Old Sheldon Church | These gorgeous old ruins were once known as Prince Williams’s Parrish Church. The traditional understanding is that the original structure was burned by the British in 1779 during the Revolutionary War, rebuilt in 1826 as Sheldon Church, and then burned again in 1865 during the Civil War by General Sherman marching from Georgia into South Carolina.
The church, listed among the National Historic Landmarks of South Carolina, lies among majestic oak tress covered in Spanish moss in the beautiful quiet outskirts of Beaufort County.


I have wanted to photograph the Old Sheldon Church Ruins for a very long time so I was absolutely THRILLED to have the opportunity to shoot this bridal portrait session there! *insert pitter-patter of my heart here*



Natasha Marie | Imagine a stunning smile, a beautiful personality, an elegant gown, a bouquet of fresh flowers…

Yep, there she is!  Natasha was an absolute joy to photograph. Her happiness, easy spirit, and sweet heart made it so easy to fall in love with her pictures right away! She was beautiful in her gown, and I know her hubby-to-be will consider himself the luckiest man alive.



Harley Davidson | As gorgeous as she was in her white gown and sweet florals, Natasha also has and adventurous side and wanted to create some fun, moody images as well! Of course, I am always up for a creative challenge so we decided to dress her in black, braid her hair, and bring in a Harley for some awesome photos! Don’t tell anyone, but these might be my favorites!


If you love this whimsical, moody style, be sure to check out my Midsummer Night’s Dream shoot!  It was amazing!
