Stacie + Erik South Carolina Botanical Garden Maternity Session

South Carolina Botanical Garden Maternity Session


South Carolina Botanical Garden Maternity Session | Clemson, SC


It has been the coldest winter I can remember in South Carolina since we moved down from New York in 2015! We usually get about one crazy day where it snows and then things start warming up … but this year it has already snowed on two different occasions and the temperatures have me thinking we are back in New York again!!! So I wasn’t sure what to expect for our first session in 2018 … and I was starting to get nervous because the last thing I wanted was for this Momma to be freezing! But we could not have had better luck! The weather took a crazy turn and it was perfect … blue sky and 65 degrees for January 20th!!

We met Stacie and Erik through one of our sweet wedding couple’s last year. Stacie was the event and floral designer for their wedding and Erik is family of the groom! So when Stacie contacted me for their maternity session I knew we were going to have a great time with these two! And Stacie also mentioned she was going to design a floral arrangement for the session so I’m not going to lie when I say I could wait for this session! Stacie’s floral arrangements and bouquets are stunning and if anyone knows me well then you know I LOVE flowers! Wait until you see this gorgeous bouquet, it was the perfect touch for a winter maternity session!

We captured Stacie and Erik’s maternity session at the South Carolina Botanical Garden in Clemson, SC! It was actually a last-minute decision after their first choice location did not work out … and I’m so glad the first location did not work out because the South Carolina Botanical Gardens was amazing! I’m pretty sure it’s the only place in Upstate South Carolina where you can find a desert, hills and overgrown fields! Seriously beautiful!!!

Congratulations Stacie and Erik, baby Elijah is going to be so loved! And thank you for trusting us with these special memories. Your session was absolutely beautiful and Stacie, you looked gorgeous … motherhood already agrees with you! Enjoy some of our favorites from your South Carolina Botanical Garden Maternity Session!!

Jennifer + Corey Married 12.16.17 | A Sleepy Hollow Wedding

Sleepy Hollow Wedding in Clemson, South Carolina


A Sleepy Hollow Wedding, Greenville South Carolina


I can’t believe this was our last wedding of 2017!! And I couldn’t imagine any party quite as fun as Jennifer and Corey’s beautiful Sleepy Hollow wedding to end this years wedding season! When Jennifer and I started chatting about their wedding day the one thing she kept mentioning is how excited they were to celebrate their special day with all of their closest family and friends who would be traveling from all over to be by their side!

A few things you have to know about Jennifer and Corey’s wedding are: 1) they love being silly!!! These two as well as their bridal party and guests kept us laughing the whole day! 2) The groom and groomsmen are the tallest wedding party we have ever photographed … I’m talking they make 6 ft. seem short! 3) It was cold (for South Carolina as least LOL), a high in the low 50’s and the night dropped into the 30’s but you would have never have guessed because these two were too busy enjoying their day to the fullest and dancing the night away with their closest friends and family!

Jennifer and Corey’s wedding was beautiful! And Sleepy Hollow was the perfect setting! This was our first time photographing at Sleepy Hollow and I still can’t get over all the gorgeous photo locations that this property had! From an open field filled with Southern Magnolia trees to the most symmetrical tree-lined forest it was AMAZING!!! And wait until you see the arbor that Jennifer’s father made for their ceremony, it was absolutely beautiful, especially the details with their names and wedding date.

I could go on and on about all the wonderful details and moments that made up Jennifer and Corey’s wedding! Congratulations you too, we loved getting to know both of you and had such a great time meeting your friends and family! Enjoy some of our favorites from your special day!

A Fall Brown Mountain Beach Resort Engagement | Collettsville, North Carolina


Leah and Joseph’s Brown Mountain Beach Resort engagement session was our final engagement shoot for the season and it was amazing! We may not have had the dry warm weather we were hoping for but those rain clouds certainly made the Fall colors pop! And do you think Leah and Joseph complained once about the weather … not at all!!! These two were a dream to work with!

Leah and Joseph chose Brown Mountain Beach Resort for their engagement session location since they will be getting married at this venue next year and fell in love with the Fall colors covering the grounds! I have seen photos of the grounds at this venue before but there is nothing like seeing this venue in person! It is absolutely stunning and has just about everything, a beach, water, cliffs and trees!

Leah and Joseph are two of the sweetest people. You know when you meet someone and you just know instantly that your going to love them? That’s what we experienced with Leah and Joseph. It was so great being able to see their gorgeous wedding venue ahead of their big day and we enjoyed having some one-on-one time getting to know these two!

Leah and Joseph are getting married this coming Summer, and we couldn’t be more excited for their celebration at Brown Mountain Beach Resort! In just a couple of hours with them, we could just tell how much they love each other and the amount of fun they have together. Their genuine joy made it so easy to capture these special moments!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from this Brown Mountain Beach Resort engagement session and get excited to see these two on the blog again next summer for their wedding!

Samantha + Soul Married 11.11.17 | An Elegant Blush Wedding

An Elegant Blush Wedding at the American Legion in Greenwood, South Carolina


An Elegant Blush Wedding in Greenwood, South Carolina


Samantha and Soul are married!! They celebrated their big day at the American Legion in Greenwood, South Carolina, and I have to say this blush wedding was simply gorgeous! The flowers, the drapery and the sparkle … the details that went into the ceremony and reception space just amazed me! And I loved that everything was in one location!!! We didn’t even have to venture far for their portraits since the American Legion just happened to be across from a beautiful rose garden and green space! There were even a few roses in bloom!!!

Samantha and Soul’s family was such a huge part of their day. They have three beautiful children that they wanted to make sure were included in their celebration and this was by far my favorite part of their wedding. Watching Samantha and Soul and their kids each pour a different color of sand together into one jar during the ceremony and watching them pray together as a family was just the sweetest! Their day was filled with so much joy and love!!

And wait until you see their dessert table! While we were capturing Samantha and Soul cut their cake and admiring the oh so many delicious looking desserts, Soul mentioned that they were all homemade Russian desserts! Lets just say … the foodie in us certainly enjoyed capturing them!!

Samantha and Soul, what an honor it was to be the ones capturing your day! Despite the colder weather, it was perfect! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this special season of your life! Congratulations!!
