When Stephanie told me the story of how she and Joe met, I had to laugh. We were about halfway through their engagement shoot at McDaniel Farm Park, and I was enjoying listening to their stories and watching them interact with one another. I had no problem picturing what Stephanie described: after spending the evening trying to catch Joe's eye, she finally walked right up to him and let him know that she had been attempting to get his attention all evening.
Although Stephanie and Joe live in Cincinnati, they wanted their engagement pictures here in Atlanta since this is the town where they met. Both went to business school at Emory, and we went back and forth about a good location that would reflect their personality and the town where they met.
When I first met them in the parking lot, Stephanie promptly informed me that they were not very photogenic. Five minutes into the shoot and she and Joe were all smiles. They were genuinely a fun couple to be around, and their chemistry was evident as they walked, laughed, and flirted during their session. I hardly gave any direction--they made my job easy--I just had to follow them around and capture their natural interaction with one another! We got some amazing pictures, and they will be fun memories for them to look back on one day. In June, Stephanie and Joe will marry in New York. I wish them the very best as they begin this next chapter in their lives. May your marriage be filled with blessings and laughter! I am grateful I was able to capture some sweet memories for you!
