April 2, 2020. Alyssa + Tyler’s original wedding date. Unfortunately, COVID had other plans – and they were one of the first couples to be forced to postpone their wedding. We were finally able to celebrate these two, along with their adorable daughter, Charlie, and it truly was the best day!
In an effort to keep things intimate, Alyssa + Tyler decided to have a very small wedding party comprised of siblings and best friends. Instead of matching dresses and traditional bouquets, the bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses and held floral lanterns. I loved this fun touch! Alyssa’s bouquet of colorful wildflowers is, hands down, one of my very favorite bouquets EVER! The guys’ boutonnieres were also perfection – especially Tyler’s. Roadside Blooms absolutely crushed it with the florals!
After a random pop-up thunder storm, complete with torrential rain and hail, the skies cleared – and Tyler, Alyssa + Charlie said “I do!” again, overlooking the Ashley River. Guests dined at a long, single farm table and cheered as Alyssa + Tyler cut a slice of pizza instead of cake. Overall, it was a joyous day and I’m so happy that we were finally able to celebrate these two.
Congratulations you guys and THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of your story!!

When Irene reached out to me, asking if I’d be willing to do a portrait session at Palazzo Avino with them, it was an immediate YES!!

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 […]
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 […]
