Greenville Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | 10 things… MARCH!!!

I can not believe March is almost over!!!!  It has been a crazy fast month and I nearly forgot about posting a 10 things about Kendra post!!!  So here I am with a few more days left in the month and I’m excited to share 10 more things about myself!!!

1.  I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington!!!!  Can I just say I LOVED being a seahawk!!!!

2.  Yes, I know I was a multi-sport athlete in high school and ran track in college but I HATE WORKING OUT… like HATE, HATE it, I would rather go to the dentist and have a tooth pulled than work out!!!!!!  Gary will be rolling his eyes at me for telling the world that, but it’s true, I really do hate it!!!

3.  I very much dislike having my photo taken.  Kind of ironic since I LOVE taking other peoples photos!!! When I do hop in front of the camera (which we do at least 2 times a year because I want to remind myself how my clients feel when they are in front of my camera… and then I love the memories we create so at the end of the day I’m glad I did it)… so back to what I was saying, when I do hop in front of the camera I make silly faces!!!!!! (SEE BELOW)!!!!

KG3

This photo was taken by a resort photographer whom I’d love to give credit to, but he never gave us his information!!!

4.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the coast (beach and intercoastal)!!!!!  If we ever become rich you can better believe I will be living probably on the intercoastal waterway (preferably somewhere near Wilmington, NC)!!!  I would love to wake up and go have my morning coffee and quiet time out on our dock ;)!!!  Dreams!!!!

5.  I have a younger sister!!!  AND SHE’S ABOUT TO MAKE ME AN AUNT!!!!! AHHHHH SOOOO EXCITED TO MEET MY NEPHEW!!!!! (yes you read that correctly, she’s having a BOY!!!)

6.  I am a preacher’s kid (I AM A GOOD ONE)… I have to say “am” because even though I am totally out of the house and have been for quite some time it’s just part of me and my dad is still a minister!!! And shameless plug here… but if you’re in the Richmond, TX/Katy,TX area and looking for a church you should TOTALLY check out The River!!!!  It’s where we went when we lived there in Texas!!! Miss our church family!!!

7.  You’re probably thinking to yourself… why on earth did Kendra include flowers in her 10 things post… well being a wedding photographer has had me around some beautiful flowers… and because of that it is now my dream to be a florist (and by dream I mean I will keep pinning beautiful floral arrangements on pinterest and taking pretty photos of them… it’s a not ever really going to happen dream :) )!!! I’m sure my friend Jody is laughing out loud at me right now!!!!! :) :)

8.  I LOVE to read!!!!! Like before Kenzie was born would read 3-5 books in a month… now if I get one read in an entire 3 months I’m lucky!!!  Maybe I’ll do a post on some of my favorite books one of these days!!! :) :)  SOO thankful that Kenzie loves to “read” too!!!! I may not do a lot of reading for myself but I sure do read to her A LOT!!!!!

9.  You can look at my desk in my office and think I may not be organized… but boy am I organized when it comes to my calendar/planner!!! I think my favorite thing about the start of a school year (like going all the way back to middle school) was getting to get a new planner/calendar!!! Y’all I still have the ones from way back in the day to today!!!! I have always LOVED keep track of when things are, what is due, events, what I wore, etc. etc… Ohhh do I love to be organized in a planner!!!!!!!  So now instead of the start of the school year it’s the new calendar I get for the new year!!!!!

MaternityPhotosByPhotographyByJanine1One of my dearest friends in the world just happens to be a photographer… Janine took our maternity photos a little over a month before Kenzie arrived & we ohh so love them and still cherish them!! And yes, we totally took photos in a parking garage!!! It’s still one of my favorite places to take photos of others!!!! I’m sitting here thinking about it and realizing that we took our first “family” photos (granted Kenzie was inside the belly) in this parking garage, and then took our last family photos when living in Texas in the very same parking garage… makes me miss it a whole lot!!!!  But so thankful for Janine & the images she has taken of our family!!!

