I love the rain.  I love the wonderful smell, the cozy feel and the downright romantic vibe it brings to each and every moment it touches.  Moments like the ones filling this mesmerizing engagement session captured beautifully by Buffy Dekmar Photography, a true Georgian day featuring one seriously lovely duo and image after image of pure pretty.  See it all in the full gallery.

From Buffy Dekmar Photography… Mallory and Ross are from Texas, but a big part of their engagement has been spent in Georgia, where Ross is in officer’s training at Fort Benning. The couple wanted a quintessential Georgia backdrop for their engagement photos, so we chose the antebellum Bellevue Mansion and the pine grove at Hills and Dales Estate. Afterall, there isn’t much that is more “Georgia” than pine trees, magnolias, and Civil War history.

Mallory was in town for just one day, so we were a little bit discouraged to see big gray clouds looming on the way to their session. The clouds stayed, and the rain came and went, but the couple’s cheerfulness never wavered. I was reminded that when you’re young and madly in love (slippery sidewalks aside), inclement weather can only add romance to the equation.
