Check out Kasey and Colie’s Citadel Beach House wedding from this past spring! I am still catching on blog posts since maternity leave and excited to finally share this gorgeous wedding. Kala of Mod Events did such a wonderful job with the design and coordination from this wedding. I just love the way the flowers were so delicately arranged in varying glass bottles and the coral and blush color scheme. Colie is a Citadel alumni and the couple were married at Sumerall Chapel on campus. They had a gospel choir sing as they walked through the traditional sword arch for such an epic grand exit as husband and wife! Then we headed over to the Citadel Beach House and out to the beach for some really dreamy portraits as the sun was starting to go down. These are definitely some of my favorite shots of the day. My amazing second shooter Cheyenne helped me to capture all the special details of this day!
I was so excited to get to see Reagan and Teddy again this year and take their Folly Beach family photos!! These two little cuties never disappoint. You can see how they have grown since our session last year here. We decided to head out to the edge of Folly this year and check out the light house to keep the twins entertained. l’m a sucker for the beautiful golden light at the point against the blues and greens of island. Enjoy the photos!
Check out this incredibly cute Hilton Head Island engagement session I shot last week in Hilton Head Island for Ashley and William! After a couple of failed attempts because of rainy summer weather we finally got a a beautiful evening on the beach for engagement photos. The sky was so colorful which lent itself to that really soft romantic feel that I love for couples photos. Ashley and William are to get married this coming April at Wexford Plantation and after this session I couldn’t be more excited. They are such a sweet and down to earth couple and incredibly easy to photograph. I love shooting weddings in Charleston but sometimes its nice to just hop in the car and getaway for a night or 2 and mix up the scenery a bit! I’m so happy for these two and can’t wait until their big day. Cheers!
How cute is James!? He is growing like a weed and seriously lights up the room with his smiles and giggles anytime you are around him. I know he’s my nephew so I am a little biased but he’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. This was the most no-fuss shoot and turned out to be one of my cutest yet. I shot James in one of of these adorable Serena and Lily baskets that they use for toy storage. The blues and whites against the simple white fencing and deck were a perfect combination to keep all the focus on sweet James and not detract from what we really wanted to capture: his new little expressions that are developing with each passing month. The last shot I setup in his nursery on his changing table and just love it. Every night when I come over to see the boys this is usually where I find James post bath time and I think it really captures an authentic sweet memory for my sister. All in all this session took about 25 minutes and was the perfect amount of time to keep this little 8 month old happy and engaged without overstimulating him. At this age usually less is more when it comes to sessions! Choosing simple clean setups resulted in some great shots that I know they will print and love forever.
I am so excited to share these gorgeous bridal portraits in Hampton Park on the blog. A couple of weekends ago I shot Kasey and Colie’s wedding at Summerall Chapel with their reception at The Citadel Beach House. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to share that soon! You can see their engagement photos taken downtown Charleston here as well! Kasey and I had to reschedule this bridal session what seemed like 200 times due to the finicky Charleston weather this spring. My goodness have we had a lot of rain. She was traveling in from North Carolina (we both grew up in the same small town of Rocky Mount!) Luckily the final date we chose the weather was absolutely gorgeous, the sunset was golden glowy perfection and the wisteria was dripping off the trees in Hampton Park. Pretty much a perfect session. A huge thanks to her awesome wedding planner Kala of Mod Events for the bouquet! I love shooting bridal portraits and Kasey did not disappoint and was so comfortable in front of the camera. If you would like to see the full session you can check it out here for all those brides looking for inspiration! Happy spring wedding season!
Check out this cute wedding at The Creek Club at I’on! Kristen and Chuck were married outside under the the gorgeous Oak on the property. Amanda of Southern Chic did a beautiful with the coordination and design of this wedding. It was elegant yet understated with simple greenery , gorgeous flowers & glowing lanterns. Kristen also added some cute personal touches with her guest book. She chose to use 3 wooden states that represented where the couple fell in love, got engaged and got married! I loved getting to know them during our engagement session in Hampton Park back in the Spring. Having that session prior to the wedding always makes the resulting couples photos so easy and natural. These are no exception, they are a gorgeous couple inside and out. Kristen and Chuck are both so down to earth and real. I especially enjoyed the rap Chuck included in his wedding gift to Kristen-hilarious. I had a blast getting to shoot this wedding. Kristen, Chuck, their families & friends partied the night away! There was no shortage of fun or laughter . Enjoy the photos and congratulations to the happy couple!~!
Check out this sweet Hampton Park engagement session! I am so excited for this Saturday and the wedding festivities for Kristen & Chuck! These are a few of my faves from their engagement session a couple of months ago. These two are so down to earth and there is just a certain ease about them which makes them so fun to photograph. I know their wedding this weekend at The Creek Club in I’on is going to be beyond beautiful. I freakin LOVE October weddings and the weather looks like it is going to be in our favor! Hampton Park is one of my favorite places for laid back wedding and portrait sessions. The park is dog friendly which is a huge plus for lots of my engagement sessions. How cute is their golden-doodle?! Olive may be getting a play mate realllll soon. Enjoy the photos & stay tuned for their wedding sneak peek soon!!
These photos of Kasey and Colie’s Downtown Charleston Engagement session make me so excited for April 18th. After having to reschedule our first scheduled shoot for rainy Charleston weather (shocker), we finally ended up with a beautiful sunny Saturday morning! These two were so much fun to work with, and so extremely easy to photograph. It was very humid out and the way the light played off the morning mist definitely made the photos in the park glow. Love that. Their wedding is being held at Summerall Chapel with the reception at the Citadel Beach House. I can’t wait to get some amazing shots of these two by the water at Isle of Palms! Colie is originally from Charleston and Kasey ironically enough is from my home town of Rocky Mount, North Carolina. When she first contacted me I was surprised to find out her family’s home was just a couple of blocks from mine. Small world! The two met while on their family vacations aboard a cruise ship that left out of the Charleston Harbor. I thought that was a really interesting “how we met” story…love finds us in the most unexpected places! Carnival Cupid? Who knew! Enjoy the photos!
