Taqueesa & Adrian’s Wedding | Word of Faith Cathedral | Atlanta Austell Wedding Photographer

Wedding

Big churches are either an Atlanta thing, or a Southern thing, I don’t remember seeing many in Florida… Word of Faith Cathedral built by the Bronner Brothers over in Austell next to Six Flags probably qualifies as a “big church,” with it’s 4,000 seat main cathedral! We were not in the main cathedral for the wedding, but I almost got lost in the parking lot getting to the smaller chapel! This Saturday was a lovely day for a wedding as we celebrated with Taqueesa, Adrian, their family and friends. The day started off with the bride and groom getting ready at the Bronner International Chapel. Thanks in advance to the always amazing Sonya Yim for second shooting (and first shooting at times while I shot video), all photos in this post by me, Zac, of course; but you can head over to Sonya’s site to see her angles. Let’s get started with this wedding!

Prior to the ceremony we snuck Taqueesa out to the parking lot for some portraits. Parking lot? Yes, parking lot =) We had to be subtle to make sure the groom and the guests didn’t see her!

Ok and I still took some indoors in the bridal suite too!

The reception got off to a sweet start as Adrian serenaded his bride with his saxophone.

2014 Wedding Photography Year in Review
It's that time again, as another year draws to a close, to go through the archives and try to remember all of the weddings we photographed this year. 2014 was a big year for us, moving from Atlanta to New York, and continuing to photograph primarily Indian weddings in both cities. I know the pain those consultants feel jumping on a plane every weekend to fly from New York City down to Atlanta, but at least it's a short flight and between two Delta hubs to make it super easy for me. Speaking of weddings though, every year I feel like I get just a little bit better if I do say so myself (and I do)! More amazing clients this year meant for more ...
