Colorful Atlanta Portrait Session // Frankie & Rachel

Frankie & Rachel have been married for a little while now, but getting engaged or married are not the only reasons to have photos taken! It can be a really fun time for any reason. And Frankie and Rachel’s Atlanta portrait session was ridiculously fun. I wanted to celebrate the way their love looks and the way they carry themselves with such an alternative panache that commands all the applause. {We legitimately had someone shout “y’all are killin’ me, baby!” out their window while we were shooting, y’all. These two know how to SERVE.}

We opted for a couple of different spots to photograph their portrait session, starting with the rainbow crosswalks in Midtown! These crosswalks are a staple of Atlanta and I’ve always wanted to photograph there {and Frankie had been wanting to, as well!}. After we’d strutted around, really capturing some quintessential Atlanta-ness, we headed down the street to dip into Piedmont Park. The field at Piedmont Park has such a fantastic view of the city, plus tons of room to play around!

The next spot we headed to was the Beltline, finding the MOST fun rainbow wall on our walk to the main thoroughfare. Lastly, we hit up two different mural spots right at the entrance of the Beltline towards Ponce City Market. I love the Atlanta mural, and anything with rainbows is – obviously – going to draw my eye immediately!

What were you most anxious or nervous about regarding your session and how did it turn out?

I was nervous that we were running late, that my dress looked wrinkled and that I hadn’t replaced some of the rhinestones that had fallen off my dress as I had intended to do. portrait session in Piedmont Park for married coupleAlabama couple in vintage outfits pose in Piedmont Park with Raven Shutley Studios

What was your favorite moment of the shoot?

My favorite moment was getting the photos back and seeing how AMAZING they were, even despite the fact I wasn’t feeling my prettiest that day.

What advice would you give to others planning a session?

-Bring walking shoes to switch back and forth with your dress shoes in case you end up walking to multiple nearby locations!
-Hide touch up powder discretely in your cleavage!
