Natalie’s favorite movie is the Notebook. While planning for her engagement session she wanted to incorporate the movie without copying it – to make her own “notebook” so to speak. We shot half of the session over at Cypress gardens which was home to one of the scenes in the movie and then because she and Andrew are such nature lovers, went out to Edisto Island and finished the session at Boneyard beach on an incredibly hot day.
Natalie choose 3 outfits, with 2 of the gowns from designer Joanna August. A peach dress at Cypress gardens and lilac for the beach. They are getting married at Charleston Tea Plantation this September with the theme “Antebellum with an edge”……
The canoe portion of the session really speaks of who they are – Andrew recently canoed the Edisto river over 3 days and covered over 80 miles. They both love the beach and while photographing on boneyard beach, Andrew found quite a few shark teeth.
It was sooooo hot on the beach (105 that day) and bright blue sky, but were still able to make the most of our surroundings and make use of the organic props!!
