I (Tanya) had the amazing opportunity to participate in a styled Christmas wedding shoot in Atlanta Georgia. It was at the gorgeous Carmichael House in Jackson, Georgia. Every detail of this shoot screamed Holidays and Christmas. From the beautiful red rose flower arrangements and bouquets to the stunning couples snuggled together, it was a perfect Christmas shoot.
This Queen Anne Victorian home was built in 1898 by John Robert Carmichael. Carmichael was a prosperous businessman who build the home for his family of 11 children. In its completion it cost $16,000 to build. The home is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the finest examples of the Victorian style of architecture in the state. This beautiful estate has served as a family home, apartments during the Great Depression, a bed and breakfast and now an event venue. The home was acquired by its new owners the Garrett Family two years ago. Renovations have taken place to restore both the interior and exterior of the lovely “Pink Lady” as she is affectionately called in the area.
Rachael and Caleb are the first stunning couple I photographed. Rachael is also a wedding photographer and Caleb is a musician. They met through a mutual friend at one of Caleb’s shows at the Masquerade in Atlanta. Caleb asked Rachael if she would take band photos for his band and after that they started talking and then dating. The couple shared their first kiss on top of Stone Mountain where three years later Caleb proposed at sunset. The two will be married in North Georgia in March of 2018. Caleb and Rachael enjoy hiking and watching horror movies together. Check out their wedding website on The Knot.
Kayla and Eric are the second couple, and how stinkin’ adorable are they? They both live in Atlanta and Kayla is an amazing hair stylist and owner of Elysian Studio in Atlanta, which she just opened in November. What an exciting venture.
