Olivia has always been the sweetest friend/ray of sunshine. She encouraged me so much through high school and it's a beautiful thing to think of her power of encouragement in a marriage! She's always been America's sweetheart to me, ya know? You deserve all the happiness and love, Liv, and I was so happy to see (at the very least) that your man smiles almost as much as you do. Uncontrollable joy of joys! Congrats to the Medlins. Here is their extremely special day.
So happy was this photographer to be a part of such a lush and green upstate SC wedding. The rain could not stop the beauty of this day. Rain actually just highlighted and enhanced every detail. From the flower crowns to the beautiful covenant made between two deeply in sync people--everything shone brightly. Congrats to my sweet friend Chrissy and her new husband. OH man, these photos.
Charleston--land of weddings/love. I adored being a part of this couple's happy destination wedding day. It had all the vintage details and perfect Charleston side streets. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
This wedding meant getting to experience the newness of 2016 right by that South Carolina tide. The ocean at sunset, this couple's marriage at its very beginning--it was all a joy to see up close. Congratulations to Lindsey and Mark. Now look at these happy photographs, people.
Charleston is beginning to call on Maggie Calton Photography more and more lately and I would never dare complain. All the charm, spanish moss, and smiling people you could ask for. Time moves slow in the low country, even on a wedding day. Many congratulations to Gabi and Reece. This wedding is stunning, forever.
Perfect country wedding. Rain just before the ceremony to keep us all alert; big, giant, beautiful sun just in time for dusk. Congrats to Austin and Alice. Check out some of my favorite shots.
I met Grace and Ian a little under a year ago to take their engagements in the always charming Queen City (that's Charlotte, NC, darlings). And somehow, time did that thing it does where it made the seemingly far off wedding day finally arrive. Time also did a little preserving--Grace and Ian were just as classy and calm and in love as the day I first met them. A winter wedding was also just what post-Christmas Maggie needed. I love this job.
One of the most memorable things about Grace and Ian's wedding--it was a wet and rainy day but I'm pretty sure the bridal party never noticed... The lovebirds and their friends were just having way too much fun to talk about rain. Wedding day optimism is the best.
