2021: Grateful | Spartanburg Photographer | Greenville Photographer

Y’all!!! How is it already the end of 2021?! While this year flew by, I took some time to really reflect on some of the best things that happened for Kendra Martin Photography

I LOVE what I do. It’s a true honor to get to work with so many wonderful people. 

I am so thankful for every couple and every family I’ve had the joy of photographing this year. 

I am grateful for all of the couples and their vendors that I’ve had the pleasure of working with for the past 2-3 years as we all navigated rescheduled and postponed weddings from 2020 and 2021. 

And I’m so honored that some of my clients love and trust me so much that they have recommended me to their loved ones. And then every single person embraces me like I’m a part of their family. #CueAlltheEmotionalTears

With a whirlwind of a year, I thought it would be fun to recap some of 2021 with all of you.

By the Numbers

In 2021, I photographed:

  • 30 weddings (of all shapes and sizes)
  • 3 Rehearsal Dinners
  • 14 Engagement Sessions
  • 3 Proposals
  • 13 Senior Sessions
  • 4 Maternity Sessions
  • 44 Family Sessions
  • 5 “Just Because”/Headshot Sessions
  • 5 Bridal Sessions
  • 5 Lifestyle Newborn Sessions
  • 3 Event Details
  • 1 Styled Shoot

By Location

In 2021, I was able to travel to so many beautiful, cool places in both North and South Carolina. 

In South Carolina, I photographed in:

  • Greenville
  • Spartanburg
  • Columbia
  • Clemson
  • Beaufort
  • Harbor Island
  • Anderson
  • Lake Keowee
  • Fort Mill

In North Carolina, I visited and photographed in:

  • Hendersonville
  • Flat Rock
  • Clyde
  • Asheville
  • Raleigh
  • Maiden
  • Charlotte
  • Lake Lure

I’ve said it before—and I will say it again—but I am deeply grateful I get to do what I do. To be able to capture some of the most touching, memorable moments for people is a gift I never want to take for granted. To be able to continue on as a family photographer for couples who hired me to shoot their wedding is incredibly touching.

This whole “gig” is, and always will be, something I am humbled to be able to do. Thank you for trusting me with your legacy of photos!
