Heidi has been a childhood friend of mine for years and years, so photographing her wedding was such a joy. I met Thomas at his brother Matt's wedding the summer of 2016 while photographing his wedding & had no idea that 2 years later I would be photographing he and Heidi's wedding!
These two got married in Charleston on literally THE perfect day. It was sunny, not too hot, not too cold, and we got to watch the sun set over the marina. I was so excited when Heidi emailed me and said they wanted to do a first look. She said Thomas would be way more emotional if it was just the 2 of them, rather than in front of 140 people. So we met in a little alley way in downtown Charleston for their first look, and it was one of the sweetest I've ever witnessed. He cried and couldn't stop telling Heidi how beautiful she looked (I mean, could you blame him?!)
I felt more like a friend than the photographer at their wedding, which always makes my job feel like the opposite of work. I even got on the dance floor for a little while with my sweet husband, which someone picked up my camera & documented (picture below)! I was thrilled to be a part of the Odom's wedding day and even more thrilled that they are now living within "lets grab dinner tonight" distance away. Love you two, and I pray for your marriage often.
