I've been asked over the years if I would ever teach any classes.  I never knew exactly what I would teach or how I would teach.  After a lot of thought, I've decided that I would like to give this teaching thing a try.  I think I'll really enjoy it!  So my first workshop is going to cover the basics.  Are you a novice photographer who wants to learn more about your camera, how to shoot and edit?  Then this workshop will be Perfect for you!  Here are the details:

 

Intro to Pro Workshop

When:  March 10 and March 11, 2018

Where:  Location TBA in Blue Ridge, GA

What we will cover:   This workshop is designed for the newer photographer who is still learning and wanting to expand their knowledge so they can take better photos and maybe even start a business of their own.  Day one we will cover how to shoot in manual, how to start editing in Lightroom, what branding is and how to brand yourself, and any and all questions you have about camera, shooting, editing and marketing basics.  You will have homework on day one too so come ready to shoot and learn!  Day two will be a group shooting day. We will have a photo shoot set up so you can watch how I photograph a subject and learn how to pose someone yourself, how to work with different lighting and some troubleshooting as well...like what happens if you have a difficult client or not so great weather or light? All the basics and all your questions answered!

How much:  $350, a nonrefundable deposit of $150 is due to book your spot.  The remaining amount is due on or by the first day of the workshop 3/10/18.

What to bring:  You'll be required to bring your dslr camera, laptop and have Lightroom.

 

To book your spot now, just go to the Store page on my website and add the Intro to Pro Deposit to your cart!  Once you've paid your deposit, you'll be added to my private facebook group and receive more info about the workshop!  I can't wait to see you guys there!!

 

Love, Amber

Sandi and Matt's Amazingly Beautiful and Simply Sweet Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/8/sandi-and-matts-amazingly-beautiful-and-simply-sweet-wedding Sandi and Matt's Amazingly Beautiful and Simply Sweet Wedding

 

Sandi and Matt were married at Tennessee Riverplace in Chattanooga, TN.  I was in love as soon as I arrived.  The architecture alone is swoon worthy.  I knew the day was going to be light hearted and fun because Sandi and Matt were such a fun couple to photograph during their engagement session...and it truly was!

Sandi and I hit it off right away especially when we both found out each other's love for the show Friends (I mean who doesn't quote Friends lines at least 5 times a day, right?).  I was so super excited to see that her cake topper was Friends inspired and read "You're My Lobster."  Then, as an added bonus and surprise, her brother (who performed the ceremony) started the ceremony by saying, "We are gathered here today on this joyous occasion to celebrate the special love that Sandi and Matt share.  It is a love based on giving and receiving...as well as having and sharing.  And the love that they give and have is shared and received.  And through this having and giving...and sharing and receiving...we too can share and love and have and receive."  It may have been the greatest ceremony of all time.

Sandi's dress was spectacular and she paired it with...bare feet.  (How could you not love her, right??)  She's also one of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen and is even prettier because she doesn't act like she knows how pretty she is.  Her down-to-earth vibe was echoed throughout the whole wedding and it was completely precious.

The bridesmaids were elegant and classic in long, fitted black gowns.  The color scheme was black, white and blush.

Matt and his groomsmen were chic and handsome and decked out to the nines in their black tuxes and black bow ties, including his grooms-woman who totally rocked her tux.  Matt was escorted down the aisle by his and Sandi's two sons, who were also very dapper in their tuxes.  (Their sons were best friends in school and that's how Sandi and Matt met...could their story get any cuter??)

Their first dance was after sunset and was lit by sparklers being held by their guests surrounding them.  It was breathtaking.

Sandi and Matt's wedding was truly everything you would want it to be...beautiful, fun, elegant yet relaxed, filled with laughs and with a lot, a lot of love.  Enjoy!

Amy and Ross ~ A Classically Beautiful Military Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/3/amy-and-ross-a-classically-beautiful-military-wedding Amy and Ross ~ A Classically Beautiful Military Wedding

 

When you think of elegant weddings, this is the kind of wedding you think of.  Military and navy blues, creams, golds, periwinkles and pinks all against gorgeous autumn scenery.  Lace and diamonds, all of Amy's details were soft and elegant.  I loved the traditional and classic charm that their wedding had.  Ross and Amy's love for one another can clearly been seen and felt in all their photos.  It's always fun to see a couple get down and have a ball together at their reception, too!

