We adore couples who aren't afraid to bring their own style and charm to their photography sessions. After all, it can be a little awkward to have someone follow you and your other half around while you act lovingly towards one another!
There are some couples who manage not only to break through that awkwardness but also allow their personalities to shine through. Daniel and Cameron are two of the latter, which makes them such a sweet couple to feature for our engagement session series!
As photographer Jessica Hunt says, "These two grooms love openly, un-afraid to be completely themselves with each other. I love when couples are like this, obviously, because it makes my job just a bit easier!"
With Jessica behind the camera, Daniel and Cameron headed all over downtown Columbia to capture some sunny day shots for their engagement session.
HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?
“Cameron saw me at South Carolina Pride in 2014, and then he stalked and found me on Grindr of all places.
"He said 'I found you!' and I replied 'Well, now what are you going to do?' And he said 'Take you to dinner.'
"He took me to Cantina 76 where we sat and drank, ate and talked for over 3 hours…it sealed the deal.
I hugged him goodbye, and our next date was 3 days later!”
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL!
"I proposed to Cameron at Magic Kingdom via a caricature!
"Plans were for me to propose to him on our cruise we took via karaoke, but they only had karaoke the first night of the cruise, and we were at dinner during the time so I missed my opportunity.
"When we arrived at Magic Kingdom after our cruise, I had his ring in my backpack and no clue how I was getting it on his finger!
"After lunch we noticed a caricature artist, and Cameron was excited as we had been wanting to do one! There were no appointments for a while so we walked away. I came back and booked the appointment and told them what I was planning:
"She was to draw me on one knee proposing. When the time arrived, I was beyond nervous and fidgety, a crowd was gathering and Cameron asked the artist if crowds were common, she played along and said “Oh yes, it happens all the time!”
When she was finished and turns the picture around I was on one knee and asking the big question, while Cameron was confused as to his positioning in the picture. A few seconds later, he realized what was going on and with tears in his eyes he said, ‘YES!!!'”
