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.

Sarah & Brecken met me in downtown Greenville for their fun, early fall engagement shoot. This was my first time meeting Brecken, but Sarah is my cousin! So, I've known her my entire life! It's always so much sweeter shooting family and it made it even more sweeter because they will be married -today- at Larkins on the River. I know this is going to be an amazing party with some wonderful people and I cannot wait to meet all of their friends and get it started. Happy to have you in the family, Brecken! And happy to see my sweet cousin growing into this wonderful woman. Happiest for you both!
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!)
Shooting one of your best friend's bridals adds an entire extra level of emotion to the entire day of shooting and the next day of editing. Even better than just shooting Miranda's bridals, I also got to make her bouquet and that made me SO HAPPY! I love playing with flowers and making arrangements and was delighted she trusted me to take not only her bridals, but also make her bouquet. My mom and I went foragaing in Piedmont, South Carolina a few days before and I made the bouquet with those flowers, plus a few from Miranda's own garden. We drove up to Craggy Gardens and danced around in the rhododendrons for a bit, shot some fun photos, and ate a delicious vegan lunch in Asheville to finish of the day. (I say that, but we really finished off the day by going back to Miranda's and taking a nap. Ha!) Miranda, I had the best time and love these images. Thank you so much for the perfect day of shooting and fun.
