Katie & Ryan's Gorgeous Waterfall & Mountain Engagement Session in Clayton, GA
ENGAGEMENT | 7.4.15
I’ll admit that the last time the words hiking and engagement appeared in my vocabulary was the day I asked my wife to marry me. That hike lasted almost 2 hours! Naturally, that was the first question I asked Katie when she mentioned a “hike” for her engagement photos with Ryan. I was relieved when she said “10 minutes.” As is with many summer sessions, weather almost stopped us from shooting. But we rolled the dice and I made the trek to the beautiful Clayton, GA.
Katie and Ryan’s love for adventure was evident from the beginning. For starters, GPS would have done no good on LONNNNGGGG gravel road winding through the hills of north Georgia. But once we arrived at the waterfall, I knew it was exactly where we needed to be. I immediately knew that Katie and Ryan were “at home” - the comfort zone. Waterfalls are kind of their thing. Just so happens that they also make for awesome photos.
Chemistry plays a major role in couple’s portraits. The looks. The glances. How her eyes light up when he laughs. How he gently holds her hand as they talk memories. It’s the little things really. But that’s exactly how relationships work. It’s a string of pearls that come together to make something beautiful.
En route to the final destination for our photos, the happy couple explained a little about the venue. “You’re gonna love it.” Probably the understatement of my career. I had to pick my jaw from the gravel lot when we arrived at Chattooga Belle Farm, just inside the South Carolina border. The weather, the hills, the vinyard, the sun - everything was PERFECT! I’ll let you use your imagination from there. No doubt Katie and Ryan’s engagement session was one they will never forget. Their wedding this December will also be full of unforgettable moments.
