Back in January I met this cuddly, adorable couple when I did their engagement shoot on Furman campus. These two just went together, you know, like peanut butter + jelly, like grits + eggs 🙂 I loved doing their engagement photos + I loved shooting their wedding this past weekend. Here’s just a small taste of the love being spread!

To my knowledge, Erica + William’s wedding at Mary’s at Falls Cottage is the first one I’ve shot for a couple who met through Match.com; it really does happen, lol! Rain + thunderstorms had been threatening in the forecast, + it was iffy almost right down to the wire, but then it miraculously by-passed us + the wedding went off like a dream 🙂 Falls Park is always beautiful but it was especially picturesque this day, with flowers bursting in color + tiny white blossoms drifting down from the crepe myrtle trees on the breeze. Mary’s at Falls Cottage was the perfect venue for this intimate, joyous occasion! Enjoy the sneak 🙂

The weather was blustery + freezing, but the hearts were warm + merry as friends + family gathered for Candi​ + Travis Fountain​’s much-anticipated wedding. The Barn at Forevermore was the perfect setting for this country chic celebration. This was a fairy tale day for a fairy tale romance {heart emoticon here}

This was one of the most special weddings I’ve ever had the honor of shooting. Ethan is the son of my first cousin, Ginger; Ginger + I went through our engagements + weddings at almost the same time (weddings separated only by 5 weeks) + Ethan was always very special to my husband, Derrick, + I. So I was thrilled to get the pleasure to shoot his December wedding! His bride-to-be was as beautiful + charming + sweet as we could’ve hoped for, + it was easy to see why Ethan fell in love with this girl. Their wedding featured all of my favorite things as a photographer: totally smitten couple, a bride’s faux fur wrap, a First Look to melt stone, rich winter colored bouquet, killer bride’s shoes, sparklers, + lots + lots of smiles 🙂

Now y’all see, I come by it honestly.

So I always ask my couples how they met; Nicole + Tyshawn told me they met at a bowling party – after a funeral. And that particular funeral resulted in not only themselves becoming a couple, but two other couples eventually getting together, too! My fervent hope is that, should I go, people fall in love as a result 🙂

Furman Campus is always a great setting for a photography session, but to get tree blossoms in January was a bonus! I had so much fun with these two, watching them giggle together and exchange looks full of affection + joy. Can’t wait for their wedding in August!