10.  I have TONS of photos!! I don’t just mean like a few here and there… I mean there are photos hanging EVERYWHERE in my house, I have thousands and thousands and thousands sitting on external hard drives  & CD’s but then I have thousands of printed images from like elementary school till like my senior year of college when all I ever shot was film (because that’s all we had was film)!!  I have boxes of negatives that I’ve kept from all those years of shoot with a film camera… I’ve always wondered why I was never able to save my allowance growing up… and I know why.. I was always buying film and taking photos and then having them developed!!!!! I was totally that girl that one year taped photos all over my walls… like ALL over my walls… I seriously love photos and always have!!!!!!!!

Alright, well there are my 10 things about Kendra for March!!!!  :)

Greenville Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer | Ellery Farms Bride

These images make me soo incredibly happy!!!!!!  They really make me super excited to photograph weddings in both Greenville & Spartanburg… along with all other areas in South Carolina & North Carolina!!!!!!  So excited that wedding season has arrived!!!

It’s so funny because as I sit here and write this post and get it ready I keep thinking about how much this shoot feels like spring… but then I keep reminding myself that IT WAS A FREEZING COLD DAY… like… 4 layers, toboggan (aka wool hat, beanie, whatever you want to call it in your neck of the woods), gloves, coat, etc…  all of that to say… Alisa, you were such a trooper to be out in the FREEZING cold for a LONG LONG time, and I am soo appreciative because we walked away with some amazing images!!!!  I started with Alisa & Brielee in the lounge area and then did all sorts of photos on the steps, back in the field behind the house, on an amazing vintage bike, and then ended photos with Alisa & Brielee on one of the many adorable swings that surround Ellery Farms.  Gosh I can’t begin to tell you how much fun it was photographing Alisa (and Brielee for the few she popped in :) ).  Alisa was all sorts of sweet and made my  job easy!!! Making it even easier was Traci doing her thing (Traci, you amaze me with the number of balls you had in the air that afternoon & all your ideas), Melanie creating the most fabulous floral arrangements, and Kellie styling everything, doing her thing with all things paper related and just being such a cheerleader during the whole shoot!!!  Ohh these ladies were a blast to work with all afternoon, especially during this set of photos!!! I LOVED LOVED LOVED having all of the beside me!!!!

Greenville Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer | Ellery Farms

Ohh Ellery Farms you have this southern girls heart!!!! It was a stinking cold day for a photo shoot but boy did I SOOO enjoy photographing this venue and all that it had to offer on this day!!!!  I love that Ellery Farms is located in between Greenville & Spartanburg and that it sits on lots of land!!!!!  I told y’all on Monday that I took a lot of photos, too many to narrow down to one blog post so here are some of my favorite images from the beautiful creations that Traci & Melanie from Ellery Farms and Kellie from Jubilee Weddings & Events created for this day.  Y’all these ladies are so stinking talented and I know I said it Monday but I can’t say it enough, it was an absolute pleasure to work alongside of them and with them and to be part this amazing shoot!!!!!!!

As you saw Monday I spent a lot of time upstairs in the three beautiful rooms taking photos.  There is so much natural light that flows through the house, and that right there is a photographer’s dream!!  Once I finished taking photos of Alisa upstairs we headed outdoors.  I love how Traci’s vision with this wedding venue is to take what people so often have inside… outside for weddings… and in a lot of ways it’s a blank canvas that you can totally make your own!!  Ellery Farms can do so many different kinds of lounges for guests to enjoy and food & beverage setups (between a lemonade/drink stand, dessert table, yard games, and everything else that’s in Traci’s back pocket…) a bride & groom can do all kinds of amazing things on their wedding day and I love that.  I know as a photographer I LOVE photographing details like the ones Ellery Farms & Jubilee Weddings & Events created!!  Y’all I was all sorts of giddy photographing everything!!!!  :) :)

Yep, I love this house!!!  I was telling Gary I could live in this bad boy!!!!!!!

Greenville Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | Q&A with Kendra

Hi!!! I hope you’re having a fantastic day!!!  I had written this question (it’s not really a question but more of a thought that can also be a question/you get the point) down to answer later in the year, but then we had our own family photos taken last week and I realized that I needed to talk about this sooner than later, especially with spring right around the corner and family & child sessions popping up!!  So here we go… today’s “question” or really topic is:  Why are my family and child photos less posed & more journalistic when we do a session with you? 

