Alex and Danielle’s engagement session was featured again!  We had so much fun doing this shoot but who know it would become so popular!?  I love to do engagement sessions that are out of the box.  For example, I’ve been dying to find a couple that would do their engagement session at a fair….ferris wheels, carousels, cotton candy – oh my!  I’d love to chat with you about a fun and unique engagement session so send your ideas my way!

Thanks www.fabulouslywed.com for featuring us on your site!  We are honored!

Braves2 Atlanta Braves team up with BerryTree Photography!  **Models Needed**

First of all…let me start by saying how incredibly humbled I am!  I (me! BerryTree Photography!) have been asked by The Atlanta Braves and Turner Field to shoot some promo images for them!  How cool would it be to have pictures of you and your loved ones taken at the field?  Awesome right?!  Well…Turner Field thinks so too and is starting a campaign to let more people know that this is an option (you can even get married there!)  So…they’ve asked me to take some pictures that they can use in their promotional materials both online and in print.

Here’s where you come in!  We’ll be doing two shoots.  An engagement session and a family session – and I need models!  Please see below for details and if you meet the criteria and are interested, please let my know via an e-mail titled “Braves” sent to sarah@berrytreephotography.com by THIS Friday, February 11th.  Also…please make sure to include a picture of you and those that will be photographed.  We’ll be choosing the models this weekend and doing the shoots next week at Turner Field (the week of the 14th).

What I need:

  • a couple in their mid 20s-early 30s (currently engaged or recently married preferred)
  • a family with 2-3 kids – at least 1 boy and 1 girl
  • wardrobe will need to be approved by myself and Turner Field but it should be something similar to the looks below
    (we can discuss specifics if you are the models chosen)
  • available between 5:30-7:30 weeknights during the week of February 14th

What you will get:

  • 10 digital low resolution images from your session to be able to share online with family and friends
    4×6 prints of each of the 10 images
  • the ability to purchase the high resolution files or additional prints at a discounted price
  • the opportunity to be featured on the Atlanta Braves website and in marketing materials!

**We will take pictures in outfits similar to the below as well as Atlanta Braves gear that will be supplied by the stadium.

This song just makes me smile in my heart.  It is just so sweet!  It doesn’t hurt that it also reminds me of my little bro and his sweet fiance.  I helped him make a slideshow of engagement pictures I took to this song and he gave it to her for Christmas.  Let me tell you…everyone in the room was crying watching that video!   Just thought I’d spread the love and share Train’s – Marry Me with you all just in case you haven’t heard it yet!  Enjoy.

**seriously swooning**

only 8 days until the reveal of Urban Outfitter/Anthropologie’s wedding dress line (BHLDN)!! This lover of all things girly, sweet, romantic, vintage, ruffles and lace is in heaven!  I can already tell these dresses are going to be a photographer’s dream to shoot!  So much texture and detail!

BHLDN Anthropologie Wedding Dresses??  Yes please!

Last night I was watching “19 Kids and Counting”.  I know that many people can’t stand that show and think that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are crazy for having so many children.  Well, I admire them.  In a world today where so many choose to find the best way to fit in they have chosen to stick out, to be different, and to trust that God will provide for them.  While yes, 19 kids might be a bit extreme for most, they understand that children are a blessing from God – a true gift to be cherished!  That’s why I LOVE photographing families so much.  Capturing the interaction and love between families feeds my soul.  So…what is this post about you might ask?  Well…last night on “19 Kids and Counting” Michelle talked a lot about having a servant’s heart that looks for opportunities to serve others.  Well…it struck a nerve with me.

While I’ve gone on a few mission trips, served the homeless dinner at shelters numerous times ,etc…I have never really had a chance to give back and serve others with one of the greatest gifts God has given me – my photography.  So…I’d like to do just that.  If you know of a family that fully embraces this principle, that children are a gift, a blessing, a reward – but might be struggling with hard times and not be able to financially afford custom photography for their family – I would LOVE to hear about them.  You know someone. I guarantee it.
I would love to hear about them!
