My friends generally know that I often have busy weekends. However, this weekend was my first wedding double-header in a while- one Friday and one Saturday. On top of that I had a maternity/family session on Sunday and a 3-month baby session on Monday. Needless to say I was a bit nervous about it all week. My main fear, oddly enough, was that I throw my back out at the Friday wedding and was unable to shoot the Saturday wedding. That obviously didn't happen, but I did find out for sure that I have begun getting tennis elbow from lifting about 15 pounds of camera, batteries, battery grip, flash, and wireless flash trigger over 1,000 times each day with poor form by my right arm. Both nights I actually had to ice my elbow! I'm getting old!
Both weddings went great. If you were outside at all this weekend you know the weather was some of the best Atlanta has to offer. Blue skies, warm days, cool evenings- just about everything you could ask for in a wedding- both of which were outdoors! I'll give more dedicated posts on both weddings once I get through editing the photos, but I will say I had a ton of fun all weekend. Rachel and Andy had such a fun group of guests and bridal party at Park Tavern that I ended up spending most of my time on the dance floor!
Here are a few photos from Rachel and Andy's wedding:
Lindsey and Mario had a beautiful wedding at Donaldson Bannister Farm in Dunwoody- actually the very first one that the venue has seen! I initially thought they "just" planned the wedding (note: the word "just" is in quotations), but after the ceremony Mario told me the ceremony site- a beautiful grassy garden area on the property- was a swimming pool just about a month ago! He laid all of the sod and did the landscaping himself! Here are a few from their wedding:
Now here are a couple from the Sullivan family shoot followed by two from my sister's 3-month old- Hudson. I know I know- I'm an incredibly efficient blogger! I say that jokingly- more on these 4 events to come!
