Callanwolde Fine Arts Wedding Venue & Weddings

Atlanta Wedding Photographer | Callanwolde Fine Arts Center | Wedding | LeahAndmark & Co.

A Callanwolde Wedding at Callanwolde Fine Arts is a great wedding venue because it has the ability to transport you to a different place – in a good way. The grounds have a certain feeling to them that isn’t like any other venue in Atlanta. I’m not sure what it is exactly. But it’s not any one thing individually. It’s the combination of everything that’s there. From the gardens, to the grassy areas, and the trees and flowers – to the building facade that’s reminiscent of a castle but not exactly. To the side patio area that almost feels like you’re in the French countryside. Or the grand staircase with the back lit stained glass windows. Or the classroom feelings of the up stairs getting ready spaces. All of it. It all transports you to a place that doesn’t feel so modern, or even so Southern the way that so many other wedding venues in the South tend to do.

Callanwolde Wedding Fine Arts Center

Callanwolde Wedding Fine Arts as a wedding venue lends itself to your creativity. You can really set it up to go in a few directions. Classic and timeless. Or a little big magical and fairy-like… or even medieval and whimsy if you like. Or just plain, flat out elegant (that’s a thing right?)

Your photographer will definitely have an endless supply of ideas at Callanwolde as well. Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate and it’s raining – there’s a good bit of cover to work with around the building – and you can always sneak a few minutes outside when the rain does take a break.

We’ve photographed several weddings at Callanwolde Fine Arts and they’ve literally always, always, always been amazing.

This is Lauren and Dean. Theirs was the third wedding of a three wedding weekend for us. For me really – because when I book three weddings for three days in a row – I also use a different 2nd shooter for each day. And I know – three weddings in three days is bonkers. I absolutely agree – and I absolutely don’t recommend it for anyone else. While I’m not out right bragging about being so badass that I can shoot three weddings in three days and other people can’t – I’m saying that I’ve done enough of these things that 3 x 3 is relatively, no problem.

A few things to think about as wedding photographer when you’re doing a 3 x 3:

  • Your energy and not being dead halfway thru the 2nd day
    • This is where Coffee and more Coffee is not the answer. Being properly hydrated (with water) IS the answer. More important than even food. Make sure you drink water and stay hydrated for energy.
  • Your team’s energy (2nd/3rd shooters)
    • Just because you can do 3 x 3 doesn’t mean that anyone else can. Plus – SOMEONE should be fully rested 😉
  • Having enough clean clothes
    • Look – most wedding photographers shoot 1 wedding 1 weekend. So they have 1 wedding uniform/outfit. Nevermind having 3. Sure you can throw them in the wash but timing can be tricky depending on the schedule of things. Get home at 12/1am and have to be at the next wedding the next morning…
  • Effectively backing up all of your photos
    • It’s tricky – you have to make sure you download all of your cards to a hard drive – and then BACK THOSE UP IMMEDIATELY. You do not want ANY question about whether or not you have backed up the files before you start writing over your cards. So you either have a million SD/CF cards or you double back up your files.
  • Charging your gear batteries
    • In the same way you have to stay hyper paranoid about backing up your photo files – you have to make sure that your camera/flash/gear batteries are charged full and ready at the START of each day. AND bring a charger with you just in case.

But that’s the bulk of it. I mean – Except for you possibly being too tired to function – each wedding is still only ONE wedding. They just happen to be right after each other.

  • Drink water and more water.
  • Back up your photos and back them up again.
  • Charge your gear batteries.

Done. Right? Oh yeah – it helps if you have a ‘work process’.

What’s the saying? Amateurs rely on inspiration – professionals get to work. I don’t and can’t rely on being ‘inspired’ every time I go to work. So I had to come up with a process that enables me to deliver a certain level of F*cken amazing in my sleep, without much effort. That removes the pressure to feel ‘inspired’ and frees me up to go make bags of NEW F*cken Amazing to deliver to my wedding couples.

Because they’re not all going to be one of my  best days – that’s reserved for the couple getting married – I just have to make sure I always deliver the agreed upon Awesome.

Kristen + Martin | Las Vegas Destination Wedding

Las Vegas; Destination Wedding; Hartland Mansion; Golden Nugget Hotel; Fremont Street Experience; Atlanta; Wedding; Photographer;

I’ve literally known Kristen for something like 47 years – so it was a real honor to be there to photograph her destination wedding with Martin – IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA! We (me and Kristen) grew up in Phoenix – so Las Vegas was never very far – but I actually haven’t ever photographed a wedding there – until now!

Kristen is actually one of my oldest friends (because you know – I don’t have many friends and that’s a whole other story) so… I honestly would’ve attended the wedding anyway – even if she hadn’t hired me to be her photographer 😉

BUT – if you’ve ever heard me talk about it – I would always rather be photographing a friend’s wedding than simply attend it. Because come on! If I’m photographing the wedding then I get to hangout with the couple ALL DAY LONG. Not only that – but I get to pull them away from people, I get their attention, ME ME ME ME. Right? ha.

