Welcome to the Horn Photography and Design Blog

We are an Atlanta Wedding Photography and Videography husband and wife team. It is here that we will share our most recent weddings, shoots, tips and tricks for engage couples and even behind the scenes business tips & tricks.

Atlanta Wedding Photography

We are a North Georgia husband and wife wedding photography team located in Dahlonega Georgia. In addition to offering wedding photography we also offer wedding videography. We delightfully serve all of Georgia with down home southern charm, class and style. Our studio is located in Dahlonega, GA. We love to have engaged couples in for a “Wine + Cheese” consultation. If the drive through the mountains is a bit far, then we also do wedding consultants via Skype.

Husband and Wife Team

My husband and I have traveled to several beautiful cities capturing weddings (San Antonio Texas, Waterford Wisconsin , Miami Florida, just to name a few). Our life goes beyond photography as well. We both love traveling, woodworking, hiking, biking, camping and time with family + friends. We limit our weddings to 30 per year to ensure we balance work and adventure. Our goal is to approach each wedding from our unique perspective and to capture moments of pure love + joy. Whether we are shooting in North Georgia, Florida, or beyond, our cameras are an extension of our hearts and souls.
