Sharri McMillian - Lucy & Steven,
Thank you so much for doing an awesome job on John and Jenn’s wedding. Without a doubt your pictures are some of the best I have ever seen. The memories that we will have of our son’s wedding will be with us forever!! What impressed me the most was your enthusiasm that you both had for this joyous occasion. We felt that you were part of the family and that you were just as excited as we were. The pictures took my breath away. The pictures of Jenn with John while he was blindfolded were beyond any words I can say. You captured all the love Jenn has for John on her face. You captured all of the excitement, joy, friendship, fun and love that went on during the whole day and night. We are blessed to have these pictures to treasure. If you ever need a recommendation just have them call me!! :-) Sincerely, Sharri McMillian.

Jennifer McMillian - Wow! I am blown away by your talents in capturing these moments and memories so beautifully. Thank you so much for making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and allowing us to remain true to US. I cannot thank you enough for giving us a gift that we will treasure for a lifetime!

tonya bridals with the cows

When Tonya told me how much she loved cows I thought well why in the world should we not take pictures with them for her bridals? So, we did just that! We headed out to the Dairy Barn in Fort Mill, SC where she would be getting married just a couple weeks later! These are some of my favorite bridals!
