Kelsey’s 701 Whaley Bridal Portraits in Columbia, SC

I’ve shot a lot of bridal sessions, but this one blew me away. This first picture is probably my favorite picture of the entirety of 2016. 701 Whaley is an awesome warehouse style venue in Columbia, SC with tons of space and massive amounts of natural light. It’s a dream to shoot there and to top it all off, Kelsey had a fantastic dress that had a huge train so we could do a lot of cool stuff with it. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Nic & Kinley’s Historic Charleston Engagement Session

Engagement sessions are arguably one of the most important things you can do to ensure you have awesome wedding photos. Unless you’re a model, most people are unfamiliar with the process of being in front of the camera and possibly a bit nervous about it, so the engagement session really gives you the opportunity to get comfortable with how I work and it also gives me the opportunity to get to know you both a little better and figure out what you like and don’t like as far as photos go. Plus they’re a lot of fun! Our sessions are super relaxed and we do our absolute best to get you comfortable with the process so you can focus on being with your fiance and just ignore the camera!
Nic and Kinley absolutely killed their session though! I’m so excited to be working with them this coming June.

Katie and Ben’s Legare Waring House Wedding

Charleston has some notoriously difficult to shoot ceremony locations: churches with strict rules and bad lighting, parks with mottled sun that makes getting flattering light nearly impossible, and Legare Waring House in November – where It gets dark. Fast. Ceremonies can only begin after Charles Towne Landing, the park surrounding Legare Waring, closes, which happens to be at 5pm. This is all well and good in the summer, but in November when the sun sets at 5:15 it can become a bit of an issue if you’re not prepared. Luckily for us though, the fantastic planning by Janet from JVM Events and some new fast lenses it made the fading light a non-issue. Katie and Ben’s wedding proves beyond a shadow of a doubt (pun intended) that having a great planner and a great team at the center of your day can make any potential problem work for your wedding.

 

I’m really excited to share this one with everyone! Katie and Ben were honestly some of the most genuine and kind people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting – and their wedding was absolutely fabulous. Best of luck to both of you!

Colleen and Matt’s Lowndes Grove Wedding

 

This wedding was a dream. Between the amazing planning and coordination by Janet Meister from JVM Events, the fantastic team of vendors that made the day run so smoothly and of course Colleen and Matt being entirely too much fun to work with, this one was really, really good. It’s also a bit of a departure from my normal color only style. Lowndes Grove just lends itself to being shot in black and white so I had to throw a few into the mix. I’d love to know what everyone thinks since it’s something a little different for us.

Adam and Rebecca’s Founder’s Hall Wedding Portraits

This first photo is probably one of my favorites in a long time. I had to lie face down in the dirt, balancing half of my body over the marsh while at the same time putting my elbow into an ant hill, but I absolutely think it was worth it. I really apologize to everyone because this is going to be plastered all over my site for a while.

Cameron and Brian’s Dunes West Golf Club Wedding

          It’s been a while since I’ve posted a full wedding story, but it’s definitely well worth the wait. This is actually one of the easiest blog posts I’ve created because everything flowed together so well! Dunes West Golf Club has got to be one of the best places in all of Charleston to catch the sunset so it plays perfectly into our style – hopefully we’ll be back soon!
          I want to extend a huge thank you to Allison from Charleston Weddings by Allison for making everything run perfectly. Great planners really do make our job so much easier!
