WEDDINGS

I am a proud #crazydoglady - they are my world. I could eat Mexican food 7 days a week... no joke. I love "reality" TV and I'm pretty sure I'd die without Bravo. I love pearls + big chunky jewelry, Starbucks, traveling, fresh cut flowers, coastal living, letterpress, and (of course) margaritas.

I absolutely LOVE coastal + plantation weddings. Spanish Moss, marinas, water, downtown Charleston architecture, and lots of bright colors are my jam! I've been shooting weddings in Charleston and all along the East Coast since 2011. My work has been featured in Charleston Weddings Magazine, The Knot, Southern Bride, and on many fabulous blogs including Style Me Pretty, Southern Weddings, Wedding Chicks, The Wedding Row + Grey Likes Weddings, to name a few.

well, hello there!

First and foremost, I am a sucker for rescue dogs and I am currently owned by two special pups named Beckham + Sunday.

I'm happiest at home with a cup of coffee (heavy on the cream & sugar), flipping through a J.Crew catalog AND Instagram, with a puppy snuggled on my feet.

Nothing beats an outdoor ceremony here in Charleston. All of that natural light streaming through the leaves + spanish moss? It's truly magical!

I love love love it when my clients want to include their four-legged furkids in their big day! And if they also happen to wear a floral wreath or bowtie collar for photos... perfection!

Sparklers are so overdone. I think doing a daylight "exit" as you walk back down the aisle as husband + wife is much more fun + photographs so much better!

I grew up on the water and absolutely love shooting coastal weddings! If there's a dock or marina nearby, you can bet I'll try to shoot there!

Neutrals are definitely clean + classic, but I love when clients aren't afraid to play with pops of color!

I don't know what it is, but a big tulle skirt makes my heart skip a beat! It's classic + fun at the same time... the perfect combination!

Fabulous sequin linens? Shimmery bridesmaid dresses? Gold foil details? Yes please! In my opinion, there is no such thing as too much sparkle!

I'm a big believer in meaningful traditions. Not seeing each other before the ceremony is not a meaningful tradition. For so many reasons, I am in favor of a first look - always!
