My senior year of college, one of my close friends and sorority sisters from the University of Alabama and I interned in Atlanta. We rented an apartment, rented furniture to put in it and spent the summer living on less than $8 per hour working in Buckhead. To this day I’m not sure how we did it on that pay and working amidst the best shopping area, but we did it! Every time I go back for a work trip, I’m reminded of that summer and the fun experience it was feeling like an independent adult living in a new and bigger city for the first time. I’m also reminded how every work experience was valuable and led me to owning my own business.
A few weekends ago I headed to Atlanta for a site visit and Engagement Session with Maggie and Peyton, whose wedding I’ll be photographing there in September. I was so excited to get to know them better as we roamed beautiful Lullwater Park on Emory University’s campus. Planner: Yvonne Spiotta
