May the Fourth be with YOU…. Flashback

So we love all things Star Wars. I had my own VHS collections before I even met my husband some nearly 20 years ago. So it seems we were destined to be and we are happy to spread a little bit of our love with you. Over the last few years we’ve done some fantastic shoots. Including some fun ones with our gbaby!!! May the Fourth be with YOU!!!

Perrys Landing Tasting Event 4/25/21

So this is one of my favorite events that I look forward to ALL year!!! It’s not just about meeting new couples in love but this venue is ah-mazing!!!

Perrys Landing has some of the prettiest landscaping that creates a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony and reception. Can we talk about sitting out tables on the lawn, to enjoy a meal and looking out at the gorgeous sunset streaming thru the trees?!?

When I tell you they show off… they do it big. I mean how awesome is it to see the potential of decor that’s available for your big day?!? Here’s just a few of my favorites!!! I have to admit I love a beautiful pop of color. Good thing I’m not getting married because these tablescapes are fabulous and I would not be able to choose just one.

Miss Ruby. Y’all!!! Her cakes are sooooo good! I don’t even care…. I. Will. Always. Eat. Cake!!! She makes my fat girl heart happy. Things just taste better with some love baked in and her cakes (I have enjoyed several at this point) are always delicious! Oh yeah and I don’t even mess around with them baby cakes – I grab up the full sized!!!

Can we talk competition? Can we talk about love for our competition? Well I’ve got mad love for Courtney of Sugar Peach. Not only is she so freakin adorable but she is the sweetest too. I’ve worked with her and even for her for several past events. If you need video she would be who I will recommend… EVERY time! PL’s DJ is pretty awesome. I may have shaked this booty five times or ten…. I dunno. That’s just a sign of having a great time and enjoying yourself. I always want to get in on the action and have fun at my events. So if you see me on the dance floor… join me!!! The musicians were so smooth and relaxing. I could totally envision hearing them playing welcoming music as your guests arrive, your ceremony entrance song and recessional music. PL’s staff is top notch! Mignon and her crew make sure every detail is executed perfectly and do it with such grace.

After confirming a special surprise was coming up…. I rounded up a couple and told them there was about to be some fireworks and I would love to try to get a few pics. They graciously came out…. and I captured a little something fun for them.

Once I was done I noticed another couple and someone with a cell phone getting some snaps of them. I was a little pushy and had their celltographer (yep I just made up that word) move over and let me get in there. The fireworks were nearly over but I made something magical in the end!!! Oh and if you’re wondering… that bright circle… it’s the moon.

I’d love to say Congrats to all the couples!!! Thank YOU to everyone that I got to chat with and that allowed me to capture just a quick moment of this exciting time preparing for one of the best days ever!!!

Finally…. a huge shoutout to my assistant. My skip to My LOU!!! Thank you for making my job easier! I love YOU!!! (previous selfie used because even though I intended to totally snap one of us… I forgot {insert super sad face}).

O. M. Beautiful…..

Perrys Landing has got to be one of my most favorite places for a wedding. You can social distance with a gorgeous outside wedding and spread out tables in the barn and even in their tent. The decor is over-the-top amazing!!! This is one of our recent weddings that needs to be shared because it’s so beautiful. Get in touch with me today to reserve your wedding with me!!!

Our BIG announcement!!!

My big announcement day is here and I’m so excited to share with you what’s happening (and sharing my embarrassment too)….

These last few years have been filled with so much. We went from a super busy, growing business as empty nesters to basically new parents with getting custody of our gbaby. Sadly but dutifully, I put our business on the back burner. Honestly, as much as we loved our business, the services we provided and the great clients and friends we’ve helped, we had more important things to worry about. Our gbaby needed us. And we might not have realized it yet… but we needed her too. We now had an infant. OMG those sleepless nights, bottle feedings and all the new parent things. Diapers. The thousands of diapers. O. M. G. The. Diaper. Smells. Ok enough about poops….

I also underwent bariatric surgery in late 2019. For two major reasons, the first in support of my sister who had major medical issues and two I didn’t want to be the fat G (I hate that grandma word as it makes me feel old). I needed to get healthy because my gbaby needed me. So we took a little time and worked on our family and I also (selfishly) worked on myself to get healthier.  

I’m thrilled to report that we’ve settled in and are ready to restart things fresh and new.

So why the change??? Well I am going to honest. I screwed up. I’m a superwoman but I am also still super human. I know. It’s easy to forget all the little things (and sometimes big & was this ever BIG) that keeps a business flowing. To put it simply… I mistakenly allowed our website to expire. It was picked up by a production company that apparently focuses on intimate relationships. Ok. So let me just rip off the band aid… it’s a porn site now. YEP. That’s right. I never took our name as anything that remotely screamed that but someone else obviously had a much grander vision than what we ever did. I just can’t continue to use that name because well… if you saw it… you’d know.

And here we are…. Starting over with a new name, focus and website. I have learned my lesson and it’s a hard one. Autopay!!!

As we move forward, I will focus on more personal projects, mini sessions, portraits and smaller events and weddings (I adore them and can’t give them up just yet). My goal moving forward is to capture the beautiful milestones in your life for you and your family at a budget friendly rate. Create images that you will hang on the wall, share with your family and friends and work with other professionals to help build them up. We are stronger together than alone!!!

So what’s the other part of our big announcement??? I’ll no longer be shooting studio work inside of my little garage! Yaaaassssssss!!!! We are converting a building into a designated shooting space for me. This means that I can photograph anyone, at any time because I control the space. I’m soooo excited for this!!! I still have a ton of work to do to get it studio ready and I look forward to sharing my progress with everyone!

You might be wondering what does this mean for existing clients?!? Nothing. I’ll still be your photographer and provide the same level of love and attention to your wedding, event and session as I always did I’ll just be doing it under my own name as Cherie B Photo and not as At Last Productions. What about FaceBook? Well I’ll be honest and say I’m not sure. I’ll be attempting to change my name on it but that might be slow to do or not something I am able to do. While we work on this transition together I just ask for your patience and I wanted to announce it here so that there are no surprises as the changes happen.

Here’s to new beginnings and fresh new starts.

10.06.2012 Shaw Family Fun Day ~ Event Photographer ~ Waynesboro GA

At Last Productions LLC had such a great time providing photography for Shaw at their Family Fun Day last Saturday! Cherie had 2 awesome assistant photographers & a personal assistant for myself. Compass Rose Events did a wonderful job of pulling it all together.

It was a beautiful October day and  I was pretty excited to be a part of this spectacular event. I’m proud to show off some amazing shots that I was able to capture.

At Last Productions LLC was so excited to be a part of the Shaw Group Family Fun Day!!! And at the end of the day my only regret is not even thinking about applying  sunscreen to my neck & chest – I only did my face! I’m still paying for that now. I will know better next time! See Ya Next Year!!
