In A Nutshell: Watch This Video
These are a handful of different couples I've worked with and their stories.
Our Latest Work
Sarah & Chris
Which wedding day package is this? The Mackdaddy (Option #3)
These music loving California dreamin' couple created the celebration of a lifetime, back where it all started: Hilton Head. It was a beautiful afternoon ceremony at Sonesta Resort, followed up with a super fun reception complete with traditional Greek dances, some bangin' tunes from the Jackson based band, Who Rescued Who, and so much love and family. Did I mention the legendary playlist? I instantly fell in love with the bridesmaids and Chris' mom, as she was knitting a poncho when I came in to start filming the girls getting ready. Having a wonderful group of people makes ALL of the difference when it comes to capturing the moment, and clearly Chris and Sarah are surrounded by so much love.
My personal favorite part? Chris' face when he sees Sarah walking down the aisle. UGH!!!! My heart!!!!
Watch it and see for yourself!
Meredith & Andy
Which wedding day package is this? Mackdaddy + Rehearsal Dinner Coverage (Option #3 + Drone Footage)
I don't think I've ever cried so much WHILE FILMING as I did filming their weekend. Yes, you read that right, I was wiping tears from my eyes throughout their rehearsal dinner and wedding day.
From the heart felt speech from Meredith's brother to watching Meredith and Andy both crying as she walked down the aisle, the love in this wedding paralleled the beauty of it. Their ceremony took place on the beautiful rooftop venue, Ventanas of Hilton Garden Inn smack dab in the middle of beautiful Atlanta. My favorite parts?
- Taking bridal + wedding party portraits on the helipad,
- and the surprise HELICOPTER SEND OFF, of course!!
- they had the COOLEST cookies from Baked Confections of their German Shepard and their Siamese cat, Zip and Lola! (The cookies were so cute I waited 4 hours before finally eating one on my drive back to Charleston!)
- And Meredith's Grandmother was one of the most beautiful people I have ever met.
- Kristen Scott is one of my favorite wedding planners in the universe so getting the opportunity to play a part in one of her brilliant productions is always an absolute blast.
Their full collection is still in post production, but you can watch their teaser reel here!
Hyatt & Sullivan
Which wedding day package is this? Mr. & Mrs. Popular (Option #2 + Drone Coverage)
These local sweethearts got married here in beautiful Charleston, surrounded by all of their besties.
My favorite parts? The HAT PARADE, of course!!
Brittany & Trevor
Which wedding day packages was this? Option #3
I (Shelby) knew Brittany and Trevor these guys were going to be absolutely amazing when our initial consultation that normally lasts around 25-30 minutes was almost 2 hours. These foodies met one another at a Sippin' Safari event at the zoo in Greenville as Brittany and her girlfriends asked this handsome young man to take their picture. The wedding day style was simple, elegant and minimalistic: White linen with accents of Rosemary at Alhambra Hall in Charleston. My personal favorite moment of their big day? The first look. These two have the sweetest way in interacting with one another... Trevor shared his story about his dapper pocketwatch (which LOOKS like it works ;) ) and Brittany shared the story of how she found her (amazing Blush) dress. Being around these two you can't help but feel the affection and respect they have for one another...It's inspiring!
Christa & Alfredo
Which wedding day package is this? The Essentials
Kristen & Will
Which package is this? Rehearsal Dinner Coverage
Kristen and Will's Rehearsal Dinner was surrounded by love and the company of SO many loving family members at Kiawah's Cassique Golf Resort Venue. Tables were garnished with local wild grasses + flowers, and the room brimming with laughter, embarassing stories and heartfelt toasts as over 23 friends shared their love and encouragement to these two.
What stood out to me (Shelby) the most?
Mother of the Groom, Holly did an INCREDIBLE job putting together one of the most creative and entertaining Photo Montages of their family and friends (you can watch it in the link below to their collection!) Watching Kristen and Will's reactions to the slideshow and the memories it contained was absolutely priceless.

