Man, talk about a breath of fresh air.
I first met Jenna back in 2014 when I was shopping for my wedding dress. She was the consultant at Gown Boutique of Charleston that helped me find my dream dress, so when she contacted me to photograph her wedding, I was stoked. My first thought was, well, this girl has seen me naked. Cool. My second thought was, I am so honored that she has chosen me out of all of the photographers in Charleston. On a side note, I’ve gotten a sneak peak of Jenna’s dress, and DANG she’s going to be one heck of a stunner on her wedding day.
When Jenna isn’t helping brides find their dream dress, she’s loving on her awesome fiancé Luke, who is a landscaper with a crazy green thumb. Their back yard oasis is insane. Luke has a passion for growing plants and vegetables, and I’m definitely going to get him to come save the pathetic shrubbery in Jordan and I’s front yard. And when Jenna isn’t loving on Luke, she’s loving on her beautiful horse, Lucky. She trains him and shows him in horse shows and competitions around the country. Lucky definitely stole the show during their engagement session, but let’s face it, we all expected that from him 🙂
Jenna and Luke wanted their engagement photos to be a true reflection of their lifestyle, and dang was it good. I met up with them at their house, which doubles as a barn for Lucky. We utilized the land around their house for their shoot. It was just so relaxed and organic, and no one was trying to make it something that it wasn’t. I kept telling them over and over that they were a breath of fresh air, because they weren’t basing their shoot off of anyone else’s, they were staying true to who they were.
Okay, so these two right here are just the best, most awkward, human beings on this earth. About a month ago we ventured out to Botany Bay Plantation, and they endured my lackluster conversation for two hours in the car. God bless them. I felt it wouldn’t be right to blog their session without including a decent amount of bloopers from their session, because in reality the majority of their session was outtakes…which I’m 100% down with. On a more serious note, Molly and Lance are my spirit animals — they both love dogs (they have 3 plus 1 foster dog), they have the cutest house, and they sparked my desire to redo furniture found at thrift stores. Thanks for being 100% yourselves, and not caring if you look cute doing it 😉
Side note, the bugs are TERRIBLE out at Botany Bay….these pictures are evidence of that.
