On this Friday 2 days before Mother Day, as I am writing and posting this blog for my clients Tiffany & Matt, back a couple of weeks ago, I met them for their engagement session in downtown Charleston, Sc. The morning session temperature was cool and a perfect lit day. While we had the great opportunity to go to various location, our last one was the best at 95 Broad Street, thanks to my great friends at Luxury Simplified, this Mansion has such a great terracotta color on the exterior of the building, the interior, is exquisite, with wooden rustic look. I am so happy with my artistry, couple, locations, that this engagement session just came out perfect. Please enjoy my art:
Here from Tiffany is how they met and became one.
We were introduced through a mutual friend after a course of unusual events. I came to my fiance’s hometown as a result of taking a teaching job but was in a roundabout way seeing someone at the time. My fiancé explained to me that he saw me from across the room at a school basketball game and intended to introduce himself in order to meet me. Realizing that I was apparently involved with someone already, he left it to a “no chance opportunity”. Little did he know that just a few weeks later things would quite interestingly change and we would become acquainted anyway. I was taken by surprise with my fiance’s fun-loving and gentlemanly personality and was very quickly attracted to him. We found ourselves spending more time together sitting together at basketball games and spending time with our friend the “match maker” and his family. A month later we started dating on February 9th, 2012.
Two years after being together, February 10th, 2014 he proposed the day after our two year anniversary at the Swan Lake Iris gardens in Sumter. It was a beautiful spring day and the trees were in full bloom. During our dating relationship, he took me to the lake often and we enjoyed making many great memories at several different places in the park. So, he sent me on a scavenger hunt finding sweet notes that led me to our favorite place in the park at the end of a dock where on the railing was taped a single red rose and a note that said “I love you! Will you…” I turned around and he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand.
We can hardly wait to share in a future together and to build our own family. I can’t wait to marry my best friend and soulmate, the one who through God’s great an awesome design completes me in every possible way, like a puzzle piece that fits together perfectly. Words cannot express how thankful I am that God saw fit to put two broken and flawed vessels together purely for His honor and glory. We are so blessed and we hope through our marriage to display the same kind of love that our Heavenly Father showed us when he sacrificed His only begotten son so that we could have eternal life.
We also want to say a special thanks to Michel Berda for photographing our engagement session and for all the fun we had in doing so, and we also look forward to him doing the same for our wedding day so that we have some great documentation of what will be a day to remember for a lifetime!
