Ahhh, so hard to choose just a handful of images to share from this Swan Coach House wedding in Atlanta. Intimate weddings & elopements are slowly but surely becoming my absolute favorite days to photograph and be a part of. As an Atlanta wedding photographer, Cass & Mike’s wedding day in August had all of the reasons why I love these small, slow wedding days so much.
We started their afternoon getting ready at the Goat Farm Arts Center in west midtown Atlanta. The light flowed perfectly in and out of the windows and there weren’t any nerves, just excitement. Cass had a beautiful scarf that her mom gave her when she was younger, so she used part of it around her bouquet and Mike used part of it as his pocket square. After getting ready, they shared a first look before heading to the spot for their ceremony. Their first look left Mike in shock! Cass looked stunning, so I don’t blame him at all! They exchanged vows and rings with just me, their officiant, and his wife as witnesses. I felt so, so honored to be there.
Not long after saying exchanging vows and rings, it started pouring. Thank you, Atlanta summer weather. But by God’s grace, we were already heading to the Atlanta History Center before we had a chance to get drenched. Cass & Mike scheduled two full hours of their Swan Coach House wedding day just for romantic portraits at one of the most beautiful and iconic spots in the city, The Swan Coach House. I loveddd having so much time to take creative portraits of them throughout the grounds of this gorgeous venue. And yes, that is President Snow’s mansion from The Hunger Games.
These two friends of mine are genuine, beautiful, and passionate people that I’m so happy to see on the journey of marriage together. Thank you guys for trusting me to document your day. It was amazing! One I’ll always remember.
Wedding & portrait photography rooted in a creative representation of the world and the beauty, truth, and people in it.
