Last summer I photographed a couple that was one of the kindest, most selfless couples I’ve ever worked with. Julia and Ben had their wedding on July 8 this past year (see it here!), and it was a dream! Rebekah is Julia’s sister, and was her maid of honor!! On the car ride to Julia & Ben’s first look, Rebekah mentioned she was dating pretty seriously! I sort of slipped in the conversation to let me know if she needed a photographer since Rebekah is just as sweet as her sister! I love getting to photograph weddings of past bride’s siblings or bridal party since we already know each other from the wedding day, and they’ve seen the behind-the-scenes of what goes on and what to expect. Fast forward a few weeks and Mark proposed to Rebekah, and she was a Christa Rene bride!!!! It’s been so fun to plan with her through the past months, and I’m thrilled I get to work with Rebekah & her amazing family again in Pennsylvania this summer!
Rebekah & Mark drove ALL the way from Pennsylvania for their engagement session, and thankfully we’ve been having incredible weather after the storm earlier last week! I got to talk with them as a couple for the first time, and they just click so well. They’re such a cute couple, and when I’d have Mark lean in and nuzzle I looked over to see him whispering sweet things in Rebekah’s ear. You can tell just by the way Rebekah looks at him that she’s so crazy about him! It’s such a gift to capture this exciting stage in my couples’ life, and I always leave with such a full heart!
With Rebekah working night shift at a hospital, and Mark’s hours working accounting, I know every moment they have is precious and such a gift. What a joy to capture some of those moments in this beautiful engagement session at Furman University!
Rebekah & Mark, I just adore you two and your sweet, gracious love for each other that’s so evident! Next summer can’t come soon enough!!
Her ring is GORGEOUS!!!Just so much joy!The way he looks at her… just the sweetest!We ended by the lake right at dusk. How perfect!
