Welles+Jeremy // Married //Asheville

As creatives, creating can be exhausting. It's our job to create, to make something out of nothing all. the. time.

But sometimes we need a break.

Okay, often, we need a break.

We, as creatives, as artists, as photographers, need the opportunity to create for ourselves. Not for a client, not for a blog or for the industry but purely for the sake of creating. And these times are so, so essential that later on, when we're ready, we can produce the best work we can for our clients.

So when I was up in Asheville for a wedding recently, I was connected with Welles and Jeremy who were trustworthy enough to meet up with a stranger to take some photos.

We hiked up Max Patch together, in the strong wind and I got to hear stories about marriage, kids, moves in career and homes, stopping here and there to take portraits.

And the portraits the three of us made...I love them. So. Much.

Photographing someone for the sake of photographing was needed. And worth it.

These are some of my favorite photos I've ever made.

Welles and Jeremy, thank you for reigniting that spark within me.

Cait+Mike // Engaged // Charleston

My wedding planner friend Ali emailed me a while back about working with Cait and Mike and told me how much I'd love them. Building up to meeting in person, we chatted on the phone and emailed back and forth and I started realizing that Ali may be right-I liked these two before even putting faces to the email addresses and voices I heard. So on a hot afternoon, the three of us met for drinks and then wandered through the beautiful oaks of Charlestowne Landing and the streets of downtown Charleston. Cait and Mike, thank you for letting down your walls in front of my camera, playing into my weird antics and being okay with sweating up a storm. October...you can't come soon enough.

Tricia+Taylor // Engaged // Charleston

I always tell my couples that I want to know all the details; I want to be involved in their wedding planning process as much as they'll let me and Tricia and Taylor have fully let me in. I always tell my couples, that there is absolutely a direct connection between how much I'm let into their lives and the quality of my work. And I think the ease, joy and spirit of these photos shows how much these two have welcomed me into this season of their life and their story.

Gosh, I can't wait for their wedding in February at Boone Hall.

Katie+Scott // Married // Charleston

I met Katie not too long ago and yet feel so, so close and understood by her. After only meeting a handful of times in person, we traveled to Togo together to do work with Francis+Benedict this past November. As we spent two 22-hour flights and seven days being together 24/7 in a foreign and developing country, I knew we'd be (and stay) good friends. And anyone that you can be with for that long without going crazy almost immediately becomes one of your people.

So of course, I insisted on photographing Katie and her husband, Scott. They've been married almost 16 years, having met in third grade and reconnected over email in early adulthood. A few months later, after not having seen each other in years, they were engaged.

16 years, 4 kids, so many moves, numerous houses and a pair of killer overalls later...we're here.

I love you guys.
