We spent Labor Day Weekend with several dear friends from college at my in-laws’ home in West Virginia. One evening, Bryan, Kate and I snuck away to snap some photos in celebration of their first baby. I could not be happier with what we captured in a few short minutes . . . the photos speak for themselves. Such love and joy in the anticipation of this baby boy’s arrival. I am so excited to meet him.
John and Jennifer spent their honeymoon exploring the beautiful city of Charleston, SC and decided that while here, it would be fun to preserve these fun memories of the first days of their marriage with a photo session. So glad that they chose me to be the one to capture these images. We had a blast.
Wow. It is HOT in the Lowcountry…let me tell you. And I happened to photograph Melanie and her sweet family on one of the hottest evenings yet while they were visiting on vacation. BUT – that did not stop us from getting some adorable family photos in historic downtown Charleston. Enjoy!
After four children and twenty-two years of marriage, Vickie and Scott decided to renew their vows at the Battery in downtown Charleston, SC. It was perfectly romantic and fairytale-like. Vickie arrived in a horse drawn carriage as her prince charming waited to see her. Their ceremony was simple and sweet. Just them and an officiant. Scott went off script during the vows – “you’re my best friend” – he said. After the ceremony we took some photos before they drove away in their carriage.
Enjoy some of my favorites.
I loved, LOVED, loved getting to be a part of Amber and Andy’s downtown Charleston, SC wedding. Amber has a fun and spunky personality that keeps her friends and Andy laughing. Plus, she and Andy are gorgeous together, so what’s not to love about that?
I started the day with the girls at a home in Mt. Pleasant before heading downtown for the ceremony at Bethel United Methodist Church. After the ceremony, a party bus took us to various spots in historic downtown Charleston before ending at the Francis Marion for their reception. I am thankful for Reese Moore who was my second shooter and amongst many things, photographed the guys getting ready while I was with the girls. Several of the shots in this post are hers.
As usual . . . my FAVORITE photos of the day, by far, are the portraits . . . and since my sweet husband recommended that I start with my favs, I am front loading them all to the beginning of this post. After you get to see the bride, groom and their wedding party throughout historic Charleston, then, you will see the day in the order that it unraveled.
