Our Engagement Photography Style + Approach


Life is one big story of adventure. Whether you are trekking through mountains, traveling the world, getting married, or celebrating key moments in your life, it all comes down to one thing, adventure. We are Atlanta engagement photographers, but we also travel all over with no travel fees in the continental US for amazing weddings! We also travel for engagements! We believe that weddings are about two awesome people, love, and a commitment.

Since we are storytellers, we feel the best way to showcase photographs is with beautiful albums and amazing wall art pieces that can be experienced by everyone who visits your home and past down through generations. Of course social media is great, but it fails to tell a great story or provide a tangible way to truly enjoy the story with your family and friends for generations to come.

custom_grid_item_6_1455565077(pp_w1000_h667) We classify our engagement photography style and approach as documentary / editorial with a fashion flare. What exactly does that mean? You might have heard terms like photojournalistic or candid photography, which is essentially what we do. Basically, we are storytellers. We strive to capture all of the elements of your personalities and love to tell a complete story.We don’t just show up to some boring park and take pretty pictures. Those photos will not mean much other than the awesome looking people in them.

Instead, we work closely with our couples to put together the a real meaningful story based on things like what you like to do for fun, how you met, your hobbies, and just about anything else to create something truly amazing for you both. From there, we determine the location(s), time of day, year, ect to make it all come together to one epic experience!

When it comes to actually taking photos, we like to give some direction, but not necessarily pose you, in order to create natural candid looking photos that are flattering as if we were photographing you for a magazine. We spend a great deal of time focusing on creative portraits, since these are the ones our clients like to showcase in their albums and the wall art in their homes. Our approach to engagement sessions is exactly the same way as the portraits on your wedding day, so it’s a great way to get a feel for how things will work and to get comfortable being photographed. Plus, it gives us a chance to get to know each other on a deeper, more personal level, making things even more calm and smooth at your wedding.

We understand that our engagement photography style and approach is not the perfect fit for everyone. We want to ensure that we are a perfect match for your idea of your engagement session, so please feel free to take time to view our engagement portfolio and blog to get a better idea of our documentary fashion editorial approach. Of course we encourage you to meet us and to see what our clients have to say about why us.
