Adam & Angela’s wedding was a day I’m so thankful that I was a part of. From the song that Angela’s father sang during the reception to the moment when Adam saw Angela walk down the aisle, no moment was spared with joy and love.
I met Adam & Angela at their engagement session in the lovely downtown Greenville, which was a journey in itself, haha. You can view their photos and that story HERE. We had a wonderful time getting to know one another even if we got rained out a couple of times, lol! Also had a wonderful time getting Angela’s bridal portraits as well at the gorgeous Rock Quarry Garden, you can view those images HERE.
I spent the whole day with Adam & Angela, before they ever started getting ready until they were leaving the church. The day was full of surprises, and this dang southern heat (who knew it was gonna be 80+ degrees in OCTOBER?), but we pulled through and everything went beautifully. We started the day with everyone getting ready, taking their time and enjoying the day. Once we got to that, Angela wanted to have a first look with her dad in the sanctuary. I love all first looks and usually ones with the bride and her father are always a treat. This one was no exception. We continued the day with a beautiful and emotional ceremony that I will never forget. No dry eyes in the house, here!
Once Adam & Angela said their “I do”‘s, I just followed their day as I would any other wedding. Let them enjoy this joyous occasion with their friends, family, and church members all while documenting every moment 🙂 I’m not able to put into words how wonderful this wedding was, so I’ll let some photos from the big day do the talking.
Thank you Adam & Angela for choosing me as your wedding photographer. I am more than honored to have been documenting this beautiful day and the journey leading up to it. You two were absolutely wonderful and I wish you the absolute best in your lives together.
I let Angela take her time on choosing the best spot for her bridals. She wanted something in the Greenville area, but still beautiful for her portraits. She texted me one day saying that she wanted the Rock Quarry Garden. Why I haven’t shot here before is BEYOND me, this is just a cute hidden gem! I literally passed it up on the way there, lol. If you don’t know it’s off on the side of the road by some houses, but it’s technically a Greenville, SC park. Lots of people have small wedding ceremonies there, many people go to have family portraits made, and even bridals. It’s actually quite beautiful.
If you haven’t already seen them, Adam & Angela’s engagement session was a DOOZY, lol. We battled the rain many times and struggled to get their session booked because it literally rained every single time we tried to schedule a day. You can view their engagement post HERE. And since Adam & Angela are FINALLY married, I can post these beauties!
We started scheduling for Angela’s bridals. The day was beautiful, the weather was warm/humid, but we were in the shade so it wasn’t that bad. As with all of my bridals, we were scheduled for two full hours of shooting, but that came to a close after one hour because Angela got too hot and started to feel like she was going to faint. This woman is a TROOPER though. She finished up a few photos at the last bit of that hour and you couldn’t even tell that she was struggling to stand. She’s amazing. 🙂
Here are just a handful of my faves from Angela’s bridal session!
Thank you Angela for allowing me to be the photographer for all of these moments! Can’t wait to post up the wedding blog post here soon 🙂
This was my first time working with Nina. We wanted to badly to do hers and Hershell’s engagement photos, but he’s in the military and wasn’t going to be in the states at the time that we would need him to be. But it’s okay, it made the wedding day so much better and it didn’t take me long to get to know him 🙂 You can view their gorgeous wedding day photos and blog HERE.
Nina and I were on the same page with what she wanted. She originally wanted to shoot at Furman University because it has a lot to offer in terms of areas to shoot at and it’s just a gorgeous campus. But Nina spoke to me about wanting something with a rustic and vintage feel and I found Taylors Mill. Now, I’ve seen photos taken here, but have never inquired about shooting there until I saw that you could request a time frame and that there are big open spaces to shoot in. It was perfect!
I think we shot in June, so OBVIOUSLY we battled the heat and humidity. South Carolina and it’s LOVELY humidity, lol. Even so, Nina and her wonderful mama worked it out for two full hours and I’m so glad that we did. This is probably one of my absolute favorite bridal sessions to date and I’m SO SO SO happy to be sharing these, FINALLY. I’m gonna just stop talking and let y’all just look at these, Nina is such a natural beauty!
Thank you Nina for having me photograph your bridal portraits and your wedding! You are such a true gem and it was a pleasure working with you 🙂
Since we’ve celebrated Bryson & Jessica’s big day, (You can view their wedding blog HERE and their engagements HERE) I can finally share Jessica’s bridal portraits. Granted, I could’ve shared them five months ago, but I digress, haha. We wanted to do Jessica’s bridals at Furman University, but the weather wasn’t kind to us that day and ended up POURING the rain the entire time. I made arrangements to have Taylors Mill ready for us just in case it did rain, so thank goodness for that! Not only was it raining, but it was SO hot and humid. But Jess did amazing! Taylors Mill is a perfect location for bridals and I’m glad that we were able to do hers there 🙂
Jessica’s dress was a classic white dress with a lace topper on the torso and sleeves. It was a perfect length to just twirl around in and enough to say she had a train. It was beautiful! Without further ado, here are my favorites from Jess’s gorgeous bridal portrait session 🙂
I love shooting bridal photos and it was a pleasure getting to shoot Jessica’s! We did end up cutting our time short because, lord have mercy, it was so hot, lol. Even so, we got some amazing photos and I can’t wait to work with you and Bryson again in the near future! 😉
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 🙂
Steve & Tricia’s wedding day was SO much fun, surprises, and love that I’m so happy that they chose me to be their wedding photographer. You guys are so beautiful together and I wish you the absolute best in your marriage and lives together. It was a pleasure getting to know you both!
