We love Columbia. With the Main Street area booming again, it's such a great place to explore and shoot. Ashlee and Mo wanted a modern looking engagement session, and Main Street was the perfect spot. What made Main even more magical was deciding to shoot a little later in the day to get some beautiful blue hour. We hope you enjoy a few of our favorites!

We love bikes. We love engagement sessions. We love bikes in engagement sessions. We love Christy and Andrew's engagement session. They were such a sweet and fun couple! The Lincoln street tunnel was a perfect spot for our bike engagement session with them. Open space to ride, do crazy things, all in the comfort of a mostly deserted tunnel. Our time with them was a blast which made it hard to choose favorites for this post. The images from the State House were so much fun, and we loved Christy and Andrews chemistry together. Yes we have our tricks, we can work with anyone, but when the couple can be comfortable with each other and have a good time that's when magic happens. So that's my top tip for today. Have fun and be comfortable!
One of the first things Lauren and Bryan said to us at their session was simply "Just tell us what to do." After having done quite a few engagement sessions, comments like this give me such a tickle. It reminds us that more often than not, this is their first time. Most people have never been photographed like this before and we love to help our couples every step of the way. All this is to say (this is to all the brides and grooms out there) don't worry. Photographers are here to help and guide you. We always work with you for your session. We don't expect couples to have modeling experience. If we expect anything its for you to relax and have fun. With that in mind, here are a few of our favorites from our very fun, very relaxed session with Lauren and Bryan (you guys did great by the way!).
These boots were made for....oh wait. I didn't wear boots. Well, Meghan did and good for her. While this was a gorgeous location, it wasn't all warm and fuzzy. Some of our spots while phenomenal for light, background, and overall gorgeousness, it seems the prettier the place, the harsher it is :) Thank goodness we are always willing to take one for the team, and always have clients who are up for anything. Congratulations Meghan and Charles!
When Sera told us she was interested in doing their engagement photos at the library, we were instantly excited. It seemed so romantic. Books, pathways, shelves, and red umbrellas fill the space of the Richland County library. We had a blast working with them!
