Riyong and James reached out to me about photographing their Serenbe Farms wedding last spring. As I learned more about these two, the more apparent it became how perfect they were together. The way that James cares for Riyong is tender and their touches are sweet. Both of these two live in Atlanta and are actually photographers themselves! While it might sound like a daunting task, it always is such a treat to be able to photograph people, who not only know what it’s like to be behind the camrera, but who can also relate to what it’s like being in front of the camera. I think that one of the most important thing for any of my couples, is to realize, tht when you’re in front of the camera, the most important thing that you can do for yourself to create beautiful pictures, is to solely focus on the one you love most…forgetting about everything else – forgetting that there’s a photographer, forgetting of the tasks and responsibilities that you have, just for a moment.
One of the things that struck me about these two, is that they knew exactly what they wanted, not only for their engagement photos, but also for their wedding day. Most couples opt to have their wedding in Atlanta, but after having been photographers themselves, they mentioned right off the bat how they knew they wanted an intimate wedding together only with their closest family and friends, and how they wanted each of their details for these photos to be specific and reflective of who they were as a couple. I am so grateful for these two.
