Meet Ellen. Isn't she just absolutely lovely!? Today on my blog, I want to highlight what I consider a "traditional" bridal session. On the wedding day, I pride myself in being able to capture traditional images and photojournalist  style images. With my photography assistants by my side we are able to fully capture the day. 

For Ellen's bridal portrait, she opted for a very traditional session. At the very end of the session, we added in some super fun, candid shots.  But for the blog, I want to focus on traditional.
The bride, the setting, the wedding; it was all  southern sophistication at it's finest. Worthy to grace the pages of Southern Living Magazine in a snap. 

                Her portraits were taken at her mother in law's home on the Charleston harbor.

We ended our session on The Citadel campus. 
(Be still my heart! Because I love this campus especially when accompanied by a beautiful bride!)

Your Style

 One of my favorite things about wedding photography is bridal portrait day. I love meeting with brides, learning what they like and customizing the sessions to fit “their style.”  

Vintage, classic, candid, timeless, traditional, fun, formal... or little of everything! We work together to select locations and portrait ideas. It's crazy fun!

Showing off a bride’s personality through portraiture  really is one of my favorite things! 

This beautiful bride loved everything elegant and rustic! 
More styles to come...
 I am so very blessed to call this my "job."

Happiness is contagious!
 This was such a sweet, fun family! We took several sets in different spots, but this set I just cannot get enough of! We all started laughing... and had a hard time stopping!

 Are you wondering what was causing this uncontrolled laughter? I am sad to say it was not me. 
Their mom and dad were behind me causing the stir. SO FUN!

Extended family sessions are the best!