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer

Kendra Martin Photography | Spartanburg, SC Photographer

I mentioned in on a Q&A with Kendra a few weeks back that combine traditional portraiture with photojournalism for my sessions.  (I know that I am repeating myself from that blog post, but if you missed it I want to be sure I say it because I don’t want to say it a lot of different ways and end up confusing anyone:) )… During my sessions I am totally going to give you some direction, but when you hire me, you are hiring me to photograph your memories (and in my opinion that’s lots of fun & love) that are happening right then and there.  I love capturing a family interacting with one another, kids just being kids… I am all about capturing the essence behind whomever it is I am photographing in that moment of time!! No matter the age of the family or the kids, you will all only be who you are in that moment right now and I think it’s important to capture it all (the good and the “bad”).  I love natural, real images, & I truly want to capture you and your family or your kids being “y’all”… whether that be smiles, laughs, cries, no smiles, not everyone looking at the camera, etc…  I really am just a huge fan of capturing someone as they are in that exact moment of time (I know I just repeated myself, but I feel it was worth repeating :) ).

Houston, TX Newborn Photographer - Kendra Martin Photography

With that being said I’m a mom, so I know you moms out there want “the perfect photo”… I will always do my absolute best to get everyone looking and smiling at me (even to the point of looking like a fool), but at the end of the day I’m going to capture you being you (smiles or no smiles… looking or not looking) and from my own experience (my little girl decided from 3 months old and on (which is now 2.5 years old) that if it’s family photo time she will not smile :) ) those are still “the perfect photos”!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Photographer - BF - 20

I actually just got done looking through my family photos from our session last week.  Originally our session was supposed to be on Saturday, due to basically a 100% chance of rain we switched it to Friday (and this wasn’t here in town, we were making the trip 4.5 hours away on FRIDAY so that right there just scared me but there really weren’t any other options).  Kenzie didn’t nap Friday (she’s a napper so I knew she was going to be not her happy self), we were definitely dressed for warmer weather and when we hopped out of the car it was FREEZING, add the ocean wind… and ohh geeze I had no idea what was going to unfold in that next hour, I just prayed that our photographer could pull a handful of images that captured our family…. and you know what… SHE DID, and I love them.  I will say there aren’t a lot of “perfect photos” (as in we are all looking and smiling and picture perfect) but that day didn’t lend to “perfect photos”… but y’all what she captured was better than perfect photos because they were us, the three of us just being our normal selves… playing and loving on Kenzie and Kenzie exploring the beach and the sand and shivering and red nosed and I am so excited to plaster them all over our walls, I LOVE these images!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Spartanburg Photographer

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer

I purposely get our family in front of someone’s camera 1-2 times a year to experience what you all experience when you step in front of my camera.  I also get us in front of the camera a few times a year because I want our lives documented, I want Kenzie to have something to look back on however many years from now to trigger memories, and I think I’d rather her see the “realness” of life than us just standing “picture perfect” (which also means the images CAN NOT STAY ON A DISK… we’ll touch on that later)… Soooo yes, your session may seem all kinds of crazy and chaotic and it may not be a “perfect photo” day and you may be saying to yourself “ohh my goodness I have no idea what Kendra’s going to get from this”….  Please know that as your photographer I know those feelings ohh soo well and I want y’all to know that yeah it may be crazy and I may be running after your 3 year old to get a picture but I am LOVING capturing the memories that are unfolding right in front of me and I can’t wait to get them into your hands so you can cherish your family and your little’s as they were in that instant of time.

Kendra Martin Photography | Spartanburg, SC Photographer | Greenville, SC Photographer

Kendra Martin Photography | Spartanburg, SC Photographer

So the next time you step in front of my camera know that I’m going to do my best to get a few posed shots but I am going to spend more time photographing the love that’s going on between your family or the child like wonder that you little one is experiencing!!!  All of the images that I’ve shared in this blog post are photos that I captured because I just stepped back and let the moment happen… These are the images that I LOVE to capture for you!!!!

If you have any questions you’d like to ask please feel free to email them to me at kendramartinphotography@gmail.com or just fill out the contact form and send them over that way!!!  See y’all next week for another Q&A with Kendra!!!

