Taylor+Devin are two of the kindest people I’ve ever met.  Wes and I were SO lucky to be able to be a part of this couples wedding day.  Taylor was so calm and laid back all day long, seriously I don’t think anything could have taken her out of her cool and collected mood.  This was a day these two couldn’t wait to see and their anticipation had me equally excited to see the day finally come!  Thank you Taylor+ Devin for letting us tag along all day for your wedding day.  It was an honor to see the two of you promise forever in front of your friends and family. 2015-01-21_0001 2015-01-21_0002 2015-01-21_0003 2015-01-21_0004 2015-01-21_0005 2015-01-21_0006 2015-01-21_0007 2015-01-21_0008 2015-01-21_0009 2015-01-21_0010 2015-01-21_0011 2015-01-21_0012 2015-01-21_0013 2015-01-21_0014 2015-01-21_0015 2015-01-21_0016 2015-01-21_0017 2015-01-21_0018 2015-01-21_0019 2015-01-21_0020 2015-01-21_0021 2015-01-21_0022 2015-01-21_0023 2015-01-21_0024 2015-01-21_0025 2015-01-21_0026 2015-01-22_0001 2015-01-22_0002 2015-01-22_0003 2015-01-22_0004 2015-01-22_0005 2015-01-22_0006 2015-01-22_0007 2015-01-22_0008 2015-01-22_0009 2015-01-22_0010 2015-01-22_0011 2015-01-22_0012 2015-01-22_0013 2015-01-22_0014 2015-01-22_0015 2015-01-22_0016 2015-01-22_0017 2015-01-22_0018 2015-01-22_0019 2015-01-22_0020 2015-01-22_0021 2015-01-22_0022 2015-01-22_0023 2015-01-22_0024 2015-01-22_0025 2015-01-22_0026 2015-01-22_0027 2015-01-22_0028 2015-01-22_0029 2015-01-22_0030 2015-01-22_0031 2015-01-22_0033 2015-01-22_0034 2015-01-22_0035 2015-01-22_0036 2015-01-22_0037 2015-01-22_0038 2015-01-22_0039 2015-01-22_0040 2015-01-22_0041 2015-01-22_0042 2015-01-22_0043 2015-01-22_0044 2015-01-22_0045 2015-01-22_0046 2015-01-22_0047 2015-01-22_0048 2015-01-22_0049 2015-01-22_0050 2015-01-22_0051 2015-01-22_0052 2015-01-22_0053 2015-01-22_0054 2015-01-22_0055 2015-01-22_0056 2015-01-22_0057 2015-01-22_0058 2015-01-22_0059 2015-01-22_0060 2015-01-22_0061 2015-01-22_0062 2015-01-22_0063 2015-01-22_0064 2015-01-22_0065 2015-01-22_0066 2015-01-22_0067 2015-01-22_0068 2015-01-22_0069

Meet: Brandy+Daniel | Kalmia Gardens Engagement Session | Hartsville SC Wedding Photography

I am SO excited to be working with Brandy+Daniel.  Getting to know the two of them has been SO much fun, and Brandy’s son Jackson helps to make things even more cute and interesting!  When Daniel decided he was going to ask Brandy to marry him he knew he wanted to incorporate Jackson in some way.  Knowing there was NO way a kid his age would be able to keep a secret he also knew he had to be pretty sneaky in the way he went about it.  Over breakfast one morning Daniel popped the question and a little while later Jackson was dropped off at the house.  Daniel had thought about this and KNEW he had to get Brandy to hide so Jackson wouldn’t notice her ring.  Daniel and Jackson had a one-on-one moment where Daniel told Jackson his intentions and Jackson said he was totally fine with it.  The three were able to celebrate the good news together and Jackson will always know he had a part in getting these two together, forever.

I met Brandy, Daniel and Jackson at Kalmia Gardens on Monday for their engagement session and I am SO happy with what we got.  Can’t wait to shoot the wedding of these THREE in March!2015-01-22_0070 2015-01-22_0071 2015-01-22_0072 2015-01-22_0073 2015-01-22_0074 2015-01-22_0075 2015-01-22_0076 2015-01-22_0077 2015-01-22_0078 2015-01-22_0079 2015-01-22_0080 2015-01-22_0081 2015-01-22_0082 2015-01-22_0083 2015-01-22_0084 2015-01-22_0085 2015-01-22_0086 2015-01-22_0087 2015-01-22_0088

Lindsey+Will |Hartsville Country Club | Hartsville SC Wedding Photography and Cinematography

LIndsey+Will’s love for one another stretches for miles.  In the earliest days of their long distance romance Lindsey was content just to hear Will’s voice on the other end of the line.  It didn’t matter what he was saying, what sports team he was talking about, or what crazy thing had happened at work that day, It all sounded like the most wonderful love story being read to her from wherever his job would take him.

This love began as appreciation.  One would say to the other ” I appreciate you” as a sign of love and adoration.  A small gift that they gave to each other over and over that eventually grew into “I love you”.  It’s funny how that word- “love” encompasses so many other words.  Appreciation may have transitioned to LOVE but it’s still included in there for these two.  The look of love and appreciation that swept across Lindsey’s face, as she received her last gift as Will’s fiance, spoke volumes to that fact.  She appreciated the time he had taken to pick out the most beautiful necklace for his soon to be wife, and she loved that he had done it all with her on his mind and in his heart. Now as they start a new journey as husband and wife, in a new city and state we can know that their love and appreciation still stretches for miles.

Our life in instagram photos | morgan+wes | florence sc wedding photography and cinematography

I like to do these every once and a while as a reminder of the things we have to be thankful for.  Cultivating a lifestyle of thankfulness is of the utmost importance to me and what better way to do that then look back over all those great things that happened that make me feel the absolute MOST THANKFUL in the moment. Here’s what we’ve been up to in the past 3 or so months.instapost

Behind the Scenes | Morgan + Wes | Portrait Films PART ONE

Today I am so eager and excited to start sharing a little project we’ve been working hard on!  Wes and I decided it was about time that we did some films individually to give you a closer look at the behind the scenes process for both photo and cinema.  These videos are a look into our minds and hearts. See how we work, why we work, and all the stories that made us the storytellers we are today.  What makes us tick, how we cultivate a creative energy, and who we are when we don’t have cameras in our hands.  The first part of this series takes a look at How Wes approaches the song selection process for each and every one of the films we create and How I use my “hands on/diy” approach in every client experience.
