Lauren and Will were married March 27th, 2010 on the bluffs of the always beautiful Wachesaw Plantation. Lauren is a a perfect example of a modern southern bride. What I loved the most about Lauren was her authenticity. Much like myself, with Lauren.. what you see is what you get. Her big smile and out going spirit carried through the entire vibe of the wedding. Her all white color pallette was refreshing yet bold and sophisticated. Set against the backdrop of the Waccamaw River, it was quite literally “picture perfect”… a little chilly, but perfect none the less. Lauren’s goal was clear from the beginning.. PARTY!!! I think these images whole heatedly tell the story of just what a great day it was. Lauren looked AMAZING! Johnny with Johnny Cosmetics did an incredible job styling all of the ladies. Barry West and his team from Blossoms Events created the beautiful arrangements and Lauren’s sweet scented all white garden rose bouquet. And the number one detail of the day… well if you can’t see the underlying them of the wedding, email me and I’ll clue you in.
As a photographer, I am constantly on the lookout for inspiration. It’s a key element in the creative process. Even just this past week I was longing for a trip to the museum or just a few hours with a stack of fashion mags and a hot tea. June is a sedulous month. At times I literally feel like I’m running a marathon. Much like running a marathon I must pace myself, stay focused, and breathe. So with lack of time to over indulge in things of inspiration, I came to a realization as I sat with my computer and pushed through to get this wedding posted. In as much as I need outside inspiration, my inspiration comes from my brides and their vision and the interpretation of that vision by the artists they choose. From Johnny to Barry to the beautiful woodwind quartet… the Waccamaw River, the pearls Lauren had made just for the day… all of these things inspired me through the day. I always hear from clients and potential clients, “I want my wedding photos to look different and unique.” Here’s my response: If you want your wedding photos to look unique and different and a reflection of YOU… then make sure your wedding is unique and different and a reflection of YOU! And from there I will do everything I can to capture not only the napkins and the shoes, but the spirit of YOU and your LOVE for each other. So with that I give you Lauren and Will! ENJOY!!!
