You might remember Allison & Chris from when we posted their engagement session photos a few months ago! It was really great to finally be able to photograph their wedding – because I knew it would be crazy amounts of fun, lots of cool, and more awesome than most people can handle. And it was all of that.

Also. Have I mentioned how great it was to hangout with some folks from New Jersey? ha. Yes. The best.

Allison & Chris. You. Are. Awesome.

And thank you very much.

We met Christy earlier this year at Wedding Day Hooray – and she booked us right there, on the spot, signed contract and deposit… and then after some venue troubles, the wedding date changed a minimum of 10 times (okay not that many) – but they really worked with our schedule and somehow, amazingly, we were still able to photograph Christy and Brian’s wedding.

Oh yeah – not only was there trouble with the normal scheduling of the wedding date – but theirs was our last wedding of the year – because BabyRoX was due to be born two weeks later. We figured that was a good amount of time for a buffer – especially since first babies are often two weeks late. BabyRoX had his own plans and he decided to come two weeks early – right BEFORE Christy & Brian’s wedding!

Earlier that week, Leah had a pretty good feeling that BabyRoX was going to be making his first appearance – so we pleaded with him (as much as one can with a baby in utero) to either arrive BEFORE Friday, or AFTER Saturday. Amazingly – he obliged and arrived at 12:35am Thursday morning. Giving me all of Thursday and Friday before I went and photographed the wedding all day on Saturday. Absolutely Perfect.

We’ve been posting wedding previews all week. [Jordan + Ezekiel] [Judy + James] [Faith + Jeromy]

This is Christy & Brian’s Wedding Preview.

Christy & Brian. You. Are. Awesome.

Jamie & Max | Wedding Preview

Jamie and Max are incredible.  I still think that perhaps they have figured out how to clone themselves, because I don’t know how they manage to do everything they do.  Grad school, jobs, planning Pride events around the world, an active social life, traveling, cooking, taking care of pets.  Anytime I start to feel overwhelmed with how busy Mark and I are, I just check out Jamie or Max’s Facebook page for some inspiration and motivation.

We photographed their engagement session waaaaay back in March of this year – so we were both really excited that the big day had finally arrived!

One of my favourite things about photography is getting to know people I might not otherwise have met.  I don’t think Jamie and Max realize how cool they are – which kinda makes them even more cool – but these are two people who are really and truly making a difference in the world.  And I admire that to no end.  Plus, they are some of the nicest people ever.  I’m so glad to know them now.  It just makes my heart smile to know that Jamie and Max are in the world, making it better for other people.

Ok, but this is about their wedding.  Which was so much fun, and totally made me cry like 50 times, from the moment Jamie stepped into her dress, to Max choking back tears of his own as he said his vows.  The whole day was amazing.  First the bride and groom and their awesome wedding party all got ready at the W, cuz Jamie and Max’s friends had pitched in to get them a few nights there.  So cool.  The W is one of those places where I feel like I’m not dressed right, but it didn’t matter because I had my camera.  See?  I’m working!  I don’t have to look like I’m out on the town.  Jamie and Max and their awesome wedding party all looked the part, though.  So we traipsed around the hotel and got some neat shots of everyone.

The reception took place in the same room as the ceremony, and the transformation was truly magical.  Jamie and Max are lucky to have friends who plan events much larger than weddings, so they made it the transition look easy.  I’m sure it wasn’t, but I was too busy taking pictures to notice.  I must note that, as a voracious reader, I absolutely LOVED that the table centerpieces included books. Books galore!  How awesome is that?  And the food?  Breakfast!  For dinner!  My fave.

And then there was cake.  A dozen or more!  Each one different and each one delicious.  (Ok, I only managed to try…. 6 of them.  But between me, Mark, and the interns we got each cake covered.  I think the caramel was my fave.)

And THEN there was dancing.  YES!  I love dancing.  Apparently, so do Jamie and Max’s friends.  Fun times were had.

Jamie and Max – congrats to you!  And thanks so much for letting us be a part of your wonderful wedding.  It was an honor… and a blast!

CARE: Share Your Heart

Click Here for the Photo Gallery.

CARE is an amazing organization that I have been fortunate to intern at since August.  What does CARE do?  Here’s our mission statement:

Our mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources and experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. We facilitate lasting change by:

  • Strengthening capacity for self-help
  • Providing economic opportunity
  • Delivering relief in emergencies
  • Influencing policy decisions at all levels
  • Addressing discrimination in all its forms

Guided by the aspirations of local communities, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.

Yeah, that last line is my favorite.  Anyhow – CARE works in over 70 countries around the world, and has been working in Haiti since 1954.  We have over 130 staff members in our Haiti office, all but one of whom is Haitian.  So you can imagine the losses sustained by our staff when the earthquake hit.  Fortunately, none of our staff lost their lives – but they did lose homes, family members, friends, etc.  That didn’t stop them from coming to work every day and assisting with the disaster response.  And even though Haiti is no longer on the front page of our news, the rebuilding is still going on.  It’s a long, slow process.  Many of our staff members are still sleeping in tents – as are thousands of Haitians.

So while CARE USA’s fundraising team was busy raising money to help rebuild Haiti, CARE’s HR team decided to lead the efforts to raise funds for our staff – Share Your Heart.  Park Tavern generously donated the space, community members and Atlanta staff generously donated items for our silent auction, we put our noses to the grindstone and pulled off the event with only a month’s planning – and Mark took photos!

Which you can see.  Here.
