I laughed when Mary and Dan told me the story of how they got engaged. While on vacation in Florida during Mary’s birthday weekend, she was convinced by Dan that it would be a while before he would propose. After a nice dinner he took her to a beautiful condo on the water. When they got there, he realized they forgot to put the parking pass in the car. How convenient. Mary was not thrilled to have been chosen for this task but Dan had a plan. He seized the opportunity. He had the champagne . . . he had the music . . . he had the ring. On one knee, he waited . . . and waited . . . and waited. He had no Mary. He finally gave up and put it all away. Mary had been waiting, too. She had been locked out of the condo. Once reunited, he tried again. She said YES! I was thrilled to meet these two in Savannah for their engagement session and had a wonderful time with these lovebirds! I can’t wait for their wedding!
I’m happy to have photographed the previous two Charleston City Paper cover shots. I’ll have to admit, there were many perks to working on the food story! Yum! I’m still full. It’s an article highlighting 101 of the best dishes at some of the best restaurants in the Charleston area. I’m sure many of you will find this useful. Again, not a bad assignment.

This cover shot is illustrating a news based story on Dereef Park revolving around the potential development of the area. Click here for a link to the story.
Carrie and Jonny, who I love dearly, had the most magnificent wedding at The Presbyterian Church on Edisto Island. The day was full of excitement and joy and I was thrilled to be a part of it all. It was hard to catch these two without a smile and it was plain to see that this day was one they had both been anxiously waiting for. I believe they will look back and remember this as one of the best days of their lives – or should I say “weekends.” They had a full schedule of festivities and events for their many friends and family (including a fun and lazy day floating down the river in innertubes and other creative flotation devises). They were in the company of much love and support. Although this couple currently lives in San Francisco, Middleton Plantation on the island provided the perfect backdrop for a real Southern wedding reception and the flowers and decorations from Out of Hand were absolutely beautiful. I definitely recommend the Mighty Kicks to anyone looking for a really fun party band for their wedding. They were great – and good thing because these guests came with their dancing shoes on and ready for a party! They danced all night long! Many blessings to Carrie and Jonny as they start their new and wonderful life together!
Carrie’s best friend, Allison, (whose wedding I was also so lucky to photograph), delivered her baby girl the morning of the wedding. Helen Elizabeth Abramson, going by Libby, weighing in at 7lbs 12 oz and 20 inches long. Carrie was sad not to have her maid of honor there but we all agreed Allison had a pretty good excuse!
I am in love with yellow and the vintage feel of the decorations at their reception. Carrie and Jonny had their engagement photos framed and placed on every table. It added a fabulous personal touch!
I love this sweet moment. Carrie looks like she might cry as her father walks her down the aisle.
It’s official!! Look at my ring!!
