Poinsett Club Downtown Greenville SC Wedding | Lauren + Ben

22 Sep 2013

September weddings are some of my favorite of the year. The heat is (mostly) left behind, and the days start to get a bit shorter (meaning more time with better lighting). Plus you can start incorporating those awesome fall colors into the palette. Lauren and Ben were married this past weekend at the newly refurbished Easley Presbyterian Church (love the new fountain!) and held their absolutely stunning reception at Poinsett Club in Downtown Greenville. Once the nervousness subsided, and the ceremony was over, the fun began. This reception had everything, from the shot-dance, to some very intimate speeches, to Ben getting up on stage to rock out with the Travis Allison Band, everyone had a good time. Congrats again!

Falls Park Engagement Session | Lindsey + Colby

20 Sep 2013

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of shooting in Falls Park. Sure I’ve probably shot there over a hundred times, but each time it’s different. Whether that’s exploring a different part of the park, shooting with different lighting that day, a different time of year, or just a different couple, there is always something that keeps it interesting. Lindsey and Colby definitely had a lot going on for their shoot at Falls Park this past weekend. Between a couple different outfits, some high intensity yoga instructors scattered throughout the park, and some beautiful blue skies, we were able to make some pretty excellent images that really showcase the awesome bond these two share. Can’t wait for the wedding!

Keowee Key Country Club Wedding | Hannah + Cory

11 Sep 2013

As I was laying in bed the night before Hannah and Cory’s wedding I felt something I hadn’t felt in awhile: I was nervous. After shooting over 140 weddings over the past eight years, I have to admit, the feeling doesn’t come around much anymore. I know my gear, I know my settings, I have several layers of backup plans for everything. But this wasn’t like the nervousness I used to feel before photographing my first few weddings, this was more of an excited/energetic nervousness. Like something really big was going to happen the next day.

And this wedding has a lot of stuff to be excited about. Not only were Hannah and Cory a blast to work with on their engagement session, we had the gorgeous backdrops of Keowee Key Country Club, and (best of all) it was actually sunny out for a change! Add on top of that some stunning decor, hilarious bridal parties, an absolutely gorgeous bride, and a huge set of loving family and friends. My feelings the night before were right, this was going to be one heck of a wedding.
