Kirsten + Corey | Perimeter Church Engagement Session

Kirsten + Corey | Perimeter Church Engagement Session

Kirsten + Corey | Perimeter Church Engagement Session I will admit, I was a little nervous about Corey’s choice of location for he and Kirsten’s engagement session as I’d never been there, and I knew there was some active construction going on.  However I arrived early as I usually do to scout the area out, and I was SO excited!  This spot is a dream with pretty light and some great variety and natural settings.  We had a great time exploring the grounds and encountered lots of wildlife (a momma duck with lots of ducklings!) along the way.  Kirsten + Corey had a gorgeous little gardens wedding this fall that I can’t wait to share!...
Jordan + Patrick | Chattahoochee River Engagement

Jordan + Patrick | Chattahoochee River Engagement

Jordan + Patrick | Chattahoochee River Engagement Jordan and Patrick are getting married next spring in Charleston (eeekk!!!!) and I’m SO excited!  A good photographer friend referred the to me, and it turned out that we have so many mutual friends!  Patrick is a fly fisherman, and when Jordan requested a river setting for their engagement session I loved that idea as well, because it was so them.  I scouted for a bit trying to find the perfect river engagement session spot,  which brought us to the Chattahoochee Coffee Company in Atlanta. It’s a little tricky to get to, and I’m not totally sure we weren’t breaking any rules (shhhhh) however this place was just unreal….. so may cute and unique spots, and of course the gorgeous Chattahoochee River.  We had fun exploring the grounds and laughing, and even though Jordan got about 100 mosquito bites she was a trooper!  You two – I’m so excited to celebrate with you soon!  xoxo...
Hayley + Daniel | Oakland Cemetery Engagement

Hayley + Daniel | Oakland Cemetery Engagement

Hayley + Daniel | Oakland Cemetery Engagement I remember the first day that I met Hayley.  I was fresh out of college, even more fresh out of school to obtain my paralegal certificate, and walking into the doors of my very first professional job.  That first day was super fun – my new boss took us all out to lunch that day to celebrate and Hayley and I had similar backgrounds and were the same age.  We only worked together for a year, as I had a baby and didn’t return to that job after I had my son.  Hayley and I continued to remain friends (mostly via facebook) and I saw her go to law school, I had another baby, she met Daniel, and then I saw they were engaged!  When she reached out to inquire about photographing their engagement session in Atlanta (as their wedding will be held in Alabama) – I was so excited! We started our engagement session in Grant Park, a quaint neighborhood in Atlanta, and found some abandoned railroad tracks (which are just a short time away from being turned into the next extension of the Atlanta Beltline).  From there we ventured to Historic Oakland Cemetery – which is a surprisingly perfect setting for an engagement session (that white wall??  gah!  perfection!)  I had never shot there before, and will certainly be heading there again!  We finished our session at the Grant Park Coffeehouse and then on to Jackson Street bridge for some sunset Atlanta skyline engagement photos!  All of these locations were in a close radius to each other, and I had...

Audrey + JP | Lullwater Park Engagement Session This sweet couple first met online – JP was studying in Indonesia and Audrey’s sister had lived in Indonesia for 5 years, so they had something to talk about right off the bat!  They took a trip to California for their two year anniversary and to visit Audrey’s family, and JP totally surprised her by popping the question while they were sitting on a bench together and watching the ocean.  So romantic! I met Audrey, JP, and their dog Beauty at Lullwater Preserve on the Emory University campus in Atlanta for their engagement session, and we had a great time exploring the woods on a beautiful fall day to find the perfect little spots for their photos.
