Angela and Kyle decided to make their dream come true, and not a family member was invited! They eloped! They were so proud to have made it happen and against the odds and with the help of a few key people, they made one incredible wedding happen.
They booked at the Magnolia Plantation, the last American large-scale Romantic-style garden! It was a classy and sophisticated affair. Constantly surrounded by the beautiful natural setting and a view of the Ashley River obstructed only by the bride and groom exchanging their vows.
Choosing Charleston South Carolina for a wedding is always the right choice and Angela and Kyle came all the way from Pennsylvania to have the wedding her grandparents would have envisioned. I say her grandparents because the date of July 9th 2018 is the exact date sixty-nine years ago that her grandparents eloped as well! Definitely keeping the tradition alive!
The wedding was attended by the couple, the officiant and the wedding planner, Reynolds Treasures. Having so few people made the wedding so much closer and more focused on the couple and their love and it was such a pleasure to photograph it for them!

Donna and Hunter went all out for the beachfront wedding they truly deserved on the beautiful, Fripp Island. Gorgeous weather, as always. was bountiful in the pleasantly temperate October air.
The island is known for it’s luxurious resort and focus on natural conservation! In some of the images below, you’ll see just how “close” to nature you can get on Fripp Island; namely the deer which aren’t afraid to ask for a bite to eat!
Miles of beach on each side of the ceremony let the guests drift away to a tropical paradise and feel the ocean air as they witness the union of Donna and Hunter. The ocean itself allowed some breathtaking portraits to come out and capture the beauty and serenity of this incredible wedding.
I so enjoyed this wedding from beginning to end. It was like being on vacation at work!
Lowell and Brigman picked the perfect date for their wedding late last September. The weather was beautiful! It was at the ideal point in the transition between the summer warmth and the crisp, coolness of autumn.
They chose the Charleston Yacht Club for their reception, which is located alongside the Ashley River. This venue had a picturesque setting for every occasion! We were able to capture some amazing moments with riverfront views, a gorgeous sunset, and stunning architecture.
This couple’s elegant ceremony was held in The Summerall Chapel at The Citadel. The Citadel’s classic arches, beautiful courtyard and impressive entrance made this wedding feel like a royal affair! The groom was actually a cadet at the Citadel!
I am so honored to have been a part of the joy, laughter, and love on this special day.

Alisha & Courtney were one classy act. That much was clear to see from the beginning – or at least, from their engagement session at the Charleston Gaillard Center last March. They strayed off the traditional path, and decided that their engagement session would be Gatsby– themed.
Naturally, the couple enjoyed their experience so much, they decided their wedding would be Gatsby-themed as well!
The Lockwood Marriott was the perfect venue for the occasion. This beautiful wedding had the look and feel of the Harlem Renaissance, revisited. From the decor – with black and gold themes, elegant curtains, and plumed feathers – to the costumes and lively music, this wedding felt like the Roaring Twenties! It’s obvious in every picture that this night was a celebration to remember. What a fantastic New Year’s Eve!

Brittany and Josh wanted their Charleston wedding to be intimate and casual, with breezy shirts and toes in the sand! After Josh proposed, they knew the Isle of Palms would be the perfect place to celebrate their love of nautical history, family, and each other.
Isle of Palms beach is both beautiful and breathtaking, and the pastel pinks in the ceremony’s color palette added the perfect soft touch to the scenery.

It’s truly difficult to beat the beautiful hues that come with a fall wedding! For this wedding from last October, Veronica and Melvin chose a color palette of purple and orange, which was the perfect color combination for the setting. I loved the venue, which overlooked the magnificent Arthur Ravenel Bridge. The Cooper River Room definitely added the “city” element to the wedding that was a must for this Atlanta couple!

Ashley and Brian wanted their Charleston wedding to be intimate and casual. Breach Inlet, a place of deceptive beauty and fascinating history was the perfect place to celebrate their love of nautical history, family, and each other.
They chose a neutral color palette so that they didn’t take away from the natural beauty around them. The rustic wood and lanterns played wonderfully into their nautical theme!

Leanna and Josh had an outdoor wedding on the grounds of White Pointe Garden, a beautiful park in Charleston, SC. The couple chose varied shades of bright pink, orange and purple for the color palette, which looked even more vibrant surrounded by the lush scenery. White Pointe Garden is known for its rich history, so it was an obvious choice for the couple to have the reception at 5 Church, an old church that has been converted into a restaurant. The couple celebrated their love at the reception, dancing on the patio with rich brick walls adding the perfect amount of historic charm to the backdrop.

For Melissa and Brock, deciding to have their wedding at Folly Beach was a no-brainer. Brock is currently living his dream as an engineer on a merchant marine vessel and Melissa fell in love with the city of Charleston after visiting one summer. The couple decided to go with a nautical theme on their big day to give a nod to Brock’s career and their love of the water and Charleston. Their ceremony took place right on the beach and the Tides, located on Folly Beach, SC made for the perfect backdrop to continue their love story. Melissa wore a simple lace dress and accented her color palette with blush and navy. The nautical theme continued with their beach inspired wedding cake and lantern centerpieces.

Why the bridal portrait? With landscapes that offer beautiful scenery, and studios that offer climate & lighting control, does it make sense to take advantage of an opportunity to do a dress & make-up ‘rehearsal’ prior to your big day? We think so.
The reasons are many for some, not so much for others. Here are a few reasons why we think bridal portraits are important, and why you should consider them.
- No rush, no fuss. The day of is typically fast-paced and hectic, often stressful. Relax knowing that your portraits have been completed beforehand, so no need to rush yourself preparing for the portrait the day of. Save that time for some quiet reflection, or perhaps some fun with your bridesmaids.
- Knowing exactly what you will look like in your dress and how it photographs. Seeing yourself in images before your big day, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be looking your best.
3. This is the perfect opportunity to connect with your photographer. Handing over the lighting, location, and other details to your photographer will make for fantastic imagery. Also understanding the workflow and personality of your photographer will help you remain at ease during your big day.
4. Time & Opportunity to get creative! What is your fantasy? How do you envision yourself as a bride? Explore a site or location that you’ve always pictured yourself in and create more than a portrait- Create a stunning, iconic image that features you being as beautiful and stunning as you care to imagine.
5. Gifts! Personal notes and an image of you make perfect gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen.
