Whitney & Donnie Are Engaged | Alpharetta, GA Engagement Photographer

On Sunday I had the chance to photograph a long-time dear friend of mine and her fiancé. Whitney is the kindest soul in the world, and Donnie reflects that perfectly. I’ve known both of them for years, as we grew up in middle school and high school together. They simply adore each other. From the minute our time together began until the very end, they were completely focused on each other and the love they shared. Now I’m thrilled to share a few of my favorite photos from our session with you.

A River Day

Sometimes you just need to take a day to enjoy yourself. On Friday, we did just that. I took the day off to celebrate Chip finishing step 2 of the boards (read: the 2nd hardest – next to step 1 – test he will ever take; one that consumes months in advance of constant studying, leaving room only for meals and the occasional puppy belly rub or trip to DQ for a Blizzard).

One thing we’ve wanted to do for a while is to get Sophie to the river. Typically days-off revolve around entertaining her. Honestly, sometimes I think it’s bizarre how much we love this little creature.

But since the in-laws are building a pool in the backyard currently, we want her to be fully ready for some swimming action when it’s finished. We know she loves the water from our beach trip last year, but it’s been a while!

Don’t worry… she loved it, as you can see:

And enjoyed the view with her daddy. Just a boy and his dog:

Sophie & Chip

Y’all, I’ve got the prettiest dog in the world. Isn’t she so stately? She was posing for the camera.

We couldn’t stay for long, or else we might have frozen in that water, but she had a blast. Shake it out, Sophie.

Now, she’s passed out on her bed and hasn’t moved a muscle since we got home. Weekends on “vacation” at the grandparents always wear her out. Not so good for the grandparents, but awesome for us. 🙂

At least we know she’ll be fully ready to dive in when the pool is finished later this week just in time for the 4th of July!

What’s your favorite thing to do on a day-off?
