Meet Preston and Katelyn!
These two have known each other since their freshman year of college at Samford University, but it wasn’t until after graduating that the two officially started dating. There’s something extra special about building a friendship and having it blossom into a relationship, especially when the friendship turns into one that will last forever.
One of their favorite things to do together is to laugh, whether they are laughing together or at one another, so I wanted to make sure I captured that. Aren’t their smiles simply contagious?
The couple chose to take their engagement pictures at Founders Garden on UGA’s campus. The classic, sophisticated landscaping made for a beautiful backdrop.
Preston proposed to Katelyn in November 2015 by sending her on a fun, meaningful scavenger hunt throughout Athens and Watkinsville, with friends greeting Katelyn at each location holding the next clue. The final clue took Katelyn to Herman C. Michael Park—the couple’s favorite spot to go for a run—where Preston was anxiously awaiting her arrival. When Preston popped the question, Katelyn (of course!) said yes!
I’m so excited to photograph them again for their wedding on December 16, 2016.
Cheers to the future Smiths!
