  • 68th Senior PGA Championships

  • I had the privilege last week of photographing the 68th Senior PGA Championships for the Charleston Metro Sports Council. Having never photographed professional golf before, starting out by covering one of the BIGGEST events with some of the BEST senior players on the tour was like jumping into the [...]
  • A Gesture of Appreciation

  • I just love Cami for her big heart! She quietly slips out of the house three times a week to go read to a kind older lady in our church who is home-bound, doesn't have much family in the area, and hardly gets any visitors. Over the years, they've developed a friendship that is special to both of t[...]
  • Fun in the Sun

  • Cami & I went to visit her parents and her brother for Mother's Day weekend. After a nice brunch, her brother, Scott, took Mojo (his dog), Henry (our dog), Cami, and myself out for a ride in the boat. On the way back, Came grabbed this shot of Mojo, all wet and smelly, trying to get some lovin' from[...]
  • A Colorful Affair

  • I'm such a SUCKER for bright colors! And Jenni & Jeremy's wedding last weekend was so full of bright, cheerful colors that I was like a kid in a CANDY store. OK...enough with the puns about the lollipops in the last image! :-) I also had an extra boost of fun getting to meet and work with Valerie, [...]
  • MUSC Hooding Ceremony

  • The "Hooding Ceremony" for MUSC's College of Health Professions has become an annual event which I thoroughly enjoy photographing! It's so neat to see all these young people achieve their dreams and embark on a new adventure in their lives. After sitting through the ceremony and posing for all th[...]
  • Society of Industrial Realtors

  • Last week, I had the privilege of photographing a very elite group of Realtors in the Charleston area. The Society of Industrial Realtors is THE leading professional commercial and industrial real estate association in the world! With more than 3,100 members in 480 cities in 20 countries, SIOR repr[...]
  • Summerville Charm

  • Jen & Luke's wedding last week was characterized by the charm of the beautiful little city in which it was held. St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a delightful place to get married, full of history and romance. The tall white columns, red brick walkways, and huge arched windows make for a very picture[...]
  • An Artist, her Dog, and their Kitchen

  • Signature Kitchens & Baths is one of our favorite longtime clients. The designs and quality installations Jim and Linda McLain and their staff come up with are truly works of architectural art in themselves! A few days ago, Linda asked me to photograph this kitchen they had totally redone for Mary W[...]
  • My Big Beautiful Greek Wedding

  • This weekend I had the distinct PRIVILEGE of photographing Alex & Chris' wedding at the picturesque Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. Actually, the REAL festivities started the night before when I photographed the fantastic Rehearsal Dinner Party at the Carolina Yacht Club. Then the next day afte[...]
  • Get Pumped

  • I've always admired how Dinara Safina plays tennis with such INTENSITY and FOCUS every single time she steps on the court! I took this shot during her defeat of Lourdes Dominguez Lino at the Family Circle Cup earlier this year. I was reminded of her determination during a particularly difficult ma[...]
  • Beautiful Book Worm

  • When our friends, Karen & Carl, called to ask if I'd create portraits of their three children, I was delighted. They have the most ADORABLE children you can imagine! We did the entire session in and around their sprawling property on John's Island. As usual, I arranged to do the shoot during Magi[...]
  • Kelly & Aaron

  • Talk about a true Southern Plantation Style wedding! Kelly & Aaron were boyfriend/girlfriend back in the 8th grade. After loosing touch for a while, they got back together several years ago...is that FATE?!? Aaron proposed to Kelly on the new Arthur Ravanel Jr. Bridge. So Kelly and I had a fun time[...]
