Kelly & Christopher at First Baptist Church

As the doors slowly opened, a hushed reverence fell over the sanctuary where everyone had gathered to share in the uniting of Kelly & Christopher.  Their eyes locked.  And as I quietly captured each of their expressions, I knew in my heart that I was witnessing a public profession of true love this day!  Kelly & Christopher were married at the First Baptist Church.  Between the beautiful colors of the bridesmaids dresses and the bouquets, the intimate moments between father and daughter, mother and son, husband and wife, all the rich historic backdrops of downtown Charleston, and the burst of drama while photographing these two in their first sunset as a married couple, I felt like I was being handed beautiful image after beautiful image.  I had waaay too many favorites to fit in this blog post.  J  So enjoy the music video with even more favorites at  Then head over to to see even more.

 Kelly & Christopher, I was truly blessed during my time with you on your wedding day.  May God bless you as you seek His will through your new life together! 

Jackie & Chris at Sunrise Presbyterian Church

Jackie & Chris’ wedding has been a long time coming!  But through all the ups and downs of Chris’ fight with cancer, the families rallied together and victory was claimed!!!  I truly believe the difficult times in life draw us closer and strengthen our bonds beyond measure.  I was witness to the evidence of these bonds time and time again throughout Jackie & Chris’ wedding day.  It is such an honor and a privilege to have been able to share in this special day with such an AMAZING couple! 

Jackie & Chris were married at the gorgeous Sunrise Presbyterian Church on Sullivan’s Island.  After the ceremony, we walked across the beach to sink our naked toes in the sand and get some fun shots of the wedding party.  Then we joined the PARTAAAAY on the Carolina Girl Yacht.  I always love working with Captain Bob and his crew…they are top notch and always make sure everyone has a GREAT time on board! 

Enjoy Jackie & Chris’ fun Music Video at  Then head over to to see the rest of their photos.  CONGRATULATIONS Jackie & Chris.  You guys are a very special couple to me and I will never forget sharing this beautiful day with you!

Lisa & Clay Rock Bowen’s Island

Lizzie & Charlotte are the unwitting masterminds behind “THE PERFECT COUPLE” that is Lisa & Clay!  J  They are the ones that invited Lisa to St. Michael’s when she moved here and introduced them.  When he proposed, Clay planned this huge, fun, elaborate deal.  He got permission to get the key to the bell-tower at the church, took Lisa to the top right at sunset, and proposed up there overlooking all of Charleston!  She was very surprised.  They went out to dinner afterwards and Lisa says he acted like a nut, telling everyone he passed “SHE SAID YES!!!”. Believe it or not, Clay actually picked out her ring on his own.  I love that!  And I LOVE the ring too.  It’s so classy yet unique…just like Lisa.  These two are absolutely perfect for each other and I am so honored that they have asked me to be a part of this special time in their lives. 

Jennifer & Robert

Jennifer & Robert were a BLAST to work with!  J  They really opened up to me.  And we had a great time together on our “walk-about” downtown.  We came away with some fantastic images that I think capture their personalities to a “T”!

Amy & Evan at The Mills House

Amy & Evan were married at The Mills House on Saturday. My good friend, Robbin, was helping me cover the action. We had a BLAST from the minute we got there until the Carriage whisked the happy couple into the night. 🙂

I photographed Amy & Evan’s eSession out on Folly Beach earlier this year. They did such a great job that we ended up with tons of fantastic images. So we picked a bunch to put in one of our popular Photo Guest Books, which was a hit!

Amy & Evan went to MUSC together, working there before moving to Richmond, where Amy is a nurse and Evan is a Doctor of Internal Medicin. They are so AMAZING together! After the slideshow, Click Here to see the rest of their photos.


Kristin & Eric at The Sandcastle

Kristin & Eric had a FABULOUS wedding at The Sandcastle on Kiawah Island last week! They live in Winston-Salem, but Kristin spent many fun summers on Kiawah during her younger years. So it was only fitting that she add yet ANOTHER wonderful memory to her collection of “Happy Days at Kiawah”! 🙂

Enjoy the slideshow then Click Here to see the rest of their Online Gallery.

CONGRATULATIONS, Kristin & Eric! You guys were AWESOME to work with!!!

Nicole & J.B. at Legend Oaks

I had the pleasure of being a part of something really special last weekend! Nicole & JB were referrals to us from Brittany & Mitch, two of my FAVORITE clients in the whole world! And I’m sure Nicole & JB will become the same. 🙂

They are both so fun and full of energy. Nicole was absolutely beautiful on her wedding day. She had this radiant smile that is either indicative of a wonderful day at the salon…or true love! (I don’t think she spent the day at the salon…HA!) JB is such a great guy. We had an absolute BLAST together. Though he’s been in the US many year, he’s originally from France. And since I’d grown up in the Congo, where once upon a time I was pretty fluent in French…I had a great time slipping into his mother tongue every now and then.

Their ceremony was held at the scenic Legend Oaks Golf Club. And we all went to historic Middleton Place for pictures before heading to her parent’s fantastic spread for the reception. Though his family couldn’t make the journey, his Host Parents were absolutely wonderful…as were Nicole’s parents and brothers. I specifically selected the song for their slideshow to lend a European flare to their images. So enjoy the show! Then head over to to see the rest of their pictures. Alors, FELICITATION Nicole & J.B. !!!

Our Hearts are Sad

Abby & Dan were married at Alhambra Hall on July 28th, 2007. I remember their wedding like it was YESTERDAY! They were such a beautiful couple with so much joy in their hearts and a real connection with each other. I recently received the sad news that Abby just lost her battle with cancer. You can read her story here: Cami & I were shocked when we heard the news. Our hearts and prayers go out to Dan and her family during this difficult time.

It was an honor to have been a part of this special day in Abby’s life many years ago. Her passing is a powerful reminder to me that what I do is not just a job. Creating beautiful images that tell the story of special people, bonds of love, and the gift that is LIFE is something that I am humbled to be a part of!!!

Ashley & Joseph are Married

Ashley was the Maid of Honor in a beautiful wedding I shot a few years ago at Middleton Place for her friend, also named Ashley. This past weekend the “Two Ashleys from Ashley Hall” reversed rolls. 🙂 Ashley & JR held their ceremony and reception at the always photogenic Wickliffe House. I love the dramatic stair and bold colors throughout this historic home! After the beautiful ceremony, the reception spread throughout the house and out onto the tented lawn. Everything was elaborately decorated and everyone had a grand time. There were touching moments during the toasts and funny moments during the dancing, and everything in between. I had an AWESOME time with Ashley & JR and felt like part of the family by the end. Scurrying through a barrage of bubbles and jumping into their Black Cab get-away car, Ashley & JR waved as the drove off into the night. CONGRATULATIONS you guys!!!
