I love this couple.
He’s in the armed forces and was stationed far, far away from his love. She’s here in Columbia (for now). I’m pretty sure she booked me for the wedding before he had officially proposed.
But the wedding was definitely on. Venues were secured. The ring had been purchased. The bride’s mom picked out the ring, under very specific instructions from the groom…and she kept it secret until it was time for the proposal.
And the bride basically knew when the proposal will take place. The groom was scheduled to be in town for a very short window of time this summer while he was home on leave. Because of that, we had just a handful of dates to work with for their engagement session.
Luckily, we had amazing weather for this July engagement session. The light downtown that afternoon was fun to work with. And they were one of the cutest, loving couples I’ve worked with.
I loved everything about this engagement session:
Seriously?? How cute are they??
You are gorgeous, Payton.
We ran across this sign downtown and I made them pose in front of a window full of people. But it was too perfect! And we were very fast.
I love me a couple that will jump on cue. Love.
We found one tree downtown—ONE. And it was pure perfection.
He and mom did a great job on the ring, right?
Okay, I guess we found two trees. Loving the downtown trees.
Hey, so we’re almost done but before we go, I’m going to lay down in the bus station driveway and you guys stand over there and look at each other adoringly, mkay? Killed it.
