WEA Photography – An Atlanta full service portrait studio.

With the upcoming studio move to our new space in Inman Park – just steps away from Atlanta’s eastside beltline,  we wanted to take an opportunity re introduce ourselves. 

His name is William, hers is Rhonda.  We are a husband|wife team & studio owners.  William is the chief photographer , while Rhonda handles all the other details that ensure that your experience is the best that it can be. 

We strive to give a phenomenal experience & stellar service to all of our clients.  Starting with the initial consultation then on to the photo session and lastly the reveal/ordering session.  

We are a Full Service Photography Studio.  What exactly does that mean to you the potential client?  First lets take a look at what we are not.

Shoot & burn photography – S&B photography can be simply described as,  We do a photo shoot,  I send you a link to a gallery for you to pick your favorite digital copies to edit, I edit the digital copies and send them back to you – DONE – That’s it.  You may post a couple pics on social media & the rest get stored on a phone that will most likely be upgraded and forgotten.   The photos that you put time into planning outfits for, traveling to location or studio for, will end up forgotten as you add cell phone photos and other items to your phone.  The memories from this mode of operations do not last long. It’s impersonal & it leaves the burden on the client to get print’s, wall art and albums on their own time – which as busy as people are nowadays, it will most likely be on the back burner for a long time.  We are NOT a shoot & burn photography business.

We are a one stop shop full service photography studio.  What that means is when you book with us, all you have to do is show up w/a bag of outfits.  You don’t have to go to the mall to get your make up done (as we have a staff of hair\make up artists that can get you photo shoot ready)  Once the shoot is over, we won’t just send you a link and let you fend for yourself.   We typically meet with our clients about a week later or in some cases the same day to reveal all the awesome goodness that we created together.  During this time together,  you will also be able to see & touch the heirloom products that we offer.  This will absolutely  make your photo session a long lasting memory. instead of just a pic on your phone|social media

Met this NPC nationally qualified physique competitor and incredible young lady when she retained my services for an off season shoot in December.  It was obvious from the start that we had the same work ethic as we knocked out a number of outfits in a short amount of time.
We teamed up again twice in May and the results were outstanding, here’s some from the 1st shoot in May.

Boudoir Session Atlanta w/ Nardia

@nardiathemodel

Had an opportunity a while back to connect with Nardia via social media.  In addition to being a lovely model, she is also a flight attendant – so we had a chance to link up for a boudoir session in Atlanta while she was laid over for the night.
We ended up shooting two outfits lingerie and nude silhouettes during sunset .  The results were fabulous – scroll down to see.   For additional phenomenal images from the shoot – click here or the fans tab on the menu above.

Testimonials

“Shooting with Will is an experience I’ll never forget. Will definitely knows how to work the camera and make you feel so confident and comfortable. The boudoir photo shoot made me feel so beautiful and really begin to love every part of my body. He highlights and captures such intimate moments. I’m so honored and consider myself so lucky to work with him”

I have always wanted to do a boudoir photo shoot but never had the courage to do one because it can be really scary and intimidating and I had never found a photographer I was comfortable with seeing me in that state until I found William. What I liked most was that how the shoot went was totally in my hands and I had full control over what I wore, which makes the experience easy. William has the best support as well, his wife supports all of his endeavors and having her there while we shot made things more relaxed as well. They are both incredibly sweet and patient and that makes working with them so great. I highly recommend him for any of you photography needs. Plus, doing a shoot like this, is a great confidence booster.

My experience with William was incredible! I kept asking, “Is that REALLY ME?” You can see the talent in every one of his photos. William’s primary concern is that you (the model) is comfortable. No matter your shape, size, skin color, hair color… William will make you feel like you’re the only model he’s ever shot. William is a true artist: attentive, mindful of the story you want to portray, gives excellent feedback on what works and what doesn’t, and has an incredible eye for making things happen. The whole experience was worth every single penny. If you are looking to give someone (or yourself) a special gift, William and his team are true artists, true professionals, and truly wonderful to work with.

Will epitomizes professional! His work is like no other. He’s creative. He’s sophisticated. He’s comfortable. And In turn he produces the most magnificent work. We couldn’t be happier with our couples shoot & cant wait to do it all over again!

I recently had a boudoir photo shoot with William and it was the most awesome experience. I have wanted nice pictures for years for my husband but didn’t really want to go to a stranger. I met William through my husband, they went to the same school. When I got there he welcomed me into his home, by the way, which is a great place for a photo shoot. He chose the outfits I brought for me and designed different poses for all of them. He made me comfortable. I noticed in the background he had very beautiful seductive music to get me in that type of mindset which helped set the mood for great photos. I was highly impressed. I dont pose well and he helped me every step of the way. I have never seen myself look that great. It has helped me build a little more confidence in myself. I drove 8 hours there just to have him do this and it was well worth the drive. I recommend his expertise and service to anyone wanting to do this. I love his work, thank you William

As a female it has always made me nervous to go shoot with a photographer. I have always had to bring a friend with me or know the photographer on a personal level before I would go alone. When WEA photography reached out to me I did my research. He had great quality work and I liked the idea that his wife would be there. I finally decided to give him a try. Now 3 photo shoots with him later, I can’t wait to have a reason to shoot again. I’m a bodybuilding bikini competitor so I normally only like doing photo shoots when I am my leanest. Will talked me in to doing a shoot in my off season and to embrace my body all year round….. and he was right! I loves the pictures and gave them to family as a Christmas present. I would recommend WEA Photography  to anyone. Not just Fitness people or models.

I had been following William’s work for quite some time before I decided to reach out and ask him about possibly doing a shoot. I was nervous, scared, didn’t know what to expect. When I walked into his loft that first day, him and his wife met me with a huge smile and a hug, immediately helping me to feel much more at ease! His shots made me look at myself completely different- Seeing yourself in the mirror is one thing. Seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes is a whole new experience! Not only did he get me started with my modeling career, him and Rhonda have become family. I will forever be grateful for the professionalism, hard work, and dedication that is William

Shower Visuals

Recently had a client ask about something combining boudoir and water. My immediate thoughts were ‘please not another one of those tub shoots with ______ in the water with them’. To my surprise that was not her idea, she gave me creative freedom to craft the concept that your about to see. Due low temps, this could not have been done outdoors so I decided to use the spare shower in our studio dressing room for it.
I started out using a speed-light, but just ended up using the natural lighting that came from the back of the shower and some nifty camera adjusts along the way. Needless to say the client was pleased with the outcome..

Couple’s boudoir #2 w/ L&D

So my wife and I were at the airport in Atlanta about to travel on holiday to our yearly|personal marital retreat to the island of Aruba when a email came through. I took a cpl days to answer it as we were enjoying ourselves. Upon reading it, L had expressed a desire to do non traditional couples shoot. Their last couples shoot was a cookie cutter shoot that looked scripted so this one she wanted it to be different. During the consultation, she provided some frame work, but gave me creative control to go off script.
Her and D arrived at 630am the morning of shoot bearing delicious cookies and a open mind. We got the initial sunrise shots in about 40 degree weather and as u can see D was a trooper with her shirt off.. The rest is history, new friends were made and new projects with them are on the horizon. Enjoy!
