I cry at, if not all the weddings I photograph, about 99% of them. Normally, at the ceremony, when the bride and groom say their vows. But this time, it was during the first dance. I cried behind the camera as Sonya and Brian danced to "Jesus Be The Center" by Israel Houghton.  I watched as they sang and worshiped together, along with attendants at the wedding. It was absolutely, one of the best first dances I've seen. I actually blasted that song on repeat all the way home that night. 

A few months before their wedding we scheduled their engagement session in Charleston, SC. Lets just say, I made Sonya walk about 1 million miles in her high heel shoes. I thought for sure she'd throw me to the curb after that! She didn't and I'm so glad she kept me! 

Please enjoy scrolling through their wedding from The O'Donnell House, in Sumter, South Carolina!
