Engaged! Matthew & Miranda : Atlanta, GA

When my alarm clock rang at 7am Sunday morning, my first instinct was to curl deeper in the covers and return to my sweet dreams, but when I remembered why I had to wake up so early and I threw off the covers and jumped out of bed. It was finally time for Matthew & Miranda's engagement session! Miranda was a bridesmaid in Bill & Jena's wedding last year, so of course I was ecstatic when she contacted me about photographing her wedding in Amelia Island in May.

These two are such a sweet couple, and we had so much fun exploring Piedmont Park together. I didn't know this originally, but they got engaged in Piedmont Park early in the morning, so we couldn't have chosen a better time or place to celebrate their love. Not to mention, the early morning light was really amazing. Check out the warm glow it brings to their skin.

Hurray for the return of green grass! As you may have noticed, I pretty much always prefer to shoot outside if I can, and it's days like this that make me love being outside so much.

This long (an apparently very stubborn) winter almost made me forget how beautiful spring is in Atlanta. The city really come alive when the trees that have so long been skeletons turn bright green with new leaves. Despite the pollen and the weather's crazy mood swings, I love spring in Atlanta. It's such a beautiful time, and I was definitely excited to shoot among the azalea blooms in the park!

Ah, sweet bliss. I know I already posted this one, but I HAVE to post it again because it's my favorite :)

Like I said before, the early morning light was UNREAL.

Matt and Miranda, I had such a great time wandering around with you two and your little puppy. I am so pumped for your wedding in a few weeks, and I can't wait to see you again!
