Molly + Matt // A Charleston Schoolhouse Wedding

Molly and Matt’s wedding was my start to the 2020 wedding season. And I believe it was the perfect start to a year full of indescribable joy, exciting traveling and marvelous celebrations!

So, how did Molly end up booking with me?



Right before Christmas 2018 and after I officially started my business, I offered family mini sessions. I ended up photographing a sweet couple with their two sons. As it turns out, I photographed Molly’s brother Patrick and his little family. I had no idea that Patrick’s sister was engaged back then.


A couple weeks later

Molly’s mom reached out to me, asking if I also photograph weddings since she fell in love with the images I shot. That was huge for me!!

Another couple weeks later I remember Molly, her mom Suzanne and me sitting at Vintage Coffee and talking about her wedding day. Whenever I meet with a new couple, I show them how a wedding day with me would look. I have done plenty of those meetings, but this one was very special to me.


In the middle of my presentation

I looked up and saw them both smiling with tears in their eyes. They started laughing, trying to hide the tears (which didn’t work at all) This moment touched me so deeply that I couldn’t help but also tearing up a little. To see those true emotions and happiness and knowing that they might trust me with one of the most important tasks on Molly’s big day was the best thing that happened that day!!

After an unexpectedly freezing cold engagement session – click here to see their extremely cute outfit choices – their wedding day was perfect!! And when I say perfect, I mean it. Later that night Molly told me that she had secretly hoped for a little bit of rain because, as we know, that means luck 🙂 Even though it was January 11th it was mild 76 degrees, some sun and some clouds, a little bit of wind and for the luck: some sprinkles!!

Molly and Matt, I wish you all the luck in the world and that all the dreams you are working on will come true!!
