In early September I got to visit Sweetwater Creek State Park for the first time for Laury + Nicholas’ engagement photos. It’s so beautiful there! It’s a huge state park west of Atlanta, which also happened to be where many scenes from The Hunger Games (Mockingjay) was filmed! I knew it looked familiar, so I looked it up, haha 🙂 Unfortunately, the park had the ruins blocked off, so we couldn’t shoot there, but we got as close as we could. I had such a blast walking around and getting to know Laury + Nicholas better! Here’s a little bit about their love story….hey knew of each other in highschool, since they went to the same church, but never really connected until later on in life when they ran in to each other again. Nicholas knew a good thing when he saw it and wasted no time in getting her number – gotta love a man who springs into action to get his girl! They fell in love and one day, totally out of the blue, when Laury was getting home for work and getting out of her car, there was Nicholas with a ring and proposal to be his wife – talk about a surprise! Who knows what Laury was pondering on her drive home from work that day, but I doubt it was “maybe I’m about to be proposed to when I get out of my car…” Haha!
Laury + Nicholas, thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special time in your life – I absolutely can’t wait for the wedding day!
