A Baseball Themed Engagement Shoot | Turner Field, Atlanta

  • Lance + Colleen | Engaged

….I could hear her excitement through her email! Colleen wrote to me in ALL CAPS and with a bazillion exclamation marks! She was ENGAGED!!! It was finally her turn! After years of following the blog, she was the one inquiring with a ring on her finger and she was SO EXCITED! The excitement continued as she booked and we started thinking about her engagement session! She jokingly mentioned that Lance LOVED the Braves and how cool would it be to shoot their engagement session on Turner Field?! ย (Lance… you’re a lucky man!!)

  • John + Lisa

There are so many similarities between me and Lisa. The more time I spent around her, the more I became aware of them. For example, she’s known in her family for being the one that has just a little bit of “clumsy” in her! That’s totally me!! I think there was one summer where I literally had 6 bike accidents in a row!! I learned this about Lisa when she almost took a tumble during the first look! While some brides would let that tarnish the moment… it made their moment even MORE amazing!! They’ll never forgot that!!! The thing about Lisa is that she’s embraces that aspect about herself and you just have to love it!! She is who she is!! She’s smart, joyful and so full of life! There is never a dull moment around this girl and I adore her for that. John loves this about her too! These two crack each other up constantly!

  • Daniel + Anna | Married

thinking about what I wanted to write about in this post for a few days now. It’s hard to put into a few words how awesome this couple is and how I have come to know Anna over the years!! Anna attended one of our workshops several years ago when she was first starting her business. She was so talented and yet she had no idea how AMAZING she really was. :) I specifically remember her asking me before dinner the night of the workshop, “Katelyn, be honest… do you really think that I can do this?! Full time?!”. After asking a few questions about finances and her goals…. it was a no-brainer. She was more than ready to take this business on full time and so that’s what she did!
