Congratulations Joellen and Steven!!! I am excited to work with you both!To the participants, you all deserve to have the best wedding photographs.

You’re too funny Virgil. As you get older you realize Charleston really isn’t that big. I think people remember me b/c I am loud, wild, and crazy and will try most things (legal of course) once. 😉 Therefore I meet and run into all sorts of friends, old and new ones. Steve and Jo I met because I joined a kickball team and was on the same team as Steve for a couple of seasons. I really miss my old kickball crew since moving to Augusta. They all call me “mama” since I was usually on the first base line telling them all “to come see mama” when I wanted them to get a good kick out of the roll. We all had many a good times at our local sponsor’s spots after the games (The Brick and Jimmy Dengates) were big supporters. I can’t wait until April. I know Steve and Jo will have a very fun wedding and lucky for them the best photographer will be there to capture all of the special and fun moments.
