I almost lost my engagement ring diamond today. And it was SCARY!! I was putting away dishes and felt a tug at it when putting down a pan. I looked, and there were 4 prongs staring back at me with NO DIAMOND. I got on my hands and knees looking all around where I was standing, and just couldn’t find it. I called Edward in tears, and he assured me it was alright since we had ring insurance! After I gave up, I closed the bottom cabinet I had been looking in and there it was on top of the door!! I’m sharing this to remind you guys to GET RING INSURANCE!!! Girls, send this your guy!! And now I get to walk around with a gorgeous silicone band while they fix my engagement ring and the loose diamond on my wedding band🙈! . Has anyone else had a close call with this??
A picnic in the park? Yes please!! Cynthia & Matthew braved the 90 degree heat with their falls park engagement session, and it was so worth it!! I photographed them FOUR years ago, and what a joy to get to see them again!! And I LOVE that this one will hang on their living room wall for these two and all their guests to enjoy! I’m obsessed with all the beautiful options our downtown offers! #christarenephotography
It brings me to tears to think of how blessed I am to walk through seasons with my couples. Jenna & Brandon’s wedding day was beautiful and doesn’t feel at all like it was 3 years ago. I remember the love they showed each other, me and everyone else. And I can’t help but just know they’re going to be incredible parents, and their little girl is going to be SO loved. What a precious gift to capture this time of anticipation right before baby girl comes. . Tonight I get to have them over onto our home, make them lattes (don’t worry, I’ve been practicing😉), and show them their images for the first time! How beautiful is Jenna in her @bhldn dress?? #christarenephotography
He hates cheese. My favorite Italian dish is chicken fettuccine. Smothered in cheese of course! Thank goodness tonight is date night! He’s laid back and easy going. I’m a liiiiiitle type A (lol) and have a hard time sitting still. He makes sure each day is enjoyed and treasured. I often forget to enjoy the present and get too caught up in the next thing. On paper, there’s so many things that are different about us. Yet God brought us together and we’ve spent the last 11 months through ups and downs figuring out how to do life together. And it’s such a gift. I’m so thankful for my husband. Anyone else picky about certain foods like we are??
Hand in hand walking the coast of Charleston. Does it get any better?! I love this city full of southern charm, pastel buildings, beautiful coastlines, the best seafood, and endless photo spots! What’s your favorite place to stop in Charleston (seafood, coffee, ice cream, shopping.... anything!)! .
