It’s no secret I love my native state, South Carolina.  But even more, I love the Lowcountry. Oaks, marsh, salty air, and the smell of plough (pluff) mud.  I would enjoy candles scented like plough mud, but I’m probably the only one.

Photographing this Charleston wedding for some dear friends of ours was a j-o-y.  The groom was my husband’s best man, and the chapel was the same chapel we got married in, at the school they graduated from. It did my heart good on many levels.

Congrats, Chad & Meagan! This is just a teaser.
