Marissa+Dennis | Berry College Engagement Photographer
This past fall, I had the opportunity to travel to Berry College in Rome Ga for Marissa and DT’s Engagement session. This was my second time to Berry College and it is quickly becoming my favorite spot for sessions with couples. There’s so much variety there and I think you’ll see that with their session and another one soon to follow!
But this was particularly special for many reasons, the first being that this place is a big piece of their story. Marissa is a senior at Berry and she met DT at a local CrossFit gym, so their love story began to grow here. Now, some of you are probably wondering why I say “DT”, and that is because that was how he introduced himself the day I met him. We also call him Toney or Coach! haha! He and I met in 2009 as we came into a ministry called SWAT. This incredible ministry is based in Athens GA and it consists of college aged leaders who teach and disciple middle-school and high-school students. DT and I have gone through some life together, so naturally when we met last summer to talk about this incredible woman he was going to propose to, I was all in. I knew that this girl had to be completely saturated in the Lord, because that’s where DT has always been. He’s always been a strong man of God and I couldn’t wait to meet the girl who stole his heart!
Right away, during their session, I knew how perfect they were for each other. When Marissa and DT are together, they are like school kids. Always making each other smile and laugh without me ever really needing to prompt them. I love working with clients who literally light each other up right before my eyes, and that’s what they did. We chased light for hours and ended up in the exact place that they met – the Gym. I’m so excited to journey with them this year towards the greatest day in their lives. June is just a few short months away but for now, enjoy a few of my favorites from their engagement session.
Tune in this June on Instagram to get a sneak peak from their wedding! Also check back to my last blog about getting published in my first wedding magazine! Maybe we’ll see these two in one some day! :D
