  • Videographer Extraordinaire

  • Bill Nixon of http://www.coastalvideography.com/ is one of my favorite videographers to work with! He has an AMAZING vision and definitely loves what he does ALMOST as much as I love what I do! :-) We always have a great time together. So when I arrived at Josh & Erin's wedding and saw him getting o[...]
  • Just Erin

  • Erin and I had a really neat time getting to know each other and getting to work together a few weeks ago. We arranged to meet at historic Boone Hall Plantation for me to create some memorable Bridal Portraits for her. They ALL came out AWESOME...but this was one of my favorites. :-)See the rest [...]
  • Erin & Josh

  • After about six years together, Erin & Josh FINALLY tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at Alhambra Hall. I met up with Erin and her girls at The Old Village Post House, where Josh had proposed to Erin months before, where she was getting ready for her Big Day, and where she and Josh would spend[...]
  • Charleston's Finest Chefs

  • I've been working on a really neat project with the Charleston Regional Business Journal to photograph some of Charleston's FINEST Chefs. The story will include some of their favorite holiday recipes. Here are a few of the images that I really enjoyed creating. The first one is of Fred Neuville [...]
  • Something Special

  • When Jessica & Paul were planning the photography for their wedding day, they decided they didn't want a traditional Bridal Session or Engagement Session. Instead, they wanted something special! So when I showed them photos from a previous Trash-the-Dress session, it clicked. So the day after the[...]
  • Jessica & Paul

  • Jessica is this sweet "California Girl" that I absolutely LOVE to death! Paul is this suave, studly "Firefighter Dude" full of romantic charm. They compliment each other PERFECTLY!!! :-) Their wedding was held at St. Luke's Chapel...one of my favorite little chapels here in the Holy City. The e[...]
  • As most of you know, I'm the Official Photographer of the Family Circle Cup Tennis Championships. But I'm also a huge tennis fan and love to play the game! One of the local USTA teams I play on won our city league earlier this summer and got to compete in the State Championships this weekend. On top[...]
  • Leigh & Matt

  • It may have been sprinkling that afternoon, but Leigh & Matt's personalities have a strong polarity towards the positive...so their spirits weren't dampened ONE BIT! I really think that says a lot about these two. Their love for each other and their EXCITEMENT about finally being together just wasn[...]

Today I had the privilege of photographing Eric Schweitzer of Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart.Their firm is one of[...]
  • Jessica & Avery

  • Following all the fun from the previous evening at their Rehearsal Dinner Party, I wasn't a BIT surprised at how DELICIOUS Jessica & Avery's Big Day was! I use that adjective with great purpose because the scenic beauty surrounding their wedding day was like eye-candy to me. I was gleefully captu[...]
  • Rehearsal Dinner Party

  • Although I'm asked to photograph quite a few Rehearsal Dinner Party's, images from the "Main Event" often trump photos from the "Day Before". But Jessica & Avery's Rehearsal Dinner Party was something special so I wanted to share a few with you.The Rehearsal itself was a very fun, relaxed affair..[...]
  • Bridal Portrait

  • Since most brides-to-be don't want their fiance to see their wedding gown before the Big Day, I rarely get a chance to showcase any Bridal Portraits for fear that the groom-to-be might go peaking on our website. So today I thought I'd just post a few of my favorite Bridal Portraits from recent sessi[...]
