We had the wonderful pleasure of photographing Kelsie and Bradley’s chilly engagement session this past weekend at the Poinsett Bridge in Traveler’s Rest, SC! With the bride and groom-to-be located in the Greenville area, and with us coming from Charlotte, this session was our first time meeting in-person. We had skyped and emailed, of course. But it was our first opportunity to see how Kelsie and Bradley interact as a couple, and we were thrilled to spend the early evening hour capturing just that! These two were so easy together, so fun-loving and laid-back. It didn’t surprise us, knowing that they’ve grown up together since they were little. We had a fabulous time capturing their love, and hope you enjoy a few of our favorites on the blog today!
I think Geoff and Marissa’s engagements are the perfect example of why it’s important to do an engagement session with your wedding photographer. If you can believe it, these two were actually nervous about looking natural in their images! You wouldn’t suspect, to look at the photos now. I mean, look at these two!
They may have been hesitant at first, but as we walked around the gorgeous Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in all it’s summer beauty and gave them some simple direction, it became clear that Geoff and Marissa were going to knock these images out of the park! And as soon as the bride and groom to be saw their sneak peeks, they realized we were right all along, all of those times we said “feels weird, looks great!” as we posed them for these images, hehe… And now, they can go into their May 2016 wedding completely confident that they will look fabulous in their wedding images!
We had a great time getting to know them during the session, laughing and settling nerves. And we’ll never complain to have to shoot in the beautiful garden where we said our own vows 6 1/2 years ago. It’s always a treat to shoot at Daniel Stowe!
Enjoy some of our favorites of Geoff and Marissa from their engagement session!
