Samantha + English's Puptastic Same-Sex Newlywed Portraits in Columbia, SC

English and Samantha were married in a backyard ceremony in Columbia, South Carolina, with only the closest of their friends and family in attendance. English and Sam wanted to be sure to document this special time in their lives with beautiful newlywed portraits, and I'm so honored that the chose me as their same-sex friendly wedding photographer.

English and Sam decided to bring along their two dogs during their session for photos of all of them together as a family. If you know me, you know that I am always happy when my clients bring along their fur babies. English and Samantha's pups, Kerwin and Zoe, wore a matching bandanna and bowtie set, and rocked out their photos with the couple. What better prop could one have other than a doggo or two in a photo, amiright? 

English and Samantha laughed and giggled throughout their entire session! Their newlywed joy and excitement about this big step in their relationship was so evident in every photo of them together. Right after we met up to photograph these portraits, English and Samantha took a big leap and moved to Colorado. Not only were these portraits meant to commemorate their marriage and the beginning of their life together, but also their time in Columbia, South Carolina, and all their memories here.

Kerwin and Zoe really tried to steal the show with how cute they were in all of their photos with English and Sam! But these two lovely ladies' style and sophistication could not be out-shined. I loved getting a chance to photograph English for the first time after knowing each other for a few years, and honestly, I cannot get over her gorgeous curls!! Sam donned a bowtie and looked so sharp.

English and Sam are so cute, and I am so happy that they chose to bring along their dogs for a bit of their session with me. Be sure to leave these newlyweds some love in the comments below, and congratulations again Mrs. & Mrs. Bennett!!

JESSICA HUNT PHOTOGRAPHY

I’m a big dreamer and a lover of all things coffee, purple, and photography-related. Oh, and I’m a Columbia SC wedding photographer serving wedding photography collections in South Carolina and world wide. I’ve been shooting weddings professionally for 7 years, and this job is my DREAM job.

Ever since I got my first little point and shoot camera at the age of 16, I've been in love with capturing moments we can never get back. 

Now, I shoot 20-25 South Carolina and destination weddings annually, and let me just tell you, I feel like I’m living the DREAM. And, really, I AM living my dream. Working as a professional artist and wedding photographer has been my dream since I was 17, and I’m still humbled to this day that THIS, incredible job, is what I do. 
 
My little family consists of one pup and two cats; I get along better with my furry friends than humans some days! I love to read novels and am always game for good movie. Oh, and also ALWAYS down for a craft beer from the tap!
