Freckles and Speckles

On a scouting trip outside of Asheville, we explored Claxton Farms for clients. We explored, checked lighting and locations, ate from the suggested wedding welcome list and took in the mountain air. Along the way, we met two speckled animals that grabbed our attention.

Mother + Daughter

Photographing weddings and portraits is photographing relationships. During the wedding we meet, watch and witness the love, hopes and expectations that pass between families, couples, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons and every other combination you can imagine. As the family grows we have the opportunity to continue the documentation. The bride and groom take on a mother’s and father’s love and the focus shifts.

Location: William Aiken House

In Bloom

We have explored and photographed Charleston in all seasons and weather and have always witnessed beauty. It might not have been the palette of colors we were expecting, but each season has it’s own brand of magic. For those who have their heart set on a particular bloom the Middleton Place's Annual Bloom List is your best bet.

Late Night Eats

Late night nibbles such as sliders, grilled cheese sandwiches, fries and cookies with milk have been a crowd pleaser during receptions  over the years. And food trucks make late night snacks even better. Diggity Doughnuts truck parked it’s wheels outside the Thomas Bennett House to provide sweet flavors of the couples’ choice. They were a hit!

Wedding coordinated by Premier Events.

Hand Clapping

Prior to the portrait, the little miss’ mom shared that she was shy and not to expect smiles. So we counted ourselves extra lucky to have been the recipient of smiles, clapping and giggling from Miss Sloane. When choosing a location, we selected Boone Hall since the couple was married there. Love full circles!


On the horizon

Appreciating the curve of a baby belly during pregnancy is a great keepsake. We went back to the couples wedding venue, Lowndes Grove, and were able to take our time and ‘play’ with the camera..
