There aren’t many people out there who can say they were proposed to on a mountain top in… Read more »

Duncan Estate Wedding Photography

Duncan Estate in Spartanburg, SC is one of my favorite venues to shoot at!  All the beautiful green backdrop makes for some amazing photos.  And today especially the trees were AMAZING!  Matsui & Lauren’s colors complemented the green backdrop with all the dark and light blues. And there colors actually came from their two favorite colors, which reminded them of Southern Tide, which just so happened to be where I use to work….can this couple be any more amazing!?!?!?!  Matsui… Read more »

“Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world, she took the midnight train goin’ anywhere. Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit, he took the midnight train goin’ anywhere.” We all know the song by Journey, but Abbigail and Jeff actually lived it! But it wasn’t a train, it was a plane! Back in November 2013, Abbigail was traveling back to her hometown of Windsor, NC after visiting a friend in Greenville and Jeff, who… Read more »

Between wedding shows, direct inquires, and Facebook, we see a lot of requests for wedding photographers.  Some are looking for quality, others are looking for price, and some are looking for both. As a wedding photographer, I try my best to always educate a bride when it comes to choosing her wedding photographer, even if she doesn’t choose me.  Below is a list of some of the things that I tell all brides they should do when considering a photographer… Read more »

Wedding days are always so very special, but a wedding on Mother’s Day? Even more so! Not only are you celebrating the love of two people coming together as one, but you also get to celebrate the mother’s who helped to make them the people that they are. And Justin and Jordan did just that! It was an amazing day, not too hot and beautifully sunny, at the Beach House Resort in Hilton Head Island. We met Jordan in her… Read more »

Bridal portrait days are so much fun when you have such beautiful brides!  I can without a doubt say that I have definitely been blessed with so many beautiful on the inside and out brides.  Anna is definitely one of them! It was a perfect day when Anna traveled up from the small town of Ware Shoals, SC to the beautiful Rock Quarry Garden in Downtown Greenville, SC for her bridal portrait.  Her dress, well I knew that day it… Read more »

Wedding day’s are always filled with traditions and sentimental items.  And Jeremy and Jessica’s wedding day wasn’t lacking!  Jessica wore her mother’s beautiful wedding dress and her mother-in-law’s gorgeous lace wedding veil.  Jessica’s attire definitely set the tone for their beautiful wedding.  From the bridemaid’s beautiful pale pink dresses to the simple decor, this wedding was a classic! It wasn’t love at first sight for these two though.  Jeremy moved down to the Upstate after graduating from University of Kentucky… Read more »

Wedding days are always a little sad for me.  It’s usually the last day that I have with a lot of my couples and brides.  We’ve spent the better part of a year communicating and getting to know one another and by wedding day we’ve become great friends. I don’t even know where to begin with this couple.  They are simply that amazing!  Mary found me last summer through a former bride and immediately contacted me to meet.  When she… Read more »
