I remember meeting up with Fleming and Chris while they were visiting Greenville for the week to plan their wedding. They were down from DC and I just casually mentioned how awesome it would be to do their engagement photos up there later this year. We had a wedding booked in early August and would be up there for a few days for that. Hopefully I could have a few free hours to break away and get to shoot in some of the incredible backdrops Washington DC provides. It was a long shot.

And it worked out beautifully. We started at the National Arboretum to shoot in their azalea garden and the famous national columns before heading over to the main attraction, the Jefferson Memorial. The Jefferson Memorial was one of the only monuments I hadn’t gotten to see up close before, and wow was it incredible. Solid marble with beautiful detailing and of course those epic columns. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to photograph at this epic location. Chris actually proposed to Fleming right on those very stairs, so it was especially fitting for them. They also looked the part with Fleming in a gorgeous formal dress and Chris in a tasteful suit jacket and pants. Definitely an amazing shoot I won’t ever forget!

When I first met with Stephanie and Hunter and asked them about how they got engaged they mentioned that it happened at the Conestee Nature Park, one of my favorite local spots to go for a quick run or walk. With miles of boardwalks, trails, a lake and a marshland there is definitely lots of nature to take in. It turned out to be an awesome choice! With all the trees and water, it definitely kept things much cooler as well as provided a gorgeous backdrop to capture their engagement session. Check it out!

Vietnamese Chinese Wedding at the Greenville Hellenic Center

I’m still completely stuffed from Minh and My Hanh’s wedding this past weekend. Yes I know that was a few days ago, but after 10 courses of gourmet Chinese & Vietnamese cuisine at their reception, its easy to understand why. Seriously some of the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding (which says a lot!).

So how was the rest of their wedding you ask? Well, it was a blast. With plenty of fun loving bridesmaids and groomsmen, some great music and dancing, and plenty of beautiful cultural touches during their reception at the Greenville Hellenic Center, it was definitely a memorable day. My Hanh sported three different dresses throughout the evening (including a gorgeous bright red one for most of the reception!) and Minh looked great in his custom fitted suit. The night ended with a beautiful sparkler exit as Minh and My Hanh ran off into the night. Check it out:

Hot Summer Engagement Session | Chloe + Julious

Sometimes my clients just really amaze me. I mean, common… if you photographed me in 100 degree heat, in a suit jacket for two hours… there is no way I could look as good as Chloe and Julious did. I didn’t even have to photoshop any sweat out! I’m not sure how they did it, or if they just sweat only on the inside, but we pulled off an incredible shoot even with the triple digit temperatures. Julious and Chloe (and their entourage of family that came along) were so much fun to work with that it made my job so easy. I’m curious to see if it can get any better for their wedding next May when the weather is actually decent! Until then, enjoy these photos:
