Kara and Jordan contacted me towards the end of last year about their Columbia, SC wedding and we quickly realized we were a great fit. In chatting with them about engagement portraits, they mentioned their love of Greenville — a love that I also share! We planned their session for late winter, right before spring arrived, when the evening light was still cool, and the days still short.
The shadows were perfect on the road between Falls Park and the SC Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities (my alma mater!), and I couldn’t wait to show them the beautiful “Medusa tree” on the edge of the park.
There are so many great features at Falls Park, and we loved chatting and laughing throughout Kara and Jordan’s session. The little waterfall near the edge of the park was bathed in gorgeous light, and as we shot there, Jordan and Kara told me that this is actually where he proposed! Perfect!
Of course, we had to spend some time in front of the large waterfall on the Reedy River which gives Falls Park its name!
I love when a cheesy joke or two can take a sweet moment to a moment of shared laughter.
After a quick change into a Springtime-inspired wardrobe, we headed into the downtown area for more portraits. I couldn’t pass up this beautiful fountain and reflection in the sunset.
I love the architecture in this venue by Larkin’s By the River. What a great way to frame a couple in love!
As you all know from my last post, I love when a tree curves perfectly to frame a couple.
Everything in this image makes me happy. The sunset hit downtown at the perfect angle to turn the Peace Center windows into mirrors for this reflection shot.
That’s not a flaw in the background of this image, it’s the beautiful water feature found behind Larkin’s By The River in Greenville!
There is always some silliness and laughter during sessions with Melissa Brewer Photography!
As we headed further into Downtown Greenville, there was no shortage of amazing locations for more portraits. I love the bokeh from the tree lights and water fountain in the background of this image.
I love the lights from passing cars and street lights in Downtown Greenville for these next few engagement photos!
As you can clearly see, Jordan and Kara had a great time during this engagement session! It was definitely worth the drive from Columbia, SC to spend the day in Greenville.
Thank you, Kara and Jordan, for suggesting Downtown Greenville for your engagement session! I will make that drive from Columbia anytime!
