Back in September I had the pleasure of capturing Luda and Andrey’s beautiful wedding in Spartanburg, SC.  They are so much fun, always laughing, joking and having a good time. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and working with the bridal party was such a blast, they were all on a different level of high and excitement.

The wedding decor was the perfect balance between rustic and glamorous with soft whites, eggplant, accents of gold and OMG the floral design!! Check out some of my favorites! 

And a BIG thank you to Ilona Savich for the beautiful hair and makeup.

Winter Wedding | Spartanburg, SC photographer | David & Ilona

David is from Bellingham, Washington, when he came to visit his family in Spartanburg, South Carolina he met Ilona and they were instantly attracted to each other. The day of their wedding was such a beautiful day sunny but freezing; good thing it wasn’t too windy or else we would all be sick the next morning. The reception and ceremony at “Art of Salvation Church in Inman” was so beautifully decorated, every detail was perfect, and their I Do’s were just so sweet. We ended up going to downtown Greenville after the reception for some beautiful night pictures and delicious (oh so needed) Starbucks coffee! David and Ilona wishing you all the happiness in the world and I can’t wait to see you two love birds when you come to visit. 

Portland City Grill Wedding | Portland, OR photographer | Dima & Olga


Portland is known for its gloomy and rainy weather especially in September, but boy were we lucky on Dima and Olgas wedding. It was nice and chilly in there morning with such a warm sun, it was as if we were back in South Carolina. The day started off with the wedding party climbing into a pretty sweet Lincoln Navigator and we were off to the Pittock Mansion; but not without stopping in to feed our caffeine addictions, thank you Starbucks. With the whole party being such a fun bunch that was up for anything we had no problem getting gorgeous, crazy, and fun shots. At one point a selfie stick made an appearance as well. After all that fun we were excited to get those 2 married. Ceremony and reception took place on the 30th floor of the Portland City Grill; everywhere we looked there were beautiful city views. There was lots of music, delicious food and fun games for hours. After all that goodness we ended our day with beautiful sunset pictures at the Mill Ends Park in Downtown Portland Oregon. Can’t wait to get back; grab coffee with the love birds and explore what Portland has to offer.

Greer City Hall Park Wedding | Greer, SC photographer | Alex & Karina

Alex and Karina’s wedding day was so beautiful. The weather loved us; it was sunny, warm with a cool breeze. They decided to have their wedding outside for the ceremony and reception inside at the Greer City Park. Every detail was perfect, but the bride was really sad because her father would not be able to walk her down the aisle since he had an amputated leg and was still learning how to walk on his prosthetic. She asked her older brother to do the honor, but for her surprise… there stood her father at the beginning of the aisle waiting on his baby, she burst into tears. And let me tell you there was not a single person with dry eyes, and yes that included me. Alex’s family flew in from Seattle, Washington; and Karina’s grandparents and aunt came from Portland, Oregon to give their blessings and celebrate with them. I could not have asked for a better bride and groom. They are so in love, funny, full of life and energy. We ended up going to Falls Park in Greenville, South Carolina to end the day. The next day we decided to go up to Caesar Head Park for some breath taking views and for some more pictures of course. The stress was over and they were able to relax and be goofballs that they are; for me and the camera. Congratulation Alex and Karina wishing you the best!
