December 30, 2023. City Market. Columbia, SC.
I first met Katherine & Ray at their engagement session. They were such a joy to hang out with and seriously the most photogenic couple. These two chose to say I do’s at Eastminster Pres. Church. I’ve photographed weddings there before and it is always a favorite. The church is stunning and the grounds are perfect for bridal party and family photos. AND can we talk about Pastor Brad, I just love him.
K+R had a very intimate ceremony with only their parents and siblings. After the ceremony, the extended family joined us outside for some family photos.
Once we finished with all of the family photos, we headed to City market where we took advantage of a beautiful alley with string lights and finished up portraits there. The couple went on to have a bite to eat. (Here is where I insert that Ray called Katherine “His good eater” and seriously I will never forget this) Southern way does have the good eats. The brussel sprouts are to die for!
The couple chose the famous Root Doctors and as always they brought the party! If you are looking for a wedding band, they are everything you are looking for.
The night was perfect. I’m so thankful for events like this one, that make my job a piece of cake 🙂 Now on to the photos!
