SHANE + DARCY’S WEDDING IN MALIBU, CA

Aaron-and-Jillian-Photography,-Charleston-wedding-photographersTo say we were super excited when Shane and Darcy first contacted us to shoot their Malibu wedding at Calamigos Ranch would be a serious understatement!  We absolutely LOVE Southern California!  It’s where I (Jillian) was born and raised, and having the chance to hang out for a whole week with my parents, while also spending a day out in Malibu shooting a gorgeous wedding in some California sunshine, was a serious win win for us!  You may be wondering, “How in the world did they find you guys?”  Well, Shane’s cousin happens to be our own fabulous wedding photographer (Briana Moore Photography) and when he told her she wasn’t allowed to shoot their wedding because he wanted her to attend as a guest and enjoy some family time, she quickly recommended us!!  THANK YOU BRI!!!  Shane, Darcy and I all chatted on the phone one night and that was it!  We were all smitten with each other and ready to make it official!  These two were so sweet, fun, laid-back, trusting of us and whatever we wanted to do with them, incredibly authentic, and full of life!  Didn’t hurt that their wedding was set in one of the most beautiful ranches in Los Angeles!  Enjoy some of our favorite images from their Calamigos Ranch wedding in Malibu, California!bride and groom portraits, bride with hair extensions, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographerAaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographer princess wedding gown, wedding dress shot, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographerwedding rings, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, 2014, destination wedding photographerAaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographer, pink and white garden roses bouquet, chandeliers hanging from treesAaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographerEntrance to The Oaks, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographerRhinestone Bride robe, miss Dior perfume, bridal suite, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographerbride getting her hair done, bride with hair extensions, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding,Bride getting ready, hair and makeup being done in a bridal suite, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding,  destination wedding photographerAaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographerBride putting on her wedding dress, bride getting her hair and makeup done, Aaron and Jillian Photography, Charleston wedding photographers, natural light wedding photographers, South Carolina wedding photographer, Calamigos Ranch wedding, The Oak Room renovated, 2014, destination wedding photographer

THE SHUEY’S – A CHARLESTON FAMILY SESSION

shuey-girlsAaron and I had the pleasure of meeting these three little blonde angels when we photographed the youngest daughter’s Senior portraits last month in downtown Charleston!  We LOVED them from the moment we met and were so excited when they booked us to photograph their family session a few weeks later.  I’ve always said that investing in a beautiful family photo every few years is important and these 3 couldn’t agree more and were prepared in gorgeous shades of coral, white and blue (some of my favorite combinations) to work it in front of the camera and capture this time in their lives!  I just wish their dad could see them now!  He would be so proud of his beautiful wife and the mom she is to his perfectly sweet and respectful daughters.  I’m telling you, these three are like little blonde angels!   Enjoy some of our favorite shots from the session!  - Jillian

DAVIS + TATE’S HISTORIC RICE MILL WEDDING IN CHARLESTON

tate-and-davis

Aaron and I had the chance to shoot a fabulous wedding at two of the coolest venues in Charleston; The Mills House and The Historic Rice Mill!  (…And yes, we got the names of them confused all day long!)  Not only was the Rice Mill built in the 1800′s, but it’s on the National Register of Historic Places and happens to be the only of Charleston’s three antebellum rice mills to still be standing.  The charm of the building is almost as fabulous as the couple who we got the chance to photograph in it!  The first time I talked to Tate over the phone, we immediately clicked!  Her bursts of adorable energy were what drew me in and made me fall in love with her and Davis!  This girl loves her friends, adore’s her hubby, never stops smiling, and can seriously break it down on the dance floor!  :)  Their wedding day started off calm and cool as the breeze outside, with a team from Stuart Laurence Salon filling the bridal suite at The Mills House and Tate playing song after song on her iphone, dedicating each one to one of her 11 bridesmaids!  It was the perfect day!  It wasn’t until everyone was seated for their outdoor ceremony that the sky began to open and the rain made it’s grand entrance to the day!  Ahh, rainy day weddings – you know it just means the couple will have lots of beautiful babies, right?!  Their wedding planner, Hannah of Southern Protocol, burst into action and came to the rescue, moving the entire ceremony to the opposite side of the building in record time!  And while I’m on the topic of Hannah, let’s just take a second to give her a round of applause for the STUNNING design she came up with for this wedding, which was a COMPLETE SURPRISE to Tate and Davis!  And let’s be honest, Charleston Stems never disappoints with their gorgeous florals either!!!  Ahh, it’s like a dream right?!  Enjoy some of our favorite images from the day!
