Steve & Tricia – Married | The Duncan Estate – Spartanburg, SC | South Carolina Wedding Photographer

I met Steve and Tricia at a Starbucks for a quick meeting before their date night.  I’m pretty sure they were going to watch Wonder Woman and wanted to meet up with me for their wedding in September.  They are such a laid back and fun couple and it was so easy talking to them.  Steve was telling me how he proposed to Tricia and just listening to the way he talked about her just warmed my heart.  Like…this woman was the love of his life and he was so ecstatic to FINALLY be marrying this woman.

Steve & Tricia were married on September 16th, 2017 at The Duncan Estate in Spartanburg, SC.  Having an outdoor wedding is always so iffy because you never know about the weather, but it was SUCH a beautiful day.  Tricia started her day with getting her hair and makeup done before getting to Duncan Estate and shared mimosas with her daughter and Steve’s daughter.  MAYYYYBE a little more champagne than orange juice, but ehhh, who cares, right? 😉  I spoke to Steve downstairs while he was getting dressed and all he could ask was, “How does she look?  She looks better than me, doesn’t she?”.  He was just looking out and watching the people show up and sit down waiting for the wedding to start.  He was SO excited and ready to marry Tricia.  Tricia was feeling just the same.  She got her dress on and watched their guests show up from upstairs.

Watching Steve and Tricia marry one another, like any couple, made my heart smile.  His eyes just lit up the moment he saw her coming down the aisle and that light never left for the rest of the evening.  These photos don’t tell the whole story of Steve & Tricia, but we know that I can’t post them all, lol.  Here are my favorites and the best way I can show you their big day 🙂

Jeremy & Marett – Surprise Proposal | Wofford College Campus – Spartanburg, SC | South Carolina Wedding Photographer

This was a first.  My first surprise proposal and I was so giddy to be doing it for Jeremy & Marett.  He called me one day in December saying that he was going to propose to Marett and wanted to do it at Wofford College as it was where they met, plus the campus is beautiful anyway.  He told me that he wanted to do a walk around on the campus, to show her some new things that were going on (Correct me if I’m wrong, but pretty sure Jeremy’s dad works at Wofford).  Then Jeremy had an idea that I approach them as if I’m just scouting the area for an engagement session that I’d have the next day, and ask them to be stand in subjects to test the light.

The way that it worked out was hilarious and perfect.

When they got to our meeting point, I stopped and introduced myself and asked them if they would mind standing in for me.  And immediately, Marett started laughing.  They agreed we started shooting.  I asked them if they would mind walking back up the path they came and just talk and walk back towards me and we would go from there.  I think the photos can tell the story after that 😉

What I didn’t know was that Marett had been asking Jeremy about when he was going to propose to her.  Jeremy told me that she basically had her ring picked out, lol.  Her best friend actually helped pick out the ring, and it was perfect.

Without typing out a book (lol), here are some of my favorites from Jeremy & Marett’s surprise proposal session 🙂

Thank you to Jeremy for allowing me to document this amazing part of his and Marett’s life!  It was an amazing experience and I had a great time planning this surprise for Marett.  She was definitely surprised, haha.

I wish you both the absolute best in your lives together!
