This year for our family photos we decided to take the ultimate risk… we brought our kids to the beach. Now honestly, when picturing this session I knew it could go one of two ways. Hudson and Beckham chaotically running around the beach, jumping in the water before we got any photos done, and basically […]

Allison and Ryan’s stunning wedding day was my very last of 2020, and what a way it was to send off this crazy year. Despite the challenges 2020 has brought, love is something that remains  at the core of what  has gotten  us all  through it.  And this day was filled with nothing but love. […]

One of the things I love the most about our photography community here in Charleston is that we have each other’s backs. So last week when my friend Hope was supposed to photograph Jackie and McKinnon, got sick and needed someone to fill in at the last minute, I gladly said yes as I was […]

Kerri and Kevin are officially and possibly always will be the #kdyecouple that booked me the furthest out from their wedding. You see, Kerri had been following me for a while on instagram and if I remember correctly, she DMed before here and Kevin were even engaged. I cannot tell you what an honor this […]

Heather and Anthony visited Charleston to visit their wedding venue, The Cedar Room, and to have engagement photos taken around the historic district of downtown. We met on a Friday evening that was calling for rain, but luckily we were able to dodge any rain until the very end of their session. Looking absolutely fantastic, […]

Contagious. It was the word used to describe Chelsea during one of the heartfelt speeches given at her wedding reception with Kyle at the Charleston Yacht Club. And I cannot help but to wholeheartedly agree. Chelsea is contagiously enthusiastic. Her laugh fills up a room and her personality makes her impossible to not notice. But […]

I’ll never forget the day Hudson turned to me and said, “Mommy put down your phone.”  We were upstairs in our loft which acts as the play area for my two boys, and I was drafting emails while he played with his toy trains nearby. While I was physically present with him, I was nowhere […]

Like so many other couples this year, Alyssa and Max were forced to change plans because of CoVid. The two were married in Greenville, SC and instead of going on their original honeymoon to Maui, Hawaii, the two ended up booking a trip to the beautiful The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island. While certainly not Hawaii, the tucked away oasis just about […]

I will never forget the day I sat on my therapist’s couch hysterically crying because I didn’t have time to come up for air. I was smack dab in the middle of busy season back in 2018 and was booked more than  completely solid. And I was exhausted. Sure the financial implications of an overloaded […]

Me? I was a Valencia girl myself. If you read that sentence and knew exactly what I was talking about, chances are you were an instagram OG too. Back when the original filters—Hudson, Rise, Brannan, Nashville, to name a few more—were all the rage. Those filters have thankfully been retired from the good ‘ol gram, […]
