Maddie + Austin. These two are SO fun and their love and happiness with each other beyond evident. I couldn’t count how many times “I love you” was said if I had to. Since they love the highlands so much and it holds so many memories for them, it only made sense that they would […]

Since Olivia and Graham were coming up from Georgia, I knew their session couldn’t be just anywhere. It needed to be somewhere unique – somewhere worth hours in the car for. I had never been to this SC waterfall and was shocked at how easily accessible (and remote) it was. We basically had the whole […]
On a random weekday, my brain decided that it wanted to conceptualize a shoot that was on the edge of an old school feel. I reached out to a friend who has an old cabin and from there, planned a session with Catherine and Joe. I wanted this shoot to display an easy, simple kind […]
