Katherine and Jeff | Atlanta Botanical Garden Wedding

Photo-of-Atlanta-Botanical-Garden-Wedding-taken-by-Erik-Meadows-Photography (61)I typically have my first face to face meeting with a potential wedding client at one of Atlanta’s finer coffee establishments, Octane or Dancing Goats being my preferred spots to drink a nice hot brew. Katherine and I first met, however, enjoying a different kind of brew: the kind that can make you a bit tipsy and say things that you might not normally say.

One beautiful Saturday afternoon last autumn, I was location scouting (quaffing craft beer) at Three Taverns Craft Brewery in Decatur. I had been hired to photograph a wedding at Three Taverns and with a rare Saturday night off, I thought I would go check the place out. I saw Katherine and her friend (and future bridesmaid) Lalita sitting on the sidewalk with their tasting glasses. I recognized Katherine from one of my earliest photography jobs. She had been a regular patron at an art gallery where I used to photograph exhibit openings every few months.

I reintroduced myself and after a few minutes of chit chat, Katherine dropped the news that she was engaged and possibly looking for a wedding photographer. As I was a few beers in, and a bit loose with my tongue, I gave Katherine my card and relayed a few boastful statements about the quality of my wedding photos. Normally, I just let my photos do the talking, but apparently a few sips of beer and my inner salesperson comes to the surface.  I recall Lalita saying, somewhat frankly, “At least he’s confident”.

A year later the three of us, plus the rest of the bridal party, were situated high above midtown Atlanta, at the Loew’s hotel, where this wedding photo blog begins…
