Once again, so excited to share a few of my personal images from another wedding with Carla Talley. This time in Pawley’s Island and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Montgomery + Ecton, I could go on for days about your wedding. Everything was so incredibly beautiful – from the quaint chapel for the ceremony, to the Packard, to the florals, to the sunset.
On top of all of this perfection, the day was filled with so much sentiment. Montgomery got ready at her family’s beach house on the island – filled with years of memories. She also gifted Ecton with a ticket from the night they met in Nashville at an event called Beers & Hymns. Montgomery also requested to take pictures on their dock prior to the ceremony, dressed in her beautiful gown with her aunt’s veil.
As a photographer, you have the advantage of spending time with both the bride and the groom separately on their big day. What made their wedding day even more special was Ecton’s excitement and anticipation over seeing Montgomery for the first time in her wedding dress. After we finished his portraits and we were getting ready to leave to photograph the bride, Ecton asked us with the biggest smile on his face, “How is Montgomery doing?” Genuine people like Montgomery and Ecton are why I love wedding photography so much.
Montgomery and Ecton, what a joy it was to be a part of your big day!
