Sneak Peek- Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation House – Atlanta Wedding Photographers – Kristen & Jason
I didn’t meet Kristen & Jason until their engagement session at Berry College in Rome, GA. I didn’t have a clue what they looked like, what their relationship was like, I didn’t really know anything about them other than that Kristen works for the Atlanta Falcons. I won’t lie, my first thought when I found that out was, “Hmm, I wonder if she can get me a job to shoot ONE game from the sidelines…” because that’s on my bucket list. Alas, I would never ask, hah!
I so enjoyed spending time with them and learning about their relationship at their engagement session, I feel it’s so important for me to get to know my clients and understand who they are, how they are together, and to really get a feel for what’s most important to them.
Kristen & Jason have a fun, playful relationship on the surface but, after spending time with them, you can see the deep love and admiration they have for each other. After just a few seconds of watching Kristen and her Dad together you could see the bond, the love and respect. I love learning about people and their relationships with the people around them, I think that by studying their relationships you can truly capture moments that are important to them.
Kristen & Jason had a stunningly gorgeous wedding at the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation House in Atlanta, Georgia. Every last detail was gorgeously planned and executed and the wedding was filled with joy, love, and fantastically fun moments. They had a gorgeous ceremony in the outdoor courtyard followed by an intimate reception in the ballroom. During their first dance they surprised guests by switching to a choreographed dance with their amazing dance instructors. A bouquet toss from the balcony and a sparkler exit in to an antique truck that once belonged to Kristen’s great-grandfather wrapped up the spectacular evening.

Inside the house, amazing, no?
Corey captures amazing details including Kristen’s gorgeous Vera Wang dress.
The difference between men and women getting ready – Women spend hours getting ready for their wedding day – Men? They get dressed and have a milkshake.
Incredibly gorgeous cakes by Gabriel’s Desserts. Jason, the groom, made the display stands himself!
Locks and keys were the theme for Kristen & Jason’s wedding. Even their custom logo included them. They were hidden a little bit of everywhere.
I think I may have teared up a bit when I captured this image, I know I did while editing it – the look between them speaks volumes.
