My first official shoot living in Savannah!!! And it was DREAMY! Lilia and Steven were visiting Savannah for their anniversary last weekend. She is a photographer herself (always SUCH an honor) and she reached out to me to see if we could squeeze in a shoot while they were here. Typically, I do not offer […]

I’ve said it over and over and I’ll keep saying it…having a photographer trust me to capture their photos is SUCH an honor! G is a sweet friend of mine and an amazing photographer  in Charleston, and we have been planning these anniversary portraits fo SO long! They had to be rescheduled more times than […]
