Kara + Nick | Piedmont Park Engagement Session

Thursday, December 4, 2014


The day before I met with Kara + Nick I heard on the radio that the Ferguson trial was about to go down and there would be picketers in a park in Atlanta.  I was a little freaked out!  I immediately called Kara with my concern.  I later realized the radio DJ was talking about Woodruff park and not Piedmont.  The day of there session, it looked like t-total poo outside.  It was just dreary and yuck.  I was ready to cancel and reschedule.  We ended up meeting at the park and I'm so glad we did!  It turned out to be a gorgeous evening in Atlanta with these two!



Kara met Nick at Georgia Southern University and were good friends for years. After Nick transferred to GA Tech he asked her to go to formal with him. They started dating shortly after. Kara knew he was the one when he lied about coming to her 21st birthday party. He said he couldn't come because of a prior engagement.  She was sad he couldn't make it but understood.  She went out for dinner with some friends, and looked up and he was standing there.  :)




After Kara's birthday they would travel to see each other every other weekend.  After over 4 years of long distance and driving back and forth to see each other, Kara moved to Atlanta!  









In April Kara had Spring Break.  (Perks of being a teacher!)  Her + Nick made plans to go to New York City to visit their friends.  New York is such a magical place to Kara.  They saw the Broadway show Pippin, walked around Times Square, and went to some cool bars and restaurants.  On that Thursday of their trip, while their friends were at work, Nick said he wanted to walk around Central Park.  When they got to Central Park, Kara suggested they get pretzels. This wasn't a part of Nick's plan!  








He then had Kara pick out a bridge on their map and they walked to it. Once they got to Bow Bridge they watched the people rowing their boats and the swans. After a few minutes Nick asked Kara if she wanted to be with him for the rest of her life. I said, "Of course!" Then he got down on one knee and proposed.





















Kara + Nick I can't wait to photograph your beautiful wedding day at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center!

Happy Thursday y'all!
Love.

Kelsie + Eugene | Cotton Field Engagement

Tuesday, November 25, 2014













Last weekend I got to spend the evening with Trey's cousin, Kelsie, and her fiancĂ©, Eugene, photographing their engagement session at Hard Labor Creek State Park + the cotton fields of Bostwick, Georgia.  We are all so very excited for them and can't wait to see these two get married next fall 2015!  Until then, I get to share their love story and the beautiful images we captured that day. . .<3.


Eugene and Kelsie started talking on June 6, 2013. Her best friend Taylor was dating Eugene’s best friend at the time, (they are now married) and she gave Eugene Kelsie's phone number.  From their first phone conversation their connection was instant!  They began talking everyday.  Eugene was everything Kelsie wanted and had ever hoped for in a man and she knew he was the one.  







Eugene lives in Eastman, GA, and Kelsie lives in West Point, GA, which didn’t bother either of them because they liked each other so much. Even though they hadn’t met each other yet, they both knew what was started between them was a good thing. 














Eight days after starting their phone relationship, Kelsie + Eugene finally got to meet in person.  As she walked down the steps of her house she could see Eugene pulling into the driveway. They met at the door, he was holding a bouquet of flowers. <3.










Their first date involved dinner and a movie.  They were so comfortable with each other and he treated her like I she had never been treated before.  He still wasn’t officially her boyfriend though and when the weekend was over, he went home and they made plans to see each other again.  She asked him on June 23 to officially be her boyfriend and of course he said yes.











During their ten month anniversary of being boyfriend and girlfriend, Kelsie + Eugene were took a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee with their good friends.  Kelsie was hoping he would ask her to marry him, but when he didn’t do it the first day, she figured this wasn’t the right weekend.  



On the second day of their vacation they decided to go on the sky lift up the mountain.  While on top of the mountain, 1600 feet up, Eugene asked Kelsie to pose for some photographs.  Before she knew it he was on his knee, holding her hand and asking her to marry him! 




I can't wait to photograph your wedding at Del'avant in October 2015!
Love.
H.
