Engaged! Andrew & Steph : Piedmont Park

Get ready for my favorite type of engagement session: full of laughter, snuggling and of course LOTS of color! Andrew & Steph are Georgia Tech grads (Go Jackets!) who met by chance on a cruise a few years ago. It wasn't until they returned home that they realized they actually shared a group of friends on campus! I'm often amazed by how God chooses to step in and bring people together, and in this case it's certain that Andrew and Steph were made for each other. They are the best of friends, and their warm and friendly personalities made me realize from the moment we met that we were also a perfect match. We braved the cold in Atlanta this weekend and ventured into Piedmont Park to capture the last bits and pieces of fall color that still clung to the trees there. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Steph and I have one very convenient trait in common: We both laugh when we're nervous (aka, when there's a camera in our face). This makes capturing smiles and giggles that much easier, AND it has the added bonus of making me feel funny because she laughs no matter what corny joke I say! Haha.

I love evergreens. They manage to add a little bit of color to the otherwise gray palette that settles over Atlanta in the winter time.

Oh, hello there Atlanta skyline! So nice of you to show up. :)

I love the demure little smile Steph has in the photo on the left.

Since their session did take place in the winter, I thought it only fair that we worked in a few of the dead trees. I love the symmetry in these photos, too. :)

OK, so you've seen my favorite beautiful, cute, cuddly photos from their session. Now it's time for the blooper reel! :) I'm hoping Steph and Andrew don't mind, because these are too cute not to share! As I mentioned before, Steph laughs and laughs and laughs when she's nervous. Despite his understanding of this fact, Andrew is often caught unaware and ends up making the following "Wow, I think I just went deaf" face.

In the end, though, they return to their snuggling, and all is right with the world. :) Steph and Andrew, you two are so much fun to be around. Your warm and easy going personalities make it easy to feel like I've known you for a long time, and we haven't just met. I am SO incredibly excited to be part of your wedding next July!
