paloma + jack | PIEDMONT PARK ENGAGEMENT

Can you imagine leaving behind your home, family, and friends for a whirlwind dream opportunity, halfway across the world? Two years ago, Paloma answered the call of a lifetime to change the world, one human connection at a time, in one of the poorest countries in the Americas. With the ink barely dry on her Architecture degree, she boarded a plane for Nicaragua .. with dreams of finding clean water solutions and building schools for the local community, inspiring growth and love and friendship.. never realizing the entire way there that one of the biggest connections of her own life was out there waiting for her!

There aren’t a lot of people like Paloma and Jack in the world. From the way they met (washing dishes in the community kitchen in Chinandega – Jack saw her alone at the sink and pitched in to help, they discovered they were both Georgia Tech grads with mutual friends, and the rest is history!) – to the sheer amount of passion and dedication they put into their daily missionary work, to the way they look at each other now, these two have such a genuine, deep love that radiates out in every moment they share together. Paloma and Jack are hands-down one of the easiest couples I’ve yet to photograph. Despite the rainy forecast for the weekend, the two of them laughed and smiled throughout their entire session, and even the sun finally peeked out through the clouds to celebrate!

I’m so honored to have gotten the chance to meet them in Atlanta for their engagement session in Piedmont Park, and look forward to their sweet winter wedding later this year!

    This is such a beautiful and touching story. These types of couples are why I love weddings and you did such a great job with this engagement shoot that I can’t wait to see what their wedding photos will look like.
