What a beautiful wedding! The ceremony took place at The Beaufort Inn, in Beaufort, SC with wedding party portraits underneath the historic oaks, rooted among Bay Street's waterfront. While the bride, Caraline Tompkins and her bridal party braved the fiddler crabs and sticks, their laughter filled the air as we waited for the groom; George Place to make his way down to us for the "First Look!"
Their families were an amazing group to work with, and the reception was one of my favorites to be a part of! The dance floor never left empty, and families embraced their new connection. Old friends and family united in celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Place. I wish you many years of Love and Luck! - Lottie Campenella, Dormant Gypsy Photography

1. They Don’t Beg For Attention
I'm not crazy about "attention" but I demand to be important. I don't need oooooh's and ahhhhhh's to be validated, however, I like positive feedback on all that I create, so I know I'm keeping up with everyone else re: photography.
2. They Don’t Allow Others To Bring Them Down
Nope, I refuse.
3. They Don’t Hold Grudges
I am guilty of this. Sorry~
4. They Never Stop Doing Their Own Thing
I am definitely too driven to stop doing what I like.
5. They Never Stop Believing In Themselves
I believe, I believe!
6. They Don’t Act Like Bitches Or Assh*les
I can come off as a bitch, only because I do not allow myself to be as accessible to everyone. Nothing I do is meant to be hateful or hurtful.
7. They Know Better Than To Let Just Anyone Into Their Lives
8. They Aren’t Afraid To Love
I love me some love. I do however have problems with showing weakness...
9. They Don’t Lie In Bed Dreading The Day Ahead Of Them
I don't dread the day, it just hurts to get moving some mornings~ Or I don't know where to start...always lots to do, I if I do lie in bed, it's ignoring it, not dreading it :)
10. They’re Not Afraid Of Slowing Down
This is a tough one... there is just so much of the world to see, experience, learn, so I work a lot so I can travel a lot. I don't want to fall victim, always need a way to move forward.
11. They Don’t Do Things They Don’t Want To Do
Well sometimes we have to do a little bit of compromising, but over all, no if I don't want to, I won't.
12. They Have No Problem Saying “No”
I have no problem saying no
13. They Don’t “Forget” To Give Back
I always give back more than I get
14. They Don’t Feel The Need To Fit In
Nope- definitely not guilty of this. I'm the one that has to live with me and where I see myself "fitting" in...I don't like to live by other peoples rules and expectations.
15. They Don’t Forget That Happiness Is A Decision
You're right it is. We all have good days as well as some bad days...don't let the bad days keep you down :)
Travel more, experience more- the world lives differently than you do, always have an open mind.

Lottie did an amazing job for my June 16 th wedding. It was outside, hot as can be and she still managed to make everything look great. She set up a photo booth which was a huge hit and the pictures turned out amazing. She also made signs and went above and beyond to help me with everything. The pictures were natural cause we didn't want a lot of posed pictures and they turned out great. If I had to do all over again I would choose her as my photographer a hundred times over . Thanks for making our day so memorable.

I am so happy we decided to have photos taken of our newborn daughter. I wasn't very specific about what sort of photos I wanted, but I loved the set up and style of the photos Lottie chose to do for us. She was very enjoyable to be around, and we received our pictures very quickly! There are so many great shots to choose from that it's hard for me to pick which pictures to have printed! She is an amazing photographer who I can't wait to use again!
