Alison & Kevin at Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian

Alison & Kevin had a GORGEOUS ceremony last Saturday!  The sky was blue, the temperature was perfect, and Alison & Kevin were a BLAST to hang out with!!!

I met up with them at Alhambra Hall where the wedding party was getting ready.  Kevin & Alison shared their “First Glance” shortly after that, giving us time to get some fun wedding party photos before heading to the church.  Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian has a beautiful historic sanctuary that I love photographing in.  We always obey each church’s protocol, even if it means no photography inside the sanctuary during the worship service.  But I was kindly allowed to polish the glass windows at the back to shoot through them from the foyer, and also mount my fisheye remote camera on the balcony for some unique shots.

After the ceremony, Alison & Kevin burst from the church to an excited gathering of friends and family clapping and blowing bubbles as they rode off on their horse-drawn carriage.  The reception followed at the always-popular Alhambra Hall.  It was an EXCITING party with lots of laughter, emotional toasts, crazy dancing, and a beautiful sunset for some of my favorite shots of the day.  Later, a full moon rose in time for me to grab a couple dramatic images before Alison & Kevin made their grand escape among waving multi-colored glow sticks.  What a FANTASTIC day!   To see the rest of their photos, head over to

Alison & Kevin, may the joyous glow of your love for each other never fade…

Tamarae & David at Fort Johnson Baptist

Tamarae & David finally tied the knot last weekend after about 6 years together.  They met freshman year at George Mason, where Tamarae may or may not have stalked David until he made her his girlfriend.  J  She is such a bubbly, fun-loving extrovert, has a flare for the dramatic, and enjoys drama and art.  While he is quiet and reserved…that is until you get to REALLY know him.  He sings, writes music, and plays in a band.  In fact, he recorded and sang the song they did their first dance to.  They complement each other so well.  Which made their wedding day a true joy for me to be a part of!  

The wedding was held at the gorgeous Fort Johnson Baptist Church.  Afterwards we went downtown for a fun photo shoot, where they were picked up by Palmetto Carriage for a quiet ride to the historic Francis Marion Hotel for their reception.  I got to work with some of my favorite vendors, including Jeff Bradt Video, Cakes by Kasarda, Jay Maxwell’s Music by Request, the Mike Wolk Jazz Group, Seithel’s Florist, and of course the fabulous Caroline Bean from the Francis Marion.  Tamarae’s dress came from Blush, the bridesmaids dresses were from the amazing LulaKate, and the gentleman were outfitted at Berlin’s Tuxedos.  Everything went as smooth as could be.  After watching the fun Music Video at, head over to to see the rest of their photos.

Tamarae & David, it was such an honor and a pleasure being part of your special day!!!


Amanda & Tim at Planters Inn

She’s an OT.  He’s a PT.  They work for the same company.  They have a chocolate lab.  They drove all night to get here from Ohio.  They are TOTALLY IN LOVE!!!  Amanda & Tim, along with their closest family and friends, came to Charleston for a beautiful, elegant, and intimate Destination Wedding one week ago today.  Their ceremony was held in the gorgeous courtyard at the historic Planters Inn.  The always amazing Christy Loftin directed and officiated the service.  While the one and only Nikolai Svishev provided acustical accompanyment on his magical 8-string guitar.  Laughter and lively conversation filled the room during Amanda & Tim’s Peninsula Grill reception.  The food was AMAZING!  Plus the center piece at each table was an original cake from Kaminski’s “most excellent” desserts…yummm!!!  Visit to check out the Music Video of Amanda & Tim’s Big Day.  Then head over to to see the rest of their Online Gallery.  CONGRATULATIONS Amanda & Tim!

Lisa & Clay’s Charleston Wedding at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church

I have had such an honor getting to know Lisa & Clay over the past year.  Their wedding last weekend will stay with me forever!  Lisa is a teacher here in Charleston.  Clay is a speech therapist.  So they both have a huge heart for helping kids.  They are both such genuine, sweet, and compassionate individuals…you couldn’t find a more adorable couple!  When I first met them, they’d been dating about a year.  Their friend Lizzie gets props for inviting Lisa to join St. Michael’s where they met.  And their friend Charlotte had the honor of introducing them.  Clay picked her ring out on his own (it’s GORGEOUS!) and totally surprised her by taking her up to the church bell-tower right at sunset and proposing to her.  I’m a hopeless romantic at heart…so stories like this really get me.  J

The wedding day was absolutely perfect.  My good friend and fellow photographer, Kellie McCann, joined me on the big day.  We met up with the girls at The Marriott where they were getting ready.  The ceremony was at the beautiful and historic St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.  Afterwards we did wedding party photos at White Point Gardens on The Battery.  And finally we ended back at The Marriott for a rockin’ reception.  Check out the music video with some of my favorite shots at  Then head over to to see the rest of their wedding gallery.

CONGRATULATIONS Lisa & Clay!  You guys are AWESOME!  May God bless you as you begin this new journey together…

Heather & Marcus in Fernandina Beach

Last week Cami & I had a really cool eSession with Heather & Marcus in Fernandina Beach, FL!!!  They are such a great couple…young, gorgeous, and full of energy!  They’ve been dating a couple years now and last September Marcus popped “The Question”.  J  They are from the Jacksonville area and selected Fernandina Beach as the backdrop for their portraits.  It’s such a cute little historic town with lots of texture and ambiance, plus a great view of the sunset!  Here are a few of my favorites…
