Anne and Ryan

I've known Anne and Ryan for a few years now, so when they asked if I would take some photographs for their "Save the Date," I was honored. We chose a beautiful Saturday in late afternoon to drive south to Serenbe, a progressive, farm-centric community on the edge of Atlanta, and captured some photos in the golden hour.

Being friends, and tasked with capturing an important memory in their relationship, I wanted to make sure that we left with some amazing photographs. I was excited, and relieved, with how much they enjoyed them. And, we had a lot of fun in the process. Below are some of my favorites. 

Towards the end of the shoot, Ryan was kind enough to allow me to take a photograph of him for my portrait project.

I started the shoot with my 17-70mm zoom lens. I always default to it for it's flexibility, but I found myself using my 50mm prime lens for most of the session. Clearly, it lacks the zoom capability of my 17-70mm lens, but it forces me to simplify the photograph and move my feet to get the right shot. The proof is in the photographs. Lately, many of my favorites were taken with a the 50mm.
