Romantic Adventure Sunrise Engagement Session at Arabia Mountain - Destination Wedding Photographer

Updated: Jan 26

Watching Colorado born Katherine and her fiancé Doster, I remembered how the quote "love is in the air" makes sense. Looking at them, you can feel it. It's almost palpable. Waking up before dawn for a sunrise session is definitely worth the effort. The first golden hour of the day has its own magic, even a different smell, it's pure and silent. In addition, it provides a more private environment as not everyone is willing to brave the twilight chill to make it happen.


I'm quite used to photographing and filming at Arabia Mountain, the northern of two peaks in the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve, in DeKalb County, Georgia, United States. It's a beautiful location that offers several photo options. The mountain and the barn look like 2 completely different locations. No wonder that it's one of the first places I recommend to my clients for their engagement photos and video.


Katherine and Doster,

It was a pleasure photographing you! Your infectious joy is amazing and I loved capturing your romantic mountain engagement session, I can’t thank you enough for flying from Texas and waking up so early to take these photos, and I'm confident that you didn't regret it! I'm so excited for your wedding, so we can have a fun time again! I absolutely cannot wait to see you two!


Enjoy the photos!
