Cameron + Jim

A little late afternoon rain shower didn’t interfere one bit with Cameron and Jim’s summer wedding perfection. Mount Pleasant Presbyterian’s rustic and beautiful portico provided the perfect shelter for some after ceremony pictures, and the rain moved through well before the couple’s rose petal sendoff from the Carolina Yacht Club. Cricket Newman did an incredible job of draping the club with floor to ceiling fabric and Jim Smeal’s towering cake was bespoke with lace detailing that mimicked Cameron’s dress to a tee. Oh, did I mention the monogrammed oak tree vodka luge? Yep, it was awesome.

Cameron and Jim, congratulations and it was my pleasure being part of your day!

Cameron + Jim’s Rehearsal Dinner

I met Cameron and her fantastic family four years ago when I photographed her older brother’s wedding. Needless to say I was thrilled when her mom called and asked me to shoot her upcoming wedding this summer. It was a treat to work with her and what a great surprise to see that her sister-in-law (and matron of honor) was 9 months pregnant! Cameron and Jim have been together for seven years, and the toasts at their rehearsal dinner were touching, sentimental and downright hilarious. Also, Jim’s speech gets my vote for best toast from a groom, ever. He got a standing ovation!

Mama’s little helper

When Marcus isn’t pulling every item out of every drawer in the house or insisting on painting the kitchen floor with his lunch, he can be pretty helpful.
