Rose gold Island Getaway

Writing by Carleen Lord

“I don’t know if I necessarily believe in love at first sight, however I do believe in love at first connection. I do believe that everyone has a soul mate or someone in this world that they just connect with and those two individuals completely understand each other and share the same values and ideas for their future. And when you meet someone like this, you completely fall in love.”

“TJ and I have worked together for over 5 years, which most couples probably don’t do… and we work very well together, we are able to maintain professionalism while still making the work environment fun and exciting. We spend pretty much all of our time together- because we want to. And never get sick of each other, which most people think is weird.”

“Throughout the 5 years that we have been together, TJ has taught me so much about myself, he has taught me to love myself and to not always be so hard on myself. He has taught me to be more relaxed and not so uptight, and has taught me to not question myself. He truly is the best man.”

“In my opinion a healthy relationship should provide stability, understanding, empathy, trust, fun, laughter, being able to work through disagreements and arguments, supporting one another’s needs and wants, allowing each other to be themselves and feel comfortable being themselves completely. I believe that a healthy relationship promotes each other to do their absolute best in this world. That is what my relationship with TJ provides to me. From the minute I met TJ, he made me 100% comfortable about who I am, he consistently supports my hopes and dreams and flaws. He brings so much joy and laughter into my life, every day.” 
“TJ brings out the best in me, when I am around him, I am my best self. He brings out the fun in me, the stress free me. He constantly makes my life exciting and meaningful; we always have the best times together no matter what we are doing. The thing I cherish most about TJ is his ability to always look at the bright side of things and never the negative, and his smile.” 

“My definition of love… Love is a bond that two people share, a mutual respect and support for one another. Love is something that you find in someone who supports your strengths, builds up your weaknesses, and accepts all of your flaws. Love is non-judgmental; love is closeness, intimacy, happiness. When you love someone you always want to be around that person and share everything with them- good and bad. Love is partnership, acceptance, and trust.” 

“If we received enough money to never work again, we would be traveling the world and when we weren’t traveling we would be living on Shaw Island, just living the simple, beautiful, island life. It has always been a dream of mine to run a bed and breakfast on the island, so more people could come and enjoy the beauty of Shaw- that is definitely what we would be doing.”

Springtime Backyard Celebrations

Writing by Alyssa Wilcox


If I were a bridal shower what would I look like? With anything wedding related it’s important for it to reflect the person it’s honoring. I’m thankful to have friends that encouraged that to ring true. I wanted an environment that was elegant to help influence a relaxing experience. Nothing more than a dreamy sun filled backyard, neutral colors, the right tunes, scattered with the ladies close to me. In the best way I was surrounded by loving women who carry so many different qualities I admire. With a straight forward vision, on a Sunday afternoon, I was presented with such a classy bridal shower, I couldn’t imagine anything else more spot on to represent me as a bride. Between the generosity of the location, organizational skills, decor on point, baked goods, food prep, and every detail photographed to look back on, I felt so special to be thrown such a beautiful celebration.

    Britt from Cosinger has recommended you to me as we’re looking for someone to redo our shots for our products from the website. If you’re interested could you give an idea of how much you might charge for these?
    Many thanks
