Charleston Wedding Photographer | Joy & Chris are married!

Recently I traveled up to the beautiful southern city of Charleston, South Carolina for Joy & Chris’s wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation.  Since we had not met before, I was really looking forward to meeting them in person.  When I finally met Joy at her hotel room at Harbor View Inn, I was given the warmest of welcomes and knew that despite the rainy weather, this was going to be an awesome day.

Thank you so much Joy & Chris for bringing me up from Florida to shoot your wedding!

St Augustine Wedding Photographer | Hope & Joe are married! Again!

Yes, Hope & Joe are married. . .  . again!  After 20 years of marriage, they decided to come to St Augustine and renew their vows.  It has been an absolute pleasure to work with such a delightful family for this really happy occasion.

Everything about it turned out beautifully, from their sentimental ceremony to their awesome reception!  There was no shortage of  style and personal details, which I love.

Here’s to another 20 happy years together!
