Lizz + Andrew

I had such a blast shooting Lizz + Andrew's beautiful October wedding at the new and very awesome Howard Mansion in Kirkwood, Atlanta. The space was badass and the couple couldn't be more awesome. I'm so pumped I got to spend the day shooting them and their special day.

Zagat 30 under 30

I recently had the privilege of shooting Zagat's Atlanta 30 under 30 honoree list at a private event at Painted Pin. The list is full of friends, old and new, doing incredible things hear in Atlanta from the genres of food and drink to hospitality and non-profit. I am so honored to know so many of these people and call them friends and colleagues. I am also pumped to live in a city where all these youngin's are doing badass things. It is certainly a good time to be in ATL... 

You can see the full story here, but I have the outtakes, so you'll definitely want to scroll through and see how fun and weird it got! Who knew a Monday at 12pm could be so AWESOME??

A Dinner with Sean O'Keefe

So, here's the situation: You want to throw a party. You have the most perfect group of people assembled. You have a perfect vision of how the evening can and will play out. But, problem! Where on earth will this perfect evening take place? A restaurant? No, that's not personal enough. Your house? The cleanup is enough to say NO WAY! Catering? Too much hassle and oftentimes way too expensive. 

Thankfully for you, I have the perfect answer to this little dilemma. Why not set up your next private event under a fig tree in a beautiful garden with wine, candles, incredible florals, and a personalized 3 course menu? Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it's not, and the opportunity is right at your fingertips thanks to the one and only Sean O'Keefe. 

Sean and his staff go to great lengths to ensure that your private event suits what your looking for so that you and your guests can have the best event possible. Whether it's a dietary restriction or just a preference, Sean makes sure that your evening runs smoothly leaving all the fun up to you. It's kind of the greatest thing ever, right?

Rathbun's F&W Watchlist

Moving on to part 2 of my Atlanta Food&Wine Festival Weekend (see part 1 here)...  It's always a pleasure shooting events for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine. They are a pleasure to work with and their events are always beautiful! This most recent event was definitely my favorite combining two great arts: food + design. ADAC, Atlanta Homes, and the Rathbun brothers joined forces to collaborate upcoming designers with upcoming chefs, appropriately named The Watch List party. Designers + chefs were asked to come up with spaces and dishes that reflected each others ideas. For example (and my favorite), a beautiful pink and cream room paired with the most delicate fruit pavlova dish. Such a neat idea... Enjoy!

Caitlin + Nathaniel

I had the extreme pleasure of shooting Caitlin + Nathaniel's super cool wedding this past week and I could not have had more fun. Having met and started dating while both playing in the Carnivores, Caitlin + Nathaniel put music at the center of their wedding employing a bandmate with officiating and friends and bandmates to be official DJ's. They are seriously one of the coolest couples I've ever photographed and I love how their style was perfectly displayed in their nuptials. 

Congrats Caitliin + Nathaniel! you guys are amazing.
