Eengagement photos at Centennial Olympic Park and SkyView Ferris Wheel
As a Atlanta wedding photographer at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com I get to photograph some amazing locations! This week I had the honor of photographing this wonderful couple at the Atlanta Centennial Park. They got engaged at the SkyView Ferris Wheel. What a romantic story! They wanted their photography to capture that area of Atlanta.
They SkyView Ferris Wheel where they got engaged at is owering nearly 20 stories above Centennial Park. According to their website "the SkyView Ferris wheel features 42 climate-controlled gondolas providing guest with breathtaking panoramic views of downtown Atlanta and the surrounding metropolitan area. Those looking for an even more enhanced experience will enjoy our VIP gondola boasting Ferrari leather seats, glass floor and a longer flight time. And, with its convenient location just steps from many of Atlanta’s most popular attractions, SkyView Atlanta is the perfect compliment to your downtown adventure. SkyView. You can see Atlanta from here."
We did most of the photography at Centennial Olympic Park according to the website the history of the park is:
"Following the Olympic Games, a large portion of the park was closed and redesigned for daily public use. A gala commemoration weekend in March 1998 introduced the newly landscaped Park and its expanded amenities.
Today, this unique 21-acre park performs a dual mission: it serves as Georgia’s lasting legacy of the Centennial Olympic Games and it anchors efforts to revitalize residential and commercial development in Georgia’s capital city of Atlanta.
The Georgia World Congress Center Authority has operational responsibility for Centennial Olympic Park, as well as the Georgia Dome and Georgia World Congress Center."
While at the park we did most of the photography at the fountain. There are some amazing facts on the Fountain!
