If you followed my Intern experience, you may have got a taste of the craziness that is my life right now. 5 years ago, I was a police officer living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Me and my wife found out we were pregnant and that it was time for a change for us – we moved to Colorado, I left the police department and become a software developer/network engineer. Over the next few years we had our Son – Kallin – and our Daughter – Aurora. In November of 2009, my wife decided she wanted to go back to school – 3 months later our house was sold, and we were heading cross country in a moving truck.

It should go without saying that I am a spontaneous person.  I love the adventures and thrills of life, and just the experience of living. It is an amazing thing that you and I experience everyday, and I don’t want to miss a minute of it.

What I didn’t know when we moved to Atlanta, was that it wasn’t just my wife who was making some major career-altering changes. I had been pursuing photography as a hobby for the year prior, and wanted to go full time with it, but it just didn’t seem like things were breaking my way. Business was hard to find, I didn’t feel like I was progressing like I wanted. Despite that, I decided that regardless of what I did – I needed to do something different and gave notice to my job that I was leaving.

January 1st, I was unemployed and looking for a new line of work, I had little realistic aspirations that it would be photography, but one day I saw an ad for an internship with this company in town. LeahAndMark.com – I read their blogs, saw their work, and was hooked. I applied, and as they say, the rest is history.

Over the past 3 months, I have grown exponentially, not only in my work, but also my vision, drive and purpose. I love people, and I love capturing their experiences and stories with my lens, and I want to make it my life to share those things in every way that I can. I would like to think that I will make my living in photography, but, thats not the point. The point is that I understand now, that regardless of where I make my income from here on out – what I AM is a PHOTOGRAPHER, and I can’t wait to continue writing that story in word and picture, and I am incredibly priveledged to continue that story here with LeahAndMark.

A few weeks ago I shot Robert and Jessica’s wedding. I had done their engagement shoot back in March, and I was itching to shoot my first post internship wedding. I can honestly say I have never worked so hard at a wedding, and thats saying a lot.

HEY. It’s a wedding IN Atlanta! No way! YES!

As much as we love all of our out of town weddings (MasschusettsIndianaTennesseeAlabamaCalifornia) we think Atlanta weddings are pretty swell. Not only that – but if the weddings are in Atlanta then that means we can bring along an Intern to help carry all of our heavy stuff… er, I mean, also photograph!

Rosalynn & Chris found us through one of our mentions on Scoutmob! and booked us right away last year. Not only did they have a fantastic 40 minute ceremony in a big Catholic church – their reception was at Kai Lin Art Gallery.

I brought along +Laura & Intern Liz to work the day with me and they did a bang-up job of photographing, carrying gear and getting me drinks. Okay. I got my own drinks (Leah won’t let me make it mandatory that Interns just bring me drinks!) +Laura’s been shooting like a crazy, crazy mad woman, working on a steady stream of photography gigs, but Intern Liz was able to find a second to post some of her photos from this wedding. Check them out HERE – and also what she thought about photographing a wedding on her 2nd day of the internship.

You know what season it is? It’s Wedding Season. You know what that means? It means we’re posting FOUR weddings this week. Two from North Carolina and one more back here in Atlanta! Some come back. Tomorrow. And then the day after, and then after that.

Rosalynn & Chris – You. Are. Awesome. Forever.

Thank you!
