I had met Russ before our session together, but briefly. He was a groomsman in Ben & Karina’s wedding and are good friends of this lovely couple 🙂 I was suppose to do their 1st year anniversary photos this coming October, but since they were moving, they offered their session to Wanda & Russ for some maternity photos, to which I was happy to do. And while I don’t do it very often, I like to occasionally photograph a gorgeous baby bump. And this one was definitely a beauty 🙂
I met Wanda & Russ out at a friend’s home out in Traveler’s Rest, SC. I’m always sketchy about meeting people in places I’ve never been, but I was sent photos before hand and saw other photos, so I felt pretty confident. There were so many little gems and nice areas that made their maternity shoot together perfect. I felt like even though we were getting eat up by bugs and it being a tad hot, that it went great and officially took some of my favorite maternity photos to date.
Again, I had such a wonderful time shooting with Wanda & Russ and think their precious baby boy is SO adorable. He just turned one month old a few days ago! These are some of my favorite maternity photos to date and am so happy that Ben & Karina graciously gifted this session to them. ❤
It’s always a pleasure working with my dear friend April. She was coming up to NC to visit with her in laws and said that she wanted to get together for some pictures of her son, Dalton, and her niece and nephew. I brought up Campbell’s Covered Bridge as an option as it was right smack dab in the middle of us, and it was perfect. I don’t think I’ve met a more photogenic little group of children, of course, they are still kids, but we got some great smiles out of them which made for some priceless photos 🙂
Here are just a few of my faves 🙂
At the end, April pulled me aside and went behind the bridge and got a few of just Dalton, but he wasn’t in the mood anymore, so we got these priceless faces, haha. It was, as always, fantastic getting to see April and Dalton, plus meeting her MIL (mother-in-law) and adorable niece and nephew was a blast as well. We gotta get YOUR family some time or another, girl! 😉
Thank you for meeting up with me for some great photos, and even better memories 🙂
Working with this wonderful family was a treat! It was a little hard to get everyone together at the same time for this session, so I was happy that I was available for them 🙂
The Fulmer family session consisted on Great grandparents, grandparents, moms and dads, an aunt, and of course, those sweet grandbabies. I know how important it is to capture these moments together when you have everyone together. They requested to do them at Campbell’s Covered Bridge in Landrum, which is such a perfect spot for fall photos. I’m so happy with how everything turned out 🙂
Here are some of my favorites!
Thank you Fulmer family for allowing me to document your family together! I hope you are able to cherish these photos for a lifetime 🙂
I’ve worked with the Coursons a few times now, this was our third session together. You can view their maternity and newborn/lifestyle sessions HERE & HERE! This time we were getting new family photos of Ian, Erica, and adorable Rivers in the beautiful fall weather before it go too cold. Except that day it was pretty windy and the air was a little chilly. Either way, we worked fast so Rivers wouldn’t get too cold and the little guy was a champ! And seriously the most adorable baby ever. I could just squish his little cheeks!
Here are a few favorites from our session together 🙂
I always love working with Ian, Erica, and Rivers and can’t wait to see them again. 🙂
Meeting Ben & Karina was fun. It decided to rain on us outside of the Starbucks that we met at, haha. We discussed many details of their big day (venue, style, what they were looking for, etc.) and spoke of how they met. I think they told me that they met a music festival. Karina, don’t kill me if I’m wrong, lol. It HAS been a year since we talked about it, haha. Just working with them on their wedding day was enough to tell me that they are more than perfect for each other. I never got the chance to work with them prior to the big day, and that’s totally okay. We got along so well and were able to communicate better than most couples that I’ve worked with.
The wedding day came and I somehow managed to show up matching the bridesmaids dresses without even realizing it, haha! Made me blend right in 😉 I arrived to the girls getting their hair and makeup done…Karina was getting her hair started (makeup was already done by the amazing Alores Norris of House of Flawless. Ladies were gathering together in a room in Ben & Karina’s ADORABLE home, dresses were hung in front of the closet just waiting to be worn. Or photographed…..whichever you prefer, haha. Ben was getting ready somewhere else so I was gonna see him when we arrived at The Dutch Barn for the ceremony 🙂
Their day was beautiful and perfect. We ALMOST got rained out! It was trying to rain on us the whole time as their ceremony was outdoors and while we were getting all formal photos. Thankfully we just had a sprinkling of rain and the day went amazing! I’m so thankful I was chosen to photograph their wedding and am happy to be sharing these with you! Here are just a few of my favorites from Ben & Karina’s wedding 🙂
Just another note….their wedding cake, WAS AMAZING. It was so simplistic, one layer was peanut butter cake with peanut butter icing and the other was chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Before I left, Karina was so nice and cut me a slice to take home. Y’ALL! I got home completely exhausted but 100% wanted to devour that cake, lol.
Ben & Karina, thank you so much for including me on the most special of days. It was truly a joy getting to know you both and photographing your wedding. You are such a wonderfully beautiful couple and I wish you the absolute best in your marriage and lives together 🙂
