I had the pleasure of shooting a styled photo shoot with some great vendors recently at the Cooper House In Socastee, South Carolina. Kelly from Gigi Noelle and Denise from the Greenskeeper Florist in Pawleys Island came up with this look for Spring and I was there to capture it. I had a great time and enjoyed working with Cupcakes By Cravingley’s, ate some great food from Creative Catering and loved the hair on the girls done by Salon & Spa 18. And did I mention our daughter is the Junior Bridesmaid?
I finally get to post these photos of Leigh Ann that I have been keeping a secret for way too long. I drove out to Florence and fell in love with the setting all around The Columns as soon as I pulled in the long, tree lined, driveway.
I spent the slow time this winter coming up with new products, new albums sizes and new packaging to really bring my business up a notch. Photos to come of my new packaging but for now here is the new 5×7 handout I will be sharing with potential clients.

Today I woke up at 5am, packed the car and drove in the dark into Conway to W.A.R.M. which stands for the Waccamaw Animal Rescue Mission. There I was met by Julie, the director who thought we were all a bit nuts for doing this. Julie has such an amazing passion for all the animals that she rescues and was a total pleasure to hang out with for the morning. Joining me and styling the shoot was Sara Wise, an event planner with The Bride’s Maid. Summer, our crazy bride came ready to get dirty. Crazy is the best way to describe Summer since I can’t say that I would have done half the stuff she did for this shoot. Besides the fact that it was in the low thirties, she rolled around in a swamp with freezing cold (not so clean) water. We had a lot planned for the pigs but they weren’t very social so it seemed like the Alpaca’s and goats were out best friends for the day. A big thanks to Reilly and Tyler from the Academy for the Arts, Science and Technology who got up extrememly early on a Saturday to help out. They were the beast goat repellers and lighting experts. Our little Tea Party with the animals wouldn’t have been so colorful and deliscious if it weren’t for the yummy cupcakes from The Pawleys Island Bakery and the Beautiful flowers from the Greenskeeper Florist of Pawleys Island. Thank you everyone for all the teamwork and FUN!

Meredith was pretty hesitant to trash her dress when I first asked her about 6 months ago. I guess that’s all she needed was some time to go by to change her mind, and I am so glad she did…….. to be honest, I begged her to do it. Meredith is such a fun girl and to get her to pose “sexy” like this was hilarious. I have more out takes of her cracking up then anything. Thanks to her mom for walking around and holding lights for me. And the Pool was freezing, she had to catch her breath before we could continue. What a great sport. Thanks Meredith!
We met up with Whitney, her mom, and her maid of honor at Huntington State Park tonight for some bridal shots. I was assured that the groom would NOT see these photos, so I am excited to show off Whitney in her dress. They get married on March 19th in Litchfield and we are really looking forward to a great event.
A beautiful ceremony held at the Surfside Baptist church was followed by a great reception at the Tera Ballroom in Litchfield. Brittany looked amazing, the flowers were perfect and the cake was beautiful. Here are some photos of Brittany’s bridal session followed by the main event
Nicole and Patrick are getting married on October 16th. It’s going to be an amazing celebration with tons of beautiful details and Tru Sol to rock the night away. I met Nicole, along with her Mom, Aunt, and grandparents, at Huntington State park for some birdal portraits. They came out beautiful. Nicole is a georgeous bride with a glow about her when she puts on her dress. I can’t show any photos that show her dress so I chose this one so Patrick could see a little sneak peek before the wedding. See you guys in a month.
Traci, originally from Alabama, was at one point a local celebrity on the news. Channel 13. Now she has a more important job as a stay at home mother Traci has been married for some time now and her and her husband have an adorable five year old son. He’s cute asleep anyways. He was sleeping in the car the entire time we took photos. Kindergarten takes a lot out of a kid these days. We took these photos just for the fun of it tonight and then Traci got into her street clothes for some pictures with her husband Gregory. Don’t worry, we were about ten feet from the car with sleeping child in it for those shots. The georgous bouquet was provided by The Greenskeeper florist of Pawleys Island. Thank you, by the way.
Isn’t she a beautiful bride? As soon as I saw Meredith pull up in the car I knew we were going to have a great session. We made our way around Wachesaw Plantation with the help of her mom. (thanks for helping with the lighting Rhoda) Meredith gets married in May at the Litchfield Country Club and I can hardly wait.
Wow, Summer is such a georgous bride. Her mom and best friend carried lights around for me for a couple hours as I took a few hundred shots of Summer around Litchfield Plantation. Thanks by the way for the help. I had the hardest time choosing only a few to put on here. Again, what a beautiful bride. Can’t wait til 10-24-09. P.S. I landed on a rock when I fell off the chair trying to show you that pose.
I took April to Market Commons to do some bridal shots. It was very crowded so not the easiest place to shoot tonight. April sure turned heads from all the shoppers and people dining outside. It was a lot of fun.
I can’t wait to photograph the wedding of the beautiful Ashley and her man Tim. (who happens to look like Tim McGraw by the way) They are calling it official on July 18th at the Atalaya Castle. Can’t really name a more perfect setting to get married. Tonights photo session was so easy thanks to the great mother of the bride Donna. Thanks for you help with the lights.
