This industry has brought me close with people from all around. Erin was our engagement photographer back in 2013. Since Max and I adored working with her and her fun spirit at our engagement session, we hired her on for our Tybee Island wedding in 2014. We've kept in touch over the years and Erin has been a phenomenal encourager and advisor as I've come up through this industry. So when we were in South Carolina at the beginning of August, I thought I'd see if we could grab dinner with these precious folks one evening. Max and I headed down to Bluffton, South Carolina for an evening of fun with Mike, Erin, and their sweet girl, McKendree. They took us to the most beautiful spot in Bluffton -- I've always wanted to shoot under the Spanish moss covered trees -- including the church where Mike proposed to Erin a few years ago. We had the best time catching up, laughing at McKendree, and snapping pictures of each other. McKendree will be one year old this November, (and I may be slightly partial) but is the cutest little girl around! She remained serious the entire time we took photos but became obsessed with Max at dinner and couldn't stop laughing at him. HA! This friendship has truly been such a blessing, and our hearts are so full!
