Hopeland Gardens Engagement Session :: Aiken, SC Wedding Photographer

Posted by on May 19, 2015 in Couples, Engagement, Photo Sessions | 4 comments

Today I am here with you to continue an engagement session that we started back in March. We took a few photos of them in the beautiful blooming peach orchards and then they wanted a few more in a different setting. They chose Hopeland Gardens in Aiken, South Carolina. It really is one of my favorite place for photos. Since I was a little girl, Hopeland Gardens has been one of my favorite spots. I dream of having something like it in my back yard! Nicole & Dylan are really comfortable and relaxed. He makes her laugh easily. The future Mr. & Mrs. Flippen. \/ I absolutely love all of the “spring green” going on in these photos. I promise it is not...

Spring, Peach Orchard Engagement | South Carolina Engagement Photographer

Posted by on Apr 15, 2015 in Couples, Engagement, Photo Sessions | 0 comments

I showed a quick peak of this couples engagement session a few weeks ago on my facebook page. Here are a few of my favorites. We will be finishing up their E-session this Friday. I am excited to see what else we get. They wanted a little different location for some variety. I am so excited for their wedding in October. They are so great together. I was also excited at how much they loved the peach orchards. A few of the images you can see them just taking in the beauty but in every image you see how they love each other. That is what engagement pictures are all about, right? I ran to get a prop and when I came back, they were dancing. <<PERFECTION>> Dancing...

USC Horseshoe Engagement Session| Joe & Kaylynn | South Carolina Engagement Photographer

Posted by on Feb 24, 2015 in Couples, Engagement, Photo Sessions | 3 comments

On the 2nd coldest day of the year, this brave couple planned their engagement session. We met at the Horseshoe on the USC campus for a few shots and then moved to a parking garage for some beautiful sunset lighting. Between my schedule and their schedules, picking a warmer day was not an option. There was no wind and as long as we stayed in the sun, it was manageable. I have been friends of Joe’s family for several years. His mom was my favorite teacher in High-School and i’ve don’t some photography work for their family in the past. It is a pleasure to work with them again and to see friends that I haven’t seen in awhile. Kaylynn (the...

Low Country Engagement Session :: Branchville, SC Engagement Photographer

Posted by on Feb 4, 2015 in Couples, Engagement, Photo Sessions | 2 comments

The low country of South Carolina is one of my favorite places. The landscape changes, you get lots of live oak trees, spanish moss and you get that relaxing deep south feeling. Which I interpret as, sitting on a beach enjoying the sound of the waves crashing. Branchville is not along the coast, but if you are in Branchville, you are headed in the right direction.  I met up with this couple at a small historic church near Ulmer for a few shots there and then we headed to the ruins of what looked like an amazing southern plantation home. Sadly, it burned down years ago and the foundation and chimney’s were all that was left. The location was full of that beautiful...

Family Session Highlights from 2014 | South Carolina Family Photographer

Posted by on Jan 7, 2015 in Children, Couples, Engagement, Family, Newborn, Photo Sessions | 2 comments

2014 was an exciting year. I had lots of new clients and loved working with all of them. I love when clients turn into friends. Another exciting thing about this year was watching clients get excited about using their photos as art in their homes. I cannot tell you enough how sad I am when the pictures just stay on a digital device. As I get each session ready for you, I fall in love with every-single-picture. I really loved every single session I did last year. I’m just going to give you a few of my top favorites today. I have a few more posts sitting in my “to-post” list  and i’m having a hard time figuring out where to start. I’m only...

Troy & Janalyn :: Engagement session in Ridge Spring, SC :: Country Engagement Session

Posted by on Sep 3, 2014 in Couples, Engagement, Photo Sessions | 0 comments

Troy & Janalyn were great to work with. They were relaxed and comfortable with each other. I am so excited for their wedding day. Outdoor weddings always make me excited, especially when they involve twinkling lights after dark. Janalyn is from North Dakota and Troy from Pennsylvania. Their wedding will be held in SC due to the fact that neither ND nor PA are great locations for outdoor weddings in November. Enjoy a few pictures from their country engagement session. Happy Wedding Planning Troy & Janalyn. November 1 will be here...
