Mason and Blair were a dream to work with! Mason had contacted me about photographing a surprise proposal and engagement session while he and Blair visited Charleston. They are from Dallas and were coming to spend the weekend here. They planned to visit two plantations on Thursday, one of which, I was going to be at and photograph the proposal! The tricky and unique part of this was that the couple had never here before and so Mason needed my help to find the perfect spot for the proposal. We also had to time it perfectly and meet at the right spot! Right when I arrived the Middleton Place I noticed we got there at the same time (hahah, I was worried about that!) and I immediately turned myself around and took up some time before following them in. I saw them a few different times while trying to find a beautiful spot (which there were tons) and just kept pretending I was a photographing the landscape and scenery. I texted Mason where to go and he found a lovely spot under the large Oak by the water. I was farther back taking photos of buildings and trees and watching the signal for Mason to start hugging Blair before he dropped to his knee! Mason and Blair have known each other for several years and went to the same college but it was after college they started dating! It was a joy to photograph the next season in their relationship!
We did part of the session at Middleton Place and then finished downtown Charleston! It was so sweet for the the engagement session to be during and right after the proposal. The newness of being engaged, the exciting thoughts about the future, the renewed love and passion for one another, soon to be a mr &mrs, are just a few reasons an engagement session right after the proposal is a great idea! Mason and Blair were so easy to photograph as they laughed and smiled the entire time, it was perfect! They made my job easy! So glad this Texas couple came to town and that I was able to capture these special moments for them!!
