They’re the adventurous type… The type who reach out to an acquaintance on the chance there might be something there. The type who go on long hikes for their first date and end up spending the entire day together. The type who take a trip to Italy and get engaged overlooking Lago Di Garda in northern Italy. The type who will have a destination wedding in the mountains of South Carolina and then honeymoon on the other side of the world!
They first met when they were in a wedding together 5 years ago. Her best friend was getting married to his cousin and although the timing wasn’t right, it was what led to them meeting up again 2 years later when everything was ready to fall into place. He reached out to her on Facebook and they started talking again. After a first date, he hurt his ankle and posted a question about it, to which she quickly responded and reminded him that she’s a physical therapist. While it may have been a good excuse to see him again so soon, it all worked out because they’ve been inseparable ever since!
These two were down from Chicago last weekend tying up some wedding details before their big day next month and thankfully it worked out for us to do their engagement session early Saturday morning! The sun never really seemed to poke out, but it was still beautiful, especially when Susie smiled. Her face actually lights up when she’s with Luke and I loved spending the morning with them!
A sunrise engagement session just isn’t complete without coffee in hand.
Susie, you are a timeless beauty.
I know this was on the blog earlier this week, but it’s my favorite!
You wouldn’t believe the number of people that kept passing us on the bridge! Thankfully these two are very patient and it was worth waiting out the crowd at some points and other times just adjusting my angle to get some of these shots.
When a couple is looking at each other like this, you can bet anything I’m smiling with them behind my camera :-)
Luke lived in Greenville for a time and would walk his dog around this lake often… so it was the perfect spot to capture some of their adventurous side and to wrap up our morning.
