steeplechase museum wedding in camden, sc | christopher + sara

Christopher and Sara… oh how we adore these two! We have a tremendous amount of respect for them as a couple. They met in college, tailgating at the Carolina Cup! They stayed together for years and years, all throughout Sara’s post-graduate schooling as she studied to become an optometrist. Sara’s journey through optometry school took her to both Florida and Tennessee, and all the while she and Christopher put in the work and investment in their relationship to make it through several years of long-distance! We think that’s just awesome. And to top it off, these two are some of the sweetest people on the planet. We loved getting to know them at their initial consult, their rainy-but-fun engagement session, and throughout their wedding-planning-process. Of course the wedding day was a joy to capture, working alongside two people we enjoy! Not to mention: Sara’s immaculately sophisticated taste made every detail of their wedding a blast to photograph! The wedding took place on the same ground where Sara and Christopher’s relationship began all those years ago at Carolina Cup: the National Steeplechase Museum where the race is held every year. The classy, equestrian-themed event was designed and executed beautifully by Jessica Rourke of Parkside Wedding Studio as well as Fern Studio Floral & Event Design. The guests even got to sit in the grand-stands during the ceremony! All in all this was one of our favorite weddings of 2013, and we’re so excited to finally share it. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Christopher and Sara’s wedding!

train-track engagements | ross + laura

Ross and Laura… where do I even begin? These two! They are some of the absolute kindest, most gracious people we’ve ever met. We just knew we were going to enjoy working from them from our very first consultation 😀  They are so sweet together we have so enjoyed getting to know them throughout their engagement so far. For their session, we headed for some out-of-commission train tracks where we could catch a glowy sunset. These two snuggled and interacted so sweetly, it was easy to capture some adorable images of the two of them. Cannot wait for their wedding coming up in August! Enjoy a some of our favorites from Ross and Laura’s engagement session!
