Lindsay and Chris Bartholomew – 11/12/16

Duncan Estate – Spartanburg, SC

With 2016 coming to a close I’m doing a lot of reflecting on the past year (isn’t everyone?), but when I look back, there’s a reason I saved this one for last.  There are so many things that I loved about this wedding.

I love this venue.  Watching others say I Do in the exact place where you said I Do is beautiful and I’ll never get over it.

I love this photographer.  I’ve known her since middle school and have always known that she’s incredibly talented, but wow!  Looking at these photos takes my breath away.

I loved this day.  We planned and planned and everything came together seamlessly.

But most of all, I LOVED this bride!  Lindsay is the type of client that everyone wants, and I couldn’t be happier that I, of all people, got to work with her this year.  But I really, really love the way she looks at Chris, and I know you will too once you take a look at these stunning photos.

Sarah and Grey Pittman – 10/01/16

Duncan Estate – Spartanburg, SC

It was difficult to pick the few of these that could be added to this album.  The emotion in all of these photos is nothing compared to the feelings that were shown on Sarah and Grey’s wedding day.  Their families were so connected and they were so completely wrapped up in each other that it made everyone’s job (especially the photographer) that much easier.  I’m so happy to have been a part of their day and that I was able to share in the details.  This Fall wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful 🙂 And congratulations to the beautiful couple!

Lauren and Will Baynard – 09/23/2016

Duncan Estate – Spartanburg, SC

This sweet couple came to me all the way from Hawaii and I’m so glad we got the chance to work together!  Lauren and Will were an absolute joy and so was their wedding day.  The Duncan Estate could not have been a more perfect venue for them, and every aspect of both the wedding and reception was planned with sweet, sentimental details.  There were pretty place settings with vintage china, a very special guest that made appearance for the first dance and a great team of vendors, but the love between them was what really made September 23rd special.

Kayla and Dillon Barber – 06/04/2016

Duncan Estate – Spartanburg, SC

Rain on a wedding day means “Good Luck,” right?  It certainly did for Kayla and Dillon, whose wedding was absolutely gorgeous despite the small rain shower before the ceremony.  The wedding was filled with sweet, sentimental details like the bride and groom showing a love of service by washing each other’s feet.  There were also moments of pure joy and hilarity when the wedding party and guests choreographed their own special dances.  I was happy to be a part of their special day and I hope that their marriage is just as happy and loving as their special day was.

Nothing, including the rain and weather, could stop these two from thoroughly enjoying their wedding day! Amandela and Osric were joys to work with and were a great example of unconditional love shared between two people 🙂 Congratulations on becoming the Harris’s!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from their April wedding at the Duncan Estate in Spartanburg, SC.
