Jessie & Zeke | Table Rock Lodge Destination Wedding Photographer

Jessie and Zeke were married in a tiny cabin with a view of Table Rock in February of 2017. For them this was a destination wedding, but for me it was the backyard mountains I grew up in. Jessie found me on Instagram and I'm so happy she did. We clicked instantly through emails and I loved meeting up with her and her mom at The Village Grind in Greenville. This wedding was unusual for me because it was on a Monday! Something new, right?! New and fun! The wedding was made up of so many sweet touches-from dinosaurs in Jessie's bouquet-all of which her mom made, the many very cute cakes (Jessie made them HERSELF), the sign's around the venue her son's wrote, their personal vows, and on. I loved shooting this beautiful wedding and am so happy for Jessie and Zeke. It's been fun keeping in touch with them and seeing their first year of marriage together.  

Lauren & Rony | Gassaway Mansion Wedding, Greenville, South Carolina

Lauren and Rony were married on the coldest day in December at a Catholic Church off Augusta and then hightailed it to the Gassaway Mansion for one of the best parties I've been to. Their wedding was an intimate gathering of about forty people who ate a spread at the Mansion, danced late into the night, and wished the couple a farewell into the cold. I loved shooting this wedding for how beautifully intimate it was, how much love surrounded the couple, how much fun the guests had on the dance floor, and for the fun I had shooting all of it. Thank you, Lauren and Rony! This day was sweet. 

Kayla | Clemson Botanical Garden Bridals

Kayla's bridals were done at the Clemson Botanical Gardens a few weeks before her August wedding and I had the best time meeting her family when we did them! Kayla is so sweet and so willing to walk and stand and pose and try all the things we did during her session. I miss working with you already, Kayla! So happy for you and Josh.  

Emily & David | Spring Engagement | Easley, South Carolina

When Emily approached me about shooting her wedding I about scream/cried because I'd been waiting for this moment for YEARS! She and I were stand partners in our high school's orchestra class and have been long friends ever since. Emily and David are the sweetest and we had a BLAST shooting this 'Up!' inspired engagement shoot on David's family's land in Easley. There's nothing like hopping on the back of a mule with all of your equipment and a dozen balloons and having an enormous amount of land to choose from to shoot! Best part was I wasn't trespassing, or going to have to explain why I was standing in someone's yard shooting photos! Ha! Emily & David, I had such a wonderful time and every day we pass is a day closer to your beautiful wedding! I cannot wait for October!    

Jess & Jordan | The Music Camp, Spartanburg, SC

If you're into a forest-bohemian styled wedding, then this is it for you! I met Jess a very interesting way back in the winter but knew instantly it was a blessing in disguise. From that first initial meeting to a playdate with her baby goats and driving to North Carolina for bridals, all the way to the gorgeous wedding day, it has been the most incredible adventure and I am so happy I was asked to be there to document it all. Jess & Jordan had a love-filled wedding day and I left feeling, not only happy and excited but so full of love and thankfulness to see such a wonderful group of people that came together to celebrate this couple. The entire day was filled with such amazing details from the hand-made tambourines (HAND-MADE BY THE BRIDE, Y'ALL!), to the flowers in the guests' hair, to the hand-made dream catchers as favors, and let's not forget the brick oven pizza cooked on site! This wedding was over a month ago and I am still giddy over it! Thank you again, Jess & Jordan! These images are truly some of my favorites, and I'm so blessed have been a part of it.  

Shelley & Matthew | Camp McCall, Sunset, South Carolina

I met Shelley and Matthew at a small coffee shop in Easley over a year ago. We had some good coffee and laughs over remembering some yearbook staff days at EHS and got to business talking about their upcoming spring wedding. When Matthew began explaining their wedding venue I was very curious and excited at the thought of shooting their day at a boy's summer camp up in the mountains behind Pickens. The wedding day was everything I had pictured it to be! Quaint little chapel on the top of a mountain; filled to the brim with friends and family supporting Shelley and Matthew as they took this big jump into the future. They finished the night dancing in the mess hall and with a fun sparkler send off. Thank you so much for having me be with you on your big day, Mr & Mrs Trotter! It was a delight! Thank you, Sophie Hopkins, for being my second on this wedding! Some of her photos are below!
