Mr & Mrs Riles O’Donnell House Sumter, SC Wedding

I owe all of the appreciation in the world to Emily Solberg Photography for these images and for capturing this wedding. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant, due in December, I reached out to Emily to see if she would be willing to capture the Riles’ wedding for me since I would be 38 weeks pregnant. She graciously said YES and I am so glad she did! The images are completely stunning for a pretty incredible couple.

I hate I missed the big day but I did have the privilege of getting to capture Christen and Shane’s engagement pictures – and let me tell you, these two are more than perfect for each other. Shane is always going above and beyond to surprise Christen. At their engagement session, he made surprise reservations after the session since she was already dressed up. On their wedding day, he surprised her by bringing their dogs to the venue for a few pictures. What a pleasure it was to be involved in even just a small portion of the Riles’ story! Thank you both for trusting me and Emily to capture and edit your big day!
