Camden and Carter had one of those weddings that everyone dreams of. Perfect weather, happy couple, elegant venues, and lots of loving family and friends. I have to say though, my favorite part of the whole day was just the amazing energy in the room. Everyone was beyond excited for Camden and Carter to finally be married, and Camden and Carter echo’ed it tenfold.

We started out at Camden’s parents house, where everyone got ready for the day. With plenty of beautiful locations it set the perfect backdrop for their photos before we headed over to St. Mary’s Church in Downtown Greenville, a place that had been used for many generations of marriages in their family. Afterwards we headed to the always stunning Poinsett Club, which was decked out some beautiful lighting, centerpeices, and four 10-foot trees in the center of the ballroom. Everyone danced the night away to the sounds of Soul Fusion before they lined up for a fiery sparkler exit!

Chanticleer Fall Wedding Photos | Katherine + Robert

I had been looking forward to Katherine and Robert’s wedding ever since they mentioned the words “clear glass dance floor over the pool.” You see, most backyard weddings have a certain special vibe, but I knew this one would take that to a whole new level. Held in the beautiful Chanticleer area of Greenville overlooking the golf course, I knew we wouldn’t have any problems finding some beautiful backdrops to shoot at.

We started off at the house doing some quick getting ready shots before heading over to the stunning First Presbyterian Church in Downtown Greenville, SC where Katherine and Robert met for the first time. After a beautiful and emotional ceremony, everyone headed back to Chanticleer for the reception. As everyone had their grand entrance down the beautiful staircase, they had their first dance on that beautiful glass dance floor. As the drinks started flowing, I was waiting for someone to fall in… but luckily it never happened. I was, however, able to catch some outrageous dance moves as everyone had a blast dancing the night away. You have to see this one!

Clemson Fall Engagement Session | James + Alyssa

21 Nov 2016

I woke up to a very cold, rainy Sunday. Although we needed the rain badly, it meant having to reschedule James and Alyssa’s engagement session at Clemson. I made the call and they were quite optimistic it would clear up just in time for their shoot. I, on the other hand was much more skeptical. James and Alyssa graduated from Clemson last year and had since moved to Charlotte and were in town for a game that weekend, so it was especially convenient to do it that day, or risk losing the fall colors. Ultimately we decided to go for it! No risk, no return right?

We started off at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Clemson where James and Alyssa met years prior. And what about the weather? No rain, just beautiful hazy fall sunlight. We spent the next two hours exploring all around the Clemson University campus looking for beautiful light and the perfect colored fall leaves. And we were completely successful! Cheers!

Winner: 2016 Wedding Photographer of the Year!

The last few weeks have been really special for me. It’s like all the hard work I’ve been putting into my businesses and personal life have really been paying off. It all culminated at the National Association of Catering and Events Awards ceremony held in Greenville, SC on November 3rd, 2016. You see, months before we were nominated for the photographer of the year award they hand out each year. Along with six other photographers from North and South Carolina, we were nominated for this huge honor.

And… Well… It became a reality just a few nights ago!

My favorite thing about the whole thing was that I was sitting around a table surrounded by several other very talented photographers, all who were nominated for the same award. Rather than being competitive and talking smack about each other, we all just had a blast enjoying each other’s company and the fact that we were even nominated. It was a blur as I got several huge hugs from everyone at the table when they surprisingly called my name, and I’m pretty sure the same would have happened no matter who got the award in the end. That’s the best thing about the photography community, we are all so supportive of each other and have such a respect for what everyone else does, no matter their style.

I have to say, it’s an incredible honor to be trusted to capture so many weddings for so many incredible people. Even after 10 years, it’s something I don’t take lightly and, I’m amazed every day I get to wake up and capture those split second moments that say so much about the love people have for each other.

Cheers!
