Liz+Justin // Married // Charleston

I couldn't have loved October 5 any more.

Bhldn gown,feather bow tie, chauffeuring Liz and Justin around downtown Charleston, Justin (truly) being speechless at Liz's beauty and wandering around finding the best of Charleston's walls and corners to take photos.

I'm so proud of these images and so excited of this incredible marriage to come.

Lacy+Matt // Married // Charleston

Photographing your friends' wedding is always a mix of wanting to shoot non-stop-feeling so honored to capture their day-and also wanting to hang out with friends and dance the night away in sticky, sweaty summer nights.

So I did both.

Love you guys, Lacy and Matt

Madeline+Jeff//married//charleston

Madeline and Jeff came out to Charleston from Denver to get married on what was probably the best day of May. Despite the vastness of the Ocean Course out on Kiawah Island, the entire day felt so intimate and still.

There were so many moments where I almost held my breath because I felt like I would ruin the moment if I breathed too loud or if I moved too quickly; I didn't want to disturb any of the calm and peace.

Even while going back through these photos, I'm reminded of me of so many passages in the book of Psalms where the psalmist writes "selah"…to stop and listen. To stop and be still.

Such a day filled with equal moments of selah and celebration.

Madeline ordered this amazing gown online, never having tried it on before. There was only one size left: her size. And the name of the gown: the Madeline.

Gosh, you just can't beat that window light!

Such a beautiful bride.

As always (…with the new rollerblading chin scar)

Every detail thoughtfully considered, friends and family from near and far, and a reception on the water in Stuart, Florida...the perfect way to kick off my 2014 wedding season.

Introducing: Tracie and Rutledge.

karlee+shawn//married//charleston

The day before Karlee and Shawn's wedding, I sat on the floor of an old church in the middle of downtown Charleston, stringing lights 4o0 lights through the balcony columns above. Karlee, Shawn, their friends Ashley and John and I spent four hours putting candles in vases, eating chips and laughing about how we didn't actually know about the things that were "supposed" to happen during the ceremony.

The following day, I spent the morning with Karlee and Ashley, a morning that will always remain one of my favorites. We ate quiche, listened to Matt Redman and watched Karlee's eyes well up when reading Shawn's note. I heard this sweet friend of mine say over and over how blessed she was, how excited she was to see her man later and ask to borrow Ashley's lipstick because she thought the red would be pretty on her too.

I've been a part of so many wedding days, but rarely invited into celebrations so gentle and intimate. I've heard photographers often say that it isn't until after weddings, looking through images that they realize the weight of their job, how truly special it is to be let into the beginning of a relationship. While walking down Tradd Street taking photos with these two, I fully realized this weight. The realization washed over me-how I was witnessing the beginning of love that does things, that takes action and that loves others so, so whole-heartedly.

If you've wondered what genuine, authentic, unconditional, gentle and easy love is, I can only hope that you see it reflected in Karlee and Shawn, as I always have. Their love is rare-not frequent in our society but not also not extinct; I believe it's the only kind of love worth striving, reaching and pushing for. And I hope you realize that it's what you too, deserve. So if you ever doubted that this kind of love existed, I hope that these two will be some sort of proof.

Lovelovelove.

As always.
