Sharon & Tom | Charleston After-Wedding Session | Charleston Wedding Photographer

Yesterday was Veteran's Day, and this post is in honor of all those who have and who continue to serve our country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. It does not go unnoticed. Sharon and Tom met in college, where Tom took a fancy to her pretty quickly. Sharon, on the other hand, was uninterested, thinking Tom was just another frat boy. Soon after giving in to hanging out with him one day, her heart began to melt and soften towards Tom, realizing he was a very humble soul who made her laugh and giggle (which is very important, ladies!). The two began dating and decided to get married just before Tom left for Afghanistan for a year. When he got back, they decided to experience the whole newlywed adventure - they went on their long-awaited honeymoon, and decided to get their wedding portraits taken, which they traveled to Charleston for. What an honor it was to take photos for this beautiful couple! Thank you, Sharon and Tom, for choosing me to capture the beauty of your marriage! And a special thank you to Tom for his service. What a sacrifice this couple has made to be together. That is true love, my friends.

Lauren & Steve {Magnolia Plantation Wedding}

Lauren and Steve got married at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens earlier this month. They were married by the water and held their reception in the beautiful conservatory. Her wedding colors of aqua and green were the perfect compliment to the gorgeous plantation setting. I had such a blast with this wonderful couple and their fantastic friends and family! Congratulations Lauren and Steve!

Lauren Reid {Magnolia Plantation Bridal Portraits}

I've been dying to share these beautiful photos ever since I shot this bridal session last month. Lauren just got married this past weekend and Im so happy that I got to be a part of it. We shot her bridal portrait at the beautiful Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, SC. I just absolutely love EVERY image from this session...She is just absolutely stunning and was SO easy to work with. Congratulations, Lauren! Visit my website for wedding/booking info.

Amanda & Rob {Magnolia Plantation and Gardens Maternity}

Amanda and Rob are expecting their first little baby! I'm just absolutely obsessed with baby bumps right now. This session makes me so excited about being pregnant and experiencing the whole pregnancy journey. Amanda and Rob are the epitome of sweet and southern. Rob is really laid back and Amanda is just stunningly beautiful. I had so much fun capturing this beautiful time in their life. Amanda is just absolutely glowing! Thank you guys for letting me be a part of it all!
