David and I went for a walk Saturday, and the photos from that walk inspired this blog. I am learning that fall can be pretty too.
I do not think that I could possibly forget meeting Tanya and Hugh for the first time. It was the beginning of this fall rainy season we’ve had, and before the Atlanta floods- it felt like it was raining for days. We met for coffee, talked about their plans, and about photography. My favorite part was at the end, when they said they kinda knew all along that they wanted to book us! That really is the best feeling…they had confidence knowing what they wanted in a photographer, and I was extremely encouraged that they chose us! So, we set a date right then for this engagement shoot.
We could not have gotten a more perfect day to take pictures! And, what a difference from that rainy day at Starbucks. It was wonderful to be outside in the sun, walking through tall grasses, and getting to know this absolutely fabulous couple. I love looking back over the images of that day because they did such a great job posing for pictures. But the ones we love are those shots in between the camera clicks. Those that are unexpected. Those are the moments that bring the memories of that warm fall afternoon rushing back to your mind, and make you smile. Enjoy!
Our first stop was Marietta Square, only to find out that Homecoming photos were taking place! But, Tanya and Hugh rocked it anyway, and we found some pretty fun spots to escape the crowds.
If you follow us on TWITTER at all, you might have seen all my tweets about how AMAZING of an afternoon we had! I absolutely love this city when I can drive a short distance outside of the hustle and bustle to land in a field that makes you feel like you are in North Georgia! This may have been my favorite part…
What an amazing day! We cannot wait to be with you on your wedding day! Congratulations you guys!!!
I am sitting here right now dreaming about this past weekend. The chill outside and the rainy morning weather have NOTHING on this steamy hot picture! I cannot wait to share the amazing images that I have been working on with you oh-so-soon! And, in the mean time, bask with me in the memory of warm sun rays on your face.
Praying for an Indian Summer…
Another sample shot on our twitter page HERE!
I will admit, that although I love summer and everything that encompasses that season, I am giving in to this amazing weather. We had a few moments all together this afternoon to romp and play out in the yard!
Now…if the mosquitos would all die I would be happy!
Some of you may be asking, “where have y’all been?” Our blog time has not been what we would like for it to be, and hopefully this will be the end of our dry spell. Fellow Atlanta friends know, it sure isn’t dry around here anymore!
Some fun news is that I have been working with the Governor of Georgia as his photographer, and one of the perks of the job is the ability to travel with him. A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of flying in a helicopter to Dalton, GA. On the way back to ATL I snapped a few shots of the city.
Although it is really overcast with low clouds, here is Buckhead:The rest are from our approach to the city and the state capitol building.
