13 May 2012

You know those people that always have a smile on their face? Jamie and Richard are the type of people that have fun no matter where they go. Their love for each other (and chickens/dogs) is contagious. We had a blast running around falls park and at their family home. Cannot wait for your wedding guys!

Savannah Georgia Wedding Photography | Ariel & Phillip’s Backyard Wedding

10 May 2012

I knew Ariel & Phillip’s wedding would be special. Yes it was in Savannah, GA which is a place I’ve always wanted to visit (spanish moss rocks!). But more importantly, it was the fact that it was the first wedding that I could really FEEL. After all, just TWO weeks earlier it was me on the other side of the camera. As Ariel stood there waiting to see Phillip for the first time, I could FEEL the tension and excitement that I felt just weeks before. And it was addicting.

Ariel and Phillip had a gorgeous backyard wedding just outside of Savannah, GA. It was a beautiful day filled with Spanish Moss, dancing, hanging lights, and tons of handmade details. Add in a couple that is totally head over heals in love with each other and you’ve got a perfect day. Thank you both again for having me document your wedding!

A special thanks to the following vendors:

Dress: Frills & Fancies
Flowers: Danny & Susan Horne
Cake: Debbie Cakes
Catering: Springfield Traditions
Rentals: Fairy Tale Tent & Party Rentals

Ryan + Jen | Engagement Shoot

09 May 2012

There something about shooting this time of year that I love. Maybe its the fact that its not too hot (sometimes), or the fact that we have some really long sunsets with really amazing light. Well the day I met Ryan and Jen was one of those really long sunset kinda days. You know the ones where you just want to sit outside all night. Just happens that those really long sunset days aren’t just romantic, they are amazing to shoot during. Couple that with a fun loving couple and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an awesome engagement session. Thanks again for having me guys!

Thanks again! Can’t wait for the wedding!!

Huguenot Loft Wedding | Holly and James are Married!

01 May 2012

There we were. At their beautiful wedding at the Huguenot Loft in downtown Greenville, SC.

“My very dear Holly, What will our first shared moment be like? It’s a thought that crosses my mind more and more.” ~ October 18th, 2010

James wrote that to Holly back when they were merely penpals. James was studying abroad in Barcelona. Holly was in Clemson. They handwrote letters back and forth for months even though they had never met. A few months later, they finally did.

“James, You bring more joy to my life than I ever knew was possible and you have done all of it though letting me into your heart and mind.” ~ March 20, 2011

Fast forward one year. Surrounded by loving family, close friends, and banana pudding, they were married at the beautiful Huguenot Loft in Greenville, SC. A dream come true.
