When Savannah and Kyle reached out to me for their Georgia engagement photos, they had a clear vision in mind: they wanted their photos to have an old money kind of feel with a touch of editorial flair. Fast forward to March 2023, Kyle chose the romantic setting of the Botanical Gardens to propose to Savannah, against a backdrop of her favorite flower, orchids (how freaking intentional!!). This Montaluce Winery engagement photo shoot was a day to remember. Clear skies and abundant sunshine set the stage for our shoot, although the brisk wind added a touch of chill to the air. We timed our session just before golden hour, allowing the sun's warm glow to feed into the romantic vibe.

A Cinematic Inspiration: Creating Old Money Engagement Photos


Taking cues from movies portraying wealthy families escaping to their Hamptons estates or vineyards for leisurely weekends, I envisioned Savannah and Kyle's engagement session to be reminiscent of those iconic scenes. Think picnics on manicured lawns, lounging in the sun, and an air of timeless sophistication and romance.

Classic Vintage Editorial Meets Playful Romance


Mixing classic vintage editorial poses with candid shots, we managed to strike the perfect balance between old-world elegance and playful romance. One of the standout moments was capturing Savannah and Kyle in a beautifully iconic pose among a flower field, reminiscent of the timeless Edward and Bella photo but with a unique edge that screamed timeless.
