This is a special engagement session. The groom is my boyfriend Daniel’s best friend! Jonathan and Daniel literally grew up together. I always have a blast when I get a chance to double date with Jonathan + Mairi and hear childhood stories about Daniel. This couple is definitely the “city” type, living smack dab in the middle of Midtown Atlanta. They quickly fell in love with all the incredible offerings of Midtown from the moment they moved into their sky-high condo. Like nearby Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. In fact, they’re members of the Gardens and attend several events throughout the year hosted there. And funny enough, the first time I ever met them was in Piedmont Park for an Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert! So picking a spot for their engagement session was a total no-brainer. Bonus points for a stunning spring morning and the Orchid Daze exhibit! (Orchids are Mairi’s favorite flower.)
I don’t think I’ve ever had a more colorful engagement session. I brought along my film camera and wish I’d shot more than one roll because film is MADE for these types of sessions. But getting to photograph the most stunningly unique engagement rings and pretend we were in a Jurassic Park movie at one point definitely made up for that. It’s an absolute understatement to say how excited I am to photograph Jonathan + Mairi’s backyard woodsy-wedding (complete with camping!) in October. If they can rock their engagement session like this, I can only imagine what the wedding will be like! Oh, and I promise to bring more film next time.
