Engaged: Sarah and Matt

Sarah and Matt are the kind of couple that just make you smile. You can tell that they are the best of friends and enjoy spending time together…and isn’t that what it’s all about? For their engagement session they chose Pawley’s island as Sarah’s family owns homes there and it is where she spent her childhood summers and the site of her upcoming wedding. We started the shoot at the “Hammock Shops” to take advantage of the greenery and brick paths.

As wedding photographers we hear amazing proposal stories and Matt’s has to be one of our favorites. Every year around Christmas he creates a calendar for Sarah chronicling their year together. Each month has a different photo of the couple. But this year the calendar included a special photograph that Sarah had never seen… it was a photo of her engagement ring!

[…] Sarah’s bridals were a joy to shoot. We almost forgot we were working as we joked and talked with the Bride and her sister-in law Cyn. (A fellow wedding photographer!) Sarah was a classic and beautiful Bride. She was calm and relaxed during the shoot and even did her hair and make-up herself! Sarah’s shoot has a very low-country Southern feel and Litchfield Plantation provided the most idyllic backdrop a girl could ask for with Spanish moss, lush marsh and bright blue skies. […]
