• WELCOME TO THE BLOG!

    Hello! This blog is like a journal. Here you can scroll for hours and see images from every shoot that we’ve been a part of, as well as a little information about each. Just looking to view certain types of sessions that we’ve photographed, such as families, or engagements? Click on the “What to View” tab above, or use the search bar to find something specific. Here you’ll find lots and lots of images and see shoots more in-depth. If you just want to see our top favorite images, without all the extra stuff, check out our “Website” by clicking the tab above.

For the Hadi Family shoot we headed to their home. I love doing sessions in or around peoples homes because they are so comfortable, and you get to see peoples unique personal touches. (I loved the family room rug with so many colors!!) We had a very playful session filled with throwing of confetti and rolling around in bed! Here are some of my favorite photos from the session:

Since we traveled cross-country for Michelle & Ryan’s wedding in Charleston SC, we couldn’t bring along our own photobooth and props.  They really wanted us behind the camera for it because we know how to make a party happen, so they put together one just for the wedding for us to use!  Photobooths are such a great way to be able to capture photos of all your guests and from my experience, they really help guests loosen up for the reception!  Here’s just a few from the night that made me chuckle:)

I love rehearsal dinners.  The excitement of everyone being together, the excitement before the wedding, the toasts and speeches, and tears and laughter.  It’s always such a fun and emotional evening!  Michelle & Ryan’s rehearsal dinner was no exception.  It was held at Stars Restaurant in Downtown Charleston SC, which was a fantastic venue with a private rooftop cocktail area that added to the evening.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the night!

For the Henderson session we headed to Cathedral Park, and these two had the most adorable golden retriever puppy! She was so much fun to have in their session. Aside from the puppy these two were so cute together, and the three of them make a perfect little family! Here are some of my favorite shots from the session:
