anniversary session | even + marissa

We absolutely loved getting to reconnect with Evin and Marissa, one of our favorite wedding clients from 2012! Their beautiful Charleston got a little rained out, so on their wedding day we weren’t able to get too many shots of them outdoors. In celebration of their first anniversary, we got together at the Greenway in Fort Mill underneath the gorgeous autumn colors and captured some gorgeous and snuggly sunset images of them. Enjoy a bunch of our favorites from Evin and Marissa’s anniversary session!


sunset bridals at the ivy place | kelsey

Check out how gorgeous the beautiful Kelsey is in her wedding gown! Her bridal session was a last-minute addition to the month leading up to her October wedding, but it was a wonderful decision in our opinion. We had beautiful weather, a gorgeous sunset and a stunning bride- all ingredients for a lovely set of bridal images! Our favorite part was hearing Kelsey tell us, over coffee, about her family’s reaction to viewing her bridal portraits for the first time once they were done. She said that her parents teared up, and as they clicked through the gallery each member of the family picked different shots as their favorites, making it nearly impossible for Kelsey to decide on a print for the reception! That’s exactly what we want to hear- it’s the reason we do what we do! We couldn’t be more excited to share these portraits. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Kelsey’s lovely bridal session at The Ivy Place!


underwater day-after session | rodney + amber

Over the summer, we did three underwater sessions for our portfolio. When we were thinking about who we could ask to jump in a pool in their wedding attire, Rodney and Amber were some of the first to come to mind! We photographed their wedding back in February, and in getting to know them, came to adore their adventurous and fun-loving personalities. Amber is an actress, and Rodney is a musician in the band Young Drug. Together they are an unstoppable force of personality, charisma and stage-presence! We knew they would be so much fun to shoot underwater, and were thrilled when their response was “YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!” Hahaha. Of course, when they arrived and Amber began getting her makeup done by the incredibly talented Erin of Erin Ashley Makeup, Rodney asked, “So, is it bad if I can’t swim?” He definitely had us going there for a minute, and after his mischievous grin admitted he was joking, he confessed, “I can swim… but I can’t open my eyes underwater!” That one, he actually convinced me of until well into the shoot, when I got a good look at the images and saw his eyes were open in every shot! Hahaha. We were so glad these two were willing to jump in that pool with us and create some seriously beautiful images. Thank you so much, Amber and Rodney! And of course a giant thanks to Erin Ashley Makeup for doing such an amazing and waterproof job on Amber’s makeup for us!ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0001ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0002ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0003ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0004ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0005ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0006ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0007ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0008ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0009ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0010ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0011ProjectLifePhoto_ARUW0012
