Anna & Jacob: Romantic Wedding in Anderson, SC

I loved the southern charm and all of the little details of this wedding that made it so special. Anna's parents are as classy as can be, and Jacob's parents are SO fun. The whole day was a family affair! Four of the five groomsmen were related to the bride or groom, Anna's grandmother played the piano and sang during the ceremony, her brother made the delicious BBQ, a friend made the exquisite cupcakes, and everyone was lending a helping hand wherever they could. And get this! The matron of honor grew up with Anna, and she is married to the best man, who grew up with Jacob! That's right. The matron of honor & best man each knew Anna & Jacob separately and were best friends with them before they even got together. As the best man said, this stuff doesn't happen in real life! Well, it did for Anna & Jacob, and they are as happy as can be. Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day! I loved every minute of it!

Rachel & Brandon: Fall Wedding at Alive Wesleyan Church

Wow. Where do I even start with this couple and this wedding? Too much awesome happened in one day! I'll start by talking about what a cool couple Rachel & Brandon are. They love the outdoors, they love adventure, and they love life. I loved seeing them be happy together and enjoy life with their friends and family! A lot of Rachel's friends that she met when she worked at some national parks came down from all over to see their friend get hitched. It truly was a special day full of community and joy! Rachel & Brandon's first look was one of the sweetest I've ever seen.

Anna & Jacob: Engagement Session at SC Botanical Gardens and Walker Golf Course Dock

Anna & Jacob's classy engagement session was an absolute blast. We started the evening at the gorgeous SC Botanical Gardens in Clemson and explored the different settings that the gardens have to offer. We could have spent hours here! After that, we traveled a few minutes away to the Walker Golf Course Dock and caught the most gorgeous sunset! There aren't many things I love more than water and a good sunset. We continued to shoot into the post-sunset twilight which made for some beautifully creamy images. If I'm being honest, I have to admit this was my favorite engagement session to date, and I'm extra proud of these images. Anna & Jacob were so easy to work with, and they chose such gorgeous locations for their session! I hope you have as much fun viewing them as I did taking them! I can't wait until Nov. 19!

Sam & Susie: Mountaintop Engagement Session at Sassafras Mountain

I had the pleasure of meeting Sam & Susie this year at Susie's sister Becky's wedding! Later that week, I found out that Sam worked at a pool where I give swim lessons regularly in the summer. Small world! I had such a great time with Susie's family at the wedding, so I was over the moon when she contacted me asking that I would photograph her wedding as well! We decided on Sassafras Mountain, the tallest peak in SC, as the backdrop for their e-session. Sam & Susie are SO. STINKIN. CUTE. Just look at their smiles!! We had so much fun laughing and having a good time. We also got to witness a stunning sunset on the mountain, and it was a perfect evening. Enjoy the photos! Susie & Sam, thanks for being so fun!

Meagan & Jeremy: Rustic Wedding at Green Acres Events

I had the wonderful privilege of getting to know Meagan and Jeremy earlier this year during their engagement session, and I also got to spend some more time with Meagan during her bridal session. They are such a sweet couple! They chose the most perfect venue for their wedding. Green Acres Events is nestled in the woods of Honea Path, SC and provided a charming background for their lovely day. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and the sun was hitting the trees in just the right spot during their ceremony, making these some of my most favorite ceremony shots ever! Also, check out the girls' bouquets! The stunning florals were done by Meagan's uncle, based out of Charlotte, NC. They were perfect for Meagan and her lovely ladies. Meagan and Jeremy are truly meant to be! I just loved seeing them interact with each other. Meagan and Jeremy, I hope you're having a blast on your honeymoon, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Thanks for letting me be there on your special day.

Patrick & Becky: Wedding at Christ Community Church in Simpsonville, SC

Becky & Patrick were married on Memorial Day, and their wedding was nothing short of perfect! Everything about the day ran so smoothly and according to schedule. If you know anything about weddings, that says a lot! I loved the bright sanctuary at the church and all of the little touches that made the day unique to them as a couple. Isteated of a cake, they had gelato from Luna Rosa. For the guest book, they had a stack of postcards from different places. People could pick one out from a place they've been and write them a note! Becky & Patrick are both adventure-seekers. In fact, they are spending their honeymoon in Yosemite! Yeah, I'm jealous too. I also just love how obviously in love they are with each other. Just look at how Patrick looks at Becky and you'll know he's absolutely head over heels. He could not stop admiring her dress the whole day either! Oh, and the food at the reception was TO DIE FOR. Chicken, hummus, shrimp cocktail, stuffed mushrooms, and THE BEST grilled vegetables. Check out Uptown Catering if you want something tasty! They were both so sweet and I loved hanging out with them and meeting their parents, too! Congratulations to Becky & Patrick!!

Anna & Patrick: Wedding in Greenville, SC

Anna & Patrick are married! It's been such an honor working with this sweet couple. I knew Anna and Patrick from my university days here in Greenville, SC.

I have loved working with them these last few months! Their wedding was nothing short of perfect. It was a joy-filled day! So many guests showed up to support Anna and Patrick, which is a fabulous testimony of their commitment to each other and to the Lord. Check out Patrick's face in 99% of these... he couldn't wipe that grin off of his face! I am so happy to share these with everyone. Congratulations, Anna & Patrick!

Anna & Jared: Classy E-Session at Anderson University

Anna and Jared are getting married at the beautiful Gassaway Mansion in Greenville, SC. For their engagement photos, we looked for a place that would compliment their venue but would be slightly more casual. I think we found the perfect location at Anderson University. We explored some of the buildings around campus and found a great indoor breezeway area with beautiful light. After that, we set up in front of some of the gorgeous buildings on the main Anderson campus mall. I had a great time with these two and can't wait until their wedding in September!

The Richmond Family

Mini session family! The Richmonds were SO much fun to work with! These parents definitely have their hands full with three crazy boys, but oh what joy they must bring to their lives! There was not a dull moment during this shoot. I loved seeing the different personalities of each boy and trying to capture their differences. When I do family shoots, I want the session to be fun and not stressful, so my favorite thing to do is get the kids laughing! Instead of doing a lot of poses where the family is looking at the camera, I try to get them enjoying each other and having a blast. Prepare to smile when you see these photos! - CD
