We are Orlando + Lissette and together we are Viridian Images Photography. A husband and wife wedding photography team based in Atlanta but available for beautiful stories anywhere.
From the Latin term viridis, meaning “green”, Viridian is a medium blue-green shade that resembles a rich teal. It was also the name of a green design movement in the late 90’s. For us it’s simply a play on Lissette’s beautiful green eyes and the images they generate through a camera. At a very young age she got her first Nikon 35mm film camera and immediately convinced her parents to convert the laundry room into a darkroom. She’s been shooting ever since! Also coming from an artistic background, Orlando developed drawing, painting and animation skills that led to awards and scholarships for his work. Our marriage not only formed a strong loving friendship and a family, but a mutual passion for visual art. Thus Viridian Images was born, fusing our individual creative abilities into one distinctly artistic style of lifestyle wedding photography. We shoot mainly for candid moments when our subjects are camera unaware, while lightly blending in natural portraits. How cool is it that we get to meet new people, document the best day of their lives and gain new friends; all while doing what you truly love in the process? It’s fantastic!
We like good music, interesting design, vacation getaways, volunteer work, dining out with friends and all things Italian. Most of all, we love photography as our way to express a sense of what’s happening in the moment. So the feeling comes through even years from now. We don’t take pictures. We make fine art from your memories.
If you like what you see, we’d love to talk to you about your wedding.
