Charlotte Family Photographer : Glencairn Garden | Rock Hill, South Carolina

I have had the pleasure of capturing the Ligon family for many years now. For this session, we happened to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary, so we incorporated some cute props to show the love that Carlton & Ashley still share all these years later. 10 years down, and two beautiful kids later, their love still remains.

We did their session at Glencairn Garden in Rock Hill, South Carolina. What you can’t see in these photos is how HOT it was that day. We were all dripping sweat after only a few minutes of getting started. But they handled it like champs, even the kids! Enjoy some highlights from their session…

Southern Wedding with Vintage Charm : Charlotte NC Wedding Photographer | Rock Hill, SC

styledweddingshoot-1-100

Today’s blog post is a Southern styled wedding shoot I photographed earlier this year. The planner & designer for this shoot (Ashley with Magnolia Events) was inspired by photographs of her grandmother’s wedding day, which are displayed in her office. “Looking at these photos made me wonder what my grandmother’s wedding might look like today,” she said.

As you can see below, this elegant southern wedding shoot was a perfect balance of classic-southern with a contemporary, romantic flair. In the South, there are so many special details that can be incorporated into a wedding, and many of them translate through generations. The shoot took place at a Southern estate – Hutchison Estate at Arrowhead Dairy Farm – and the design incorporated many traditions of the South, including a Bible bouquet, vintage tins which served as flower vases, toile, homemade moon pies, bottled Coca-Cola, cake pulls, lace and silhouettes. Lush with vibrant flowers, this design is perfect for any bride who wants to have a charming southern wedding with a contemporary twist.

I absolutely loved this team of vendors and am thrilled with the way everything turned out. Find all vendor information and web links at the bottom of this post. Enjoy a peek!

Glencairn Garden : Rock Hill, SC | Wilber & Dosch Family Photos

I’m ashamed to say that tomorrow will make 2 months since I’ve blogged. Thankfully, I have been super busy since my last post with tons of sessions with old & new clients, as well as keeping myself occupied with the kids’ schooling and sports. Today was their last day, and we are now hitting our summer break full force! This should allow for a lot more time of sharing lovely images of my awesome clients and their families! Enjoy some of my favorites from a 2014 Fall session of the Wilber & Dosch families.

Steltzner Family : Rock Hill Family Photographer | Rock Hill, SC

I’ve done a few sessions now with this wonderful family. Liz is a fellow photographer in the area, and has found it to be easier to have someone else capture her boys, rather than add another task to her already busy schedule! I, of course, am thankful for that. 😉 Enjoy just a few of my favorites from their session…
