Rock Hill SC Engagement Photos Jas and Varinder

Rock Hill SC Engagement Photos Jas and Varinder

Jas and Varinder met through an online dating site (we are meeting more and more couples like this now it seems!) and held their first date in Charlotte. Varinder is from Northern California and this was his first time in Charlotte – yes that is right, he flew to Charlotte for their first date. How romantic! Jas took Varinder on a sightseeing tour of Charlotte for the night and showed him all that the Queen City has to offer. Varinder said “he didn’t see much of the city, was too intrigued with his tour guide”

The engagement session started at Glencairn Gardens in Rock Hill, South Carolina.  The park is filled with all sorts of stunning features.  Flowers beds, waterfalls, lakes, just an absolutely gorgeous setting. 

Jas, being relatively shy, was taken aback with how easy it was to converse with Varinder and was really able to open up and talk about anything and everything. Plus, she added he looked very “charming and strong”. They both agree that immediately following the first date, they wanted more, and agreed to see each other very soon thereafter.

Here is the kicker: When we first met; they supposedly came to us to just take some photos. They both knew that somewhere in the near future they would marry, but Varinder had something special in store for Jas this night and she was completely clueless about it.

Since they met for the first time (physically) in Charlotte, they both agreed this should be the location for their photo session. After a little planning, we all agreed that Glencairn Gardens would be the ideal backdrop for the session, and then the plan was to end up in Uptown Charlotte for some final cityscape photos. We ended up at one of our favorite parking decks for Charlotte skyline photography and as we started the session, Varinder dropped to one knee and proposed. Jas' reaction was incredible. The two aren't skipping a beat and are getting married later this fall in NorCal!

 The day of the session was a typical Charlotte area summer day, hot, muggy, and buggy, but Jas and Varinder were troopers and we made the best of every corner the Gardens had to offer.

 Jas and Varinder have a special connection that is so apparent even in their photographs.  It was fun to watch them transform from nervous newbies in front of the camera to just being themselves for the remainder of the photography session.

 Many thanks to Meliha Custovic of The Beauty Fairy in Charlotte, North Carolina for the gorgeous MUAH on Jas.  She was stunning and even sweat-free the entire session, and with that gross weather that is no small feat!

 A staircase and giant oak tree provided the perfect backdrop for these photos, and I did not need to ask for much interaction, our beautiful human subjects just kind of took the reins. :)

 The coolest thing about Jas and Varinder is their affection and smiles - for each other.  They're always smiling these warm, affectatious smiles!

 Glencairn Gardens offers so many shaded photographic opportunities, that we were able find some perfect lighting at every turn.

 Bollywood style Indian engagement portrait

 Jas and Varinder had one specific photo request, this Bollywood-esque photo from a famous Indian wedding movie.  So we gladly replicated it for them.

 I casually joke with all my clients during their engagement sessions that we need to capture a "formal desk frame photo" yes, it's kinda cheesy and formal, and a departure from my typical style, but how nice is it to have one of these simple and classic images just sitting on your desk that you can look up at throughout the day and smile at the one you love? :)

 I can't say in words how much I loved this photography session.  Their outfits and bright colors and gorgeous faces and personalities were amazing contrasts with the vibrant colors that Glencairn Gardens offers.

 As I referenced above, we will leave you with the culminating element of the photo shoot: Varinder's surprise candid proposal with the Charlotte skyline behind them and Jas' reaction. Congratulations, Jas and Varinder! Thank you so very much for allowing us to capture these special moments for you.

From the initial meeting to communication, to the wedding, everything was wonderful. Deevo has a quirky personality and it made the whole experience better. My husband didn't really like taking pictures, but I think he enjoyed it because of Deevo.
