Oldfield Plantation Wedding: Bonnie & Jesse

Categories: Weddings.

Another lovely lowcountry wedding at the Oldfield Plantation River Club. I just love working here and was so excited to be able to photograph Bonnie and Jesse’s big day. I know there was SO much excitement leading up to their wedding, and it came together so beautifully. I loved their use of oyster shells throughout their decor and florals…so very them. Another thing that was signature to Bonnie and Jesse? Including their dogs Ollie and Zoe in the festivities. I love that they got some time in with them throughout the day and that the dogs even got to come to the reception for a little :) Enjoy a handful of my favorites from their fun Oldfield wedding!

The Kinner Family

Categories: Portraits.

It’s that time again…the annual Kinner family session! These are five of the coolest people I know and each year I’m flattered that they invite me to be the 6th member of their family for about two hours. There is never a dull moment with this crowd, and their family dynamic is literally the coolest. This year we had fun exploring somewhere we’d never been, so it made it a little extra exciting and fresh. Of course I love what we got…these guys are never afraid to laugh, joke, and love on each other :)

*Unfortunately I do not offer family sessions, but if you are looking for a family photographer, I’m happy to pass on referrals!*

Colorful Southern Wedding: Holly & Adam

Categories: Weddings.

I typically have something I want to share about each wedding to lead into the images. But for this one, I’m kind of speechless. Holly and Adam are one of the most well-suited couples I’ve ever worked with, and honestly I’m pretty sad my time working with them is officially over :( Everything about their beautiful, bright Southern Maryland wedding was special. From Holly’s small bridal party of just her sister and her two best friends, to her getting ready at her parent’s home, to the way Adam looked at Holly as she walked down the aisle, and the great party that followed…it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever been a part of. The pictures speak better than I do, so enjoy a handful of my favorites :)

Jessica & Justin

Categories: Engagements.

This past weekend was a busy one in Maryland. The weekend kicked off with Jessica, Justin, and their sweet pup Macie. Macie is a yellow lab, which obviously just fuels my already raging obsession with the best dog breed ever ;) As for Jessica and Justin, not only are they obsessed with their furkid, but they’re also just really kind, easy people to be around. They spend nearly all of their spare time together outside hunting and fishing so it was amazing that we had such a gorgeous evening and beautiful light for them. Enjoy some of my favorites!

William Aiken House Wedding: Charlotte & Andy

Categories: Weddings.

Charlotte and Andy were a true joy to work with. After getting to know them at their engagement session and hearing that they had been together for nearly ten years (since high school), it really hit home that this was going to be a special wedding day. Obviously it’d been a long time coming for their families, so there was an abundance of joy and excitement the entire day. One of my favorite parts was when Charlotte opened Andy’s gift to her before walking down the aisle. He had saved pictures and cards over the course of ten years and that just spoke volumes about how much Andy cherishes Charlotte and their life together. I think it’s easy to see why; look at Charlotte. She’s not only beautiful, but incredibly kind, and she wears a smile always. Enjoy some of my favorites from their gorgeous downtown Charleston, South Carolina wedding at the William Aiken House.
