Greenville Wedding Photographer | South Carolina Wedding Photographer | Such a beautiful wedding!!

When we moved to SC 6 months ago I was fearful that it would take a little while to get my feet wet with weddings here in the area… but I was soo very wrong.  Pretty soon after we moved here I was going through a facebook group I’m part of looking at other wedding photographers in the area.  I ran across Brittney and shot her a message just saying hello.  Well, she wrote me back and asked if I’d second shoot with her at a wedding she had coming up in October at Gardner Webb University.  I jumped on board and am soo very glad I did.  I loved getting to know Brittney on our ride and then shoot this wedding with her on that absolutely BEAUTIFUL October Saturday.  If this was my wedding I’d go on and on about the bride and groom, but when I second shoot I like to just let the pictures do the talking.  BUT I will say, these two were amazing!!! Their love for one another was so amazing to watch and it was an honor to help photograph their wedding day, Brittney it was such an honor to document this day alongside of you!!!

I was soo soo soo excited when Brittney told me that they were going to be doing a first look.  I ADORE first looks :)!!! And then it’s so much fun spending time capturing just the bride & groom before all the hustle & bustle of the day get under way!!!  :) :)

Spartanburg Newborn Photographer | Greenville Newborn Photographer | Welcome baby W!!!

You may recognize this sweet family from a session I did earlier in the fall… A few weeks ago they welcomed baby #2 into the world and a few days after his birth I headed over to their house to take newborn photos.  Little Mr. W would probably rather have been playing with his trains or watching mickey mouse than having his photos taken but we managed to wrangle him and get quite a few family photos before he headed off to do his thing (and I totally crashed his party and snapped a few images of just him while he was playing :)).  the littlest mr. w was a little angel and was wide awake for the majority of the session which I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I can hear other photographers cringe at the fact that I love a wide awake newborn… but because I do not do posed newborn photos I love getting to see their eyes and see their tiny tiny personalities and the connection they already have with mom and dad… so eyes open is something I secretly hope for with every newborn session… granted I also love a sleeping newborn but I really love seeing those newborn eyes!!!! :) :) :)  The Sunday morning we did this sweet families lifestyle newborn sessions it was pouring down rain outside so it was a tad dark inside the house, but in my opinion it made for extra snuggles and beautiful black & white images!!  Y’all I soo loved photographing this sweet sweet family!!!  Kathryn & Caleb, it was such an honor to photograph your sweet little family of four!!  Thank you for your warm welcome into your home and for wanting me to document this very special time in your lives!!!

Spartanburg Maternity Photographer | Greenville Photographer | A quick beach maternity session!!

Back in November we headed to Hilton Head for a much needed little vacation (it had been since before Kenzie was born that we’d actually done anything so yep definitely much needed!!).  Towards the end of our week down there are good friends Jason & Stephanie flew in to spend a few days with us!!! Ohh how we loved spending time with these two!!  Granted as they flew in the weather dropped by like 20-30 degrees so beach time didn’t really happen for the later part of our vacation but it didn’t really matter because we still had a good time!  On that Saturday afternoon we all got a little dressed up and headed to the beach for a few photos… and when I say few, I mean few because it was COLD & WINDY!!!!  I wanted to make sure I was able to capture a few maternity photos of the two of them just in case my weekend in Texas was a washout, but thankfully we were still able to do a maternity session this past weekend when I was in town to photograph a wedding… so be on the lookout for another post featuring these two!!!

Jason & Stephanie,  We LOVED spending time with you guys in our now “home” state!!  So glad y’all were able to get a little taste of the East Coast… hopefully you got bitten by the East Coast bug and will head out this way again… and next time with that sweet little girl!!  I can not wait to meet here next year!!!  Love you guys!!!

Spartanburg Photographer | soon to be family of 4!!!

So I have to say this session was one for the books!!!  :) :)  A few Friday’s ago Jenn, Ben, and little mr. C made the trip down to Spartanburg to take family/maternity photos!!  You may recognize Jenn from a session that I did with her earlier in the year.  It was a lot of fun to have the whole family in front of my camera this time around!!!  I can’t even begin to tell you how perfect the weather was for the session.. it was amazing and there was still a FEW leaves left on the trees, but the leaves on the ground made for a beautiful backdrop!!!  Little mr. C is just a few days younger than Kenzie so I knew I had all of about 10 minutes :) and he was done… surprisingly he last a lot longer and it was so much fun to capture him having fun and playing!!!  After he hit his limit I took photos of just Jenn (y’all doesn’t she look AMAZING!!!!!  this woman rocks pregnancy!!!), and then a few of her and Ben (I love these two)!!  It is such an honor and privilege to be just an hour away and have the opportunity to spend time with this sweet family and document their lives!!  I am soo excited about their 2nd little Mr. that is due to arrive this month!!!  Jenn & Ben, thank y’all so much for wanting me to document your family, your love, and your memories!!! Next time I see you all it’ll be as a family of four and I’m pretty sure I may be a puddle of tears!!!

Ohh geeze I almost forgot to tell y’all why it was one for the books!!!!  So after we were done taking photos and getting ready to pack up and head back to our house to let the kiddos play and us all catch up… Jenn & I were talking food and Ben was strapping little mr. C into his car seat… LOL, well as I’m strapping Kenzie in her carseat (her and Gary were hanging out where I did the session) Jenn came around and said “umm it may be a little while before we can go… Ben gave “C’ the car keys and he locked himself in the car”… I ABOUT DIED!!!!  Long story short… we called 911 and in just a little bit of time a fire truck and two police officers and a company called “pop a lock” (I think that’s what it was called) arrived on the scene!!  They were able to get the car unlocked and little mr. C was awesome and happy!!!! That is definitely a session I will NEVER forget!!!!! :) :)

Spartanburg Family Photographer | Such a Fun Session!!

When I first moved to Spartanburg I reached out to a fellow Spartanburg family photographer just to say hello.  Turns out this sweet lady and her family had just put their house on the market and would be moving back to Columbia :( :( :(… I think we both feel the same way that we have become friends via technology and I am soo looking forward to the time I get to meet her in person.  I promise this has relevance to this post!!! :) Back when Melissa & I first started chatting she asked if she could send people my way since she wouldn’t be getting back to the area very often. I am just so incredibly honored that she would want to do that… Back in the late summer Joanne contacted me letting me know that Melissa had sent her my way.  Joanne wanted to have family photos taken this fall.  We exchanged a few emails and hadn’t nailed anything down when unbeknownst to the two of us we are sitting across from each other in a Bible study one Thursday morning!!!  I had seen her name tag but thought to myself there is no way that’s the lady that had contacted me, but sure enough it was!!!!!  Over the last few months I have had the privileged of getting to know and become friends with  Joanne and I am soo sooo sooo thankful that God placed her in my life!! Joanne, I have soo enjoyed our walks & talks & getting to be in the same small group with you & just getting to do life with you!!!!!

A few Saturday’s ago I was lucky enough to meet Joanne’s whole family!! Y’all these 5 are amazing & I had soo much fun photographing them!! Andy & the kids were so sweet and it was a blast getting to photograph the kids!!!!  Joanne & Andy, thank y’all so much for wanting me to document your family!! I LOVED my time with you 5 and am soo looking forward to getting to know y’all even more!!!  Here are a few of my favorite images from their session!!!

The image of miss T & her daddy on the right is one that I had sent Joanne while I was editing them and she said “that one may be at her wedding”!!  That made me smile, but if I had a photo of Kenzie & Gary like that I would say the exact same thing!!! Look at that smile she’s giving her daddy!!! LOVE IT!!!
