Sarah + Zach | A Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens Engagement Session

From the moment she saw him at a swing dancing class, she knew there was something about him.  Plus, she thought he was really cute!  They slowly got to know each other through swing dancing and when he finally asked her out a year and a half after they first met, she we SO nervous.  But as they continued to see each other, the more he pursued her, the more at peace she felt.

He has an easy going personality and from the moment you meet him, you can tell that he genuinely cares about anyone God brings across his path.  And Sarah is no exception to that… in fact, it’s obvious in the way he looks at her, holds her, and even dances with her that she is the most important person to him on this earth.  And capturing a love like that makes my job extremely easy.

I met these two on a warm South Carolina evening at the Riverbanks Zoo.  Sarah’s family is from Columbia and has been visiting this zoo for as long as she can remember!  I’ve only been there once, so whether it’s been added since I last visited or I just didn’t know about it, we ventured all the way back into the zoo’s botanical gardens… and y’all.  Just wow.  It’s SO beautiful!  I loved my time with Sarah and Zach and am excited to introduce you to them through some of my favorites from their session :-)

Their love, laughter and that light were a perfect trio!


And you better believe I asked them to put their swing dancing skills to use ;-)

I think I could have spent as much time photographing the flora and fauna as I did photographing Sarah and Zach!

This turned out to be one of my favorites of them!

We tried several locations and shots with these fountains and finally found THE spot with them.  I love this!
