Shape Notes

Last month my good friend John Kelso was married to Jessica Harris in a small ceremony at the Holly Springs Primitive Baptist Church in Bremen, Georgia. John is a fantastic photographer from Atlanta. He and Jessica also take part in the tradition of Southern choral singing known as Sacred Harp singing, which was incorporated into their ceremony. In fact, Matt and Erica Hinton who made the seminal documentary on the subject, “Awake, My Soul” were in attendance.

After the ceremony and BBQ potluck reception, everyone went back in the church for more singing. Here is a video I took my my Nikon D800.
