I have known Olivia since high school, so needless to say when I got her message about engagement pictures I was pretty excited. Originally, Olivia and Will were planning on using the photographer that was recommended at their (beach!!) venue, and of course I understood that it would be easier that way for them. Even though secretly I was wanting to shoot a beach wedding... (Who doesn't?!).
I shot their engagement pictures on the campus of UNCC, where they first met. At first, I was a bit uncertain, as it is a different location than I am used to shooting at, but after seeing these images I may just have to shoot there again! I loved that we were able to use the gardens on campus, as well, as the actual campus buildings where they both went to classes. I love it when couples choose a location that is special for the two of them.
Fast forward A few weeks and Olivia reached back out.
You guessed it.. I am now joining Olivia and will at their beach wedding this July! I can't wait to capture such special memories for a sweet friend.
Congratulations Olivia and Will!
