This is a funny week on the blog because I shot SO much last week that things are being shared out of order!! I always blog weddings on Wednesdays, so I actually shared Kat and Carter’s wedding on the blog YESTERDAY (see it HERE!). But, we shot their engagement session in the same weekend – […]

Ya’ll, I’ve been DYING to get this engagement session up on the blog!!! The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of traveling to VA, shooting a wedding in Maryland, coming home to SC, going to NC for an engagement session, back to SC for my sister’s birthday then back to VA for another wedding. […]

Mitch and Taylor are such a special couple. These two had to reschedule their engagement session more times than I could count: travel conflicts, COVID restrictions and then ME getting sick meant that their shoot kept getting pushed back and back and back.

Ohhhh ya’ll this shoot is so special to me! I have so many new favorites images from this session that one has already made it’s way onto the home page of my website – hahaha! Sacia is a sweet friend of mine that I met when I moved here to Charleston. But, beyond that, she […]

I met Ellen when I was a 14 year old freshman. I don’t even remember what class […]

Ya’ll…it’s my first shoot back in TWO WHOLE MONTHS!!! AH!!! I can’t even believe it…and this shoot wasn’t even planned!! South Carolina has slowly started to lift stay-at-home orders and allowed small businesses to begin opening back up, which includes photographers. But, to be safe, I’ve kept almost all of my client shoots beginning in […]

Annie and Benny’s engagement session was my very first shoot of 2020, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off the year! I was traveling to Richmond last weekend to celebrate my sweet friend’s engagement dinner, and the trip happened to perfectly align with Annie and Benny’s availability! So, we met […]

I am typing this on my first official day back at work after a long holiday break…and it feels amazing!!! I’m so happy to be back! At the end of each year, one of my favorite things to do is go back through EVERY single gallery from the year and select my favorite images. I’ve […]
