Hello everyone, and happy New Year! I cannot believe it’s already February, incredible how time flies! I’m delighted to begin 2017 by sharing a bit about my recent engagement session with Brooke and Brad. These two were so warm and relaxed, an absolute pleasure to photograph! I got to watch them share so many beautiful moments. Several times they started giggling just looking at each other, which was really fun and wonderful to see!
Brooke and Brad met through mutual friends at the end of their freshman year at the University of South Carolina. Halfway through sophomore year, they were a bundle! Hehehe And the story of Brad’s proposal is too sweet not to share! The two were strolling through the USC campus on their way to a baseball game, when Brooke got a call from one of the friends they were going to meet. It was just a heads-up, some construction on campus meant they would have to detour through the historic horseshoe. But halfway across the horseshoe, Brad got down on one knee and asked Brooke to marry him! When she looked up, Brooke saw friends and family appearing all around the horseshoe, including their pup Maverick, who was supposed to be at home in Charlotte! Such an incredibly sweet surprise!!
Our session took place at Carrigan Farms in Moorseville, NC. If you’re not familiar with this property, go visit! The grounds are absolutely breathtaking, with so many different settings for photos. Brooke’s stunning red dress was an elegant pop of color against the gorgeous scenery. And need I say I fell in love with Maverick? Adorable!!! Golden Retrievers are the best! Although I have to admit I’m biased, my fur-baby Ronon is a Golden too! Below is a sneak peek of their stunning Carrigan Farms engagement photos! I cannot wait for their wedding!
