Elise + Michael | McDaniel Farm Park Wedding |Vlog

THIS was – IS – Elise and Michael’s wedding! YESSSSsssssss

The weather out here in Atlanta has been crazy. Bonkers lately. Ninety degrees, and then rainy and then 90 degrees and then BOTH!

So it was an absolute gamble and who knows what about Elise and Michael’s outdoor wedding. The ceremony was outdoors, the reception was outdoors – all uncovered. Sure you can bring in tents and things – but come on. You don’t have your wedding in a park so that you can do everything under a tent. Right? Right.

OH. And a picnic. They wanted a picnic for all of their guests – and if you think about “picnic weddings” – this is a great one. Lucky me – this is the second picnic wedding I’ve photographed! (See this one!)

So yeah. Oooooo this Park. McDaniel Farm Park out in Duluth, Ga. Lots to work with – but lots of ground to cover – so you better be up for the hike. AND ELISE AND MICHAEL WERE TOTALLY UP FOR THE HIKE. It helps that when Elise couldn’t wear her heels to a photo location – Michael would just scoop her up like… well – like he just married her and wasn’t going to let anything stop their day (or my photos!) Thanks Michael 😉

Also hey! Look that lush Georgia forest! Look at that field of tall dry grass! Look at… everything. Awesome. Amazing – OH YEAH.

We had a great time on this one (and yes, we almost always have a great time anyway – cause come on – our job is WEDDINGS.)

Elise and Michael? Thank you. You. Are. Awesome.

Lauren + TJ | Sugarboo Farms Wedding

Alright – you may have noticed that we love, LOVE, our wedding up at SugarBoo Farms in North Georgia.

Jade + Matt | Julie + Chris | Jocelyn + Jon | Sarah + Max

This is Lauren and TJ.

Their wedding was really special to us – and we were ridiculously honored to be there.

I will always remember this one.

And not just because my car died on the drive back home. It complete lost power while going through the winding roads in the pitch black North Georgia mountains. And you know – after a long 10 hour day and all that driving – you could easily complain, be frustrated – or have many other feelings… but really – after seeing Lauren and TJ get married – you just realize that there are many things that just aren’t that big of a deal.

My car got towed, and I got a ride that dropped me off at home in Atlanta around 3am. Not so bad, just a little inconvenient.

And really – Lauren and TJ – thank you so much for having us there with you.

Amanda + Carter | Little Gardens Wedding

You may have noticed (but probably not – because who ‘follows’ wedding photographer blogs anymore?) – that I’ve been posting a lot of weddings recently. YES. I have. So let’s get on with it.

This is Amanda & Carter’s wedding – going waaaayyyyyyyyyy back to April 4th, 2013. YES. It’s only taken me 3 full years to get this wedding posted on the blog!

Now – a few things to note – you may see Leah in these photos, and even a few of my son – because Amanda is Leah’s sister – and that’s why Leah’s in the wedding party.

Although I’m sure that Leah or I would love to be in people’s wedding parties – especially strangers. Forget that it would be weird. Forget that the joke would get tired after 5 minutes. Ah – forget I even mentioned it.

Here’s Amanda and Carter’s wedding from three years ago!

Amanda + Justin | Elijay, Ga. Wedding

Many different people hire me for many different weddings. Backyard weddings, church weddings, big ballroom weddings, farm weddings, plantation weddings, warehouse weddings, etc. Some of my favorite weddings are the smallest weddings.

Because when I’m one of only 10 people that are invited to a wedding – it’s kind of a big deal for me. I’m a stranger to these people and they want me to be there with them. Yeah – that’s really special. Lindsay and Chance had me at their mountain wedding a while back and recently Amanda and Justin invited me to theirs.

They brought me along for their wedding day up in the woods of North Georgia – and once again – magic. See that photo up above? YEAH. Magic.

When there are only 10 people and I’m one of them – it usually means that I’m not sitting in the back with the help. It means that I’m probably going to be sitting at the family table – and that’s not lost on me. It’s a big deal. And even when I’m at my most snarky and tired about my job – I’m never ungrateful that people invite me into their lives for such a loving, emotional, and special event.

Hey Amanda and Justin – thank you.

This Post is About Having a NYE (New Year’s Eve) Wedding

Let’s get to it.

If you’re planning on having your wedding on New Year’s Eve – it better be a great party. Like a GREAT PARTY.

Otherwise you fail your guests. Sure – you can take comfort in the whole “my guests just want to celebrate us getting married blahblahblah” – not on New Year’s Eve. Of course they do want you to be happy and get married – but chances are good that they also, definitely want a great party. A great NYE Party. So that’s what you’re putting on. OR ELSE.

Or else you’re putting on some low key affair and asking people to have a low key NYE. That’s cool too. If you’re inviting 30 people.

If you’re inviting 200 people – party the f*ck up and make it happen. You’re the one who hijacked their holiday.

But no pressure.

IT’S GOING TO BE AWESOME AND AMAZING! (check out the slow-mo sparkler exit in the video below!)

You just have to do a few things (even though I don’t like saying ‘you have to do this…’).

But first – check out this video from a NYE wedding/party we photographed earlier this year.

1. Have your ceremony at an appropriate time.

Because really – you’re asking people to stay until at least midnight – and probably more like 1am+. So don’t have your ceremony at 5pm. Later, 7 or 8pm is great.

