Laura and Gary, where do I start with these two? Laura has been such a part of my photography journey! You may recognize their faces from their mini-mony last year. Laura booked me in October of 2019 for that wedding. I was 18, 2 years past high school, Andrew and I had been together for […]

Andrew and Jessica, where do I start with these two? If you’ve been following me for a while, you may recognize Andrew from being in our wedding! Andrew and my Andrew go way back. They met in college and through a broken arm, countless debates and chess battles, have been good friends ever since. The […]

Katelyn and Alex are both such cool people! Alex is an engineer who on the side is the president of a state non-profit for the preservation of caves. Katelyn is a teacher of the deaf! And they’re getting married in an old brewery cave! We had so much fun with them last week when we […]

Kelsey and Brannon brought SO MUCH JOY to their session! These two were an absolute blast. I always like to say that fun people make for fun photos and that never rang truer than at this shoot! These two are getting married next year at the beautiful Haue Valley! Kelsey and Brannon met in Chicago […]

On Monday we got to meet Ashley and Alex and photograph their engagement session! These two have known each other for a long time. Alex proposed to Ashley last year in front of the zoo which is one of their favorite places to go together! So we decided to start their engagement pictures there as […]

Danae and Stephen tied the knot at Skylight Chapel in Taylors, SC. Stephen is the brother of Andrew’s best friend so it was great to be among friends! Danae and Stephen met in biology class in college, but it wasn’t until their professor told Stephen he should ask Danae out (in front of her) that […]

From the very beginning of getting to know Amber, I was hooked. At the very first introduction – her paragraph submitted in my contact form, I knew her wedding would be amazing. Amber got in touch with me a few months ago and told me all about her and Cory. How they knew each other […]

We had SO much fun with these two! Andrew is one of (my) Andrew’s best friends, and in fact, he was one of the groomsmen in our wedding. So naturally, when we knew he was going to propose to his girlfriend, Jessica, we were over the moon excited for them. Well, it turned out that […]

On Saturday we got to photograph the cutest little elopement! Braelee had reached out a while back to see if we were available in July for their elopement. They had originally been planning a destination wedding in Florida, but things fell through and Covid happened. So they made a change of plans. And it was […]

I know I say this about every engagement session, but guys – these are my new favorites!! Amber reached out soon after I posted Anna and Ryan’s engagement photos – they’re friends, which is really cool – I love referrals so much! I was immediately struck by the fact that she probably had the longest […]
