Engagement

TJ & Libby { Atlanta, GA }

I love to be around people who are in love. It's why I enjoy my job so much! And these two are most certainly in love. It didn't take them long to settle into the session and feel comfortable snuggling, laughing and just being together.

They just look so cute and cozy!

Blog readers, meet Chloe. We aren't really sure what breed of dog she is, but she has the look of a pit bull and the sugary sweetness of a golden retriever. Just in case you hadn't noticed by now, I am head over heels in love with dogs, and I thoroughly enjoy any opportunity I get to play with them! Even though she was a bit hyper, she was able to be a good model for a few pictures.

Aww, kisses for daddy!

This next photo is proof that I can make people laugh! I was actually trying to get Chloe's attention, and saying her name over and over again wasn't working, so I barked at her. Libby immediately started cracking up, and I was able to snap this. I love it!

When Caryn and I were scoping out spots to shoot in, I happened to look up and see a few sets of stairs on the roof of the Baskin Robbins. I thought to myself, "Self, let's go investigate!" So we wandered upstairs and lo and behold, you can get all the way on the very top of the building! It isn't an incredibly tall building, but it was tall enough to make me happy :)

Aren't these two totally stylin'? I love their clothes! Libby assured me that TJ is the stylish one in the relationship, and they were so excited to be able to go shopping to pick out complimentary outfits for the shoot. Whoever did pick out these outfits did a great job, because they look super snazzy!

Where there are bright colors, I will stop and photograph :) You know I can't resist!

At this point, the sun had pretty much set, so we quickly ran back up to the rooftop we discovered earlier to utilize the last little bit of light that we could. I am so glad we did, too, because the clouds and the sky were so blue!

I love the tattoo Libby has across her wrist: "Yahweh Yireh," which translates to "Lord Provider".

Oodles of thanks go to Caryn, my Alpha Gam sister and friend, who volunteered to be the dog walker, bag carrier and living light stand for the evening. I love you, babe! You're amazing!

Kevin & Christine { Atlanta, GA }

Georgia Institute of Technology : Atlanta, GA

I don't even know where to start. I absolutely love these two! Christine is one of my sorority sisters, and I met her on Day 2 of recruitment my freshman year. She was so full of joy and excitement that we connected immediately, and she was one of the people who greatly influenced my decision to become an Alpha Gam. I was beyond excited when she called to tell me that she and Kevin were engaged, and I went to her apartment to meet with them two days later. I couldn't help but laugh, because I was asking them questions about what they were looking for and what they wanted their wedding to be like, and all Kevin said was, "All we really know is that it would be great for you to be our photographer!" How awesome is that?

I could go on forever about how amazing these two are, but then you'd never get to see their pictures! :) We decided to do their engagement session on the Georgia Tech campus because Kevin and Christine have so many memories here. We explored some of their favorite places, then went to eat at one of my favorite places- Doc Greens! Yum!

The next shot is definitely my favorite. I love the colors and the line of the bridge going over them, but what I love the most is how relaxed they look. It's one of those moments when they're just content to be near each other.

Next we headed to the top level of the student center parking deck so that we could utilize the last tiny bit of natural light left as the sun fell over the horizon. We also ended up with a great view of the Atlanta skyline, which was also really cool.

Kevin wanted to grab some shots by the campanile, and by this point we had almost no light to work with. That's when I grabbed my trusty flash and pocket wizards and began to play! It's so much fun for me when I run into an unexpected challenge and get to stretch my skills a bit. I love the way these photos turned out!

Jena & Bill { Atlanta, GA }

Kiss. Smile. Kiss. Smile. That's how this entire session went! Jena can hardly look at Bill without smiling. Throw in some kisses, and her face just beams with happiness. These two met while studying at Georgia Tech (Go Jackets!) and will be getting married at the Hunter Museum of American Art in August. Jena and Bill, I had so much fun hanging out with you, and I can't wait to celebrate your wedding with you!
