This wedding was a really special one for Debra and I. As some of you may know, in addition to wedding photography we also own and run a small winery and vineyard in southern Greenville county called City Scape Winery. While we have been photographing weddings for 11 years, we just started hosting smaller weddings at our winery earlier this year.

When we met Sarah and Evan earlier this year, it became clear that it was a natural fit for us both as a venue and on the photography end. With their great sense of humor and laid back approach to life, we knew it was going to be an amazing collaboration! They had this great idea of doing a Farm to Table dinner style wedding for just their very closest family and friends. We typically tent the space, but they really wanted that open air feel, so after we checked the weather, we decided to go for it! It couldn’t have gone better. With plenty of that beautiful early fall weather, it was just so refreshing to be there with everyone in the vineyard. Sarah got ready in our bridal space next door and walked down beside the vineyard where they said their vows. After an emotional ceremony we took some time to explore the vineyards and waterfalls at nearby Cedar Falls Park as the sun set. Then came cocktail hour and an incredible 4 course farm-to-table style dinner catered by Seasons Catering, paired with some of our local city scape wines. It was a beautiful night filed with laughter, great people, and incredible food – and one I won’t ever forget. Just as their marriage symbolizes two people joining, it was also a marriage of our love of photography and our new venture at the winery. Cheers!

I’ll never forget walking into Katherine and Britt’s wedding reception. I had shot dozens of weddings at the Westin before, but never have I seen something that stunning and elegant. Tall candelabras contrasted perfectly with beautiful fresh flower displays, tasteful linens, and a beautiful professional lighting setup complete with projected leaves on the ceiling and animated monogrammed dance floor. Of course, all this beautiful decor wouldn’t be complete without an amazing bride and groom. Thankfully we had the incredibly sweet and kind Katherine and Britt to fill these roles.

As everyone gathered at the beautiful Cliffs at Glassy chapel earlier in the day, they were greeted by the sounds of a bagpipe player; a tasteful nod to their heritage. After an emotional ceremony we spent the next moments creating some incredible shots on the rocky mountain top next to the chapel. Memories captured, we headed to the Westin Poinsett Room for their beautiful reception filled with lots of great dancing, food, and a sparkler exit into a horse-drawn carriage.

Brantley and Richard | 10 Years Later Anniversary Shoot

It’s always an honor when other photographers ask me to photograph them, but it was extra special to shoot for Brantley and Richard a few days ago for their 10th anniversary. Being wedding photographers themselves for 7 years down in the Columbia area, they certainly know the love, energy, and hard work that goes into making incredible images. We met up at the Hampton Inn in downtown Greenville, and explored a bunch of the off-the-beaten-path places I’ve discovered over the last 10 years. Despite the cloudy day, we were still able to find some amazing light and capture some great moments.

I loved getting to meet up with power couple Raven and Justin at City Scape Winery for their engagement session last week. These guys are so much fun to be around, and Raven may just be the most talented lady in heels I’ve ever seen (with a little help from Justin). We had a blast exploring all around the winery and nearby Cedar Falls Park capturing some amazing moments along the way.
