Alexx & Joseph at Wesley United Methodist Church

CONGRATULATIONS to Alexx & Joseph!!! They may have to hold off until the fall to have their big reception. But instead of cancelling their wedding, this beautiful couple decided not to let the corona-virus keep them from becoming husband and wife!  🙂

It was such a pleasure being there to capture Alexx & Joseph’s vows for them. They are such an adorable couple!  The only people present were the 5 family members and myself. I took all the proper precautions to maintain social distancing and practice safe hygiene. So there was no chance of spreading the virus. Yet we could all be there to celebrate with them as they enjoyed their special day, joining together in holy matrimony.

After the ceremony, Alexx’s dad (who owns Midway Tours Limousine Service) drove them to several picturesque spots near the church for some photos. It was a gorgeous day out. Joseph was looking sharp with his sweet-grass rose for a boutonniere. And Alexx was absolutely stunning in her Cinderella-style wedding gown!

Alexx & Joseph, we wish you all the best for a wonderful life ahead as you begin your new journey together!!!

Katie’s Bridal Portraits at Charlestowne Landing

Now that Katie & Grayson are married, I’m SO EXCITED to be able to finally reveal a few images from her fabulous Bridal Shoot!!!

Katie, her Mom, and her Maid of Honor all met up with me one afternoon last week at the picturesque Charlestowne Landing. This historic state park preserves the original site of the first permanent English settlement in the Carolinas! How cool is that?!?

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The light was amazing. And Katie was absolutely STUNNING in her wedding gown! We had a blast and came away with some wonderful images to honor her beautiful dress and to commemorate this special time in her life!

Maniesha & Travis Part 2: Downtown After-Shoot

After their beautiful wedding, Maniesha & Travis met up with me for a fun After-Shoot in historic downtown Charleston!

We met at Waterfront Park, explored the old French Quarter, stumbled onto some cobblestone streets, found some black iron gates, and even hit up famous Rainbow Row. We had a BLAST, and came up with some really cool photos together. Both Maniesha and Travis are very creative and I loved all their amazing ideas!

CONGRATULATIONS to Charleston’s newest newlyweds!!! 🙂

Charlestowne Landing Bridal Portrait


That’s the one thing I can’t stand about photographing Bridal Shoots!   🙂

I’ve been dying to share images from Catie’s beautiful Bridal Session last month. But of course her gorgeous wedding gown had to be kept a secret until the Big Day. Now that her and Justin tied the knot this weekend, I can finally show off how amazing Catie looked in her elegant and unique wedding dress.  The waiting is over!!!

I love this southern tradition of photographing Bridal Portraits about a month before the wedding. It’s quite likely that this is the most expensive garment a young lady will ever own in her life! Sure she’ll have a few shots of herself in the dress on her wedding day. But with the hustle and hurry of that stressful day, there just isn’t time to truly do it justice.  I always encourage my brides to schedule a Bridal Shoot to truly document how gorgeous they look in the gown of their choice.

These fun “fashion style” photo shoots are scheduled for a more relaxed time and place. Hair and make-up is fresh. It can be planned around the best light of the day (instead of being squeezed in wherever it fits among the zillions of other pictures to be taken on the wedding day). Due to time constraints, all the photos on wedding day are done at the wedding or reception venue. Bridal Sessions allow brides to pick a totally different location. Maybe it’s somewhere special to them (where they had their first date?). Maybe their wedding is downtown, but they want some photos at a plantation? A Bridal Shoot is a great time to be creative and come up with some cool and creative wedding photos that simply can’t be done on the wedding day due to the constraints of time and space.

Catie & Justin LOVE the many beautiful plantations around Charleston! After all, their wedding was held at the historic Boone Hall Plantation. However, leading up to the wedding, they also had photo shoots with me at Runnymede Plantation, Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, and finally these inspirational images from Charlestowne Landing.

Catie…you were absolutely STUNNING!!! What a pleasure it was to share this afternoon with you and your parents, capturing your amazing spirit, and documenting the spirit of your stunning wedding gown.

Downtown Charleston Bridal Shoot

Lisa & Clay were finally married last weekend.  So it’s safe for me to finally reveal some of Lisa’s gorgeous Bridal Portraits from her shoot in charming downtown CharlestonJ  I posted some of their really cool Engagement Portraits here:  But I just couldn’t post any with Lisa’s dress until now for fear of Clay “snooping” around to get a peek at her dress!  Just kidding…Clay would never do that.
