Since Tara and Kellen are planning a destination wedding for next February, they decided on the theme of “jet-setting” for their engagement session. We met at an old airplane hanger in downtown Columbia, South Carolina. Kellen, a local business owner, worked some magic to get permission to shoot there and find an airplane to use for the shoot. Tara said the space gave her almost Pearl Harbor vibes and she envisioned herself in a long floral dress with vintage suitcases. They brought along their passports as props. She was only sad that Josh Hartnett couldn’t be there, but Kellen was an excellent stand in!

I recently met Caleb White of WedTexts at an SEO discussion for photographers in Columbia, SC. WedTexts is a simple way to communicate with your guests during your wedding day (and come to think of it, photographer, planner, vendors, etc.!)
I just downloaded the app, and it’s so easy – you just import your contacts and you can set up groups of people like “guests”, “wedding party”, etc. Then you can set up your messages and choose the date and time you want them to go out.
Thinking back to this past October with all the flooding we had in South Carolina, this would have been so handy! I was second shooting a wedding in downtown Charleston and the primary photographer and I were texting all morning about changing plans, where we were doing the first look, if the bridges were open, and even if the wedding was still on!

We had so much rain and flooding here in South Carolina this past October! Not only did it damage homes and wash out roads, but it was a nightmare for local farmers. Generally cotton is harvested by the end of October, but it was so wet that farmers had to wait for it to dry out a bit. This was a good thing for me since Dennise and Mitchell had their hearts set on a sunset photography session in a cotton field in November!
I met Dennise and Mitchell at our country house in Lone Star, SC – not far from Elloree and Santee. It was a beautiful day for playing outside, and we were blessed with the most gorgeous pink light as the sun set over the cotton.
Dennise and Mitchell – thanks for spending some time with me in the country!
