When you follow the work of other photographers in the city you live, you start to see really cool locations you had no idea about. I think everyone has said at some point “man I wish I could shoot there!” about some place they’ve seen on social media. Well there’s one location here in Atlanta that I’ve always wanted to photograph a couple in and that wish came true for Macauley and John’s greenhouse engagement session!
The old Briarcliff Mansion in Atlanta is one of those hidden treasures that really has become a favorite spot for local photographers. I mean how could you not love a location that has a 1920’s greenhouse attached to it? Unfortunately, like with most hidden treasures, it might only be a matter of time until someone decides to change it. There’s been talk for a few years about redeveloping it and access has been harder and harder to come by.
I’ve gotten to do a few personal shoots and collaborations around the mansion in the past, but never anything for a wedding client. Macauley happened to see one of those collaborations over on my Instagram. She loved the location and asked if we could engagement photos there. Of course I said yes!
Luckily didn’t have have any trouble getting into the greenhouse to shoot. You know never know when a place like this isn’t going to be around anymore. I’m so glad got the chance to capture this awesome couple there!
I had such a great time at this greenhouse engagement session! We can’t wait for their wedding later this year!!
