So, I want to show off these awesome photos…. Not only because this guy is great looking but because my Apprentice, Crystal, took them. Crystal graduated in December from Old Dominion University with a degree in photography. Her portfolio is filled with amazing lifestyle and individual portraits, which is why I knew she would rock this entire shoot. After her apprenticing is over, I plan on keeping her. She has many talents with the camera and on the computer. Look forward to much more amazing more from Crystal in the future.
Amber and Brian are getting married at the Southport Marina in June of this year. I was so glad they wanted to do their engagement photos up there so I would get the chance to check out the area. Amber is a Special Education teacher at Forest Brook Elementary School and Brian does marine research for Coastal Carolina University. They are such a fun couple and we had a blast doing these photos. Southport is the most quaint little Fishing town where the movie Safe Haven was filmed and it was easy to see why they chose this place for their big day. Soon I get the chance to shoot Amber’s bridal portraits up there. Can hardly wait.
There is so much to do when planning your wedding day, from picking out your dress to what foods you and your guests are going to enjoy, but one important thing you cannot leave out of your big moment is your flowers. From bouquets and boutonnieres to table centerpieces and cake toppers, Greenskeeper Florist does it all. Located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, Greenskeeper Florist’s Denise Leonard is there to personalize your flowers that will surely capture your true personalities. I have done several weddings with them over the past 10 years, and each wedding is unique from the rest.
I had such a fun time photographing Harley and Miles last night. Miles tied his own tie and was so proud. It looked great. These two are such unique kids that are involved in so much. They do karate, Hip Hop, hunting, Music.. you name it. Their mom is a great photographer friend in town and we did a “kid swap.” We went out and got some fun shots of each other’s children at an abandoned golf course near my house. Most kids of photographers are better with other people than their own parents for a full shoot. I know My Kelsey gets tired of me real fast. :) Stephanie Necessary of Necessary Photography posted a great sneak peek of Kelsey and it was beautiful. I can hardly wait to see the rest of hers. I know they will be impressive.
Pawleys Plantation has always been one of my favorite places to photograph weddings in the area. Sitting in the heart of Pawleys Island, SC, the golf and country club is a great place for making anyone’s special day memorable. Last year in 2014, I had the privilege of photographing seven amazing weddings there, making new friends along the way. Pawleys Plantation always has a great staff to work with and beautiful scenery to enjoy. The food there is top notch at every event, and I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the best vendors in the area. Best of all, it is always a pleasure to work with the wonderful event coordinator, Yuani Valentine.
