Ah, young love! Erica and Riley just got engaged over the Christmas holiday, and their wedding is in May! When Erica first contacted me, I knew we were a great fit. I had so much fun photographing their engagement session at Starr’s Mill. I had never been to this historic mill and didn’t even know it existed! However this spot was meaningful to Erica and Riley because they both grew up nearby and took photos here throughout their childhood, before they’d ever even met! What a cool coincidence! (I even recently found out they filmed the movie Sweet Home Alabama here as well!)

These two are a very playful, fun-loving couple, and we had such a blast at their session! I enjoyed giving them little cute prompts and actions to do in order to get the sweetest pictures of them. I love how happy and in love they are, and how naturally they photograph! I’m looking forward to traveling back to my hometown of Thomaston to photograph their wedding at the Barn at Harper Pines!