Compared to if I just attend the wedding – sure I get to eat the food and party and stuff – but I maybe get 3-8 minutes talking to the couple. And that’s cool…. BUT NOT AS COOL AS BEING THEIR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!

Las Vegas, Nevada Destination Wedding Photographer

Insert Photos

It was only a few months earlier that I photographed Kristen’s sister’s wedding (Melissa + Dan) down in Phoenix, Az. – so it was also an added bonus of getting to hangout with her family twice in a short span of a few months. And any wedding photographer will tell you that it’s always great to hangout with clients that you already know. Because… you really do end up feeling like a part of the family. We stayed at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino – and their wedding took place at The Hartland Mansion and Wedding Chapel. Now that venue – it’s… all kinds of amazing. A total ‘Classic Vegas’ vibe circa Elvis circa Liberace feel – complete with lots and lots of candelabras…

Of course – being an Atlanta Wedding Photographer – it was a real treat to be able to fly out and photograph something a little different than what I’m used to – specifically photos on Las Vegas at night time! After their wedding we headed over a few blocks to Fremont street for the Fremont Street Experience (which is like… day time at night) – so lots of lights, lots of loud music, lots of drunk and not drunk people – you know – downtown Las Vegas. And that’s where we did another portrait session with the two of them because come on – when you have a destination wedding in Las Vegas – you NEED those night time portrait session photos right? Or else it’s just… desert photos, or casino photos or… IDK – but it seems like any wedding set wouldn’t be complete without some night time photos with all the lights and the lights and the lights. Did I mention the lights?

Kristen and Martin – You. Are. Awesome.

Unetta + Josh | Callanwolde Fine Arts Center Wedding

Callanwolde Fine Arts Wedding - Portrait Session

Have you ever wondered what is it about weddings that I like so much? Or other wedding photographers that gush and say things regularly like “OMG this wedding was amazing!” or “I can’t get over [insert blahblahblah]”.

Yeah me neither. I do know that for me – I like working with people. I like working with people that I like.

We have a “No F*ckers” policy around here when it comes to clients.

We make a living photographing weddings and we will photograph any wedding, anywhere, anytime – as long as you’re nice. Seriously. Our only rule is NO F*CKERS.

As in – we don’t want to work with horrible people. Your friends can be horrible, your family can be horrible – just don’t YOU be horrible.

But you’re not horrible.

You’re probably really great. And that means WE WANT TO WORK WITH YOU. (Which is a less desperate way of saying WE WANT YOU TO HIRE US.)

Unetta and Josh here? They’re not f*ckers.

Well. They’re f*cken amazing. (See what I did there? It’s early.)

Hey Unetta and Josh – You. Are. Awesome.

Wedding Workshop Series

You might be like me. You’ve been a wedding photographer for a few months, or years even – but you still don’t feel like you know what the f*ck you’re doing. Why doesn’t anyone respond to your emails? Why don’t they book you? Why are they booking someone else?! You’re a little frustrated and things would be a lot easier if someone would sit down with you, and make it… a little easier. If you just had the answers to a few questions – maybe, just maybe – being a ‘wedding photographer’ would stop being a hobby.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetAtlanta Photographer School

I’m Mark – a full time wedding photographer and I book roughly 93.5% of my inquiries. I photographed 53 weddings last year but usually only shoot about 35 weddings annually.

I can help you learn more about wedding photography than you probably ever wanted to know (at least from my warped perspective.)

Portfolio. Instagram. Facebook.

With a lot of help I also operated one of the largest photography internships in the country (but got too busy and stopped a few years ago.)

Now I’m offering a Wedding Photography Business Workshop Series.

I know – it’s not exactly a catchy name. WPBWS doesn’t really roll off the tongue either. Aw F*ck it.

Here’s the pitch.

I believe I’m the best photographer for my clients on their wedding day – and they believe it as well.

I am not the best wedding photographer of all time, ever – but I am the best wedding photographer for my clients, on that day. Period.

I couldn’t continue to do this if I didn’t believe that.

Also – these workshops are completely free to you.

Here are the workshops:

  • What Your F*cken Wedding Photography Website Should Say, Be, and Do
    • This is about your MARKETING. (How and why I get away with using f*ck all over my wedding website)
    • Your Website’s ONLY job is to get people to contact you. That’s all.
    • It doesn’t do any selling – that’s YOUR JOB.
    • I’ll go over every part – your bio, your pricing page, your blog posts, your portfolio
  • How to Book Wedding Clients.
    • How to respond to initial inquiries so people actually respond
    • How to lower your closing window down to 2 weeks or less.
    • How to talk to people like people and not like they’re $$$
    • Why no one emails you back
    • How to get them to email you back
    • How and Why I went from closing 25% of the time to 93.5% of the time.
  • How to Run The Wedding Day Like. A. Boss.
    • How to look like you know WTF you’re doing.
    • Simple but dangerous mistakes to avoid
    • What you should expect
    • How to handle EVERYTHING
    • All the things you don’t know.
    • How to get F*cken amazing shots NO MATTER WHAT.
    • How to get F*cken amazing shots NO MATTER WHAT. (repeated on purpose)

If you’re interested in any (or all!) of these workshops – please fill out the form below. I’d absolutely love to work with you.

