Here in Georgia you never know what type of weather you’ll get. One day it’s beautiful and sunny with a high of 80 degrees and the next day it’s the snowpocalypse. The week of Sydney and Jeremy’s engagement session was no different. The day before our downtown session it was a beautiful, sunny, and warm day. I was so excited that we were going to have the perfect weather for taking pictures! I think I jinxed it by saying how nice it was because the very next day it was beautiful, but freezing.
Normally when it’s cold outside you get a nice warm fire going, drink hot chocolate, and snuggle on the couch, right? Not me! I like doing engagement sessions :). Sydney and Jeremy were such troopers and even though they were literally shivering, they rocked their session. Let me tell you a little bit about these two awesome people. They met in 2011 while working for the same agency. They became friends first and after hanging out for a little while they began dating in 2014.
In the early part of 2017, Sydney planned a trip for Jeremy’s birthday. She chose Charleston, South Carolina because of the beautiful historic homes and the relaxing atmosphere. While touring a plantation that had a picturesque garden with multiple bridges, Jeremy asked Sydney which bridge she liked the most. Sydney pointed to the one she loved and they began to walk towards the bridge in order to cross it. While standing on the bridge Jeremy got down on one knee, pulled out a ring, and said, “You thought this trip was about me, but really it was about us.” It was then that he asked Sydney to marry him.
I’ve known these two for a long time now and I’m excited that God has brought them together. Their sarcastic humor and their kind hearts are what makes being in love the best part about life. I love that I’ve gotten to know them over the years, become friends with them, and now I get to photograph their wedding in May. It’s such an honor to be able to document their love story. I’d love to share some of my favorite pictures from their downtown Atlanta engagement session. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 🙂
