Carly and AJ could not have been luckier with the gorgeous summer weather they had for their Charleston wedding this past weekend. Carly said that they had paid their dues…for every pre-wedding celebration since their engagement, they were dealt not-so-good weather. The girls got ready at Carly’s parents home on the Isle of Palms and it made for such an easy and relaxed way to spend their morning. The breeze off of the ocean was amazing, and under the porches of their stunning home it felt amazing outside.
After Carly and AJ’s sweet first look, everyone headed to the Isle of Palms Methodist Church for their ceremony, and then headed downtown to the Harbour Club to celebrate for the evening. Mingle created such a beautiful setting, and Triple Dog Dare had the dance floor going! I could have listened to them play all night, they were SO good and made for such a great time for all of Carly and AJ’s guests who came from out of town. It was a beautiful day and one we were so grateful to be a part of. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Ashley and Will’s wedding at Lowndes Grove in Charleston, South Carolina last fall was one for the books. These two planned their long weekend of wedding events all the way from New York City and had so many friends travel to celebrate with them. Ashley, along with her planner Chelsye from Intrigue Design & Events, used beautiful soft shades of pink, ivory, and orange to transform Lowndes Grove into exactly what Ashley hoped for. One of my favorite touches was that Ashley & Will included their bulldog Winston as a groomsman as well, and he even had a bow tie matching the rest of the men. It’s so fun reliving this day through the photos and I seriously cannot get enough of this gorgeous wedding design!

You may remember this post about my grandparents and their 58th anniversary earlier this year. There are no words for how special these two are to me and I’m so glad I was able to snap a few extra special images of them on film when I was visiting home in Maryland back in May. Love love love :)
It’s been a while since I’ve shared any personal photos, so I thought I’d share some of the images from our springtime adventures. These photos are a mix from April all the way to Memorial Day Weekend…from fishing at home, planting our garden for the 3rd year, fishing at a family friend’s pond, and enjoying Edisto Beach on Memorial Day. I love love love making these memories as a little family and these images are truly so special to me. Most are a mix of 35mm film and Holga film, and a few are digital. I love springtime adventures :)
When McCauley emailed me asking about elopement photography, I was so excited to hear she and Brad were planning a quick ceremony at the Battery, with just the two of them, and wanted to spend a few hours touring downtown and taking portraits. A sweet couple all gussied up in wedding attire and game for portraits all over one of my favorite cities? I’m all in :) Despite the outrageous heat and humidity, we had so much fun enjoying the afternoon of their elopement in downtown Charleston. We even made a quick pit stop at Bakehouse for them to enjoy a few quiet minutes alone and some fluids to keep hydrated ha! Thank you both for trusting me with such a special and intimate time in your lives!
