I really enjoyed photographing Mina and her sweet family! Yazin could not be cuter and now they’ve just added another sweet little boy to the bunch. Enjoy these photos we captured at Hampton Park in downtown Charleston, SC.
. . . your mommy, daddy and big brother Noah cannot wait to meet you! You are treasured and your arrival is anticipated with much joy and love.
Their day was truly special. It was filled with love, lots of laughter, dancing, and friends and family who were so excited to celebrate Ian and Jenna becoming husband and wife. These two started dating in their teen years . . . they attended many school dances together, celebrated 10 birthdays (each), enjoyed college years and first jobs and even a move across the ocean to Hawaii together . . . before tying the knot. Their love is fun and sweet and real. And I could not be happier to be their cousin, friend and the one who got to capture their love this day!

This post comes at a sad time in our family, we lost our Grandmama – Jane Whiteside, the center of our family, earlier this week. As one beautiful soul passes on to Heaven, our family awaits the arrival of two new beautiful ones. My cousin Elizabeth Jane is pregnant with a baby boy and a baby girl. Our grandmother lived long enough to know the joy that would be upon us come early 2016 – and she was so excited for Liz and Trad.
A snowy rain storm brought these two together as they sought refuge under an awning in downtown Charleston, SC. That was February 2010, the first time they met. A year later they would start dating and four years later, Sean would ask Amanda to marry him under that same awning. It was only appropriate that their wedding day happened to fall on a weekend full of rain – the weekend of the 1000 year flood. Thankfully, instead of getting married in Charleston, where they live, they decided to get married in Savannah, GA – a place near and dear to Amanda’s heart. And while it was pretty overcast and rainy most of the day, the weather dried up enough to allow for us to sneak over to Forsyth Park during the reception for some gorgeous portraits of the newly weds.
This was another one of those weddings where I starred over 150 photos to share. After going through them over and over again, I narrowed it down to less, but still a lot. I hope you enjoy every moment of looking at this beautiful day. As usual, I will start with some of my favorite portraits and then go to the beginning of the day. Vendors are listed at the bottom of the post.
Congratulations Amanda and Sean! Thank you for entrusting me to preserve the moments of your wedding day!
