On a beautiful summer day in Tennessee, I was able to photograph a lovely, vibrant joyful celebration for Jessica and Zach’s wedding day. It was such a privilege to capture this union, Jessica being one of the sweetest brides I’ve met, with a passion for styling, design and a palette as lively as it was colorful. Jessica, better known as Simply Jessica Marie was an intern at Southern Weddings and I’m so thrilled that they published her images today!! Enjoy!

Let me tell you a little something about my dear friend, Ashley Rhodes of Ashley Rhodes Events. In all the times I’ve worked with her, (including on the beautiful Lindsey Ellingson’s wedding together at Palmetto Bluff), I’ve always been impressed by her zest for life, deeply-rooted and unfailing kindness and compassion, and uncanny ability to not only stay positive in tough situations, but to make them work in her favor. We worked together along with uber talented florist Emily of Em Creative Floral to create this editorial (featured on the pages of Weddings Unveiled Magazine) on a beautiful, windswept coast and this shoot was no exception.
For this editorial, we were at the mercy of changing tides, and so we had to schedule the shoot for sunrise, on a frigid coastline, in the middle of December. Not only did Ashley and her team prepare the decor and rise with me before the sun was up, but in a few shots she was working her behind the scenes magic standing in the ocean, holding down a billowing gown with sopping wet pants and a smile on her face and an enthusiastic thumbs up.
Working with creatives that love what they do, and that find the beauty in any and all circumstances is truly a gift, and allows me as a photographer to freely create; the results of which make my heart sing.
This summer I had the absolute privilege to be asked to photographed the stunningly beautiful bridesmaid gown line by dress designer Kate McDonald. Katherine and her entire team welcomed me back to my beloved low country with open arms and the images we created together were nothing short of captivating. Simple beauty and understated elegance helped capture the picturesque Middleton Place wedding location (the same spot my husband proposed to me no-less!) absolutely perfectly.
