Gately and Mikell are engaged!

I spent another lovely afternoon this month at Boone Hall Plantation shooting Gately and Mikell’s engagement photos. All of the azaleas were in full bloom and it was delightfully brisk considering the fact that we’re well into spring down here. And I’ve fallen head over heels for their sweet dog Harlow, who was surely in heaven bounding through the tall grass and meandering down oak alley like it was her own backyard.

Claire is married!

I taught photography at the College of Charleston a few years ago and aside from educational discounts on products I got from Apple, the I thought the best perk was meeting lots of potential interns. You always need free help, right? I was wrong. The best perk was getting a call from an old student who just got engaged. I had kept in touch with Claire Griffin because she worked for the Spoleto Festival after graduating, but nothing could prepare me for seeing her in a GOWN. A girly one with LACE. We did her bridal portrait at 14 George St, the incredibly restored home in downtown Charleston where the Spoleto offices are located. Claire also held her wedding reception at 14 George this past weekend. Bellissima! Best wishes, Claire!

Becky and Mark are married!


On a seasonably chilly February afternoon Becky and Mark were married at St Andrews Church in Mt. Pleasant and enjoyed a swanky reception downtown at Hibernian Hall. Courtesy of the talented ladies at A Charleston Bride, the front steps of Hibernian were all aglow in candlelight while pale lounges and florals graced the interior. Though the candles were impressive they could hardly compare with the glow on Becky’s face all evening!
