I was so excited when Brieann and Matt asked to schedule a downtown, winter engagement session! Though they will have a Columbia, SC wedding, we planned their engagement session for about 30 minutes away in Downtown Newberry, SC. Brieann graduated from Newberry College and they wanted a downtown feel, so the location was ideal. The Christmas trees and the lights on Main Street near the Opera House made for the PERFECT backdrop for an engagement session!
We met at Wells Japanese Garden for some photos with their adorable Corgi. He was not feeling the photos for the most part, but we still included him in as many as he would have! Thank goodness for cool weather and helpers when your pet needs to take a break during the rest of the photos!
As the sun set and the garden got darker, we headed into Downtown Newberry for the rest of their session. Let me just say, I LOVE downtown settings for sessions because of the lights, architecture, and unique industrial features found in most every downtown. Newberry’s and Columbia’s Main Streets are no exception to this rule.
Clearly, the light in town was BEYOND gorgeous (this is why I always schedule for a particular time of evening and don’t like to stray far from those times), but as the sun set even more, we headed towards the Main Street Lights. This is where the magic really happened (in my humble opinion)!
Brieann and Matt, thank you so much for coming to Newberry, SC for your engagement session! I am SO EXCITED for your Fall wedding in Columbia, SC next October!
