Kaitlyn and Tripp were married a little over a year ago in the backyard of the home in which Kaitlyn grew up. Their wedding was simple and sweet and there was not a dry eye during the ceremony (including mine). To say the least, this was a very special wedding for me...it was not only my third wedding, but Kaitlyn
, alongside her Mom Karyn
, was one of my photographers at my wedding four years ago and we've been good friends ever since. I was incredibly honored and touched that Kaitlyn and Tripp asked me to document their wedding day, especially so early on in my career. Kaitlyn and Tripp, I will never forget your sunny wedding morning, or watching your friends and family hug and cry together with joy, or how excited you were to (finally) be married. I feel so blessed to know you both and am grateful for your friendship! Happy belated anniversary! Love, Char
I adore the dress Kaitlyn chose for her wedding. Everything about this wedding was so relaxed and it reminded me what's really important...the commitment you make to each other.
Tripp is an AMAZING barista at Metto Coffee & Tea
...hence the coffee beans.
Kaitlyn couldn't decide on her shoes so she put all of them out so we could decide together.
Here's their first look that we staged on the back porch.
This one makes my heart melt.
These are family heirloom cake toppers (if I'm not mistaken) and they were recently featured in Charleston Magazine
I love this couple...my wedding photographer Karyn Iserman
and her husband.
This is one of my favorite images of 2011.
Brand newlyweds at last!!!!
Here are a few images I shot from Jennifer and Jim's wedding at the Carriage House at Litchfield Plantation
. It was a beautiful Spring day and such a lovely and intimate affair. Jennifer and Jim had a seated dinner overlooking the plantation and it was exquisitely arranged. Hunter made a Super 8mm film
of their day. I absolutely loved meeting this couple and being a part of their day! Enjoy!
We met up for a few shots at a beach house before we headed over to the church. I'm so glad we did! We were able to get some beautiful images there! I absolutely love it when a bride is up for outdoor and sometimes adventurous portraits during the wedding day. Trust me, it's worth it.
Do you remember this post
about one very charming Hanna Brooks Nation, founder of stationery design store, Gadabout
? Well, she just got hitched and I had the honor of shooting her bridal portraits. Hanna opted for a very traditional grey backdrop, keeping in tradition with both her Mother and Grandmother. This was my first bridal portrait in a studio so I was a little nervous. However, Spring Street Studios
was perfectly accommodating and I would use them again and again for studio sessions. Hanna, congrats on your wedding and I hope you and Nelson had a wonderful time in Paris!!! XO! Char
After we finished up with the grey backdrop, we took a few with some natural light...I just love how they turned out. I was delighted that a few of these were recently featured in the very first issue of Smitten Magazine
Omg, I love this image!!!
Hanna, you are beautiful! I hope we get the chance to work on many more projects together in the future! Congrats again!
