Bronwyn [Columbia, SC Headshot Photographer]

It’s been a while since I had headshots up on the blog. This is Bronwyn, who needed some headshots for work. Since she didn’t need much, we just did one outfit rather than two or three like I do with a normal headshot session. And I think they came out just right!

Allie and Mark [Columbia, SC Engagement Photographer]

I’m really going to have to work on my posting reliability! I hope you’re all having a great summer out there. :p I’ve been enjoying mine a little too much, and letting the blog hang silent…but now I’m back, and I’m starting with Allie and Mark’s engagement session at Riverwalk Park in West Columbia.

Allie and Mark are so cute together. They were planning a wedding in another town, but wanted engagement portraits here in Columbia, so they called me. Both said they weren’t to big on getting their photos taken…but the camera loves them. :)

The Rowell Girls [Lexington, SC Family Photographer]

I love shooting with the Rowells. As you can see here and here, they’re all so pretty! This shoot was mainly for Evie, and the goal was a smile. Never in my life have a had such a serious kid at a photo shoot. Not unhappy at all, just observant and serious…which is super cute on such a little face. When we finally got smiles, it was such a victory!

Kilzer-Bliss Wedding [Columbia, SC Wedding Photographer]

It’s spring, so it’s time to get some weddings up on the blog. :) And I like that it’s kicking off with Erin and Jason’s super sweet wedding, especially since their first look was in a field surrounded by yellow flowers. Plus, who wouldn’t want to marry Captain America?

And be sure to read the vendor details for Erin’s description of her ring!

Bride’s shoes – Nina (purchased at DSW)

Ring: “Jason designed & had my ring hand-crafted from a family jeweler. It is one of a kind, custom designed. The design comes from the Celtic fisherman’s knot. Fishermen would tie this knot before leaving on a trip and leave it with their wives. The wives would leave the knots tied until their husbands returned & they could untie it together.”

The Hugghins Family [Atlanta, GA Family Photographer]

I love shooting with this family. We’ve had great shoots at Stone Mountain and Piedmont Park, but this time, we went a little off the beaten path…shooting on the grounds of a pretty church near Ponce de Leon. I can’t believe how fast Jack is growing. I love all his expressions! :)

The Sadler Family [Saluda River Club Testimonial]

After another month of silence from this very bad blogger (sorry!), I’m back with the Sadler family’s testimonial portrait session at Saluda River Club. We had a pretty fall day for this shoot, and lucked into blooms that went perfectly with the girls’ adorable outfits.

The Williams Family [Atlanta, GA Family Photographer]

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get the Williams family’s shoot up on the blog. Especially because I was so excited with how they turned out. I couldn’t have had better subjects or prettier light!

Jessie and Mike [Atlanta, GA Wedding Photographer]

Jessie and I have known each other for a long time…since we were both Livsey Leopards. :) When she contacted me to see if I could photograph her wedding, I was SO excited. I knew that with her artistic eye and style, it was going to be an amazing evening. And she did not disappoint. From her gorgeous red dress to the amazing venue, Jessie and Mike’s wedding was fantastic. I’m so happy I got to play a roll in it!

Katie and Joe [Columbia, South Carolina Engagement Photographer]

When Katie contacted me about doing her engagement portraits at the Columbia Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens, I was definitely excited. The weather was perfect and everything was blooming! We spent a few hours checking out the gardens and getting super sweet photos of the two of them. These are just a few of my favorites.
