This couple is such a bundle of fun and adventure! I met them through another one of my lovely couples, Steve and Jess. Their wedding is coming up in November and I’m excited to show you their engagement session.
We started out downtown, venturing around the streets and stopping at anything that looked like a good idea! The day that we chose, happened to be ridiculously hot. Poor Cameron was sweating up a storm in his long-sleeve shirt…bless his heart! (Hopefully the pictures won’t show that)
After we left downtown we drove over to Sullivan’s Island. I was in my car behind Cam’s awesome Jeep, and noticed that the sun was setting beautifully. I was about to pick up my phone and call to tell them to pull over, but they beat me to it and we hopped out and snapped a few shots on the side of the road before landing at the beach.
At the beach we had a blast. They had already planned to end their session by running into the ocean to cool off from the heat. I enjoyed this shoot tremendously and I hope you love it too!
The adventure of Allie’s bridal portraits was probably the most fun I’ve had photographing in a while. If you put together all of our senses of humor with Allie’s sassy side, you’re bound to have a good time. For the first bit of our day, it was a bit of an uncertainty of whether or not the portraits were even going to happen. There had been a mishap with the salon but they came through and fit Allie’s trial in last minute. Our meeting place was Clemson University. I ventured around the area for a bit, just turning down random roads to scope out picture spots.
When Allie and her wonderful mom, Susan, arrived we met up at a local lodge and made a game plan. This was my first time meeting Susan, and I must say I absolutely ADORE her. She was such a great help and source of laughter throughout the day.
After doing her bridal portraits, I couldn’t wait to shoot her wedding. Having only met Allie and her mother, I knew that the rest of their family would be just as much fun. To view their wedding, check out the blog post right before this one!
Where do I start? I loved this couple the moment I met them. Considering they both showed up in Clemson attire, it seemed like a match made in heaven. When we did their engagement shoot a while back, it was rainy but with their consent we did it anyway! I remember Allie saying, “My friends aren’t going to believe me when I tell them I just did my engagement photos in the rain, I HATE the rain!”.
I was first contacted by Allie because her cousin, Katie, had told her about me. Katie and I grew up together in dance class and in school, and I was so excited to be able to spend a wedding day with one of my best friends and her awesome family!
The wedding was in downtown Greenville, SC. After they’d had some bad luck with some wedding planners, Allie’s mom, Susan, took the wedding planning upon herself and I think she did an AMAZING job. One of my favorite parts of their wedding day, was when Allie’s father, Charlie, got up and dedicated part of the reception to those they had lost. He had 3 roses and gave them to the family members closest to those who had passed away. I almost shed a few tears, it was such a unique and sincere moment.
I could write a novel about my love for this couple but I’ve got to stop myself at some point. Check out these photos and give some love to Allie and Will!
