Wysheka + Clarissa | Harborbide East Charleston LGBTQ Wedding

Rainy Wedding Day at Harborside East in Charleston, SC

If rain on your wedding day symbolizes good luck, what does it mean if the sky falls through during a torrential downpour? However the tale goes, Wysheka and Clarissa had a fabulous Charleston destination wedding.

Both brides, alumnae of Clemson University, exchanged hand-written, heart-warming vows after moving their ceremony indoors with their supportive guests.

Congratulations to Mrs. & Mrs. Austin! May your union be just as beautiful as the two of you uniquely are.

Amartha + Charles | Nigerian and Panamanian Wedding at 701 Whaley in Columbia, SC

For the Cultures: Nigerian-Panamanian Wedding

When Amartha and Charles described their dreams for their wedding they wanted to be fun and uniquely who they are. Incorporating their Nigerian (Amartha) and Panamanian (Charles) roots through the attire, music, and food, everyone undoubtedly felt their electric energy as a couple throughout the night. The rain held off at their 701 Whaley wedding venue for a beautiful ceremony.

Thank you, Amartha, Charles, family, and friends near and far (guests came from as far as London and Nigeria!) for a joyous evening!

Old Cigar Warehouse Wedding in Greenville, SC | Sarah + Derek

Old Cigar Warehouse | Greenville, SC

For Sarah and Derek, simplicity in the essentials was all they needed to make their wedding day a treat. When Sarah reached out to me, she let me know that she loved the fact that I am an inclusive photographer who shoots all couples, no matter how they look or who they love. I instantly knew we'd be a great fit.

The wedding took place at popular, Old Cigar Warehouse in Downtown Greenville, SC. Sarah and Derek wasted no time in displaying their philosophy of love, by entering the ceremony TOGETHER, hand in hand.

The night was full of line dancing, plenty of cake eating, and a great time with close family, friends, and Furman University alumni.

Cheers to Sarah and Derek on their wedding day and many anniversaries to come!

Special shout out to the vendors for their wedding:

Planning/Coordination: Christina Alsip of Lovely Ever Afters

Venue: Old Cigar Warehouse

The Journey Southward | Greenville, SC

Alix & Ryan, both natives of New York State, grew up not too far from each other. But it wasn't until they met in Greenville, SC at Soby's Restaurant that they became friends and eventually partners.

Affirmations To Avoid Stress and Find Calm on Your Wedding Day

Affirmations To Avoid Stress and Find Calm on Your Wedding Day

Stress is the #1 uninvited guest to a wedding day. After months of planning and gathering order, even the best of us might find nerves and stress creeping into our day of celebration. Through meditation with Black Mom's Guide to Calm, I've learned to acknowledge the distracting thoughts, let them go, then return focus to what matters most.

Try this practice when you find yourself becoming overwhelmed on your wedding day, whether you're dealing with overbearing family members, stressing over the timeline, or trying to keep your heart inside your chest from sheer nerves. I've compiled a list of positive affirmations to avoid stress and help you find calm on your wedding day.

Enjoy!

I only attract good vibrations on my special day.

The power of love will make my day perfect.

I trust my vendors will be at their best.

-- A Sunrise Media Group

I inhale peace and exhale overwhelm.

I focus on the thoughts that bring me peace and joy.

I let my worries go so I can be here for the beauty that surrounds me now.

-- Black Mom's Guide to Calm

All I need to do right now is breathe.

My need to feel calm is being fully met.

I discover peace in those around me and respond to them with peace.

-- Spirituality Health

I am relaxed and full of energy and inner strength under all circumstances.

All unnecessary thoughts are leaving my mind now, letting me experience inner peace.

All worries and anxieties are leaving my mind, making space for calmness and peace.

-- Look Within You

All is well. Right here. Right now.

I connect with the comforting silence of my Soul.

I radiate peace and love to others, helping them to be in a state of peace and love.

{un}convention RVA: A Feminist Wedding Conference by Catalyst Wedding Co

{un}convention RVA: A Feminist Wedding Conference by Catalyst Wedding Co

Finding {un}convention

Last August in 2016, I wrote a passionate article about why spaces dedicated to people of color only exist. It was a response to witnessing the policing of black voices in an online forum where the safest bet was to silence the complaints, rather than address the problem at hand. From that debacle, a black woman photographer took it upon herself to create another online group that invited creatives with values of intersectional feminism, diversity, inclusivity, and tolerance for people of all races, religions (or lack thereof), and creeds. As the conversations began in the new space, photographer Carly Romeo shared that there was an upcoming conference in Richmond, VA called {un}convention "for wedding space disrupters", sponsored by Catalyst Wedding Co.

