Erik & Caroline

8-18-2019


 

We got to meet Erik & Caroline over coffee back in May and help go over a lot for this wedding but, we were so excited as soon as they mentioned their ring Bear. That’s their dog’s name by the way, “Bear”. He was such a good boy and they were such an amazing couple so we knew we would love this wedding day but, I don’t think we actually knew how much!

Fast forward to August 18th, the wedding day! We got there a little early to work on details and say hey to everyone. We felt right at home with the girls and Morgan got to sing along with the Jonas Brothers they had playing in the girls room while photographing some of the makeup and hair getting done which, if I am being honest, is pretty much her natural state of being. So we photographed the details and snuck off with the dress before the guys showed up so Erik didn’t see and then they showed up a little bit later and so we split off and I went with the guys a little bit later. Their entire bridal party pretty much had us laughing the entire day and were easy to work with which is amazing!

Once everyone was ready we setup for a first look but with a surprise twist! She was going to stay in her robe and hide behind her cutout of Buddy the Elf with a bow tie on and it quickly turned into the funniest and cutest moment between the two of them. Right after that moment had finished, we started taking everyone over to where the horses had run up to have some photos of the girls in their custom robes and a few featuring Erik also. It was literally perfect timing for all of the horses to run up to eat and play (one of them was standing over his food and rolling in it being super playful, it was hilarious) so of course we took advantage before the girls all went and got in their dresses. Fast forward a little to the ceremony and we witnessed one of the most beautiful and intimate ceremonies where they exchanged their own hand written vows to each other and talked about how they met in Ocean City 10 years ago, how they had time apart during college but never completely, how she straight up called it that they would get married one day even though he thought she was crazy, how they lift each other up time and time again and now after all these years, they finally got to tie the knot! We loved hearing all of the vows but, the man vowed to make her all the Rosemary/Lavender drinks that her heart desires which seems like a good deal!

Right after the ceremony we hopped into family photos quickly and then whisked them away for some romantic couples photos in the sunset with the horses (we like to call them neigh neighs) and then drove them over to this beautiful pecan orchard right across the road. Perry’s Landing has so much to offer in such a close distance so, we had to take advantage while there was time and it was a blast to let the couple relax a little bit and just enjoy being together and taking it in some. We got them back to the venue with time to spare so they hung out in the house that they got ready in with their bridal party for a bit and then headed up to be announced into the reception. It quickly turned into a beautiful night of fun, laughter, dancing, cake cutting, bouquet tossing, tie throwing and beautiful speeches talking about family and new family that we are excited to go back and listen to for the highlight film soon! Later on after more dancing, we got to send them off with a beautiful sparkler exit which was a perfect color filled end to a perfect wedding day!

Bella Sweet 16 Session

7/9/19


 

This sweet little thing is my baby sister….. 16 and almost grown.

Bella is an amazing dancer and wanted to get some really cool pictures of herself defying gravity for her sweet 16 photos. So of course we were happy to make that happen.

We went to Brick Pond Park in North Augusta, South Carolina and spent a couple hours snapping away and came out with some beautiful shots (I know i’m biased but, it’s easy when you have such a cute subject).

Brendan and Sarah Engagement Session

6/15/19


 

This was an incredibly fun engagement shoot!! Brendan and Sarah are both really into graphic design, which made Jordan really happy…. meaning he could speak nerd with them! We met with this sweet couple at Starbucks to go over what we wanted to do for the engagement shoot. The idea was thrown out for us to travel up to Piedmont Park in Atlanta, and we hopped at the idea. We had yet to be able to do a shoot up there and were eager to see the beautiful scenery.

When the date arrived for us to meet for the engagement shoot, we loaded up the car and traveled up to Atlanta… It took us about two hours to get there and we had a heck of a time finding parking… but man, was it worth it.

Piedmont Park exceeded our expectations. A photo opportunity was found around every corner. After much walking around trying to find Brendan and Sarah, we finally located them at the cutest little gazebo in the center of the park. Guys… this park is HUGE.

I think my favorite part of this shoot was the last couple of shots we got. Just look at that beautiful skyline of the city!

We are so looking forward to this couples wedding next year, and are honored to be apart of every step of the way to their big day.

Keith & Megan Engagement Session

5-11-2019


 

Keith an Megan are just the most adorable couple that are just smitten with each other. We met them at Hammond’s Ferry in North Augusta South Carolina to do a shoot with Keith’s immediate family. We captured many sweet moments with the family as we walked all around the beautiful town. After a while we set off to Brick Pond Park just down the road from where we started and captured some intimate moments between Keith and Megan and their adorable love!

Sadly half way through their engagement shoot it started to rain so we decided to do a part two on another date, which is why we ended up getting such amazing diversity for their session.

We were shocked at the part two portion of the shoot when we got to Pendleton King Park and saw all the breath taking blooms. We have done many shoots at this spot but never before seen this show of colors in their gardens.

We are looking forward to a bright future for these two as they set a date and begin planning for their wedding!

Charlie & Hannah Engagement Session

Charlie & Hannah Engagement (69 of 202).jpg

We had been talking with Hannah’s sister and MOH for a little bit about this couples wedding day since she is planning and handling everything she can for them and it was great to finally get to meet them! They attend school in Virginia and finally both got to come visit and so we took advantage of that and did their engagement session at River Island where some of their family lives. We have to say it was such a beautiful area and we really enjoyed them both and meeting some of their family briefly! Also, Hannah wanted all of the pretty and warm sunset photo vibes and boy did we get them later in the session!
