Wow has this been an awesome week or what! First, I get word that I’ve won the bride’s choice award for 2012. And today I get featured on Southern Weddings Magazine’s Blog.

You can checkout some of the photos I took of the Bow Tie Napkins from Katie’s Wedding at Table Rock Lodge that were featured here: http://iloveswmag.com/2012/01/12/southern-spotting-bow-tie-napkins/. Katie did such an awesome job putting together all the little details for her wedding that I only knew it was a matter of time before they got picked up by a magazine.

Wow what a way to kick start a year! Here’s for 2012 so far!

High Cotton Greenville SC Wedding | Genny and Neil

01 Jan 2012

I stood in the Sanctuary for what seemed like forever. Genny and Neil were supposed to be having their first sighting. Genny was there but where was Neil. Did he take off last second? No. He couldn’t have, at least I hope not. So we waited some more. Just me and Genny. Oh, and a really big present. A present that Genny told me was very, very, special to her.

Genny and Neil held their ceremony at Trinity United Methodist Church here in Greenville SC, with an absolutely beautiful reception at High Cotton downtown. It was a day filled with emotion. A beautiful ceremony with a stunning ending. Check out some of my favorites from the day:

Neil did finally show up. And what was his present? A Buffet R-13 Prestige made in 1987. This clarinet has a bit of history including multiple performances in Carnegie Hall.

NYC Christmas

Alright I think I have a small addiction to New York City. Ever since my bachelor party (thanks Chris!) up there last month I was hooked. It was nothing like when I went as a kid. There is just so much to see and waste spend money on!

Naturally I was pretty pumped to head back up there for Christmas. I’m from upstate NY but my lovely fiance is from the city so I decided to take a year off from visiting upstate and hit up NYC to meet her extended family. It also happens that my wedding photographer is based out of NYC. Of course we had to take advantage. We setup some time to do some engagement photos with the city skyline. Now I can say I know what its like to be on the other side of the camera. It’s definitely a lot warmer and a lot more cuddly (and kinda fun!).

Between eating some excellent Italian, Octopus, Thai, and Seafood we unrapped some pretty excllent presents. Its hard to beat that! I even did a very impromptu mini pre-engagement shoot with my soon to be sister her boyfriend! Here are a few shots from the trip!
