Sylvie :: Bridals {Columbia SC wedding photographer}

Sylvie was the most stunning bride!  Her bridal portraits at Wavering Place Plantation will always be a favorite of mine.  And anytime there's a floral crown from Fern Studio, it's always a great day. columbia_sc_wed_photographer100columbia_sc_wed_photographer101columbia_sc_wed_photographer102columbia_sc_wed_photographer103columbia_sc_wed_photographer104columbia_sc_wed_photographer105columbia_sc_wed_photographer106columbia_sc_wed_photographer107columbia_sc_wed_photographer108columbia_sc_wed_photographer109columbia_sc_wed_photographer110columbia_sc_wed_photographer111columbia_sc_wed_photographer112columbia_sc_wed_photographer113columbia_sc_wed_photographer114columbia_sc_wed_photographer115columbia_sc_wed_photographer116columbia_sc_wed_photographer117columbia_sc_wed_photographer118columbia_sc_wed_photographer119columbia_sc_wed_photographer120columbia_sc_wed_photographer121columbia_sc_wed_photographer122columbia_sc_wed_photographer123columbia_sc_wed_photographer124columbia_sc_wed_photographer125columbia_sc_wed_photographer126columbia_sc_wed_photographer127columbia_sc_wed_photographer128columbia_sc_wed_photographer129

Baby Nell {Columbia newborn photographer}

There's something so magical about newborn sessions that have always made them a favorite of mine.  Spending time with a family that has just brought home it's newest member, when everyone is getting to know each other, figuring out the new normal, where most days are only spent sleeping and eating and establishing a routine... this is such a special time and I love having the opportunity to document it.  Thank you sweet Hoey family for having me, y'all are the best, and I hope to see you again soon! columbia_sc_wed_photographer50columbia_sc_wed_photographer51columbia_sc_wed_photographer52columbia_sc_wed_photographer53columbia_sc_wed_photographer54columbia_sc_wed_photographer55columbia_sc_wed_photographer56columbia_sc_wed_photographer57columbia_sc_wed_photographer58columbia_sc_wed_photographer59columbia_sc_wed_photographer60columbia_sc_wed_photographer61columbia_sc_wed_photographer62columbia_sc_wed_photographer63columbia_sc_wed_photographer64columbia_sc_wed_photographer65columbia_sc_wed_photographer66columbia_sc_wed_photographer67columbia_sc_wed_photographer68columbia_sc_wed_photographer69columbia_sc_wed_photographer70

Maria {SC portrait photographer}

If you have never stumbled across the amazing blog Wordless News you must go have a look.  It is the brainchild of my good friend and designer Maria Fabrizio and it. is. fabulous.  Her talents got the attention of NPR and she now does illustrative work for their program Morning Edition. The good folks at NPR did a feature on Maria a couple of years ago, and they are working on another one.  When she called to ask if I would help document her creative process for the feature, I could not wait to get started.  Maria + NPR = two of my favorite things.

Sonja + John :: Wedding {South Carolina Wedding Photographer}

Sonja and John live in sunny California but were married in their hometown of Columbia.  I didn't have the opportunity to meet them ahead of the wedding weekend, but I could tell right away what a special, sweet connection they have.  They would each light up when the other entered the room (which I heard several guests commenting about at the reception).  It was obvious to everyone around them and so heartwarming to watch. I absolutely loved their style and the art deco wedding they planned.  The perfect color palette of ivory, black, gold, and burgundy was paired with gorgeous florals.  And those dresses!  Sonja's wedding dress with its sheer 3/4 sleeves and the gold sequined bridesmaids' dresses-- oh my goodness were they lovely and fabulous.  It always makes me so happy when I see a couple make design choices that reflect who they are instead of just following the popular trends.

Thank you Sonja and John for having me document your beautiful day and I wish you both all the happiness your hearts can hold.
