Lindsey and I first met during our time studying Early Childhood Education at the University of South Carolina. I was so excited when she asked me about photographing her wedding.

A summer wedding in the pavilion. When I photographed Carrie and Cam’s engagement photos back in December of 2020, I quickly learned they were Rock Hill celebrities. Every corner we turned on the main street, someone was calling their name and waving them down to say hello. You could feel the love the community had […]

It’s no secret by now that the pandemic has changed the game for weddings. Jenny and Jeff were initially supposed to get married in the summer of 2020.
