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 ;)

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.

Todd Wedding//Greenville,SC

Some weddings, I just feel really really blessed to be a part of, I feel like God ordained just because He knew id love the couple, and I walk away from with tears in my eyes out of gratitude. THIS was one of those weddings for me.

Darby & Jimmy are some of the most fun, Jesus loving, hard working, smart and genuine people. They both come from really awesome families, are both in the medical field, and both have a heart for medical missions. I remember we were walking through the woods on Darby’s parent’s property during their engagement session as they were telling me all about themselves and I thought, “wow these are some pretty incredible people". That thought was continually confirmed over the next few months leading up to their wedding day.

Darby pulled me aside the morning of their wedding and told me that she and Jimmy met on this day, exactly 1000 days ago! They waited a long time for this day, and it was well worth it.

Watching the love these two have for each other, the Lord, their family and friends was truly beautiful. I remember I was taking photos of Darby by herself after the ceremony, and Jimmy couldn’t stop complimenting her. Their day was all about glorifying God and loving on their friends and family. Photographing their wedding was refreshing to my soul and made me extra thankful that God allowed me to meet these two and be a part of their special day.

Abbey + David//Wedding

Abbey & David got married on a blazing hot July afternoon, but boy was it a GORGEOUS wedding. These two met in middle school and have been in each other's lives ever since. They are some of the most grateful, laid back, & caring people. I went to school with Abbey's sister - in - law, so I was already familiar with their family before the wedding. But getting to spend time with all of them during the months leading up to the wedding was super special. I love going into wedding days already having a friendship with the couple & their family. Their wedding was so dang FUN and Abbey is hands down the best dancer of any bride I've ever photographed ;) Here are a few of my favorite moments from their wedding day!
