James & Katrina's Engagement Session

A few weeks ago I had the honor of capturing the engagement session for James & Katrina featuring their daughter Serenity.  They both decided on having the session at Pendleton King Park in Augusta, GA.  I had shot an engagement session there before, but I had never notice the lovely garden there that is just perfect for taking photos!  I really love working with couples prior to their big wedding day.  It gives me an opportunity to not only get to know them better but work with them and gain their trust and confidence.

As we began conversing and walking to our first shot location I asked Katrina where her engagement ring was?  The next few moments were of utter shock as Katrina had realized she had forgotten to put on her engagement ring and had accidentally left it home.  I really care about giving the best images and care to my clients.  So I told her I would wait for her to go back home and get her engagement ring.  In the meantime, I would warm up my photo taking skills on her youngest sister (who was there to chaperon) and daughter.  When Katrina came back we were ready to go.  The rest of the engagement shoot was fun and relaxing.  James & Katrina were really fun to be around and had no objections trying out any photo ideas I might have had whether they worked out or not.

I can’t wait for September when I capture their wedding at The Red Oak Manor in Harlem, GA.  In the meantime, check out a few images from their engagement session! 

Chris & Jen At Hammonds Ferry

Hello all,

I finally got to have a photoshoot at the beautiful location of Hammonds Ferry in North Augusta with Chris and Jen.  Whenever a client books a session with me I truly want to give them a unique experience.  I always suggest a new location because not only does it provide my client with a different scenic backdrop, but it always sparks my creativity and forces me to think of new ideas.  I was very pleased that Chris and Jen wanted to capture their photos at Hammonds Ferry and I believe my creativity came out in full swing with their images.  Chris & Jen were a pleasure to be around.  They were willing to try anything I asked of them, no matter how silly it may have seemed.  They completely trusted my judgement and I believe it shows in the images.  If you're ever in Hammonds Ferry for a photoshoot go grab some dinner at Manuel's Bread Cafe or Larder, thank me later!  Without further Ado.....here are some of the images we captured that day!
