Leah was just married 5 days ago, though a few months back we got to capture her bridal portraits. So many great images to share. Here’s a sneak until I can get to the full post!
Leah and Michael were married today. The music was the best I’ve ever experienced at a wedding. Full choir, swing/jazz (forgive my ignorance on this one) band, violinist, pianist, and more. Never have I experienced music so varied, and masterfully performed. So it was only fitting to have a music sheet as the background of their ring shots. Big props to Ryan, Taken’s other main photog, who thought of the idea! Great team :) Congrats Leah and Michael!
At this very moment (well not if you are reading this like a week from now) I’m editing this very lovely bride’s wedding… and baking …. and fighting off the temptation to blog the last two weddings and newborn shoot I have yet shared. Back to editing!!!! (and rising… the dough.)
It’s been a while, but that doesn’t mean I’m not shooting. This wedding seems like it’s a blast from the past, but it just happened earlier this year. Sweet couple; breathtaking details; Lasting memories. Wedding Planner: Rhonda Martinez (you were amazing :) Second Main Photographer: Ryan Lee (you rocked the details!) Light Assistant: Catie Hickman (work them arms!)
I’m so excited to announce a new service Taken will provide: LifeStyle Children Photography. The aim is capture the beauty of your child/children/best friends daily lives, as seen by you, candidly captured. Many of you know that I have three kids, and as a photographer I try to ensure that I capture the daily grind often. As I have shared these images on Facebook, the images have always received lots of postive feedback. It seems that these unscripted moments resonated with you too. So now, Taken offers a limited number of LifeStyle sessions. Learn more about the pricing… but first, see my family’s personal story told in photographs of the last 3 years (hence the watermark changes).
This beautiful wedding marked many “firsts” in my wedding photography career: Taken’s first Jewish ceremony, first sunset outside wedding, first Forsyth wedding, and lastly first wedding with Simply Savannah Events. The evening was breathtaking. Yliana was stunning and Nick was quite dashing. Overall the evening was too brief to absorb the grandeur of it all. So blessed that Yliana and Nick chose Taken to be their photographer to capture these once-in-a-lifetime images.

It’s been awhile since I and Derek Scearcé shot this wedding. So glad that the charm of a wedding day endures so that I can share even it’s a tad belated. Kayla and Nick, thank you SO much for sharing your wedding day with me. It was a blast getting to know your friends and family while witnessing the jokes and tender moments that occurred throughout your day. You have a wide community of support that surrounds you. I can’t wait to watch your family blossom. Venue: Georgia Southern Botanical Garden Day of Coordinator: Posh, Petals, and Pearls
Josh Reddick, a professional baseball player for the
A couple of weeks ago I had the sheer pleasure of crafting the cover image for Pooler Magazine of celebrity hairstylist, Dennis Stokely. Dennis knows his way around a studio set. Having been on more shoots than I could count I was schooled people – schooled! Though I was the master mind behind the lighting and scene, Dennis took lead on the camera angle and pose. We were a duo that danced a snazzy dance. Next week I’ll share more images from Josh Reddick‘s session for the Effingham Magazine. Hugs! Alicja
Happy Belated Halloween. A mother of three and I do all things late. So falling in line is posting images of my kiddos’ Halloween portraits :) Alia, my oldest was Cinderella; my youngest, Ava, was Tinkerbell. Yep, Taken jumps in the deep end and crafts child portraiture too. Thanks for letting me share! Hugs, Alicja
