The Wedding at 200 Peachtree:
Sylvia and I headed to downtown Atlanta to photograph the wedding of Krystal and Jamini. The wedding was located at 200 Peachtree and we arrived early to capture the fine details set up by Jade Lee Events. We captured outside shots of the venue, the ceremony space, and floral arrangements. After our detail shots, we sought out the bride and groom as they both prepped for their big day. Prior to the ceremony, we photographed candid family moments. This included the groom with his parents, and the mother of the bride seeing her daughter for the very first time dressed for the day.
One of our goals for the wedding day was to get candid photos that expressed emotion. The best time to achieve this goal is during the wedding ceremony–from the bride making her grand entrance, to the couple’s wedding vows, these candid images were full of emotion.
Something that I love about downtown Atlanta are the buildings. We took advantage of the beautiful backdrop directly after the formal family photos. Sylvia and I had a small amount of time before the couple had to head back for their reception introductions, so time management was key. We led the couple outside and took a photo with the Westin Hotel in the background. We also shot pictures in front of doorways to historic buildings, and scenic water fountains. We finished our portraits and headed back to the venue for the newlyweds to be introduced to family and friends at their dinner reception.
The wedding reception was a blast! Everyone was on the dance floor throughout the entire night, mainly because of the music provided by DJ Mark Battle from One Sound Entertainment. It is always nice to see guests having a great time on the dance floor, as this is a highlight of the night. The dancing, fun, and excitement also makes for good photography opportunities. As the night came to a close, Krystal and Jamini had a formal exit directly outside the venue with sparklers. We look forward to photographing these two for their one-year anniversary, and it was truly a pleasure to work with this special couple on their wedding day.
How They Met
We met in college. We both joined Alpha Kappa Psi professional business fraternity. Our chapters were very close and we met at an event. One thing led to another and we eventually began a long distance relationship between Birmingham, AL and Jacksonville, AL. After two years, we both graduated from college and got jobs in Atlanta, GA.
