Columbia Design League throws an amazing event every year called Runaway Runway. Local designers submit fashion created entirely from recycled materials. This year, the ninth year of this showcase of creativity, I got to capture a few photos behind the scenes and during the main event. So many of these designers blew me away with their vision and execution.
Our first session, their engagement session, was cold and rainy. It was not ideal weather, but they toughed it out and trusted me to create something snuggly and warm. Her bridal portrait session was so hot, the glue in her bouquet melted. Melted! But again, Cheyenne toughed it out and showed off her best Top Model looks. So tough, so sassy, so beautiful. I've loved every minute of working with her, and cannot wait to share this perfect fall wedding soon!
Maggie has been a close friend since my first semester of college. To be able to capture the moments of this joyful season has been a wonderful experience. Her strong personality is so fun, you can't help but laugh with her all the time. Now she is married! Now she & Justin get to make each other laugh every day. I'm so thankful to walk with her in this journey & very honored that she asked me to create these portraits.
Casey's bridals were an absolute fairytale. We spent a very warm evening exploring the Woodburn house where she would say "I do" a few short weeks later. Woodburn house is a historic house in upstate South Carolina that operates as a museum during the week. The architecture, the preserved details inside, the wild woods outside all were open to us for some truly gorgeous portraits.
