Vendor Spotlight: M&A Photography

Today we are so excited to feature M&A Photography as our “Vendor of the Week”

1.  How long have you been in business? “We started this journey just over 4 years ago”

2. Tell us what we should know about Marcus and Aisha.  “I really love my job! There is something about capturing the happiest moments in people’s lives that makes our lives better”

3. What makes you guys different from other photographers in the Atlanta area? “We offer albums with all of our collections.  We don’t like to give away only digital files.  We love giving our couples something that they can hold.”

4. Why should brides hire M&A Photography? “They should hire us because they will receive the highest quality of photography with great customer service that will have them feeling like they have made a new friend, rather than a hired wedding vendor.

5. What services do you offer to brides? Do you have a specialty? “We offer photography (boudoir/bridal/wedding) and will be offering video for 2016 weddings.  We specialize in fine art and lifestyle images”

6. Who is your ideal client? “Our ideal client is laid back and sweet.  Chances are she loves things like Pinterest and texting.  Her phone is more than likely filled with screenshots of wedding pictures and a countdown to my wedding app.  For my client this wedding is going to be the highlight of her life because she is head over heels in love.”

7.  Do you travel or are all of your clients in the Metro Atlanta area?  “We LOVE to travel! Whether it be a destination wedding or an out of state client I always look forward to visiting new venues/locations”

8.  How can brides reach you all? “Through the website is always great http://www.MNAphotoz.com but our phone number is 678-421-4219”

Real Weddings: Veronica + Johnathan

Woods-1351

 

Weeks before their April wedding the Atlanta weather had been beautiful – We had experienced above 80 degree temperatures, plenty of sun and not a bit of wind to be found – But on the morning of the wedding the weather became the total opposite…It was in the low 60’s, the wind was blowing the chairs everywhere and to top it off we were on the 14th floor for a outside ceremony – Despite all of that we dealt with the hand that we were given and out of this cold, windy and quite blustery day became the marriage Jonathan and Veronica
The ceremony was held on the 14th floor of Ventanas which is a gorgeous rooftop venue in the heart of downtown Atlanta…Jonathan was all smiles to see his bride for the first time coming down the spiral staircase.  As she made her way down the aisle you could not help but see the joy from both sets of parents.  Veronicas dad was Cool, Calm and very much so Collected as he proudly escorted his baby girl down the aisle
I feel so blessed to have worked with this couple. Veronica and Jonathan were both very easy to work with from day one, they knew what they wanted and had a great eye for small details…I pray for a lifetime of happiness for both of them (and plenty of babies) 🙂

Real Weddings: Love at UGA

Linnea and Vince Wedding Day 2Linnea and Vince Wedding Day

These two UGA grads could not have been any cuter on their wedding day. We were high up on the rooftop, overlooking the beautiful Atlanta city. On that day the forcast was 80% chance of rain, but on the wedding day we got nothing but “clear skies” and a beautiful bride.

Linnea + Vince met in Grad school at The University of Georgia, since that day they have been inseperable. Vince played football at UGA and Linnea was no doubt his biggest cheerleader!!! Which is why we stood there on August 11, 2013 watching this couple say “I DO” in front of 130 family and friends

Real Weddings: Dion + Kamaree 09.29.13

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways… There are SO many reasons I love Dion and Kamaree, they are fun, free spirited, kind, extremely giving (you get the picture) they are the couple that every wedding planner wants to have.  Kam is that Uptown girl and Dion is her laid back Downtown guy, and together they are the PERFECT balance for each other.  Kam has a love for all things Hip Hop and Dion is a lover of his hometown Yankees. What makes their bond so strong is that they are both Wedding/Event Photographers.  I have actually worked with this “dynamic duo” on several weddings.  They bring such a high energetic feel to every couple that they have worked with, which is why I wanted to give them the same experience on their special day. The day was Sept 29, 2013 at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta, GA.  The room was draped ever so softly and the alter was covered by beautiful soft pink and white roses.  There were so many beautiful details from beginning to end, it was absolutely breathtaking. The reception was one BIG party.  Seriously, no one wanted to eat, they wanted to dance…The DJ kept the crowd on the floor from the time they came in the room until the venue literally put us out (giggles) “One Sound and Entertainment” is THAT DJ!!! Let’s go ahead and introduce you to the rest of #TeamDobbins
