Middleton Place Engagement | Kayla + Parker

Kayla + Parker are engaged!  It was a family affair at their Middleton Place engagement session.  I had a blast wandering the historic paths of the plantation, chasing chickens, and photographing their engagement!

A Folly Beach Engagement | Anna-Morgan + Greg

High-school sweethearts, Anna-Morgan + Greg, wanted to have their engagement photos taken at the far east end of Folly Beach, near the Morris Island Lighthouse.  They fought sand gnats and the threat of rain, but were blessed with a dreamy sky and perfect lighting.

She said yes! | A Charleston Proposal

Drew contacted me a few weeks ago because he planned to propose to his girlfriend while they were vacationing in Charleston.  We emailed and texted and hashed out a plan to meet at Hampton Park.  With my second shooters and I hiding behind trees we captured Drew’s sweet proposal to Liz on top of the bridge.  From there we did a mini engagement session in the park.

Erica + Logan | The Wedding Day

Followers of the blog will remember Erica and Logan.  We’ve been following their wedding journey for the past year!  There was their fun downtown engagement session.  And there was their interview with myself and Caleb White from WedTexts.  Well, they finally tied the knot in beautiful Asheville, NC at Castle Ladyhawke!

Erica told me all about the big day and even shared some photos by Ryan Baumgarner.

SGP:  Tell us about the day!
EH: The “big day” was absolutely amazing! The weather was perfect, about 73 degrees in the mountains of Asheville. As you know, it was a very small ceremony with only our parents as guests. We drove separately to the castle, Logan dressed at the resort in his dad’s room and I in the castle. We didn’t see each other until I walked down the aisle, I’m glad we did this, we were both shocked at how great the other looked. We were able to be ourselves and only focus on each other, no stress at all! We wrote our own vows, Logan blew me away with his heartfelt and genuine words. We had a early ceremony, 11:00a.m., so we were able to go back to the resort and enjoy the rest of our first day as Mr. and Mrs. followed by an amazing dinner with our parents- it was perfect.
SGP: What was the castle like?
EH: The castle was breathtaking! A bit difficult to get to, the steep hill up the mountain was a bit frightening but completely worth the trek. We were able to tour the castle, separately as we didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony. It had a stunning view, several balconies, a tower with a rustic spiral staircase and the landscaping was incredible too! Truly something out of a fairy tale.

SGP:  What was the highlight of the day?  What moment will you always remember?
EH: The highlight and one thing I’ll always remember would have to be the look on Logan’s face as he told me his vows. They literally made everyone cry, including him. He started them by saying that he had spent weeks trying to figure out what to write down, then he threw his vow book to his stepdad (I later found out this was rehearsed the night before) and said he didn’t need to write anything down and proceeded to proclaim his love like I’ve never heard before. I don’t even think I comprehended much of it, all I could think about was how lucky I am to be marrying this guy right now and tried to soak up every bit of that moment.
Erica and Logan – thank you for sharing your wedding experience with us!  We’re glad WedTexts made life easier.  Enjoy living happily ever after.  🙂
Thanks to Ryan Baumgarner for sharing these photos with us!

Evan and Laura take a trip every other year for their anniversary.  They take turns planning it and it’s a surprise for the other person.  How fun is that?  This year it was Evan’s turn and he planned not only an amazing trip to Charleston, SC, but he scheduled a photo shoot for the two of them!
