The Engagement Photography Experience | Erica + Logan

Sarah Goldman Photography has teamed up with WedTexts this year to follow several Charleston couples on their wedding journey – from their engagements to the big day!

In February, I met and photographed Erica and Logan, who are planning a North Carolina wedding in September.  Read their write up in Charleston Weddings here!   Erica and Logan will be using WedTexts to coordinate their wedding weekend.  See the highlights from their engagement here.

“I think WedTexts is going to help me keep my wedding celebration from being complete chaos. It is so hard to get everyone on the same page and “in the know”. I think it will save me a lot of phone calls and confusing texts, and I think every bride could use an app that helps reduce the stress.”  – Erica

We caught up with Erica to find out how the planning was going for their intimate wedding at Castle Ladyhawke.

SGP:  How is the wedding planning going?

E:  The planning is going very well, for our ceremony, as it is only our parents joining us for that. As you know, we have invited family and close friends to join us the weekend after our ceremony, this is were I think WedText is going to be awesome! We haven’t been to Asheville, NC before and that is were we will be heading. It’s been a bit stressful thinking of things we can all do and coordinating with everyone, as most everyone will be coming from different state.

SGP:  Is Logan helping with the plans?

E:  Logan is definitely helping with the planning, maybe even a little too much! He is choosing his own tux and making sure his side of the family stays “in the loop” with any plans. I’m thankful he is helpful with everything, it’s taken a lot of stress off of me.

SGP: What is your biggest challenge right now?

Our biggest challenge right now has been keeping up with all of the guests we’ve invited and making sure everyone is able to book a hotel or has somewhere to stay. It’s very hard knowing if hotels/cabins are in the same vicinity as we will be, I’d hate for someone to book something and have to drive a half hour or more to get to things. Google works great, but it’s not always accurate.

SGP:  Were you two nervous for your engagement session?  Was it what you expected?

E: I wouldn’t say we we’re nervous, we were very excited, just a bit unsure of what to expect. We had a blast! Logan even commented that he, “fell even more in love” with me as we stared into each other’s eyes, so very sweet. We will always cherish those moments, especially because it was our first photo shoot together.

SGP:  Which photos are your favorites from the engagement session?

E:  Oh my gosh, it is so hard to choose my favorites!! I love the one with Logan and I kissing with the bushes and iron fence behind us, I love the colors. I also love the ones done in the middle of church street and down Philadelphia Alley, so cool. I really love them all, you did an amazing job Sarah!

Thanks for letting us tag along on your wedding planning journey, Erica and Logan!  We can’t wait to hear about your wedding at Castle Ladyhawke!

Waterfront Park Engagement | Sharlene + Zack

After a Christmas holiday engagement, Sharlene and Zack are planning a spring time wedding in Charleston.  These two love birds met in high school – don’t you just love an old fashioned love story?

I met Sharlene and Zack at the pineapple fountain in Waterfront Park.  It was so windy that we quickly moved on to the narrow cobblestone streets of downtown Charleston.

Rosie + Bob | College of Charleston Engagement Session

Rosie and Bob had a whirlwind of festivities this past Valentine’s Day Weekend, but they took time out to meet me at the College of Charleston for their engagement photos.  These two are planning a wedding in Rosie’s hometown of Greenville, SC, and the excitement of their engagement was very apparent during their session!

Rosie and Bob – It was so great to meet you two!  Best of luck with all the wedding planning and finishing residency, Bob!  Don’t forget to empty those pockets on the big day – you probably won’t need an apple during the ceremony!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding | Peter + Michelle

After meeting and falling in love in Charleston, Peter and Michelle traveled to England to visit Peter’s family.  It was Easter Sunday.  He had taken her to the London Zoo to see the penguins, and afterwards he planned to find the perfect spot in Regent’s Park in which to propose. Peter was looking for a bench, but none were available so he nervously made laps around the park.  When Michelle asked “What are you doing?” he finally dropped to one knee and asked for her hand.

It was a perfect autumn day in the Lowcountry.  The sun was shining and the no-see-ums stayed away.  It was warm, but cool enough to pull on a sweater in the evening.  Peter and Michelle’s wedding day at Magnolia Plantation was picture perfect!  From the adorable flower girl to Peter singing his heart out to his new bride, the day was filled with happy memories.

Michelle and Peter, thank you for letting me be a part of your incredible day!  I hope you had a great local honeymoon at Middleton Place. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Cheers,

Sarah

Andy + Tracey | Columbus, Ohio Wedding

They waited 12 years to become husband and wife.  He casually said “I’m saving for a ring.”  She said “OK, well, I’m picking one out!”  And with that, plans were set in motion for Andy and Tracey’s rustic fall wedding at the Amelita Mirolo Barn in Upper Arlington.

The trees had just started turning in central Ohio, and the temperatures were finally feeling like fall.  What a treat for this South Carolina photographer who doesn’t get to experience fall in all it’s northern glory!

Andy and Tracey – Congratulations!  Thank you so much for letting me be part of your big day.  It truly was beautiful to witness not only the love you have for each other, but the love your friends and family have for you.

xoxo,

Sarah

Cashiers, NC Wedding | Scott and Kat

She approached him at the Kickin’ Chicken on James Island.  They were out with friends and he was wearing a very large watch.  Her pick up line?  “Are you wearing a SUNDIAL?”  They talked the rest of the night about fishing…about everything.  After several years of fishing dates, camping, fondue, and travel to the mountains of North Carolina, Scott proposed at Spoonauger Falls in the upstate of South Carolina.

Kat and Scott chose Cashiers, NC as their wedding destination since the mountains of North Carolina are close to their hearts. The day was perfect.  The weather was cool in the mountains with the sun peeking in and out from behind the clouds.  The bride and groom were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they wed overlooking Lupton Lake and mountains.

Scott and Kat,  What a treat to spend a couple days in Cashiers! Now I understand why you love it so much!  Together you make others want to love more – to find their lobster.  I wish you a lifetime of love and adventures!  xo, Sarah
