One of the toughest tasks when photographing any brand is making sure you’re on the same page as your client. If you’re speaking different languages, then the images won’t be useful. Communication is key.

Branding Portraits with Atlanta Photographer Meredith Davis

I got super lucky when I bought my house in 2018 for many reasons. One of the best? My photographer friend Molly Weir lived right down the street! Cue endless photography, Harry Potter, Marvel nerd chats, and impromptu photo sessions!

Lifestyle Portraits with Atlanta Photographer Molly Weir

I was really blown away when I got this inquiry. I had actually contacted Jasmine’s sister about her interior decorating business and helping her with images for her website and social media. A few days after that initial conversation and Jasmine gave me a shout about doing engagement photos for her and her fiance, JC. […]

A Classy Engagement Session in Downtown Atlanta

How often do you find yourself distracted or looking at a mountain of activities with no idea where to start? Do you ever start working on a blog post or editing a design, then you get an email notification, and the next thing you know you’ve searched Google for an hour to answer that client, only to realize you missed your window to finish that original task – which was – wait, what was I working on again?

Laurel & James’s Up Themed Engagement Session

One of the more challenging things when working on location is figuring out where my subjects should change their clothes. It’s a bit harrowing. So if there isn’t a dressing room handy, how can you change outfits without becoming a momentary exhibitionist?

How to Change Clothes During a Photo Shoot

“We don’t really like posed photos; we really want a lot of candid shots.” – Every engaged or soon to be married couple – Ever. I agree that truly candid images are hands down, the best.

Are Candid Photos Really Candid?

Brand portrait sessions are all about capturing my client’s personalities, which I find is best done through sharing stories. I always end up amazed by my clients. Sometimes there are quirks that make me do the confounded doggie head tilt, but usually, it’s, “DUDE! That’s awesome!” Other times it’s a moment to be snarky and […]

Branding Portraits with Palmer House Properties of Atlanta, GA

I’ve known Alyssa since middle school. When I heard that Blake had finally popped the question and Alyssa had finished filling me in on the story – I immediately offered to do their engagement session. When they asked for an artsy, urban look – I knew the perfect location.
