Shalli & Tre' - May 17, 2008

May 17, 2008 was the day Shalli Shepperd married Arthur Walker, III. The setting was The Carter Center, in the Cecil B. Day Chapel of the Ivan Allen III Pavilion, which overlooks downtown Atlanta. I was pretty excited, as this was my first Carter Center wedding. Shalli wore a beautiful Reem Acra wedding gown, showing lots of back! Shalli's wedding flowers were by Atlanta florist, Flowers So Beautiful.

Shalli & Tre' thanks so much for including me on your day.

Tamara & Kenny - May 10, 2008

Vecoma at The Little River in Snellville, GA was the setting for the wedding of Tamara Stewart & Kenneth Mason. Tamara & Kenny are such a wonderful couple & a pleasure to work with.
It always makes my job easy when there's a lot of laughter & fun going on.
With this wedding, there was definitely lots of it, especially in the bridal suite before the ceremony. The weather was absolutely perfect, even with rain in the forecast.
I also had the pleasure of having my new assistant, Mike Newman shooting with me. He did a great job.
Here are a couple of highlights from the day...

There was a lot of laughing going on!

I have no idea what they were looking at.

Mike captured this shot of Tamara & her Dad as they approached the aisle: One of my faves...

Hassan & Tedra's Engagement

Hassan Lewis chose May 2, 2008 as the day he would propose to his girlfriend Tedra.

Verve Lounge downtown Atlanta was the location. Initially when I spoke to Hassan, he gave me the details of his planned surprise. Tedra thought she was just having a Girl's Night Out with 2 friends.

While Tedra & her friends were seated in a private dining area, the hostess had instructions to put on a cd & while that played, the waitress was to present Tedra with red roses to get things started. As the hostess did that, I showed up pretending to be there shooting interior shots for the restaurant.

Also part of the plan was to have a few of Tedra's family members there as well. Hassan had t-shirts made with pics of family members on them for the family in attendance to wear. But as things do happen, Tedra's family couldn't make it, so Hassan decided to wear the t-shirts himself.

Once Tedra saw the roses, she had a pretty good idea of what was to follow.
