When I first met Ashley and Sean, I knew we would make a perfect team. Ashley with all of her excitement, Sean with his laid back demeanor, and my experienced photographic vision. Upon getting to know the couple over the next few months, I learned Ashley was a DIY (Do It Yourself) bride. She mentioned to me how she was a huge fan of Pinterest and a number of wedding details would be her creations. I made note of this, and informed my team to keep this in mind during the wedding day.

The Ceremony

Ashley and Sean’s wedding took place at First Mallalieu United Methodist Church in East Point, Georgia. Prior to the future Mr. and Mrs. arriving, we photographed all the details the couple would not notice during the actual event. Within a matter of minutes the soon to be bride arrived with her bridesmaids and flower girls. Once dressed, I photographed each individual bridesmaid, the flower girls and additional details worn by Ashley (i.e., dress, shoes, bouquet). After the photographs of Sean and the groomsmen, it was time to take our place for the wedding.

There was plenty of emotion from guests as Ashley walked down the aisle with the choir singing in the background. Ashley’s mother gave her a heartwarming kiss on the cheek as she made her way to the alter. Ashley and Sean could not help but smile at one another during the ceremony as their day had come. We photographed a number of candid photos of the guest and couple so that fond memories of the wedding day could be remembered.

The Reception

Once the formal photographs were complete, we drove to the Atlanta Airport Marriott for the beginning of the reception. Prior to the guest coming entering the reception area, we were able to capture detail shots. This included the smaller details that Ashley created herself. As the guest entered the reception space and were seated, there was a huge surprise planned by Ashley: a drum squad. Sean was a drummer in his college years and the look on his face when he heard the sound of the drum squad in coming in from the hallway was priceless.

After dinner is served and the dancing begins, I will always ask the newlyweds if they would like to take some additional photos outside. Ashley and Sean obliged and we walked right outside the venue for some night time photos. The wedding day is very long for couples, but in the end I know the images we take will last beyond a lifetime.

Congratulations Ashley and Sean on your wedding and thank you for choosing Cain’s Camera. You two were a wonderful couple to work with and we wish you the best!

How They Met

We were introduced by an old mutual friend. Over the years our relationship continued to blossom. We have been together three years and five months with nothing but pure happiness. On April, 20th 2014, Sean proposed to me in front of twenty of my family members at Easter dinner. I was shocked because he was suppose to be at work. Needless to say, we are each others soul mate and best friend. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!
