Biltmore Same Sex Wedding – Jemal and Kinte

Biltmore Same Sex Wedding – Jemal and Kinte

Same Sex Wedding at the Biltmore

After photographing Jemal and Kinte’s engagement session at the Millennium Gate, I was extremely excited for their wedding day at the Biltmore in Atlanta, Georgia. I’ve photographed at the Biltmore many times before and there are always an endless amount of possibilities. Guests entered the ceremony space with sounds by harpist Lyrika Holmes. The same sex couple exchanged vows surrounded by loved ones as The Modern Officiant officiated. The couple wore matching tuxes from Bespokture. Directly after the ceremony, I took the couple outside for portraits and also to have a moment to themselves. The decor by Unique Rose Events was amazing to say the least. Multiple angles of the reception space were captured to truly appreciate the amount of detail that went into the decor. Their wedding day was truly one to remember!

Their Engagement Story

Who proposed and how?
Kinte proposed during his birthday party. He had our family fly up for the party and proposal. He had me and two others play a guessing game that required us to take a double shot, spin around, and glance back quickly behind you and to see who could guess how many people were behind you. Of course I was last to go, after my final spin I was face to face with Kinte on one knee asking me to marry him.

Jemal and Kinte’s Wedding Testimonial

We found Jabari on WeddingWire and once we viewed his work, we had no hesitations. We selected Jabari because of his availability, price, quality, and personality. Jabari takes pride in his work, he’s patient, humble, and the results were amazing. Just from the sneak peek photos, everyone loved his work. We had an amazing experience and he was the perfect choice for us. I would recommend Cain’s Camera’s services to friends and family.

Callanwolde Wedding – Atlanta Photographer – Marie and Lamar

Callanwolde Wedding – Atlanta Photographer – Marie and Lamar

Wedding at the Callanwolde

Photographing a wedding at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta is always a pleasure because of the endless possibilities. In addition, a wedding outside opens up more possibilities because of the Callanwolde garden area. We were fortunate enough to have great weather throughout the day for an optimal wedding experience.

My day began with the arrival of the bride and the bridesmaids. Once the bride changed into her beautiful Winnie Couture dress, we took some photos on the beautiful staircase of the Callanwolde. Afterward, I took advantage of the window light for the lay flat details and Lamar’s prep shots with his tux from Miquel Wilson. Before the ceremony, Marie shared a beautiful gift with her mother for an emotional moment prior to walking down the aisle.

The day was a festive occasion with a variety of cultures present to celebrate the union of Marie and Lamar. From the ceremony to the reception the decor by Niq Williams was breathtaking. We were able to do a room reveal and a couple’s portrait prior to the guest entering the reception space. DJ Dusei played a variety of music representing the bride’s cultural background of Panamanian and Sierra Leonean. The wedding cake by For Goodness Cakes was amazing and I had a chance to taste a little sample (smile). From the ceremony to the formal exit, the wedding day of Marie and Lamar at the Callanwolde was perfect thanks to the planning of Sabrina from Crystal Pink Events.

Mari and Lamar’s Wedding Testimonial

When we met our planner, Sabrina from Crystal Pink Events, we had no hesitations hiring Jabari! I saw his work for other brides and the beautiful pictures he took for them. I wish he could have done our engagement photos. Cain’s Camera is a very reputable photographer and I felt that the price complimented the services as well. Looking at other photographer’s packages, I felt as if I was being robbed and would not have received quality pictures.

During the wedding day Jabari jumped right in, got the job done and it felt like he was there for us. Not to ONLY get the job done and go home. Cain’s Camera is also very personable. I would recommend Cain’s Camera to anyone in need of a quality photographer for weddings, family photos and etc. Jabari is fun and wants to ensure that every picture you could think of gets captured. He is very passionate and wants to produce the best pictures. Continue the great work! We weren’t able to meet in person before the wedding but it honestly felt like we met 10x before that lol! Because of Jabari’s personality and professionalism everyone was able to welcome you with open arms and we don’t do that too often. Also, keep that great energy you have, it’ll take you even further. Thanks again, Jabari!

