Another perfect fall day in Aiken and I was lucky enough to be hanging out with Katie and Fletcher, who happen to be super sweet with one another and who LOVE their hometown. I was so glad we got to explore so many different parts of charming Aiken and have many different looks for their engagement session. Katie and Fletcher grew up in Aiken and will be married there next spring so it’s surely a special place to them. Each time I get to work in this wonderful town makes my heart happy :) Enjoy a few of my favorites!
I’ve been so looking forward to Amanda & Wes’ engagement session and am of course so glad they wanted to include their furbaby Lacie Mae. Engagement session photos that include four-legged kids are my favorite and I’m a bit biased to Goldens and Labs :) Lacie was no exception…she’s a total baby with the sweetest and most playful personality. She is definitely Amanda and Wes’ baby and I’m glad she will be included in these photos to remind them of this sweet in between season of life before they are married. I have so many favorites from this session, and are these two not incredibly good looking? Yup, gorgeous.
It took a few tries for our planned engagement session to pan out schedule and weather-wise but it was SO well worth the wait. The trees in historic Aiken are prime and we had such a nice evening to visit so many of Stephanie and Hunter’s favorite places. When Stephanie asked if she could include her horse Apollo, I was of course over the moon about this. Those photos in Hitchcock Woods are without a doubt some of my favorites! Stephanie and Hunter then gussied up a bit for the last half of their session and I love the special wine Stephanie had on hand for them to open and share. To say I am excited to see their classic Aiken, South Carolina wedding come to fruition next spring would be an understatement!
I’m pretty excited because these photos are of my good friend Roxanne of Still Co. Roxanne has been shooting weddings alongside me since early 2013, has shot associate weddings for my business, and has just become such a great friend and positive person in my life. Getting her beautiful family in front of my lens this fall was so much fun. The last time we did something like this was a few years ago when Jude was just a little tiny guy (see here and here). We had amazing light the evening we shot and I love so many of these images of she and Trent with their handsome (now bigger!) man Jude.
I’m also excited to announce that starting in 2016, I’ll now be offering family sessions exclusively for past BCP wedding couples. I just love the way all of my awesome couples lives are blossoming together and I’m so pumped to continue to be a part of it :) If you are a former BCP bride and groom interested in anniversary, maternity, family, or newborn photos, shoot me an email so we can talk more :)
Enjoy some of my favorites of the Still family!
What a wonderful morning I had with Alex and William and their handsome black lab Hank. We just dodged the rain and were gifted with beautifully overcast skies and the ruins all to ourselves. Hank was such a well behaved gent and totally hammed it up for me. You guys know I love me a good lab pup and people who love and appreciate labs :)
Alex and William are SO laid back, and it was evident even from our first email exchanges that these two have such a special relationship with their priorities totally in the right place. They are so easy around one another, and as William so simply put it, they really are best friends. They are driven, kind, have a great sense of humor, and appreciate less being more and I love that about them. We had a great time, and I am eagerly looking forward to their Columbia wedding next spring!
