Samara contacted me months ago to schedule an engagement session. First, it was such a joy to hear from her, as I've known her for years, since she was cheering on the BHS sidelines under the Friday night lights. Then she told me that her fiance, Richard, is a Marine! Ooh rah! So I was thrilled - happy for both of them, and glad to connect with a fellow Devil Dog.
The scheduled date arrived, and so did torrential rains. Not so great for a beautiful Lowcountry session. So we postponed until a date that was yet to be determined. Eventually Richard got word of his pre-deployment leave, and so we set a new date. It turned out to be a beautiful fall day in Bluffton!
We started the session with some shots that highlight Richard in his dress blues, the sharpest uniform on the face of the earth (no bias).
We also highlighted some key details.
Don't they look awesome! What a gorgeous couple. It was easy to take pretty pictures of these two. :) So then Richard got comfortable and we took some more casual shots, taking advantage of the beautiful Lowcountry scenery.
It was so much fun to see this bright young couple and the promising future ahead of them. Richard has some obligations ahead of them, as you can imaging, and Samara is embarking on a new path herself, so the wedding isn't until 2016. In the meantime, we'll be keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. Congratulations, best wishes, and Semper Fi!
