This wedding day has been a LONG time coming!!! Courtney and Ross’s big day was originally scheduled for April 2020. When that date obviously could not happen…they rescheduled not once, not twice…but 3 TIMES!! They patiently waited for this day to arrive for over one full year…and I think it made it that much sweeter. […]

I have been looking forward to this day for over a year now!!! I first met Austin and Tony in person at their engagement session, and I immediately adored them. The way they love each other, Austin’s attention to detail and her joyful personality made me feel like I was just hanging out with one […]

My first wedding to kick off the spring season of 2021 was SUCH a special one. Amelia and Trevor are the type of couple that radiate joy everywhere they go. You can just SEE how much they love each other in every way they interact…and it’s so special. I photographed their engagement session in Charleston […]

My LAST wedding of 2020…and it was such a special one to me. Ellen was a sweet friend of mine in high school, and I was actually friends with her when she STARTED dating Brandon all the way back in 2011! Their wedding was actually originally scheduled for February 2021, but with all the uncertainty […]

This is an exciting blog post for two reasons: 1. It’s my LAST wedding of 2020 but 2. It’s my FIRST ever wedding in Charleston!!! I’ve lived in Charleston for a little over a year now, but I’ve been traveling back to Virginia (and all over the East Coast!) to photograph my weddings. This was […]

This was my SECOND wedding in SIX days after almost 9 months of not shooting a wedding…craziness!! And it felt SO good!!! Kat and Carter got married in Virginia Beach on Saturday, in the midst of a pandemic, and it was the most wonderful day. There were so many sweet and sentimental details throughout the […]
