Ally & Taylor | Alpharetta City Hall Engagement | Alpharetta Wedding Photographer

Sunday was a cold day for Ally and Taylor's Alpharetta City Hall Engagement!

Sunday was a cold day for Ally and Taylor’s Alpharetta City Hall Engagement!

I’m going to admit it. Walking away from this session really makes me want to be best friends with Ally and Taylor. They both love to cook, drink wine, both love Star Wars (YAASS!), and they have the most adorable and playful puppy named Chewbacca! I mean they just sound like an amazing couple, right?!?! So when they reached out to me to have an Alpharetta City Hall Engagement, I could not contain my excitement! They apparently walk Chewbacca around there all the time so it made it even more personal. While the day of was a bit cold (<40 degrees), these two were amazing to work with and I just loved posing them in all of these fun positions!

How They Met

Ally and Taylor met while attending their graduate school’s orientation. Ally walked into a crowded room, hoping to find a table by herself so she can could finish her work. She ended up at Taylor’s table because it had the least number of people. While Ally had the best intentions, Taylor ended up chatting to her and making small talk. They even ended up LinkedIn buddies by the end of orientation. Since school wasn’t for a couple more weeks, Ally continued life as it normally was. But then before classes started, Taylor messaged her on LinkedIn. They exchanged a couple of messages about their nervousness, and ended up promising each other to save a seat for each other during class. One lunch breakd, they ended up at a table on the patio talking to each other and Ally says she has never had a better conversation with someone. They talked about all sorts of things, but then, they started talking about how all of Taylor’s friends were married or in a relationship. This unfortunately caused Taylor to be the “single friend”. He started joking around about how his friends always asked “So who is Taylor going to marry?”. Ally distinctly remember hearing a voice inside her scream “ME!”. She just knew it. It had to be him.

The Proposal

Ally and Taylor celebrated their 1.5 year anniversary a little early and made a reservation at Chops for April 1st. After dinner they went home to let their puppy out. During the walk, Taylor got down on one knee and said “this isn’t an April Fool’s joke…”. Ally says she couldn’t process what was going on anymore and just kept saying “yes. yes. yes.” over and over and hugging him.

Thank you Taylor and Ally for letting me capture your engagement session and getting to hang out with your fluffy puppy! You guys are absolutely amazing and I hope your Napa Valley wedding is full of laughter, memories, and of course, lots of wine!
