Bride and groom on a mountaintop after their wedding at Symmes Chapel, aka "Pretty Place".

It’s hard to beat the epic scenery of Pretty Place for a wedding ceremony. We are truly blessed to have this wedding venue just minutes away from Greenville,SC.

Bride and groom on Bald Rock after their wedding in the mountains.

On the way down the mountain headed to the reception in Greenville we stopped at Bald Rock for some Bride and Groom portraits. The overlook is amazing at golden hour!

Yeah I have to admit having a couple standing this close to the edge of a cliff does tend to make me a little nervous, but it turned out pretty epic!

Earlier this summer we had the pleasure of touring a new Travelers Rest, SC Wedding Venue , The South Wind Ranch. The first time I laid eyes on the property I was blown away by the sweeping hillsides and scenic mountain views. And did I mention there is a private lake that sits in the middle of the property! Couples looking for a wedding venue option just minutes away from Greenville with the feel of being out in nature should definitely give them a look. The vision and plans that Ron (the property owner) has for this venue are unlike anything we have heard of in this area. Couples will be lined up to get married here.

After our initial meeting we were asked If we would could come out and do an impromptu session with a pair of brides and grooms on the grounds. We of course jumped at the chance to get to capture some of this beautiful scenery and work with an unknown canvas of sorts. Needless to say our creative minds were spinning at full speed from the moment we walked out on the property. From rustic docks on the lake and chicly disheveled barns to a mountain sunset view (which happens to be the location of one of the chapels being built) there was no shortage of backdrops. I can’t wait to get back out there again.

Please enjoy some of my favs from the session!

Elise and Tyler’s Huguenot Loft Wedding Ceremony and Reception was one of the funnest celebrations that we have been able to witness. When I say it was a party I mean it was a party. After getting married underneath a beautifully decorated arbor (that was hand built by Elise’s dad!) it was on to an evening filled with love, laughter, and a packed dance floor. We had such an awesome day with these two and their amazing family and friends that it is hard to put it into words to do it justice.

Yep I know that title got your attention, “Greenville SC Engagement Session in the rain”. When we were planning this session for Dallas and Eric we rescheduled at least 3 times because of the wettest summer season that I can remember. When we finally picked a day with a less than 20% chance of rain, you guessed it we got some wet weather. Luckily for us we had several breaks in the typical summer storm for some fun in the park, and as a bonus there weren’t that many people to shoot around.  I love the way the skies get this super vibrant shade of blue right after a storm. Plus the last shot of the night we gave them an umbrella and had them stand out in the middle of a downpour for an epic shot that is one of my favorite engagement photos of the season. Like I tell my couples about rain on their wedding day, sometimes rain is a good thing because there are some shots you just cant get unless it does rain. Plus it makes for a great story of a day that they will always remember.

Please enjoy some of my favs from this epic session!

We had a great time at Lindsay and Alex’s Greenville SC Wedding Rehearsal Dinner at Thornblade Club .We love covering rehearsal dinners the night before the wedding. It gives us yet another chance to spend time with our couples before the wedding day and lets us get to know the wedding party and family as well. Plus the rehearsal dinner is always when the most heartfelt speeches and stories are told because of the more intimate environment which makes for some really great moments that should be captured. I highly recommend all coupes getting married look in to hiring a professional photographer for their rehearsal dinner. We say it al the time…these moments only happen once.

Please enjoy some of my favorite shots from this awesome rehearsal dinner!

This cake has to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen at a wedding event. Kathy and Co. really hit it out of the park as always with this Harry Potter themed cake for the couple. She is more than just a baker, she is an artist that always goes above and beyond the expectations and imagination of her couples. Bravo Kathy!

Two of my favorite places to work in one wedding! Needless to say I was beyond excited for Sarah and Alan’s Glassy Chapel Wedding Ceremony and Old Cigar Warehouse Reception! Oh and did I mention they are both Air Force Fighter Pilots! Yeah these two have an epic back story and they are both amazing people with amazing families. It should not come as a surprise that their wedding day was amazing as well. We lucked out with what has been the most rainy summer season I can remember and only got a little drizzle as we were leaving the Cliffs and for the leave that evening at Old Cigar Warehouse. There were so many epic moments to this day including one of my favs an Air Force saber arch for the ceremony leave! Its hard to put it all into words so without further ado..please enjoy some of my favorite moments of the day!

Katlyn and Erik’s wedding at the Loom was one of the most emotional events we have been to. You could literally feel the love in the room. The love the bride and groom had for each other, the love they had between them and their families and the love the guests had for these two, it was everywhere.  I usually don’t get choked up at weddings and I have to admit seeing the look on Erik’s face when he saw Katlyn for the first time walking down the aisle..I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house including mine. What an amazing day.

Please enjoy my favs from this awesome wedding!

Some weddings are emotional. Some weddings are a party. Some weddings are epic. And then there are those like Lindsay and Alex’s Zen Wedding Reception that are all of the above and then some.  We feel truly honored and blessed to have been chosen to be a part of this amazing day.  I have a hard time even putting into words how amazing this experience was for us. From the above and beyond hospitality of the families, to the awesome group of bridesmaids and groomsmen, the all star cast of vendors, to last but not least an amazing couple with an awesome love story, it really was an event that will rank in our all time favs for us.

It was hard to narrow it down to just a few so please enjoy 150+ of my favs from the day!

To say Katlyn’s Greenville Rock Quarry Bridal session was a great time would be an understatement. She is one of those girls that when she smiles it really does translate to her eyes giving her this great connection to the camera. As Tyra Banks says she “smizes”. (Yeah don’t judge, I am a guy that like to watch Top Model. ) Needless to say that makes it a lot of fun for us.  She was a blast to work with all day. From the moment we began it was magic. We started at the front of the Rock Quarry Garden and made our way around the immaculately landscaped location. I really don’t know what they do to maintain that garden but it is always green and vibrant. It truly is one of the best locations for bridal portraits in Greenville,SC.

We had a blast with Katlyn and it has been hard to wait to share these photos. She was a total rockstar, it it shows in the photos. Stay tuned for their amazing wedding day images, (coming later this week!) but until then please enjoy her amazing bridal portraits!

See what I mean about “smizing”!  I LOVE this shot! Totally magazine cover worthy!

Light and airy bridal portrait in the rock quarry garden in Greenville. Bride holding her veil on the stone bridge at the rock quarry in Greenville.

What a stunning dress! And that veil made for a lot of fun here and on her wedding day!

Bride looking at her flowers during her bridal session at the rock quarry garden. Bride looking back at the rock quarry garden. Bride holding her flowers behind her back. Bride looking over her flowers. Bride looking at her bouquet. Bride with her veil blowing in the wind.

One of my favorites things about a bridal session when some glowing golden hour sunlight catches the veil just right.

Bride holding her bouquet out.

Love her bouquet. It fit the vibe perfectly!

I love everything about this photo from the veil to the dress, to her expression. Pure magic!
