Nikki + Mike l Hopelands Gardens & Beyond l Aiken, SC Engagement Photographer


October 17, 2015

Nikki + Mike are one of those couples that are just fun to be around! While we shot they perfected their dip kiss skills (or tried) and climbed trees! I spent roughly 90% of our session laughing-seriously. I’ll be shooting their wedding in 2016. (Wahoo!) We decided to start their engagement session at Hopelands Gardens in Aiken. But, as luck would have it, there was a concert going on there when we showed up! Okay…. so plan two….. We decided to break the shoot up into two parts. SOOO…we started with our second location and just did Hopelands another day. Both sessions went beautifully. We had perfect sunsets, gorgeous weather and lots of beautiful shots!

Can’t wait for the big day guys!!
