Cliff & Sedrick // Rainy Lifestyle Engagement Portraits in Atlanta

Rainy Lifestyle Engagement Portraits in Atlanta // Cliff & Sedrick

I absolutely adored spending the day with Cliff & Sedrick to capture their lifestyle engagement session in Atlanta. When we began planning their engagement photos, we initially wanted to capture some photos at their home and then visit Oakland Cemetery… but the weather had other plans. This fall, Georgia got so many random and surprise storms. The day of Cliff & Sedrick’s session happened to be one of those surprises. Thankfully, I always love a good challenge and we pivoted on the spot to make some magic for these two!

Much like we originally planned, we kicked off Cliff & Sedrick’s session at home. There, they showed me what makes their time together special. From working on a Hocus Pocus Lego set to listening to some records and cuddling with their dog, Shay, it was the perfect rainy day. Cliff even played some Disney music on the piano for Sedrick {and me}. I could have hung out all day! After showing off their latest Lego masterpiece {a super adorable Haunted Mansion-like piece with working lights and a drop elevator!!}, Cliff & Sedrick changed so we could head out into Atlanta for a little bit.

Sedrick recently found a super cute ice cream shop, La Michocana and we headed there for a little treat. Because of the weather, we basically had the place to ourselves, so we played around with some colorful spots at the Westside shopping center. As always, I’m a big fan of wandering around and working with what speaks to me or my couple. 

Despite the surprising weather, Cliff & Sedrick were in great spirits and we had a lot of fun. This is actually the second surprisingly rainy session I’ve had this season and they’re no big deal! We just go with it and get awesome shots anyway. I’m so thankful for couples who trust me and are willing to roll with the punches! Cliff & Sedrick, thank you for hosting me for your gorgeous lifestyle engagement portraits in your Atlanta home. I cannot wait for your wedding this month at the always gorgeous Swan House. I know it will be a beautiful day!
