Magnolia Plantation Engagement on Film in Charleston, SC | Thao + John

I have been talking to Thao for over a year now about her wedding, and I just couldn’t WAIT to officially meet her! (And John too!) We went back and forth for a while trying to figure out the perfect spot for their engagement pictures, and MAN did we hit the jackpot. I am SO […]

Now Booking: 2019 Christmas Mini Sessions!

Normally I start off the blog post announcing these sessions by saying, “It’s that time of year again!” but this year…I’m a little early. (: I’m basically pulling a Hobby Lobby—worse I guess, because I haven’t seen them pull out the Christmas decor yet. (Although now that July 4th is past us, I bet it’s […]

A Session of Film Firsts: Family, Indoor, Black & White

I’ve been shooting in film now for about 2 years. This past year I’ve shot most of my bridal and engagement sessions in 100% film. I don’t even bring my digital camera. I just LOVE film. But this session had a lot of firsts! It was my first time doing an entire family session in […]

A Rainy Pine Island Wedding | Zach + Kaitlynn

I got SO EXCITED for a beautiful wedding on the lake at Pine Island when I showed up for Kaitlynn’s bridal portraits and saw how beautiful it was there. But when her wedding day came, it ended up POURING down rain a few hours before the ceremony was supposed to start. Forecasts were calling for […]

Now Booking: NEW! Video Sessions

I absolutely love hosting mini portrait sessions ever year in November. It’s a great opportunity for families to get new portraits made for their Christmas cards, or just some updated photos of their kiddos. About a year ago, I had the idea of creating little video time capsules put on my heart, and I am […]

A Garden Engagement Session in Columbia, SC | Evans + Anna

I’ve done many bridal sessions at these beautiful gardens in Columbia, but this was my first engagement session here and I was so excited about it! When I walked up to the gardens at the start of the session, the gates were LOCKED. We couldn’t get in! Closed for a private event, the sign said. […]

Plantation Home Engagement Session in Effingham, SC | Matt + Helen

What originally started out as portraits on the beach ended up being the most beautiful morning at a plantation home in a town I had never even heard of. I didn’t know there were so many small-town gems in South Carolina! A few years ago I got to photograph a few different engagement sessions and […]

Pine Island Bridal Portraits | Kaitlynn

I was looking forward to this session from the moment we decided to do it at Pine Island. But when the day came, I was extremely sick. I was 4 months postpartum, and two weeks post getting my appendix taken out, and I had mastitis from nursing. (For those who don’t know—mastitis is like having […]

Wavering Place Wedding in Columbia, SC | Gibb + Macayla

A while back I told Macayla that May is the perfect time to get married, and that the weather would be beautiful. (I got married in May, so I’m a little bias!) But South Carolina weather cannot be trusted. Haha! The first day of the brutal heat of summer fell on Macayla + Gibb’s wedding […]
