Spartanburg, SC Photographer | Kendra Martin Photography | Family Photos!!

I seriously can’t believe this little one just turned one!!!  I also can’t believe it’s been three years since Michelle contacted me wanting me to photograph their wedding day!!!  2 years ago Michelle & JJ started their life together as a married couple and then a year later welcomed this sweet little girl into their lives and she seriously is the sweetest!!  Michelle is a total planner (WHICH I LOVE!!!!!!! :) :)) so back in February I wasn’t surprised to get an email from her wanting to go ahead and get their family/C’s 1 year session on the calendar!!  The session was to take place just a little one month from C’s 1st birthday so the photos could be used for her invitations and the party… so our late June date was set and for months I was so excited because I have LOVED getting to know JJ, Michelle & Miss C and it’s always so much fun to spend time with them!!!  Fast forward to April (weeks before we were telling everyone we were moving) I had to contact Michelle and tell her our news… her response “NOOOOOOOO!!! Congrats, to Gary but booooo to it being SC” (Michelle you made me smile b/c that’s how I felt!!) and hope that they would be okay with moving their session up because I would have just made it to South Carolina just days prior to their already scheduled session and there was just no way I could make it back to Texas that weekend… Y’all.. I have to say that is not something I EVER want to do.  When you all book a session, wedding, or whatever with me that’s your date, time, it’s set, it goes on my calendar in pen :) and I really get excited about each and everything I book!! So to even have to think about moving a session just makes me sick (b/c I am a planner and a pretty don’t change plans unless the bottom is falling out)….. Thankfully Michelle is one of the sweetest, sincere, caring, and laid back women I know and was like ok… let’s look at the calendar!!  I was sooo worried and she was amazing about having to move the session up a few weeks!! Thank you for that Michelle!!!  So on a hot June, Sunday evening the 4 of us met up at a pack in Richmond to take their family photos mixed with Miss C’s 1 year photos and it was so much fun & I sooo hate we had to move b/c I think Miss C & Kenzie could have been friends!!!!  Miss C reminded me soo much of Kenzie just a year ago so it was a lot of fun to spend the evening with her!!  Miss C has the cutest expressions and is just such a happy & sweet little girl/baby!!!!!!!  Miss C did amazing for the hour and because of that we were able to get lots of images & in two different outfits so yes…  I’m doing two different posts!!  This first set of photos includes the family photos and the post later in the week will be 99% just Miss C!! Hope y’all enjoy!!!

Greenville, SC Wedding Photographer | Kendra Martin Photography | Christina & Danny… part II

Like I said Monday, there were way too many images for me to narrow down so here’s part II of Christina & Danny’s wedding day photos.  If you haven’t seen part one you should totally go check them out!!!  These two were so much fun to photograph & The Orchard at Caney Creek was an amazing venue!!.  After the ceremony the three of us wandered off for a little bit to get a good number of images of just the two of them.  I always love when I have more than 10-15 minutes with just the bride & groom… the images of the bride & groom (any bride & groom) are some of my favorites to photograph at every wedding & I think they are some of the most important images taken on a wedding day.  These are the first images of the two of them as a married couple, the first images that are of them starting their own family, and the day is their day so what better way to remember it than with lots of photos of just the two of them in love, having fun, and excited because it’s THEIR WEDDING DAY!!! Okay sorry for my rant but I seriously love photos of brides & grooms and really do think it’s very important to schedule in a good chunk of time to devote to just getting those photographs.  Christina & Danny definitely have a good number of photos of the two of them to remember their wedding day!! Y’all these two are seriously so amazing… they have sooooo much fun together… they make amazing serious faces… but have the BEST smiles EVER!!!  If I was given the whole afternoon/evening to photograph just the two of them I totally would :)!!!

After taking photos of just the two of them we headed to the reception to eat amazing BBQ & celebrate the two of them!!  I had so much fun watching their friends & family & the two of them celebrate and have fun!!!  Christina & Danny, you two made me feel sooo welcomed and “at home” with not only you two, but with your families and friends!!  From the very beginning y’all welcomed me with open arms and made me a friend & I am soo soo thankful that our paths have crossed!!!  I know I told y’all I wish we lived closer and I’m repeating it again today because I do wish we all lived right down the street!!!! Y’all are so much fun, so loving, so caring, and two of the sweetest people I think I’ve ever met!!!  Thank y’all so much for wanting me to document your wedding day!! It was an absolute pleasure & I loved every second of it (well minus the mosquitoes ;))!!!