Elizabeth and Charles ~ A Wildfire Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/3/elizabeth-and-charles-a-wildfire-wedding Elizabeth and Charles ~ A Wildfire Wedding

 

When I found out that Elizabeth and Charles were having their wedding at Shiloh Stables in North Carolina, I was so excited.  Elizabeth has been riding horses and barrel racing for years, so I couldn't wait to incorporate some photos of them with her horse at the stables.

The day of their wedding, there were several wildfires that had broken out in the surrounding forests.  I was so surprised as I drove up and saw that one of the fires was literally right next to their venue.  It was hauntingly beautiful.  The decor was a mix of rustic elements and vintage stable equipment, furs and pelts, metals and burlap and everything cool you'd expect to see in a classic western film.  All of that was paired beautifully with lace and pumpkins and brightly colored flowers. 

The ceremony site was by the pond and had a gorgeous old wooden cross draped with lace at the front of the aisle.  The autumn foliage behind the cross made for a perfect place to exchange vows.

The reception was intimate and fun.  The food was catered by Doyle's and absolutely delicious!  Their cake topper was pretty much the cutest and most personalized one I'd ever seen.  I loved their individual pies with H's and hearts on top.

I took Elizabeth and Charles out to take some photos with her horse around sunset.  The wildfire in the background was so incredibly unique and really made for some amazing photos.  The last picture I took was after it was completely dark.  The fire is ablaze behind Elizabeth and just breathtaking.

I'm sure you're going to enjoy this western themed wedding.

April and Andreas - A German Love Story http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/2/april-and-andreas---a-german-love-story April and Andreas ~ A German Love Story

 

April and Andreas had one of the most unique weddings I've ever had the pleasure of photographing.  The two live in Germany but decided to get married in the U.S. where April and her family are from.  They wanted to include a true German custom, so they performed a log cutting ceremony.  The tradition of the sawing of the log represents the first obstacle the couple must overcome in their marriage.  By cutting through the log, they overcome the obstacle.  It was such a cool ceremony to witness and photograph!  April and Andreas made sure to have a legit log, too.  They truly worked as a team to saw that thing in half!

I loved April's gown and hair and makeup.  She embodied classic elegance and beauty.  The red sash she added to her dress was a perfect touch.

Their decor was filled with autumn colors and all things apple.  There was cold and hot cider to enjoy and baskets filled with apples for guests to take as favors.  The couple has a love for Star Wars, which I think you'll see in some of their cakes, props and photos.  Be sure to also check out their uber cool rings and ring box that the groom made himself.

April and Andreas truly had a personalized and beautiful wedding.  I know you'll enjoy it.

Morgan and Craig's Chic Autumn Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/1/morgan-and-craigs-chic-autumn-wedding Morgan and Craig's Chic Autumn Wedding

 

Morgan's wedding was everything I dreamed of as a little girl.  A gorgeous venue, a princess gown, perfect weather and, most importantly, her true love.  Watching Morgan and Craig together throughout the day, their warmth and sweetness towards each other, was refreshing and inspiring.

I think everyone viewing these photos from their wedding is going to be absolutely in love.  In love with the venue and all the details and simply in love with love.

Kristine and Brett's Romantic Woodland Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/1/kristine-and-bretts-romantic-woodland-wedding Kristine and Brett's Romantic Woodland Wedding

 

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Kristine and Brett's wedding.  Kristine is originally from New Zealand and I would be lying if I didn't say I was girl crushing her accent the whole day.  The bridesmaids dresses were super cool.  Every bridesmaid got to choose her own top to go with everyone's matching skirt.  It was lovely.  The bouquets were simplistic and elegant.  The happiness of the day was infectious. 

During the ceremony, several guests were asked to participate in Brett and Kristine's hand fasting.  Each color represented something different.  It was so special!

The reception had a world wide theme.  Each table represented a different place in the world.  The food truck served a global inspired fusion menu that was incredible.  My favorite part of the reception was the pie.  Yes, they had pies instead of cake.  I was in heaven!

I loved so much about this wedding.  I'm sure you all will, too.

Susan and Robby's Vintage Warehouse Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2017/1/susan-and-robbys-vintage-warehouse-wedding  

Susan and Robby's Vintage Warehouse Wedding

 

Susan and Robby are one of the coolest couples around so it only made sense that they chose one of the coolest venues for their wedding day.   The two century old buildings that make up the Corner District couldn't have been more perfect to host their wedding.  Susan's favorite color is purple and the color really complements her beautifully.  She looked angelic.  Also, the hues of lilac and the delicate vintage details that Susan chose added the right amount of softness to the industrial warehouse and old general store venue.  I truly loved that everything about their wedding fit their personalities to a tee.  Susan and Robby are such sweet and gentle people and yet, they have a rock n roll edge.  Their wedding day was that and more.  Check it out.

