I Almost Caught My Sweater on Fire at The Atlanta Wedding Creative Photo Shoot

Friday, January 20, 2012

Yesterday I completed a 6-hour shoot with the visionaries of The Atlanta Wedding Creative. I've known this crew of three for a few years and I'm really excited that they decided to team up for a new venture. Michelle and I have worked together on numerous weddings and she helped to plan my surprise 30th birthday party. Brian is all about the GLAM and he was the man behind planning my successful gallery showing in 2010. Lisa is the "go to" woman for custom letter press cards of all kinds.

For location, the group decided on the newly renovated Renaissance Atlanta Midtown (formerly The Palomar). Of course the shoot had its surprises. First, I fought the wind, the cold, and the water fountain on the terrace. Then, I managed to dodge hotel guests and security guards to get the head shots done. Next, I rearranged some furniture in the restaurant after a concurrent video recording threw me a curve ball. Last, I tiptoed around the candles on Michelle's table and almost caught my Club Monaco sweater on fire! It wasn't all craziness, actually it was quite organized thanks to the team. We kept things light-hearted and joked mostly about the industry and our busy lives.

Brian and Michelle came up with two separate table designs while Lisa designed complimentary stationary. I've features a few images in this post because the rest will be featured in an upcoming premiere wedding publication.

I want to thank Eric from the Renaissance for feeding us, for letting us use the Presidential Suite, and for the unlimited access to the hotel. Others that helped to make the day a success:
