Middleton Place is one of my very favorite venues in Charleston. The gardens are spectacular, the vibe is so romantic, and the best part? The sheep! It’s no wonder Emmy + Ian chose Middleton as the place for them to get married! With the help of the fabulous team at MOD Events, their vision for a romantic garden-inspired celebration came to life in the most magical way.
Though the forecast had been calling for rain all week, showers left the area early in the morning and the rest of the day was perfection. Overcast skies make for the BEST photos!!
Following their First Look under the oaks, Emmy + Ian shared private vows. I am LOVING this new tradition! So many couples are now opting to do private personal vows after their First Look and it’s always such a sweet + intimate moment to capture.
After some portraits around the property, we met up with their wedding party and family for formal photos in the Octagonal Garden – and shortly thereafter, guests started to arrive for their ceremony. Following a sweet ceremony officiated by Ian’s brother in law, guests enjoyed the beauty of Middleton while drinking cocktails under the oaks. Dancing and celebration followed – and the dance floor was PACKED all night. Emmy, Ian, and their friends + family really know how to party! Here are some of my favorites from Emmy + Ian’s beautiful Middleton Place wedding…

Maui is a special place to Suzanne + Scooter, so saying “I do!” at the Hana-Maui Resort was kind of a no-brainer. Scooter’s parents were actually married there, so it seemed fitting to continue the tradition! With the help of Taryn Stark Wyant Events, they planned an amazing destination wedding on Maui and their wedding […]
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!! Irene was a bridesmaid in Michelle + Craig’s Tenuta Verdoliva wedding in Naples, so getting the opportunity to work with her + her husband Michael was a dream come […]
When Michelle reached out and asked if I’d be willing to travel to Italy for their intimate destination wedding at Tenuta Verdoliva, it was an immediate yes! I absolutely love traveling and Italy is definitely my home away from home, so I’ll take any chance I can to go back. Their weekend started off with […]
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 […]
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 […]
