Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center Wedding Pictures
We had a blast with Amber & Ronald this past summer! Below are a couple of fun highlights from the day.
The whole day’s events took place at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center in Atlanta, GA!
Ronald’s wedding party attendants kicked off the morning with a celebratory round of champagne!
Getting ready is hard work! There is so much attention to detail!
Ronald wasn’t nervous at all!
Once Ronald & his wedding party attendants were fully dressed, we went down to the hotel lobby bar to get some awesome group portraits! Luckily, the lobby was gorgeous and there weren’t many patrons there! We got to shoot in a lot of really great spots!
In this photo below, we added an additional speedlight modified by a super large umbrella to make the light super soft and perfect for portraits!
They requested a shot next to this classic style car! Such a cool piece of history.
Once we finished up with the guys, we head over to the girls! This photo below was shot with just beautiful natural lighting! 😍
And we absolutely loved the custom hanger Amber had created for her special day! Such a great personal touch.
And of course, we’ve got to get all the details!
Cheers to the new Mrs! What a fun crew!
A couple more creative details shots while we waited for the ladies to get dressed!
Amber was all smiles all day!
Once everyone was fully dressed, we ran back down to that lobby again! We made sure the guys were long gone so the bride & groom wouldn’t see each other before their first look!
This particular image below was a request from the bridesmaids – they wanted to replicate the front cover image from the movie Bridesmaids! Absolutely love all the attitude here!
After we finished up our portraits with the ladies, it was time for the first look between Amber & Ronald!!! It was a rainy day outside, so we found a great place inside to keep the bride and groom nice & dry!
Ronald was full of so much emotion! It’s so hard not to cry ourselves when we’re capturing moments like this!
His reaction did not disappoint!
Such a sweet & tender moment between these two!
Had to get some shots with this awesome staircase! Amber & Ronald were too cute!
What you don’t see in these pictures is Kyle hiding around the corner and wielding a massive umbrella to light up our subject here!
For this particular shot, we’re going for something a bit more dramatic! We love drama (when it’s in photos that is!)
This is a single light set up without any modifiers directly behind our couple! We love the way it captures & lights up that veil!
Amber & Ronald were all smiles that day!
We are suckers for large architectural style / environmental style portraits! The bigger the space, the better! It helps to paint a fuller picture of the story that day.
And then we finished up their couples creative portraits back at the bar! Loved all the decor & lights & fancy vases they had set up here!
After the couple’s creative portraits segment of the day, we headed off to the ceremony & reception locations to start capturing all the details before the ceremony began & the guests started arriving.
Below are the containers of sand used in the sand pouring ceremony to signify a unifying of families. We added in a quick constant light to this image just to get a nice pop from the elements below. Love the colors they chose for the sand!
They had such a beautiful welcome sign for their guests!
We absolutely adored their cake topper! I believe the cake topper was custom created for their wedding! Love all the details! Not Your Nana’s Bakery did a phenomenal job with this one!
A nice close up shot of some of the table centerpieces before the candles were lit! Love the vibrancy of the crystals/ rocks in these vases! Definitely a nice way to add some ambience to your wedding decor.
And of course no wedding is complete without a coffee station to keep your guests (and your Photo Team) caffeinated! It’s a great way to ensure the party keeps going! Also loved all the different tea options they had for non coffee drinkers!
Absolutely loved all the up lighting! I believe these were supplied by their DJ – Kristina Murray with Atlanta Premiere Entertainment! The reception hall looked absolutely gorgeous! Loved all these vibrant colors!
