Our Year Review || 2015

2015 flew by so fast! It seems like just yesterday, 2015 was around the corner and we were gearing up for a New Year. At that time, we had only been in business for a month, and were anxious about 2015. How many weddings would we get the chance to shoot? How many new and interesting families would we meet? Would people continue to like our work as we grew as photographers? 

May 2015

May 2015

Our first 'big' event was a gorgeous vintage-inspired wedding at Alhambra Hall. It was the perfect first introduction for what large weddings entailed and looked like for us- and we fell completely in love with every aspect of the wedding day. 

After that wedding, spring came and went oh so fast. We had our share of ups and downs. Some mistakes were made and new experiences were shared. Because of these springtime 'growing pains', Woven Strands Photography became better then we could have hoped for. All of our spring brides took a chance on us, and for that we are oh so grateful.

During this time, we found out we were pregnant with our first child! We were worried about our future couples and how they would react, and how our business would fare, but our summer & fall brides embraced our growing family and trusted us still to document their beautiful days. These fall & summer weddings is when our style finally came to completion. Photo-journalistic, bright & airy with a hint of drama.

In October, we welcomed our new baby, Joy Elise. In those months following, we took a break from the intensity of weddings and got to focus on the families who choose us to document their lives.

Tonight, the final night of 2015, we pick up where we started. We're joining a beautiful couple tonight at Alhambra Hall to celebrate their 'I do's' until the New Year comes ringing. What better way for us to celebrate a year full of challenged, change, and growth!?

Sydney & Taylor's Spring Engagement Session

Sydney & Taylor's Spring Engagement Session

Woven Strands Photography has grown much more in 2015 then us two newly-wed, starry-eyed photographers could have even imagined in the beginning of 2015. We are so grateful to God for his continuous favor, for our brides & grooms for their trust and referrals, and of course the families who encourage us and allow us to document another beautiful stage of life. 

It's been a good year, 2015. Here's to many more!!

The Todd Family

Three generations here. The Todd Family was easily one of the funnest family sessions we've had! From the lively group shots to the more intimate photos, the Todd's kept things real with their sense of humor and and very apparent love for each other.


Jeff first knew the Todd's back in his days in high school. After staying loosely in touch with family who still attend, nearly four years later we had the super-fun oppertunity to photograph their entire family this past Thanksgiving! Totally in love with the winter look South Carolina brings. 

Lee Family | Hampton Park

Meet the Lee family. Clearly adorable and a blast to photograph, this Wisconsin-based family drove down to South Carolina to visit family. While they were in the neighborhood, they asked us to capture their family. Heck to the yes! 

Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate. Right at our appointed meeting time, it decided to not just rain... but pour. At first, we hid among the trees trying to stay dry. But this adventurous family decided to embrace the rain, creating some super fun memories. We were lucky enough to have the sun poke out at the very end- and we couldn't be happier! 

Rustic Cottageville, SC Extended Family Session

They say 'the more the merrier', and in the case of Catie Myers and her family, this phrase is oh so accurate. 


We hiked to Cottageville, SC for a super fun family session with this awesome family! Little Gracie is new to this wonderful world, so her grandparents and uncle & aunt travelled from Georgia and California to meet this precious child.  We are so excited to work with Catie + her fabulous family again!

Some people just make your heart happy. 


And the Rodgers are certainly some of those people. Meet Caleb + Codi, parents who have style. Together, they have precious Charlotte, one of the most adorable, people-loving kiddos. Ever. 


A few weeks ago, we had the immense pleasure of documenting the Rodger's family out at the Old Santee Canal Park in Moncks Corner, SC. As you can tell, we had perfect lighting and the most charming day. This park is now one of our favorite places to shoot!