2. Bring on the New Year’s Celebration.

When you have your wedding on other holidays (4th of July, Memorial Day, etc.) you can probably get away with making it ONLY about your day and your wedding. Mmmmm, not NYE. Your wedding is on NYE. So have a NYE party – with the accompanying stuff – hats, noise makers, tiaras, whatever you can find – stock up and have plenty. Because then it’s also a semi costume party (and everyone loves a costume party where they didn’t actually have to come up with their own costume.)

3. No dry wedding.

IDK. Sorry I have to say this…. uhhhhh… seriously come on – NYE? Dry wedding? WTF. Just no.

4. Don’t be cheap. Don’t skimp. 

Okay. Usually I’m all like – hey it’s your wedding! Do whatever you want! Go budget style. Go REALLY budget style. But not on New Year’s Eve. It’s your choice to have a wedding on New Year’s Eve – it’s your choice to make it as great as possible for your guests – and if it’s lame – that will be YOUR CHOICE as well.

But again. No pressure.

Stephanie + David | The Barn at High Point Farms

We photographed Stephanie’s sister’s wedding about three years ago – so it was really great to be able to be there with their family again for another great day. And wow – what a beautiful wedding day it was over at The Barn at High Point Farms. I can’t believe it took me this long to finally book a wedding there. The grounds are amazing and they’re basically everything and more when you want your wedding in a barn on a farm in the North Georgia mountains.

Stephanie & David – You. Are. Awesome.

We Make Amazing Wedding Photos for You

With over 50 weddings booked for this year alone – we have the good fortune to have seven of them taking place at Sugarboo Farms up in North Georgia. First – it’s always nice to get out of the summer heat and head up to the mountains. Second – Sugarboo Farms is a unique venue, hidden in the mountains where you can literally have all of your guests essentially camp out and party all weekend without anyone bothering you.

The truth is – we know that any couple that decides on Sugarboo Farms for their wedding venue is going to be ALL KINDS OF AWESOME.

It’s true.

We first discovered the venue when Sarah & Max had their wedding there last year – and now we know that it’s always going to not only be a party – but a different party every time we have a wedding there.

This is Jocelyn & Jon – and we really wanted to flex our storytelling muscles on this one. So I brought along Ellie & Kezia to help out, told them the super secret instructions for wedding photography magic – and we went to work.

Thank you very much Jocelyn & Jon – You. Are. Awesome.

11 Months Later or Walking On My Own | +Jo

11 months. That’s how long it took me to learn everything I know about photography. The key, though, is I will never stop learning.

The past 11 months took me for a whirlwind of a ride. This time last year I didn’t know much more than ‘if I spin this and press that, it changes the way the photo looks.’ Not the greatest start when you are desperately looking for a job opportunity. I was petrified the first time Mark stuck me in front of a modle, Ally from my season, and said “take her picture, direct her.” I couldn’t comprehend the words. I froze and forgot how to lift the camera to my face in order to press the trigger.

 

 

 

 

Now, I shoot weddings, set up and photograph styled shoots, network at every appropriate opportunity, help teach interns, and generally take on any challenge without a bat of an eye. I’ve grown in these 11 months. I’ve worked my butt off and I have an amazing portfolio to show for it. None of this would have been possible if it hadn’t been for Leah and Mark taking me on as an intern and then asking me to become a ‘+.’

 

 

 

 

I will always be thankful for every opportunity Mark passed my way. It meant I never became distracted and began wondering away from photography. Inadvertently, I concentrated on mastering everything about photography. Have I mastered anything? No. And I never will. Because I will always be learning.

 

 

A couple years back, when I was taking a stage combat class in college, I became very frustrated with myself because I wasn’t completing the choreography to perfection. My anger flared up and Professor Noyes called bullshit on me. He asked me “Why are you acting like this?” “Because it needs to be perfect.” “Why are you seeking perfection? That is something only god can do, and is also what makes us human. We can’t reach it, but we can always learn from our imperfections.”

 

 

 

So,

I prefer to always be the imperfect student rather than the stagnant master.

What is the next step for me?

 

My own photography company.
I’ve done freelance art and design for the past 7+ years but running my own photography business is a brand new adventure. Just like how photography became a brand new art form to me 11 months ago. I can’t stop exploring the possibilities. The best part? The possibilities are endless – as endless as my imagination.

 

 

I’ll always hold Leah, Mark and the LeahAndMark.com family near to my heart. When push comes to shove, these people are amazing and I don’t want to loose any of them in my life. We were walking down the same path for a little bit, now mine is pulled off in its own direction. Thank you, everyone, for making the journey so much fun.

 

My adventures continue over at YourMojoByJojo.com
Funny name. Amazing photos. Come on by and check out what’s going on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And remember, anyone can be an artist, it’s just a matter of how much of your heart you are willing to show.

Kelsey & Adam: Preview

You might remember seeing Kelsey & Adam from when we posted their engagement session a few weeks ago. Leah & I spent this past weekend in Savannah to photograph their wedding! Since I grew up in California and Arizona – this was my first time in Savannah – and it definitely lived up to its reputation of awesome. The wedding took place at the Dresser Palmer House just off of Forsyth Park, and Leah and I stayed at the Park Avenue Manor just around the corner – and we highly recommend staying there.

The Wedding! The Heat! The Humidity!… and then the Monsoon Rain! The weather participated nicely. It didn’t downpour until after the ceremony and everyone was inside full of food and drinks. Outdoor July wedding in Savannah?! No. Problem.

It. Was. Awesome.

Here are the preview photos. Congratulations Kelsey & Adam!
