Atlanta United ~ An amazing day in Canada 7/28/18

We had an amazing opportunity to visit Montreal Canada to see Atlanta United whoop up on Montreal Impact. Too much. Too soon? Well. We had sooo much fun. My only regret is not asking about a stamp for my passport (I don’t even know if that’s still a thing).

Our day started at 3:50am on Saturday. We got ready and headed to Atlanta to visit the training center of the Atlanta United FC. First of all, this is a beautiful facility. Everyone was so hospitable. We were met with a lavish breakfast spread and soon after we boarded our bus transportation to head to the airport.

We pulled up to our plane and loaded in. The staff on board went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable flight. I’ll say this. If you’re not being served ice cream as your after meal dessert you might be missing out on one of the funnest things EVER!!! I won’t lie. I totally felt like a big kid. Then they brought out the big guns. Yes…. I’m talking king size Reese’s cups, Snickers, Kit Kat – so much indulgence. Sooo much fun!!! And the chips. Let me not forget them. Only the best flavors. I got my favorite Doritos and was very very happy. Oh yeah, I had a few or four baby bottles filled with vodka. After all that goodness you gotta wash it down with something.

Before we knew it we were in Montreal Canada. I really couldn’t get over this beautiful country. The vibrancy. The quaint homes with stunning architecture. This is just a collection of my favorite views as we headed over to our first stop.

I was a little nervous when one of our hosts said it was a 15 minute brisk walk to the top of Mont Royal. I mean, being a fluffy girl and hearing a very fit young man vocalize that word… brisk. I started to have palpitations right then. But I didn’t come this far to not see all I can or do all I could. So I pulled up my big girl pants and got to huffing and hiking up this (now) dreaded mountain. Let me be clear: there’s not usually any sentences that contains me and the outdoors. As I am a self proclaimed “inside dog”. I had got all worked up over nothing. We reached the top in no time at all. Even though it was a steady incline it never ever felt like an overwhelming or daunting physical excursion. When we reached the top… It was a breathtaking view. I would have walked 100x that distance to see that gorgeous setting again.

Our next adventure was a quick trip to the Montreal Botanical Gardens. I could have spent all day here. The Japanese inspired gardens were gorgeous. I could have sat down and smelled the sweetness of warm sunshine and full blooms all day. There is something so calming and refreshing in gardening. It’s a reminder that we are all here for a short little while and that beauty is found within us all.

Warning: DO NOT PUT YOUR FOOT IN THE TOILET. I’m not sure why that was inside the bathroom stall but every warning usually comes from a not so smart person doing something extremely questionable. It’s so out of focus, most likely, because I was giggling so much. It definitely deserved to be included and will go in my collection of special bathroom notices/warnings that humor me.

We get to the stadium. We have amazing seats!!! The drinks are flowing and the food is yummy. We find out another small group has come out to support the team. We are surrounded in a sea of white and blue. We are few but we are mighty as we are Atlanta United. We didn’t just show up… we came to win. And win we did. Unite and conquer!!!

A huge shoutout to everyone that made this an experience of a lifetime! Thank you to the energetic, humorous and spirited crew that kept us on track and entertained. You all are AWESOME!!! Thank you for everything it not nearly enough but it must be said. Thank YOU!!!

Until our next adventure.

XOXO,

Cherie

A Celebration of Life and Love ~ Misty Lakes, North Augusta SC

AtLastProductions.com

With today being our wedding anniversary, nothing makes me happier than being able to share a sweet image from Estelle & Kenneth’s party. In honor of Estelle’s 90th birthday and their 60th wedding anniversary, their family put together an amazing celebration for them at Misty Lakes in Aiken, SC.

