Connor and Kelsey are truly the cutest human beings ever. Picture Pixar characters with the perfect animated eyes and features, THE perfect couple. They live in Atlanta, but are getting married in Carmel at my favorite venue, La Playa. Connor and Kelsey originally were going to have their engagement session in California when they came to look at the venue, but ultimately it worked out better for me to come adventure in Atlanta with them, and let me tell you – I had the best tour guides!
We started off their engagement session at their favorite restaurant, Bread and Butterfly. They have had so many dates there and it inspired them to have a more French inspired wedding day in Carmel. These two are all about the love and romance.
Connor & Kelsey toasted with champagne, that the owner of the restaurant was so kindly brought out for them. We then started exploring the city a bit. After capturing some breathtaking shots, we took a break in between looks and went to an adorable coffee shop that they go to nearly every day in their work from home schedule together!
They then changed into this exquisite look, looking simply stunning. We made our way to Piedmont Park and shot the rest of the photos overlooking the gorgeous Atlanta cityscape.
With the rain pouring down the day after we shot, and we were lucky enough to have the most beautiful day – it’s safe to say the stars aligned for our session.
I loved how they inspired me by taking locations and moments that have left a mark on their relationship and weaving them into a memory. It was such a blessing, getting to know them more, becoming friends with them and exploring a new place. Their photos are so magical – I can only imagine how spectacular their wedding will be.
Intimate City Engagement Session
