Athens, GA Loves | Couples Session

There is nothing like going home. Athens, Georgia definitely has all those feelings for me. It is where I spent some of the best 3 years of my live, made so many dear friends, discovered my love of photography, and met my husband! So I was ecstatic when Leslie + Jack reached out about taking photos there! Leslie is one of my oldest friends and is the person who taught me how to shoot, introducing me to the wedding world that I love so dearly! She also photographed our Savannah wedding back in 2016… so needless to say, I love the girl! Jack has actually been living in Germany for a few years now so the two wanted to take advantage of this little weekend that he would be back in the states to celebrate + document their love. We had a grand time just exploring the area right near Leslie’s house, being goofy… annnddd playing in the road. Luckily, Jack will be back home for real super soon!

Now, if you have never been to Athens, you need to plan a little trip in the fall! It is a charming little town and home of the DAWGS. So take a long weekend, go to a UGA football game in Samford Stadium, venture around town and grab coffee or drinks at Walkers, breakfast at Mama’s Boy, and dinner… man this is such an incredible food town and you really can’t go wrong.  Most importantly, if you like craft beer, you need to hit up Creature Comforts!! Like this is the stuff we stock pile when we visit! PS- they have a glorious outdoor patio.
