We watched the forecast for days leading up to the wedding. Two days out, there was 30% chance of rain during portraits… then the day before, a 90% chance. Claudia had gone through the trouble of getting a permit for the memorial in DC, but if it was raining, none of that would matter… so […]

  • Meredith Sledge - HOLY COW! This wedding is AMAZING and you captured it perfectly! WOW!ReplyCancel

I LOVE photographing perfume bottles. Maybe it’s because I remember being so fascinated with the delicate bottle of Tea Rose in my mom’s bathroom growing up- I snuck spritzes of that scent more times than she probably realized (sorry, Mom!). But until recently, my problem was that I forgot to ask my brides for their signature […]

  • Jean - I love perfume bottles, too. Beautiful photos here! Love you!💕ReplyCancel

  • Karen Field aka Mom - My favorite thing is Coco Mademoiselle, too! I like seeing the pretty bottles into the photos. Great idea to stick them in the brides’ shoe boxes!ReplyCancel

Well, last week was AWESOME. We started off in Charleston and then drove the 40 minutes or so to Kiawah for Mark & Meredith’s engagement session. And normally, I don’t really care what kind of car we’re driving, but when the rental company asks if you want to upgrade the blah Chevy you initially reserved […]

  • Karen Field aka Mom - I’m so glad you are enjoying your membership at Stone Tower Winery! Charleston and Kiawah sound delightful!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Loved the red convertible! We ‘ve watched some of the Olympics. Beautiful photo!ReplyCancel

It’s kind of funny- I realized recently that my demeanor during certain parts of a wedding day is completely at odds with who I am as a person. And what I mean by that is in every day life, I don’t mind being the center of attention. It’s actually why I love public speaking so […]

  • Karen Field aka Mom - I love your philosophy of not wanting to get disraction from the win event. This is, after all, a sacred coming together of two lives in committment to each other.ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Amen to what your mom said. Love that you have that respect for the church,ReplyCancel

Well wouldja look at that? It’s Monday again! And I’m having a serious case of dejá vu. I’m sitting in City Lights Coffee in Charleston, SC typing up a blog post & newsletter, which is exactly how I spent another Monday back in March when I was here for our girls’ week! We’ve been traveling […]

  • Dixie - I tore through HP&TCC (I can do that, right?) yesterday, too! I’m a little scared to say this online, but it wasn’t all that I imagined. I don’t want to go in to too much detail just here, but I sure will talk about it in emails if that’s an option! ha.

    Also, enjoy Charleston! It’s one of my favorite cities!ReplyCancel

  • Karen Field aka Mom - I’ve longed to go to Charleston for awhile and your photo just makes me want to to go there now, Have fun there and at Kiawah. You know, your Aunt Terry Lynn is there now former the week.ReplyCancel

  • Jaqueline Faria - I finished Harry Potter too!!! Read it in like half a day. My grandma use to say that I didn’t read books I swallowed them. Have to admit that I was slightly disappointed though. I feel awful for saying that but…ReplyCancel

  • Emilia Jane - Holy shit Abby that header image! WHAT A DREAM.ReplyCancel
