Hi, I'm sarah.


Emma and Brendan’s Athens engagement session was incredibly special. For starters, these two are middle school sweethearts! I photography high school and college sweethearts all the time, but middle school is so sweet and unique. Emma and Brendan both went to UGA, so we knew we wanted part of their session to be on North Campus. North Campus is one of my favorite spots in Athens to shoot engagement photos. It’s so classic and the architecture is so fun. Lake Herrick, by the intermural fields, was a fun spot to visit too! I love how the lake makes it look like we had to drive to elsewhere, but it’s right on campus! The forecast was predicting rain for their sunset session, so we pivoted and did a morning session to avoid the rain. Having the ability to pivot between morning and evening sessions makes such a difference. I love doing engagement sessions at two different locations. North Campus and Lake Herrick are so different, but I love how they go together so well. The morning light on North Campus was gorgeous. It was so much fun shooting this Athens engagement session with you both. I cannot wait for your October wedding!
