How can you beat a Charleston engagement session? It’s just not possible, but it’s at least icing on the cake when the couple is as adorable as Jonathan and Taylor and they bring along their sweet fur babies.
We caught up with Jonathan and Taylor on their turf in Charleston, SC near their home, and of course there are so many inspiring places in downtown for a photographer. The sun was shining, and the crisp breeze was just enough to keep everybody cool and Taylor’s hair doing some pretty stuff. As we strolled, we quickly fell in love with this couple and their chemistry together. The story of how they met is so fitting for them–spontaneous, funny, easy-going, and crystal clear. Taylor said:
I think it is a perfect love story, fit for a movie plot. We first met when I was just 16 years old, and we never really even knew that we met until years later. When I recieved my drivers license, that was the fate of my forever and I had no idea at the time…. Jonathon is a partner in a body shop repair business, and at the time he was running the store closest to my house, in Mount Pleasant. When I got into my first accident, his store was closest, and had great reviews so I went there. Sadly enough, there were multiple times where I needed my car fixed, not all my fault 🙂 and by default, since his body shop did great work – I continued to do business with them each time. Then there was ‘the one time’ that I needed my car to be repaired, a couple years later, minor damage. I had not been by in awhile, and I had moved to a different area of Charleston so I found him on facebook to inquire if he was still at the Mount Pleasant store where we first did business. He too had moved to a different store that they had just opened in Goose Creek, which just so happened to be closer to where I lived and very convienent again. He told me to bring it by and he would get it done, and then proceeded to lend me HIS personal truck as my ‘rental car.’ The kind man ended up paying in full for this repair when I went to pick up my car when it was completed. And later that day he texted me and asked if I had a boyfriend. We soon got together to have dinner downtown at Stars Restaurant and we formally started dating very soon after that, and the rest is history! He is the love of my life and I am beyond excited to marry him very soon!
Their excitement is not only obvious, but contagious too. We are so thrilled to be the photographers for the big day and are so happy for these two sweet people!
