The Color Purple

In the midst of all this work that I still need to get done, I needed a break. So, me & the girls took a trip to NYC to check out Fantasia in The Color Purple. The show was awesome! I definitely recommend checking it out! I would actually like to see it again.

Only thing is, Fantasia is ending her run as Celie. I don't know who's taking her place, but Chaka Khan & BeBe Winans are slated to appear as Sophia & Harpo in January. Anyway, before the show we all got a bite at Amy Ruth's Restaurant in Harlem. The food was great. So, if you're ever in NYC for a show, stop by Amy Ruth's for some soul food!

Me & the girls at Amy Ruth's (w/my Uncle Mike), before heading to see the play.

This is the guy who gave me my first camera...My Uncle Mike (who lives in NYC)

Jari & Kevin - July 7, 2007

Yes, 07/07/07 was a big day for over 60,000 brides (rumor has it). I was fortunate enough to be chosen to photograph Jari & Kevin's special day. The ceremony took place at Zion Hill Baptist Church in Atlanta, with the reception following at The Westin Peachtree Hotel, in the Peachtree Ballroom.

Before the ceremony, I arrived at The Westin to get the "Getting Ready" shots & was floored by the view from the room. Jari & crew were in a 2 floor suite on the 70th floor & the view was overlooking most of downtown.
As it's never easy to pick/post all of my favorites, here are a few of many.


Monique & Rick - July 7, 2007

When Monique & Rick hired me for their 7-7-7 wedding, I had no idea about the numerical significance of the date & it's relation to gambling. But aside from the significance of the date, it's how they met that's so special. Monique & Rick met on eHarmony.com, the match making website. They made contact in August '06 & by September '06, knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together! The ceremony & reception were held at Buckhead's 103 West.

The Electric Slide Is Dead!

I was shooting a wedding a few weeks ago & was introduced to
The Cupid Shuffle.
Folks was on the dance floor working it out & I was left confused, because I had never heard the song before. The dj told me to check out YouTube to see the video.
I go from wedding to wedding & it's guaranteed that The Electric Slide will get played. I like The Electric Slide as much as the next person, but this is a nice change.
For those of you not familiar with Cupid, check out the video clip. (You'll need to mute the music from my website to hear the clip.)

The Atrium Garden in Norcross was the setting for the wedding of Sherri Hughes & Harrison Williams.
Everything about their day was simply classic, fun & intimate.
As usual, a few favs!

Charlene & Pierre - June 16, 2007

It was a pleasure to photograph the wedding of Charlene Rene & Pierre Ambroise, who were married June 16, 2007 at Cathedral of Christ The King in Atlanta. That was my first time shooting at this church & this building is absolutely beautiful. The reception followed at one of Atlanta's many premier wedding venues, 103 West in Buckhead. As always, here are a few of my favorite shots.
