Alex and Ashleigh… oh what a delight these two were to photograph! They were so easy and perfect together. And they really wanted their engagements to capture their relationship and the things they love to do together. They love coffee and reading, and with their wedding taking place in gorgeous Savannah, GA, they wanted to take advantage of Fort Mill’s lovely peach orchards in the summer (Fort Mill is Ashleigh’s hometown)! We had an absolute blast capturing these images for this fantastic couple- enjoy a few of our favorites from Alex and Ashleigh’s fun engagement session!
Sometimes, as you’re going about your routine, minding your own business, you get a wonderful surprise in the form of new friends AND clients! Just a few months ago, we decided to jump back into our “grown-up” routine and attend our community group that we’d been a part of through our church for a long time, but had not been to since Avonlea was born. When we arrived, there sat a ridiculously cute and smartly-dressed new couple whom we’d not yet met. In becoming acquainted, we discovered that Adam and Amanda (whom we recognized from our church’s worship band) were engaged and needing to hire a photographer for their wedding less than 6 months away! We gave them our information of course, and also some names of some other photographers to check out in case our work did not fit their style. We’re not gonna lie: as a brand-new mom and dad (probably with baby throw-up on our shirts), Adam and Amanda’s smoldering stylishness intimidated us as we pitched our professional services to them in a very informal and not professional setting 😉 But a couple of days later, they reached out to us! After meeting for coffee it became apparent to all that we would make a great fit. These engagement images were super fun for us to capture, as we’d been dying to shoot atop this roof ever since we took Avonlea to visit Split Second Sound in their new office-space after she was born! The view of the Charlotte skyline from SSS’s roof is spectacular, and made a perfect backdrop for Adam and Amanda’s city-scape vision. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Adam and Amanda’s engagement session!
