What are the top three things to consider when choosing your Atlanta engagement session locations? Since many couples use their engagement photos to announce the most anticipated day of their lives, it’s important to find out. I’m here to offer up a few questions and help you and your partner find the perfect fit!
First things first, is there an Atlanta location that’s sentimental to you? Maybe it’s where you had your first date or where they dropped to one knee. Definitely take a moment to consider your milestone spaces. There’s nothing like returning to the scene to get all the feels flowing!
While this journal entry is all about Atlanta locations, feel free to daydream outside the perimeter. Destination engagement experiences overflow with magic and adventure.
Now that you’ve considered whether or not your sentimental spots are important to you, let’s move on to tip number two. How comfortable are you both public? When it comes to engagement sessions, PDA is encouraged. If that’s something that makes you or your partner queasy, consider having your engagement session documented on a weekday.
As a general rule, weekday sessions will mean fewer onlookers in comparison to a Saturday or Sunday session.
For a truly one-of-a-kind experience, and to ensure that you are the only two around, you can pay to reserve a spot at the gorgeous Atlanta History Center Swan House. If skylines are your thing, you can also rent the helipad at Ventana’s for an epic view.
When it comes to being photographed on private property, keep in mind that your wedding venue may offer a complimentary engagement session in your wedding collection. Weekday sessions are ideal, since many weekend dates are booked for weddings and other events.
Last but not least, is the imagery you love based in nature or surrounded by gorgeous architecture? Remember, my number one goal during your engagement session is to highlight your love. But I also want to make sure that the environment we surround ourselves with represents who you two are as a couple.
Where do you frequent on date nights? Look at the background of your phone, your favorite photos on social media, and the photographs and paintings you have around your home. This will give you a visual hint of the types of places that spark joy for you!
I hope this article helps to give you insight while deciding your Atlanta (or destination) engagement location. I can’t wait to hear what stirs your heart as we work to create magic together!
