I have to admit, I’m usually not the most excited photographer in the world when the bride’s mom decides to tag along with the couple to their engagement session. No offense, but sometimes it can just be awkward to be all lovey-dovey with mom lurking behind the nearest tree.

Being a photographer herself, Kelsey’s mom decided to tag along to their engagement session last week. “Oh boy, not this again… she isn’t going to follow us around the ENTIRE time… is she?” I said (in my head of course), but it actually turned out to be quite the opposite. It was like having a little cheerleader follow me around: “ooo that photo is INCREDIBLE!” … “oh my God! How did you do that!?” … “look at that lighting! I would never seen that!” … “Kelsey! Look at this shot he just took, you look gorgeous!” Naturally, Kelsey and Chris got a kick out of the whole situation, and we had a blast wandering around on a beautiful fall day snapping photos, discussing photo tips, and just enjoying everyone’s company. Maybe I’ll have to change my mind about mom’s coming along!

Rachel and Linzy’s wedding in Cashiers, North Carolina was the perfect way to end our wedding “busy season.” With the ceremony held at the historic Church of the Good Shepherd, and their parent’s summer home just a short drive away, it was an intimate celebration with just their closest family and friends attending. Naturally, being up in the mountains we totally took advantage of the beautiful scenery. With the absolutely stunning High Hampton Inn just across the road, we stopped over just before sunset to capture some incredible portraits of the two of them. Guests gathered back at their parent’s home for plenty of excellent food and dancing. It all ended with a beautiful sparkler laced exit as they sped away in the back of a BMW convertible.

Fall Morning Engagement Shoot | Katie + Brett

I always love to hear about what my couples do for a living. We’ve had plenty of nurses, engineers, doctors, students, and a few teachers here and there. But with close to 200 weddings photographed, I don’t think I’ve ever done a wedding for someone that is a wine distributor (past couples, correct me if I’m wrong!). It was fascinating to hear how wine gets from wineries all over the world, to a distributor, to a local store, and eventually into my glass at dinner. Of course we talked about how Deb and I make wine, and would love to eventually sell it someday. In between all the discussion we had a great time running around snapping some beautiful shots on a beautiful morning right in the middle of peak fall colors.

Stunning Fall Engagement Session | Christi + Nick

You know it’s a small world when someone contacts you, and after talking for awhile, you find out that you actually went to the same high school… 800+ miles away! When Deb and I were meeting with Christi and Nick to chat about photographing their wedding next year, it dawned on us that Kristi was from Albany, NY, and not only that, but the same exact area of Albany that Debra was from! They actually passed each other in the hallways during High School!

They had made the journey down to the beautiful south just a few years after we did, had fallen in love (with Greenville & each other), and are now getting married! The shoot couldn’t have gone any better. We met up on an absolutely stunning fall day to capture their engagement photos, chat about how awesome Greenville is, and share some drinks at Grill Marks in a city we both fell in love with.
