Claire + Russel’s Stylish Romantic Engagement Session Edgefield McMenamins  is definitely one you do not want to miss! It’s like this most amazing feeling when you get an email from a couple and they LOVE your work, they want to meet & they heard about us from some friends. It’s really kind of crazy just how freaking lucky we are to get to work with couples like Claire + Russell! When we met with them last August- the air was warm and the day was humid. We could tell that these two love birds were in the beginning stages of planning and were slightly overwhelmed. I mean let’s be real people, planning a wedding is A LOT of hard work and typically starts at least a year in advance. When you get one thing done, it feels like there are at least 100 more things to then start thinking, planning and dreaming about.

      What made you fall in love? How did you know he/she was the one?

      Claire–I knew Russell was the one when he started to bond with my family more. This was a while into our relationship, and I really loved Russell already, but I knew that he was the ONE once he jumped at the chance to hang out with me and my family.

      Russell–I knew I was falling in love with Claire when I couldn’t bear to be without her even for a few days. Before we were officially dating, we were watching a movie and Claire had to leave. She said she had too much school work to hang out for another week or so, and I was so sad when she left! I knew then that I needed to make her my girlfriend and keep her around for a long time.


      We’d love to know something silly or quirky about each of you! This is your chance to embarrass each other =)

      Russell has the cutest laugh–he literally giggles like a little girl when he really gets going!

      Claire likes to talk to her dogs–she has different voices for when she is talking to dogs, and sometimes she talks to me in that tone or calls me by her dog’s name 🙂
