Outdoor Atlanta Engagement Session

Kristin and Darin met through mutual friends but they really at a little Atlanta landmark called Johnny's Hideaway. It was one of their favorite spots to go to on a night out and it still is! Darin told Kristin that he was meeting friends at the bar on the rooftop of their place. Kristin headed up after and there Darin was holding two glasses of martinis with a photographer to capture the entire moment. They then celebrated by going to Doraku Sushi, the place they had their first date, and had their whole family there to surprise her. After dinner, they headed out to have a few more celebratory drinks at Johnny's Hideaway and all their closest friends were there to surprise them!

The engagement ring was a rose gold band with a solitaire 1.7 karat diamond that was hand-selected by Darin and made by Solomon Brothers. The engagement shoot attire was a flowy white dress for the garden photos and for the beltline pictures the attire was casual but with a pop of color. With the garden photos, they had to include the martinis that started it all and of course their pretty pup Maddox.

Kristin and Darin's advice is to get a good photographer who makes you feel comfortable, "Shelby was a dream come true for our engagement and wedding session! She was amazing at making us look (and feel) natural and engaging our Cavalier King Charles, Maddox!"From the photographer, “Kristin & Darin was such a dream! These two were all smiles and cuddles, and absolute perfection at their Atlanta engagement session. The playful energy they brought to this shoot inspired me so much.

Their sweet pup Maddox even joined in on their celebration and stole the show! We started at Cator Woolford Gardens in Atlanta, which is always a favorite of mine, and then made our way down the road to the Beltline. They share a love of martinis and the city, so we incorporated both in their session!”
