I know what y’all are probably thinking, two blog posts in one week?! Syd, you are on a roll! Only kidding 🙂 But seriously, last weekend was simply the best because I had not one, but two INSANELY beautiful engagement sessions! This modern romantic Atlanta rooftop session has been in the works for months now, and I could not be happier with the results!
Since starting my business full time after graduation in May, I have been so blown away by God’s goodness. The overwhelming amount of support that I have received has been so humbling. So I started to brainstorm some ways that I could give back and truly share my appreciation. That’s when the idea of a styled engagement session to gift to a sweet couple popped into my head! I had ideas of what I thought it could look like, but I needed help. Three women in particular immediately came to mind. Megan of Megan Quintana Artistry, Cathy of Cathy Nugent Weddings, and Jackie of Blooming Hites! I have been so grateful for their friendships over these past few months, and I was way too excited when they dove right in! Seriously y’all, there was no hesitation in helping me with this. We started brainstorming, and before long, everything was set in stone! All we needed now was a couple!
I cannot thank everyone who entered in to win enough! It hurts my heart that we could only work with one couple, but I am so happy that this led us to Melanie and Logan. From the very beginning of this process, Melanie was so excited about their upcoming session. And I was just thrilled to be able to get to know them better! Melanie and Logan are high school sweet hearts. After going to KSU together, they both graduated and are working in Atlanta. Their love story is definitely a special one, and it is years in the making. This past November, Logan proposed to Melanie at a local vineyard. While he was telling me the proposal story my heart just melted. It is so evident how much these two adore one another, and they seriously could not have been a better couple to work with! They are both so gracious and fun and just made this entire process incredible.
To start off, Melanie and Logan wore their more casual outfit. “Casual” for these two looks pretty amazing if you ask me. A maxi and a sports coat hold such a special place in my heart, you can just never go wrong! I am so thankful that the cutest company, Tutu Moi, graciously donated three of their amazing skirts for us to use as well! The black tulle skirts could not have been a more perfect fit for our modern black and white rooftop. Logan’s light grey suit from The Modern Gent tied this whole look together, and needless to say, I am obsessed with how it turned out! From the sleek and simple roof top, the Atlanta skyline, a stunning bouquet, sweet details and an ever more beautiful couple, this session will forever hold such a special place in my heart! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart to every single person who made this dream a reality!
To sum it all up, Melanie and Logan, I absolutely adore y’all! Now I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves 🙂
