We met this adorable couple a few months ago and were so excited to be working with them. They bring a genuine joy and real personality to life. Kleb works with computers (something way more advanced than I can describe!) and Wanjiku (Shiku for short) is a nurse and studying to be a nurse anesthetist (I hope I got that right!). They win the “Clients with the Coolest Names” award for sure! Kleb is from Haiti, and Shiku is from Kenya. Their wedding is going to be a blast!
For their engagement session, we met at Piedmont Park on a busy Saturday afternoon. We overheard Shiku say something about getting 3 hours of sleep the night before. Yes! She was looking this stinkin’ amazing with only 3 hours of sleep. I am pretty sure I would have cancelled, but she is a trooper and enduring nursing school like a champ. (Okay, so…I don’t normally say “champ” but I couldn’t think of any cooler words….maybe I need some sleep too?)
Here is a fun sample of our afternoon at Piedmont Park before we get into the entire collection.
Aren’t they just the cutest couple?!! They were so sweet and happy together the entire engagement session. And you haven’t seen anything yet!
We found this really cool pavilion over the water and thought the ceiling would make a cool photo from below.
These two were just naturals. They totally knew what they were doing and pretty much needed no direction from us.
I love their smiles.
This photo was taken near the end of the session, as it was getting dark out side. Those street lamps just make such a romantic ambiance.
Piedmont Park is an awesome Atlanta park. Every walkway is gorgeous.
You can’t have sunset with the Atlanta skyline showing and not take advantage of it!
This couple was so much fun! I love their expressions and the personality that shows through in their photographs.
Kleb likes soccer. As a matter of fact; that’s his favorite video game. And he could play the same video game for years and not get bored. Shiku even said that he plays the same teams against each other.
So Kleb has his soccer goal and his lady. What more could a guy ask for!
This wasn’t the planned pose, but I love how it turned out!!
This one was pretty cute, too.
Shiku looks so peaceful and happy here. I am pretty sure Shiku was taking a mini-nap.
Dude! She is gorgeous and he looks so manly.
Yup. I bet Shiku was napping again, but she just looks so gorgeous like that.
During engagement sessions, we try to let the couple have some alone time. Life gets busy with wedding planning added in on top of all the things you have to do. So we try to make engagement sessions to feel like a break from all the hassle. And this is what happens.
We found these really cool (really tall!!!) stairs at the edge of the open fields. As usual, they rocked the stairs!
When a girl wants a kiss…
She gets a kiss!
And he might get one, too…
Don’t they look so happy and snuggled up!!
Easily one of my favorites of the day. I love it when boys adore girls.
Our engagement session was full of laughs and a great time! We love our job because it means hanging out with great people!
All of the happiness!!
Shiku has some super cool purple glasses. Not just anyone can rock purple glasses like this girl can!
I love love LOVE this one. Really. LOVE. IT.
Kleb and Shiku will be getting married later this summer at Bear’s Best Golf Course in Suwanee, Georgia. We can’t wait to share in the happy day for this adorable couple!
