I distinctly remember our driving back up to Greenville from Charleston after a very relaxing vacation last July. As the miles ticked by on our journey up I-26, I remembered seeing a sign for Monck’s Corner and thought to myself… don’t these people know how to spell “monk.” I mean seriously, it’s 4 letters, its really not that complicated of a word… we must be in the middle of nowhere. A few days went by and sure enough, I got an email from Hope asking me if I’d be interested in shooting her wedding in Monck’s Corner. After a thoroughly entertaining conversation on the phone we decided we were a good fit and next thing you know, I’m down in Monck’s Corner at Mepkin Abbey shooting their wedding. And what a gorgeous setting, with spanish moss swinging from the 100+ year old live oak trees overhead, and a cool breeze off the nearby lake, the stage was set for a beautiful day.

Stunning Wedding at the Crest Center in Asheville, NC

What a gorgeous spring we have been having so far this year! I guess we earned it after such a cold winter and rainy summer last year, which probably also makes it feel even better than it really is. Either way, this is my absolute favorite time of year. And Heather and Joe got married on my favorite weekend of the year. Why is that? Because we also got married the same weekend just two years ago.

Their day was absolutely stunning. Standing up in front of all their family and friends with picturesque views of the blue ridge mountains rolling behind them, it was hard not to be excited. They were getting married, with or without a very pesky veil which tried to steal the show during the ceremony. After an emotional ceremony, a small cake meltdown, some very personal speeches were made, and the party started… and didn’t die down all night. Partying under the gorgeous lights and decor of the Crest Center, it was the perfect start for Heather and Joe’s life together.

Usually one of the first things a bride and groom will tell me after their wedding was just how quick it went. While I’ll usually agree with them, most weddings really do fly by. Kristi and Travis’s wedding didn’t just fly by, you honestly couldn’t have gone to the bathroom and back in the time their ceremony took. I timed it… 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Faster than even the courthouse wedding I shot last year!

Well I guess, when you know, you know. And by the time you are standing at the alter, you better know! Kristi and Travis definitely didn’t have much time to second guess their decision, but even if they had more time, I know it wouldn’t have changed their minds. These two are absolutely enamored with each other.

A Surprise Falls Park Proposal | Philip + Elisa

As we sat at our table at Passerelle Bistro, I couldn’t help but feel like a pair of Russian spies. You see, we had been watching Philip and Elisa out of the corner of our eye as we snacked on some fresh croissants, waiting for Philip to get up and take Elisa out of the restaurant for a little walk around falls park. The wait grew longer and longer, and I could see Philip starting to nervously play with his napkin as the check came. She had no idea what was going to happen. Finally, they were off, with us trailing them shortly behind, armed with enough camera gear to photograph a small army. My wife, Debra, was there as my decoy in case we were spotted, a beautiful subject for the portrait session I would pretend to shoot as I watched Philip and Elisa out of the corner of my eye. We followed them to the waterfall undetected.. when all of a sudden, it happened.
