Vote for your favorite couple – best wedding of 2017

In 2016 we started a tradition to honor our beloved wedding clients by sending out a blog post asking you, our readers, to vote on the “Couple of the year”

Each and every year I fall in love with my wedding couples and after 18 years in this business it still amazes me that I can tear up at the emotional connection that is shared and displayed at your weddings . To each of you, I want to let you know that I recognize your love in it’s many shapes and forms.

So I want to say a special ‘Thank YOU’ and pay it forward.

Getting personal allows me to get closer with confidence, to get to know who you are, and to be able to tell your story instead of only handing you pretty wedding images.

As a token of appreciation, I want to offer a special give away to one of my remarkable wedding couples so let’s have some fun together to start off 2018.

The rules are simple: the couple with the greatest number of voting comments on this post will receive a large 20×30 retouched fine art canvas for their first Valentines Day as a married couple. I’ll be counting comments on ONLY this page’s comment section – one per person – until February 12th.

The Winner will be announced Wednesday, February 14th!

Every individual who comments will be entered into a separate give away for a $25 Amazon gift card. Share to Facebook and Instagram, Tweet about this post, and get creative with spreading the word! You can earn studio gifts by referring a bride and groom to us too, check out how here!


Engagement photos- water themed session

Recent engagement photo sessions have leaned towards multiple locations and outfit changes so the couple can enjoy several settings and have tons of great images to choose from. Both Kristy and Sebie have a love of water and boats so for their engagement session we started at the lighthouse in Little River and worked our way towards ‘the point’ at Cherry Grove, with a quick stop at Vereen Gardens just across the State line in to North Carolina.

I loved this couple because they were fun, laid back, definitely had their own style and because they gave me the freedom to mix it up and be creative with both the location and styling. Not only that Kristy didn’t get too mad at me for ruining a pair of her shoes as we trudged through the marsh to get shots by the water (thanks for that!).

They also both loved vibrant and saturated colors so this entire session does not have one Black and White photo, quite possibly a first for me. Enjoy.

Be sure to scroll all the way to the end to see my choice for “best pic of the day.”

My favorite pic of the day used the abstract patterns in the shadows on the Lighthouse wall to make sure both her smile and that precious ring were both glowing in the suns natural light.
