Wedding Festivals

Hello Readers! :)
It's that time of year and I'm so excited about this Saturday. I'll be at the wedding festivals at the Hyatt in downtown Greenville from 10am to 3pm. I'm booth number 23. So if you'd like to meet or just stop by and say "hi" this is the oppportunity. Plus it's a great time to see new studio albums, recent work, and my new engagement guestbook. I'm super stoked about it! Ok, hope to see you there.

Corey's Bridal

I am so excited that I can finally post these teasers. I have been just dying to, but have been patiently waiting until Corey's big day which was yesterday. :) Congrats Corey! You and Phillip were just too cute and I loved every minute of your wedding. Everyone was wonderful. Please stayed tuned because I'll have teasers from her wedding in the next couple of weeks. For now, please enjoy these knockout shots of Corey from her bridal session.

Merry and Walt

Merry and Walt were married on November 28th. It was a fabulous day with fabulous people and fabulous colors and fabulous weather. Did I mention it was fabulous? Well it was. I just adored the bride. She booked me almost a year ago and I gotta say that she has been one of the easiest brides to work with all year. Not only is she easy going, but she runs a tight ship and everything was well planned and on time. I love this. Seriously, it makes the day so smooth. Next to the bride, I must give honorable mention to the mother of the bride because she is one of the calmest I've ever seen. She just soaked it all in and was so helpful to me personally when I arrived. :) Loved it.

Thank you so much everyone. It was wonderful. OK, here are my favs from this fabulous day. Enjoy!

I love this shot. Nothin but candid baby.

One of my favorite group shots all year. I think it's because no one looks uncomfortable for the camera. It's like we're all old friends. Love it.

Carrington and my new chair

I just LOVE this picture. Carrington is my stylist little girl so we have a bit of bartering going on, which is sooo cool. :) I took some shots of her little girl the other day and I just thought this one was so sweet. We couldn't get her to sit on the chair, but she would sit in front of it. Works for me. I bought the chair from a local antique store. I just think it gives a nice "kick" if you will, to some images. I certainly don't want to "over do it" like I'm tempted to, so you may see it appear from time to time. ;)

Megan and John Mark

So far this year I know I've made over 30,000 photographs as do most photographers, but these few images are probably the nearest and dearest to my heart. These images are of my little brother and his beautiful fiance. I'm so excited he has found someone to spend the rest of his life with and I was super stoked when they asked me if I would do the photography for their wedding. What more could a big sister want?! These two lovebirds live in the great city of New Orleans and I live in SC so over Thanksgiving when they were in SC we headed out to Clemson University's campus where JM and I went for our undergrad. It was great walking around campus together and reminiscing about our time there as college students. :)

JM and I are only 18 months a part so growing up we've always been tight. Megan brings a nice chemistry to their relationship and our whole family. She is of course stunning, but more than that she is grounded, smart, and always calm (something I could learn from fo sho!)

I love you both and can't wait to be with you on your big day. :) much love, Olivia

Beach Trip with the Gambles

Ok, this post is WAY overdue. I went to the beach with my girlfriend Carrie back in October and I'm just now posting these. Yes, I'm a horrible friend. I'll explain a little... Carrie invited me down to the beach to be her guest for the family vacation and since I now work from home full time it seemed perfect to me. Can you really beat having a laptop, beach, good food, and friends?! Heck no!! So here are a few from our walk on the beach and some from our boat ride out to the Charleston Harbor. Matt wants to blow that palmetto tree one up real huge for the house. I like it. :)
