Mike and Tracy are just two people who, from the minute you meet them, are not only warm and kind, but also just seem like they go together. When I first met with them, I loved how they told me of when they first met- how they had a friend that had been trying to set them up, but it took being matched through an app to actually meet. It was so much fun hearing Tracy’s vision for her wedding day! They’re getting married next year in Uptown, so it made sense to do part of their engagement session in their city at Romare Bearden Park.
But Mike and Tracy also recently had their first home together built. Mike proposed at the lot where their home was going. I think it’s so incredibly sweet and romantic to propose somewhere like that! It was so special to the two of them! It also holds so much promise of their future together. Not only in their new home, but now as future husband and wife! So when Tracy suggested doing the first part of their session in their brand new home- it fit perfectly!
It also ended up being incredibly helpful. I think when we first planned this session, nobody thought the end of September would be 90+ degree heat! It was so helpful being able to be indoors for the first part of their session! And y’all. This house was made for photos! So much natural light. White kitchen. Light walls. It was what dreams are made of for photographers!
Mike and Tracy, thank you both so much for opening up you (stunning) brand new home and letting me photograph you there! And for dealing with seriously ridiculous heat! Y’all were such troopers and up for anything, and I’m so appreciative! Cannot wait to see the memories you fill your home with as husband and wife. So excited for your wedding in April!
