Black Balsam Knob Engagement Session

Andrew and Mackenzie met at a New Years Eve party several years ago. From the moment they met they hit it off and just talked for the majority of the night! Mackenzie remembers talking to her mom the morning after and saying "Mom can you believe it? A firefighter asked me for my number!" haha

These two have shared lots of fun and adventurous memories together. Andrew realized he was in love with Mackenzie while on a trip to a camp in NYC, He got to see all the great things she had already told him about the camp and how passionate she was about the kids. He saw her do everything she could to help mentor them and he could see how much of a passionate, loving, kind, and caring person she was. He just knew he was going to spend the rest of his life with her. 

Andrew proposed to Mackenzie at Furman University during sunset beside the lake with their dogs! 

They look forward to doing life together forever, growing old and sitting on their front porch in their rocking chairs just talking about life. Their first Christmas, Their first flights as a married couple, and Their kids and grandkids! 

I love how much Andrew and Mackenzie love life. 

I believe this session represents that about them well.

Kelley's Bridals // Taylors Mill

Kelley is by far one of the SWEETEST people you could ever meet, she just so happens to be extremely beautiful not only on the outside but on the inside to. This lovely lady has a heart of gold. 

I met Kelley being a room leader on a youth retreat several years back! She was one of the girls in my room and convinced me to ride on the horrific Howling Tornado at Great Wolf Lodge with her, which btw I will never be doing again! haha Nevertheless it was fun and terrifying all at the same time. I remember her talking to me in the room about how Neil and her meet and how long they have been together, how much they loved Jesus and each other. I knew from then on that these two were totally getting married someday and would further the kingdom of God together.  

I had the privilege of shooting their perfect wedding last Saturday at Chattooga Belle Farms and I can not wait to share those in the coming month as well!! 

But for now enjoy this GORGEOUS bridal session taken at Taylors Mill in Taylors, SC