Melissa & Justin
Which wedding day package was this? Option #3
Melissa and Justin got married March 25, 2017 at the historic (and AMAZING) William Aiken House on King Street in historic downtown Charleston. Melissa is originally from North Carolina, Justin's family is from south Florida so Charleston was a happy middle ground for a gorgeous destination wedding. My personal favorite moments? I pretty much fell in love with all of Melissa's nieces and nephews under the age of 7. Capturing Melissa's 8-month old twin nieces trying to eat the lipgloss tool was WAY too adorable, and seeing how proud Melissa's nephew came up to his grandmother and proudly exclaimed, "I GOT A BOWTIE!" and his little brother Dale beaming at all his aunts as they finished getting ready was the sweetest thing to me. Melissa and Justin's families were some of the kindest, most accommodating families I've ever filmed. And let's not forget the moment the groomsmen surprised the wedding guests with their Magic Mike dance session.

Sara & Kevin
Which videography package is this? Option #2
Sara and Kevin's romantic beach front wedding video at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina. This was a beautiful destination wedding as their families came from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area to sunny and historical Charleston, South Carolina to celebrate their marriage to one another.

Amanda & Wes
Amanda and Wes met through their mutual love of softball.
One of the sweetest, most down to earth couples I've ever worked with, we instantly bonded over their love of the show, "Below Deck" on Bravo and my background of working on boats, and having discovering we're both golden retrievers parents (the picture above is from their engagement pictures on Folly Beach with their little Golden girl, Lacie Mae.) They had a beautiful wedding ceremony at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on John's Island, and their reception followed at the Seabrook Island Clubhouse.
an apparition or double of a living person
Used in a sentence: "No one told me Wes' Best Man was Justin Timberlake's doppelgänger."
Their best man, David gave the greatest recap of their relationship through the years and finished his speech with a little something for Amanda to use if Wes ever got outta line... It was priceless!
From a filming perspective I had so much fun capturing their sparkler send off in ultra slow motion - 240 frames per second, AND there's nothing like bubbering behind the camera wiping tears off my face watching the two of them dance as Thomas Rhett's "Die A Happy Man" played for their first song together.
Who You Gonna Call: Tori & John
You can learn a lot about a bride and groom from the speeches given at their weddings. As Tori's MOH recalled their college days where they connected over their love of I Love Lucy and being Night Owls, to John's best man, his father some words of wisdom for the young and newly married, it was clear this couple left a wake of love, thoughtfulness and sincerity through their worlds.
I captured one of my favorite images of all time at their wedding; Bo (their Chocolate Lab)'s response to their first look.
I looked forward to filming their wedding for months as they mentioned the possibility of their bridal entrance involving the Ghost Buster theme song and Proton backpacks...their entrance did not disappoint!
The Emerald Empire Band sang those Motown riffs and Funky Blues all throughout this unforgettable night.
Rockstars & Cake Cutting Extraordinaires: Melissa and Matt
I don't know what was better, the look of terror on Matt's face or the fact that about 5 seconds before Melissa says, "Okay don't mess this up," but Melissa and Matt definitely got the Best Cake Cutting of 2016 award in my book. Matt's giddy laughter perfectly summed up not only this moment but the energy on this special day. Melissa and Matt are two of the most kind, easygoing people you will ever meet. I loved how Melissa's little sisters and Matt's brother told the stories of how Matt and Melissa really got together.
Oh, and did I mention they are complete rockstars? That's right, they got up on the stage and rocked their socks off with The Moxie Band (hands down one of the best wedding bands I've ever seen!), the only thing that could've made that moment any better was a little more cowbell.
Kristen Scott did a stunning job pulling together Melissa's vision, especially those oyster and pearl placards! Congratulations Melissa and Matt! We loved celebrating with you and your families!
Katie and Spencer: Wedding Ceremony Of The Year
This wedding was nothing but fun from the start - one of their dear friends made his wedding officiant debut at their wedding and man, there is nothing like a good friend to tell it like it REALLY is on your wedding day! This couple had a unique (and more and more common these days) way of meeting (watch their ceremony video to find out!) and the truth came out during their ceremony. Katie and Spencer's day was filled with nothing but laughter and tears of joy. Katie did a first look with her Dad and it was such a special moment between the two of them. Other highlights from this wedding include sneaking the bride through the hotel on a luggage caddy, a groomsmen driving from Hilton Head to Atlanta to buy a second set of his three piece suit, and the Best Man's story of working with a company out of china to make bobble head replicas of him and Spencer. This wedding was nothing but fun and I had a blast working alongside Corey Cassaw out of Kansas City, Missouri.
