10 years ago today, two very cool things happened: 1) Tim and Heather said “I Do,” and stepped forward into a future they couldn’t have possibly predicted that day! Fast forward 1 decade, 4 pregnancies, 1 miscarriage, 3 biological children, 2 adopted children and 1 knock-down battle with Lyme’s disease later, Tim and Heather have built a beautiful life and family together that stands as a testament to Christ and his love. 2) Theirs wedding was the first wedding Brian was ever hired to photograph! It was before I came into the picture, but Tim and Heather were the catalyst that launched a passion in Brian that would turn out to support our family for the first of our marriage. It only made sense that, when last we had a good snow here in Rock Hill, we met up with Heather and Tim for a itty bitty anniversary session to celebrate the commitment they made 10 years ago to one another. And I just feel like I need to put this out there: Heather had just had a baby, mere months before these photos were taken! And she got her wedding gown on herself. And looked amazing. If that doesn’t deserve a medal, I don’t know what does! Enjoy a few of our favorites from Tim and Heather’s 10th Anniversary portrait session!
This shoot was quite a feat of accomplishment! I began planning this styled shoot in January of 2016, and planned to shoot it in February of 2016. I lined up models (former wedding clients, Joel + Kayla Bowen), and vendors and began collecting details for a late Feb. shoot at Fenland Christmas Tree Farm when our daughter, Avonlea, had to be rushed to Levine Children’s Hospital the week before we planned to shoot! She ended up staying at Levine for over a week, so we postponed the shoot and it was a good thing too, because I ended up going into labor 4 weeks early with our little Violet just 3 days after Avonlea came home from Levine! Finding an alternative date proved difficult, and the shoot kept getting pushed back and back until September! By the time the date was finalized, a couple of the vendors who had been willing to participate originally were unavailable. New Creations Flowers stepped in at the very last minute the week of the final shoot-date with gorgeous flowers! Velo Creative overnighted stationary, and final pieces of wardrobe and decor were pieced together just days before the shoot. But it all came together beautifully! We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome and we were absolutely thrilled when the shoot was published on Borrowed & Blue, a national wedding style blog, as well as Bustl’d, a wedding blog local to the Charlotte area!
