Stephanie & Mike's Engagement Session on the Chattahoochee River

Atlanta + Coastal Georgia + The Southeast

let's be friends!

Prepare for a gorgeous engagement session!

Y’all, we live in a small world. When Stephanie first reached out to me about her wedding, I was thrilled! Partly because she’s adorable and super cool, but also because she and her fiancé Mike are getting married in my hometown of Peachtree City!

There are only a few venues in the Bubble (that’s what we like to call it, yo), but they’re getting married at Garrett’s family’s church and having their reception at one of my favorites spots, Flat Creek Country Club! I photographed a wedding there last year, and I’ve been dying to go back!

Not only that, but Garrett and Mike graduated together at the same high school!! Right?!

So basically, the world was just trying to make us friends!

I always love when I get to have engagement sessions with my couples because it gives me a chance to get to know them better. Not only that, my couple gets experience in front of my lens! When you’re having your portraits taken by a professional photographer for the first time, you’ll get nervous. That’s normal! But when my couples have already practiced at their engagement session, the wedding day is a breeze and they have some beautiful photos together. I call that a win-win!

Stephanie and Mike were naturals! For their engagement session, we met at Chochran Shoals, a trail that follows the Chattahoochee River. Right when Stephanie walked up, my heart was aflutter. She looked amazing! Seriously, I have the prettiest brides with the best fashion sense. I may even go out and find a dress like one of hers for my engagement photos! Mike looked dapper in his outfit, as well, and together they had all of the runners and bikers on the trails giving them the thumbs up and all the praise hands!

Just wait until you see this peek into their engagement session! Steph & Mike, I can’t wait to celebrate more with you…only this time on your wedding day! Congratulations again and again!
