Nolan Wedding//Wildberry Farm

I always tell my couples that no wedding is perfect, and to get ready and not freak out when something goes wrong. But honestly , Melody & Tyler’s wedding was pretty close to perfect in my eyes!!

I met Melody in college and we’ve stayed in touch throughout the years. She would DM me on occasion and tell me “As soon as I get engaged, I’m booking you to shoot my wedding!” Well sure enough, the day after she got engaged, she messaged me about shooting her wedding! I was so honored and excited.

Their wedding was THE epitome of a perfect summer wedding. Sunflowers, blue skies, green grass, and a gorgeous sunset to end the day. Melody planned and decorated the entire thing, and honestly, she needs to become a wedding planner after seeing what she did at her wedding! Everything was so beautiful and intentional. She also got married at the same place I did, except she didn’t have any snow or freezing temperatures like I did at mine in January! Melody & Tyler, I truly was honored to be your photographer and witness such a beautiful day. You two TRULY are an Abercrombie & Fitch model couple ;)

Mallory & Grant//Engagement

Someone asked me the other day what my favorite type of sessions were to photograph, and they are simply the ones where the couples are madly in love. The couples who don’t focus on me being there, but focus on being with their loved one. And that is exactly what it was like photographing Mallory & Grant. They started dating when they were 13 (!!!) and have been together ever since. They are getting married in November and after hanging out with them, you can definitely tell their love is 10 years deep. Its effortless, genuine, and so beautiful. They texted me right before our session and told me to get ready, because they’re very awkward in front of the camera. Yet, the love they have together absolutely overshadowed their feelings of awkwardness.

Everyone gets nervous when a camera is 5 inches from their face. Yet, I’m not looking for you to be the best model or to pose perfectly. All I want is to document your love. The two of yall together. It doesn’t have to be perfect and posed. It just has to be real and genuine. And if you’re truly in love, you’ll be the best models ever, in my opinion ;)

Mallory & Grant, Im counting down the days till y’alls wedding & can’t wait to watch you become husband and wife and spend decades more together!!! x

Steve & Elisabeth//Anniversary

Its not very often that I get asked to shoot anniversary photos (which that should totally change), but let me tell you, they’re slowly becoming one of my favorite things!!! There’s something that’s unquietly special about photographing a bride and groom, moments after they’ve been pronounced husband and wife. There’s a newness and excitement that’s extremely magical on a wedding day. However, I think there is something so beautiful about photographing a couple thats been together for years and years. There is a oneness and a closeness that couples who have been married for a while have, that newly married couples don’t have yet. To witness that unity between husband and wife is SO beautiful and it makes me excited for the years that are to come for my husband and me.

Elisabeth & Steve were naturals in front of the camera and I had so much fun hanging out and making new friends! This year, they celebrated their 10th anniversary, which is amazing and should be celebrated JUST as much (if not more) as recently married couples! I also welcome any other anniversary sessions that are to come in future ;)

Bradley Wedding//Florence, SC

OH MY GOODNESS. This wedding. My first one of 2019 & the BEST way to start off a new year in my business. Not only are these two really good friends of mine, but they are also THE most attractive couple on the planet and they made my job SO easy.

Chase & Emily met about 7 years ago, but didn’t start hanging until about 2 years after that. Emily has 7 brothers, and Chase conveniently became friends with them and started hanging around their family more. One night, one of Emily’s brothers was on a first date in Charleston. Jokingly, Emily suggested that they go and crash his date, to which Chase & her other brother were all about! When they got home that night, Emily remembers Chase telling her how much he enjoyed spending time with her. And that was the start of their relationship.

They dated off and on for a few years, but all the while, God was working on their behalf. I love what Emily said about their dating relationship: “Its not the story I hoped for when I imagined how I would meet my prince charming as a girl. But it is a story full of grace, patience, forgiveness, growth and love. I'm glad that no matter how many times I freaked and pushed him away or vice versa he always came back. We always stayed friends.”

I think this is such a raw and real example of marriage, and our relationship with Jesus. Its not always perfect. It doesn’t always look like a romantic fairytale. Its not always rainbows and butterflies. But marriage is forever. Our relationship with Jesus is forever. They are eternal relationships that are full of grace & endurance. Goodness and hardships. Beauty and brokenness. But no matter what, Jesus is there. Our spouses are there. Arms open in love. Oftentimes, closeness comes through hardships. The harder the times, the closer you grow together. What a hopeful thing that is.

Emily & Chase, I couldn’t be more excited for yall and for your future together!! And on a real note, for all the beautiful babies yall will make one day ;) Marriage is amazing, and Im glad yall get to experience it together!!

A few fun facts about their wedding:

-Emily gave Chase a portrait that one of my previous brides PAINTED of them from one of their engagement photos and it was the BEST gift ever!

-Chase’s dad did the ceremony & it was the absolute sweetest, most genuine ceremonies.

-At the reception, Chase surprised Emily by singing and playing ‘You Are The Best Thing’ to her in front of everyone and OMG there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
