Cherise + Joseph / Sweetwater Creek Park & The King and Queen Building

When I received our next couple’s inquiry, this is what was going on in my mind… The form that came in our email said, “Bride: Cherise Washington” and I read the rest of the form. Then, I went back to the email and read it again. I said to myself, “Cherise” then said, “Wait. OMG, Cherise Washington?!”

Jenny + Maarten / Home Sweet Home Atlanta Skyline Engagement

So, I remember at the very beginning of our business, someone told us that when you become photographers’ photographer, you know you made it. If that’s true, we are super duper happy and grateful! You see, Jenny is a spectacular photographer herself and quite an artist. Every time we are hired by a colleague, it’s really an honor and means that much more.

Shayla + Gregory / High Museum & Atlanta Skyline Engagement

I’m sure that we’ve all heard, “opposites attract”, right? From my experience, that’s very true, but at the same time, you gotta have a lot in common too. I love that Shayla + Gregory incorporated something that they love into their engagement shoot.

Grace + Russell / Delta Plane Museum Engagement

Grace + Russell / Delta Plane Museum Engagement

Some people have the gift of making you feel like family... To be able to make a total stranger feel like you've known them for years is something that you can't really teach.  It just comes naturally... That is something that Grace + Russell have - I call it magical.  So, how do we know them?  

Gabrielle + Phanna / Downtown Decatur & Roswell Mill Engagement Portraits

Gabrielle + Phanna / Downtown Decatur & Roswell Mill Engagement Portraits

So, is the world big or small?  Because there's a saying, "It's a big world out there" and then people say, "It's a small world..." So, which is it?  ;)  Well, for this story, it's a small world.  We got referred to Gabby + Phanna from one of other brides and then when they came to the shoot, they told us another crazy story!  

Emily + Cameron / McDaniel Farm Park River Engagement

Emily + Cameron / McDaniel Farm Park River Engagement

Perfection.  What does that really mean?  If it doesn't exist as people claim, then how does the definition of it exist?  In my opinion, perfection is real.... it's just about perspective.  Looking through these photos once again, I remember this day so clearly because it was perfect.

Mimi + John / Savannah River Rapids & Buckhead Atlanta Portraits

For Mimi + John's session, we got to see them not once, but twice!  They had a special engagement ceremony in Augusta back in May and so we did some portraits for them there, and then this month, they came up to Atlanta to get some city shots here.  

Brittney + Kyle / Piedmont Park Post Wedding Portraits

Brittney + Kyle / Piedmont Park Post Wedding Portraits

One of the most common questions we get is, "How do you get your clients?"  We meet them through many different ways, but one of the ways is at weddings!  We meet at least one engaged couple who is very interested in our photography and we book them!  And yes, this is how I met Kyle for the first time!  

Sharlene + Cedric / Athens Botanical Gardens & UGA Campus Engagement Portraits

Sharlene + Cedric / Athens Botanical Gardens & UGA Campus Engagement Portraits

I believe that everything happens for a reason.  That nothing is just a coincidence.  Even with our clients, I know that it's more than "just business".  There's more of a reason than just because they booked us.  I know because I believe in a God who is far bigger than that, and I believe that he has everything under control.  

Sara + Corey / Warehouse Engagement Portraits

Sara + Corey / Warehouse Engagement Portraits

Every shoot is special to us, but we got to do something very rare with Sara + Corey, and actually, this is the first time we've ever done this with a couple.  CAR POOL!  We picked them up from their place and drove a little over 2 hours to Lindale Mill in Rome, GA.
