Engagements

Hilton Head Island, SC Engagement Photographer | Alexcia + Dustin

Engagement sessions on the island are becoming one of my favorite types of sessions to book and can you blame me!? Not only does my sweet couple get to walk away with unique + one of a kind portraits but it also gives me a chance to play tour guide and show my clients all the sweet spots that the island has to offer!

Enter Alexcia + Dustin! These two traveled from Nevada + Savannah to do their engagement here on the island while they were taking a mini vacation together over the 4th of July weekend and we decided that Harbour Town + the beaches of Sea Pines would be the perfect backdrop for their morning session. I love this session because you can literally see the sun changing and rising throughout their session and I just love that! 

So sit back on this Friday morning, grab some coffee, and enjoy some of my favorites!

Piedmont Park Engagement Session | Stefy + Paul

It has been another busy week on the blog as I finally get caught up on all the portrait sessions I have been doing lately and today I am happy to feature another one of my 2016 couples, Stefy + Paul! 

How we connected is quite a funny story! You see Stefy and Paul are planning to tie the knot in Hilton Head this fall and while they were here venue scouting back in October, they happened to have met Jeramie one night while he was working at the Beach House! They chatted for a bit, exchanged information, and a few days later we were putting a contract into place! While they may not be getting married at the Beach House later this year, they are planning on using another hotel on the island, The Marriott, and I simply cannot wait!

But back to their session! 

We had originally planned to do the session over at Centennial Olympic Park but due to there being a music festival coming into town that same week, we had to make other arrangements and decided that Piedmont Park would be our best bet! We were blessed with amazing weather, lighting, and some blooms that were still in full swing. These two were such good sports all night and just had the greatest chemistry together. You could truly tell that these two were made for each other and I know that they are eager for October to get here!

Enjoy some of my favorites :)

SweetWater Creek State Park Engagement Session | Arielle + Will

I feel like this engagement session really doesnt even need an introduction because Arielle, Will, and their brand new puppy Titus are pretty much already stealing the show with their opening portrait!

We met up a couple of Sundays ago at Sweetwater Creek State Park to do their engagement session and little fun fact for all my Hunger Game fans out there: this park was used in the last 2 movies so it was so fun to see and stroll around the areas that were used in the films and to feel like Katniss for a hot minute! 

It was a slight bummer that we couldnt shoot down next to or inside the ruins, but we made up for it big time by finding perfect patches of forest and even an area with shallow water so that these two cuties could pose among the rocks and water! 

It was a blast getting to hang out with these three all afternoon and it is easy to say that they were the perfect couple to get "lost" in the woods with! Wouldnt have wanted to walk an extra mile back to the cars at the end with anybody else! Cannot wait to be back in Atlanta in a couple of weeks to shoot their summer wedding!

Savannah, GA Engagement Session | Casey + Nick

I have a feeling that if you were to look up the word 'beautiful' in the dictionary that Savannah, GA is under that definition somewhere! I seriously cannot get over this city no matter how many times I may go and its probably a couple times a month yall! 

Casey + Nick are both Seniors at SCAD with Nick getting a degree in Illustrations to create children's books + Casey getting her's in photography {insert my nerdy creative self just eating up every word from these two haha}, so when they both suggested that we start their session on the SCAD campus where Nick proposed to Casey, I was game! 

It was so fun to learn from the both of them about this cute little courtyard where these two spent so much time their freshmen year getting to know one another and growing their relationship.

We then made our way over to one of Savannah's iconic squares, Pulaski Square, to finish up the session and man oh man this square is easily probably one of my favorites. With it's quieter setting, ivy covered walls + stairs, it was hard not to get lost in it all! 

Savannah always makes for such fun engagement sessions because you can literally start anywhere downtown and just stumble upon the cutest little corners, doors, and houses that will instantly give you what you are looking for! Cannot wait to be back in Savannah to capture Casey + Nick's big day at Red Gate Farms this fall!

Downtown Greenville, SC Engagement Session | Sarah + Sam

One thing that I continue to love about this crazy thing that I get to call a job is getting to explore and discover new places! Insert Greenville, South Carolina! In the past, Greenville has always been one of those places that I just tended to drive through to get to my end destination so being able to spend an evening with Sarah + Sam exploring the very heart of Downtown Greenville was seriously a treat! The area seemed to stretch for miles and had anything and everything from restaurants to shops to gardens to skyline to waterways! Seriously this place was a photography gold mine and the possibilities were just endless! 

Sarah + Sam were lucky enough to have two of their friends cart us around town the whole time so that we could really capture the whole city and all the different places it had to offer! Plus it was a great way to escape the clouds + humidity ... just incase mother nature decided to bring out the rain once more!

We started our time together at one of the community churches that was covered with gorgeous architecture, historic doors, and insanely colorful florals! We then made our way closer to the action of the city where Sam actually lead us to the very place that he proposed to Sarah at and then took us to the coffee shop, Spill the Beans, that these two cuties went to afterwards and it was just the cutest thing!

I loved being able to learn how these two have really grown together not only as a couple but as individuals as well over the years and I cannot wait to see these two react to one another when they see each other on their wedding day at Furman University for the first time and know that all the long distance and wait has been worth it!

Decatur, GA Engagement Session | Brittany + Ryan

EKKK!! I am so excited to share this session with you guys today! Brittany + Ryan are honestly just one of the cutest couples (just look at them) and to say that we clicked last Friday when we met up to do their engagement session is an understatement! And that is a big deal for my highly introverted-self to say!

I drove into town on Friday and met Brittany + Ryan at their home in Decatur, GA so that we could carpool down to Downtown Decatur to start our photo session date together! Never having been to downtown Decatur before, I was blown away by how cute everything was! Everything from the modern restaurants to the quaint ice cream shops to the walking grounds were just incredible. Not to mention that the space was right next door to the courthouse (swoon worthy) was just a bonus!

We spent the evening just moving cute spot to cute spot and then stopped in for ice cream at the very end which was the perfect ending to a perfect session. I cannot wait for their wedding in November at the Pepper Sprout Barn!! Can it just be November already!?
