Downtown Charleston Engagement Session || Megan & Joe

Downtown Charleston Engagement Session

Joe and Megan’s Downtown Charleston engagement session in was absolute perfection. Even though the weather for us was SO cloudy and borderline dark, we pulled out some of my favorite images to date for two of my all-time favorite humans!When one of your best friends gets engaged, you RUN to Charleston and shoot her engagement photos ASAP! These two clean up so well!

Megan and I have known each other since our freshman year of college. We were roommates for (approximately) 2 weeks before I moved out of our dorm. I hate that I ended up missing living gal, but we spent so much time with each other in college we may as well have been roommates! We became fast friends and our friendship has withstood college, graduation, and 6 moves between us. Our friend group used to pick on Megan so much because we told her her standards were so high! But truly, I am so proud of the woman that she has become, how she stood her ground and waited for what she knew she deserved: only the best. She guarded her heart and waited for a man that pursued her with the purest intentions.

Their Love Story

Enter Joe. Joe and Megan met in September of 2019 when Megan joined the University of North Carolina’s football staff as an athletic trainer. Joe had been working there for one year already on the coaching staff. It wasn’t love at first sight for these two. Joe and Megan began their relationship with a 3 year friendship. It was the perfect start to their story, as they got to know each other, support one another through hard times (even break ups), and truly build a solid foundation. As they hit the 3 year mark in their friendship, Joe and Megan spent 80-100 hours per week at work together, had the same core group of friends, and confided in each other for a lot of things. Joe realized that he could see it all with Megan: a relationship, a marriage, a life, a family. He took a risk pursuing her knowing her could lose their friendship, but to him, she was worth the risk.

Joe asked Megan to marry him on the very first day they moved into their brand new home in Charleston and she said YES! I can’t wait for the treat of being IN this wedding instead of photographing it! However, we knew I had to at least photograph their engagement session. Their wedding at Legare Waring House this summer is going to be nothing short of perfect.

Joe and Megan – I adore you both! Thank you for letting me photograph this special time of life for you guys and even more, thanks for letting me be a part of your lives. I feel so lucky that Chance and I get to walk through this life with you two as friends!
