Ashley & Eugene's Engagement Session at Brick Pond Park


Summertime in Georgia is hot! Before any engagement shoot I like to go over the many options with my clients including locations, themes, and what they want out of an engagement session. I seek to carry out their vision with my distinctive IMP style as I help tell the story of this new chapter in their lives with photographs.

Ashley & Eugene met in high school and were the best of friends before they fell in love with each other. For location, they choose the nature-filled Brick Pond Park in North Augsta, SC. I photograph many sessions here and I believe my clients fall in love with the sweeping natural vistas that Brick Pond Park offers.

Because it’s June and temperatures hit the high 90s before noon, I recommended we start our session in the morning. I suggested starting at 8am or 9am, but that proved to not be early enough. By 9:30am on the day of our shoot, temperatures had already reached the mid 80s and we felt the unrelenting heat and humidity as it continued to build. This unfortunately cut our engagement shoot short. Even with the short amount of time, I believe I captured the love and passion Ashley and Eugene have for each other. Some couples have trouble warming up to having a camera nearby while staring deep into each others' eyes, but not Ashley & Eugene! From the moment I asked them to pose, they shared a view into their warmth and love for each other as if the camera wasn’t there at all. I may have even had to pry them apart to keep our shoot going --! I love giving my clients the best experience possible and hope they will enjoy their images from a hot but beautiful morning. I look forward to capturing their wedding in November!
