I really don’t even know where to begin to describe what a great time I had with Alyse and Alex during their modern Charleston engagement session. These two…even the thesaurus can’t accurately describe how amazing they are! We met up Friday afternoon in downtown Charleston for their engagement session, and even their rescue fur baby, Donnie, made a special photo appearance!  Thank you Andrea for working your magic with the dog treats! : )

Alyse and Alex met during college and quickly realized that no matter what happened, or what they may disagree about they knew they did not want a life without each other.  Ultimately, their proposal happened soon after that realization. I absolutely loved that when Alex proposed he was so excited he couldn’t wait. Out to a fancy dinner and with of course a stroll down the beach planned – Alex couldn’t quite make it to the beach stroll. Once dinner ended, Alex got down on one knee, and proposed to Alyse right then. Clearly she said yes. : )

I absolutely love that when I asked them what they like to do together their first response was, ‘We do everything together.’ Traveling foodies they love taking Donnie to a park or cooking at home.

I cannot wait for Alyse and Alex’s wedding. The love these two have for each other is breath taking and puts a permanent smile on my face. There isn’t one good word to describe them. Instead you just get this happy, giddy feeling witnessing them together.  I mean anyone who starts dancing in the middle of the street…you know they are great.

Thank you so much Alyse and Alex for allowing me to document your modern Charleston engagement and soon your wedding! <3the smiths do lovecharleston engagement photographersmodern charleston engagementengagement photographer charleston scengagement photographers charlestonengagement photography charleston
