Piedmont Park Wedding Photos | Sheila and Travis

Today I’d like to tell you the story of Sheila and Travis’ incredibly intimate courthouse wedding day. They contacted me just a couple of weeks before the wedding and explained that they had decided that the time was just right and they had made plans to be married at a courthouse in Cobb County. And while the courthouse didn’t allow photography, they’d still like to make some photos to document the day. Naturally I jumped at the idea because I’m a fan of an intimate wedding, and this one would have only three guests. The neatest thing about my job, besides the fact that I get to make people happy for a living, is that I get to hang out with the coolest people. The hardest thing about my job is that I have to remember to stop chatting with these cool people and pick up my camera and make some photos. Because I really wanted to sit down over a drink and talk to them about all the cool places they had traveled to. Anyone who has an enormous world map in their living room is someone I need to be friends with. But eventually we made it to Piedmont Park and made some fun photos, despite the bone chilling wind and temperatures. Hooray for North Face thermals and sunlight. And congratulations to Sheila and Travis! It was so much fun getting to know you guys and I’m really impressed with how you toughed out the cold to make these photos. Also, I really want to thank you for introducing me to the amazing music of Valerie June. You two are the best.
