Bald Rock Couple Session | Jon & Eve

If you’ve followed me for a while or read my recent post about Matt’s and my love story, you’ve heard of Jon & Eve. These two are some of the most wonderful humans you will ever meet. I first met Eve through one of my closest friends, Savannah while I was still in high school. […]

Sara: Senior Photos in Downtown Greenville

I’m very excited to share these senior photos with you! Sara and I had a great time in Downtown Greenville taking her senior photos just three days after her brother’s wedding, which I also had the honor of photographing. Sara came extra prepared with different outfits and her violin, which gave us tons of different images and styles! We shot until the absolute last minutes of daylight. Thanks for walking around downtown with me, Sara! Best wishes in your future pursuits!

Elisa: Senior Session at Furman University

Elisa is one of my dearest friends. She is kind, generous, and loving to every single person she meets. I am constantly humbled by her outstanding ability to connect with and love people. I was so happy to be able to photograph her college graduation photos. We actually did this shoot back in April, but somehow it got lost in the shuffle of everything and I am only just now posting it. Furman University has been a favorite location of mine lately because it is so diverse in its backdrops. We chose a glorious evergreen tree and a woodsy location for these photos. As we were leaving, we happened upon a dogwood tree in full bloom and snapped some shots there that ended up being our favorites from the shoot. I am so happy that I was able to capture these photos of my sweet friend!

Natalie, Kathleen, Molly, and Sarah: Senior Shoot at Furman University

Last month, I had the wonderful privilege of being able to shoot not one senior, but four! These lovely ladies decided to have their senior photos made at the same time so they could enjoy doing it together. We chose Furman as our location and made use of some of the woodsy areas and the lake. It was fun to see how each girl owned the space differently. I loved hanging out with these girls and getting to know them! I wish them the best of luck in applying for colleges! Look out, world!

Jenifer, Megan, and Stephanie

I held a contest over on my facebook page where the 400th liker received a free 30-minute mini session. Jenifer, a high school senior, was the winner and decided to share the session with two of her friends. We had a great time over near the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville. They were so much […]

Sarah: Film

My friend Sarah was kind enough to pose for me for my first venture into portraits with film. I only used one roll before it got too dark. These are unedited, because it felt wrong editing them for some reason, haha. Maybe I’ll give in some day. Enjoy! – CD

Adventures in Film

I found my grandpa’s old Minolta 35mm film camera from the 80s, and a friend of mine gave me her newer Nikon 35mm film camera that she had no use for, so I decided to take Thanksgiving break and learn how to use them. Here are a few of my favorites from the Nikon. None […]
