It's my favorite day of the year: NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY. (obviously) Not so obvious though are the best spots in Atlanta that you donut want to miss!Read More
You probably already know this about me, but if you don't, I love James Avery Jewelry. I got my first James Avery ring when I was 12 and I've kept collecting since.
Recently, I was invited to shop at the Peachtree Corners location! I got to pick out some new pieces that mix well with my collection.Read More
So excited to share my newest lapel pin design! I've been wanting to create a sleek Atlanta pin that I can wear. FINALLY got around to creating it. I created the lettering first by hand then adjusted digitally.Read More
In light of the recent passing of John C, Portman Jr. I wanted to share a paper I wrote on my favorite building of his. Mr. Portman truly built Atlanta. The skyline you know and the city we love. I have always wanted to meet him but some things are not meant to be. Rest In Peace. Thankful his designs transcend time. Please note this paper was written in 2014.
Known as one of the most influential and controversial architects of the twentieth century, John C. Portman Jr. not only created the modern Atlanta as it is today, but also built a design philosophy that breathes throughout his works, like the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. In his original architectural concept for the Atlanta Marriot Marquis, Portman expresses his principles and theories of design applied as the function, order and variety; nature and movement; and finally, human participation and spectating.Read More
Was up in NYC back in August for one of my good friend's bridal showers! I was able o see some great Broadway shows while in town: Groundhog Day & The Great Comet. I also finally got to try Cha Cha Matcha- a place that actually lived up to the hype!Read More
Well the day has come, and my pal Celine from Valhalla Bakery has opened her Doughnut exclusive shop Valkyrie Doughnuts! Let me just say, this is a place where dreams come true. Fluffy pillows of perfectly made vegan dough in square form topped with the most delicious glazes and additions.Read More
On my last visit home to Atlanta I had some fun with my puppy nephew, Wimbley! He's the cutest Mini Goldendoodle I have ever seen. Sometimes I think he looks like a little lamb or a baby polar bear. He loves belly rubs and swinging....on a people swing! Here are some favorite shots from the day. Check out his instagram to stay up to date with all of his adventures!Read More
I had the incredible opportunity to partner again with Igers Orlando and Universal Orlando for WWIM14. I was able to stay at the new Loew's Sapphire Falls Resort and photograph the parks at sunrise, then visit them in the afternoon! I had such an amazing time, even at Horror Nights (If you saw my face in the 3D house you'd say otherwise).Read More
I was so exited to head to Chattanooga recently to find out the gender of her baby! It was a beautiful day filled with lots of blue ;)
Everyone was so excited to find out what Baby Z would be! My guess was a boy and...Read More
I had such a blast shooting the kick-off for Evan Taylor Jones' first tour!
Evan's voice is one of the smoothest I've heard in a long time. If you were to mix Leon Bridges, prince, and Pink Floyd you'd get Evan. He can pretty much sing anything.Read More
Back again for April's round 2! I was invited to attend Universal Orlando's instameet for #WWIM13 along with local Orlando photographers! I had such a blast meeting and shooting with old and new friends alike and though it started out with an hour or so long thunderstorm, it made for an evening full of amazing moments.Read More
Things have been a bit busy around here at R.Carmen! SO very thankful for that.
April was such an exciting month that I had to split it into two posts! The first covers adventures to Disney World, St.Pete, and Atlanta; the second covers the Universal Orlando instameet I had the opportunity to shoot at!Read More
Happy 2016! I've decided this year to have a round up of the month's adventure.
I got my Fujifilm X-T10 back on Christmas Eve and it's been a blast. I started out the year back in Atlanta but didn't have my camera on me too much.I got back to Orlando I saw one of the most vibrant sunsets.
(For those of you who don't know, I love color and sunsets)Read More
Happy fourth of July!

At the beginning of 2015, I embarked on a trip to Hong Kong and Malaysia. I posted a lot of my iPhone photos on my instagram under the tag #whereintheworldisrebeccacarmen, but I haven't shared many other photographs of my trip. So I decided it was about time to start sharing some photos and memories from my incredible trip.Read More
