Spring is a great time to visit Wormsloe Plantation and its one of the most beautiful locations in Savannah for an enagement session or a wedding. I met up with Anna and Brad last weekend for engagement photos. We began with portraits at the front gate and then visited various sections of the park. Brad currently lives in Florida where he is a Captain in the US Air Force and Anna lives in New York City as a financial services consultant. It was nice to spend time photographing this couple as they enjoyed their time together. The couple will be getting married in November near Anna’s hometown of Pasadena, California. Next summer, they’ll be moving to the same city to be together.
How Did you meet? Our story began in Beavercreek, a quiet town in southern Ohio. We were both military officers on our first assignment at Wright Patterson AFB. We met through a mutual friend, and if you asked us then we would have never believed that we would eventually get married! Being a joint military couple, we knew challenges lay ahead. The reality of having two diverging careers and two different sets of ambitions forced us to evaluate how much we were committed to each other, because the road ahead was not going to be easy. Fast forward to today: four years of long distance dating in 5 different states and through major career transitions for both of us! Looking back, I can’t believe we made it work (it sure wasn’t easy!) but that journey will prepare us well for marriage. I feel so incredibly to blessed to have Brad in my life, I never imagined I could love and be loved this much.
What made you decide on Savannah for you engagement session? Savannah was love at first site. With me living in Manhattan and Brad living in coastal Florida, we had many great options for where to do our engagement shoot: Central Park, New York’s majestic libraries, the beach, on a boat… but there is nothing quite like Savannah. All at once rustic, romantic, and elegant, it is a city that looks as if time itself stood still to admire her beauty: Spanish moss framing cobblestone paths, plantation houses still boasting their antebellum prime, and majestic oaks watching over lazy rivers and grasslands.
What do you like most about Savannah? It always feels like Sunday morning – beautiful yet relaxed, put on your Sunday’s best to spend the day with family, friends, and good food!
