The Carter Center Wedding Ceremony
This is Chelsea and Walt – two ridiculously amazing people that somehow found me (actually their friend referred me and you know it’s ALWAYS nice when someone refers a client to us… because that’s just… AWESOME!)… where was I… Oh yes. Chelsea, Walt – amazing – people – their ceremony actually took place at The Carter Center and then the reception was on the roof at Ponce City Market.
I first talked to Chelsea… over a year ago – in fact we were traveling the country in our RV for two months when she and I talked. So we never actually met until a few weeks before their wedding – lots of trust with my clients because I rarely take meetings anymore and most of the deal making is thru phone calls, emails, and text (I like text cause then I can send all the crazy emojis I like 😉
But YES! Wedding! Ponce City Market! Carter Center! Let’s refocus here.
Look – wedding vendors come in all… well there are many different kinds out there. Some are beginning, some are so-so and some are properly respectable. I probably fall somewhere in between all that mess and I probably slide up and down the scale – but for this one, Chelsea and Walt definitely hired proper villains. Er – I mean wedding PROFESSIONALS.
The team of wedding vendors they put together – well – we were all amazing and everything went off flawlessly… and even when it didn’t – Chelsea and Walt were super super SUPER about it all. (Because there are always hiccups on a wedding day you know.)
Ponce City Market Wedding Reception
What’s great about Ponce City Market is that it’s basically a mini-city. Seriously. So you can wander all around it and never get ALL the photos. There were photo ideas/locations I came up with that we just didn’t have time to get to – and we still covered a lot of ground! Of course – Atlanta in general is a great city for locations because it’s… endless really. Right? Wedding Photographer! (that’s just SEO junk right there – pay no attention.)
You know what else really participated that day? The weather. Ridiculously good. It got a little warm for a second – but that’s about it – we were able to get so many outside photos because there was a breeze and none of us were melting our faces off. (Always a good thing when you have people getting married you know.)
Oh yeah – and another thing about having a wedding at Ponce City Market – they have lots and lots of people to help you get around the property. I mean… you probably have to have those people (security) especially since we went through all these hidden back corridors and things that I’m sure I’d normally get arrested for going thru – and it’s always nice to not get arrested. Trust me on that. Wait. What am I talking about?
Atlanta Wedding Photographer
SO basically my job the entire day as a wedding photographer is to see photos and then capture them in my camera. Right? Right. Obviously (or not so obviously) – the more there is to work with, the easier my job is. But what there is ‘to work with’ is different for every photographer. Some photographers like… boring things. Others like interesting things. (I’m totally throwing shade.)
But now I see that I’ve hit my SEO 500 word count so let’s finish this thing.
Chelsea and Walt. You. Are. Awesome.
