Summerour Studio Engagement Photos by Laura Watson Photography

Atlanta + Coastal Georgia + The Southeast

let's be friends!

I love exploring new locations for sessions in Atlanta, but Shelby and Russell made me smile when they requested Summerour Studio for their engagement photos. After capturing a wedding day at Summerour Studio last year, I knew the location well and fell in love with it. The venue features a rustic Italian brick courtyard. With hanging ivy everywhere, it’s picturesque and lovely!

While the venue wasn’t new to me, I’ll always remember this session as a first. This is my first session captured entirely on film with zero digital backups. I’ve wanted to capture a session like this for some time, but I needed to find the right couple. Thankfully, Shelby and Russ embraced this idea fully!  Through their excitement at trying something new, I felt trusted and valued. Talk about a dream couple. They reaffirmed that, not only are they wonderful humans, they are a dream couple in my life in every way!

We loved walking around Summerour Studio at sunset, pausing to capture their love story, and sharing many laughs. Russ and Shelby are sweethearts, and I can’t wait for their wedding day next February at Brick and Ivey!
