Eddie & Heather – Hunter Family | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC

I met up with Eddie & Heather to do a quick fall mini session with them and their dog, Millie at the beautiful Milliken Park in Spartanburg.  It was a gorgeous day!  Heather and I were talking beforehand about it possibly being too hot for Eddie because we ended up shooting a little earlier than what I’m use to, but it was perfect!  I tried keeping them in as much as shade as possible and we made it all work out just fine 🙂

Millie, on the other hand, was/is the most well behaved dog!  As long as you had some pepperoni, that is 😛 No, I’m serious, she was so sweet and had the biggest smile for a dog.  We only had one mishap where she took off mid picture for a pepperoni, but sat right back down, haha.  Eddie & Heather don’t have any children, so this fun pup is their baby 🙂

Here are a few of my favorites from this lovely little family’s session 😉

The Karl Family – Downtown Spartanburg, SC

The day I met this beautiful family, happened to be a hectic one, haha.  I was running all over the place trying to get my kids to doctor’s appointments and was running a few minutes behind.  Being the most awesome people ever, they completely understood and were amazing about it!  I was referred to them by another client of mine, Lee Ghowanlu.  You MIGHHHHT remember her and Sasha’s elopement HERE and their recent family session from 2016 HERE.

Nicole & Rob have three beautiful children; Jack, Olivia, and Sophie.  These kids were great to photograph on their own, like, wayyyyy easy, lol.  And as a whole family….EVEN better 🙂

We photographed the Karl family in the beautiful downtown Spartanburg.  One of my favorite areas of our city, and it was just perfect for their photos!  Below is just some of my favorites 🙂

As much as I love shooting weddings and engagements, it’s really refreshing working with families and kids here and there.  Especially with a family as fun as this one 🙂  I loved all of their photos and hope to work with them again in the future!

The Ghowanlu Family – Fall Mini | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC

I’ve worked with Sasha & Lee in the past.  You may remember them from their beautiful elopement photos I done back in 2015.  You can see those HERE.  But not too long after getting married, Lee announced that she was pregnant with their first child together!  Ethan is Sasha’s son, and Mia is Sasha & Lee’s first 🙂

Lee emailed me in the fall and wanted to take advantage of my Fall Mini sessions to get photos of her perfect little family, which of course, I was TOTALLY excited for.  Working with Sasha & Lee in the past was so much fun and easy, so I was honored that they asked me to take their family portraits.

Here are some of my favorites from their session 🙂

Kevin & Kelly – Engaged | Furman University – Greenville, SC

I met Kevin & Kelly at a Starbucks back in September.  We talked over the main details of their wedding, laughed mostly, and got to know each other a little better.  Kelly was actually referred from one of my long time clients, Jessica (Ya know that super adorable couple I’ve done my styled shoots with?  Yeah, them!  Most recent session with them HERE.), who she use to work with.  Said that loved my work and chose me to be their wedding photographer.  How awesome!

Their engagement session was so much fun and we had MANY laughs, as I’m sure there are many more to be had from the way that we interact with one another, lol.  The day that we were at Furman University, there was either a football or soccer game going on (don’t remember which) and they had been playing Black Eyed Peas, so it could be heard all over the campus.  While I was switching out one of my lenses, I had my back turned for a minute, and in true “me” fashion, I started rapping a part of the song in this deep, burly voice.  Totally professional.  And from behind me, I hear this burst of laughter coming from Kevin & Kelly because apparently I had interrupted a romantic moment they were having.  Whoops!  😛  One of the many perks of working with this ‘lil gal.  I break out into song at any given moment, be prepared folks!

Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session 🙂

Kevin & Kelly are to be married on May 6th, 2017.

Chris & Mackenzie – Married | Duncan Estate – Spartanburg, SC

I met up with Mackenzie a little over a year away from their wedding date.  I was actually VERY pregnant at the time, so what a meeting! Haha.  After our initial consultation, they booked and began the planning process!  We done their engagements in early December at the Wofford College Campus as they are both alums and it’s just a gorgeous campus anyway, so we took advantage of the beautiful views 🙂  You can view their engagement session photos HERE.  We also shot Mackenzie’s bridals in early April during Spring Break last year.  You can view that blog post HERE.

But the big day was here.  At this point, there was no more nervousness, just happy vibes and ready to be married.  Everyone was so chill and ready to watch Chris & Mackenzie be married.  This was probably one of my favorite weddings of 2016 because everyone was so amazing to work with and just how great the entire day went.  Seven hours went so quickly and was spent watching these families and friends celebrate the newly married Visage couple.

I have SO many favorites, but here are a handful from their absolutely beautiful day 🙂
