Russell + Nichole | Sesquicentennial State Park Engagement Session in Columbia, SC

Dec 6, 2016


share post

Engagement sessions are always my favorite. Photographing two people in love is always so neat. Russell and Nichole were especially fun to photograph because they were so laid back and seemed so comfortable the whole time. It’s always my goal to make couples feel comfortable in front of the camera and to really help them express who they are in the short time we have together, and these two made it easy. They were up for all of my suggestions (and rocked them, I might add…see the awesome “dip” photo below), and just laughed and talked the whole time.

These two were a perfect example of why I love photography so much—it is so exhilarating and uplifting to be around love all the time. Love, like you see pouring from these two in the photos below, is so life-giving. Thank you, Russell and Nichole, for letting me photograph you and share in such sweet moments with you. I’m so excited for your wedding next year. I know it’s going to be a good one!

Enjoy some of my favorites. (:
