Can you really say you photographed during a Southern Summer unless there are rhododendrons in the images? Luckily- we had an abundance of them during Adrianne & Zach’s engagement session at the Clemson Botanical Gardens. These two told me about their wedding plans as we walked the pathways and were kind of enough to hop in a garden of Iris of ‘just the right photo.’ They ended up using it at their wedding, so safe to say they were happy with it. Stay tuned for their wedding.

Lauren & Rob are two lovely friends that I've had the pleasure of getting to know the past two years. Lauren and I have shot many weddings together and Rob has been in attendance at several of those fun weddings. They are in a transition period in their life and moving away from the amazing Blue Ridge Mountains and I wanted to gift them some photographs as a memory to this place they called home for several years. We met out at Lake Jocasse for some laughs and exploring at dusk and came out with some beautiful images thanks to the summer storm we had just missed. Lauren & Rob, I hope you look at these images fondly and they remind you of the mountains of South Carolina that you called home for a few years in your 20's. I'm so thankful for the friendship we established, the weddings we shot together, and the memories we made. I can't wait to see where life takes the two of you.
Taylor & Aaron met me on a warmer than normal fall day at Lake Jocassee for their engagement session last fall. This was their first time being there, but I've spent many days kayaking and enjoying the water and amazing views the park has. We had a wonderful afternoon climbing rocks and exploring the landscape. Aaron was a jovial presence and I can see perfectly why he and Taylor are so happy with one another. I'll be blogging their 2018 wedding soon!
Samantha & Grant got married in the beginnings of spring at Easley Presbyterian Church and had their ceremony across the street at Easley's new reception center, South & West. This wedding was FUN for so many reasons! I was honored to second shoot Samantha's younger sister's wedding two years prior with Hannah Woodard Photo and was able to shoot Samantha's older sister's baby photos! (Twice!) The Lake family has been a favorite for a while. They throw the -best- parties and this wedding was no exception. Grant and his friends were a blast to hang out with and Samantha's girls treated us like friends. I ADORE her bridesmaid's dresses and the touches of significant throughout the day. Samantha's bouquet was adorned with the pins of her sorority sisters and her veil has been worn by her two sisters and her mother at her own wedding. Not to mention-this is the same church where her parents and two sisters got married. I'm so pleased to have been able to shoot this fun day and almost a year later still enjoy looking back at these photos. Thank you Sam & Grant! (And thank you, Sophie Hopkins, for helping me shoot this beautiful wedding!)
