Hey friends! What’s going on! I just got back from Anime Weekend Atlanta a.k.a. AWA a couple days ago! I’m going to be getting my recaps out sooner rather than later after these conventions, probably within a week or two after! So let’s get going!
AWA one of Atlanta’s biggest anime conventions, right up there with MomoCon! It’s location is at the Renaissance Waverly and Cobb Galleria in north west Atlanta, right along the perimeter. It shares the month with DragonCon, since it’s usually 3-4 weeks after. As many of you know DragonCon is massive. AWA although much smaller than it’s multi-genre counterpart, is not easily overshadowed. Boasting an attendance last year of over 20,000, it’s still quite a large convention! There’s tons of things to do like shop in their big dealers room, check out artists’ alley, watch the music acts (all the way from Japan), and of course the cosplay, which I like best. :]
The weather during this convention is usually mild and beautiful! This weekend, unfortunately, it was mild and crummy. All weekend. It’s ok! We rolled with the punches and we still got lots of awesome shots! I spent most of my time working with my friends and clients, running in and out of the convention center trying to stay dry, but also get awesome shots. I had the pleasure of shooting with Cindy, Bri, Alex, Lynn, Sarah, and Leslie this weekend! :]
On Sunday, I finally got a chance to do a formal shoot with Narrendor. We decided to run over to The Goat Farm super early on Sunday to do a shoot of her Anders from Dragon Age! It’s a spectacular location, and you should definitely check it out. Look out on my instagram for photos to pop up.
I really love this convention. I get great photos, work with great people, and get to hang out with my friends in Atlanta! I love this city. Maybe one day… I’ll move up there. :]

Until next time Atlanta, which happens to be… Thursday! :]
Thanks for reading!
