Lauren + Jonathan | Wedding Preview by LeahAndMark

– Posted by Mark

We’ve been hired to photograph many events at the High Museum of Art in the past – Halloween! Teen Night! – but until last weekend we hadn’t photographed a wedding there. A WEDDING! At the High Museum of ART! You know what’s Awesome? THAT IS AWESOME.

I brought along Alumni Intern Niki & current Intern Madeline to help me out with this amazing day. Yoga on a rooftop pool. Botanical Gardens. 1930’s car ride through town. Running around the empty High Museum of Art! And then our PHOTOBOOTH as well!

This is Lauren & Jonathan – and this was their wedding day.

Lauren & Jonathan. You. Are. Awesome.

    I move furniture everywhere I go during shoots. Even benches in a museum.

    Jonathan actually designed and built this chuppa. Those are about 600 crystals tied to ribbons.

    Lauren specifically requested this grass to be there!

    I’m wearing a Nike Fuel band! I took almost 19,000 steps that day and burned roughly 6,000 calories.

  • mark 13 Jun ’12 at 8:41 am

    Niki’s got guns.

  • mark 13 Jun ’12 at 8:42 am

    Right before the first look – I had to shoo these people away… ha.

    This is a 1930’s German roadster.

    They’re literally sitting in the trunk!

  • mark 13 Jun ’12 at 8:44 am

    These two were just walking by across the street – so we called them over to take a photo!

    Breathtaking, Lauren and Johnathan. And Lauren: all of the details. The Pinterest dresses? The bouquets? Splendid. Just splendid. L&M: per usual, these photos made me feel like I was at the High. Dare I say you pulled a few tears out of me? Love x a gajillion.

    Mark: this makes me giggle because of what you kept loudly proclaiming as we walked through the space…
