I woke up to some really great news today…something that started my day off with a smile. I was notified that this photograph was chosen as one of the winners in this year’s contest at The Westin Poinsett downtown Greenville. A big congratulations to the other photographers who had images chosen. There are a total of 12 that will be proudly displayed in their hallway for others to see. It’s an honor and I am really thankful!!

Every morning I sit down at my computer with a cup of coffee and check email and of course…Facebook :)  I saw that there were a few messages in my Facebook inbox so I clicked to read them.  One of them was from my niece Heather…she got engaged and I get to be her photographer!  Super big smile!  I have heard so many great things about Dylan but we never met until the engagement session.  So not only was I in the midst of having a lot of fun on Heather & Dylan’s engagement session, but I was asking him questions here and there and observing how he was with Heather.  I must say that I am thrilled!!  Dylan is so wonderful and I can see that he loves Heather immensely.  They are a great match.

I LOVE what they chose to wear!  It was perfect for the downtown setting.  I definitely have some of my favorite and most requested shots from downtown, but it is always fun to mix things up try out a few new locations.  So we walked around a good bit and tried to stay as cool as possible in the crazy heat.  When I have a good bit of time one-on-one with a couple like I do on engagement sessions, I like to capture a wide variety of moments.  The posed/more directed poses are a must for sure, but it is also a must to capture those moments of laughing, hugging, looking at each other and of course a few kisses.   The reason that I consider these a must too is because I want them to look back 10…20 years from now and remember how they felt and not just what they looked like.

Thank you Heather & Dylan for a super awesome afternoon!
