Charleston Anniversary Session | Rachel & Paul Celebrate Two Years

Charleston Family Portraits. If you would have told us a little more than two years ago, that we would be planning Rachel and Paul’s wedding, they would have a baby, build a home, and we all would move across the country, we would have called you crazy, but that’s exactly what we did. Makenna was […]

Being a Charleston wedding photographer is what dreams are made of! A few weeks ago we shared with you this beautiful Charleston bridal session.

It’s 1961, Jerry is a local police officer in his early twenties and can’t help himself to notice the city’s secretary Patricia, as she walks down the hall past his office each morning.

A Paris Anniversary Session. We are shaking with excitement right now! Literally trembling as the adrenalin runs though us!

That could sum up what we feel like right […]

Big Sur Anniversary Session | Big Sur Photographer | Todd & LeAnne

Couples portraits don’t end on your wedding day. I totally understand life happens. I remember the nursery rhyme very well… First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes careers, families, mortgages, and everything else that makes us “adults,” right? I shouldn’t be the one to talk, during our 15 years of marriage we’ve had couples […]

Connect Retreat Anniversary Session | Windshape Retreat Center | Brent & Jillian | Rome, Georgia

Last year at the Connect Retreat, which is a Christian retreat for couples in business together, I assumed most couples were photographers.
