Chattooga Belle Farm June Wedding

Kelly and Neil have been together for 5 years before they tied the knot! Their commitment and loyalty to each other was such a breathe of fresh air for me to see. 

So! Kelley was born in a major rain storm and every important day of her life after that was filled with rain i.e. prom, birthdays, etc. Including her wedding day! I believe they do say rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck, so nevertheless we somewhat welcomed it. God knew what we just needed weather wise that day, it rained when we didn't need to be taking photos outside and the overcast sky made for the perfect mid day lighting!!  

It was such a beautiful day from the view, to the gorgeous decor and color choices, and last but not least the warmth you felt just being around these two lovely people. It was such a blessing and honor to be your wedding photography Kelley and Neil! Thank you SO much for allowing me to play such a big part of such an important day of your life.   

Also props to my INCREDIBLE second shooter Justin Nix. He killed it! Brett (my husband and second shooter) was at a different wedding that day shooting.

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 



Tyler + Brianna // Fair Engagement Session <3

Tyler and Brianna are some of the most genuine humans you could ever meet. I have had the privilege of photographing these two twice now! When I came to Brianna with the idea of shooting their engagement pictures at the fair she was ecstatic! Little did I know that her and Tyler's first date was at the state fair. How neat :)  

These two have been friends for years and met through mutual friends, tyler remembers the first time seeing Brianna... He told me that they were at Suite 8 and she was jumping on a couch in a harms way crew neck! These two are hilarious, can't you tell? After that they both just always had a great friendship and connection. These two love the mountains, its their place to escape reality and just be together. They are so ecstatic about getting married. Some of the things they are most excited about are looking forward to having a family together, growing spiritually and emotionally more together, experiencing everything life has to offer with their best friends and loving each other more and more each day. Tyler let me know that he is also excited about getting to put his clothes in a hamper! haha  

I love these two and I hope you love their session as much as I do!! It's bright, cheery and will probably make you crave carnival food! ;)
