At the end of Matt & Ashley’s engagement session, Matt says “Wow, it’s a lot of work to be photogenic for 7 hours, but we had so much fun”. It made me laugh 🙂 What a perfect way to spend Labor day! Matt & Ashley both graduated from Clemson, so the first part of the session started at the football stadium. Doug Kingsmore is Ashley’s grandfather and the baseball stadium was named after him. Taking photos there was a must. The entire e-session could have been done at Clemson as the campus is so beautiful, however the State Fair was next on our list and we had to get there before sunset to get pictures both before and after the sun went down. When people at the fair see two photographers carrying large cameras taking pictures of a beautiful couple it’s assumed that we are the news following them around. We heard “Will these be on the news or in the newspaper?” a good bit. But interacting with people around us is part of the fun experience. I love doing these long engagement sessions because it is such a perfect way for me to get to know my clients before the big day.
Thank you for such a fun day Matt & Ashley! You make an amazing couple.
