Shabby Chic Romantic Wedding at Gassaway Mansion

Keely and Josh were married at the Gassaway Mansion in May 2014.  When I first met Keely, she described her wedding decor as romantic and shabby chic.  I knew I would love this wedding from the beginning.  The ceremony was held outdoors with church pews and a church door and steeple for the bride to walk through down the aisle. The coral and bright blue color scheme was lovely for a warm, spring wedding.  I chose to have Keely put on her dress in a parlor vs. the designated bridal room due to the fact that there were big windows with natural light and additional space for all her bridesmaids to assist her. Keely and Josh chose to see each other before wedding.  This is always such a special time for the couple to be alone for a few moments on their big day.  The kids in this wedding had me laughing all day as well.  Be sure to check out the amazing bouquet toss sequence at the end of this blogpost.  Another advantage of hiring two photographers is that you can capture everything!

Congrats to Keely and Josh; I hope you are enjoying your new home!

Thank you to this wedding’s vendors for creating such a wonderful day for Keely and Josh!

Behind the Scenes with Seek Joy Photography

I love children’s fashion.  These style shoots have become one of my favorites and I am excited to share with you a behind the scenes look from the most recent session with The Petite Parade.  Our three little models, Allie, Addison, and Isabela, joined me at Postcards from Paris where we captured these images in their courtyard.  If you are looking for beautiful home decor you should def. go see the showroom at Postcards located in the Westend.  This session featured the Mustard Pie clothing collection that can be purchased at The Petite Parade located on Augusta St.  I asked my friend and fellow photographer, Mel Nocks, to join me for this shoot to assist with reflectors and also capture some behind the scene images and video clips.  We had intermittent rain showers throughout the session which did present some challenges.  However, once the son peaked back out, I took the girls back outside to splash in the puddles.  The rain on the ground created a natural reflector as well resulting in gorgeous lighting for the last shots.  If you are looking for clothing for your child or baby’s upcoming photo shoot be sure to check out The Petite Parade.

Mustard Pie Style Shoot {Greenville Child Photographer}

I absolutely adore the clothing line from Mustard Pie.  You can see the latest fashions on their website at  For this style shoot, I teamed up with The Petite Parade who provided the clothing and hair accessories.  This shoot was held at a home in Simpsonville, SC.  I loved the way the trees and old grape vines framed the girls during the session.  It was a hot, humid summer evening during this session so the girls took breaks inside to cool off.  I used several Holly Hobby dolls during the shoot and created the vintage ribbon backdrop myself.  Be sure to check out The Petite Parade next time you are in the West End!
