Sylvie + Matthew :: Greenville SC wedding

It is such a special thing to photograph two weddings for one family.  Especially when the family is as amazing as this one.  I first met Sylvie when I photographed her twin sister's bridal portraits a couple of years ago and was elated when she asked me to document her wedding as well.  I love these ladies and am so grateful for the wonderful experience it has been working with them and their families over the past couple of years. To know this sweet couple is to love them.  Matthew is a standup guy and it only takes a few seconds to realize that he and Sylvie were meant for each other.  Together, they exude joy and love and fun and are the kind of people you want to be around.  I wish you two the best of the best and I can't wait to see what adventures the future holds for you.  Love you both!

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.

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.

Katie + Jonathan :: Wedding {South Carolina wedding photographer}

What a truly beautiful, heartfelt, sincere, and fun wedding this was.  I loved every single thing about it.  The gorgeous florals, her dress with a blush underlay, the high-energy super-fun band, and can we please talk about the food truck that served grilled cheeses?!  I really hope more couples jump on that food truck bandwagon, because it was amazing. Katie and Jonathan are so good together, so loving and thoughtful to each other and those around them.  I loved how laid back they were and not afraid to have impromptu dance parties.  It was an absolute pleasure to get to know them and share in this day with so many great people.

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

Morgan + Matt :: Wedding {Charleston SC wedding photographer}

What a lovely couple these two are.  I was delighted when Morgan stopped by my booth at a recent bridal show and we realized how many mutual friends we had.  I was even more delighted when she hired me to photograph the most special day in her life.  She and Matt have a deep affinity for Charleston and the water, and with Matt being a Citadel alum, picking out their venue was an easy decision. I really enjoyed spending the day with this sweet couple and their loving family and friends.  Lots of love to you, Morgan and Matt!
