Engagement Sessions

A Classic & Sophisticated Engagement Session in Atlanta, GA

Kimberly and Gregory’s love story is like a page from a romantic comedy script! In 2016, they were strategically paired together in a mutual friend’s wedding party. At first, they were both a little leery of the idea of being “hooked up,” as friends playing Cupid could present some challenges. However, Kimberly and Gregory connected at the rehearsal brunch and felt as though they had been friends for a long time. Since July 2016, the couple endured a long-distance relationship, supported each other during some tough life events, and celebrated big wins.

Engagement story

Greg typically surprises me for my birthday with a getaway, but 2020 was not an ordinary year. It was also a bittersweet celebration as my beloved Grandma Pauline’s funeral was the day before my birthday. However, Greg made it special with a romantic dinner and gifts throughout the day. The next morning, he asked me if I was ready to receive my birthday present. It was a note that read, “You chose poorly, you get nothing.” After I finished laughing hysterically, he dropped to one knee, presented a stunningly beautiful ring, and asked me to marry him. I said in great surprise (and tears), “Are you serious? Absolutely!” It was another unforgettable and special birthday.

Were there any memorable moments during the shoot?

From the fountain to the gardens, and the archways and columns, the setting is stunning with so many picturesque areas on the grounds. In addition to recommending this fantastic backdrop for our engagement shoot, our photographer, JoAnn from Wooten Photography, made us feel so relaxed with her lively approach.
