Let's Be Real.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good bride & groom portrait, but weddings are all-encompassing. Each one embodies such powerful emotions—love, gratitude, tears, excitement, and awe. I appreciate getting to document these moments just as much as portraits, as they quench my desire for authenticity and reality in images. Weddings, y'all...they are real great, aren't they?

"Hey, I want that!" Wedding Albums

wedding, ProductsAmelia Lawrence1 Comment

Delivering albums this week...

Albums for the bride & groom, as well as parents, can be purchased with any wedding package (this particular one is a 10x10 leather bound lay-flat book from Azura Albums out of Norcross).

These puppies are clean and simple, durable, classy, and custom designed by yours truly. FRESH, to say the least. You can pretty much plan on keeping this album on your coffee table or bookshelf for many anniversaries. Can you tell I'm a fantastic sales person? Ok good, thanks for humoring me. But seriously, an album is a great addition to any wedding package; they are great gifts for parents, grandparents, complete strangers, you name it. All that to say, I'm super excited to be sending these out this week to my wonderful clients!

For more info, visit my contact page and I'd be happy to give you a quote.

Oh, and Happy Thursday. Go get a Margarita; it's almost Friday!

Special thanks to Chris + Allie over at the Reason for directing me over to Azura!

Newt & Ryan. Wedding. Marietta.

One of my favorite weddings, Newt & Ryan's big day greeted us with warm winter weather and soft lighting, resulting in some of my favorite shots to date. Not to mention, one of the coolest "First-Looks" I've ever photographed. I was really pleased with how all the images came out, not just in composition, but in emotion and story-telling. Special thanks to Jonah Fisher (check out the Fisher's work here) for getting some awesome shots as my second shooter. Anyway, I'll be quiet and let the photos speak for themselves...(Disclaimer: this is a longer post than most. Enjoy!)

Vanessa & Marcelo. Destination Wedding. Punta Cana

destination, weddingAmelia LawrenceComment

So about 9 months ago, I was presented the opportunity to take on my first destination wedding. Being fairly new to the wedding photography scene, my first thought was "Why the heck would someone trust me with such a huge once-in-a-lifetime task, having no experience with destination weddings?" I didn't know what to expect, I figured it would be a stressful journey of anticipation, a nightmare for someone who isn't great at planning (like me), and even a huge sacrifice to get down there. But regardless of the futility of my mind, and my lack of faith, I knew this opportunity would increase my experience, and benefit my business in the long run. And to say it benefited me, would be an extreme understatement. Not only was this wedding the most beautiful I have ever shot, with two of the most beautiful people I know, it was the easiest, most relaxing weekend spent with some incredibly generous, kind, and fun-loving people. Vanessa and Marcelo (and of course their amazing friends and family) made me feel like a member of the wedding party! And I've never had a couple have as much confidence in me as these two did. Loved every second of it, and I am beyond grateful for the opportunity they gave me to travel to one of my favorite countries, to do something I love, and to do it to the best of my ability. And a special thanks to all those who contributed to me getting there whether it was extra camera gear, luggage, or simply prayers. Thanks Vanessa and Marcelo for generously flying me down to enjoy all of the wedding festivities with you. It was a dream come true!
