let me tell you what happens when it’s raining when we have an engagement shoot- we reschedule it. almost 100% of the time. ALMOST. lindsay & bruno were not phased by a little light rain- not even the slightest! matt started the shoot under cover but, as predicted, the rain stopped shortly after they began and the moody, grey sky broke into a sunset that made the risk of wet hair and mosquito bites totally worth it! i really love their adventurous spirits and we’re excited to be shooting their wedding!
last sunday afternoon matt hopped on his bike and headed to laura & mahesh’s home for their engagement shoot. this may seem simple, but it was certainly a dream come true for matt! in case it isn’t blatantly obvious enough i’ll say it again: we LOVE our little corner of atlanta. we love the people, the small businesses, the community, the homes, the sidewalks- all of it. so whenever we get a chance to work with likeminded couples like laura & mahesh, it’s so exciting for us. the world feels smaller. our community feels closer. :) …and when we realized which home was their’s we couldn’t help but smile- it’s one of our very favorites. a beautiful 1920s duplex, renovated into a single home- so unique! we’ve always loved it and we’re so happy to now know the awesome couple who lives there. laura & mahesh are brilliant, fun and down to earth- what a treat to get to know our neighbors and do our job at the same time. can’t wait for the wedding…next weekend!
you learn a lot about someone when things don’t go the way they planned. you learn how adaptable they are, how optimistic they are- you learn about their priorities and their sense of adventure. this is really how we came to love allie & yuval. yes, we had coffee, chatted about their wedding, and left feeling great about working with them. but it was after one rain out, one game time location change and one threateningly rainy afternoon shoot that we saw their true colors. and they’re the best colors. :) anyone who can remain so light on their feet with happiness as these two, in the midst of their plans falling apart, is someone we are so excited to work with! allie & yuval, we are excited to be there for your wedding day, it’s going to be wonderful!
my favorite of their images, so peaceful and comfortable. not the bright sunny garden shoot they had planned but so perfect nevertheless:
