The only word to come to mind is WOW when looking at this Beautiful young woman! Donna probably still thinks of her as her sweet little girl. She is still sweet but very grown up. We were all so terrified of the weather that was approaching the day of her Bridal Session. The schools were letting the children out of school early, I'm texting Britni do you think we should go and she's like we are going I'm getting my hair and makeup done right now and we are going. We all prayed that we could beat the rain. We were going to stop, drop, Donna was going to fix the train, Grandma was going to help me with my gear and I was going to click the shutter like nobody's business and run to the next spot. Well as you will see the good Lord was looking out for Britni that day because we didn't get one single drop of rain at Boone Hall Plantation it actually was a perfect overcast day. When we were on the way home, well that was not the case. We hit Andrews they were having Tornado warnings and pouring rain.  I just love Black & Whites!  Those Gorgeous Blue Eyes and the little Beauty mark just above her lip.  Yes I was inside a fireplace at this point trying to get the whole train in the photo, then I proceeded to lay on the floor that hadn't been swept since someone had lived in it.  Love that Laugh!!!!


Britni & William's Engagement

April 29, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This Beautiful couple right here are getting married this afternoon and I am so excited to get to witness the union of these two. It feels just like yesterday that we did their Engagement Session. We did their Engagement Session this past fall at Francis Marion University. The fall is my most favorite time of year to photograph because you just get the most amazing colors as you will see here. Britni and William were so nervous when they arrived but within in the first 5 minutes they were already pros! I will see you guys in just a little bit and we are sure to have a Fabulous Day! Oh and William be prepared to have your socks knocked off when you see this Gorgeous Bride walk down the aisle. Congratulations to you both!!!!!

 As much as Britni didn't want William to wear his old boots we had to at least take one at the end! Hahaha


Whitney & Erick's Engagement

April 16, 2017  •  2 Comments

I had so much fun with Whitney & Erick at their Engagement Session a few weeks back at Francis Marion University. I just think the campus is so pretty, that's why I always suggest it to couples. Erick was such a trooper. He thought we were only going to take 30 minutes to do the session but he was sadly mistaken LOL. He didn't complain and he did awesome. I just loved Whitney's jumpsuit, it fit her just perfectly and that dress with her wedges was absolutely adorable. And oh my word that Big Rock she was sporting was to die for! I can not wait to photograph their wedding this October!

Kimmie & Jonathan Wedding Highlight Reel

April 04, 2017  •  1 Comment


Mrs. Kimberly (Kimmie) Hancock

March 31, 2017  •  7 Comments

Oh this Beautiful Girl was such a Gorgeous Bride this past Saturday! We did Kimmie's Bridal Session at the Amazing Boone Hall Plantation back in October. Her mother joined us on our trip to Mount Pleasant for her Bridal Session. It was a lovely fall afternoon, perfect for a Bridal. Kimmie is going to kill me for what I'm about to tell you but it just made the whole day a blast. Mrs. Kimmie wore Red Panties to her Bridal Session and did not bring a spare neutral color pair. Poor Mrs. Lisa she was so worried that you would be able to see her panties. Every time just before I would click the shutter on my camera Lisa would say "Kimmie I swear I can see your Red Panties". Kimmie and I could not see them but Lisa sure could LOL!!! Every thing came out Beautifully and not one Red Pantie line! When they came to choose their portraits I had to tease Lisa. I pulled up the portrait she had chosen and I looked at it closeup and blurted out "Oh my God Kimmie I can see your Red Panties." Lisa jumped up and said "I told y'all you could see it" It was just a shadow from how the dress was hanging. I love my girls and their Mom's and that we get to spend the whole afternoon together having a good time and making special memories such as this one! Her Bouquet was made by Emily Matthews of Lake City. Kimmie's perfect Hair and Make-up was done by Lizzie Heath of So Lace in downtown Lake City.


Mrs. Elizabeth Langefeld

March 30, 2017  •  1 Comment

Here is Mrs. Elizabeth's Bridal Session. We did her session back in November of last year at the Beautiful Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant. It was such a beautiful late fall afternoon. Elizabeth's mom, Margaret joined us for her session. On the way there we stopped off at Cooper's Station just outside of Kingstree. The store belongs to their family so we stopped in for a moment to say Hi as we were passing through. Of course I had to have a snack, and on the the check out counter was a basket of the most delicious slices of pound cake that you have ever put in your mouth. This is why I can't seem to lose any weight because of these brides of mine. I have to blame it on someone besides myself don't I. LOL. Mom just couldn't take her eyes off her beautiful daughter all afternoon as we walked all over the plantation looking for the best light. As you look through these you will see why I love Boone Hall during the fall! The Beautiful Bridal Bouquet was made by no other than Leslie Carpenter of A&B Florist in Florence.


Blythe & Nick's Wedding Renewal

March 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Blythe and Nick originally got married at the beach in 2016. They renewed their vows in front of their family and closest friends at Pim Farms in Darlington, SC. Blythe is the daughter of Don and Pam Wallace and sister of Zane Wallace. Nick is the son of Robin and Wayne Thompson and Stuart and Cheryl Craven and brother of Jonathan Craven(Twin), Aaron Thompson, T.J. Thompson, McKayla Craven. Nick's Citadel Brothers from the Kilo Company with their beautiful wives,were also in attendance.

Blythe wore an off white Oleg Cassini dress that was covered in beautiful lace. She wanted to be comfortable so she went with gold Tieks to walk down the aisle in. 

Nick wore a white button up with a tan vest accompanied with a bow tie from Men's Warehouse and Levi blue jeans and you can't wear a pair of Levi's without a pair of cowboy boots.

Bryan Wells performed the ceremony (he's also the one who originally married them on the beach a year ago), he's one of their good friends!

Catering was by Dickies BBQ. On the buffet there was BBQ, Mac & Cheese, Green Beans, Rolls and Salad.

Spirits were served by Mickey Fins.

The Wedding Cake was from Publix, 3 cakes, one Chantilly, the second vanilla with buttercream frosting and the third chocolate with buttercream frosting and topped with fruit.

DJ: Denis Davis provided plenty of line dance songs for the wedding guests to dance to.

The couples first dance song was I Don't Dance - Lee Brice

Everyone had a great time even though the temperature was below freezing and we had snow the next day. 


Blythe & Nick's Engagement-Bridal Session

March 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Nick and Blythe married on the beach back in 2016. So they skipped their Engagement and Bridal Session and went straight to the Wedding! Since they were already married they decided to do I guess you can call it a Wedding Session???? We went to Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant on an overcast cool day in February. We had a great time and got lots of great images! Once we were done at Boone Hall we took a little trip to Charleston and went to The Citadel, Nick's Alma Mater. You could just see how proud Nick was to walk around campus with his Beautiful Wife as the officers would pass by and salute them! Nick and Blythe renewed their vows March 11th. I will be posting a blog of their wedding renewal tomorrow morning. 


Hillary & Taylor's Wedding

March 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

If you could look up the words Pure Sweetness it would show a picture of Hillary & Taylor. Hillary a sweet beautiful southern young lady and Taylor with his strong southern accent that would bring any girl to her knees. I have so enjoyed these two from day one when we went on their Engagement Session, Hillary couldn't look at Taylor without giggling and you could just see the love Taylor had in his eyes when she would giggle. Hillary and Taylor chose one of my favorite Wedding Venues deep in the country of Marion Hidden Acres owned and operated by one Donny Gerald. From the old store down the dirt road to the Gorgeous Old Aged Wood Wedding Chapel with the ole time wooden pews and stained glass windows to The New Ballroom with the most Beautiful Wooden Ceilings you will ever see.

Hillary chose a Beautiful Ivory Mermaid Style Wedding Gown Designed by Sophia Toll made of lace and embellished with crystals and she chose to accent her gown with a belt designed by David Tutera. Hillary's Shoes were silver with crystals by designer Antonio Melani. Her veil was mid length accented with crystals along the outer edges. Hillary chose to have her hair pulled back by a hair comb with crystals. Earrings were by Givenchy and her bracelet was a gift from her parents.

Hillary's Bridesmaids dresses were full length and coral.

Hillary's something borrowed was her mother's garter that she wore in her wedding. The something old and blue was very sentimental, it was Hillary's baby bonnet that turns into a handkerchief that her mother saved to give to her on her wedding day, how sweet was that. Mrs. Susan added a Blue P for the Blue. 

Taylor and his groomsmen spent the morning at McLellan Park, just minutes from Hidden Acres, shooting skeets and trying to prove who was the better marksmen. While Hillary and her Bridesmaids were in the Hidden Acres Beauty Shop getting all dolled up.

Taylor and Hillary chose some of the Best Wedding Vendors in the business. Hillary's hair was done by Erin Wade and the Bridesmaids hair was done by Brittany Brockington. All makeup was done by Leann Davis all from The Pink Hanger at 5 points in Florence. 

The Florist was my girl Leslie of A&B Florist on Cashua Dr. in Florence. Hillary chose a lovely rounded bouquet using blue hydrangeas, peach Juliet garden roses, peach hypericum berries, pink lisianthus and seeded eucalyptus. 

Taylor and Hillary's Ceremony was performed by their dear friend Mr. Tim Harris.

The catering was done by Hidden Treasures with Shirley & James Barefoot from Patrick, SC. Hidden Treasures set up a gorgeous display of fruit and vegetables in the the pavilion during cocktail hour. The buffet consisted of BBQ, coleslaw, broccoli salad, crab dip, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, green beans, rolls and hand carved Prime Rib.

The wedding cake was by Marie Rouylle. It was a 3 tier vanilla cake with a touch of lemon with the most real looking beautiful fondant editable flowers I have ever seen. 

Mickey Finns provided and served the spirits to help with the abundance of dancing that took place.

Hillary and Taylor chose the song for their first dance You Make It Look So Easy by Eric Church.

They danced the night away with lots of country and modern line dancing music provided by no other than DJ Dan E Lockemy. When he says he's there until the last one is standing he means himself. I wasn't there to witness but it was a blast until I left. 

Taylor and Hillary had a sparkler exit and we took a few photos near the pond with the lighted trees where Hillary's dad welcomed Taylor to the Happy Place which brought Hillary and Taylor to tears. It was an amazing day.

Thank you to my team of warriors that helped. Peter Holst for doing the wedding video, Devin Eldred of Devin Eldred Photography for 2nd shooting and Kaitlyn Floyd for assisting. 

There are just too many photos to post to the blog so follow the link to their gallery. If you were a guest and see a photo you would like to have, you have the option to purchase on the site. If you didn't see the video the 2nd link will carry you there.
