We are Chris + Melinda Golden Photography, a Husband and Wife Atlanta Wedding Photography Team

We’ll make you feel unique by capturing all the little details you have chosen to reflect your creative personality. We offer bold, clean, and timeless photography that doesn’t follow the current trends (just like you). We celebrate what makes you different from other couples whether that be a black wedding dress, games and puzzles during the reception, a tattoo station for guests (temporary of course), serving local craft beer, or a ceremony recessional to the Star Wars theme song. Let us tell your story with photography as unique as you are.

Meet Us

Just a little about us: we first met at a Casualties concert at the Masquerade in Atlanta, GA. We have been together ever since! We may have traded our studded leather jackets and mohawks for a more professional appearance, but we have not forgotten the punk spirit of individuality. We enjoy going on walks with our English Bull Terrier named Cypress, taking road trips, and hanging out at our local coffee shop.
