Megan's Bridal

Wanna hear something funny...I have 4 brides this year named Megan. I don't know, it's funny to me. The best part is that they are all just drop dead gorgeous. Here's my latest Megan in all her splendor. Her wedding was May 1 so I'm safe to post my favorites from her bridal. Megan and her now husband live in Charleston where they are now in residency status for med school. You really don't have to twist my arm to go to Charleston so I was delighted to go there for her bridal. The lighting in Charleston is some of the best out there. You seriously walk down the street and see doorways and alleyways just filled with gorgeous light so that is what we did, walk around the city. I love my job. Please enjoy, no really, I insist. :)

My favorite shot of the day. I love how I just caught her here.

work it, work it

Ok, I LOVE this shot. It reminds me of an NYC wedding photographer that I adore, Christain Oth. He is amazing. I love his work.

Now that my Brides Know...

I believe it's time I shared the news with everyone else. I've got a bun in the oven. :) Most of my friends and family out there know the news, but there may be some who haven't heard yet so I wanted to make it official. I'm currently 17 weeks along and due October 18th. I find out the first week of June what we are having and let me tell you, it is killing me to find out. I do want to say a special "thank you" to my spring brides who have been so wonderful to me at their weddings. They have been so considerate and gone above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and fed. That has meant more than you could ever know. So without any further delay, here is a shot of me on Mother's Day that Matt took.

Leanne Hiott

Now that Leanne is a married woman I am free to share some "oh so fabulous" images from her bridal session. Most of my brides know already, but I love, love, LOVE bridal sessions. I live for them, well not really, but you know what I mean. Anyway, Leanne and I decided on downtown G-Vegas for her shoot and she was like up for everything I suggested. Great girl! Holla! I honestly couldn't get enough of that red hair she's got. It just loves the camera, which is why there are no black and whites. I gave her some, but I was in love with the color images because of that hair. AHHHHH gorgeous. Ok, enjoy...

Corey and Will

First let me say that I'm sorry for my lack of posting lately. This spring season of weddings has kicked my butt to say the least. Don't mistake me, this is not complaining, just explaining. With 12 weddings in April and May alone things have been a little crazy. I have a lot of blogging to do so be watching for more posts this week. :) YAY!

Now to the lovely couple. This is Corey and Will and I'm actually not photographing their wedding. It's ok though, because they are going to Caribbean for that. Hey wait! That's not ok, I should be going with them, right?! Nah it's cool. I'm just happy to have met them because they are so cool. I love it when a bride calls me and says, "I want something different that you haven't done." uuuh ok, SOLD! That is exactly what we did. I told Corey about this run down parking lot near my house (no i don't live in the ghetto) and that I wanted to take a bride and groom there. I also took her to another secret location that another bride had introduced me to and I won't reveal its location until after her wedding. hee hee sneaky, I know. Anyway, both locations were a hit and we had a great time

Thanks Corey and Will and have fun in the sun!

Emily's Bridal

Now that she's a married woman I believe it's time to post some of my favs from her bridal session. :) Emily is from Pauline SC, which is a little town outside of Spartanburg. I've seriously falling in love with this little area since meeting Emily and Mark. I first met them in Pauline for their engagement session on Mark's parent's property and Emily decided to do her bridal at the same place and I was more than pleased by this decision. I seriously could not get enough of this red barn or this gorgeous bride. :)

Ok enjoy!

Maryann + Marcus 3.28.09

This has been a crazy spring to say the least. Just in the last three weeks I've had six weddings, but I'm seriously not complaining. I couldn't be happier for the business especially in this economy. :) Maryann and Marcus were my first couple to start off this season so I'm super excited to share their images with you. These two love birds were married at St Paul United Methodist in downtown Greenville with the reception following at The Sawmill.

Now a little about the lovely couple. Maryann is this cute little thang and Marcus just towers over her. I love it because it reminds me of Matt and that he is 6'2" to my 5'1". They were super adorable the whole day with big smiles and soft touches. These two are truly bffs on top of everything else. They've been together for 7 years and went to Clemson University together, which is near and dear to my heart because that is where I met Matt.

On a side note, Maryann wanted me to give a special shout out to all her friends and family that helped with everything and made it all come together for her and Marcus. Thanks guys!

Anyway, now for some fab shots from their day. I hope you enjoy and to Maryann and Marcus - thanks so much for everything, you were a delight to work with. :)

The flowers are by The Flower Peddler. I think they did a fab job.

The lovely cake is by Coutoure Cakes. They are one of my favorite cake makers in G-Vegas.