Sarah and Josh's Sweet Southern Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2016/10/sarah-and-joshs-sweet-southern-wedding Sarah and Josh's Sweet Southern Wedding

 

This is honestly one of my favorite weddings to date.  The atmosphere was relaxed and fun.  Everyone was happy.  It was just a sweet and simple southern wedding that was shared with family and close friends.  The day was all about Sarah and Josh.

Sarah and Josh chose to have their wedding at Camp Wetoga in Morganton, GA.  It was so beautiful.  From the creek and little bridges to the fields and hardwood trees, Camp Wetoga provided the most gorgeous backdrop for the event.

There were a number of things about this wedding that were a little different and that I completely loved.  First of all, there was no dinner.  That doesn't sound like anything I'd be happy with (if y'all know how much I love to eat) BUT, instead of dinner, they offered a buffet of desserts.  They were absolutely delicious and made for a beautiful display.  Secondly, the bride arrived by fire truck.  I mean, how cool is that?  Also pretty fitting since the groom, groom's father and mother, and all the groomsmen are fire fighters.  Lastly, they busted out karaoke at the end of the night.  KARAOKE!  Who doesn't love a good karaoke night?!

Enjoy this sweet, country, summer evening wedding.  I know you will!

That's a pretty lengthy title, but when you see the photos from their wedding, I think you'll completely agree with why I had to add all those words!  Courtney and Tim had an extraordinary wedding at Willow Creek Falls and Vineyard in Blue Ridge, GA.  I was in love as soon as I walked through the doors and saw all the deep jewel tones, moss and candles everywhere.  It was dark and romantic and fantastic!  I knew the wedding day was going to be a blast because the engagement session with Courtney and Tim was so much fun.  They are two of the most likeable and hilarious people, not to mention gorgeous together.  I'm sure you're going to fall in love with this wedding and this couple, too...

Heather and CJ's Colorful Rustic Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2016/8/heather-and-cjs-colorful-rustic-wedding Heather and CJ's Colorful Rustic Wedding

 

Heather and CJ got married at the Densmore Farm in Cleveland, GA.  It was pouring the rain as I drove to the venue and as soon as I arrived, the rain stopped!  The weather gave them the best of both worlds...the luck of rain on your wedding day and then clear skies for the photos and ceremony!

The venue was a wonderful choice for their country styled wedding.  Heather had chosen bright, happy colors for her decor and bridesmaids.  Each bridesmaid had their own color.  It was beautiful.  The bride herself looked gorgeous.  She even wore hot pink heels under her wedding dress.  How fun and cute is that??  The glow stick send off at the end of the night was a fun addition to match the color scheme!

I think their favors were my most favorite ever.  Not only did they have a yummy candy bar, but they also had a table filled with soaps and chapsticks.  I'm not saying I grabbed 5 or so on my way out...but I'm not saying I didn't, either.  ;)

If this wedding doesn't make you smile, then I don't know one that will.  Congratulations, Heather and CJ!

I Love My Body 2016 http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2016/8/i-love-my-body-2016 I Love My Body 2016

 

Every year I do a free event and photo shoot called I Love My Body.  Anyone is welcome to attend.  Every year I change what we do in the photos, but the basic theme is the same...to love yourself. 

I was a professional model for over 20 years.  While that career took me all over the world and gave me wonderful opportunities and experiences, it also left me battling some serious self worth and body image issues.  I struggled  with anorexia, abused diet pills and found myself sick, hating my body and myself.  I felt no real purpose if I wasn't physically beautiful and "perfect."  After I had my daughter,  I really started feeling badly about myself.  I pretty much stopped eating and dropped down to 112lbs at 5'10" tall.  My hair began to fall out and I just didn't feel well all around, but I was thin, which is all I cared about at the time.  Then one night, I was laying in bed with my daughter.  I felt like a lightning bolt hit me and I sat up and felt like God said to me, "look how foolish you're being and the example you're setting for your daughter."  I felt so ashamed as I looked down at my sweet girl.  I was overcome with emotion.  Would I want her to feel this way about herself?  Would I want her to put her health on the line just to be thin?  Did I really want her to watch me behave the way I was?  Absolutely not.  It was up to me to change myself for her sake at least.  And I did.  Slowly but surely.

