Atlanta Engagement: Mikhaela + Andrey

Andre and Mikhaela met through mutual friends of her family and over time they became great friends who discovered they had a much more "special" relationship.  The problem was, she lived in Boston and he was here in Georgia.  As you may have guessed, after a few years of Andre pursuing and a lot of phone calls, he convinced her to move to Georgia so they could further their relationship and finally have the opportunity to experience a new chapter in their relationship. 

When she first got settled in, she recalls that they spent a great deal of time doing all the "normal" couple things–watching movies, being outdoors, going to the lake, park and beach but one particular night, things changed.  They had been exhausted from the day, and decided to lie down and watch the next episode of "House" on Netflix.  Mikhaela reminiscences that she could tell he was fidgety and nervous but she couldn’t quite figure out what was up.  A few minutes later, he opened up a little white box with a gorgeous, sparkly ring and the rest was history.

Andrey and Mikhaela, thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph such an amazing time in your life and for being willing trust my crazy ideas and possibly get locked in a historic cemetery, lol.  I am absolutely over the moon excited to photograph your wedding this September in Helen, I just know it will be epic.  Much love, Amber

This was one of my absolute favorite parts of the session.  The way he makes Mikhaela laugh so easily is just too cute.

Since it was a bit windy that day in Atlanta, the street between the two high rise buildings was a perfect buffer to provide just enough movement of her dress but not mess up Mikhaela's hair.

Mikhaela and Andre you two couldn't be any more lovely.

After leaving Atlantic Station, we decided to head over to get some city shots.  I absolutely love how these turned out.

Congrats again you two!  See you next month!