As my time was winding down, I wanted to take a few moments to capture a couple of images of them together. As I was setting up this image, I really wanted to position them closer together. I had Mrs. Estelle stand so that I could move her chair closer and Mr. Kenneth, from his seat, reached out to her to hold her arm to help steady her. Still looking after her. Still taking care of her. I can only dream and hope that when I’m 90 that my husband will be still reaching out for me. To guide me and protect me.
This is absolutely one of my most favorite images of them. So much can be read in their hands… strength, tenderness and devotion. I could only be as lucky to celebrate 60 years of marriage. So here is to 15 years down & 45 to go!!!
Happy Anniversary to my love, Phillip.
Always,
Cherie

Raven’s Maternity Session ~ Augusta GA

So by now everyone knows about our new granddaughter. I was so overcome with baby fever leading up to our Luna Star’s birth. Our sweet baby girl was stunning as expectant mother to be. This gown in mulberry was my favorite color.

I can’t believe how beautiful this day was. As a photographer, I couldn’t have asked for any better light for the pictures.

Sooooo blue is my favorite favorite color of all time. When I saw this gown I had to have it. I always knew that we would have a little girl coming but I just couldn’t pass up this beautiful gown. It reminds me a little of the dresses from my wedding.

Nashville, TN: Imaging USA

What’s new with At Last Productions???

ImagingUSA Gaylord Opryland Resort, Nashville TN

 

We, Cherie and Phillip, had such a great time in Nashville, TN at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. I, Cherie, had to go to Imaging and frankly, it is, hands down, one of the largest gatherings of professional photographers for wedding, newborn, maternity, boudoir and senior photography and so much more. Phillip lets me drag him along because he is the most awesomest person ever!!!

Snow topped trees on a hilltop

 

Our drive from Augusta, Georgia to Nashville, Tennessee was definitely one filled with beauty and excitement. It was snowing!!! On the way there and while we were there. We’re not talking about that 1/4″ Georgia snow that shuts down schools and has everyone going out to buy up all the milk and bread within a three state radius.  I can only gauge accumulation based on what I saw stacked on chairs, tables and the grass but my guess is 3-4″ total and it was soooo pretty.

Footprints in the snow

 

I was so excited for the snow and Imaging that I stayed awake the whole drive. I’m usually out like a lumberjack after working 15 hours followed up by a hot shower and a full belly and this is only 10 minutes into the car ride. Just sayin for a friend, who gets stuck driving while I am snoring. Other than the snow, I was excited to be able to go and learn from the top educators and professionals in the photography industry.

At Last Productions ~ A Divine Romance ~ Sacred Heart

Porsha & Isreal’s wedding has got to be without a doubt one of the most beautiful ones we’ve ever been a part of. We did uplighting in a softer blush for the ceremony and then when the sun went down it just became a different level of elegance and sophistication. It was absolutely breathtaking.

A DJ gets hitched…..

How do you kick off a great DJ convention?!? With a wedding of the host and his now lovely bride. At Last Productions is so excited to have been able to witness the ceremony of Robbie & Julia.

Can I just say as a Chevy girl, I was so in love with this amazeballs truck!! If I could have taken it home I would have left right then with it. And yes, I would have had to keep the chilled spiked watermelon all to myself… so delish! Don’t worry there was unspiked too for the kiddos to enjoy.

The cake was gorgeous and delicious tasting too!

At Last Productions

Dano is one of the liveliest DJ’s I have ever met! He is a party all by himself! He was one of the few amazing DJ’s that entertained during Robbie & Julia’s reception. I’m in such awe to be surrounded by such amazing talents.

Julia looked amazing in her layered lace gown walking up the hill to meet Robbie at the steps of the romantic Dickson-Williams Mansion. Their wedding was filled with moments of laughter and fun with tender looks, smiles and glances and declarations of love.

One of my favorite moments was when grandpa tried to cover the eyes of the little one during their first kiss as husband and wife.

Sometimes you think a wedding is just about the couple but it’s really about family. Sometimes that family is small and sometimes it’s large. No matter the size it’s all about YOUR new family coming together as one!!

Congratulations Britton Family!!! XOXO
