When Jennifer told us she wanted to do Great Gatsby engagement photos, we knew immediately that The Gassaway Mansion, a wedding venue here in Greenville, would be the perfect spot. George and Jennifer drove from their home over six hours away to Greenville for the Gatsby engagement photo session…talk about dedication! Kristina and I (David) had a blast with this one! A thunder storm was fast approaching when we arrived, so we pulled out some additional lighting to get some dramatic shots with dark clouds in the sky.
The interior of the Gassaway Mansion gave us countless options for interesting angles and we were able to incorporate much of the architecture and decor in the photographs…definitely one of our favorite and most unique engagement sessions all summer!
The dark storm clouds were PERFECT for this shot! It really makes for a more dramatic impression of The Gassaway Mansion in the background.
Incorporating the chandelier in the foreground really adds to the intimacy of the photo while incorporating the environment into the shot.
Ah yes! Reflections! We love finding ways to see a scene differently with our cameras.
Gotta love the staircase at The Gassaway Mansion. Just add a beautiful couple and put a spotlight on them.
The Gassaway Mansion is full of great decor, furniture, and architectural elements that really add to the environment of these photographs.
The photos below are probably my favorite ones from the whole session. Incorporating not one, but two mirrors really gives the scene more dimension.
