Charleston Wedding Photographers – Hayley and Nick’s Citadel Wedding

Hayley and I met the summer between 5th and 6th grade at church camp. We instantly became best friends.  Hayley lived in Helena and I was from Fayetteville, so naturally we were devastated, as only pre-teen girls can be, when we had to part ways at the end of camp. When I showed up to the first day of 6th grade, I was shocked and so excited to see her sitting in my classroom. We spent the rest of our school days together, from 6th grade all the way through highschool. We lived together in college and joined the same sorority. After a year at the UofA, Hayley decided to follow her heart and move to Charleston to pursue a degree and career in the culinary arts. Hayley is one of those friends that no matter how long we are apart or how far away we live from eachother, it feels as tho nothing has changed when we're together. She has always been a very special person to me and I was so honored when she asked me to fly out to document her Charleston destination wedding. The wedding was beautiful and full of love and laughter. Hayley and Nick now live...

Reception details and party fun will be in the next post! ...

Little Rock Portrait Photographer – The Before and After

One of my favorite parts about shooting glamour and boudoir sessions are the 'before and afters.' I love seeing how people react when they flip through one of my before and after albums in the studio, and I love hearing clients tell friends about how they should check out my website to see the makeovers. The thing I don't love hearing is that many people assume that my work is VERY photoshopped because the transformation is, so, well, transformative. The truth is that most of the magic that happens at my studio is created in the makeup chair and right in front of my lens. Let me explain. For starters, almost none of my clients walk around looking like their 'before' shot. Who goes to the office on a Tuesday with no makeup, wearing sweat pants with their hair pulled back in a ponytail? No one. Second, who has their hair and makeup professionally done before work on a Thursday? No one. Well, unless you're a Kardashian. BUT that's how my clients arrive and leave my studio, and that's how they're photographed, and that's what you see in my before and afters. Before I begin every session, the stylist and I talk...