And hey. Thank you very much. It’s a big compliment that you would even consider learning with me.

The dates are subject to my schedule (hey I’m still working) and will take place between now and the end of December.

Oh. And remember – any and all of these workshops are completely free – but limited to 5 people only for each workshop.

Carrie + Vikas | Weddings by LeahAndMark & Co.

Atlanta Wedding Photographer | LeahAndMark & Co. | The Foundry at Puritan Mill

It’s been a really, really, really long wedding season this year – and it’s still not over. From this point until January we still have three more weddings to knock out! And then we start back up in February. I know – it’s crazy times around these parts with all of these people getting married whenever they want! (Although I must admit that I’m not complaining 🙂

However – in the midst of getting caught up editing the many, many Fall weddings over the last few months – I wanted to start posting a few more weddings from this year. We booked/photographed the most weddings ever this year which equated to inversely blogging the least amount of weddings. So let’s fight the good fight and get back to work! This is Carrie & Vikas. Two crazy kids that had a crazy wedding and absolutely did things their way. Horse-head mask while riding a horse?! OKAY. Bridesmaids & Groomsmen all as crazy and fun as the bride and groom? YES. And of course, just like all Indian weddings, approximately three-hundred of your most intimate and closest friends and family 🙂

Carrie & Vikas – you’re crazy – but also, You. Are. Awesome.

We Make Amazing Wedding Photos for You

I met Nicci a loooooooooooooooooooong time ago. We worked at Starbucks together for a while back in… 2003? Who knows. Fortunately, the miracle of the internets let us keep in touch randomly and she remembered that I now photograph weddings. It was a big compliment and an honor that she and Greg flew me out from Atlanta back to Phoenix for their wedding.

Over the past six years I’ve been lucky to have attended so many ceremonies. It’s an amazing thing I get to do for a living.

Thank you Nicci & Greg.

Wish you were here! | by +Krisandra

Get ready! A post about how awesome my vacation was! Yep, I am going to post photos from my vacation. No models, no wedding, no babies… none of that! Just pure tourist type photos (ok, there are a couple people here and there). You know the photos that have “wish you were here” written across the top. Yea, those.

I am the girl who at 30 something years old took her first vacation, a real vacation. The type of vacation where my only worry was if my flip flop was going to get washed away by a wave that surprised attacked me.

My boyfriend and I traveled 10 hours to the Outer Banks of North Carolina (OBX) where we met up with a group of friends. And yes, I vacationed right as wedding season started. Why? Well, because at the beach it’s still considered “off season” and we got a great deal on a beach house! Although, this was not my first time in OBX. Last year I traveled to the same beach house to celebrate and photograph the wedding of one of my very best friends. You may have seen this image before.

But this time it was about collecting 10 lbs of seashells, flying a kite, reading a book, falling asleep poolside, watching sunrises, searching for sea glass, seeing a rainbow over the ocean, baking… actually relaxing! *see my instagram

I toured the Nags Head Fishing Pier.

I toured Jennette’s Pier.

And my big bucket list day trip to Rodanthe! Yep, from the Nicholas Sparks book turned into movie, Nights in Rodanthe. My girlfriends and I drove the hour to Rodanthe, North Carolina on the same path Richard Gere took in the movie to see the house, “Serendipity”! Although the house is not in its original location (it was moved a few blocks after the hurricane last year, yes they moved the whole house) it is still just as breathtaking as ever. Yea, yea, I like romance movies.

We stopped by the Rodanthe Pier on Hatteras Island. The pier was also in the movie. Even though it was still being re-built from the hurricane and quite wobbly we as far out on it as possible.

On the way back from Rodanthe we passed the Bodie Lighthouse. It’s pronounced like Body. Next year we plan to climb the 10 flights to the top. Told you these images are the stuff postcards are made from.

If you follow my *instagram or facebook then you have seen my week long journey, but if you don’t I highly suggest you should. Otherwise you might miss some pretty amazing stuff!

But, I am back refreshed inspired and ready to go! OBX, you haven’t seen the last of us! Countdown to OBX ’14 has begun.

Until then….

When ideas come to life | by +Krisandra

As a creative, I am always trying to push the limits of my ideas. I have notebooks with sketches, words, print cut outs. I collect wedding magazines. I have notes on my phone, images saved. I have tons of Pinterest boards. I have IDEAS. But, it’s one thing to have ideas and quite another to have those ideas come to life. It isn’t easy (at least for me). It takes planning, timing, confidence, but mostly it takes me.

Planning my FIRST styled photo shoot was probably almost as stressful as planning a wedding! Months and months and some more months went into this shoot. I had to find a stylist. I had to find a hair and makeup artist. I had to find the location. And I had to coordinate all this on one day that worked for everyone involved, even Mother Nature, for my ideal shoot. I had to make sure my ideas of what I wanted showed and do this in front of fellow photographer and friend, Philitha, all the way down from CT.

From the very first wedding I second shot back in 2006 I have been stuck in awe of the bride on her wedding day. I have yet to photograph a wedding where the bride didn’t make me at least teary eyed at some point during the day.
