I am so happy to share Shelby and George’s Atlanta Beltline engagement session with y’all! Shelby and I actually first met during recruitment week at Auburn our freshman year. Since we have such similar last names, we were placed in the same Pi Chi group. We remained friends all throughout college, and it was just the sweetest feeling when Shelby reached out to me after she and George got engaged! These two have such a unique story, and it all started about three years ago.
“George and I met through a study abroad program! We originally met during the preparation classes the semester before and then got to know each other throughout the month we spent backpacking around Europe! We didn’t start dating until after we got back, but were definitely fond of each other during the trip. Our first kiss was on top of a mountain overlooking Florence- it was perfect!!”
Seriously, y’all, how many people can say that their first kiss was that romantic?! Both Shelby and George were born and raised in the Atlanta area and have been back in the area this past year. Shelby lives right on the Beltline, so they definitely take advantage of everything it has to offer! Whether it’s walking to Ponce City Market, Krog Street Market, or exploring new restaurants, there’s never a shortage of plans! A little over a month ago, George proposed at Piedmont Park. They spent the afternoon at a North Georgia vineyard (trying to throw Shelby off) and actually ended up getting caught in hours of traffic on the way back to Atlanta. Once they finally arrived at the park, George had everything set up and ready to go. Along with their family and friends standing by to celebrate!
I had the absolute BEST time with these two exploring the Beltline and Ponce City Market! There’s so many gorgeous areas everywhere you look, and Shelby and George made everything way too easy! We even got to stop at King of Pops to end their session 🙂
Enjoy some of my absolute favorites from their session, below! Shelby and Bruce, I simply adore y’all and cannot WAIT until your wedding in October!!
