Marika and Alan | Aiken Wedding Photographer | The Omni at Hilton Head Island

Marika and Alan are absolute sweethearts you guys! I've had the pleasure of photographing their intimate Hilton Head Island wedding in October! One of my favorite months for weddings!  I loved that since we moved to South Carolina a few years ago, I've photographed so many lowcountry weddings and shoots! Their day was so relaxed as they celebrated by the ocean (what a dream!) with their closest friends and family! And after the wedding they even sent me a super sweet gift including a polaroid camera, and I about fell over in gratitude! It just blew me away, and I've been using it A TON on the #giancolababes for everyday real moments in the kitchen and living room :) Thank y'all Marika and Alan, your day is such a fond memory of mine, and the light and love in your photos just makes me happy!

The Beach House | Augusta Wedding Photographer | Hilton Head Island Wedding

I'm so excited to share Kylia and Danny's Hilton Head Island wedding with y'all! They both live there, (how cool) and had their family and close friends come from all over to help celebrate their day! Such a special wedding for me to photograph too because it was my last one before going on maternity leave for #babygiancola2 and possibly my last wedding I'll ever shoot pregnant too! Kylia and Danny were so easy going and relaxed, which is always so refreshing and fun to be around! After their first look (yay!) they said their vows on the beach, and continued the party inside with seashell decor, an adorable cake and cupcakes, and heartfelt toasts, before dancing the night away! Thanks you two for having me capture your day, and to all those who also made it possible credited below :)
