Bride on the steps of the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center

Katie’s Bridal Session at the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, GA was the perfect way to end 2020. We met on what was one of the nicest December days I’ve ever experienced – with temperatures in the high sixties, it was incredibly warm & pleasant, even for a city that has […]



Elegant and Classic Wedding at the Hotel at Avalon

Angela and Piyush’s wedding at the Hotel at Avalon in Alpharetta and St Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, GA was such a wonderful day! I immediately clicked with Angela from the first moment we chatted on the phone! Her enthusiasm, energy and joy are absolutely contagious, and when I met Piyush at their engagement session at Atlanta National, I discovered that he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met and I love how much he makes Angela laugh! Being around them is so much fun that even just thinking about their fun interactions on their wedding day brings a big smile to my face! The day was filled with fun and laughter – it fit them to a T!

The day started at the beautiful Hotel at Avalon where the girls were getting ready. I loved taking shots of Angela’s gorgeous details around the hotel, and her dress shot is my favorite to date! Piyush and the guys also hung out and got ready at the Hotel before heading over to the church for pictures before the ceremony. Once hair and makeup were complete, Angela and the girls hung out together before heading over to the church as well!

The ceremony was a full catholic mass, and I love that Angela and Piyush’s joy and excitement was evident from start to finish! After the ceremony, we took family photos at the church before heading back to the Hotel at Avalon for wedding party and Bride & Groom shots! We found so many cute spots around the Avalon for their photos, and I particularly loved this wall with teal outlined windows that happened to match Angela & Piyush’s wedding colors perfectly! After photos, it was into the Hotel for the reception where they celebrated the joining of two cultures and families! All in all, it was such a wonderful day for a truly fantastic couple!

Angela and Piyush – Capturing your wedding day was such a Joy! Thank you so much for the honor of getting to know you and photographing such a special time in your lives as a couple! I’m inspired by the way you love and care for not only each other but the family and friends that surround you! I love the laughter you share together, and I believe that it will be your “married superpower,” if you will! 😉 Continue to make each other laugh, and I hope the joy you felt on your wedding day will only multiply and grow stronger in the days ahead! Enjoy the photos! Much love and appreciation – Carrie Joy
