Spring Street Style

Here is another beautifully styled shoot I was honored to be a part of with Makeup/Hair Artist, Rosa Martinez.  She styled this look to perfection.  We had help with the second look from Dandy Boutique, my absolute favorite shop in Charleston.  Our gorgeous model is Sam Rueter.  She is a local contemporary artist and one of the most talented women I know!  It was so fun walking the streets of downtown Charleston and creating these gorgeous portraits.  I hope you enjoy them!

Nina + Veda

I am probably one of the biggest fans of dogs IN THE WORLD.  My 5 year old Dachshund is such a big part of my world and brings me more happiness than I could ever explain. When Nina asked me to do a photo session with her and her 5 year old French Mastiff, Veda, I was ECSTATIC!  Why doesn't every single dog owner do this?!!  Dogs aren't with us forever, unfortunately, but having beautiful portraits of a sunset evening playing in the water together will be something you can treasure for a lifetime.  This session makes me so happy.  Nina is absolutely gorgeous and Veda is a whole lot of love and sweetness.  I won't forget her running into the water and splashing around....And yes, dogs can smile.  Check out my favorites from our evening together! xoxo

 

Ilana + Adam - Downtown Charleston and Sullivan's Island Engagement

Engagement Sessions are my favorite especially when I get an adventurous couple like Ilana and Adam!  We had originally planned on just doing the photos on Sullivan's Island at my favorite secluded beach but a few days before the session, Ilana asked if we could do some downtown since that is where they met.  Any chance I get to shoot downtown, I am ECSTATIC so of course I was all for it!  We walked down Broad street in the early morning hours and stopped at all these amazing spots!  I even convinced them to stop in the middle of Historic King Street for a shot!  After that, we headed to Sullivan's Island where Ilana changed into the most breathtaking dress I'd ever seen.  Their is no taking a bad photo of these two.  They splashed around in the ocean for me and got down into the sand....it was absolutely perfect.  Take a look!!!!  

Alicia - Nature Goddess Maternity Session

I'm so excited to share this gorgeous maternity session with you all!! Alicia is pregnant with her second baby!  YAY!  We did her first maternity session with her husband when she was pregnant with Caleb.  The photos came out great!  This time though, we wanted to do it completely different.  Alicia is so naturally beautiful, and her pregnancy glow is REAL!  When she told me about her blue lace gown and flower crown, I knew I wanted to take her out to Botany Bay on Edisto Island.  We did the driving tour and hopped out to take photos anytime we saw something beautiful...which was  ALOT!  Alicia in all her pregnancy gorgeousness against the stunning natural beauty of Botany Bay created these magical images!  I hope you enjoy!  

 

 

Lucia - The Vinyl Countdown

I had so much fun photographing Lucia at The Vinyl Countdown, an awesome local record store on King Street, downtown Charleston.  You have to check it out!  I love these photos so much because it was just us having a good time making some art!  My favorite moment was when I asked her to pick out any record for a shot I wanted to do and she quickly chose Olivia Newton John....It's like she read my mind!  I hope you enjoy them!!  

Sidra + Chris // Gorgeous Ashley Hall Wedding

It was such an honor to photograph my dear friends' breathtaking wedding.  I was so excited because if you have ever met Chris and Sidra, you just knew that their day was going to be filled to the brim with love (and lots of happy tears).  It was all that and more!  The devotion they have for one another is something right out of a fairytale.  All that mixed with the gorgeous backdrop of Ashley Hall in downtown Charleston and a ceremony in the family church and I was in HEAVEN.  Here is a little glimpse of their beautiful day.  I know this is just the beginning of a perfect life together xoxo.  

 

 

Strawberry Chapel Family Session

Nothing makes me happier than having past clients contact me for another session.  It feels so special that they trust me to document such important milestones in their lives repeatedly.  So when this gorgeous family asked to do another family session for them, I was ecstatic!  I have been wanting to go out to Strawberry Chapel for a while and it did not disappoint.  The lighting was beautiful, the fields and the trees, breathtaking....throw in the most adorable family ever and we had photo gold!  Baby T get's more precious every time I see him and Nate the Great Dane looks so handsome posing next to his family.  This session couldn't have been more perfect!
