Stacy & David: Engagement Portraits

“We don’t need a Plan B,” I emailed to Stacy. “ says we’ll be fine.” lied.

It was chilly, gray, and drizzly as Stacy, David, and I met in Downtown Greenville, SC, for their engagement portraits today, but the weather didn’t dampen the spirits of these two, who I’ve known since we were all in high school together. They laughed and giggled during the entire session, and I just couldn’t wait to post their Sneak Peek!







A lot of times, my couples (*cough cough–grooms*) will say that they hate having their pictures taken, and I try to reassure them that we’ll have fun and they’ll eventually forget that I’m even there. At the beginning today’s session, David told me that he would rather be at the dentist getting a tooth pulled than having his pictures taken. As we said our goodbyes, however, he told me and Stacy “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t actually have fun doing this!” 🙂 So there you have it folks, Amy Clifton Photography is better than dental work.

Kathy & Jonathan: Engagement Portraits

Kathy and Jonathan are kind and loving, quietly funny, and have great taste in music. They are having an intimate wedding in January with only their immediate family attending, and I am honored to celebrate with them. We photographed their engagement portraits at one of their favorite places here in Greenville, SC–the Rock Quarry Garden. It was here that they ventured the evening they got engaged to dream about their future and celebrate their happily ever after…




Like most photographers in Greenville, I shoot at the Rock Quarry pretty frequently (hellooo, it’s beautiful there!). It’s fun trying to find new angles or spots there to shoot…





Earlier in the week, Kathy scoped out this amazing trail nearby. We almost didn’t go here, as it was getting close to Clemson’s kick-off 🙂 . I’m SO glad we did–it was a stunning location and Kathy and Jonathan just look so in love in these shots.


LOOK CLOSELY! Do you see all 3 Kathys in this picture?




Maybe my favorite from the whole session…love, love, love this one!!


Kathy & Jonathan–I’m so happy to know you, and I’m looking forward to your wedding in January. It is wonderful and inspiring to see God in the center of your relationship.
