Charity

Atlanta Botanical Garden
My wife Barbara and myself met Charity, her mother Phyllis and her friend, and bridesmaid, Ashley at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for a bridal session on Memorial Day. It was a very hot and humid day and even at 9:00 AM the heat was oppressive. However, the Botanical Gardens is such a magical and beautiful place to shoot and the incredible beauty and variety of mini locations within the gardens make it ideal. It is one of my favorite places to photograph and I shoot there whenever possible.

If you are a photographer and are considering taking a client there for a shoot there are a couple of things you should know. First, call and make a reservation, they limit the number of photographers shooting simultaneously. Second there is a $150 fee for the privilege of photographing professionally in the park, the good news is that the normal admittance fee is $15 and the $150 fee entitles you to admittance for ten folks. So, take some family or friends, or allow the client to do the same.

Meanwhile, back at the bridal session... Charity was absolutely stunning in her wedding gown, just beautiful. I loved the feather head piece and her hair. Charity has very long hair and it was gorgeous up. We loved her dress, it was very flattering. We shot for about 5 hours, including a very much needed refreshment break halfway into our sessions. It was a fun session and I really enjoyed meeting Phyllis and Ashley and having enough time to relax, setup and take some nice shots. I love bridal sessions and so glad we were able to get this session in before her wedding; this was our third attempt, the previous attempts were rained out.

Hope everyone enjoys these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
