It’s wild how fast the leaves change this type of year. It was just a week ago when I was shooting an engagement session in downtown Greenville and the leaves had barely started to change, and now, one week later, it’s a completely different story.

Kristen and Derek (and a few of their friends) met up with me last week to capture their engagement photos, chat about their wedding, and of course, enjoy the fall colors. The weather was absolutely perfect, but the sky was absolutely outstanding, with some of the coolest looking clouds I’ve seen all year. Of course we took advantage and had a lot of fun doing it. Enjoy!

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about doing an engagement session out at Clemson University. A lot of the college campus’s I’ve been on before are just kinda… blah. A sea of nondescript brick buildings surrounded by parking lots and smelly college students.

Clemson University was actually quite the opposite. Filled with some pretty cool architecture, plenty of park like-settings, 40-foot cascading fountains, and a towering stadium, it was the perfect place to capture Jillian and Cameron’s engagement photos. Although it has changed a bit in the few years since they graduated from Clemson, it was awesome to hear all the stories of how they met there and what things they did to pass the time in between classes. Enjoy the photos!

I love when people bring me out to new places to shoot engagement sessions, and Lauren and Mike didn’t just bring me to one, or two, but four different locations for their engagement shoot. We hopped into their car and headed for some different spots they had seen just driving around near their parent’s home in Taylors. Some places had sprawling fields, beautiful mountain backdrops, rustic barns, and secluded ponds. Each was beautiful in their own way and a blast to explore. Looking forward to the wedding next year!

Bald Head Island Shoals Club Wedding | Mike + Siobhan

This past weekend I had the incredible privilege to capture a wedding I have been looking forward to for a long, long time. Almost as long as Mike and Siobhan themselves! I first got to know Mike and Siobhan when they first moved to Greenville and watched as they got closer, bought a house together, got a dog together, got engaged, got another dog together, and then started to plan their wedding at the Bald Head Island Shoals Club. You may also recognize Mike and Siobhan, as they were our “newly engaged couple” during our wedding photography workshops we held earlier this year.

We arrived at Bald Head Island a couple days early so we could celebrate with them during the pre-wedding festivities. Between hanging out with some of our best friends, meeting some new ones, enjoying plenty of great food and drinks, having late night bonfires on the beach, and enjoying the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets that come along with Bald Head Island living, it was an incredible way to kick off the wedding weekend. While the setting is definitely gorgeous, Bald Head Island isn’t just another pretty place to Mike and Siobhan, it’s a huge part of their history together. They originally met on the beach while on vacation there a little over 5 years ago, got engaged there last year, and have since spent many weekends vacationing there.

After years of anticipation, the wedding day was finally upon us. We showed up early to get some shots of Siobhan getting into her dress before heading over to the Bald Head Island Shoals Club to capture their first look. After venturing out onto the beach to grab a few bridal party shots, it was time for their ceremony. Plenty of tears, beautiful scenery, and hilarious moments gave way to a picturesque sunset just before their reception kicked off. Together with plenty of thoughtful details, the Shoals Club looked absolutely stunning and gave the perfect backdrop for guests to enjoy a beautiful indoor/outdoor reception overlooking the ocean. A few thoughtful speeches, some pretty intense Irish dancing (that was a first!), and plenty of great food and drinks lead us to their glow stick exit and golf-cart-roadster getaway. Enjoy the photos!
