I had the absolute honor in June of photographing the beautiful wedding day of such a sweet friend! Sarah and I met almost a decade ago in college, working at our silly little tanning salon job! As a talented artist, Sarah did my wedding day makeup and she’s dolled up several of my brides since Brian and I started this business. Throughout the highs and lows of the last several years, Sarah has never wavered in her faith that God is in control and the He had the perfect husband waiting for her. Her wedding day to Peter, her Prince Charming, was simply one of the purest, intimately beautiful and love-filled days I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. I couldn’t help but beam with happiness for this darling girl all day long. I’m so thrilled that Peter and Sarah have found each other and are now settled in as husband and wife. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Peter and Sarah’s wedding day!
Oh man. What an adventure! Brian and Karine’s destination wedding in NJ was 1 weekend, 24 combined driving hours (several of those in DC traffic lol), 1 flat tire, 1 second-shooter (my wonderful friend Julia of Amore Vita Photography), and ultimately 3 crazy but fun days of working with one of the sweetest couples on earth! Brian has been a friend of our family for many years. He moved to Louisville, KY to attend Southern Seminary, and met Karine when they were neighbors and both working in ministry. They spent many months getting to know each other as friends, unable to discuss the possibility of dating due to the obligations of Karine’s internship. But the minute her internship was over (literally, the minute), they had a relationship-defining talk and soon after, Brian proposed! We met Karine for the first time here in South Carolina, when Brian brought her to town after their engagement. A few months later, we got to take their rainy-day engagement photos while we were in Louisville 3 weeks before their wedding for Michael and Melissa’s wedding! And in July, I got to capture their sweet, backyard wedding in Karine’s hometown in New Jersey. It was blazing hot, but such a wonderful day regardless. It was beautiful to see how perfectly each of them fit in with the other’s friends and family. It was encouraging to see so many friendly faces in a brand new place. And it was an absolute blast to watch the Charleston Southern crew breaking it down HARD on the dance floor (as they do). We’re so thrilled for these two, and know they’re meant for great things. Enjoy some of our favorites from Brian and Karine’s wedding!
