Rachel & Matt

Rachel and I have gotten to know each other fairly well over the past six months. Especially, since I photographed her at Matt’s wedding, engagement photos, and bridal portraits. These two first met a few years ago while interning at the Wild Dunes Resort in Mt. Pleasant. I’m happy to say that things definitely worked out really well for both of them. Rachel and Matt had a gorgeous wedding at The Island House in Charleston. I’ve shot here many times and the weather always seems to turn how better than expected. I had a great time hanging out with all the bridesmaids at Stella Nova Salon in West Ashley. They were such a fun group of crowd, it definitely made my job easier. Later that day, everyone arrived at the house to finish getting ready and prepare for the ceremony to take place on the lawn adjacent to the river. Rachel and Matt exchanged personal letters with one another before the ceremony. Matt must have said some pretty deep and meaningful words because Rachel couldn’t stop from crying, what a great guy! You can tell he really cares about her! After the ceremony, the band kept the party jumpin’ with great music and tons of dancing. Everyone was killing it out there on the dance floor! Enough said, checkout the photos to see for yourself!

Allison & Jason

Wow, I can’t believe the time has so quickly came and past that Allison and Jason exchanged vows and entered into covenant relationship with one another. It seems like just the other day that I was meeting them for the first time. It’s truly amazing how fast time flies and I’m sure they’re saying the same thing. It wasn’t to long ago that Allison and Jason met for the first time. Look backing, I know for fact that Allison is grateful she took a leap of a faith and innocently offered her phone to Jason. Who would have know that such a simple gesture would lead to such a wonderful blessing. Allison and Jason’s wedding day was held at Middleton Place in Charleston. The day began with everyone getting ready at the Inn and praying that the rain holds out. Thankfully, it did. The overcast clouds were much better than pouring rain, especially for a ceremony at the Octagonal Gardens. The sun peaked through the clouds just as the ceremony began, making light for a grand entrance by Allison and her father. After the ceremony, we walked around the gardens taking advantage of the wonderful scenery. Because of the overcast lighting, I decided to shoot a little more black and white than usual. I really like the mood it created. At the reception, the band “Shimmer,” lead everyone into a spectacular evening. The band played tons of classics from Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra to all the modern hits everyone knows. They definitely rocked the house and had everyone dancing like crazy. What a wonderful wedding my good friend Chelyse Harp of Intrigue Design & Events put together, well done!

Amanda & Ethan

On Friday, James and I photographed Amanda and Ethan’s wedding at Cypress Gardens just outside of Charleston. The weather turned out to be really wonderful and thankfully no rain came to interrupt it! The ceremony was held at the “Wedding Garden” located at the south end of the swamp. As the ceremony began, Amanda and her Dad made a grand entrance on a wooden canoe. Laughs were shared during the ceremony and many tears came at the end. After the ceremony, we took Amanda and Ethan out on the swamp for some romantic photos of them spending time together in the canoe. My favorite thing about Cypress Gardens is the black swampy water. For those who don’t know, this place was used in a scene from the movie “The Notebook.” We’re so lucky this place is so close to Charleston. At the reception, everyone had an amazing, exotic stuffed chicken dinner (I’m no chef, not sure what the proper name for it is). Immediately following were toasts from the best man, maid of honor, and the brides father; finishing out the night with tons of dancing and sparkles as they exited. Amanda and Ethan’s wedding turned out to be a good one. I’m glad that they had us come out to photograph their wedding. Congratulations to both of them!
