The truth is I’m really not all that funny, but my couples are just THAT happy! Kate & David are absolutely ADORABLE! This is one of my favorite Charleston fine art engagement sessions to date simply because this couple is so undeniably happy! It was wonderful to finally meet them.  This was our third attempt at photographing their engagement session!  We were rained out the first time and invaded by a snow bomb cyclone the second attempt. Props to these guys for being flexible and patient!  It was totally worth the wait because we got the most gorgeous day for an engagement session!  I’m so thrilled that I’ll be spending more time with these guys on their wedding day this fall at the gorgeous Westin Hilton Head Island Resort.  Congrats guys!  I’m so happy for you!

I was absolutely honored to have the opportunity to photograph this Lowndes Grove wedding inspiration design by Tristan Needham Design!  It’s basically impossible this time to point out a favorite element in this design.  Flowers are always my obsession, so let’s start there.  Ginny with Enemies of the Average designed some of the most gorgeous florals I’ve ever photographed!!  Also amazing was what I am calling a “fine art” cake provided by Tessa Pinner, who is a true artist!!  Also a stunner was this gorgeous gown by BHLDN.  It was truly elegant and understated.

I was absolutely honored to have the opportunity to photograph this Swan House wedding inspiration shoot!  Atlanta is my home town and sadly I never got the chance to photograph at the Swan House before our big move to Charleston!  So a long time dream was realized last month when I got the opportunity to photograph a styled shoot planned and designed by Heather Benge Events, named one of the top 50 wedding planners in the world!  Flowers are always my obsession and Lisa with Thorne and Thistle designed some of the most amazing florals I’ve ever photographed!!  Also amazing were the cakes provided by A Joy Cakes, who created one of the most stunning wedding cakes I’ve ever seen!!  This was an amazing team and one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever photographed! Enjoy this wedding inspiration!

Congrats to Meredith & Jesse on their engagement this past spring down at Folly Beach!  We’ve been looking forward to their Gadsden House engagement pics for such a long time!  These guys have a really tight schedule, so making sure that we had a stunning indoor space for pictures was an absolute must! After meeting them and their adorable chocolate lab, Nala, it’s going to be so hard to wait until summertime for their wedding day!  It was also wonderful to catch up with Allison from Charleston Weddings by Allison today too!  She did a great job keeping us on track, and I’m so excited to see what gorgeousness she dreams up for the wedding day!  I couldn’t be happier for these fun loving sweethearts!

Katie’s bridal shower was the absolute sweetest!!!  Katie’s dear friends, Andrea & Sierra, gathered Katie’s closest friends for a flower crown bridal shower!  Andrea opened her lovely home where we had the most amazing view of the water while we enjoyed brunch on the back deck.  We had the best time with Molly from Fetes de Fleurs who guided us through the entire process of making these adorable crowns!  We enjoyed making our own unique drinks from the Prosecco bar and devoured chicken with Belgium waffles provided by Sweet Belgium!  And we finished off the afternoon with this fun cake by So Sweet!  Andrea went with greenery for the table and a lovely floral garland for the wicker chair centerpiece.  These beauties came from Charleston Flower Market.  It couldn’t have been a more perfect afternoon with friends that I love in the prettiest setting!!
