As if photographer Vera Gayazov didn’t capture enough pure romance on the day of Anna and Eugene’s wedding, she met up with the newlyweds for a “day after” shoot at Lake Jocassee in the mountains of South Carolina. We certainly did not think it was possible for this gorgeous couple to captivate us any more than they did on their wedding day, but we’ll gladly concede on this one because this couple’s post-wedding shoot is smoking hot.

Gayazov described the experience as “a super fun day scouting the place,” noting “the water is super clear and beautiful.” It didn’t hurt that our bride, Anna, wasn’t afraid to really go for it, dress and all, to get some amazing shots with her new husband by her side.

Lake Jocassee was without a doubt a drop-dead gorgeous location, but it pales in comparison to Anna and Eugene. Their chemistry and passion is palpable from start to finish, and each photo tells a small story. The natural beauty of the rocks and sand against the clear water and colorful mountains is somehow harmonious with the femininity of Anna in her layers of tulle and Eugene’s relaxed style.

We could not possibly choose a favorite from the day, but bride Anna admits, “My favorite photo is the one of me and Eugene lying down in the sand.” One thing is for certain, the bride and groom have some amazing photos to look back on to remind them exactly how in love they are. Something tells us, though, that this couple will never have trouble remembering in the first place.
