Rachel + Ethan | Madison, GA Winter Wedding

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 🙂

Nicole + Tyshawn | Furman Campus Engagement Session

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!

Brylie | Evergreen Plantation Senior Session

You know that Maybelline commercial where they sign,”Maybe she’s born with it,”? I think this girl was definitely born with it. Brylie was so poised, so confident and lovely and self-possessed that I found it hard to believe she was only a graduating senior. We shot her senior photo session at the panoramic Evergreen Plantation on a mild fall day. There was a haze in the distance from the wildfires that have been burning in western North Carolina but we still had a gorgeous golden sunset. Add to that rolling pastures, a vintage pickup truck, and grand oak trees and you have a winner 🙂

Caitlin + Matthew | Thornblade Country Club Wedding Sneak Peek

Ahh, this wedding! I am a sucker for sentiment, + Caitlin pulled all my heart strings by wearing the wedding dress originally worn by her maternal grandmother, then her own mother, next her sister, then herself. And it was divinely gorgeous! The wedding day was perfect autumn weather, the venue ( Thornblade Country Club in Greer, SC ) was awesome, and the golf carts were charged up + ready to go! Enjoy the sneak peek 🙂

Vendor Chat with Wedding DJ, Justin Reid of Uptown Entertainment

Our Vendor Chat today is with Justin Reid, owner of Uptown Entertainment, a Greenville, SC based custom boutique entertainment company. Let’s get to know a little more about Justin and his company;

How long have you been a DJ?

13 years

What would you say influenced you to choose this profession?

I fell into it honestly. That said, I LOVE working with couples to plan their wedding day soundtrack.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?

Creating a once in a lifetime entertainment experience for a couple on their wedding day is the ultimate. Taking music and ideas that they love and creating through collaboration and experience.
Is there a current wedding reception trend regarding DJing that you are currently really digging?

Hot & Ready Donuts, lol. Well, kinda kidding. We are currently trying to create unique and trendy options for our couples that you won’t find anywhere else.
What’s the biggest mistake you see brides making when it comes to their wedding DJ service?

Hiring a friend, hiring a nightclub only DJ, and hiring someone who does it as a hobby. We spend a lot of time and money on training, research, and tools so our couples have the best experience possible and we specialize in weddings.
What are some questions brides should ask when interviewing Djs?

You can Google a get a bunch of “canned” questions to ask a DJ, but in my opinion there is a bit of an education we provide to our couples when we speak or meet with them. When you hire a professional, not only are they equipped to handle the best, optimum circumstances, but they are also able to make your wedding day special under not so great random circumstances, whatever they may be, that can possibly arise on your wedding day.
What’s the most interesting thing you can remember happening to you on the job?

Any time the Clemson Tiger is in the booth it is sure to be a great time!

You get the last word! Take it away! 🙂

We take great pride in being different and we are changing the perception of what people think about wedding entertainment and wedding DJ’s. We are not typical, and our wide offering of services are anything but average. With our knowledge and talent we have changed the game – no cheese, no corny games, just extremely fun wedding celebrations. We are extremely passionate about what we do and the awesome people that we get to work with and we’re always looking to innovate new ways to make your event unforgettable and talked about long after the last dance. Packing dance floors with guests of all ages, orchestrating flawless events from beginning to end, and celebrating life’s biggest moments is what we are all about.

We are not your average entertainment, and we’re glad you are here to learn more about our variety of services.
