All of my brides are amazing, but Maggie?  She’s a special kind of amazing!  This girl emailed ME the day after her wedding, en route to her honeymoon, to thank me for being there with them on their wedding day.  WHAT?!?!  Photographers dream of having clients that completely trust them.  Clients who give them the creative freedom to make decisions about locations, posing, styling, weather, timelines…  Maggie gave me all of that and more!  After a long wedding season full of self-doubt and self-criticism, it was just the confidence boost I needed.  I truly thrive when clients trust me and I think it really shows in my work.  So, thank you Maggie – for being such a JOY to work with throughout the entire process!!  Your trust in me meant so so much!!

Maggie + Mike’s day started at Hampton Park, where they shared a sweet First Look before starting portraits.  Mike kept telling us that he was SO glad they decided to do a First Look and that was music to my ears.  I truly believe that every couple should do a First Look on their wedding day.  It truly makes the day more laid back, easy, and memorable!!  Soon enough, we were joined by their bridal party and let me just say… they have an incredible group of friends + family!  Everyone was so kind, so patient, so cooperative.  I mean, seriously – this wedding was my DREAM wedding!!

After group photos in the park, we headed to their venue for the ceremony.  Maggie + Mike said “I do!” in front of their closest family + friends, reciting personal vows that BOTH referenced Jay Cutler, ex-quarterback of the Chicago Bears.  After the ceremony, they laughed about how they both mentioned him in their vows to each other.  It was so sweet!!  Maggie + Mike spent the rest of the night dancing and celebrating with their family + friends.  It was a truly joyous evening and I’m so lucky that I was able to be a part of it all.  Here are some of my favorites from Maggie + Mike’s beautiful wedding at the Cedar Room in Charleston, SC…
