Sophia & Rhett
An Engagement Session at Old Sheldon Church Ruins
I first met Rhett when he was a groomsman in Alyssa and Garrett’s wedding last spring. I met Sophia separately when I was taking a photo outside the American Theatre for her company. And then I finally met the two together at Home Team BBQ on a rainy weekend (thinking back I’m pretty sure it was a few days before the epic flood in October!) I liked them both separately, and I liked them just as much as a couple! I am so excited to photograph their wedding this fall. Rhett is from Beaufort, South Carolina, and so when it came to their engagement photos, Sophia and Rhett thought it would be meaningful to them if they could take photos both in Beaufort and Charleston. They had fallen in love with the Old Sheldon Church Ruins outside of Beaufort, and had even looked at it as a location for their wedding. While they chose to get married in Charleston instead, they decided that the church ruins would make a beautiful location for their engagement photos. And they were so right! The combination of the brick and the soft spanish moss and oak trees created such a romantic feel. And Sophia’s choice of an off-white lacy dress was the perfect accent. We then drove back to Charleston to take some photos at their new home with their pups. It’s always an adventure when you add pups into the session, but these two did a great job. I love all the photos with their tongues hanging out :)
I LOVE this one!! But for real though with those brown eyes?! I hope Rhett sings Brown Eyed Girl to Sophia all the time :) I love these pups. They had so much energy!Tongues :)Seriously so many tongues.And again.
Thank you to Urban Nirvana for making Sophia’s hair and makeup so flawless and gorgeous!
