So I’m siting at Clemson Botanical Gardens waiting for my couple whom I’ve never met to arrive for their engagement session, & I see this petite blonde angel in a blue dress with an all-American, square-jawed handsome guy & my brain starts the photographer’s mantra – “Please let this be them, please let this be them.” 🙂 Lo & behold the mantra worked & I met Whitney & Colton for the first time. As we walked to our first shooting location I probably seemed like some kind of Lucy Loosing It because I was practically babbling with excitement…(got to learn to maintain, where’s your poker face, girl?!) I did learn that Whitney & Colton have been dating since she was 14 (!!!) and now, 9 years later, they will soon be man & wife. That is true love.
We shot a while in the humid loveliness of the gardens (what good sports they were!), then moved to the Clemson campus. On the way I spotted this small field of sunflowers & begged Whitney & Colton to let me grab a couple of shots there when we finished on campus, which they agreed to do. I’d say it all worked out pretty darn well 🙂
