Choosing the Right Time and Season

Seasonal Tips

Each season lends a unique touch to your photos:

  • Spring typically brings blooming flowers and a peek at lush greenery.
  • Summer offers vibrant greenery and early session times.
  • Fall boasts of a rich palette of foliage.
  • Winter offers a serene landscape, with bare trees creating a minimalist and dramatic setting.

Optimal Lighting

Early morning or late afternoon—often referred to as the Golden Hour—are the best times for capturing the most flattering natural light.

Tips for a Successful Outdoor Photo Session


Choose outfits that complement the natural setting without blending in entirely. For instance, softer tones work great for spring and summer, while richer colors shine in fall and winter.

Makeup and Grooming

Opt for a natural look to match the outdoor vibe. Remember to bring essential touch-up items with you.


Comfortable footwear, bottled water, and some snacks are always good to have on hand to keep everyone in high spirits.

Client Showcase and Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it; our satisfied clients speak volumes.

“Jaimie and Kyle captured our wedding day perfectly. We booked them for our engagement photos and we knew then that they had to join us for our wedding, too! They are such an incredible team and so much fun!.We are not photogenic or comfortable in front of the camera, but they really put us at ease. Our wedding photos look like US in the best way possible. They captured our dynamic, our silliness, and of course our love for each other. I particularly love Jaimie’s specialty– the backlit, twilight portraits. These are hands down the best pictures I’ve ever seen of us, and they’re a beautiful and unique wedding portrait! You absolutely must book them for your big day.”

"We had a great experience! Jaimie guided us through our engagement session with such ease. She spent time prior over the phone and via email educating us on how to not only pick our outfits but how to make our poses not ‘pose-y’. Our engagement shoot seemed to only last a few minutes, it was never awkward and I know both my fiance and I loved it. Jaimie gave us direction while still allowing our personalities to shine through! Definitely would recommend her to anyone!"

"Jaimie and Kyle did our engagement and wedding photos. They were phenomenal to work with and we absolutely loved how our photos turned out. They were super transparent and paid a lot of attention to detail through with the whole planning process and delivered amazing photos from both of our sessions. They were easygoing, laid back, fun to work with, and relatable, which helped us relax and enjoy the sessions even more. I would absolutely recommend if you need a photographer in the ATL area."

"We had the best experience with Jaimie taking our engagement pictures at Piedmont Park! My fiancé and I are clueless in front of the camera but Jaimie guided us the whole way through and it was much less uncomfortable than we were expecting! ... She was so well organized throughout the entire process of scheduling, preparing, and executing the engagement photos and it was very evident that she has a lot of experience... So glad we chose Jaimie for our engagement photos!"
