For these uber Atlanta Falcons fans, having their engagement session around the nesting place of the beloved team was non-negotiable. From our first consultation, they made sure I knew what big fans they were. So we put some thought into, and these photos are the fruits of our efforts.
Amicalola Falls Engagement | Sean and Ali met me in the North Georgia mountains for their engagement portraits on a crisp fall afternoon. They both like the outdoors so this location was a no-brainer for their engagement photos. She wore jeans and a burgundy sweater and jeans. After their initial nervousness, the young couple got comfortable and in front of the camera and the result speaks loudly.
They met in passing at work a few years earlier, and after inquiring of a mutual friend, Sean began his pursuit. He made sure he was ‘invited’ on a camping trip with Ali and other co-workers. His plan worked, she fell for it. They spent much of the trip together and has been inseparable since then. Later this fall the will say they’re I do’s in front of family and friends and we will be there to document the beginning of the new chapter of their lives. Congratulations and thanks for choosing us at Jaxon Photography. Here are some of our favorite pictures from their engagement session at Amicalola Falls State Park in the North Georgia mountains.
Kara and Corey | Atlanta Woodruff Park Engagement
Kara and Corey’s sister worked at the same place and quickly became good friends. An invitation to her friend’s house for his surprise birthday party was how our couple first met. Fast forward a few more months, numerous visits to her friends home and many stolen glances at Corey. He decided to step up to take the risk of rejection via a Myspace message. That risk paid off, and today he is finalizing his wedding plans to the woman of his dreams.
Ten years and a housewarming proposal
Ponce City Market Engagement Session | Natasha and Yolanda
We met Jenn and Chris on a warm summer evening at the Old Fourth Ward Park in northeast Atlanta for their engagement photography portrait session.
Little blue box and a knee
For the entrepreneur and the software engineer, it took a minute for the sparks to start flying. But with patience and an assist from friends at church, a connection was finally made. Chris’ proposal was all about Jenn he wanted it as intimate as possible. Jenn had her first gathering of the year with Beauty in Me, her non-profit organization. After which, they gathered at her mother’s house. In a private room away from everyone and the excitement of the day, Chris praised Jenn on how well she had conducted the meeting. The affirming words and expressions from his heart were a little shocking and a bit overwhelming to Jenn. She felt something was different at this moment.
Before she could comprehend the sequence of events Chris was on one knee; with a blue box, he gracefully opened it as requested her hand in marriage. Surprised, she vocalized many of her thoughts! “Oh my God Chris,” “Aww you’re so sweet,” “look at you”! Of course, she said yes! Her last words were, “I have to go get my nails done now”!
Red Dress at Centennial Olympic Park
Today her nails were done, and the author was ready to cozy up to Chris as we captured some romantic images. We wrapped up our session around the lake at Old Fourth Ward Park and headed to Centennial Olympic Park. For this part of their portrait session, our beautiful couple stepped it up a couple of notches. She looked resplendent in a floor-length sleeveless red dress, and Chris was dashing in a gray suit, with opened collar black shirt. We are so looking forward to capturing their wedding day story this spring. Thanks for choosing Jaxon Photography to be part of your wedding day.
