finding joy, and living life to the fullest. I'm so glad you're here, and hope you enjoy your stay!
For Emily and Jared’s engagement session, we switched locations to using Clemson at the last minute, and I am SO thankful that we did! I was a little nervous because these two wanted fall colors for their session. The leaves around the location we were going to use were all gone, so I knew going to Clemson was a gamble since we had no idea what campus looked like. It could be leafless like Greer, but boy, did we find color!! Not only did we get the aesthetic they wanted, but we were also able to revisit a lot of meaningful locations for their relationship. They met at Clemson, Jared asked Emily to be his girlfriend at Cooper Library, and they had one of their first dates in the Botanical Gardens. I’m all for including sentimental value for your photos!
I had the best time with these two exploring my alma mater’s ever-changing campus, and learning more about their relationship. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next November! Enjoy some of my favorites from their colorful Clemson engagement.
I had never ventured over to this side of the Gardens, but I immediately fell in love with these wispy grasses. Emily’s bright blue dress just pops off this soft background!
I saw this tree when we entered the Botanical Gardens, and knew it would be perfect. It was on the side of a busy road, but these two were totally up for the challenge…and spectators with their honking horns!
I love when clients want to include special personal touches in their photos. This last one of their hands is the sign language symbol for “I love you”. Whenever Emily or Jared sense the other one is stressed or needs comfort, or even just as a daily reminder, they use that symbol without having to say any words. Including her beautiful diamond on the front is just the icing on the cake for this sweet sentiment!
