Emily + Steve |Downtown Conway, SC Engagement Session

I knew as soon as I met Steve & Emily at a local coffee shop that I wanted to capture their  wedding. Small and intimate ceremonies with just the closest friends and family are my favorite because at the end of the day I feel like I’ve become one of the gang.

They both said they love the Downtown Conway area, and I mean what’s not to love. There is something very special about this little neck of the woods. The riverwalk is one of my most favorite places to be in the world. The downtown area has a southern charm that just can’t be found anywhere else. I know I live here so I am bias, but its why I live here.

Steve has twin boys, so we turned this into a family affair. Caleb & Cody are the sweetest and I can’t wait to challenge them to a hot cocoa drinking contest on the wedding. I think I can take them. LOL  As we strolled through Conway talking about the wedding and finding amazing light, this little family became some of my favorite people. Now I am even more excited about the wedding. Harrison Family -20Harrison Family -31Harrison Family -34Harrison Family -36Harrison Family -41Harrison Family -43Harrison Family -45Harrison Family -52Harrison Family -58Harrison Family -83Harrison Family -84Harrison Family -86Harrison Family -98Harrison Family -107Harrison Family -110Harrison Family -113Harrison Family -121Harrison Family -131Harrison Family -132Harrison Family -140Harrison Family -144Harrison Family -149Harrison Family -150Harrison Family -156

One of the hardest things as a photographer is waiting to show off  images that you love. Michelle is so laid back and beautiful. I have been chomping at the bit to get these out into the world. We had so much fun walking around downtown and talking wedding things.

Jonathan + Michelle {e-session}

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

Greg + Sheryl {engagement}

Its only 32 days until this couple gets married and I am over the moon happy for them. Greg and Sheryl are such a laid back couple, that when it rained all day of their session we shot anyway. I think they were super happy to be snuggled under that umbrella. He is from this area so shooting in downtown Conway was a special idea, and the ideal backdrop for their engagement pictures.

“You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
― Bob Marley
