When Anna Marie reached out to me a few months ago starting with "I know this is a long shot because we know how far Tampa is from SC, but we love your work and are going to dream big here and see if you were available Jan 21, 2017 in Rock Hill, SC." I couldn't have been more honored and truly so excited. I knew Anna Marie through FCA at Clemson and Chase knew Ben through mutual friends at Clemson as well. What I love about their story though is that Ben and Anna were just friends throughout college. They both moved to Charleston after graduation, and pretty soon after that's when Ben asked her out on their first date. After dating for about a year after, Ben proposed in the sweetest way and Anna said YES! It was so fun to watch this relationship grow from a far :)
Chase and I met them in one of my favorite places on earth, downtown Charleston, to take their engagement portraits. We started downtown and made our way over to Sullivan's Island where they hang out on the beach almost every weekend. I mean I don't blame them, it's so beautiful. After knowing Anna Marie, and seeing her and Ben together, I just couldn't stop smiling because I know that God is so faithful and hand picked them to be with each other. After the session they took us to this amazing taco restaurant, where we got to catch up and have some incredible conversation about Jesus, engagement and marriage. Needless to say we are so stinking excited about their wedding and the fact that they are going to be an amazing team for the Lord!
