One day I’ll be able to truly put into words how special this day really was. So for now, I’ll just say how eternally grateful I am for every single creative (and my sweet hubby, of course) who made this day possible.

On a quiet little street on a rainy afternoon is where I met Stephanie and Stephen for the first time. They welcomed me into their sweet little getaway spot for the weekend, and I found myself immediately at home. This sweet couple made their way to Charleston to celebrate another year together in marriage and to quietly, joyfully celebrate the new life that would soon make them a family of three.
Located in the heart oh Hodges, SC just outside of Greenwood you’ll find this gem of a wedding venue. Cokesbury College is where I did my first photo session ever with one of my favorite families (Rebecca, if you’re reading this…Hi <3) back in 2012. It was such an amazing blessing to be back here with Lewis and Kate on their wedding day. In every room, you will find the most tasteful furniture, antique mirrors, and the gorgeous natural light pouring in. The bridal suite is painted the softest shade of blue and old hardwood floors
A beautiful statue greets you as you walk through the front gate and through the garden. As you walk in every room, you will find the most tasteful furniture, antique mirrors, and the gorgeous natural light pouring in. The bridal suite is painted the softest shade of blue and old hardwood floors greet you throughout. A curved iron staircase takes you to the second floor, where you will find the chapel. Sunlight pours through the large windows on both sides showing the way to beautiful pews from wall to wall.
Brandy has been my “go to” model for the last few years and has always been the sweetest to work with. All of our editorial shoots have lined up seamlessly with her real wedding! Over the last several months I’ve been so honored to get the chance to know Brandy and Joe as a couple.
In a music filled atmosphere, on a rainy Sunday afternoon, we created these images together and I’m thrilled to share them with you just TWO days before their wedding this weekend! Joe and Brandy, I hope your marriage is filled with every bit of joy you can imagine, lots of forgiveness in the hard times, and a lifetime of holding each other just like this.
The first time I met Alex I knew we were meant to be friends. After deciding to finally meet up for brunch following a few months of encouraging each other’s businesses on Instagram, we finally met in person! And Alex was every bit as warm-hearted and light filled as her incredible film work! Alex, it is such a blessing to call you friend, and it was such a joy to have the honor of documenting some sweet moments for the two of you! May you have many many more sweet years together!
