Atlanta Engagement Session: Crystal and Ken by Milanes Photogrpahy

Posted in ellyB Couples Engagement Pictures, ellyB Published


I cannot believe it is Friday already. We only have eight more days until we enter the new year. Although time is flying, we could not be any more grateful to make dreams and events come true. We are ready!!

We are bringing to you all of the fabulous couples getting hitched next year so you will be very familiar with them once their wedding day rolls around.  Crystal is our Diva. Everything about her is show stopping and modelesque (pretty sure I just made that word up!). Can’t you just tell by the pictures?

They started out taking pictures around and by Centennial park then ended the perfect day on the rooftop of the Glen Hotel. The transition is color is just amazing!


Check out their love story on Essence.

Foundry at Puritan Mill Atlanta Wedding: Melissa and Thea

Posted in ellyB Published, ellyb Real Weddings

I never considered it work when working with Melissa and Thea.  Melissa may be one of the sweetest souls I know, that could not even get upset at anyone if she tried. Thea just completes her in every way as they embark on journey after journey together.  Since her mother has affectionately adopted me into the family, be prepared to see this couple a lot more on the blog in the upcoming months!

Melissa began her day getting ready at one of the most gorgeous spa’s in all of Atlanta, Spa Sentio. While the girls took their time to get ready, they sipped on champagne and transformed into fabulous divas. The ceremony took place at the beautiful Christ the King Cathedral then the guests headed to the Foundry at Puritan Mill for a night full of dancing.  If you ever want to see what 400 people on the dance floor looks like, peep below!

We made sure that no detail was missed as we carried the color scheme from the clothes that Melissa wore in her save the date picture, to the mini pom poms we threw at the grand exit. It was great to see how the tangerine and plum worked so well together (we were ahead of the curve with the Pantone 2012 colors!).

ellyB Atlanta Photoshoot with Mike Colon Photography

Posted in ellyB Photoshoots


A few months ago we received an email from Katherine from Mike Colon Photography, wanting to collaborate on a shoot that they had coming up here in Atlanta. Ummmmm, let me think about this, a shoot with celebrity photography Mike Colon? Ummm not sure let me think about this (we did all of this while we were jumping up and down and attempting to do a cart wheel). ABSOLUTELY was all I could type. If I must say so myself, this shoot was definitely swoon worthy!

It gave us the opportunity to show off our rustic/vintage style while proving you can still be fabulous and glam!  Check out the shoot below and the rest of the images on Style Me Pretty.

Interactive Stations – Apple Cider Bar

Posted in Interactive Stations

What a great compliment to any event that happens around the holidays.  Why not give your guests the option of creating their own version of the perfect apple cider. Create a fun table complete with a festive backdrop as guests mingle and try apple cider with different toppings and mixtures.

Ventanas Atlanta Wedding: Asha and Bryson

Posted in ellyB Published, ellyb Real Weddings


This is one of those posts that I do not even know where to begin. Should I start off by telling you how awesome Asha and Bryson are or should I just replay their wedding day picture by picture???? Ok I just decided to do a little bit of both.

I tell Asha daily that she will be our first female President. I know she thinks I am joking but I mean it. Everyone knows her, and not one person has anything bad to say about her. She just has this presence about her that commands a room but is totally approachable at the same time. Oh let’s not forget her better half. He might as well run for Vice President right beside her because they are truly that much of a power couple!

Asha and her girls, began their day at in the penthouse suite of the Glenn Hotel in downtown Atlanta.  Asha and Bryson decided to do a first look on the roof top of the Glenn Hotel. It was just perfect, just the two of them!

Bryson had two dinner jackets. One for the first look and another for the rest of the ceremony and reception. Men take note, you can do a dress change too!

ellyB Events – December Press Round Up

Posted in ellyB Published, ellyb Real Weddings

So we are going to let you in on a little secret. One of our goals this year was to see our fabulous couples and events on the pages of the Knot Magazine. First we were blessed to see Jessica and Sam in the Knot National issue that came out earlier this month, and now we have not one but two couples in The Knot Georgia edition. As an added bonus we even gave some savvy scoops on how to make your day that much better!  Congrats to Asha and Bryson as well as Melissa and Thea!

NYC Engagement Session: Ashley Rose and Bryan

Posted in ellyB Couples Engagement Pictures


There are various reasons why we connect with our clients. I am super excited to share one of the first things (of many), that we connected with Ashley Rose and Bryan, was their love for NYC. Bryan actually proposed to Ashley Rose in NYC, and the fabulous jet-setting couple went back to NY to take their engagement session with an amazing fall color palette of the leaves in their background.

Traveling to local destination hotspots such as central park and grand central station, their shoot is just as adorable as they are.




Thanks to Craig Paulson Photography for taking such great pictures and for taking care of my couple!

Atlanta Engagement Session: Katryna and Johnnie by Aragon Photography

Posted in ellyB Couples Engagement Pictures

I don’t think I have ever seen such a hot couple just strolling around Piedmont Park. With such scenic surroundings, there is no surprise as why Piedmont Park serves as the backdrop for many engagement sessions that take place here in Atlanta.  The couple decided to have a fun yet laid back shoot to truly demonstrate their personality. I think they did just that! Aragon Photography blew this shoot out of the water!  Katryna and Johnnie are getting married next October and we could not be any happier for them.
