Heather & Hamied met back in high school at Central Gwinnett, but were only ever friends. It wasn’t until they ran into each other at a bar 8 years later that they hit it off and began dating. Now they own a house together and are getting married next summer!
Since Hamied went to UGA and loves visiting Athens, they agreed to come here for their engagement photos. Heather sent me her outfit ideas and then let me choose the locations (I LOVE when clients trust me like this!). When I saw her epic red dress, I knew immediately that I wanted to photograph it in the Latin American Ethnobotanical Garden on campus (a little hidden gem that not many people know about). And since Heather loves golden hour light and chose a more casual outfit for her second look, I thought it would be great to end on top of a parking deck with downtown Athens in the background and all the golden rays.
Heather & Hamied were so much fun to photograph, but I must say my favorite part of the session was their dog, Katy. She’s a 9 year old Chihuahua who absolutely stole the show. I love these photos, which include brews, “team rivalry” hats from their college football teams, and some major T Swift vibes from Heather. Enjoy!! And congrats, Heather & Hamied!
