Chris & Myra

I had the privilege of meeting Chris and Myra and documenting their big day!  These are two of the most genuine people you’ll ever meet.  Their small beach wedding was so joyful and fun.  I loved editing these images and just noticing how Chris and Myra look at each other… head over heels!:)  Grateful for my friend Leah from Leah’s Opus Photography for second shooting!  Chris&Myra-1Chris&Myra-2Chris&Myra-4Chris&Myra-5Chris&Myra-6Chris&Myra-7Chris&Myra-8Chris&Myra-9Chris&Myra-10Chris&Myra-11Chris&Myra-12Chris&Myra-13Chris&Myra-14Chris&Myra-15Chris&Myra-16Chris&Myra-17Chris&Myra-19Chris&Myra-20Chris&Myra-21Chris&Myra-22Chris&Myra-23Chris&Myra-24Chris&Myra-26Chris&Myra-27Chris&Myra-28Chris&Myra-29Chris&Myra-30Chris&Myra-31Chris&Myra-32Chris&Myra-33Chris&Myra-34Chris&Myra-35Chris&Myra-36Chris&Myra-37Chris&Myra-38Chris&Myra-39Chris&Myra-40

Margaret Edens

Loving these black and white images of Lash and Mary holding their sweet girl, Margaret Edens.  She’s my birthday buddy, born on April 12th, and was such a good little model baby for me!  Their yellow lab got in on the photo action and expressed her uncertainty over this new addition.  (And protectiveness, too.)

Morning Walk in Charleston

I took a morning walk with photographer Natalie Allgyer in downtown Charleston one Friday morning.  We met awhile back when I took photos of her sweet family which included a cake smash by her (then) one year old, Emma.  Natalie is also a talented photog and we’ve been following each other on social media.  It’s fun to see each person’s interpretation of the same objects through their photos!

Andrew & Sarah

Photo sessions with friends are the best!  I met Sarah over 7 years ago after we both moved to Charleston. We are both yankees who found ourselves in Charleston and clicked when we met.  We’ve been roomies and co-workers and at one point both at the same time.  I’m so happy that she and Andrew met and are getting married in September!  Love the way they look at each other in these pics:)

#tbt Wildlife Photo Class

Here are a few Throwback Thursday photos for you.  These were taken in 2006. *cringe*  It’s always a little painful looking at old work!  I took a couple Nature and Wildlife Photography classes when I lived in Winchester, VA.  Some of these are from locations in Virginia or field trips we took to Chincoteague Island or Ocean City.  Others are the Adirondacks in my home state of New York.
