jade & jovan engagement

First engagement session of the year!!! Attractive couple, great energy and so much creativity! I’m super excited for this wedding in July! My team and I will be able to capture a unique wedding after hearing all of their plans. This engagement session started near the apartment of the engaged couple. With the eye of Dr. Jade and cooperation of Jovan we easily made it happen…literally a few steps outside of the home. Talk about not having to go far. The first outfit, all black, served as a more formal approach to the couple. We went to an opening of tall wheat looking grass nearby and some shots using teh bamboo canes as a background. Also close by was a body of water from the nearby river.  Some tall oaks with Spanish moss helped create a spot for more pictures before looking at the water itself.                                                                                                                                                                           After a misty, gloomy early morning, it really ended up being a very pretty day. Perfect for an outfit change. And that’s what they did. Whites and blues of denim created the second look as we traveled to the popular Riverfront Park. Near the famous red door we started with some creative ways to use the huge water pipe. A little bit of athleticism, creativity, posing and a couple of laughs later, we used the red door, amphitheater, steps and benches to finish our session. Congratulations and super excited about July!!!                                                                                                                                                     Want images like these of your own session?

{Melanie & Emmanuel} | Engaged!!! | Columbia, SC

Melanie and Emmanuel was a great couple to photograph. I met them through a friend who showed them some of my work. A few calls and emails later and we met up in Columbia’s Vista area for their engagement session. Now, I started a work out plan (Body Beast) so i could bulk up like Mr. Emmanuel…It’s not working. But Melanie and Emmanuel were to well dressed, loving individuals and the photo-shoot could not have went more smooth. Awesome weather, great locations and high expectations. Take a look…

{Engaged!!!} | Shaun & Stephanie | Columbia, SC


Stephanie and Shaun’s engagement session has been one I have been waiting for. For 2013, I was determined to try some new stuff. Cameras, video, workflow, business practices, etc. I was hoping to find a young, attractive couple early during the year to really boost some of the new things I wanted to do and accomplish this wedding season. Enter the high energy, combination of good looks and brains, professional diva Stephanie, and her fiancee, the Professor Shaun Mathis. Shaun and I met when he told me of his vision for his Proposal. I was blown away then as it reminded me of the time period I learned I could have an emotional connection through pictures (The Ritz Carlton Proposal – Ross Oscar Knight). Stephanie and I brainstormed about what she and Shaun wanted in their engagement session. We wrote some things down, developed it, followed up and despite some weather, had a great time. Take a look…
