I had been looking forward to Fleming and Chris’s wedding ever since I first chatted over the phone with Fleming. Although it was going to be at a different spot at that time, her vision for decor and what she wanted in terms of photography instantly pulled me in. Their engagement session up in Washington DC took my excitement even further (seriously check it out if you haven’t!).

While going into a wedding with super high expectations isn’t always the best as a photographer, I did it anyway. And I wasn’t disappointed one little bit. The setup at the Reserve at Lake Keowee was absolutely stunning, with views of the lake and mountains. Fleming and Chris looked 100% on point, and they even lined up a sailboat for us to shoot with! Seeing as this was the first time I had ever shot a wedding at the Reserve at Lake Keowee, it was fun to find new angles and little places to shoot, and I can’t wait until the next time… even if it unfortunately won’t be with Fleming and Chris. Cheers guys!

City Scape Winery Engagement Shoot | Reagan + Trey

Reagan and Trey’s engagement shoot didn’t feel like a photo session at all, it was more like hanging out with good friends and snapping a photo here and there as we had a few moments in between our conversations. With similar backgrounds to Deb & I, we had plenty to talk and laugh about as we walked all over City Scape Winery and Cedar Falls Park nearby. With some absolutely beautiful weather and scenery, it was a great time to connect and enjoy.

Rainy Wedding at Gassaway Mansion | Danielle + Taylor

Rain is a funny thing. It can be a very good thing, and at times it can be… well… not so good. At our vineyard, rain is usually very welcome, but at weddings… not always so much. Or is it? Despite the incoming rain showers Danielle held fast to having her ceremony outside, which I was actually looking forward to. Having done over 200 weddings I can’t remember another one I shot outside in the rain. A new adventure!

And it was definitely an adventure for all involved. Some stayed complete dry, and others… not so much. I ended up holding an umbrella in the same hand as my camera running around trying to get some different angles. It was actually quite a bit of fun getting to shoot through all the umbrellas, and the rain made for some fun reflections off the ground.

With the memorable ceremony out of the way, the rains calmed down and we headed into the tent just outside the Gassaway Mansion for an absolutely stunning reception filled with plenty of gorgeous decor and wet, yet loving family members. Dancing, speeches, and cake filled the night before the sparkler exit. No rain jacket needed! Check it out!

Hotel Domestique and Cliffs Chapel Wedding | Carl + Diana

11 May 2016

There are days where I show up to good looking weddings, and then there are days I show up and the setup is just absolutely gorgeous (which has been happening more and more lately!). I’m happy to say Carl and Diana’s was right up there with some of the prettiest outdoor setups I’ve ever seen! It was complete with plenty of fresh centerpieces, real antlers, and tastefully chosen linens and table settings. Of course Carl and Diana weren’t too shabby looking themselves, and were complete enamored with each other the entire weekend – which made the whole day just a little bit easier for me.

We started off at Hotel Domestique where everyone was staying for the weekend. With a gorgeous view of the blue ridge mountains, and some eclectic yet tasteful decor inside, it was the perfect place to have their wedding. With many of their guests flying in from Colombia (the REAL Colombia… not Columbia, SC), they wanted to show them just how incredible the Upstate of South Carolina can be. I couldn’t have thought of a better spot for their ceremony up at Cliff’s at Glassy chapel. With it’s stunning views, and some perfect weather, we headed back down to Hotel Domestique for cocktail hour and their reception. After some delicious cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres everyone hit the dance floor for plenty of latin infused dancing. It was an incredible day, just check it out!
