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.)
