Lauren :: Robert Mills House Bridals

Lauren and Nick are married!  Her dress, worn by her grandmother and her mother on their wedding days, was one of the most stunning I've ever seen!

Courtney + Mario :: Craggy Gardens Asheville NC

A few months ago, when I was thinking about how I wanted to launch my new brand, I knew that it had to include a giveaway for a portrait session.  Gifting photographs to a deserving couple or family has been one of life's greatest rewards for me and Courtney and Mario could not have been more incredible to work with.  From our initial conversation when I floated the idea of shooting in Asheville (Courtney didn't even hesitate on that one) to watching them climb out on a ledge overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains (despite her legit fear of heights), this experience was more than I had ever dreamed. 

There is something so freeing, so empowering and uplifting about shooting for fun, without any pressure or preconceived expectations.  It truly fills me up.  A million thank you's to Courtney and Mario for being amazing and fearless and funny and adventurous and just plain wonderful.  You two are an inspiration and I'm forever grateful.

Lauren + Stephen :: Columbia SC wedding

You will not find a sweeter couple than these two.  From the very beginning, I loved working with Lauren, her sweet momma, and their amazing planner Meagan Warren (she's the best y'all).   With a soft and romantic color palette and springtime blooms, I just knew that their wedding day was going to be so beautiful.  Lauren has a classic and timeless essence about her and is every bit as beautiful on the inside as she is the outside.  And what a wonderful group of family and friends these two have- they really made this day a special one. 

Lauren and Stephen, it was such a pleasure to be present with you and I wish you every happiness in the world.  xoxo

Natalie + Anthony :: City Roots Farm wedding Columbia SC

Weddings at City Roots Farm are my jam.  Add to that a fabulous couple whose vision for their day is built upon love, family, a sense of community and connection, and locally sourced amazing food, and basically I've died and gone to heaven.  

Natalie and Anthony were a dream to work with.  Every detail of their day was thoughtful, intentional, and a perfect reflection of who they are.  I loved that Anthony's best friend Alex officiated the wedding, just as Anthony had done for him.  And hats off to the incredible Farm to Table Event Company's team who made sure everything was gorgeous and perfect.
