  • Many Thanks!!!

  • MANY THANKS to Rebecca & Richard, seen here with the happy bride and holding their new son, for recommending us to Jennifer & Vic. We photographed Rebecca & Richard's wedding at St. Luke's Chapel in September of '06. I consider personal referrals like this to be the HIGHEST compliment we could ever [...]
  • The Bahamas

  • Cami and I actually honeymooned in The Bahamas when we got married in '95. So it was WONDERFUL to be back. After photographing Jennifer & Vic's wedding, we stayed a couple extra days...enjoying the time together and photographing some of the beautiful scenery around the island. Enjoy!
  • Jennifer & Vic in THE BAHAMAS

  • What an AWESOME privilege it was to be a part of Jennifer & Vic's Destination Wedding in The Bahamas! They'd asked Cami & I to photograph a very special Eastern Ceremony the night before the wedding. When our flight was delayed due to mechanical issues, we started sweatin' it a bit. But everything [...]
  • Chrissie Zartman

  • This past summer, I was lucky enough to be the official photographer of the AVP Charleston Open professional beach volleyball tournament. Several of my images were picked up by Sports Illustrated for an article they wrote about Chrissie Zartman. Well, the AVP has also written a story about her, us[...]
  • Kate & Ryan

  • Kate & Ryan's wedding day started out with her getting ready at historic Charleston Place. Once she was ready to go, she and Ryan shared their "First Glance" together in a private suite. They embraced, she told him how excited she was that their big day had arrived, and he let her know how absolute[...]
  • Perspective

  • It's been several weeks since I've had a chance to write on the Blog. Cami & I have just been SLAMMED with the "Christmas Rush". But I'll get back to update you soon on some REALLY COOL events we've photographed recently! In the meantime, Norma Mackenzie, an old friend from my high-school days at TA[...]
  • Corporate Marketing

  • I met Mark & Patricia through my good friend Sean Templeton, who I play tennis with. They were looking to put together some new, top-of-the-line marketing material for their real estate company. The agency they decided to use was Hobbs Herder. And they selected US to create the photography. Once[...]
  • The Art Institute of Charleston

  • The Art Institute of Charleston had their Grand Opening Gala last week with appropriate fanfare. As a photographer, seeing a creative institution like A.I. open a new branch in my hometown is very exciting. Thanks to the referral from my good friend and fellow photographer, Gary Coleman, I had the [...]
  • Ashley & Jeremy

  • Ashley & Jeremy couldn't have timed their wedding any better, as cooler fall weather finally rolled in to Charleston last weekend for their BEAUTIFUL outdoor affair at Middleton Place! Ashley wore a STUNNING wedding gown with deep red accents that matched her bridesmaids' dresses and was accentuated[...]
  • A Ten-Year-Old in a Grown Man's Body

  • Whenever I'm goofing off or get a little too excited about the little things in life, Cami is fond of saying "you're just a ten-year-old in a grown man's body!" :-) I actually take it as a compliment since I believe it's important to maintain one's joi-de-vive and enjoy each new day like the gift th[...]
  • Lowcountry Housing Trust

  • I've just wrapped up shooting on a really cool project for the Lowcountry Housing Trust. It was really neat to meet all kinds of interesting folks...the "next door neighbors" of Charleston. I also got to work with two AMAZING ladies...Tammy Hoy and Michelle Mapp. As a bonus, the Art Designer on t[...]
  • Sarah & Tom

  • Tom & Sarah came to Charleston MONTHS ago for their Engagement Session. We had so much fun and got the coolest shots along the beach...that I just KNEW their wedding day was going to be BLAST! I wasn't mistaken...Their wedding was at the beautiful and historic First Baptist Church, downtown. Sar[...]
