Ponce City Market Engagement Session

This is C & J.

I’ve recently spent a lot of time at Ponce City Market – photographing weddings (Chelsea and Walt) – headshots… and about 78 other engagement sessions. (Like this one.) And the thing is this – THEY’RE ALL AWESOME. Sure there’s always the very high chance that you’re going to get kicked out (especially now – because you know – we photographers RUIN EVERYTHING) – but Ponce City Market really isn’t like any other development in town. (And I’m not just saying that to kiss up to them because we all know they don’t care and yeah yeah yeah.) There’s just a lot to work with AND it also connects to the Atlanta Beltline – so you can stroll along that and get more shots as well.

But really – the trick is to know what shot you’re trying to make, work fast, and then get the f*ck out of there. Well – I haven’t had any real problems but mostly because I’m really damn fast (at photography okay. Not like, everything. Okay?… nevermind.)

See. Engagement sessions at Ponce City Market right now – are still ridiculously awesome.

Every year is different in this business – and this year (really this Fall) I’ve had more engagement sessions than the last three years combined. SO. Here’s the thing with “engagement sessions” – they don’t have to be that. They don’t have to be super cheesy we’re in love generic photos. Actually – I dare say that most engagement sessions aren’t that at all. An engagement session is really just a regular portrait session – except adult couples don’t get professional portraits so it might seem a little weird/strange/different. And you’re right. It IS.

But it’s always an easy way to get good photos of the two of you – not in wedding clothes. (By good photos I mean professional photos not taken with a cell phone camera.)

Right. So. Engagement Sessions at Ponce City Market. Where was I?

Oh yeah. Something I’ve really, really, really been enjoying lately is COLOR. You may have noticed it from the photos I’ve been posting lately – it’s a literal color explosion. Bright Bright Bright colors! Everywhere! At least whenever I can you know.

So hey. I’m an Atlanta Wedding Photographer and one of the things that I’m supposed to know – is where the best locations are for engagement sessions. And people come to me for engagement sessions – I ask them what kind of session do they want. Basically – do you want something in the city, or in a park, or further out and wild nature? or river? Or mountain? Or OR OR Or in your home and then other places? Yeah. All that. And then I go and just MAKE AMAZING. Right?

No matter the location. Sometimes I have a little bit of say – and sometimes I don’t have any – but I’m ALWAYS supposed to bring the Awesome. It’s kind of my job.

Red Top Mountain Engagement Session

This is H & J and they wanted something a little different for their engagement session – and you KNOW that I’m generally sometimes almost always usually forever interested in making some new photos. The tricky part with engagement sessions is that you want them to be YOU. I know that’s a simple sentence and it seems like DUH. But if you look around – and I’m sure you have – you’ll find a lot of people… trying a little too hard. Too hard as in what the fuck is this/that?! Who ARE THOSE PEOPLE? Oh you know what I’m talking about.

But how do you show your personalities during your engagement session and avoid being inauthentic or fake or not you guys? I don’t know. I don’t have any good advice. That’s not really why you’re here. You’re here for the photos and photos and well alright – some advice. Okay. Basically – just show what you’re interested in. Your hobbies or your favorite things your likes – basically WHAT YOU DO when you’re not being in front of everyone else. Okay maybe not that – but the things you love. Like really LOVE. Because your engagement session is a portrait session of you and your partner (I’m going to assume you love them) – and you should do what you can to incorporate other things you love. Things that you both love. Whatever that might be. Seriously – because I’m not judging.

Your engagement session documents your love right? RIGHT FUCKERS THAT’S WHAT IT DOES. Now look at some photos.

Red Top Mountain State Park Engagement Session

Alright maybe I was a little harsh earlier. Or strangely aggressive. I mean – we’re talking about engagement sessions right? And weddings and fancy things like flowers and dresses or simply – love. Here’s the thing – your engagement session can be whatever you want it to be. You just have to be the one to make it happen. I’m not saying that your photographer can’t or won’t help you… ah nevermind – I was about to go on and on about you being you and #LiveAuthentic and #HashtagSomethingCool but whatever.

The point is that your engagement session doesn’t have to be an ‘ENGAGEMENT SESSION!’ – it doesn’t necessarily have to be cheesy or uncool or generic or something unrelated to you and who you both are and what you both mean to each other. It’s about YOU TWO PEOPLE. So show that. Really show that. Do you like to drink? GET DRINKING. Do you like to watch TV? Incorporate that. Seriously – I once had a couple start their engagement session in their living room, in PJs, reading a newspaper and drinking coffee – like it was a regular Saturday morning because THEY LOVE DOING THAT. See how easy it is? What do the two of you love to do together – and maybe do THAT for your engagement session.

Well – um – maybe not THAT – but you know what I mean. Do you? Nevermind it’s all good.
