Refresh {greenville, sc event photography}

greenville sc event photography
My church hosts a ladies retreat every other year which is a whole lot of fun. However, it’s a long time between retreats and someone had the genius idea of having a quarterly ladies night out. Rebecca, one of the organizers as well as our lovely emcee pictured above, asked me to come take photos of the event and I was more than happy to oblige. After all, church fun + photography=WIN.

We started out with a giveaway and my friend Nicole won!

And then two audience members were chosen to play two rounds of “Minute to Win It.” They played Chocolate Unicorn and Junk in the Trunk. They were such good sports and it was so much fun to watch!

This is our lovely all-girl band! We’re blessed to have such a talented bunch of musicians at North Hills and these ladies did a wonderful job leading us in worship.

For our first quarterly meeting, Heather taught. “Ladies in Waiting–What does waiting for Jesus, our Bridegroom’s return have to do with my day today? Everything!”

It was a popular event and were were too crowded for the room in which we met–I, along with several others, sat on the floor during Heather’s teaching time! But that was a great thing, because it meant that so many women were able to come and be blessed with worship time, teaching, and fellowship with each other.

Extraordinary Women Conference {greenville, sc event photographer}

greenville sc concert photography
I had the opportunity to go to the Extraordinary Women Conference with my friend Alison Storm, the features editor of Belle Magazine. Michael O’Brien, above, led worship songs on Saturday.

This woman came to speak a few minutes for Compassion International, one of the sponsors of the conference. She was sponsored when she was a child and grew up to know the Lord. She’s now going to college in America and hoping to return home one day and witness there.

We got to hear several women give wonderful talks: Jennifer Rothschild, Lysa TerKeurst, and the very funny Chonda Pierce.

After Lysa TerKeurst’s talk, there was a very moving altar call.

The Chick-fil-a cows made an appearance before lunch and gave away some free t-shirts. I got hit with one while I was taking photos! (I handed it off to the person behind me…didn’t think a free t-shirt would fit me.)

Candace Cameron Bure (you might remember her as DJ Tanner!) gave a wonderful talk at the conference. I LOVED hearing her testimony and I’m pretty sure I may have teared up once or twice. And I realized, after looking at the details for other conferences, we were pretty lucky to see her. Candace isn’t scheduled to speak at the EWomen conference in the other cities!

We stood in quite the line to see the lovely Candace. Our friend Rebecca bought her latest book, Reshaping it All, and Ali wanted her to have a couple copies of of the issue of Belle in which Candace was featured.

Bryan & Amanda {greenville, sc wedding photographer}

So, if you read my other blog, you may remember that I mentioned, ages ago, that someone wanted me to shoot her wedding. I thought she was crazy. I wasn’t a photographer. Who on earth would ask little ol’ me to take their pictures? After warning her, quite fully, what she was getting herself into, I agreed. She also planted a seed in my little ol’ head and made me want to be a photographer. Now, almost a year a later, I’m doing something I truly love AND I was blessed to be able to shoot a wedding for my friend.

Bryan and Amanda had originally planned on having a courthouse wedding but ended up going with a wedding in the park!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day! In South Carolina, March is hit or miss. It could be freezing outside, or it could be in the 70s. We got lucky and it was in the 70s for Amanda’s wedding!

Notice Bryan’s green tie? Well, they didn’t get married on just ANY day in March. It was St. Patrick’s day!

Amanda did her own flowers. Aren’t they beautiful?

The photo on the right was the first photo I posted to Facebook after the wedding. It was such a small wedding–family only–that I knew friends were just dieing to get a sneak peak!

Bryan & Amanda are both so good looking! I’m pretty sure Amanda could be a model.

I don’t know if you noticed Amanda’s teeny bump. But I call the photo on the right, “barefoot and pregnant!”

Dillon & Tori {clemson, sc couples photography}

Connecting with seasoned photographers isn’t always the easiest thing for a JSO (just starting out) like myself. However, Davey Morgan, a new friend of mine is super nice. He’s very happy to share with you some of his secrets–so, well, I guess they aren’t secrets–and he’s invited me to do a few photo sessions with him. And not just to be a walking light stand, either, I was able to bring my camera and take photos to add to my own portfolio!

Well, I’m super glad that Davey invited me to this photo session with Dillon and Tori. They were so photogenic and the location was gorgeous!

This is probably one of my favorite shots ever! See, I had to stay out of Davey’s way, but also be creative enough to get good shots from my location. If I wasn’t the second shooter, I probably wouldn’t have thought to stand where I did.

Dillon and Tori are a long distance couple. He goes to school in Florida and she goes to Clemson! But they make it work by taking frequent trips to visit each other. Dillon came up to SC for spring break.

This shot happened while Davey was taking this shot. Again, another shot that I might not have gotten if I was there by myself. I definitely learned to be creative a look for shots that would be unique–like this one!

This photo session was Tori’s present to Dillion for their 2-year anniversary!

We went to the South Carolina Botanical Gardens in Clemson for the photo session. It’s such a beautiful location!
