Engagements, Proposals, and Bachelorettes – A 2018 Review

Engagements, Proposals, and Bachelorettes 

A 2018 Review

Looking back on a whole year’s worth of photos is always one of my favorite things to do. It’s overwhelming, but in such a good way! I always have to make sure I’m at my house when I’m working on my review, because I have such a huge grin on my face the whole time that people might think I’m crazy ;) I love looking back on all the amazing couples I’ve worked with, and seeing the emotions from all the sessions. The tears at the proposals, the heartfelt hugs and excitement at engagement sessions, and the goofy giggly group of friends at a bachelorette. Even after doing this job for years, I still have to stop sometimes and remind myself what an amazing thing it is that I get to document life.

This year, I’m going to break up my review into 5 days. There’s just way too many photos to fit into one post! So first up is engagements, proposals, bachelorettes, and a senior session! Check back each day this week for more 2018 photographs!

Anna & Brooks | A Charleston Proposal

A Charleston Proposal

Anna & Brooks
I love a good proposal. I talked with Brooks to plan out his proposal a few months beforehand, and I loved how intentional he was about making it the perfect proposal for Anna. I was photographing Anna’s cousin’s wedding later that spring, and so Brooks had an idea. He asked Madeline if she would tell Anna that she wanted some family photos done before the wedding to gift to her aunt. Anna didn’t think anything of it, because this sounded like something Madeline would do! So after Madeline’s dress fitting (another excuse to get them dressed all nice!) they met me down at the park and I pretended like this was completely normal to take family photos even before the wedding :) Brooks walked up (you can see him camped out in the background! Love it!) and tapped Anna on the shoulder. I’m not quite sure if she even knew what was happening right away. He got down on one knee, and Anna started crying. I loved that even as we were walking around downtown afterwards, Anna would just randomly break into happy tears. Brooks, ya did good!
