Elizabeth and Chris were married in Columbia, SC at St. Peters Catholic Church. Their reception was held at the Clarion Townhouse Hotel. They are such a wonderful couple. We started at 6:30 am for breakfast and then left for the salon Shear Expectations where they all had their hair and makeup done. They were fabulous! While I was at the salon, Athena had met with the guys and gone with them to document their day. Both parties were picked up by CMI Limousine Services and taken to the church which is so beautiful. Elizabeth knew just what she wanted for the day and planned for a fun photo shoot all around Columbia. We had a blast! Then back to the hotel for the cocktail hour where the bar was open and delicious food was being served. They took advantage of the next hour to relax a bit and then it was time for dinner and the party. I have to say they really know how to have a good time. The night was filled with lots of dancing, skits from Pulp Fiction, karaoke, and support for their favorite team the Gamecocks. Party Time DJ was awesome and the party went all night long, even to the after party in room 247 (oops it was 242...) Congratulations to Chris and Elizabeth! I wish you all the happiness in the world!

I got to hang with someone that I can say is forever my friend. We have know each other since 7th grade. We had so much fun doing nothing but walking, shopping, and catching up on life. We don't see each other very much, but when we do it is wonderful! Here are a few shots of her throughout the day. She is now used to me photographing her all day because she knows I take my camera everywhere I go and she cannot escape! Isn't she beautiful?
Stephanie's party was filled with lots of advise for her in her new marriage, a round of pictionary (we had a group of wonderful artists...just kidding), a little get to know the couple session, and then the time for gifts and cutting of the cake for practice. Stephanie is all about organic products so I had the cake made specially for her from the Sweet Monkey Bakery in Asheville, NC and brought in. Once the shower was over is when the party began. I have learned that bachelorette parties can get a bit wild and crazy! So, with that being said, I am only going to post a few shots from the party and just leave you with this...how many people have you seen that wear their lingerie outside their clothes for a night out on the town?
Girls just wanna have fun! This weekend is all about fun. I am throwing a lingerie shower for one of my best friends Stephanie Willett. We spent the day getting manicures and pedicures at the spa and playing dress up. You never get too old to just be girls. The party is today so there are more photos coming soon...
Wednesday was perfect. I photographed Christina and Fred's wedding in a private and intimate setting at the Richmond Hill Inn in beautiful Asheville, NC. I couldn't ask for a sweeter couple. I had a lot of fun with them. How often do you see couples playing croquet on their wedding day? Thank you Christina and Fred for letting me be part of your day. Congratulations. Slideshow
There were times that I thought the wind was going to blow me right off of my feet. It was cold all day, but Joseph was rockin'. Our first shoot had to be rescheduled due to weather, but it didn't hold us back yesterday.
