So sweet, dancing in on angel feet.
Straight from heaven's brightest star
What a miracle you are!"
- Author Unknown

Such a awesome day.  Olivia's family traveled from as far as Poland to be apart of her baptism. The day started at the stunning St Johns Greek Orthodox Church. It is just inspiring with all vibrant colors. The details and the beautiful significance that is behind it all was beautiful. The room soon filled with family and the busy chatter of coming together. Everyone was so kind and happily explaining to me (non Greek) the baptism and the importance of it to the families. Her God parents are just over the moon with Oliva and their spiritual responsibility to her. 

Olivia never made a peep all day. She just cooed and smiled at everyone fawning over her. And fawn over her they did. But how could you not, with those CHEEKS and big sweet eyes. The few pictures I got of her and her grandmother are some of my favorites that I have ever taken. (tears every time) The reception was held at Pine Lakes, and everything was perfect. The details, the food, the COOKIES!!! Then the dancing started and was still going when I left.

Wachesaw Plantation Wedding {Ava + Chris } “I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to yourself any longer, not completely. Part of you belongs to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.”
― Claudia GrayA Thousand Pieces of You

Ava and I met at a friends wedding last winter and I knew that I had to be part of her big day. We talked over coffee and just seeing how here face lights up when she talks about Chris makes my heart all fluttery. The big day was FULL of family and the greatest friends that a couple could have asked for. Wachesaw Plantation is the perfect venue for the southern plantation wedding Ava had in mind. Carolina Charm Florist did and amazing job on the bouquets and all of the blush details of the day. I didn’t meet Chris until the day of the wedding but I could tell he was a man head over heels when he saw her walking down the isle. It was an honor to be there to document this day in their love story.  After a beautiful ceremony and fun filled reception. The newly married couple made a mad dash out under neon arch.

Bobbei's Maternity Session at home When you become a mother, you stop being the picture and start being the frame.

Most maternity sessions are at a beach or garden of some kind. But let face it, when you get far enough along, you don't want to be outside dealing with the elements. You want to Nest and just enjoy the days until the new little one arrives. You want hang out in the nursery imagining how it'll be once they are born, or in Bobbei's case spend some last one on one time with your first born. Well, you know that's just what we did. :) I am head over heels with Ben. He's going to be the best big brother to Katie. bobbei-maternity-2bobbei-maternity-3bobbei-maternity-4bobbei-maternity-9bobbei-maternity-10bobbei-maternity-18bobbei-maternity-25bobbei-maternity-28bobbei-maternity-30bobbei-maternity-39bobbei-maternity-41bobbei-maternity-46bobbei-maternity-47bobbei-maternity-48bobbei-maternity-53bobbei-maternity-55bobbei-maternity-61bobbei-maternity-64bobbei-maternity-68bobbei-maternity-71bobbei-maternity-73bobbei-maternity-76bobbei-maternity-80bobbei-maternity-92bobbei-maternity-96bobbei-maternity-102bobbei-maternity-108bobbei-maternity-118

Bridal Session at Caledonia Golf Club Pawley's Island, South Carolina “I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.” —Roy Croft

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club is a perfect backdrop for a southern bridal session. Tall live oaks line the road and the porch of the Pro Shop looks just like a old plantation house. It's really all SWOON worthy.

When I met Ava and she said that her dress was pink, yes I said PINK. I knew that I just had to photograph her wedding. She is amazingly sweet and super fun. When we were planning her bridal session, she said that she wanted something fun. Vintage Chair, Balloons and her 2 year old daughter, is what we came up with. I am so excited to finally be able to share these.

Mallory + Chris Engagement "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever."

— The Notebook 

These two are just fun to be around. Chris is a non stop goof with no "off" switch and Mallory loves to laugh. I guess that's what make them so good together. We just walked around the property and got all these giggles and cute kisses. Not going to lie, he did pinch her but a couple times, but can't show y'all those. LOL I am so happy for this couple and can't wait fr their November wedding in TN.

Mary Claire & Chad Amato Wedding (Thompsons Farm in Conway, SC)
"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
Helen Keller
I love any Venue that is outside and Thompson Farms is a favorite. The barn with it hanging lights and chandeliers are just so pretty. Any bride would swoon. Mary Claire was no different. She chose flowers, tea cups and all things shiny as her decor. Each table was different but came together perfectly.
I walked into the bridal suite and it was a buzz with her very best friends and clothes everywhere. But that's how friends get ready, right?!?
They are an opposites attract couple. They met at bike Week a few years ago. She is all smiles and can talk circles around anyone. He is more the sit back and take it all in kinda guy. It works for them and the little family they've made. I am so happy so have been a part of their big day.
The day couldn't have happened without Murray and Mike's They really had hands in all of it. Beach Blossoms  did a beautiful job, as did Bobbi Pate with hair and make up. Video services by Jarrett Hucks.  The ceremony was done by one of my favorites Benjy Simmons.  I can't thank yall enough for making my job even more fun :)

Coffee & Chickens This is how I start my day, everyday. I love watching the chickens hunt for green bits and crawly things. They are named after Motley Crew . I mean they look like a 80's hair band. Tommy Lee is my Bantam Roo and the love of my life.:) The ducks think they are chickens that swim. LOL   The dogs chase chase sticks and each other till they fall over panting. The horses just want to know what you have for them. Slim (brown one) will literally push the fence down for clover...

