Chari and Mark

Chari and Mark were married at La Bastide on November 8th. The was the second of two small intimate weddings I've photographed this month. I gotta say that I really enjoy weddings done in this setting. Everyone is so relaxed and they seem to really soak in each moment. This means a lot to me. Mark and Chari had a very sweet ceremony with only family in attendance. It was absolutely one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. :)

Thanks so much for letting share your day with you.

Kim's Bridal

Let me just start by saying that Kim is simply breathtaking. She gives a whole new meaning to dark hair and green eyes. I love it.

Here are a few favorites from our session. As you can see she got me an "all access" pass the rooftop of the Poinsett Hotel. I felt very special to say the least. The wedding is this coming January and I am super excited about it. :)

Thanks Kim. It was absolutely wonderful.

Alana and Jeff

Here are a few favorites from my time with Alana and Jeff last week. I particularly loved that they brought their golden retriever, Maggie. Matt and I have a golden also, so I was super excited to play with this honeybun. Too cute!

For their session we basically just drove down hwy290 and pulled off at a couple stops we really liked. We did get kind of run off from one spot, but who cares. Then we ended the session in dowtown Greer. It seemed to really fit them and we had a great time together. Can't wait for the wedding in July.

Site Music

Today I needed a little break. Yes, I realize I have tons of editing to do, albums to design, vendors to send shots to and the list goes on...but I took just an hour to update some songs on my site. Music is SO powerful. I'm pretty much always listening. I play www.pandora.com continuously as I work from home each day. :) Does it get any better? Anyway, I updated the song you hear when you first go to the site and also wedding II, wedding III, and the couples gallery. I love it. Each song is so me and since it's my art I guess I should play the music my photographs make me feel. Let me know what you think.

Laura and Chris

Can I first just say that I loved, loved, LOVED this wedding. Well, I love them all, but this on really got me. :) It was in Charleston at the William Aiken House (see the previous post for Laura's bridal session at the same location) and it was high fashion, tasteful, sweet, beautiful and most of all...intimate. I just love small intimate weddings. If Matt and I had it to do over again we would get married on top of Wayah Bald next to the old stone fire tower off the AT and call it a day. :) Not to mention that in this economy a small intimate wedding is definitely a great option if you want to pull out all the stops for great vendors.

So yeah, I just loved it. Everyone was so amazing. I have to give a shout out to Luke Wilson in Charleston who was the wedding planner. He did an amazing job. Also, the bride's sister, Claire, who did the makeup and hair and even gave me a beautiful necklace she made as a gift. See her work at http://www.emilyclairedesigns.com/

Thanks everyone. :)
