Each wedding brings with it it’s own beauty and uniqueness and I fall more in love with my job with each wedding I shoot. I love photos that tug at your heart strings like daddy daughter dances, kisses on the forehead, tears during the ceremony, bride & groom photos, parents & grandparents dancing- so sweet! I want to capture all of those little moments for them to remember!!!
The friendships and experiences that we’ve created with our couples lasts far beyond the wedding day and we believe that’s how it should be. That’s why its more than just pretty pictures its about people and connecting with you on a personal level. You deserve the very best from us and we have developed processes that helps to guide your wedding experience with us so that you are never left to wonder what’s next or what to expect! We will teach you everything you need to know.
I am so glad you are here friend, so go ahead and cozy up on the couch with your favorite hot beverage, or chai tea latte in my case, and enjoy scrolling through our latest work, checkout our wedding process, my favorite wedding things, & if you’re on fence about what to do check out what some of our past brides have said about us!
We want to get to know our bride and groom and make lifelong friends not just clients. We also want to make sure we are a good fit and that our style matches what you are looking for, so after we get to know you online we would love to grab a cup of coffee and meet you in person if possible and then move onto the booking process…
Yay, its really happening you are about to book your photographer for your wedding day!!! We make this process simple and painless and yes everything is electronic. Yippee. We will send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit and then your date is safe!!! We will also send you some helpful information designed to help you plan your wedding with photography in mind! Now you can get excited because you are about to enter the wedding experience!!!
Get excited…it’s getting real! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session & send you some information on how to prepare for your session & outfit ideas! After your engagement session you will be featured on the blog and will also be sent an online gallery of images to download and share however you wish. And don’t worry about the engagement process and feeling awkward in front of the camera (ps that’s normal so congrats to being normal) we will teach you everything and you’re going to rock it out and look and feel amazing!
This day is going to be one of the best days of your life, but there may also be some moments you won’t see so we make it a priority to be your eyes and capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is bride and groom portraits. We like to have at least 30 min of bride and groom portrait time before the ceremony right after the first look and 30 min after the ceremony so we can get those sunset and glowy portraits you love!
After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery of your wedding memories! We encourage our couples to sit down with a glass of wine (CHEERS) the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!
We love getting to know couples and then following their love story across the years. We enjoy those emails just to say hello, news about a baby, or to pray for an upcoming surgery or family member! We want to cheer with you when you’re on the mountain top and be there to support, love, & pray for you in the valleys of life! It makes our work more fulfilling and meaningful to be a small part of your love & life story! P.S. we are totally game for a double date!
So, now that you know the process let’s get started… it just takes that first email to get the ball rolling! I hope to talk to you soon friend, but until then happy wedding planning!

Oh all the beautiful details!!! I love photographing the details from your wedding! The rings, earrings, invitations, custom stamps, family heirlooms, shoes, ribbons, & florals just to name a few.
Outdoor ceremonies are my favorite especially in Charleston at plantations with beautiful live oak trees and their winding limbs & spanish moss. It gives you that glow and magical feel to your images!
What is not beautiful about Charleston? Everywhere I turn I see God’s amazing handy work-so many gorgeous locations whether its downtown with the cobblestone and old homes with the cute little windows and iron gates, marinas, or at plantations with the beautiful live oaks, Spanish moss, and waterways.
This is the sweetest and most intimate moment of the day & I love capturing the raw emotion between the bride and groom as they see each other for the first time before the ceremony!
Your bouquet is your greatest accessory on your wedding day-so make it phenomenal and go all out! I love big beautiful lush florals with shades of pink, peach, and coral with lots of greenery and long flowy ribbons!
Love, love, love lace! There is something about lace wedding dresses that is so elegant, dainty, & feminine that never goes out of style! Lace sleeves too- Oh yes!!!
Long flowy veils are truly magical and photograph so well! I love the way they compliment your dress and float in the breeze!
These are my favorite photos of the entire day! This is your wedding day and I want as many photos of the two of you as possible to document your special day!
The soft color is so romantic, then add some sparkle too-yes please!!!
Is it just me or do you feel like you are in a fairy tale when you are surrounded by live oaks with Spanish moss draping from them that then cascade over the pathway? It’s truly magical & I feel like I am stepping onto the pages of the “The Notebook.” This is my happy place!
As a husband and wife team we enjoy getting to know you as a couple aside from the wedding! We aim to make lifelong friends not just clients!
Fake exits are the way to go! You just fake the bride and groom exit then go back to the party, that way the older guests and those with kids that need to leave because its past their bedtime are free to do so and you still get your epic exit shots, it’s a win-win!
For investment details and availability, please send a message using the contact form. We accept a limited number of weddings each year and the average couple spends about $3000 on full wedding day coverage.
