If you didn’t see part one of Kevin and Lindsay’s dreamy weekend, click here.
So I’ve been dying to show you some of my favorite images from one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve been able to shoot. This is the venue and property of “The Inn at Palmetto Bluff: A Montage Resort.” It is a dream everywhere you look.
Kevin and Lindsay had cottages on the property where they got ready, their ceremony took place at the small chapel on the property, the cocktail hour was on the lawn in front of the water and the reception was in the ballroom of the club house.
I feel like Jesus just smiled on us all, as we had the most amazing weather, light, and the perfection of sweet, sweet moments. I’m in awe and still floored at how amazing this day was for me, my second shooter, and my assistant.
I hope everyone loves these images as much as I do.
Congrats, Lindsay & Kevin! Thank you so very much for letting us be there on your wedding day!
And thank you to The Inn at Palmetto Bluff for everything!
Behind the scenes…
So little did you know, but… I was/am 34 weeks pregnant with my second little boy, Atlas Noble. I’m currently due in 4-5 weeks (which is why this wedding is going up so quickly on the blog.) My assistant, Kaitlin Spellman, was an angel to me all weekend. She snapped a few photos of me so that everyone can see my crazy, large self doing what I love. Let’s just say I didn’t start hurting until I sat down to eat my dinner during the reception. That’s when I realized… “Oh yeah, I’m pregnant.” …oh, and also when I hit the ground to get the shot of Lindsay putting on her shoe’s…”Oh yeah, I have a bump..”
You can come now, baby Atlas… I’m done editing. haha!
Everyone knows her as Ariella, I know her as Kami. She is a childhood friend that me and my brother spent so much time with. (She was even my flute teacher!) Kami is a fighter and always has been. She was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at a very young age and has fought for her life over and over again. She graduated college as a lawyer and her fighting led her to amazing things like working as an attorney for Mayer Bloomberg in NYC. She spent some time living in Israel and came back to the states…. the last few years she has been fighting for her life and has almost died quite a few times the last couple years. It’s been a very rough year for her.
She recently contacted me to see if I would do a shoot for her. (we haven”t seen each other in 13-15 years, but have been friends on facebook keeping up with each other.) She recently won Miss Wheelchair North Carolina and wanted some photos for it. (You’ll see her wearing a crown in a few photos!)
We spent an evening at a new venue in Mooresville “The Historic Plantation House at Langtree” (which has lots of childhood meaning for both Kami and I- long story) We fought rain and made the most of it! I’m so happy I got to do this with her.
When Laura contacted me about shooting her wedding I was so excited! I have never shot on an aircraft carrier before, nor have I ever done a wedding like this before. Completely new ground for me and something fabulous to add to my portfolio. I’ve enjoyed chatting with Laura the last 8 months or so as she’s talked about all the exciting things she wanted to do for photos. She was a smart girl, and let us have plenty of time to take lots of photos of her and Chris.
My friend Julia (Check out her work here) and I spent the weekend in Charleston together. Lots of driving and exploring new things. She was an amazing second shooter for me, I’m blessed to have been able to have her along side of me.
We have quite a few different locations for the portraits we did. We started on the Isle of Palm at The Palm hotel, and then ventured to the out side gate area of Boone Plantation, and then on to the boat.
Laura and Chris, thank you so much for choosing us to shoot your day at the USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC! We loved it!
PS: Disclaimer, I had to try to tone it down with details of the ship… I mean…. come on…. it was amazing!
