Throwing it back to March when I had my first wedding session of 2018! I could not have asked for a better way to kick off wedding season. Debbie and Stephen decided to get married at the Georgia Aquarium, which was definitely the most challenging lighting scenario I’ve faced when photographing a wedding — but the pictures turned out GREAT. The challenge was so worth it for a scenic background that felt like a fantasy.
The ceremony and formal portraits took place in front of the whale sharks, and the reception was held in the Baluga room. The sights were impressive to say the least!
Since the mother of the bride had sadly passed away, they dedicated a special tribute to her. They placed a sign that read “Reserved for the Mother of the Bride” in a chair, as a sweet way to honor her memory.
Debbie and her father, Tim enjoyed their Father-Daughter dance, and everyone made some lasting memories!
Stephen was working out of town in the months leading up to the wedding, and Debbie did a wonderful job handling the final wedding preparations! Although the schedule was thrown off a bit, everything worked out beautifully. (Pro tip: playing the game “Heads Up” is a great way to stay calm and carry on if things aren’t going according to plan!)
Congratulations, Stephen and Debbie! Your wedding was such a fun, memorable and unique opportunity to capture an “underwater” adventure!
