The Irwin Family | Waterfront Park | Charleston, South Carolina

You know when you have that one friend that you can always pick back up where you left off? Well that’s Christine. See, while I don’t get to see the Irwin’s as much as I would like… they do make the time to vacation on Kiawah Island each summer - so we always make time to see each other and snap a few pictures.

Christine and I met in college at Appalachian State — where we were both Delta Zeta’s. Since then, we’ve shared many laughs, lots of dancing, her marriage to Nick, and the arrival of baby Caroline — who is not so much of a baby now!

It was a hot summer day, so we started early in the morning at Waterfront Park in downtown Charleston. Caroline donned her new Lilly swimsuit and splashed and squealed around in all the fountains (and we all wished we could’ve joined her!)

Emily & Nick | The Cottages on Charleston Harbor | Charleston, South Carolina

Emily and Nick first met while they were both studying at the College of Charleston (and bonded over a mutual love of all things pistachio) - after losing touch for a couple of years, their paths crossed again at a music festival and they fell in love while dating long distance (for three years… phew!)

Nick proposed in California - so their wedding day drew from a beachy, outdoors loving style. Also, check out their adorable puppy!

Molly & Jay | Lowndes Grove | Charleston, South Carolina

Lowndes Grove is hands down one of my favorite wedding venues in Charleston, and it’s pretty obvious why.

Molly and Jay threw an amazing party (and perfectly timed, too - I mean, look at that ceremony light!!) this was pretty much the perfect wedding to shoot, and hardly felt like actually working!
