Lindsay + Matt’s Wedding- Pavilion at Pepper Plantation

We had the absolute pleasure of photographing Lindsay and Matt’s Wedding at the Pavilion at Pepper Plantation.  Between the perfect fall weather, the lovely bride and groom, and a fun and engaging group of guests, this turned out to be one of our most favorite weddings to shoot. The Pavilion at The Pepper Plantation is a fabulous wedding venue location in Charleston, SC! It is actually located just outside of Charleston in Awendaw, SC, just about a 25 minute drive from Downtown. Pepper Pavilion is located on the beautiful grounds of Pepper Plantation. Lindsay and her bridesmaids got their makeup and hair done at the Cottage at Pepper Plantation. The Cottage is just a short walk away from the Pavilion, […]

A Charleston Wedding-Stony Landing Plantation- Jocelyn & Donny

One of the most romantic cities in the world is Charleston, SC. Charleston is also one the best cities to get married because there are so many gorgeous venue locations to choose from.

Jocelyn and Donny are one of my favorite couples. […]

Bridal Portraits at Boone Hall Plantation…A Southern Fairytale

I LOVE shooting Bridal Portraits. LOVE. They are definitely more of a “southern tradition” and I find a lot of my northern brides have never even heard of Bridal Portraits, or “Bridals” as those in the industry call them. Being that bridal portraits are a long-standing tradition among Southern brides, they often are taken at locations that portray southern history and charm. And what says “southern charm” more than Boone Hall Plantation??!! I shot Jocelyn’s bridal portraits this past spring at Boone Hall Plantation. Jocelyn was planning on  having photos from her bridal portraits on display at her Wedding Reception. She also wanted to use her portraits as an opportunity to “test run” her hair and makeup, which is something I always suggest brides […]

My Favorite Part of Weddings: First Looks

Right before Christmas I got to shoot a wedding that allowed me to take some of my favorite types of photos…First Look Photos! I have much love for “First Looks” and I love to talk about them and share why they are so awesome. A first look is a moment staged and set up by a wedding photographer for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony. It is usually at a spot at the location of your ceremony. The groom would be looking while the bride starts walking down towards him. She will tap his shoulder, and he will turn around and see his beautiful bride for the first time. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE First Looks […]
