Andrew & Jasmine Part Two - The Prom

Well, it seems only fitting that I finished last year with Andrew and Jasmine for their senior photos, and started this year with their prom photos.

I met Andrew and Jasmine at City Club Marietta well before the limo showed up to take them away to downtown Atlanta for the Hillgrove High School Prom.

It has been great working with both of them. They are very photogenic. We had about an hour and a half to walk around and take photos. Although I never grabbed a shot of the crowd, it was the happening place for prom photos, because soon there was close to 100 people at the hotel taking photos.

To make matters worse, there was a wedding going on right next to us in the back of the hotel. That left us limited space to grab photos (considering they kicked us out when we tried to take photos inside) The ones of Jasmine on the staircase above were taken when we entered a back door with the caters and ran to the staircase to get the photo. Anything to get the shot!

I had walked the hotel early and find some spots for photos. We were able to grab some in the front, before the whole herd come over and filled this field. Always come with a plan.

Thanks to Andrew, Jasmine, and their parents for a wonderful afternoon!

Breanna Senior Photos

It was my pleasure to photography Breanna this past weekend for her senior pictures. This was her first photo shoot and she did a fantastic job.

We started at her home in the late afternoon and later moved on to Sope Creek to pose by the old paper mill just outside of Atlanta. The weather was beautiful but hot.  It was a pretty good hike to get to the location, but it was worth it. The mills were very cool. We thought we might be in trouble when a group of high school kids were having a water gun and water balloon fight in the ruins, but they were cool and stayed well away from us while we were shooting.

Our last stop was Marietta Square and the sun was setting fast. When we arrived, I had forgotten how busy the square gets on the weekend. Lucky for us the "good light" was available away from the crowds and we got some great shots before the end of the day.

It was an adventurous shoot and Breanna and her mom enjoyed it, at least I think they did.
