Intimate Backyard Wedding in Columbia, SC | Edward + Mary Etta

I can’t even imagine how couples feel who planned to get married this spring. Everyone’s world has been rocked because of the coronavirus and the government shutdowns, but man, the event industry took a big hit—events that have been in the making for years have been completely cancelled, changed, or rescheduled—including wedding days.

I don’t photograph models.

I don’t photograph models.  You’ve probably never wondered whether or not I photograph models, but it’s an interesting thing to think about right? Sure, some of my clients have a modeling past or are just naturally good in front of a camera, but for the most part—the people I photograph are just like me and […]
