WEDDINGS

2015 Recap + Thank You

filed in: Business

January 4, 2016

2015 was an amazing year.  It was my busiest year yet, with 53 weddings of my own and 3 weddings with Emily shooting as an associate photographer for me – that’s 56 weddings TOTAL!!  Crazy!!  The major milestone of 2015 was shooting my 100th wedding – I still can’t believe I’ve photographed over 100 couples on their wedding day since starting this adventure in 2013.  What an honor!!  Reaching that milestone in 2 1/2 years is pretty incredible and I am just so thankful for the path my life has taken since moving to Charleston in 2012.  It really was the BEST DECISION EVER!!

In 2015, my work was featured in print 6 times!  Jennifer + Tyler’s gorgeous Creek Club wedding was featured in the Spring 2015 issue of Charleston Weddings magazine, along with Ashley + Clint’s intimate nautical Wild Dunes soiree!  Lindsay + Thomas’ amazing Hilton Head wedding and a fun bohemian beach styled shoot were featured in the Winter/Spring 2015 issue of A Lowcountry Wedding magazine.  Brogann + Jon’s stunning Big Survey Plantation wedding in Yemassee, SC was featured in the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of The Knot: Carolinas regional magazine.  Our ballet inspired styled shoot at Magnolia Plantation was featured in the Winter 2015 issue of The Celebration Society.  Chelsey + Matt’s 4th of July wedding at the Creek Club was featured in the Spring 2015 issue of The Knot: Carolinas regional magazine, on newsstands now!  I also had 4 images included in various spreads in the latest issue of Southern Weddings V8 which is also on newsstands now!

I’m honestly just one person and there’s NO WAY I’d be where I am today if it weren’t for my amazing crew.  First of all… Emily, I couldn’t have done it without you and I cannot thank you enough for being my right hand lady!  You’ve grown so much this year and I’m thrilled to have you shooting weddings for me as an associate photographer.  I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to represent me + my brand.  Sloan, you’ve become such an amazing asset to my team, assisting and second shooting whenever needed, and I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for you.  Ramsey, your assistance on the wedding day is so greatly appreciated and I hope you’re learning a bunch in the process!  To all of my other second shooters – Caroline, Jenna, Kate, Alyona, Brook, Shannon… thank you for spending your free weekends with me whenever I needed you.  I truly appreciate it!!
