Spartanburg Wedding Photography at The Duncan Estate

Valentina + Jeff


The Duncan Estate Wedding Photos


Spartanburg, South Carolina

The Duncan estate is always a great place to photograph a wedding.  Spartanburg wedding photographers know that this wedding venue has it all – a historic mansion, multiple locations for getting ready, an easy-to-photograph reception area, and a lot of greenery for wedding photos.  When combined together, this just means more and more variety for wedding photos than you can usually find in Spartanburg.  Now when you add in a couple like Jeff and Valentina, who bring their own unique differences, and you have the recipe for something truly unique.  Valentina with her Russian family and culture making an impact all throughout the day, and Jeff with his love for his amazing Porsche (Sorry Valentina!) which made an appearance during their couple’s photos later – This couple really had it all.  And for once, the weather even cooperated – it was a sign of things to come for sure.  And what to come was an amazingly beautiful, diverse wedding celebration with just the right mix of culture, tradition, non-tradition, charm, and of course…love.

Check below for some of my favorite photos from Jeff and Valentina’s Spartanburg SC wedding at The Duncan Estate!

Valentina and Jeff had a rather unique “First Look” scheduled, and I always love watching such a happy couple see themselves for the first time in a non-hectic setting.  This really allows them to relax and focus on what is truly important – themselves and their love for each other.  Afterwards we went straight into some more couple’s photos, and then their ceremony.

I always enjoy it when couples do their traditional first dances in a scenic, outdoor location.  We were really lucky that the stormy weather had held off that day, which allowed them to enjoy this memorable setting for their reception.

Southern charm, Russian heritage, and fast cars – Jeff and Valentina’s Duncan Estate wedding had it all.  Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you for allowing me to experience your day alongside you and your guests!
