Bobby & Frances were married at Baxter Farms in Pumpkin Town, South Carolina over looking Table Rock. They had an intimate, outdoor ceremony that lead into a quiet reception. Books and florals were on each table and we watched the dark clouds coming in from the mountains through the screened walls of the building. Thank you for having me photograph such an important day, Bobby & Frances!

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!
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.
I've known Melissa since I was in middle school, so getting her email inquiring about my availability on her wedding date had me so excited! I met her and Luke over coffee and we began planning out their vision for the big day. They spend a lot of time in the outdoors and they was a big part of their wedding day. The ceremony was behind the Table Rock Lodge overlooking the mountain with the reception and dancing inside. I always think of Melissa and Luke as being a mix of free spirits and old souls. They listen to older music, they like a good bit of tie dye, and you can find them hiking most every other weekend. Their wedding day was made more personal by bringing in a lot of those details and things they love. Have a look below at their big day! Below you can find a link to their engagement photos done at the Pink Beds on the Pisgah Ridge.
