Engagement photos at Foxhall Resort — Douglasville, GA | Alesia and Cortez

June 27, 2023 0 Engagements, Foxhall

Well, what can be said about an amazing couple so much in love? Let’s get to know Alesia and Cortez a little closer, shall we?

What brought you two together?

According to Alesia, their story is a bit cliché. A night of fun and laughter with friends at a local night spot like Loca Luna would be the setting of this random encounter. They literally bumped into each other admittedly confessing they do not know how to salsa dance and chose this location on a whim. “I never imagined I would randomly bump into the love of my life that night and then embarrass myself attempting to dance.” But that was not the only thing they would later find out they had in common. They have been inseparable ever since.

Tell us, how did Cortez propose?

Well according to Alesia, it all started in October of 2016 about a year after they met. Alesia wanted to do something fun and different to celebrate a milestone. Since they are an outdoorsy type of couple, she decided to book a small cabin in Blairsville, Georgia. They ended up doing all his favorite things including camping, grilling and fishing. While there, they decided to go to Brasstown Bald which is the highest peak in Georgia. If you have never been in the fall, I highly recommend checking it out. While at the top, a park ranger excitedly told them that they picked the perfect weekend to visit. That night, there was to be a super moon and people from all over the country were coming into town to hike the peak that night to see it.

So did they go back?

They instantly decided that they had to witness this unique celestial experience for themselves. They headed back over to Brasstown Bald later that evening expecting to see droves of cars filled with people waiting to hike the peak and see the super moon. Well, when they arrived, they were the only people. The once lively national park was now completely deserted. It was just the two of them. Alesia admits she normally is completely afraid of the dark, but they had come so far and really wanted to see the super moon. They began their walk which quickly turned into a slight jog and eventually ended up sprinting up to the peak (the random noises were getting to them). As they caught their breaths and walked the stairs to the top, they were completely captivated by the night sky. The sky was clear and even with the super moon beaming you could see every constellation in the sky. Completely overwhelmed by God’s beauty, they fell on to their knees thanking God for crossing their paths. A few years later, they returned to that very same location for a quick winter getaway and found him down on one knee.

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?

In Alesia’s words: I am extremely excited about the wedding venue. I’m a pretty laid back individual, but I knew the venue would be one of the most important parts of bringing my vision into fruition. We are both adventurous and enjoy the outdoors, so I wanted a location that provided a rustic feel and matched our personalities. I toured maybe 10 venues before finding Foxhall Resort and falling head over heels in love. From the staff to the beautiful landscape—Foxhall is by far the most picturesque place near Atlanta. They have several lakes, open pastures, breathtaking overlooks and trees surrounding the venue. I’m looking forward to designing my wedding.

They are extremely passionate and it shows throughout the session. There were so many photo-worthy moments and they captured them all.

Nestled in the heart of Druid Hills, the Cator Woolford Gardens offers a rare glimpse into 1920s Atlanta.

The location chosen for their engagement session was Woodlands Garden just six miles from the city of Atlanta. A place we had never visited.

Ponce City Market is the “go to” location for locals and visitors alike to get a sense of what is Atlanta. Also it’s a great place to go have your engagement photos taken if you’re looking for an indoor place on a rainy day.

Although Ponce City Market is a busy location (located in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood along the Atlanta BeltLine, across from Historic Fourth Ward Park, and walking distance from Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland, and Midtown), if you know the area and its unique nooks and crannies well, it can yield a lot of creative images. As photographers, we need to quickly think on our feet for this to happen and for couples like Kristen and Seth to have an amazing experience. Enjoy our lovely couple’s engagement session at Ponce City Market!

Taking advantage of the unique murals along the way.

Intimate Micro Wedding — Roswell, GA | Florangel and Marino 

September 26, 2022 0 Weddings

A micro wedding…what is that?

According to BRIDES magazine, a micro wedding is an intimate affair, typically with no more than 50 guests. They still feature time-honored traditions that make a wedding but on a much smaller scale. Why would a couple decide to forego a larger traditional celebration with that of something at a smaller scale? Well that was an easy answer for both Flor and Marino. For them this was a second marriage for both and although they wanted to celebrate it with friends and family, they didn’t want the reason for their union to get lost in a more grand or elaborate production. They wanted a more personal and intimate afternoon of good food, great wine and lots and lots of laughter.

First up was deciding on a venue. That was a no brainer. They both immediately decided on their favorite Roswell restaurant, Foundation Social Eatery off of Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell. Then who would design their intimate reception? None other than Marjorie DiFiore of Atlanta Stylish Point. Along with The Flower Garden created the most beautiful space to celebrate Flor and Marino’s love with their most special of friends and family. Come see for yourself how this beautiful wedding came together.

Flor surprised Marino with a commissioned piece of art depicting themselves for their intimate micro wedding day. Little did Flor know Marino would shave his beard for the wedding. It’s a great story nonetheless.

If they couldn’t see each other, they were constantly near each other not letting go. It was so sweet to witness.

As the event was winding down, we took Flor and Marino a few feet away to take some creative portraits and take advantage of their love for each other.

Let’s have an adventure

Flor and Marino wanted to have a post wedding adventure session. You don’t have to tell us twice. We were excited to photograph in Cloudland Canyon in Rising Fawn, Georgia. It’s a beautiful national park up in the northwest corner of the state. It’s a bear to get there with so many steps and stairs, but the view was well worth it. These two were up for anything we wanted, to the point of diving in and enjoying each other in the water by the waterfall. Talk about a couple that are game to do anything for the photo. They did not disappoint.

Both Flor and Marino love riding their BMW motorcycles that they’ve driven cross-country several times and were preparing for their next cross-country ride for their honeymoon. Is adventure in their blood? I think so.
