This blog post is a testament to the fact that even people with strong systems in place in their business miss things!!! This entire week I SWORE I had already blogged Jamie and Adam’s anniversary session…but I didn’t!! I still don’t know how that happened! But, these cuties were traveling through Charleston at the end […]

I’ve said it on the blog SO many times and I’ll say it over and over again: one of the BEST emails I can get is an inquiry from another photographer!!! When Madison emailed me that her and her fiancé, Christian, would be in Charleston and wanted me to capture some portraits for them… I […]
