Christmas is just around the corner, and I'm officially on Christmas break. The last of the exams are done, and Christmas music, last-minute gift wrapping, cheesy Christmas movies, and extra time with friends and family is in full swing! With just one wedding left in 2018, I've been so thankful thinking back on all the amazing clients I've been able to serve this year. Be on the lookout for a "Best of 2018" post soon! But for now, enjoy these festive images from Jessica & Jason's intimate elopement-style wedding I had the opportunity to shoot with Devin Hayman. And a Merry Christmas season to you and yours!
The only thing I love more than photographing weddings is getting to travel to photograph weddings!! This past summer I got to join Christa (Christa Rene Photography) on a trip up to the coast of Maine to second shoot Erin & Andrew's beautiful, intimate elopement, and it seriously was what photographer dreams are made of! I blogged about the trip itself and all the sites we saw earlier at the end of the summer. If you missed that post you can view it here. The day started with getting ready photos at a the beautiful Hartstone Inn & Hideaway. Where are my Gilmore Girls fans at?? This charming B&B was like the Stars Hollow Inn in real life! It was dream photographing there and getting to stay there! We then headed to a beautiful park filled with greenery and lots of flowers. Erin & Andrew share the most personal and honestly the sweetest vows I've eve heard read, that made even me tear up, under an adorable shelter at the park. We then moved to the rocky coastline for some bride and groom portraits and got to finish by taking them to the Camden harbor with all the sailboats before heading back to the inn for a delicious dinner. I'm so excited to share more of this wedding with you!
I love all my clients, but it is extra special being able to photograph clients who go way back. Haley and I attended the same elementary school, and we became good friends in 6th grade. She's one of those people that is genuinely always cheerful and that you rarely see without a smile on her face. Their engagement session was the first time I'd met Matt, but I knew instantly that they were meant for each other! It was so precious getting to see these two together and to see Haley so happy. They braved the very chilly temps at the Clemson rowing docks on Lake Hartwell, and it was just gorgeous! Can't wait for their wedding next Fall!
I love travel and adventure. I love seeing things from new perspectives. I love to find good food in exciting places. And I love making moments last for as long as possible.