About Catalyst Wedding Co

I hopped at the opportunity to attend the conference. Richmond was just a quick flight and never before had I been to a professional conference where values were the common theme that united its attendees. Catalyst Wedding Co provides a print magazine and online resources for "feminists, the LGBT community, and woke folk".

Catalyst's Mission: Our aspiration is to increase diverse representation in wedding media and to engage in critical dialogue about love, sex, marriage, and weddings. We seek to empower our community of readers and business owners to bring race, gender, sexuality, class, bodies, and more into the conversation.

Since attending the conference I have come to know, love, and respect the Catalyst team. Liz, Carly, and Jen are doing a phenomenal job in uplifting the voices of people of color on their platform and connecting us.

Catalyst featured me here on their Woke Wednesday series.

My own Woodlands Treehouse styled shoot was featured on Catalyst here.

{un}convention RVA 2016

unconvention lgbt feminist wedding conference latoya dixon photography

{un}convention was held in the beautiful Quirk Hotel. Even in my late evening arrival, I could see why-- it was beautiful. A designer's masterpiece, a photographer's dream. The conference kicked off with a panel from creatives and other wedding professionals that discussed the turning tides of inclusivity in the wedding industry and how we can assist in being catalysts of that change. Following the panel was a keynote pep talk by Kelley Raye. Our workshops in the afternoon included brand critiques, a DIY class to create our own essential oil blend, and headshots by Tiffany Josephs Photography. After a full day of connecting with the attendees, we were treated to a gorgeous styled shoot designed by Wood Grain and Lace. 

 

In fact, here's the entire creative team:

Florals | Amanda Burnette Flowers

Desserts | Sweet Fix

Paper Goods | Carly Reed Designs

Rentals & Signage | Paisley and Jade

Hair & Make Up | Vero V Judith

Fall, Mountainside Wedding at Sugarboo Farms | Sasha & Maya

same sex wedding photographer greenville south carolina latoya dixon photography
"May y'all stay together as long as the ride here was."

This too is my wish for Sasha & Maya. Although the ride to Sugarboo Farms was only a winding, 3 hours,  it was undeniably worth it. It was only right that the outdoor lovers and avid travelers who got engaged over campfire sealed their union at one of their favorite places. What was unique about this wedding was that even upon arrival, all hands were on deck to prep for the big day. Both family and friends joined in to not only celebrate, but ensure that this day was everything Sasha & Maya could have dreamed it to be. I particularly loved the rustic details, the eggplant bridesmaids dresses, and monogrammed mason glasses. 

Married life also came with a little bit of fame as one of Maya & Sasha's wedding photos was featured in the Huffington Post. You can find it here (#16!).

Many thanks to the wonderful vendors, family members, and friends who made this day one to remember:

Intimate Beach Wedding Styled Shoot | Folly Beach, SC

Intimate Beach Wedding Styled Shoot | Folly Beach, SC

My group, The Queen PhotograpHERs of SC (QPSC), was treated back in March with an intimate beach wedding styled shoot and workshop planned by one of our members, Sirena White, of Aneris Photography, in Folly Beach, SC.  QPSC is comprised of women of color photographers across the state of SC whose aim is to provide a network and internal resource so that female photographers of color of any levels of expertise can share best practices, ask questions, plan meetups, network and most of all grow.  

Sirena volunteered to host us and after several weeks of hard work in planning, securing vendors and speakers for our workshops, #QPSCTakesCharleston was underway.

The first day was comprised of an intimate beach wedding styled shoot. Our trek to the Morris Island Lighthouse on Folly Beach was a bit windy, hence all of us ladies bundled up below. However, the sun was out, the model's make up was done, and we were ready to get down to business!

The camaraderie of all the ladies involved, including the vendors who showed up to secure the details made the shoot even better than I could imagine.  What truly made the difference was realizing how we each needed each other (even with 12 photographers), from lugging the desserts and rental pieces, to setting up the florals, from arranging the beach tablescape to tearing it all back down at the end of the day.  The new friendships we built to go along with the pretty photographs is priceless.

Renee & Brandon's Vow Renewal PART 2 | Columbia, SC Wedding Photographer

The week before my 26th birthday, I was gifted a film camera by a work friend who had officially moved on to digital and no longer had an interest in film photography. How timely this gift was. The following images are shot that same camera, a Canon Elan 7 using consumer-grade film, Fujifilm Superia 400H. This was my first time shooting film for a client, but Brandon and Renee's intimate backyard vow renewal provided the best details to do it. 

Scans by The FIND Lab.

Love Brandon and Renee's vow renewal photos? Let them know in the comments below.

If you or a friend are in need of a photographer for your engagement, wedding, proposal, or vow renewal, feel free to share with me! Contact me at info@latoyadixon.com.
