You ever arrive to an engagement session to have a client say “we really don’t need engagement photos, we just wanted to meet you!”? Yeah, me either until last night :’) I’m photographing Kelsey and Zach’s wedding next month at Morgan’s on Fulton, so we spent the evening getting to know each other, hanging with their sweet girl Roo, and grabbing a bite at Small Cheval (their late night wedding snack, my kind of people.) This is the second time in the last two weeks I have had an engagement session end at Small Cheval and I truly cannot complain (every time you ask me “do you want a burger?” from Small Cheval I will say yes, even if I am not hungry, and I will enjoy every last bite.)

Scroll to see some photos from their not-an-actual-engagement-session session.

BEHIND THE LENS

hi, i'm ARIELLE.

You can usually find me home with my golden retriever or day dreaming of my next trip to Italy.

I am a firm believer in living life with purpose and never missing the opportunity to experience something new. The Meyers-Briggs test says I am an ESFJ, and my friends say I am the person they come to when they need comfort, advice, or fresh baked goods. I consider myself an empath, so special moments you share with your loved ones will likely get me all teary eyed and sentimental. I am not here to pretend life is picture perfect, but to capture genuine emotion and create timeless pieces of art to decorate your home. I’m constantly striving for perfection, but have a calming personality and am relatively easy going. 

When the camera is not around my neck, I am a big home body. I love hanging on the couch with my dog, making pasta, breads and desserts from scratch, squatting 400+ pounds in the gym, or plotting my next trip outside of the US. As a direct descendant of Italian immigrants, I feel most at home in Italy (and speak a bit of Italian, too.)