Laura & Daniel Verhine {Reception}  
“And we are put on this earth a little space that we might learn to bear the beams of love”
William Blake
Laura and Daniel are an awesome couple. You just have to be around them for a few minutes and it feels like you have been buds for years. These two are super laid back but crazy about each other. They opted out of a traditional wedding at home and got hitched in the tropics. (Super jealous) But these two have to many friends to not have a party when they got back. It was a brisk winter day full of cheers and "remember whens" that it didn't feel like work at all.  I wish this couple a life full of  adventure.

Lois & Joseph {Wedding} A photographer friend referred this wedding to me because he was already booked. I owe him a muffin basket for this one. After doing this for years, weddings tend to lose the magic of the day. I get so wrapped up in my job part that the emotions of the day don't get to me anymore.
This one got me right in the feels, and I fell right in love with couple. Lois and Joseph were married for 30+ years but for their own reasons divorced. After 5 years of living apart, this couple found their way back to each other. They and their two adult children traveled to Myrtle Beach from where they live in WV for a beach wedding. We talked on the phone so much before the big day that Lois and I are old friends now. The day of the wedding, the weather wasn't playing nice and a thick fog ruined her plans of an outdoor ceremony.
Now, a normal bride would have a panic attack, but Lois is a cool customer. "We will get married right here in the room, it doesn't matter if the sun won't come out." That's what we did. She in blue gown (love) and he in dress attire. Its sounds simple, but love is just that, SIMPLE. They spoke from the heart. He promised love and respect. She vowed a life of happiness. I cried big fat tears listening this genuine proclamation and seeing how they looked at each other. The sun even came out for pictures.  Its doesn't get better than that.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Oh, it puts a smile in my heart

Has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

Johnathan & Michelle {Sunnyside Plantation Wedding} This wedding was a highlight of mine this year. Jonathan, I have known since high school. He is the most laid back and genuine person I have known. I was thrilled when I saw he was engaged and over the moon when they contacted me to document their day.

Michelle and I talked wedding plans over coffee and he sat there happily listening to her dreams for the day. She brings out the best in him in every way. Michelle has a quiet peace about her that draws you in and a laugh that is contagious.

We spent the days before to anti-rain dances. They worked!!!! The sun was out and warm for the big day. Sunnyside Plantation is perfect for that southern feel and the perfect backdrop for "I do" I spent the day listening to friends and family tell stories. The guys were hilarious and kept us on out toes all day.

They laughed and danced. They kissed and laughed. We watched and laughed. I think you are getting the picture. Jonathan and Michelle are the luckiest in love. Painter2015-1Painter2015-2Painter2015-8Painter2015-14Painter2015-27Painter2015-34Painter2015-53Painter2015-55Painter2015-57Painter2015-67Painter2015-70Painter2015-82Painter2015-86Painter2015-92Painter2015-105Painter2015-118Painter2015-125Painter2015-127Painter2015-130Painter2015-155Painter2015-172Painter2015-182Painter2015-183Painter2015-198Painter2015-203Painter2015-220Painter2015-231Painter2015-249Painter2015-251Painter2015-256Painter2015-261Painter2015-267Painter2015-274Painter2015-277Painter2015-279Painter2015-287Painter2015-298Painter2015-314Painter2015-325Painter2015-326Painter2015-327Painter2015-335Painter2015-337Painter2015-347Painter2015-355Painter2015-362Painter2015-371Painter2015-383Painter2015-387Painter2015-398Painter2015-403Painter2015-452Painter2015-496Painter2015-498

Emerald & Austin Beach Wedding When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks. ~Natalie Clifford Barney

I got the call about this Wednesday wedding on the Sunday before it happened... I knew right away that these were my kinda people. If you know me, then you know I'm a "on a whim" kinda girl. It was going to be a very small wedding with only his family and a couple friends on the beach. Emerald and I chatted about wedding things like old friends and it was set. I got to the beach house and all the guys were in the living room like nothing was going on. The girls had turned a room into a blizzard of dresses and makeup and shoes and everything else you need on you wedding day. But they were having fun, the love in the room between these friends set the tone for the rest of the day.

Austin and Emerald walked each other down the isle and exchanged vows they had written. Emerald vowed to love him forever and always eat crackers in bed, much to Austin's dismay. He swore to make her laugh everyday and give her the life she deserved. Everyone laughed and cried. They kissed and rice crispys were thrown. Yes!! RICE CRISPYS... LOL  Then came my favorite part. They let me play... Photographers don't often get clients that let them just play. So with the little light we had left I got wet and sandy with the newly weds. I hope that they had as much fun as I did. Wish them all the love and happy they can handle. <3

One of the hardest things as a photographer is waiting to show off  images that you love. Michelle is so laid back and beautiful. I have been chomping at the bit to get these out into the world. We had so much fun walking around downtown and talking wedding things.
