Melvina's White & Gold 50th Birthday Celebration

It’s been awhile since we’ve blog and boy oh boy we have got allot to catch up on. We’ve have been busy all summer long capturing a variety of events! We are happy to share this beautiful White & Gold 50th Birthday Celebration we had the opportunity to capture.

We were contacted earlier this year and booked for this Summer All white party. The theme was Chicago since the honoree was originally from there. Family and Friends travel from near and far to be apart of this great night.

Hosted at Eagles Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, Georgia. The DJ kept the crowd on the floor with a great mix of old school new school and classic Chicago! The MC of the night kept the crowd engage. Their were gift being handed out all night by raffle tickets that were given to every guest as they entered the room. Chicago Skyline was the Step and Repeat and a delicious dinner was served your choice of Salmon or Chicken. The guest danced the night away as they tossed to the birthday girl. We were so thrilled that we could be apart of this celebration and captured moments from this milestone.

My Truth ... My Success.....

Reflections of Success on my journey in Photography….

Elisha Akram - Brand Ambassador for the everyday person

Shiny Pretty Success Business 

Dreams of Success using the natural gifts that we possess and learning things along the way. 

I never looked at myself as successful. Although I've been running around with my camera for years and at one point I was capturing so many special events I was like ... I am the women I'm running this event scene in Atlanta 

I'm the go to event photographer and I'm working with so many event planners and what makes it even better is that I'm a Certified event planner too!

That makes my job even better. Not only do I capture great images to tell the story of the event, but I pay attention to details and I'm building everyone’s portfolio! 

Yay me!!! 

Well well.... it wasn't until I attended a photography workshop and I straight came out of my bubble.... I thought everyone in attendance were new to this game of photography , but when I start seeing all the photo gear and seeing photos taken by my fellow photographer I suddenly realize... Oh you are not who you think you are for sure. 

I became intimated and now I didn't want to show my work due to being called out by rookie errors and not knowing the proper way to balance light for the photos. 

Well I continued into my dream world of being the go to social event photographer and I was determine to polish up my skills 

So again I would look at all these magazine worthy photos and great shots with beautiful lighting with hopes that one day I will be that successful photographer

I had hopes to work with some of the finest vendors in Atlanta! 

Then one day after going through some images from an event I realize I worked along side of a vendors that is in the who's who of events around Atlanta and that wow... You really are successful.

uncertain of what that really meant for me in the beginning but through this journey I realize you have captured amazing images you work with amazing vendors and your images have been used in magazines, blogs book covers flyers and so much more. So success is all in what it is meant to you personally and goals that you set out to achieve... 

So re design success on what that means to you and you will be and Already Are successful!

It's a great day to be alive.

40th Birthday Celebration in the Garden !

You've heard of a vegatable garden, a flower garden and even a secret garden. So with all that in mind earlier this year we were contacted by Ronda, she was putting together her birthday celebration and she decided to have an intimate dinner with friends in her private home. The theme of the dinner party was Garden. 


Friends How many of us have them? Well for Ronda, she has quite a few that joined her for a private chef table experience. It was a milestone birthday and she decided to celebrate with her closest friends over some delicious dinner paired up with the best-tasting wine for the entree. We were so happy to be apart of the beautiful celebration and we totally appreciate being able to take a delicious plate home.

A Moment with Mother!

A moment with mother!

A flash back to the  Saturday before Mother's Day we travel approximately 60 miles to Serenbe Farms to capture a beautiful luncheon with daughters and their mothers. This event really had me feeling warm and fuzzy on the inside. Seeing the love between mothers and daughters. One delightful part of the luncheon was a video presentation that featured the daughters giving special Mother's Day messages. For me it warms my heart to be able to capture these timeless images that will be cherished for generations to come. 

The beautiful setup for all the mothers and daughters

Cardi B thanks for Inspiring me!

We recently hosted our Portfolio & Perspectives Style Shoot Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia

As we were busy styling up our main table for seating we were inspired... So here goes my story of Inspiration! 

So those who are not familiar with the rap star Cardi B she has been headlining blogs, news outlets and she was made super popular by her authentic style on Instagram. This young female rapper just recently dropped her debut album and when I saw the cover art I was so inspired.

Our Inspiration after a quick screen shot of someone ele's creative artwork featuring the album cover design art 

IMG_4352 copy.jpg

I absolutely love loud colors they scream happiness to me. So with the inspiration of the album art cover, I was inspired to design my recent table scape for our Portfolios & Perspectives Event Design Workshop around the inspiration of the album cover. Searched my mind and took an immediate inventory of items already owned that I can pull this look together. Just a few basics and we got what we envision the color palette that screams fun!

This was a fun table scape to put together! I love lots of colors its screams happiness. 

So I hope you are able to feel the joy in the images as we were excited about creating