Greenville Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer | Ellery Farms | Such an amazing afternoon!!!

Y’all I am soo soo excited about this post and a few that will follow it in the weeks to come (blame that on me being OVERLY snap happy on this particular day!!!).  When we first moved to the Greenville & Spartanburg area I didn’t know what to expect from the wedding industry here in the upstate.  I was nervous about meeting other wedding professionals and getting to know them because hey I am the “new” kid on the block in a way and I wasn’t just starting as a photographer like I was years ago in Houston… I have a business and well I just didn’t know what to expect.  Let me just say the minute I started sending emails to other photographers & others in the wedding industry had me LOVING living in this area (I’ll get to why in just a second)… Then add the fact that Marc & Colleen from Wedding Festivals were so helpful with all my crazy wedding show questions…. and then I actually visited a show in September to see what it was all about and seriously EVERY single person I chatted with (photographer, venue, catering, florist, etc…) were so friendly and welcoming and so yep I have loved being in this area and around the wedding industry here because from the beginning I have seriously been welcomed with open arms and I can’t tell you how incredibly thankful & appreciative I am for that!! I am soooooo excited to work with all these amazing wedding professionals in the South Carolina Upstate!!!!!!!

The second wedding festival show that I did was here in Spartanburg.  Beside me stood Carolina Traditions (their beautiful dresses had me wanting to renew my vows) and across from me was Ellery Farms (and y’all can I just say that just seeing Ellery Farms photos of their venue had me wanting to renew my vows there at their venue… this southern girl loves a beautiful farm house on lots of wide open fields!!!!).  The day was crazy so I didn’t get to chat a whole lot with either but I did chat with Traci, the owner of Ellery Farms (I caught her and Melanie, whom works for her at Ellery Farms looking at my photos ;) ) so me being me with the little bit of a lull in the crowd went over and started chatting and just in those few minutes Traci & I chatted I knew I couldn’t wait to get to know her & work with her one of these days!!!  All I have to say is that I am so very thankful that later on that day she then came over and asked if I’d want to be part of a shoot at Ellery Farms.  Knowing nothing about the shoot or bride or anything I said YES, because I just knew that it was going to be so much fun working alongside of Traci & Melanie!!!

On a VERY VERY cold February day I headed down to Ellery Farms to photograph Traci’s vision and y’all I took A LOT OF PHOTOS!!!!! I’m not just talking like a few, I’m talking just as many as a wedding day… I seriously could photograph at Ellery Farms ALL DAY LONG… I loved it, and now I am absolutely giddy to shoot their again…. especially shooting a wedding there, it’s going to be gorgeous.  When I showed up these ladies had been working hard all morning and were still working hard to get everything ready!!!!  I wish I had the creativity they have!!!  Traci had an awesome vision and I loved seeing it come to life.  Melanie worked her magic on the flowers (and rocked it in front of the camera at the end of the day), Traci’s mom was busy at work inside the house getting all the goodies ready to go out on the tables, and Kellie was there doing her thing with styling & using her talents with caligraphy (random Kendra tangent… I had never met Kellie in person and she wasn’t supposed to be there the day we had originally planned on doing the shoot due to a wedding she had but because of rain we pushed the date back and Kellie was able to help out… she is super talented.  She is the owner of Jubille Weddings & Events AND Barrel & Bloom (you can rent wedding day props from her) AND she does paper & design work as well…. so that’s a mouthful but good gravy she’s talented so it was a pleasure to meet & work with her)… ALL these ladies are super talented and it was such an honor to photograph their work & work alongside of them!!!!!!!!

After wandering around the house & property I got to work!!!  I started with this beautiful dress.  Which came from Carolina Traditions (y’all were probably wondering where that random tidbit from above was going to fit in :) )…  This is a Stella York dress and I loved it!!  OHH and I LOVE that sooo much of the inside of this house is white and has so much natural light streaming through it!!!!

1 Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer2 Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer3 Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding PhotographerThere were so many awesome nooks & crannies in the house to photograph the details!! I really could photograph here for days and never get bored!!!!!
