Blue Ridge Wedding Photography Jamie & Amber
A Blue Ridge Georgia Intimate Wedding
Jamie & Amber’s wonderful wedding included some rain and some fast incoming cold. We encourage ALL our couples to think seriously about a 2nd shoot. Sometimes that is due to weather, sometimes just to expand the amount of images that are JUST about them! With a nod to personal choice, here is why we always suggest a “shoot 2”.
The pressure is off. You are not worried about timelines or feeding your guest or whether Uncle Charley is happy. It’s just you two, your photographers and some grand fun!
Personally I am a huge fan of the getting ready portion. So much happens that, in my opinion, is spiritual in nature due to the enormity of the day.
The ceremony was held at Salem #2 Baptist Church with Pastor Randy Hooper Presiding. The Reception immediately followed.

Shoot 2 was held at a new venue in Mineral Bluff Ga. As of yet I have not been notified of the name. (Yes, it’s THAT new!)
When shooting the couple, you can direct them insofar as locations etc. but try to leave enough of a “hands-off” approach where they can be themselves…shooting with a slightly longer lens can get you out of the immediate vicinity yet pull you close enough for those all important moments of chemistry that often occurs BETWEEN the poses. Be ready for them!
Jamie & Amber are a quiet couple. But, given some directions, time and some trust and you get wonderful emotion between them!
We love to balance our approach with our award winning photojournalism, true intimate, emotional moments and distinctive “WeddingScapes” that become cherished one-of-a-kind wall art.
As previously mentioned, we do some light directing then we move as far away as possible and let the chemistry and the moment take over between the couple. Watch closely. Have your antennae up and a quick finger on the shutter.
