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!?

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!!

Rashard & Lindsey | The Gatherings at Dorchester

Lindsey + Rashard marked the kick-off of our end-of-summer weddings, and we couldn't be more excited for both of them! The venue they picked was simply gorgeous (doesn't it show off their fun & romantic personality so well!?), and their ceremony was one of the most genuine, most beautiful we've seen.

All it takes is one look at their faces to know how oh-so-in-love Lindsey + Rashard are. We are so honored they choose us to document their wedding day!

To check out a more detailed look at their fabulous wedding day, take a peek at their collection! Their engagement photos are pretty rad, too! 


Kt + Troy | Pepper Pavilion Plantation, South Carolina

They say getting married in June produces magical things, and that is so true for Kt + Troy's beautiful (and dare I say?!) magical wedding. Their wedding was one of the most emotional and tear-jerking ones we have been honored to attend so far- and we are so honored this gorgeous couple choose us! 

Their wedding was a little bit shabby-chic rustic, and took place at the Pepper Pavilion Plantation. Although the sun was roasting, it couldn't take away the joyful spirits of everyone around! 


One Year of Weddings

They say time flies when you are having fun, and I have to admit that for us here at Woven Strands Photography, nothing could be truer! 

This August officially marked one year in business. A year! Although we would still be considered babies in the photography world, I am overwhelmed and grateful for the amount of support and trust we have received since last August. We came into this business hoping to eventually switch to weddings, but we are so excited that within our first year we documented 15 weddings- and have more to come before 2015 closes!  

We have met the most unique, interesting, and romantic people we ever could have thought possible, from all different races, backgrounds, and religions. Because of our amazing brides and grooms, we are better people then we were before.  

Thanks to you, we have photographed the most gorgeous dresses,

even more stunning brides, 

and some top notch decor + cakes, 

 witnessed some of the most intimate  traditions

and had fun with the most in-love couples.

Yes, truly, we are the luckiest! Thank you for a stellar first year!

John + Caroline | Ravenwood Plantation, South Carolina

Oh my goodness, the best way to describe John + Caroline's gorgeous rustic wedding is just all-over fun. This young couple (originally from New Jersey) knew how to throw a fabulous ceremony + reception- but still took the time to consider the weight of the commitment they were making. 

Aren't they just adorable? 

Love what you see? Take a closer look at their wedding day!
