I'm a fanatic about capturing portraits in the morning. For me, it's the best light of the day, especially in the city. There is something about getting up before the sun that makes the work I am doing feel more intentional. A couple of days ago me and my best friend took a stroll on the train to take photographs that he needed heading into his program at Princeton University for Music Composition. Yep, you heard me - Princeton. I'm really stoked for how fruitful this next season is going to be for him. I love his heart for music and he's incredible at it.
I've had the pleasure and honor of living with Connor for about 4 years in college and after college. He was the best man in my wedding and going in our latter twenties he still continues to be one of my very best friends. I think about our lives and how different they are in different cities, but still we are more connected than ever - Jesus has a lot to do with that. This project was special to me. I really thought about the location of where to shoot these photos and how it's represents a piece of Connor's life over the past couple of years. So take a peek. You're not only looking at a man with high accolades, but a man of faith that's strong, consistent, and loving.
For you brotha,
The ceremony was at a beautiful church in downtown Atlanta. One of my favorite parts was the portrait session after the wedding. It was at a small park right down the street from the church and we finished just in time before the rain started to pour. Take a peek at some of my favorites below - enjoy!
