Corey remembers initially noticing Hannah during their shared business class, when he found out that she already owned and operated her own successful full-time business as a wedding photographer based in Atlanta. Although they lost touch after that first semester of business class, Hannah expresses that the way in which they re-entered each other’s lives could not have been more perfect timing, but was definitely unconventional. They reunited through Yik Yak (of all things!), an anonymous messaging app used on college campuses, and began a friendship that eventually led into one of the most natural, beautiful, and genuine relationships I’ve ever had the pleasure of documenting. I’d been following along with Hannah’s work on social media for quite some time when she asked me to photograph her and Corey. I was so incredibly excited to get to document such a sweet time in their lives, especially knowing first-hand that being a photographer means you rarely get the chance to be on the other side of the camera. Hannah chose Berry College in Rome, GA as her location, not only because the backdrop of the college campus made for some beautiful shots, but because the photographer in her wanted a chance to scout the location for future couples of hers.
One of the most fun and exciting parts about this shoot, aside from the fact that Hannah and Corey are obviously the cutest and so visibly in love with one another, is the fact that I got to photograph a fellow wedding photographer who’s work I sincerely admire!
