Jolie & Josh – Engagement

November 23, 2011

Tired of meeting all the Mr. Wrong’s, Jolie decided it was time to hit up a dating website. A place where she could be very specific about who she was and more importantly, who she wanted to meet. One of the first people Jolie got matched with was a guy named Josh and he seemed perfect on paper. They chatted briefly and made arrangements to go on a date, but a few days before Jolie cancelled. Christmas was approaching and things just kept popping up last minute, so they rescheduled their date for the Thursday after New Years. New Years Eve however, Joile found herself out with friends drinking and partying at one of Atlanta’s hippest Irish bars (YAY for Irish bars). During the evenings celebrations, Jolie found herself chatting to very cute guy. Things were going well, there was a definite connection, cute guy even felt like they had met somewhere before, but he couldn’t figure out where. Suddenly, out of nowhere, both Jolie and Josh realized they had met before, on the dating website. He was the guy she had been matched with, the guy who’s date she had cancelled and rescheduled, for the very next Thursday. Seriously, if this is not faith/destiny in action, then I don’t know what is. Needless to say, the date went amazing and just over a year later they were engaged. Jolie and Josh will marry next March, unfortunately I will not be available to capture their special day, but I was honored to get the opportunity to work with both of them for their engagement session…….. here are some of my favorite shots from the day.

We began the session at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta.


Jolie, your looking fabulous.

Workin it Josh, in a manly way.

Bling, bling!

This was the very spot where Josh proposed to Jolie, so it was imperative we get some fierce pictures here.


After a quick outfit change we took a walk around the downtown streets and found ourselves right outside the historic Fox Theatre.

Fierce dress and fierce shoes.
