This summer marks the end of a string of Atlanta weddings for me, and leads straight into a fall full of travel.  Now, aside from journeying to Tybee Island with Alumni Intern Sonya, I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to shoot a wedding yet.  But come 2012, I’ll have shot in California, Florida {twice}, and Michigan.  That may not seem like a big deal to you, but you’d be wrong.  :)

Alice & Joel’s wedding was here at home in Atlanta, at the amazing Le Bam Design Studio, a somewhat Alice in Wonderland/fantasy-themed space, full of tiny doors {like the Chick-fil-a Dwarf House, but BETTER}, fairies, decorative moss, and a huge tree in the center of the reception space. {And no, it escaped no one that the bride was named Alice in a Wonderland-themed space.}  And Alumni Intern/Contributor Andre and Current Intern Tricia accompanied me.

The couple picked Rev. Dawn for their ceremony, and let me take a moment to sing her praises her, because she’s fantastic.  She’s an interfaith minister who speaks English, French, and Spanish; I’ve worked with her on a number of occasions, now, and I’ve never met a cooler or more well-spoken wedding officiant.  </end singing>

Alice & Joel also made their own wedding cake.  Let me say that again: THEY MADE THEIR OWN WEDDING CAKES.  And not just any cakes, one Key Lime and one Lemon.  Ah-mazing.

We got the chance to shoot the getting ready shots in a salon again, the fabulous {yet cozy} G Hair Salon in Atlanta.  There was a ton of room for the three photographers to move around in, though, like always with a room full of mirrors, there were some Matrix-style moves going on with us trying to get out of each others’ shots and to get our own {hair product pun intended}.  That’s where teamwork comes in handy, kids.  Remember that lesson from kindergarten?  It still applies.

Thank you, Alice & Joel.
