Piedmont Park Engagement Session | Kali & Tommie
Little girls often dream of being swept off of their feet by a romantic marriage proposal. Well, Tommie made that dream come through for Kali. They were introduced one evening by a mutual friend at Luckie Food Lounge in Atlanta. Neither of them wanted that first night to end. They talked well into the night after everyone else had left, marveling at their shared interests and principals.
Tommie first asked Kali to marry him when they celebrated New Year’s in 2009. However, a romantic a heart, he decided that for the formal engagement he would sweep his bride-to-be off of her feet. The day began with Kali receiving two letters. In the first letter, Tommie professed his love for his fiancée and described the impact she had on his life. The second letter instructed Kali to be at a certain place at a certain time wearing her favorite dress. Kali was in for a night full of surprises. She was picked up in an executive car and driven into downtown Atlanta where she was escorted to their table at the revolving Sun Dial restaurant on the 72nd floor of the Westin Hotel the second tallest all-hotel skyscraper in the western hemisphere. She and Tommie enjoyed a wonderfully romantic dinner enhanced by a view of the city and a beautiful sunset. (Did Tommie arrange for that as well?). After dinner, Tommie took Kali up to the observatory level of the building, smoothly got down on one knee and presented Kali with her custom designed engagement ring. While the waiter Tommie recruited captured the moment in pictures and the visitors at the observatory applauded Kali finally and excitedly said ‘Yes’.
Kali and Tommie are a ton of fun to be around, their wedding will not be boring. I am so looking forward to it in the spring. We captured these images at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.
