Downtown Atlanta Engagement Session

Adventures, engagement

Channelle & Troy | Atlanta, GA

Did someone say road trip?! Bret and I are always up for a good ride in the car together because it basically means one long karaoke night for us 😉  So when Channelle and Troy contacted us for an engagement session in Atlanta, of course we said, “HECK YES!” Channelle and Troy are getting married this May in downtown Evansville, Indiana but are planning the wedding from Atlanta (major props to you both!). After snuggling up for a virtual coffee date with these two, we immediately hit it off and spent the hour excitedly chatting. The idea was offered for us to meet them in Atlanta for their engagement session and we eagerly accepted!

 

This was our first Atlanta experience which was wonderful itself but add in this AMAZING couple and it was a time we won’t forget! Channelle and Troy are one of those couples that when you meet them, they just radiate ‘meant to be.’ Their love for each other is so apparently obvious that it pulls you in when you are with them and makes them an absolute joy to be around. We are so thankful to be able to capture this special time for them!

 

Our day together started in downtown Atlanta at Cafe Intermezzo which is actually where they had their first date…SWOON! It was so special for them to be able to relive the joy and magic of that first night together. They snuggled up with some coffee, giggled with each other and let us do our thing! Next, we headed to Piedmont Park which is the beautiful and historical park in Atlanta. This park is magical y’all and it just so happens to be the EXACT place where they met for the first time during one of the live outdoor concerts. It was so fun to be able to see them giggling and reminiscing that time with one another. Bret and I were able to explore this area with Channelle and Troy while capturing some truly gorgeous photos.

 

Channelle has an incredibly fun personality which makes sense that she LOVES color and vibrant things. She mentioned another part of town with a bridge that had a really cool and colorful mural on it which made Bret and I’s ears perk right up! We sped across town to make sure we got that last bit of golden hour with these two and this eclectic backdrop. It was so worth it because we were able to get some stunning pictures here!

 

After this amazing day together we also had the chance to grab dinner with Troy and Channelle, they introduced us to Thai food for the first time! We know we’re a little behind the times on this one but thanks goodness for this perfect couple bringing us up to speed. (We loved it!!) We could not have imagined a better dinner date, before we knew it several hours had passed and we spent the entire time talking and laughing!!  Atlanta was FULL of adventure and we are just so, so thankful for the experience. We cannot wait for Channelle and Troy’s downtown Evansville wedding in just a few short weeks – eeek! If the engagement session was this much fun…we can only imagine how spectacular the wedding will be! Congratulations again, you two!!
