In the midtown Atlanta neighborhood Atlantic Station rests the “classically-styled monumental arch” called the Millennium Gate. This is a great location to shoot an engagement session no matter the time of year. Next to the Millennium Gate is a picturesque bridge that serves as a wonderful backdrop for engagement photos as well. Couples are captured on the bridge with the Atlanta city skyline in the background. The results are images that are classic and timeless. Couples are always pleased with the look and style of these Atlantic Station locations. Kim and Jimmy joined me at the arch and bridge to celebrate their upcoming wedding with engagement photos.
Kim and Jimmy had great chemistry in front of the camera, and this shines through in their engagement photos. Kim’s candid demeanor and spontaneous smiles were complimented by Jimmy’s humor which kept her laughing. When couples are comfortable and natural in front of the camera, I am really able to get the best pictures. This couple made it easy. They came prepared with wardrobe changes which provided different looks for the session, and highlighted their fun personalities together. They just spent the day interacting with one another and enjoying each other’s company, while having their pictures taken. An awesome location, plus an awesome couple equals a photographer’s dream.
We at Cains’ Camera look forward to photographing the wedding of Kim & Jimmy on June 25th at the Douglasville Conference Center in Douglasville, Georgia. We send special thanks to Crystal Pink Events for introducing us to this wonderful couple. Congratulations to Kim and Jimmy!
Our first wedding of the season began with Samentha and Kevin at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, on April 12th, 2015. As a wedding photographer, April always worries me because we all know the saying, “April showers bring May Flowers.” Rain was expected, but fortunately, we had an overcast day, which ended up being perfect. Sylvia and I started the day by meeting the bride and groom at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Atlanta, GA.
Excitement was in the air as we captured candid moments of the groomsmen sharing stories about the groom on the hotel balcony. Kevin was nothing but smiles as his closest friends shared encouraging words before his wedding ceremony. Once we were done photographing the men, the limo arrived to drive them to the venue.
With the men photographed and out of the hotel, it was time to capture some photos of the bride and her bridesmaids. We photographed the beautiful bride in various locations in the hotel, including the staircase and the main lobby area. During this time we also took some bridal portraits, and individual shots of the bridesmaids. Several family members were also included in these pre-wedding shots of important women in the bride’s life.
The Wedding at the Callanwolde:
Once the limo arrived for the bride and her bridesmaids, Sylvia and I headed over to the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center to capture some detail shots prior to the 100+ guests arriving. The venue is beautiful with flower gardens, fountains, and a number of stunning backgrounds that are for great pictures. Before the ceremony began we were able to take more photos of the bride and groom, beloved family members, and wedding attendees.
As Kevin walked down the aisle, the audience erupted with cheers of pure joy! He was all smiles as he gave a couple of fist pumps in the air. The bride looked absolutely incredible as she made her way down the Callanwolde staircase with her father. The audience was energized throughout the entire ceremony and we captured plenty of cherished candid moments of the bride and groom.
Once the ceremony came to a close and the formal photographs of family members were complete, we took advantage of all the amazing backgrounds the venue had to offer. We ventured out to the fountain and main garden area to photograph the bride and groom, and we were also able to get a few more formal shots of the couple during the reception.
Samentha and Kevin were extremely fun to work with and it is always great to play a part in a wedding filled with such excitement. Cain’s Camera would like to wish Samentha and Kevin the very best and thank you again for choosing us to photograph your special day. Also, a very special thank you goes to Crystal Pink Events for introducing us to this awesome couple. Thank you to Lex Bozek for assisting with photography as well!
