Like I said in my last post, we were crazy busy in the month of May. I didn't get chances to shoot every week, but I did travel to Newnan, Georgia (about an hour SW of Atlanta) for a wedding one of the weekends in May. It was an outdoor wedding located at Dunaway Gardens. Absolutely beautiful! The reception was held there as well. The gardens were stunning... a photographers dream! I had a hard time choosing which image to post.

Honestly, I have no idea what kind of plant this is... They really look like blue grapes - maybe they are. I thought they were beautiful, though, so I spent a few minutes shooting them at different angles. I was intrigued by the contrast of the bright blues of the grapes/blossoms, the reds in the vines and the deep greens of the leaves. Because it was later in the day, the soft ambient light really set them off, leaving shadowy areas to create depth. Overall, I'm happy with how this shot turned out.
