• Dustin + Brittani

He brings a sense of “calm” to her when they are in each other’s presence. I noticed it during their engagement session and it was ever so present on their wedding day. Dustin is Brittani’s best friend and soul mate! As the girls got ready, Britt sat in the stylist’s chair and with her hair up in pins and her makeup half done, she says “I just want to see him”.  That was her main concern. Not the dress, not her hair, not the million little details that she was sprinting around doing that morning… just him. It’s easy to understand why she loves him so much. Dustin is the sweetest country boy you could ever meet. He’s polite, gentle, patient and I’m pretty sure he could get away with anything with that smile of his!! As he turned around to see his bride


for the first time, his jaw dropped and her tears started flowing.  He loved everything… the dress, the hair, the makeup…. he loved it all! Brittani and Dustin celebrated with their family and friends at the Pavillion at Pepper Plantation near Charleston, SC. The moss covered trees and the warm sun made me wish that I didn’t live so far away from this beautiful place!! Can you imagine being a Charleston Wedding Photographer?! Gosh! It’s just a beautiful place!  Annamarie and I drove down on Friday just in time to see the sunset. Then we prepped and then spent the whole next day celebrating with Britt and Dustin and their families. It was wonderful and SO worth the many hours on the road. I walked away from their wedding feeling so blessed to have these new friends in my life. Brittani is a photographer herself and so that’s another reason I felt honored to be there! No pressure right?! :) I love shooting other photographer’s weddings because they already know how the day is going to go! However, I think Britt will agree that it feels MUCH different being on the other side of the camera! The two of them were amazing and I’m so excited to show you my many favorites! I can’t blog them ALL or else the blog would shut down but here are a few!!! Enjoy!!


Dustin and Brittani, thank you SO much for allowing Anna and I to be a part of your day!! I wish you years and years of happiness!!!!!! xoxo and Ps. A HUGE thanks to Annamarie for dealing with me for two days AND driving me home at 5am!!



Love the moss in the trees!  Perfect for details!
