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

Marisa + Billy :: Wedding {South Carolina Wedding Photographer}

I think it's safe to say that nobody prefers to have it rain on their wedding day.  Certainly not when that rain is accompanied by a hurricane and flash flooding.  But even when the plans veer off course, the purpose of the day should not be forgotten.  And that is to celebrate the beginning of a strong and beautiful marriage, surrounded by the people who matter most. Not only was this wedding beautiful, but it was flawless in spite of the weather.  Marisa and Billy's spirits were always upbeat and their family and friends brought nothing but joy and laughter to the day.  I'm so grateful to this sweet couple for bringing me along on their journey and even more thankful to the amazing team of vendors for giving them the wedding of their dreams, come hell or high water.

Susan + Andy :: Wedding {Columbia SC wedding photographer}

Susan and Andy are just as sweet as can be.  She planned most of their wedding while he was deployed overseas… as you can see, it turned out to be a beautiful tribute to her pilot husband and the Air Force that he loves so dearly.  Their wonderful and supportive group of family and friends made the day so delightful.  Thank you both for having me document such a special day in your lives! columbia_sc_wed_photo_1columbia_sc_wed_photo_2columbia_sc_wed_photo_3columbia_sc_wed_photo_4columbia_sc_wed_photo_5columbia_sc_wed_photo_6columbia_sc_wed_photo_7columbia_sc_wed_photo_8columbia_sc_wed_photo_9columbia_sc_wed_photo_10columbia_sc_wed_photo_11columbia_sc_wed_photo_12columbia_sc_wed_photo_13columbia_sc_wed_photo_14columbia_sc_wed_photo_15columbia_sc_wed_photo_16columbia_sc_wed_photo_17columbia_sc_wed_photo_18columbia_sc_wed_photo_19columbia_sc_wed_photo_20columbia_sc_wed_photo_21columbia_sc_wed_photo_22columbia_sc_wed_photo_23columbia_sc_wed_photo_24columbia_sc_wed_photo_25columbia_sc_wed_photo_26columbia_sc_wed_photo_27columbia_sc_wed_photo_28columbia_sc_wed_photo_29columbia_sc_wed_photo_30columbia_sc_wed_photo_31columbia_sc_wed_photo_32columbia_sc_wed_photo_33columbia_sc_wed_photo_34columbia_sc_wed_photo_35columbia_sc_wed_photo_36columbia_sc_wed_photo_37columbia_sc_wed_photo_38columbia_sc_wed_photo_39columbia_sc_wed_photo_40columbia_sc_wed_photo_41columbia_sc_wed_photo_42columbia_sc_wed_photo_43columbia_sc_wed_photo_44columbia_sc_wed_photo_45columbia_sc_wed_photo_46columbia_sc_wed_photo_47columbia_sc_wed_photo_48columbia_sc_wed_photo_49columbia_sc_wed_photo_50columbia_sc_wed_photo_51columbia_sc_wed_photo_52columbia_sc_wed_photo_53columbia_sc_wed_photo_54columbia_sc_wed_photo_55columbia_sc_wed_photo_56columbia_sc_wed_photo_57columbia_sc_wed_photo_58columbia_sc_wed_photo_59columbia_sc_wed_photo_60columbia_sc_wed_photo_61columbia_sc_wed_photo_62columbia_sc_wed_photo_63columbia_sc_wed_photo_64columbia_sc_wed_photo_65columbia_sc_wed_photo_66

Sarah + Josh :: Wedding {Columbia SC wedding photographer}

Goodness, there are so many things to love about Sarah and Josh.  They are so fun to be around, they never sweat the small stuff, they love and adore each other, and they are always kind to everyone around them.  My kinda people.  Their beautiful wedding was such a reflection of who they are, and so emotional.  I cried at least 3 different times that day… mostly while watching Josh's reaction to the love of his life. Sarah and Josh, thank you for allowing me to share in this day with you… you both have touched my heart and I am so glad to know you.  Y'all have a beautiful future ahead of you, that will no doubt include lots of fun adventures.  xo

Graham :: Birth Day {Columbia SC baby photographer}

I had been looking forward to this day for quite some time.  My dear friend Angie was having a home birth with her second baby and wanted me to document it.  Just the thought of it seemed so peaceful and perfect to me.  We lived 5 minutes from each other, making it even more convenient and easy. Wellllll, I should have known that the first lesson in birth photography is that babies come when they are ready.  Not when you are ready.  So, without anyone to watch my babies at home, I missed sweet Graham's birth by a few hours.

But what I did get to witness and document for them was just as perfect.  When I arrived around dinner time, it was almost surreal.  You'd never have known that a baby had just been born.  Angie and Graham were sweetly snuggling in the bed together, soaking up the moment, and I could instantly feel the love that filled the room.  It was beautiful.  Absolutely beautiful.

Graham, you chose the perfect family to be born into.  Your big sister is so great with you and will no doubt be your favorite friend and playmate.  And your parents are already the best at navigating these murky waters of life with a newborn.  You are lucky in love, sweet boy, that's for sure.  :)
