This beautiful wedding at a private home in Pawleys Island was a great way to start my busy spring season. A couple of weeks before the wedding I met the bride at her wedding location for some portraits. The marsh boardwalks in Pawleys are always a beautiful place for pictures. I always love getting to do bridal or engagement pictures before a wedding to get to know a client and to make sure they like my style. This bride seemed really happy so I figured she would like the wedding pictures and she really did. I don’t think she would mind me posting the really nice message I just got from her.

She said, “I can’t get over how amazing these pictures turned out. I have seriously looked at them over and over and I can’t get enough!! You truly have a gift, and I’ve really been able to relive each moment just through pictures, which I never thought was possible! I can’t tell you how happy these have made me and just how thankful I am for your hard work, attention to detail, patience, kindness, and true talent! I could go on and on! You’ve brought back to life the best day of my life! I’ll somehow work on choosing my favorites for the album, but it’ll be hard! Just wanted to send you a quick and big THANK YOU! ☺️”

It always makes me so happy to get a message like this! For the reception we went to one of my favorite locations, Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club. There are so many pretty spots for pictures around the club and on the golf course. The staff is also really nice there and they seem to like me a lot. I did some pictures with the couple before the reception, but I also pulled them out about 30min before sunset for some more portraits on the golf course. I always love shots from the golf course with the club and sunset in the background. The only problem was the wet grass. You might not be able to tell in the picture but the bride and groom had some wet butts after laying together in front of the lake ?.

I hope you enjoy the pictures below, let me know in the comments if you do!
