It was absolutely freezing the morning of Hannah’s session. She looked great in her purple romper and black leather jacket but I have to admit, I was a little worried she would freeze. We talked to her about her upcoming cruise and I think that did the trick! Even though everyone around her was shivering, Hannah fought through it and her images are stunning. We saved the cozy sweater outfit for last which made for a much warmer (and much more comfortable) Hannah. I love how the sweater and pine tree make the glitter look like snow. You did awesome Hannah! Thanks for being such a trooper and braving the cold with us!
Grace has an infectious laugh that could turn any frown upside down. We hit it off chatting with her during hair and makeup and discussed locations. Each outfit was perfect for the location and even though we lost each other for a minute, the afternoon was smooth sailing! Doesn’t she look amazing!?!
When we first met Andrea & Ashley, we had no idea how amazing their story was. Over dinner one night, they told us how they met and it was Andrea’s idea to use their engagement pictures to honor the story of how they met, how he proposed and who they are as a couple. And, you can see here how beautiful they turned out. To say, as photographers, we were loving it is a complete understatement. We knew approaching their wedding, it would be just as amazing. Her dress was the perfect, understated & classic yet completely stunning. The gold accessories were the perfect compliment. The shoes… oh my gosh, the shoes – gorgeous. Their first look truly resembled something out of a fairytale, which was ironic because earlier the Matron of honor, her sister, had given Andrea a handkerchief that said in part…. “Thank you for a magical history and for reminding me that dreams still come true.” This day was nothing short of just that – magical.
Thank Andrea & Ashley for allowing us to be just a small party in your wonderful story. We wish you many, many years of love and happiness!

Connor has such a laid back and fun personality it’s easy to see why she is Greenville High School’s homecoming queen. When Connor pulled in her Grandpa’s fully restored pickup truck I knew this was going to be awesome. She looks amazing in all of her images but those are my favorite! The dress was perfect and her shoes even matched the truck! Not to mention that girl can really pull off a crown. Congratulations Connor!
You may recognize this gorgeous girl from an earlier post this summer. Julie’s Supermodel Session was featured in a leading photography blog, Senior Style Guide. We had an early start at 7 am but it was so worth it! While inside the stadium we were all taken by surprise when none other than YADIER MOLINA nonchalantly jogged by. None of us were paying any attention to the joggers until Amy began muttering and pointing. Finally, we looked at the joggers and couldn’t believe it! We probably looked ridiculous to anyone else watching but we were all so excited! After the stadium Julie changed into her gorgeous (and rather large) pink dress. We got plenty of confused looks walking down the sidewalk and Julie even got a few compliments from a the ladies admiring her dress! The strong gusts of wind made for a struggle at times and eventually we lost our balloons but luckily we had all the shots we needed! Julie’s session was an all day affair and we couldn’t have asked for better results! Everything was perfect down to the the picturesque sunset. Thank you so much Julie for trusting our crazy ideas and being so sweet!
We were so thrilled when Lorrie called us to photograph them for the last time as a family of 3. Austin had a blast wondering through the field holding dad’s hand. We were even able to catch him saying his favorite phrase “I dunno!” He is such a ham! Austin is going to be such a good big brother and we can’t wait to meet baby number 2!
How cute are these kiddos!? I had a great time getting to know the Pruitt kids and love how their images turned out. Their storyboards are going to look great hanging in their rooms!!
Anthony was totally prepared for his session. From the location to what he wanted in the pictures, he was a man with a plan! We went to Hidden Lake Winery where he works and found a log pile that turned out to be really cool! Anthony also wanted to include two of his favorite things, his four wheeler and car. He even stayed up late in the garage to make sure the car was spotless. Now thats what I like to hear :) Awesome job Anthony!
We spent a beautiful Saturday getting to know a little bit about Danielle through her session. Not so much through the exchange of words, but locations and outfits. We started at the dance studio she has been attending since she was a little girl. She brought in hangers of tulle, sequins, and shiny fabrics making up the dance costumes she had worn throughout the years. When we asked her about the ballerina prints on the wall, she told us she wanted to include them in her pictures because they’ve been there ever since she started dancing. Her FFA jacket and 4H officer outfit are proof of her handwork and accomplishments in both organizations. Congratulations Danielle!
Renee is such a beautiful girl and I couldn’t wait for her City Experience. I’m so glad she opted for a more natural look for her hair and makeup and added a pop of color on her lips in a few. Renee looked gorgeous! As soon as I saw the red dress and leather jacket I knew just the spot downtown. Her style is spot on and she is definitely not afraid of print. You go girl!
