Be sure to CLICK HERE to go back a few posts and read our Wedding Photography Wrap-Up for 2011 to see all of our beautiful brides and dashing grooms!

Ok, so in addition to wrapping up the wedding blog posts into one mega-post, I wanted to post a few of the other sessions that we had throughout the year… 13 engagement sessions in 2011! This doesn’t even count the portrait sessions that we’ve shot throughout the year, so maybe their will be a THIRD year-end wrap-up post in our future =). Now, sit back, get your scrolling finger warmed up, and enjoy our engagement sessions from 2011!

The year started off on a cold note doing our first session of 2011 with H & E, whom we are blogging about their wedding on Monday! This session took place in March in Piedmont Park, which you will notice is a recurring theme in a lot of our shoots =)

Next up is Rebekah and Lee! Who unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to photograph their actual wedding because we were booked that date already, but we did an amazing urban themed photoshoot around Downtown Atlanta! This was maybe a turning point in the year for me because Rebekah and Lee just totally put their trust in me and were up for any random ideas I had, the results speak for themselves =)

…then back to the park! But not Piedmont Park this time, for Amir and Nasrine we headed over to Centennial Olympic Park! Back to back engagement sessions that I could WALK TO, now that’s what I’m talking about! I need to do more weddings in Downtown Atlanta, 200 Peachtree anyone???

We went on a break during the Summer months where it seemed like all we did was shoot weddings! Definitely not complaining, I love weddings =) As Fall came though it seemed to be engagement season again and I shot our close friends Jess and John at Oakhurst Park!

Continuing the theme of trying to find new parks besides Piedmont Park, I convinced Sophear and Jake to head to Freedom Park near Little Five Points to do their engagement session =)

Ok, just for good measure we headed back to Piedmont Park with Michelle and Blake! I really do love Piedmont Park, it’s probably one of the reasons that I really fell in love with the city of Atlanta in general! The fact that we had one of the CRAZIEST sunsets of the year didn’t hurt either, just gorgeous colors!

Last but certainly not least, our final engagement session was with the awesome Brittany and Jarrett! Thanks for trying out my crazy ideas, I just wish we could have spent MORE time together! I guess it will have to wait a few months for the wedding =)

Thanks for taking yet another trip down Memory Lane with me and checking out some more of our photography! I had such an amazing time at each photo session whether it’s an engagement session or a full-on wedding. I really love all of our clients sooooo much! Here’s to a great 2012!!
