A few weeks ago, I had one of my favorite shoots of the year at The Goat Farm in Atlanta. For those not familiar, The Goat Farm is an arts community located in an old industrial area just outside of the the middle of the city. And, yes, they do have goats there, as well as chickens and roosters running around to keep an eye on you!
The occasion was Amber & Galen's engagement. I had worked with Amber a year or so ago at another great location, the old Habersham Mills in Clarkesville to create images for her website (she's a fitness instructor). Those turned out great so I was not surprised that when she called me about shooting her engagement photos, she wanted to return there. Unfortunately, that's become a busy place and they had no openings to we turned to The Goat Farm which was a stroke of luck because it was a great setting.
Amber had a vision for a very elegant look to the session and I was very excited to help her pull it off. The team included a stylist and makeup person and we were set to go! Rain threatened to cause problems but we were able to work around that with no issues and even embraced the conditions to help provide a moody, romantic look. For lighting, I used my Profoto B2 Location kit, which has become my go-to location gear. Some shots were lit with one head while others used the second head as well. I went natural light for a handful of the shots also.
Amber & Galen proved to be great in front of the camera and needed little direction and we all were very happy with the results.
