I have to admit, when I first met with Kayla and Justin and Kayla told me what her parents did, I got a bit intimidated. Why you ask? Her parents were both professional wedding photographers for 25 years. Gulp.
They were searching for a photographer all over the southeast that they could really trust to capture their daughter’s wedding, without having to feel like they had to micro manage. We met and did Kayla and Justin’s engagement session just an hour later as a little test run. It went great and that they booked me for their Tuesday wedding down at the Kalmia Gardens down in Hartsville, SC.
I have to say their wedding felt very similar to our wedding back almost four years ago. They too were blessed with absolutely beautiful weather, they got ready in a Hampton Inn, had an outdoor ceremony surrounded by thousands of spring flowers, and had a gorgeous tented garden reception. Doesn’t get too much closer than that! Kalmia gardens in Hartsville looked absolutely stunning that day as the spanish moss and spring flowers glowed around them. Of course Kayla and Justin were also glowing. It was quite apparent that they were both incredibly in love, and that their family and friends knew they were perfect for each other. Just check out the pictures!
Thanks again for having us guys! We had a blast!
