My husband and I have known David for a little over a year now and we met Anna shortly after. They both are members of our church here on James Island and they are a joy to be around! Anyone who meets them would say that their warm personalities, kind smiles, and genuine love is apparent! They are such a kind couple, we hope to get to know them better!
Anna and David met at their college library (USC) and that was the start of their friendship! Within a year after growing their friendship they began dating and then got engaged on September 29th of last year. Their proposal story is the sweetest and so romantic! David set up a beautiful spot on a roof top to ask her the big question. This was NOT any rooftop, but the same one where they had their first date:)! So sweet.
On another note, as a photographer it is scary to offer free sessions or free products. We are scared of being taken advantage of or giving to much time. However, I have found that in the midst of running a business where everything cost something (for me and my clients) it is a breath of fresh air to do something for free! I am able to be more creative on the spot, more relaxed, and not have the pressure that normally accompanies a photo session. I asked Anna and David if they would be up for doing a Couple's Portrait Session downtown Charleston (for free) and they were excited to do it! I usually do my sessions at beaches, parks, and plantations, and I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone, I knew I needed to! This was something I have wanted to do for a while now but was to scared to try! Shooting a session downtown Charleston is not for the faint of heart! The lighting, the people, the busyness, the narrow streets, the lack of parking spots, and not to mention how overwhelming it can be because there are a million beautiful houses and streets to shoot at!! All these were things that kept me in fear of shooting in the city, but thankfully I have done it....and LOVED IT! The Charleston charm, the brick and architecture, the peeking sunlight, and overall southern and romantic feel was well worth it! Anna and David Geurkink were the absolute best couple to shoot on Friday night ! The love and laughs they share were lovely to capture!
Thank you for reading and viewing this blog! If you are interested in an engagement session, I'd love to hear from you!
