Photography isn't just about the pose, it's about all the moments in between; I capture them, to truly tell your story and memorialize your important day! I am an all occasion photographer! Life is meant to be photographed, not staged in a series of cell phone selfies! 


About

I am a professional photographer in South Carolina. Though I live in the South Eastern, United States, I am a destination photographer as well! My background is in Event Planning, so I tend to sway more towards Weddings and Corporate Event coverage. I love to capture raw emotion in candid environments, children and couples especially! I mostly book through client referrals and friend of friend networking; because I take care of my many repeat and loyal clients! So once you're my client, you will always get preferential treatment, with quicker turn around times, scheduling and many extras! I look forward to meeting you and getting you on my client list! 

I am a New England native, growing up along the coast of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts (Boston). Why "Dormant" Gypsy? I am a true gypsy at heart, yet my paternal responsibilities have put my vagabond ways in limbo; BUT now that my kids are older, I have much more flexibility! Peace, Love and Photography!- Lottie
