Kara + Nick | Piedmont Park Engagement Session

The day before I met with Kara + Nick I heard on the radio that the Ferguson trial was about to go down and there would be picketers in a park in Atlanta.  I was a little freaked out!  I immediately called Kara with my concern.  I later realized the radio DJ was talking about Woodruff park and not Piedmont.  The day of there session, it looked like t-total poo outside.  It was just dreary and yuck.  I was ready to cancel and reschedule.  We ended up meeting at the park and I’m so glad we did!  It turned out to be a gorgeous evening in Atlanta with these two!

Kara met Nick at Georgia Southern University and were good friends for years. After Nick transferred to GA Tech he asked her to go to formal with him. They started dating shortly after. Kara knew he was the one when he lied about coming to her 21st birthday party. He said he couldn’t come because of a prior engagement.  She was sad he couldn’t make it but understood.  She went out for dinner with some friends, and looked up and he was standing there.  🙂

After Kara’s birthday they would travel to see each other every other weekend.  After over 4 years of long distance and driving back and forth to see each other, Kara moved to Atlanta!  


In April Kara had Spring Break.  (Perks of being a teacher!)  Her + Nick made plans to go to New York City to visit their friends.  New York is such a magical place to Kara.  They saw the Broadway show Pippin, walked around Times Square, and went to some cool bars and restaurants.  On that Thursday of their trip, while their friends were at work, Nick said he wanted to walk around Central Park.  When they got to Central Park, Kara suggested they get pretzels. This wasn’t a part of Nick’s plan!  

He then had Kara pick out a bridge on their map and they walked to it. Once they got to Bow Bridge they watched the people rowing their boats and the swans. After a few minutes Nick asked Kara if she wanted to be with him for the rest of her life. I said, “Of course!” Then he got down on one knee and proposed.

Kara + Nick I can’t wait to photograph your beautiful wedding day at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center!

Happy Thursday y’all!
Love.
