Becca and Russell’s Proposal, Part One

Categories: Engagements.

I am soooo excited to share these images today! Being a part of such a huge event in someone’s life is seriously one of the biggest honors. Russell’s proposal to Becca was perfect and it is probably the most happy tear-inducing thing I’ve ever been a part of. Every once in a while I shed a few tears at a wedding, but this was just so different. The hours leading up to this were so fun and full of so much wonder and anticipation that it makes it so unique. I’m so grateful that Becca’s sister, Roxanne, a good friend and fellow photographer, asked me to photograph this while she did video. Roxanne and Russell worked SO hard to make this special for Becca…it really is setting the standard crazy high for all guys out there!

Since this was such a special event, I’ve broken it up into two different posts. You’ll have to come back Monday to see the rest! And if you want to see Roxanne’s amazing video (you CANNOT miss it!), you can do so here. Prepare to shed a few tears…Roxanne did a phenomenal job filming this and seeing all together in movement is unreal. Can you imagine how amazing it will be to have something like that for Becca and Russell to show their kids one day? Ahh! I love it!

Visit the blog on Monday to see the rest of Becca and Russell’s amazing engagement evening. In the meantime, view Roxanne’s video here.

Wrightsville Beach Wedding: Lara & Robert

Categories: Weddings.

There is so much that could be said about Lara and Robert’s Carolina Yacht Club at Wrightsville Beach, NC wedding. You could not have asked for more perfect weather, a prettier location, a more beautiful bride or handsome and relaxed groom, or a better team to keep the day organized and running smoothly. I can’t imagine the Yacht Club has ever looked better. Lara’s taste is impeccable…from her delicate and feminine lace gown, to her elegant but simple gold Kate Spade flats, to the guys looking sharp as ever in khaki, and that beautiful ceremony and reception decor…it was all amazing. I am so grateful to have played a small part in their day and hope that these images help show how truly joyous and wonderful their wedding day was.

A Boone Hall Charleston Wedding

Categories: Weddings.

This is the second time that I have been lucky enough to assist Paige of Paige Winn Photo at an intimate Boone Hall Plantation wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. Lauren, Zane, and their friends and families traveled from Tennessee for their small, romantic affair and it was beautiful from start to finish. I loved the vintage bus that Lauren arrived to Boone Hall in (and that Lauren and Zane did their first look on), ohhed and ahhed over their simple but romantic take on the Cotton Dock, and enjoyed Zane’s friends come together to make up an awesome band. Watching Zane’s two beautiful kids interact not only with Zane, but with Lauren and her family, melted my heart. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Downtown Savannah Wedding: Carty & Mark

Categories: Weddings.

I could not imagine a better way to start my spring wedding season than in Savannah! Carty and Mark’s wedding in downtown Savannah, Georgia was absolute perfection. Although the forecast threatened Carty’s plans for an outdoor ceremony in the days leading up to the wedding, Saturday came and we had the prettiest, softest light we could have asked for. From the Inn at Ellis Square, the Lafayette Square, to Vic’s on the River…Carty and Mark’s wedding day flowed so effortlessly and I’m so glad I got to be the one there. What I loved most about getting to know Carty and Mark was seeing how clearly they really are each other’s best friends. They fit together like the perfect puzzle pieces :) Enjoy some of my favorites from their gorgeous Savannah wedding!
