To be able to spend the day behind the camera is Ric’s happy place…to be able to coordinate some of the best of Atlanta’s wedding industry people to come together for an amazing photo shoot…well, that’s my happy place. It was a great two days earlier this month at the Ritz Carlton Atlanta. We were asked by the hotel to photograph their newly renovated lobby and bar area…and we did it in style!
Lauren at Priscilla of Boston was gracious enough to lend us some of their incredible creations and accessories and they were beyond gorgeous. My personal fave was the Sex and the City type tea length retro dress. It was perfect on our first day’s model, Hannah. Steve and Mika from the Moore Agency did the hair and make-up and transformed the lovely models into breathtaking brides. Catherine and Kathleen from Arrangements worked their floral magic and created such a variety of bouquets to compliment the gowns. They were incredible. Whitney, our model for day two is also an upcoming bride, and we loved having a dress rehearsal with her for when we shoot her own wedding in June! All of this happened with the beautiful Ritz Carlton as the backdrop…quite an amazing two days.
Personally, I adored the “flowergirls” who modeled with the bride on day one. My sweet daughter, Mara, was one of the little ladies, and one of her little bff’s Lillian was her partner in crime. I know I’m biased, but I think the shots we got of the flowergirls are some of the best. (I’m partial to the brunette cutie…!)
Thanks to all our amazing partners for this fantastic shoot. Here’s to many more fun shoots in 2010!
