Every year it amazes me how much I thrive from photographing weddings for couples who are madly in love. Especially since it was never in my plan to be a wedding photographer! But as tiring as wedding days are, they give me energy and I squeal with excitement and shed tears of joy as my couples promise their lives to each other.
I say it a lot, but a “thank you” will never be enough for me to properly thank each of these couples who trust me with capturing the memories of their first day as husband and wife.
Enjoy some of my favorites from each of my 2016 weddings!
Now, I’m not wishing rain on anyone’s wedding day, but how romantic are these images?!?
Natalia and Luis didn’t let the rain bother them at all!
I always love a good Clemson wedding… especially when it’s for two amazing people like Brandon and Colleen!
Chris and Molly… y’all were just amazing :-)
The LIGHT after Mary-Catherine and Michael’s wedding was to die for! And it somehow enhanced their love in their photos!
A Charleston wedding is always wonderful… but this one has become an exception as I’ve gotten to see Amy and Andrew more over this year and will get to photograph their baby boy’s birth in the coming month or so!
And I’m still dying over these flowers…
I don’t photograph elopement weddings enough… loved this afternoon with Sarah and Stuart!
I don’t book two weddings in one day, even if they are hours and hours apart. Unless it’s for the same couple :-)
Charlotte and John’s Vietnamese ceremony was in the morning and their American ceremony was in the afternoon. Both were beautiful and I was so thankful to be a part of them both!
Cami and Topher’s families are what made their wedding day happen. And having the chance to photograph the two of them all day honestly was a dream! Photography was a really big deal to them so we made the most of every moment and it was well worth it!
I loved Morgan from the first time Ben and I met her… but when this car pulled up before their ceremony?? Well, she and Matt must have known the way to my heart because I LOVED photographing them with it!
Turner was a friend of a friend that I’d “known” for a long time. So being a part of hers and Ben’s wedding day just made the day extra special (and emotional! Sheesh!). I’d also found out the week before that I was pregnant so that may have had a little bit to do with it too ;-)
Even with some rain putting a stop to some of the timeline, Jessica and Jay took their entire wedding day in stride. Hiccups and all. I’m honestly not sure how it happens, but the Lord brings such amazing couples my way and I’m so thankful!
I also have some of the most beautiful brides on the planet!
These two. Holy moly, they were so kind and encouraging to both Ben and I this year. Sincere couples like Mary Kathryn and Jamey make my heart grow by leaps and bounds!
I honestly can’t get enough of this photo. I just love everything about it!
And then there’s this one that wrapped up my year. Nick was in middle school when his family moved to South Carolina and I first met them. And just before his bride walked out for their first look, I gave him a hug and LOST.IT. All the tears were flowing! And I’d like to blame it all on the baby, but that wouldn’t be the full truth :-) Both of these families are precious and I could not have asked for a more wonderful, genuine, happy, and God-honoring couple to end my 2016 wedding season with. It was a perfect day!
