I’m posting Maura and Max’s Piedmont Park engagement session today because we are less than a month away from their wedding! They are getting married the first weekend of March and I can’t wait to see was Fete and Figs have put together. I’m getting to a chance to return to the gorgeous Cathedral of Christ the King and experience a reception at the Biltmore Ballrooms for the first time. There’s nothing more fun than finding new swoony-worthy venues to share with my future brides.
One thing to consider with engagement sessions, especially in popular locations in cities as large as Atlanta, is how crowded they will be at the time of the photoshoot. Maura, Max, and I hit The Beltline and Piedmont Park early in the morning to try and negate this issue. Typically, mornings provide gorgeous light and clearer backgrounds. However, when the day arrived it was a mixture of hazy clouds and light downpours. Nevertheless, I think the photos ended up having a lovely texture that kept the focus on my couple instead of the skyline beyond them. Especially when the midtown skyline is such a showstopper already!
When planning engagement session locations, there are a few things to consider. First, your personality is definitely a key factor. Maura and Max are bright and colorful, just like the murals on the Beltline! Another thing to consider is if you want the iconic, like the main field at Piedmont Park, or something more personal, like a cozy nook by the lake often overlooked. (But if you’re asking me, the answer is always both.)