Ashton Gardens Wedding – Atlanta Photographer – Maya and Lee

Ashton Gardens Wedding – Atlanta Photographer – Maya and Lee

Wedding at Ashton Gardens

Florida A&M University. I was extremely excited to be their wedding photographer for their November wedding at Ashton Gardens. We began the day with prep photos of the bride and groom at a hotel close to the wedding venue. The bride wore a beautiful wedding dress from the Bridal Gallery of Orlando and the groom’s suit tux was from The Black Tux. When we arrived at Ashton Gardens the couple decided to do a first touch instead of a first look before the wedding ceremony. The smile on Maya’s face is priceless as Lee prayed for both of them. After “jumping the broom” I swiftly moved the couple to the reception space for a stunning room reveal with the decor by Chelsea Floral. The reception dance floor was filled all night thanks to the music of Exquisite Sounds. I ended the night with a couple’s portrait on the beautiful staircase of Ashton Gardens. I wish Maya and Lee the best and thank you for including me on your wedding day!

What did you do for your first date?
Our first official date didn’t take place until July of 2015. We visited the World of Coca Cola in addition to the Martin Luther King history center. We ended our first date day with dinner at Midtown Kitchen in Atlanta, Georgia.

We plan to have an elegant fall wedding in Atlanta, Georgia. Our wedding will include greenery with hints of dinosaurs to portray our fondness of the Jurassic Park series.

Rhodes Hall Wedding | Atlanta Photographer | Buket and Aaron

Rhodes Hall Wedding | Atlanta Photographer | Buket and Aaron

Wedding at Rhodes Hall

To begin, this was the second wedding ceremony of Buket and Aaron as they had a ceremony in the bride’s native home of Turkey. They were both excited about the small wedding ceremony at Rhodes Hall. The wedding day began with getting ready photos of the couple at the W Hotel in downtown. I began with robe shots of the bride with her bridesmaids and some popping of champagne to get the day started. Additional prep shots of Buket were taken including her details and dress from Ivory and White Bridal Bridal Boutique. Afterward, I captured some getting ready photos of Aaron in his suit with some amazing window light. Finally, we departed to Rhodes Hall for the couple’s first look.

I’m a huge fan of first looks for many reasons, so I was excited to hear Buket and Aaron’s interest in seeing each other before the wedding ceremony. The couple had a moment to themselves and this was followed by completing all the formal photos. During the ceremony, the guests were serenaded by violinists from Mariwell Strings Quartet. After the ceremony the took advantage of the sun setting on the rooftop of Rhodes Hall overseeing downtown Atlanta. Party Time Productions provided music during the reception including traditional Turkish music for the guest to dance to. I wish you two the best and thank you for including me on your wedding day!

Wedding at Chateau Elan

Photographing weddings at Chateau Elan in Braselton, GA is always fun. There are an endless amount of possibilities throughout the day. Cenesha and Anthony’s wedding ceremony was hosted in the Atrium with an all-star cast of vendors (below). Capturing all the details was a must including that beautiful dress by New York Bride and Groom of Columbia and the wedding decor by Utopian Events. I wish you all the best and it was truly my pleasure to take part in such a beautiful day.

Their Story

How did the two of you meet?
We met at work. Anthony was already working there and I was the cute new employee 🙂 Our personalities just meshed, we understand each other.

What did you do for your first date?
We went to the movies and then out to dinner. We laughed all night. He was very funny and romantic.

Who proposed and how?
Anthony proposed to me on Mother’s Day weekend. My whole family came down to visit and celebrate all the mothers. He walked with me on the beach, away from everyone, got on one knee and proposed. It was very exciting and moving.

Lastly, can you tell us a bit about your plans for your wedding?
We plan to arrive at Chateau Elan probably on the Thursday before the wedding to relax before all the festivities start. People should start arriving on Friday and then the big day is on Saturday, May 18, 2019. We would like the ceremony to be moving and romantic but the reception to be a huge celebration. Our families love to party so it should be a seriously fun event. It might get a little hectic due to the amount of people who are involved but I know for sure that there will be some laughs and love all night.
