I first met Carrie a few years ago when she interned with a local wedding planner. We stayed in touch through the years and when she got engaged to her longtime love, she asked me if I would photograph her wedding. It’s always such an honor when someone in the wedding industry asks you to be a part of their own wedding day! Although a date change made it impossible for me to be there on her actual wedding day, I had the honor of photographing her bridal portraits at Lowndes Grove before the big day. We had such a great time together and I absolutely loved how everything came together!
For her bridal portrait session, Carrie crafted her own bouquet filled with yellow, white + green blooms. I loved the pop of color! She wore a custom Robert Bullock brocade ball gown, emerald green shoes, and tied an emerald green ribbon around her bouquet in honor of her Dad’s birthday, which was 3 days after this session. What I really loved about this session is that Carrie was so laid back and really leaned into the process. Despite crazy wind, we went out to the dock and those are some of my favorite images ever! I love how the wind played with her dress and her curly hair! So fun!
Although I wasn’t able to photograph her wedding in the end, I’m so glad I was able to do her bridal portraits at Lowndes Grove. We had such a blast together! Here are some of my favorite images from Carrie’s beautiful bridal portrait session…

I recently wrote a post about how much wedding photographers cost in Charleston, but I wanted to write another post to talk about the cost of wedding photographers in general. Total wedding investments are all over the place and the “average” wedding investment can differ from location to location. For example, on average, a wedding […]
When I got the opportunity to shoot Angela + Alexander’s destination in Barcelona, Spain, I almost couldn’t believe it. I’ve been working so hard to build my destination wedding portfolio and I’d never visited Spain before – so it was a no-brainer for me. With the help + guidance of Taryn + Dani of Taryn […]
