The night before Clint and Clair's sunrise engagement session, Thomas and I got home around midnight from a wedding and set our alarm for 5am to get ready and head out for the session! Needless to say, we were pretty tired when we got up, but the lack of sleep was so, so, SO worth it for getting to spend the morning with this sweet couple, as well as having the blessing of gorgeous morning sunlight!
Their proposal story is such a good one, and I definitely teared up watching the video of it when they showed us at the session! Clint works for a wine and beer distributer at the beach, so he was able to work with a restaurant manager to arrange a special dinner date with Clair. This restaurant doesn't have dessert menus - instead, they bring around a plate of the desserts for the night and you pick what you'd like to order. Clint designed a special dessert menu with pictures of the two of them and a sweet paragraph on the other side. He had planned for Clair to use the dessert menu to pick her treat, but Clair already knew what she wanted for dessert when she saw the waitress showing another table the plate of desserts. When their waitress brought the menu to their table, Clair tried to order her dessert, but the waitress dropped the menu on the table and rushed off. Clint pushed the menu towards Clair, who pushed it right back to him. He continued to push it back towards her, and she gave him a death glare since she KNEW what she wanted for dessert (haha I would so do that too) :) When she finally opened it and read what Clint wrote to her, he walked over to her, got down on one asking her to marry him, and of course, she said yes! Her reaction on video was so priceless and beautiful!!
These two met several years ago at ECU, so it was fitting to have their engagement session in Greenville! We started off by pond by the health campus, and I'm just loving the pretty light we had and the sweetness between the two of them! :)
After the pond, we headed over to ECU's campus. We were even able to take a few pictures in front of the building where they met while taking a class together, which is the brick building you'll see below!
Congratulations again to Clint and Clair! We are so thankful to have gotten to know you, and we can't wait for your wedding in the fall!
