First - HI I'm the most inconsistent blogger known to the world. My lovely clients have been keeping me busy! <3 The Final wedding of 2017 was a special one let me tell you why..
We first met in a parking lot. She looked familiar (Thank you Facebook.) and I saw her getting her gear out of her car for a shoot. I went to quickly introduce myself to a fellow photographer and I actually ended up helping her as an assistant and ‘behind the scenes’ photographer just for the fun of it!
She’s since then turned into one of my closest friends. They say God places people in your life when you need them the most, but also when you least expect it. (Hello Parking lot) We share the same faith in God, we’ve laughed, encouraged each other and called each other out on our mess, but I’m thankful for every SINGLE moment.
She got engaged and we started talking weddings. She’s like me didn’t exactly want a large, expensive, and outrageous wedding. She just wanted something intimate with friends and family. I was simply hoping to be included in the friend portion of it all, but it almost FLOORED me when she asked me to be her photographer. I remember searching for the most ridiculous GIF I could find to respond saying, “Yes!”
I have to admit I was nervous to photograph her wedding. I didn’t want to disappoint which is funny because even though I’ve got a ton of weddings under my belt I still get nervous with each one and because she was a photographer too it rose the stakes even more.
They’re both fans of a winter wonderland, but we’re in South Carolina so ya know that’s not going to happen naturally so I did a little magic ;-) ! I learned so much about their relationship, their families and their love during their special day.
I’m so thankful for this opportunity! Check out some of my favorites, special edits and more!
So Happy these two found each other! I can't wait to see where God takes them next! <3
It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! My favorite Holiday is thanksgiving – I’m pretty sure it’s mostly because of the food! Haha
Every year I think of ways to be thankful for those who have chosen me to be their photographer all while giving back in the community and organizations near and dear to my heart!
