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?
Isn’t this awesome? Cooling off at the end of “Shout!”
If you do it up right, that song *is* quite the workout.

It’s that time again!
Our blog circle assignment this month was our neighborhood.
We live within a 5 minute walk or 60 second drive of an antiques mall, church, coffee shop, bakery, catering deli, florist, indie movie theater, music venue, Greek restaurant, spa, the best mexican restaurant in town, etc.
You name it, we have it. But our actual neighborhood is fairly small and nondescript; a circle of sturdy brick ranch homes. The neighborhood’s character lies more in the people.
I decided to take a night walk around our circle and see if I could capture the quaint, dreamy, sometimes eerie essence of home after dark.
This neighbor recently passed away. He battled with his lungs for years, but refused to give up his cigarettes or his daily bicycle jaunts.
Two years ago he went on an Honor Flight. We didn’t know at the time about the huge homecoming they receive from the community when they return to the local airports. I wish we’d been able to go.
Now, head on over to delightful Marty Hadding to see how she interpreted the assignment!

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.
