Lisa and Justin packed up and moved away right after their beautiful Charleston wedding this summer. I’ve had another couple move away after the wedding too, and I’ve photographed weddings for couples who didn’t live in town.

It’s sort of a weird feeling. It’s like, “What? You won’t be around? I won’t run into you at Whole Foods?”

Not that I’ve ever run into a past client at Whole Foods, uh, EVER, but it could happen, you know?


On the flip side, it’s an incredibly romantic notion too. Getting married and then whisking off to face the next adventure that life will bring, eyes forward, together.

I wish Lisa and Justin, who are so warm, kind, and fun, a wonderful journey together.

This next series is from my trusty assistant for the day, Bridgit of McBee Photography.  I love them. She has such a way with the guys. (Wait, does that sound right? you know what I mean.) :)

How great are these green apple place settings? I completely geeked out over them; even considered switching my logo from my longtime beloved lemon to a green apple. I love everything about them: crisp, perfect, bright, southern, festive but not fussy, organic…

Justin converted family wedding portraits to black and white to display at the reception. It was a fabulous idea, and he did a wonderful job.

I love this shot of Justin and his Dad. it has such an old-fashioned speakeasy feel to it. Can’t you just see them in an old photograph? Like the image in the opening sequence of Cheers?





Call me?







Isn’t this awesome? Cooling off at the end of “Shout!”

If you do it up right, that song *is* quite the workout.

I photographed Sarah and her extended family last month out at Folly. When Sarah, who handcrafts fanciful, customized wedding cake toppers, contacted me, I checked out her blog and saw that the bar was set high. They’ve been shot by some awesome photographers!


Hopefully I did their wonderful family justice. I know I had fun.
