Bride on the steps of the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center

Katie’s Bridal Session at the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, GA was the perfect way to end 2020. We met on what was one of the nicest December days I’ve ever experienced – with temperatures in the high sixties, it was incredibly warm & pleasant, even for a city that has […]



I love that Charity and Will decided to turn a long weekend trip to Atlanta into the perfect occasion to take engagement photos! And St Cecilia in Buckhead was the perfect location for this adorable duo to enjoy a few drinks at the gorgeous bar and relax together in a natural setting while I captured the laughs and sweet whispers in between!

I love engagement sessions like this that really feel like a real date — that the couple just happens to have cute photos of afterwards! In addition to the beautiful bar, I really enjoyed utilizing the gorgeous patio, and we even got in a few sweet photos along Peachtree! Aren’t destination engagement sessions fun?!! Scroll to see a few of my favorite photos from the day!

Isn’t the bar at St Cecilia stunning?!! The marble, those wood floors and that natural light?!! Be still my heart 🙂

Charity, what is it about Will that you love the most? – “Will’s passion and intensity keeps me forever intrigued by him. He has an incredibly generous heart and is beautifully committed to the people he loves. His complicated mind goes a million different ways that I love to chase, though I never quite catch it.  Will is also highly empathetic and self-aware. His honesty and forthcoming expressiveness leaves me never to wonder what is on his heart and mind. He loves fiercely and I love that. He makes me feel the perfect balance of cherished and taken care of coupled with challenged and counter-balanced. He’s my perfect partner.”

And for Will, what are a few things you love about Charity? – “She has a big heart and cares deeply about people. You can take Charity anywhere and she’ll have a blast: out to my ranch, to a 5-star hotel/dinner, to a football game, or to a dive bar. And she’s always happy. I’m the luckiest guy to have landed such a classy woman.”

After a few around St Cecilia, we finished our time with a stroll along Peachtree Street!

Charity & Will – Thank you so much for the privilege of capturing this sweet time in your lives!
