you guys. Enjoy! :)

Brent + Cary: Engagement

Brent and Cary are that cute couple you see constantly joking with each other, and their laughter is infectious. And you can also see how much they care about each other in their laughs.
We met this great couple through a mutual friend, Rashida (we'll get her pic up here one day!), and loved them from the start. So we were very excited to be able to shoot their engagement photos.
We all took a stroll through Piedmont Park, and the day was lovely despite the fact that it's July in Georgia. The pleasant weather made it that much easier to get some fun shots. That and they are always very easy to work with. :)
Here's some of the shots we had the pleasure of taking. Enjoy! :)

Karie: Bridal Session

Karie Gayle is the quintessential girl next door. She’s kinda quiet, very sweet and easy to work with. I got a call from her last week inquiring about a bridal portrait session, which she was eager to get done before moving to Orlando, FL. She told me she was married recently, and judging from the photos we got with her on Tuesday afternoon, she was a stunning bride! Karie was so easy to work with that it was difficult to narrow down her photos to just a few for our blog! What a pleasant problem to have. :)

We shot in the Little 5 Points/Inman Park neighborhood, one of our new favorite haunts. And I’d like to give a special thanks to Julie Ross, an artist who saw us shooting outside and let us into the Bass Lofts. This was a pretty neat place to shoot because, as you might notice from the photos, the building is actually a 1920s high school transformed into lofts. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend a little time in your lovely home!

And many thanks to Karie for a wonderful shoot! Enjoy!

In the empty hallway of the lofts. It was almost like a horror movie, but cool instead of scary.

The auditorium was pretty tiny, but very unique.

This shot seems very Parisian to me.

One of my favorites! Very reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe.

Great flare from the sun. Gorgeous bride!

In the sitting area in the lofts. Couldn't resist taking an aloof bride photo. Or a few.

Interesting angle.

As a tree hugger, I love this shot.

This shot is cool because Karie's husband's name is Vince, and she calls him Vinnie.

Marjorie + Jeff: Maternity Portraits

Recently we had the pleasure of working with some familiar faces at their home in Decatur. We receives a Facebook message several weeks ago from Marjorie (one of our lovely brides from fall 2007) inquiring about maternity portraits, and we were thrilled at the news of her pregnancy and the thought of working with her and her husband again! Their beautiful wedding ceremony was held in the north Georgia mountains on a brisk fall day, and they were both so easygoing that it was impossible not to get some beautiful shots.

Once again, they didn’t disappoint! Marjorie glowed through the entire shoot (which is easy to tell in her photos) and after some initial reluctance, Jeff seemed to enjoy himself as well.

Congrats again on your daughter Ava, and thanks again for the opportunity to work with you again!
