Happy Birthday, Grandma!

I called grandma on my way home and the excitement in her voice and the, "Hi sweetheart!" brought a huge smile to my face.  Happy birthday, Grandma!!!

The closest I've ever lived to my mom's parents was when my brother and I were way younger, so I don't really remember much of that time.  I've loved my grandparents my entire life, but it wasn't until college, really, that I started to realize just how precious they are!  When mom and grandma came down for my show in 2010, grandma stayed with me and mom stayed with a friend.  It's the first time in a really long time that we've had that kind of time together, just the two of us.  And oh how I love this lady!

She's strong, she's resilient, the term "A.D.D" is scared of her, and she loves like no other.  I think I know how old she is, but Lord knows I'm not going to take a stab at it on the world wide web!  I just love her to pieces and I just wanted to give her a little blog love today and share these two photos from the wedding that Jana and Kim took.  She was representing the grandparents that day as she was the only one able to make it.

Love you, grandma!

Engaged | Davis & Matt

He pursued her for a year.  And it wasn't that he wasn't a nice guy, she just wasn't interested.  But they continued to get to know each other and one day, her heart changed.  And even though they were now dating, Matt didn't stop pursuing Davis.  Each month, on the day they became official, Matt would surprise her with flowers on her desk in class, or do something special that she wasn't expecting.

So, when he took her to the Botanical Gardens on one of these days, she thought nothing other than, "This is so Matthew!" Even when they reached the gazebo that was decorated in pictures of them and daisies outlining a rose petal filled heart, she just thought it was "Matthew being sweet Matthew."  It wasn't until he started telling her how much he loved her and got down on one knee that she realized this was more than he'd ever done before.

You two are so special and so beautiful, inside and out.  I am so honored and blessed that I get to capture the beginning of your forever together this June as you become man and wife.  Matt, just promise me that you will never stop pursuing Davis... it may be extra work as time goes on, but it's so incredibly worth it!

These two like to laugh.  A lot.

You guys are amazing.

Love. Seriously. I love it.

Ah!  You two are so stinking adorable.

Favorite. For sure.

Davis, you are so so beautiful.

Matt - you totally rocked these! I don't know what you were worried about!

Matt completely and utterly adores Davis.

Hello gorgeous bling!!

Nicely done, Matt.  Nicely done.

Ah!  Again!  Y'all are fabulous.

Guys, my camera loves you. As do I.
Can't wait for June!!

Pretty in Pink

I've been waiting for five years to meet these girls.  Dayna and I were friends and roommates (for a semester) in college and even though she and her husband only live in North Carolina (count it, ONE state away), we haven't been able to meet up until just recently.  In fact, other than the two of them coming to our wedding (minus the girls), I don't know that I've seen them since THEIR wedding!  Oh, it's sad.  I know.  And we've been saying for years that we need to get together.  Well, the stars finally aligned and it worked out for us to meet up for a mini-session at Furman, where Maggie would be a part of the opera over the weekend!

Dayna, thank you SO much for being your wonderful self and contacting me to hang out for a bit and take photos of your beautiful and super fun girls.  I hate that Maggie had broken her toe and that Nora wasn't feeling well, but I love that you took the chance and decided to capture life "as is" at this moment in time.

Love you guys... I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites!

In case you can't tell, Maggie is a performer for sure!

Even with a runny nose and watery eyes, Nora was a trooper... and oh so adorable!

Dayna, my friend, you are beautiful... as is your family!

I'm a Greenville, SC based wedding and portrait destination photographer who loves to be behind the lens. I look forward to hearing what you think about the posts and images as I work with amazing people to capture life and give them images they love.