Soon after, I quit modeling and began my photography business full time.  I photographed families and weddings and all those yummy, happy moments in people's lives.  It made me happy.  It was beautiful.  These people were beautiful.  These moments were beautiful.  But women, very often times, would feel very insecure in front of my camera.  They would ask me to "take off a few pounds" for them in photoshop.  They would want to hide behind other family members.  They would want to see the back of my camera and when doing so, hate something about themselves in the photos.  It was crazy.  They weren't able to see themselves the way I did or the way their family members did at all!  I decided there was a need for me to speak out about my own experiences in hopes of helping people.  To help them get past this crazy idea that society has burdened us with.  That we aren't worthy unless we are physical perfection.  To blow up this lie that we all live under.  Because it is truly a lie.  At my most "beautiful" I was certainly not happy and I should've been, right?  Well, I wasn't.  I am much, much happier now at my 195lb post second baby weight.  It's because I now know my value.  I'm able to see through God's eyes, my husband's eyes and my children's eyes.  They want me.  My character.  My effort in their lives.  They're not going to remember what weight I was on our family vacations.  They're not going to remember what I looked like in my bathing suit.  My children will remember me being there and playing with them on the beach.  They will remember my presence and whether I was happy or not.  That's it!  And those moments will be beautiful.

This year, I decided to do our photo shoot in my studio.  I wanted the photos to be beautiful, natural and have a bit more dramatic lighting than the previous years.  I wanted the women that came to leave feeling worthy, empowered and beautiful.  We took some simple head shots and group shots.  Then I had the ladies write a positive hashtag on plain white tees.  After that, I asked them to write on an index card a negative lie that they tell themselves...and we lit it on fire.  Burned that lie up.  It felt good watching them set those lies on fire.  It also upset me to see what these wonderful women thought of themselves.  They didn't see each other's note cards and I thought it was interesting how many of them wrote "not good enough."  The last studio shots we did were in gowns.  I wanted to photograph these gorgeous women in gorgeous gowns also.  We ended the event with a free yoga session thanks to Amanda and Christina at Yoga and Wellness of Blue Ridge.

I hope this event was helpful for the lovely ladies that came and I hope the photos may help other people as well.  Looking forward to our 2017 photo shoot next year.  <3

Elisabeth and Nick's Dreamy Mountain Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2016/8/elisabeth-and-nicks-dreamy-mountain-wedding Elisabeth and Nick's Dreamy Mountain Wedding

 

Happy brides are the prettiest brides and I'm sure that everyone who saw Elisabeth on her wedding day will agree with that.  She exuded joy the entire day and she was absolutely stunning.  

It was a gorgeous day at Brasstown Valley Resort.  The mountain views there are truly unparalleled.  The Creekside Pavilion was the perfect choice for Elisabeth and Nick's intimate ceremony and the reception following at the Sunset Pavilion showcased all of those grand views. 

Elisabeth and Nick's love and respect for one another was obvious the entire day and I felt very privileged to be able to photograph it.

Tara and Josh's Southern Wedding Merriment http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2016/7/tara-and-joshs-southern-wedding-merriment Tara and Josh's Southern Wedding Merriment

 

Tara and Josh's wedding day had all the essentials for a perfect country affair.  Cowboy boots, antlers, a Yeti fish filled groom's cake and more was enough to make any southern girl swoon.  I was particularly in love with the selfie sticks on each table at the reception!  Tara balanced all the rustic decorations beautifully with soft pastels.  Check it out!

Courtney and Jake's Sweet Tennis Club Wedding http://www.ambercatherphotography.com/blog/2016/7/courtney-and-jakes-sweet-tennis-club-wedding Courtney and Jake's Sweet Tennis Club Wedding

 

The first thing you notice about Courtney and Jake both is their sweet and loving nature.  They have an incredible love not only for each other but also for Jesus Christ.  Their wedding was filled with family, friends, and Christ.  The details were simplistic and classic, all the way down to their Coca Cola favors.  The colors were beautiful pastel mint, pinks and purples.  The Blue Ridge Swim and Tennis Club was the perfect setting for their event.  This wedding was truly a breath of fresh air.  Just see for yourself...
