Chinqua Penn Plantation Wedding

Chinqua Penn Plantation Wedding

Weddings

Here’s Julie & Wayne who were married at the historic Chinqua Penn Plantation in North Carolina. Wayne is the only guy ever to call a timeout during an engagement session to grab a beer. They lived in Alabama when I met them and have recently moved to Tennessee. I’ve been to Tennessee twice in the last month and wished I had time to stop and see them.

Julie actually bought me a custom hanger after I met them in Charleston for their engagement session. One of the few things I complain about at weddings is the dress hangers people use. It’s usually one detail that is overlooked. The hanger she bought me ended up only being able to support a small amount of weight, though, so I never got to use it.

Here is Wayne’s dad who helped restore the 54 Chevy Bel Air for the wedding. You may notice the car is wet too. We actually ended up battling the rain during a portion of the wedding. A battle we won, too!

Probably my favorite photo from the day.

That’s Julie’s brother about to walk her down the aisle. Her father passed away 6+ years ago but was able to give the car to Julie on her 16th birthday.

Carly & Caleb Lincolnton GA Wedding

Weddings

Check out Carly and Caleb’s wedding. I’m not sure if I mentioned in the bridal photos that I was attacked by a goose while shooting. Lost three fingers in the accident! Carly informed me that Mr. Goose was eaten by a coyote a while back. I really didn’t care too much for the goose at the time but now I do feel a little sorry for the animal. All jokes aside, Carly had a beautiful wedding. I really enjoyed getting to know their families. They were incredible people that put on a really nice wedding. It was definitely the biggest wedding I’ve ever shot. They filled up all the seats and there was still about 200 people waiting in line. The wedding had a little of everything including a classic truck. I’m always a sucker for vintage cars!

camping

So this blog entry has been sitting in my draft folder for a while now. I was actually going to blog about what I had been up to recently but it never quite happened. This shot was of me camping on my grandfather’s property during the fall of last year. I was actually photographing the stars when i got this by accident. I never really slept much that night. I just kept thinking about my grandfather Ernest and his brother Hasty farming that land year after year while raising my mother and all her sisters. About two weeks ago I had a canvas printed of my grandfather’s tractor that I took several years ago as I was getting into photography. Just figured I’d share….

Boone Hall Plantation SC Wedding

Weddings

Here’s a wedding from the spring from the historic Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, SC. You might remember Megan & Breck from their engagement or maybe her bridal session. These guys are actually moving to Texas soon, which is really a bummer. I really enjoyed getting to know them and everyone that I have met through them. Breck also has some of the coolest man toys on the planet. I expect a big going away party and an invitation!
