What an interesting day we have had today! Today is the day that will go down in history for us – Today, we went viral.
It all started with an innocent little engagement shoot in downtown Charleston with our lovely couple Ashley Donald & Erik Rogers. We were roaming the streets of downtown Charleston (the most romantic city in the country, btw) doing their engagement pictures… and most of the time when I have an attractive couple, you get to hear all sorts of noises around you – from whistles, to “you look hottttt” to “congratulations!” – I set the couple down on that little staircase to get ready for a shot and I hear people talking in the back and as I’m looking through the lens, the couple seems stunned and distracted… I think to myself – oh great, someone is bothering them – I turn around and I see Mr. Murray standing there with his shirt pulled up and belly proudly on display which he is patting pretty loudly in an attempt to make the couple laugh – Needless to say I was stunned and I invited Mr. Murray to join the couple for a quick shot – He obliged and congratulated them and went on his way… leaving behind an extremely happy couple and this photo that will be forever remembered by this couple (and us!!!).
All in all, we ended up with this photo of the couple that has gone viral – The phone hasn’t stopped buzzing since we posted it on Twitter (@fiaforeverphoto) and Facebook this morning with emails and calls from news and media! We are just grateful to have been there when Mr. Murray decided to show up and mostly to our awesome couple… Congratulations Ashley & Erik!
Here are some additional photographs from their engagement shoot that day…
