True story: engaged couples are the best. I absolutely love capturing the special season right before "I do." There is so much excitement in the air and it always blows me away that people invite me into this season of their lives!
Erin's sister is one of my best friends, so I was extra excited to get to work with them! She and Derrik had so much fun throughout the session, and I am so thankful they didn't think I was nuts when I was laying on the ground, climbing in trees, or hiding in bushes to get the right shot...or at least they didn't mention they thought it was weird! They brought along a few props for their save the date picture, but I always keep the official save the date shot a secret on the blog. These are a few of my favorites from their Clemson SC session!
For the second half of their session, Erin and Derrik quickly changed into what I thought was just going to be a more casual outfit. Then they walked out in football jerseys...for the state's biggest rivaling teams. Now, my husband is a die-hard Carolina fan...and I am a die-hard Nikon fan, book fan, art fan. Not a sports fan, to his great disappointment. What I've gathered in my marriage is that fans take their teams very seriously, so it took me several minutes to stop my laughter about these photos each time we made it through a set. I can only imagine how Saturdays in football season will look at their house!
I love capturing the personalities of my clients. It's not always perfect poses and composed smiles. In fact, that's very rarely what I'm all about. I think you'll agree that Erin & Derrik's personalities are very visible in their engagement photos, which is exactly how I love my sessions to be!
