Engagement Session: Carrie + Devon

Carrie & Devon are just the cutest and sweetest couple that you could come across! They are so fun to be around and truly meant for one another. I met them through one of my closest friends and we hit it off immediately. We've been planning together since late last year and their wedding day is so close - less than 30 days to go! They are getting married at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, one of my favorite venues. Here are their gorgeous engagement pictures from their session with Brian Dean Photography. I love them! Don't they look like they are straight out of a country music video? I can't wait for Carrie & Devon's wedding day to arrive, it's going to be beautiful!!
