The first time I got to know Colleen & Edmund was on the patio at Midway for drinks. I had recently shot their friend’s wedding, and being recently engaged themselves, they were ready to start thinking about what their own wedding might look like. After talking through potential venues we digressed to talking about Music Midtown, grad school, and dating long distance since Edmund was in grad school in Delaware. It was casual and felt natural- natural, as in “this is what ‘business’ should feel like”. We hardly talked about their wedding photography, but rather, we got to know each other as people.
Four months later I was excited to hear they booked Monday Night Brewing and that securing a photographer was next. ;) Their wedding day came a year later and I couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of it. At this point I considered Colleen & Edmund friends, other friends were going to be there as guests, another friend was shooting with me, and the wedding and reception were taking place at our friend’s brewery! All the makings of a very ‘Atlanta’ wedding.
