Kimberly & Brooks | Timeless Charleston Engagement Session

Engagement photos mark the very beginning of a lifetime of commitment, and are as organic to your personalities as you can get. Mesh that with a relaxed environment in a location of your choice, and you're guaranteed memories for a lifetime. Kimberly & Brooks' garden session was no different.

The word I would use to describe this couple's love would have to be 'timeless.' It was evident from our first meeting with them that their love had a certain maturity and contentment that is unique. Needless to say, Mepkin Abbey- a monastery and garden venue stuck in time- was the perfect location for this classy couple.

Can we also talk about for a second their fantastic color coordination? The blues look so good against the greenery in the gardens, which really makes them subtly pop. Plus, Brooks' striped shirt adds so much texture.

And don't get me started on the beautiful light! Mepkin Abbey is always a killer location, but this Friday evening sunset was just perfect.

We are so excited for their lakeside November wedding! Winter can't come soon enough!

Take a lot at some of our other engagement sessions!

Mother's Day

Today is a special day. 

Throughout the years, our moms and grandmoms have done so much for us that it's really impossible to ever celebrate them too much, which is why today is so amazing and so important. From changing our first dirty diaper to helping us plan our dream wedding- whether on a budget or with room to spend- our mothers have been here to guide us and encourage us.

Our moms were our best friends, our example of what a good wife looks like, our cheerleaders and main support. From killin' it on the dance floor to watching us walk down the aisle, they taught us how to be flexible in life and enjoy the moments.

So moms, today we celebrate YOU. 

We celebrate your patience. Patience in pregnancy, in waiting for us. Patience in our late nights and rebellious period. Patience through the entire wedding planning process, whether it was three months or three years.

Your unconditional love amazes us. Whether or not you were a perfect mom doesn't matter - because honestly, nobody is- because you created a beautiful story. Every adult was once a child, a child that you gave life to. We are stories that our mothers influenced and shaped. What greater honor is there?

The wedding process is beautiful, yet emotional. Many of us are grateful that we had our mothers to lean on- for guidance, for a shoulder to cry on, for a second opinion. Those of us who have since lost you, dear mother, cherish these memories even more.

To some of us, though, our 'moms' aren't biological. These moms may be our adoptive mom, aunts, our childhood neighbor, a sister, or a friend's parent. The possibilities are endless! They may not have delivered you in the hospital room, but still are a crucial part in who you are today.

To all of the mothers, of every shape and kind-  today, we celebrate you. 

Kyle & Samantha | Downtown Charleston

Couples like Samantha + Kyle not only get us super stoked about their wedding (as engagement sessions always do!), but they also feed our creative hearts. A vintage inspire session in the heart of historic downtown Charleston?! What more could we hope for?

This January day was perfect. Not to chilly (but really, when is it ever 'too cold' in Charleston?), and the sun poked out just right behind the clouds to give the most dreamy lighting. There was flocks of people (because perfect day = crowded streets) but from the way Kyle + Samantha were so in tune, you would have never known!

Taylor & Sydney | St. Andrews + Alhambra Hall

This past New Years Eve was pretty much a long giant party for us! We got to celebrate the coming of 2016 with Sydney + Taylor, one of the most fun couples we've had the pleasure of meeting!

From the gorgeous architecture of a 18th century church to the known and loved scenery at Alhambra Hall, Sydney + Taylor's wedding seriously was straight out of a fairytale.

Although the forecast called for 90% rain all day, the clouds held out until long after we were partying it up in the reception- and actually stayed out long enough for us to capture some gorgeous photos of the happy couple + their wedding party!

And seriously, the first look with her bridesmaids was just the sweetest!

And of course, the ceremony! Heartfelt + beautiful.

And, naturally, everyone ended the night with an AMAZING party.

Love.
