Leah + Joseph Engaged | A Brown Mountain Beach Resort Engagement

Fall Brown Mountain Beach Resort Engagement Session in Collettsville, North Carolina


A Fall Brown Mountain Beach Resort Engagement | Collettsville, North Carolina


Leah and Joseph’s Brown Mountain Beach Resort engagement session was our final engagement shoot for the season and it was amazing! We may not have had the dry warm weather we were hoping for but those rain clouds certainly made the Fall colors pop! And do you think Leah and Joseph complained once about the weather … not at all!!! These two were a dream to work with!

Leah and Joseph chose Brown Mountain Beach Resort for their engagement session location since they will be getting married at this venue next year and fell in love with the Fall colors covering the grounds! I have seen photos of the grounds at this venue before but there is nothing like seeing this venue in person! It is absolutely stunning and has just about everything, a beach, water, cliffs and trees!

Leah and Joseph are two of the sweetest people. You know when you meet someone and you just know instantly that your going to love them? That’s what we experienced with Leah and Joseph. It was so great being able to see their gorgeous wedding venue ahead of their big day and we enjoyed having some one-on-one time getting to know these two!

Leah and Joseph are getting married this coming Summer, and we couldn’t be more excited for their celebration at Brown Mountain Beach Resort! In just a couple of hours with them, we could just tell how much they love each other and the amount of fun they have together. Their genuine joy made it so easy to capture these special moments!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from this Brown Mountain Beach Resort engagement session and get excited to see these two on the blog again next summer for their wedding!

Mary + Peter Engaged | A Fall Table Rock State Park Engagement

Fall Table Rock State Park Engagement Session in Pickens, South Carolina


A Fall Table Rock State Park Engagement | Pickens, South Carolina


Mary and Peter’s fall Table Rock State Park Engagement was our first shoot this season during the peak fall colors and it was perfection! The weather was beautiful and the light was golden as the sun began to set around the mountains! These two were incredibly fun and up for anything! From climbing rocks to walking through water … Mary and Peter were so adventurous and fun!! The type of session that had me even more excited for what’s to come for their wedding day next year!

When Mary and I were chatting about engagement session locations, she mentioned wanting a nice natural location with lakes or foothills in the background. So when we suggested Table Rock State Park it was the perfect match! We started their session by exploring some of Table Rock’s beautiful waterfall filled trails and ended our session in an overgrown field overlooking the mountains and lake. I still can’t get over all the gorgeous colors!!

These two will be getting married at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, South Carolina next spring and I’m already so excited to see them again! If anyone knows me well then you know I’m a huge animal lover so I’m not going to lie … I’m super excited for our first wedding at a zoo! It’s going to be so fun!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from this fall Table Rock State Park engagement session and start getting excited for their Riverbanks Zoo wedding next year!

Ashley + Brian Engaged | A Lake Conestee Nature Park Engagement

Summer Lake Contestee Nature Park Engagement Session


A Lake Conestee Nature Park Engagement | Greenville, South Carolina


This engagement session was a fun one! And not because it took place in the middle of August … that was the not so fun part! I’m actually pretty sure it felt like one of the hottest summer nights in South Carolina! But Ashley and Brian didn’t let it bother them one bit! They happily guided us through some of their favorite spots around Lake Conestee Nature Park while we captured their love!

Lake Conestee was the perfect location for their engagement session! Ashley loves the outdoors and nature and they both enjoy walking the trails together in this beautiful park! We started our session along the bridge crossing the Reedy River and made our way through the wooded trail leading to a beautiful opening full of wildflowers and long grass. Closer to sunset we found the perfect scenic overlook of the South Bay to watch the summer sunset and capture the most beautiful golden summer light!

It was pretty amazing!! Between the river, trees, wildflowers, fields, water and summer sunset … it was everything I love about South Carolina! Congratulations, Ashley & Brian! You two truly have a special connection and we are so happy we were able to capture your engagement! Enjoy our favorites from your session and we can’t wait until your wedding day!

Shae + Devin Engaged | A Downtown Charleston Engagement

Downtown Charleston South Carolina Engagement Session


A Downtown Charleston Engagement Session | Charleston, South Carolina


When you are a photographer, you normally have a wish list of all the gorgeous locations you hope to photograph at. And Charleston, South Carolina was on that wish list for us! So when I say this is probably my favorite session to date, I’m not kidding! Charleston did not disappoint! In fact, if I could photograph every session in Charleston I’m not sure I would ever get sick of it! Our only problem was time … not enough of it since we were inspired every time we turned a corner!! So here’s to hoping for more sessions in Charleston and adding a Charleston wedding to our wish list!!

So a huge thanks to Shae & Devin for picking such an amazing engagement session location! These two went to college in Charleston for Physical Therapy while dating, so it was the perfect location to celebrate the next step in their love story! We loved exploring this magical city with these two! Shae and Devin are such a joy and we felt an instant connection with them walking around. And even though we didn’t get that pink sunset that we have grown to love about Charleston, I think the weather actually worked to our advantage. If anyone has been to Charleston in August there is only one word for it, HOT!!! And even though it was still pretty hot, the cloud cover definitely cooled things off and the waterfront had the most amazing breeze! So I would say it was a win!

We started our session on Meeting Street with some of the prettiest homes I have ever seen! The gates, front doors, greenery, flower boxes, and color. I’m just in love! I can’t get enough! Then we worked our way toward the waterfront and Queen Street. Gimmee all the cobblestone and Oak Trees! And we ended our session with my favorites, the battery and Rainbow Row! I still remember my first visit to the battery like it was yesterday, such a special place and it gets better every visit! It’s almost impossible to be in this park without hordes of tourists and you could pretty much say we had the park to ourselves!

Congratulations Shae and Devin!! We had the best time getting to know the two of you in Charleston and we are so excited for your wedding next February! Enjoy some of our favorites from your Charleston Engagement Session!
