When I first moved to Columbia, I wanted to connect with other photographers in the area, so I posted a little inquiry saying that I wanted to meet up and do a session swap with someone. I'm so glad I did because I got to meet Ebonn, her hubby, and their two super sweet fur babies. We got to head to the heart of downtown Columbia and spend some time at the SC State House, a location I've always wanted to shoot at, after making a quick stop at the place where Ebonn and Ben first met: Hunter-Gatherer. If you live in Columbia or are new to the area and have never been there, you've gotta check it out! Best burgers! Ebonn & Ben met there on a blind date, and the rest was history. I just loved that story! Enjoy the rest of these images from this super cute session!!
Kalla and Daniel's wedding was, hands down, one of the most lively and fun weddings I have photographed to date. We had fun all day long, and these two had such an awesome group of people surrounding them at every part of their big day. I met Kalla and Daniel back at the wedding festival almost one year before their wedding, and I was so excited when I found out they were fellow Clemson grads. I knew right from that moment I wanted to photograph their wedding so badly! I think my favorite part of their wedding (while it was all so perfect and not to mention absolutely GORGEOUS) was the live band they hired for the reception. Those guys made the party incredibly exciting, dancing with guests and involving the bride (scroll to the end) in one of their sets! I had fun, and I was only photographing it! Another favorite part of the day was sneaking away with Kalla and Daniel right before sunset for some glowy bride and groom portraits. We found the MOST PERFECT vine-covered wall and even ventured to the rooftop for a couple of shots! Total #weddingphotogoals if I do say so myself! Happy almost weekend, friends, and GO TIGERS!
Oh sweet Kalla, you are just stunning!!!
Loved sneaking away with these two right at sunset. I mean, how perfect is this vine-covered wall?!
These rooftop photos of Kalla and Daniel have got to be some of my favorite we took all evening! I just love that soft glowy light and sweet little downtown Greenvillle, SC as the perfect backdrop!
See below for proof of how amazing that live band was! They got guests and the bridal party on stage to dance with them and even got Kalla to play some electric guitar for us! Such a fun time and a lively party for sure!!
FAVORITE! So much joy!!
