Taylor’s farm maternity session might have been the coldest of my career!  Not only was it freezing temperatures, but it was also insanely windy!  I was worried about the heavy winds at first, but it made her pink dress flow beautifully!  Taylor handled the weather conditions better than any of us and she looked incredible! […]

This maternity session at Looking Glass Falls takes my breath away!  This session means so much more to me than just pretty pictures.  When I first met Jessie and Christian years ago, I knew they were something special.  I’ve had the privilege of capturing their complete wedding journey, anniversary sessions, and the announcement of their […]

This Freedom Park engagement session is one of my favorites!  Angeline and Davis told me they had never had professional pictures made before, but they sure could have fooled me!  They were such naturals in front of the camera and the sweetest people you’ll find! Davis proposed with his grandmother’s diamond, which he had mounted […]

This Broad River Greenway maternity session is to die for!  Kylie and Donnie are coming up on their 3 year anniversary and will be welcoming a baby girl in March!  They used this location for their engagement pictures so it was only fitting to return here for their maternity session. I had so much fun […]

This downtown Greenville engagement session makes for one of my top favorites!  Christa and Mark are such a fun and adventurous couple and were a dream to photograph! They first met while working together at the Clayton King summer camp and started dating in September of 2018.  This past summer, Mark was ready to take […]

Emily and Blake’s wedding at The Lace House has me swooning!  This historic venue, and it’s exquisite gardens, was breathtaking!  This sweet couple have been married for 15 years, but never got their big wedding.  Emily finally got the wedding of her dreams and their vow renewal brought us all to tears! Emily and Blake first […]

During the holidays, the quaint little town of Forest City turns into a Hallmark movie set!  Not really, but you would certainly think so if you drove through!  Emily loves the holidays and is even planning a Christmas in July themed wedding.  So it was only fitting to do their engagement session in this cute […]

Cassie and Charlie’s Gingerbread Meeting House wedding was a dream!  These two are the sweetest people I’ve ever met and the wedding party was just as amazing!  Cassie chose a burgundy themed wedding and it was perfect for this setting!  Not to mention how stunning she looked in her lace gown! As Cassie started down […]

This Lake Lure engagement session definitely makes the top of my list of favorites!  Taylor and TJ were incredible to work with and the love they have for one another shows in their pictures!  All of the love and laughter going on during this session was enough to warm the entire town! Taylor and TJ […]

When Emily pitched the idea of doing her bridal session at the Columbia State House, I was ecstatic!  It was my first trip here and I was not disappointed!  This classy, yet edgy, bride had me squealing with excitement for every shot! Her burgundy suede boots and matching coat was nothing like I had ever […]

The blog is here to not only showcase weddings and portraits, but also to be a resource for clients and other photographers. You'll find session and photography tips, style guides, and so much more!  If there's something specific you're interested in, shoot me a message - I'd love to hear all about it!