Hope you all enjoy part II of Christina & Danny’s wedding photos as much as I do!!!

Greenville, SC Wedding Photographer | Danny & Christina

I remember when I received the wedding inquiry from Christina and thinking to myself that I don’t even know this young lady but I think I would really like her!!  Sure enough I do really like her!!!!!!  :) :)  After a few emails back and forth it was official I would be photographing her & Danny’s wedding day at The Orchard at Caney Creek, in Wharton, TX.  This would in a lot of ways be a destination wedding because both Christina & Danny’s immediate families reside closer to Dallas and not in the Houston area… BUT both of their families have very close ties to Wharton/still live there so it was the perfect location for them to say “I DO”.  When they were still working out all the details for their wedding day and they knew they would be making a trip to the Houston area to work on EVERYTHING wedding related Christina asked if I’d be willing to meet them as they cake tested.  Well my sweet tooth & I completely jumped at the chance  to not only meet this sweet couple & get to know them…  but to also indulge in cake!!!  It was so much fun getting to sit across from the two of them and watch them interact & talk about their wedding day & their future & just their story!!!  Let me just say…. they have the sweetest love story & seriously are so perfect for one another and it was such a joy to be part of their wedding day!!

Christina & Danny tied the knot on June 7, 2014 at The Orchard at Caney Creek.  Y’all… it was such an amazing day!! It was a tad warm but it was beautiful!!  I kept thinking to myself the whole time I was there just how awesome this venue was and how perfect it was for the two of them!!  Loved, loved, loved everything about their wedding day!!!  I’m going to go ahead and warn you… this is one of two big blog posts because I just couldn’t narrow down the images from their day!!!  Hope you enjoy and be sure to check back at the end of the week when I post more of their wedding day images!!! :) :) :)

1 YEAR OLD | Spartanburg, SC Photographer

It is always a lot of fun to have a one year old in front of my camera.  There’s just something about turning one that’s so exciting.  Before I became a mom I probably wasn’t as excited about that age but now I LOVE it!!  I love getting to hear about the child’s habits, favorite books, personality and everything else that comes along with being one (and to hear the differences between girls and boys… I am so used to everything girl that it’s a lot of fun to hear all about the boys out there!!)!! I love seeing the interaction that parents have with this little one year old that still wants to be loved on and held and snuggled.  I love knowing that they may still have lots of “firsts” ahead of them.  One year is so much fun!!!!   Ohh how I love photographing a one year old!!!  Sometimes they are walkers, sometimes they aren’t… sometimes they are in the best of moods, and sometimes they aren’t… sometimes they are shy… and sometimes they want to be my best friend!!  On this particular warm, June evening little miss “P”…  who was just a tad over 1 year old had just recently become a walker and was in the best of moods!!!  I LOVED LOVED LOVED photographing this little girl and capturing all her cute little faces :)!!!!  I think she wanted to be my BFF by the end of it :)!!!  She was a tad shy but get her parents dancing and being goofy behind me and she was all smiles and giggles!!!  Miss P was a total joy to be around and photograph!!  I had a lot of fun with her and her parents and I am so glad I was able to document this time in their lives.

Sandra & Jarrod | Greenville, SC Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg, SC Wedding Photographer

I finished out the month of May photographing Sandra & Jarrod’s engagement photos.  If I’m being honest… I thought we were going to get rained out, but Sandra & Jarrod were totally “we’re still on if it rains” so we were shooting their engagement session rain or shine (I just prayed for shine for my equipments sake!!!!)  We did get some mist/light rain and we ended up just shooting through it because Sandra loves the rain!!! :) :) Boy am I in photo heaven when a client says “let’s keep shooting no matter what” and we get to play in the amazing light that came after the rain AND try out new locations in a park that I’ve shot sessions in for over a year… These two really were up for whatever & I LOVED IT!!!!  Sandra & Jarrod were so much fun to be around and they compliment each other sooo well and spending a Saturday evening with them made me SOOOOOO excited about their December wedding!!!!!  Sandra & Jarrod, you two have made me feel so welcomed and so loved and have been so awesome!! I can not wait to photograph y’alls wedding in a few short months :)!!!!
