Mirela & Justin’s Engagement Session | Folly Field Beach Hilton Head Island, SC | Atlanta Destination Wedding Photographer

Engagement

The beach is definitely one of the things I miss about living in Florida, at least even in Orlando it was only an hour and a half (or so) to get to Clearwater Beach or Cocoa Beach, but here in Atlanta it’s about double that to either head South to Panama City Beach or East to Hilton Head Island, Savannah, and Tybee Island! Justin’s parents live in Hilton Head Island now, so we planned to make the drive over to the beach one evening and capture some awesome images!

After hanging out around the subdivision, Mirela changed clothes and we headed over to Follyfield Beach at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It’s kind of funny to think that I technically did this engagement shoot in another state, but HHI is right at the border with Georgia =P.

After taking some amazing photos along the beach, I brought out the lights a bit to showcase the driftwood that we found along the water.

We also started playing in the beach grass both with and without flash for a slightly different look.

We tried to write the wedding date in the sad, but the tide had other plans for us… =)

Thank you Mirela and Justin for a great time in Hilton Head Island! Also, a huge thank you to Justin’s Mom and Dad for cooking an awesome dinner for the three of us and having a nice meal before I headed back to Atlanta. Luckily Mirela and Justin could spend the night there and enjoy a relaxing weekend on the beach! I should also note that I have to give a huge thank you to our amazing bride Leslie for referring Mirela to us, I’m sure we’ll be seeing Mirela and Justin at Leslie’s wedding which is right around the corner!

Krupa & Jesal | Roosevelt Island + SoHo + Brooklyn Indian Engagement Session
As their wedding week starts this week, it's high time to post Krupa and Jesal's New York City engagement session which we shot over the Summer around the city! From their apartment in Midtown West we headed all over the city, starting at Roosevelt Island on the East side before heading down to SoHo and finally over the bridge to DUMBO in Brooklyn. This Roosevelt Island, SoHo, and Brooklyn Indian engagement session all over New York City is one not to be missed! Summer in the City, it's hot, it's crowded, and on a weekend afternoon? Double that! I suggested we sneak over to Roosevelt Island from their apartment on 57th, since it was ...

Today we have a super fun engagement session from down in Atlanta from a couple weeks ago hitting the blog! If any of the Atlanta-based readers are seeing this you might remember that crazy 3 week period where you guys were getting 100% rain every. single. day. for about 3 weeks! Craziness! With some rescheduling due to the rain, I didn't want to fly down from New York and it end up being a 100% rain day, we finally found a weekend that it was only drizzling for most of the day! I'll take that over pouring rain any day! I just want to add that while I was watching the Weather Channel forecasts for Atlanta, it was gorgeous 70 degree Fall weath ...
