Theodore Boys | Atlanta Family Photographer | Aharon Hill Photography

My yearly date with the Theodore boys is one I always look forward too.

They love each other so much, and are just contagious with joy.

This year was especially awesome, because Austin has grown up so much… yet is just as cute and sweet as ever.

And his little brother, who is equally sweet and awesome, is finally old enough to get in on play time!

Thanks for another amazing photo date, Theodore Family!

Stephanie and Jerald are Wed | Savannah Westin Wedding Photographer

Stephanie and Jerald’s wedding was equal parts beautiful and fun.

The perfect Spring weather and lush waterfront could not have been a more perfect compliment to Stephanie, who looked absolutely ravishing in her elegant plunge-neck gown.

She and Jerald exchanged vows under a rose-covered arbor… which may or may not have left me sniffling behind my camera:)

But once they had tied the knot was when the real fun began!

It started with a Derby Day Game (did you notice all of the bow ties? Even on the guests!), the winner of which was given a bottle of bourbon!

Then, the cutest little dude with some serious MJ dance moves entertained the guests (and let’s be honest, I was pretty entertained too!) anytime he had an audience.

Soon everyone was on the dance floor, and having the absolute time of their lives!

Later, Jerald serenaded Stephanie with a song, and she danced along.

At some point around this time, I was dance-walking around the perimeter of the dance floor trying to position myself for a photo when Stephanie turned to me and said, “These are our people. Each one of them is special to us.”

Suddenly it made sense why this was quite possibly the most fun I’d ever had photographing a reception.

This was a couple truly made for each other, and their friends and family knew it… and their joy was just pouring out on the dance floor in absolute celebration.

As it should be.

Happy Marriage, Stephanie and Jerald!

Abney Family | Atlanta Family Photographer | Aharon Hill

There is lots to love about this gorgeous family of 4, and I just knew that we were making some special memories when we met last week for our shoot.

As is almost always the case, it seemed that the more Anna and Cole showed their precious personalities, the more fabulous the photos became.

But what I really enjoyed about this family is that Mom and Dad wanted couple photos as well as family ones;  what a testament to their love!

Thanks so much, Abney Family, for choosing me to document these sweet memories for you!

Emma Kate Turns 1 | Marietta Birthday Party Photography

Well, I have been anxiously awaiting the day that I could post images of this absolutely precious little girl’s “Candyland” birthday party.

I say it every year that I have the honor of photographing one of the Bolen-girls’ soirees, and I’ll say it again: it takes a very talented, loving and creative mama to pull off a party of this scale, beauty and attention to detail.

One day these little girls will sit and marvel at the first class shin-digs their mama threw for them… I mean, wow! Diane, you are just an absolute fountain of creative and beautiful ideas!

There was no way to cover every inch of this party without posting at 100+ images, so I just chose my favorite details and portraits from the day to share with you.

From cakes and sweets galore, to a goody-bag bar, to a chocolate fountain, to goony golf, to a candy house, to a face painter… I mean, this party had it all!

And there is no doubt in my mind that Emma Kate enjoyed herself, even at her young age; the smiles say it all.

Big sister may have had to wait a month for her party (btw, can you believe Diane will do this all over again tomorrow? But with a different theme? She is super-mom!!) didn’t miss out on the fun; she donned a special smocked candyland dress, and fully immersed herself in all of the party games and goodies!

And at the end of the party, I was even able to capture a few precious sister moments between the Bolen girls <3

What a beautiful day! Thanks so much for choosing me to capture this gorgeous Birthday Party, Diane… and Happy First Birthday to Emma Kate!

 

Julie & Chris are Wed | Callanwolde | Atlanta, GA

Julie and Chris are such a special couple, and I had the absolute best time shooting their wedding in April.

They were genuinely happy to marry each other, and to celebrate their vows with their family and friends.

For the occasion, Chris brewed several kegs of beers, which were on the bar’s drink menu!

And when the wedding was over, the wedding guests were dismissed to a garden where they formed a heart shape, and a drone captured the amazing moment.

But my favorite part of the day was Julie and Chris’s first look– when they opened their eyes and saw each other silmutaneously for the first time. on their wedding day.

I am getting goosies just reporting on it!

I mean, wow.

My heart is full.

Thanks so much for choosing me to document your spectacular day, Julie and Chris
