Working with other photographers is ALWAYS an honor…and it’s even MORE of an honor when it’s one of your past students!!! Dakota has become a sweet friend of mine over the years after attending a live filming for one of my courses. She reached out to me a couple weeks ago that she would be […]

I have been looking forward to this shoot for MONTHS!!! Griffin reached out to me back in July saying that he would be traveling with his girlfriend to Charleston and wanted to plan to propose to her. He found me on Instagram and thought that his girlfriend Hannah would love my style (SO sweet)!!! We […]

I had two GORGEOUS shoots last week…which makes for a full week on the blog!!! We have spent MONTHS trying to plan Amelia and Trevor’s engagement session. Travel bans, COVID restrictions and complications kept pushing it farther and farther back. Amelia was flying in from CALIFORNIA for the shoot…and her travel ban was finally lifted […]

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. And they were SO kind the entire time. Taylor is a photographer […]

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 […]

This engagement session is special for SO many reasons!!! One being that it kicks off my “busy” season of normalcy after so long in quarantine…and two because Ellen was one of my absolute best friends in high school!! I met Ellen when I was a 14 year old freshman. I don’t even remember what class […]
