Court House Weddings Can Be beautiful!!!


I met Daniel and Crystal a while back for their engagement session at Ra Sushi the place they met. I loved working with them the entire time. So the whole time we are shooting I am laughing like crazy because he is doing everything to keep his woman smiling. I enjoyed this session however we shot again so that we could make sure I got just what the bride and groom wanted for their engagement session. Those photos came out amazing!!!

Now here we are in Lawrenceville GA at the courthouse taking the photos of this amazing couple for their wedding day. On my website I have Courthouse packages listed because not every bride wants the big day with flowers and all the bells and whistles. Some brides like this one would love to see the world. This beautiful couple will be taking a honey moon in an amazing location and I am rooting for Dubai and hoping they bring me along with them as their personal photographer. lol:) ( you can't blame a girl for trying)

Below are images of Daniel and Crystal enjoying their wedding day and opening a new chapter in their love story. I hope you guys enjoy the images.

The ring: Tiffany & Co ( We call it the Corolla, When you see it you will know why lol)


Ponce City Market Engagement Session


I had an amazing time shooting Ruthie and Antonio at Old Fourth Ward and Ponce City Market. This couple was not shy at all and allowed me to get some amazing shots of them just being themselves and having a good time. I especially loved the fact that we got the opportunity to shoot in Williams-Sonoma where they registered for their wedding for the end of the session. Take a look around and enjoy.


Rings by the Springs 2017


Every year in April Heritage Sandy Springs holds 2-8 small ceremoniesin one day that they call Rings By the Springs. These weddings cover an entire wedding day in a 1 hour time period. For the past two years I have shot these weddings with Heritage Sandy Springs and I love it.

The bride shows up with her make up done, she gets in her gown, the groom is already dressed and we shoot 5-10 mins of preparation photos of both the bride and the groom. They are both in separate locations of course. Then the ceremony begins, That last about 5-10 mins and then bride and groom are off to cut the cake and greet their guest. From there we do the family photos and a small intimate photo session with the bride and groom. Once that is complete the wedding day is over and the family is off to enjoy their day. This wedding venue is amazing, the guest list is small only 25 people in attendance per wedding and the day happens without a single hiccup.

These weddings are perfect for all who want a quick ceremony and don't want to do it at a courthouse.

This year I shot the wedding of Sharon & Lanny. These two love birds are already married and have been for 25 years. They decided to do their vow renewal at Rings By The Springs and invite family and friends that have been their since the beginning. They were even married by the exact same officiant that married them 25 year ago. Congrats on such long marriage and I will you both many more years Sharon and Lanny.  Here are some of the photos from this couples second big day. I hope you all enjoy.


Old Dekalb Courthouse


Every year I shoot at least 3-4 weddings at this locations and with every wedding I get different shots. This wedding was a special one because this bride and groom were celebrating with family and friends who can from all over to share in their special day. Ameche and Melanie Monroe were such amazing clients that it is impossible to do anything but smile when near them.

The wedding prep for the bride too place at The Georgian Terrace. From the beginning of the day the planner Janel Elise was amazing assisting the bridal party as well as the rest of the guest and vendors with everything that we needed.

Here is a look at Mr. & Mrs. Monroe on wedding day at The Old Dekalb Courthouse.

New name, new look, Same Vision!


So where do I start?...

2017 has gotten off to an interesting start. Let me catch you all up on what's going on with L. Hunter Photography and the new company LaJoy Photography. 

We all go out and search for the fairytale. The man or woman of our dreams and most of the time we find them and that's it there is no one else in the world for us. Well in my case I found an amazing friend but my friend and I realized our love for each other was just that, a friendship. We couldn't be better friends and co-parents for my children. 

This year I am starting a new chapter in my life and my company needed a make over as much as I did. So I dyed my hair, got glasses, changed the name of my company and started traveling for business. So now LaJoy Photography which is formerly L. Hunter Photography is going to be in Texas, Florida, North and South Carolina and California. 

The team of photographers has grown, the name has changed but the vision is the same. So visit the new site, look around and give me a call so we can book your wedding or portrait session today.
