Downtown Greenville, South Carolina
Downtown Greenville is the best for engagement photos. Tons of variety, multiple locations, and beautiful light at sunset – exactly what I look for in a location. And yet, the majority of couples I talk to tend to shy away from downtown as a location for their engagement session. I can see why too – It seems sort of cliche to have engagement photos taken in one of the most recognizable and famous parts of the city. But what I always tell them if they don’t already have a location in mind is to think less about the location, and more about the purpose of the photos. To me, the purpose of an engagement is to show the couple, how they interact with each other, what they love about each other, and to personify the exact reasons why they are getting married. So for this, the location is more of an afterthought. Because I want to show them, and just use the location as a backdrop.
Angel and Kenny are a great couple together, and I like to think they felt the same. They chose the Rock Quarry Garden for their engagement photos, a nice little side park off from the much bigger Falls Park. Actually, they started in Falls Park to add some variety since Rock Quarry Garden is too small for a full engagement session by itself. But the Rock Quarry Garden has a surprising outdoor vibe for a location in the middle of downtown, which is probably why they liked it so much. Me? I just enjoyed being out there with such a great couple together. To me, the location doesn’t matter – the couple does. And boy, these two really nailed it.
Check out some of my favorites from Angel and Kenny’s Falls Park / Rock Quarry Garden engagement photos below! And if you like these, don’t forget to check out some of my other engagement sessions too.
I hope you enjoyed this quick sample of one of my favorite couples of 2017 so far. Stay tuned for their eventual wedding photos coming up in 2018!
