I couldn’t think of a better wedding to kick off the spring wedding season. Jake and Olivia had an absolutely perfect day filled with friends and family from all over the country, lots of great dancing, plenty of memorable speeches, and some absolutely delicious food and drinks.

We started off at the Cliffs at Glassy where Olivia got ready nearby in the Cliffs at Glassy Clubhouse. We took some quick photos before heading up to the stunning Cliffs Chapel for their ceremony. After their hand written vows didn’t leave a dry eye, we headed out for some photos around the property. Shortly after we headed down the mountain to take some photos in falls park before we headed over to the Old Cigar Warehouse for their reception. Check it out:

I’m always amazed at my couples. They usually have such great stories, but in this case Brianna and Andrew really went above and beyond! Brianna is finishing up her medical degree, and Andrew is a helicopter pilot for the military. With very limited time to spend together, it was great to capture their love as we explored all around City Scape Winery, and the nearby Cedar Falls Park in lower Greenville County. Check it out:

Logos Theater Taylors SC Wedding | Jennifer + Justin

You have to love the humble, creative, and courageous personality of Jennifer.

I received a message from her early last year describing how much she loved our work, and someday she hoped to be able to use us to capture her wedding. She just had a couple problems. 1) She wasn’t engaged yet, and 2) She was working for a non-profit ministry and probably wouldn’t be able to afford our services. She offered to help in any way possible, even if to just run alongside us with a water bottle. Well, long story short, she helped assist at many of our weddings last year, finally got engaged, and was able to work up enough credit with us that we could capture her wedding! You gotta love it!

Jennifer and Justin held their wedding at the Academy of the Arts Logos Theater in Taylors, SC, where they had served for years putting on plays, doing graphic design, and leading teams abroad. Seeing as theaters are not typically wedding venues, I was curious to see how everything would look. I was so impressed. She had the team put together a beautiful set with dozens of edition bulbs hanging over a beautifully lit backdrop. The lighting was impeccable. The ceremony started with a video of Jennifer and Justin talking about their story and how God works in mysterious ways sometimes. Jennifer and Justin had worked together plenty of times over the years, but there was no connection. Now they were going to be making the biggest commitment you can make. Check it out:

Year in Review 2016: Top 68 Images of the Year

By all accounts 2016 was an incredible year. We photographed more weddings than ever before, were name 2016 Wedding Photographer of the Year by NACE, and got to travel to some incredible places in between. From several mountaintop cliffs weddings, to a wedding overlooking the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, from rainy day weddings that turned out great, to an enchanting night garden wedding, and even a wedding with a light saber send-off! It was also a huge year for me personally (if you haven’t read the full story you can check it out here). Leaving my full time job to pursue photography more fully turned out to be a great decision and I can’t imagine going back.

I am incredibly grateful for all the trusting couples that allowed me to take the next steps this year: both artistically and personally. It was truly a landmark year, and I cannot wait for what 2017 has to bring! Until then, here’s a quick look back at a very incredible 2016. Cheers!!
