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.

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.

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

So very excited about getting to photograph a super sweet vow renewal for Mr. & Mrs. Allen!! I will always now listen for squeaky shoes in churches (one of my most favorite things about your wedding). You have the most precious baby girl she is so incredibly sweet, spunky and sassy – I hope she never changes! It was my privilege and honor to be a part of this day with you.

We are so very happy to announce that one of our favorite couples are now Mr. & Mrs.!! As we waited for the ceremony to begin Anna walked in and… Oh Em Gee!! Her wedding gown was absolutely stunning and I had to grab a quick shot of her in the room. Anna was glowing with excitement and beauty. I’m so happy for them.

Nia & Jason are married!! 5.17.14 The Heal Complex at Paine College Reception

At Last Productions had a great time working with some of our very favorite people, Dewayne and Cassandra of Unique Events. They provided exquisite table décor and florals for Nia & Jason’s wedding celebration. I love how beautifully our company compliments others – it never stops amazing me. I say all the time…. We are just a part of a couple’s wedding day, it takes everyone coming together with the same goal to make it fabulous.

We all began setup the day before the wedding. As far as us perfectionists saw it, the preinstalled pipe and draping just wasn’t there yet. We called on John at Moretz Production Service. At Last Productions has personally worked with him before and he really came through for us all in a major way. John provided the finishing touches on the draping around the room and additional setups for the guest entry way and pipe and drape to conceal two staircases that was so desperately needed. It’s in the details. Watching this room go from drab to fab was like watching a day go from dark to light.

Tonight we meet a stellar vendor – Desmond of Gardenia’s Custom Cakes. His creation for their wedding cake was simply jaw-dropping. He could easily be put into my top 3 wedding cake artists just with the visual alone. Unfortunately I didn’t get to partake in any cake and if you know me – I’m pretty upset over it. I LOVE my cake. However I did have some melt in your mouth cake pops. They were so sweet and yummy I went back for more (don’t tell anyone).

The catering staff of Paine College did an excellent job on the food and dinner service. They created two ice sculptures for the couple. A swan placed directly above their couple table and a huge heart on the dessert buffet. As a matter of fact, everyone we encountered, at Paine College went above and beyond to help in any way they could.

It makes me think what challenges and surprises we will see in our journey in our own marriage together. A couple like the Howards gives inspiration and hope that no matter what comes your way as a couple, that together you can overcome anything.

One of my favorite things was a beautiful magazine that was not only their program but it included their favorite things and their wedding day story.

Let us help tell your story. For your next event let us create a custom monogram that speaks of who you are.

Check out what happens when we add lighting to an ice sculpture! Everyone seemed to really love it. Guests took pictures in front of it all night long. Even when we were breaking down our equipment and turned off the lights we still got requests to turn back on the lighting so guests could get a few more snap shots. We were happy to oblige.

Everyone had a great seat no matter where they were because River City Video Productions broadcast all the speakers and action real time on a huge projection screen and on tv screens around the room.

Digital Negative vs Enhanced Edit – What’s that mean?

I have gotten a few questions about what exactly is a digital negative. So let’s take a closer look at what that means.

Back in the days of film when you dropped off that 35mm (or for me… 110 film) with every roll that was developed you received a copy of the negative. This was used for archival purposes and if you needed to obtain a print you had to have the negative.

A Digital Negative is simply this: The unedited photographic digital capture of subjects in color or black and white.

For those clients that do have digital negatives included with their package they are, as needed, balanced for color and exposure.

Below is an example of a Digital Negative:

Digital Negative
Digital Negative

So how does that compare to an Enhanced Edit and WHY are you charging extra for that?

Well because capturing those amazing moments is just a part of what I do. Transforming those images into feelings, thoughts and ideas takes time and vision. I am only asking that for the hard work and long hours that I spend making that image perfectly representative of what I love and cherish that I be fairly compensated.

I as an artist, woman, wife and mother choose the images that most speak to me and that show the most emotion and feelings from our time together.

Below is an example of an Enhanced Edit:

Those days of film have long since passed us by. But it is very important to understand the importance of archiving digital files regardless if it is a digital negative or an enhanced edit. I urge you to print your most favorite images, show them off and display them proudly in your home. Keep your archival process updated as fast as there are advancements in technology.

These files hold your most treasured memories. If they are there unprotected, they can and will be lost forever.
