Everyone knows that one of the biggest parts of photography is lighting. Got a great composition and great subject… but have boring lighting? You don’t have an interesting shot. Light trumps all. The actual definition of photography is to write with light, so when I’m out shooting that’s always the first thing I look for.

Sometimes this is harder than other times, and I have to admit I got a bit spoiled during Jeremy and Danielle’s shoot. I didn’t have to look too hard at all to find great light. It was literally everywhere, pouring through the amazing fall colors and igniting the sky with one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in a long time. Add in a fun loving couple that isn’t afraid to explore around a bit and you’ve got all the makings of a great engagement session. Congrats again Jeremy and Danielle!

The tears were beginning to flow, and they hadn’t even seen each other yet. As they stood on either side of the door, reading the letters they brought for each other, it hit them; In a few short moments they would be married. Sure enough, Katy slowly walked down the isle of Pretty Place Chapel and was united to Brandon forever. Soon after, we were on our way to a gorgeous reception at Zen filled with dancing, speeches, and plenty of great food and drinks.

Forest Themed Wedding at Zen Greenville | Maria + Keith

Maria’s and Keith’s forest themed wedding at Zen was hands down one of the best weddings I’ve been to all year. Why you ask? Not only did they step out of the box and do a theme I haven’t actually seen at a wedding before, but they really embraced it. Mushroom wedding cake, fungus candles, twisted wood centerpeices, and an incredibly unique bouquet that wouldn’t look right at any other wedding. Loved it! But I think what made the wedding even better was the personalities of Maria and Keith. I don’t think there is much in life that can prevent these guys from having a good time. Dress partially catches on fire coming down the isle? No problem! Dramatically fall over during the first dance? Laugh it off! But it wasn’t all problems that made their wedding special. The bond these two share is pretty obvious to anyone within 50 feet of them. They share an awesome sense of humor and a craving for the unordinary that is infectious from across the room.

Stunning Bridal Portraits at City Scape Winery | Katy

It’s been a long couple months since I shot Katy’s bridals, but now since she is finally married I can let a few more people see them. I’ve been excited about these for a few reasons, biggest of which, we got to shoot at a place very special to me: City Scape Winery.

We’ve been coming there pretty routinely ever since we moved to South Carolina about five years ago. The owners there taught us how to make wine, supplied all the wine for our rehearsal dinner last year, and have generally become good friends of ours. They have an awesome property down in Pelzer that not only includes dozens of rows of grape vines, but also some goats. Add in some gorgeous weather, a stunning bride, and a celebratory glass of wine, and I can’t think of too many better photoshoots I’ve been to.
