There’s so much to say, I don’t even know where to begin! The beginning I suppose. I had the pleasure of meeting Joshua and Jennifer during her birthday portraits over a year ago. That portrait session was definitely my most eventful session to date. We began photographing on the sun deck of a beautiful abandoned building only to be escorted off the premises by the police for trespassing– OOPS!! Then we made a mad dash to the park to pop some champagne for photos -only to be interrupted by a thunderstorm! These two were just the sweetest and most gracious about these factors out of my control. I felt awful though, sure I’d never hear from them again after quite the eventful evening! When Jennifer and Joshua kept in touch saying they found their forever photographer, it melted my heart. Then they did it all over again when they asked me to be their photographer for the moment they say “I do” to forever with each other! Every minute with these two is a treasure. Congratulations Joshua and Jennifer on your engagement! October 2020 cannot come soon enough!!!




All my love,


Joshua + Jennifer’s Elegant Engagement in Aiken, SC
