Family Love- The Leggett's

Meet this sweet baby girl Vivian! So cute! We had a chance to play a couple of weeks ago at the family farm in Greensboro. I am going to keep it short and sweet since I am at the beach with the hubby and our friends from Colorado taking in the sun and doing some sessions on the beach. Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day!!!

{Olivia and Bentley} Greenville Wedding Photographer

Grateful. That is the only word that I can really think of to describe Bentley and Olivia's wedding this past Saturday. The amazing couple were grateful to their family and friends for the meaning they have in each of their lives, grateful to the Lord for all of their blessings, and grateful for each other and the love they share. They were grateful for the amazing job everyone did so that they could have a wonderful day, grateful for so many guests coming all the way from Florida- where Olivia and Bentley met at FSU. The list goes on... Joe and I were just grateful to be a part of it all.

The ceremony and pictures started at Olivia's parents home, and it was a perfectly intimate backyard wedding. There really wasn't a dry eye in the place when it was all said and done. After the ceremony, they met more guests at the Greenville Country Club to celebrate...and I have never seen so many people have so much fun! Enjoy this sneak peak of their photos and don't forget to click on the slideshow at the bottom to see lots more!

Bridals: Olivia

Yesterday, quite simply, was magical. I am still trying to put into words Olivia and Bentley's wedding day, but for now her bridals will just have to do.

Olivia studied dance in college, and I just love the personal touch of some of the photos of her with her pointe shoes- just one of a hundred pairs she wore out over the years. We started, as always with some more traditional shots.....


True story: while at FSU, one summer Olivia worked at Disney World as a fairy princess. I think it's obvious in this photo how she got the job;)


this photo melts me


a necklace Bentley made her out of shells he found. Yes, they are that sweet, and yes it is amazing.



some fun dance shots to end on- ballet is in this girls blood

Chloia Shea turns 1!!

We have been watching her grow here andhere over the past year....and this pretty little lady celebrated her first birthday the day of our photo shoot! You would have thought this would make her really happy. That and the fact that we brought her sweets, but missing a nap will mess up a good plan in a heartbeat! This little sweetie did finally perk up a bit with the help of her dad Mike- singing songs, doing acrobatics, and lots of other funny things that I couldn't see because he was hiding behind the camera. I am pretty sure he was the one that needed a nap afterwards! 'm happy to celebrate with Andrea and Mike here on the blog. Happy Birthday Chloia Shea!


snapped this one while Mike wasn't looking.

April & Randy- True Love

I absolutely LOVE these two! They radiate love from their pores for each other. They met when April was giving Randy a to do list to finish up her new townhouse that she had recently bought. He works with the builders and was finishing up the punch list, which I think was just a littttle long;) She took the first step when she offered him dinner to repay his hard work. You go girl! Can't wait for your wedding at the Depot!

Bridals: Laura

This past weekend was Jeremy and Laura's wedding day! So pumped to finally get Laura's bridal pics up here! When I saw a picture of her dress- I knew we had to do something "regal" for at least a couple of the shots. I think we nailed it with this first one. Love these....


something fun to end with! What you don't see is Joe throwing the veil up and then running away as fast as he could. That's right, I just gave away the big secret:)
