  • Terri & Bryan

  • Terri & Bryan were about the most easy going, laid back couple I have EVER met! It's such a TREAT for me when a bride and groom's personalities so closely match my own. On top of THAT, Terri is about as big a dog-lover as Cami is. :-) So we all just had a BALL together!!!Terri got ready at the [...]
  • Deb & Michael

  • Although Deb & Michael's wedding and reception were at the same locations as last weekend's wedding, it was totally UNIQUE in EVERY way! This just goes to prove my theory that each wedding takes on a life and personality all it's own. That's what I LOVE about what I do. I may cover 50 weddings a[...]
  • Pete Sampras vs. Jim Courier Miracle Match

  • Since someone we know has recently been diagnosed with cancer, I thought it was neat that Cami and I got hired to photograph the Pete Sampras vs. Jim Courier exhibition tennis match benefiting the Miracle Match Foundation and the MUSC Children's Hospital. The event was held at the North Charleston C[...]
  • A Trio of 200s

  • As a member of NPS (Nikon Professional Services), Nikon occasionally loans me their latest products to try out. This weekend they sent me the AMAZING new AFS Nikkor 200mm f2.0 with Vibration Reduction technology. Affectionately known as the "Fat Boy" among pro circles, you can see why in this compar[...]
  • Reflections in the Waves

  • Tara & Matt contacted me from out of town about photographing an Engagement Session for them. Recently engaged, they were VERY MUCH in love. :-) This was one of my favorite images from the session because of the intimate embrace, the serene expression on Tara's face, and their reflection in the g[...]
  • Faith

  • Faith is a longtime client, friend, and kindred spirit of mine. She's an account administrator for Marsh Management Services. She ALSO bakes AMAZING made-from-scratch cookies! I took this shot of her while I was at their office photographing head-shots of their executives. Doesn't she look like a yo[...]
  • Danielle & Keith

  • Danielle & Keith were my DREAM BRIDE & GROOM! I was talking to Eddie "L" (their incredible DJ) at the end of the reception and we both agreed that they were two of the nicest people we'd ever worked with!To start the day off, I photographed Keith and his "entourage" at the Dunes West Country Club w[...]
  • An EXCLUSIVE with Mr. President

  • WOW! It's not often in one's life that someone can say "I met the most powerful figure in the free world". However I have been BLESSED with just such an honor!After going through scrutiny and eventual approval by the Secret Service, I was hired by an organization called The First Tee to photograph [...]
  • 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 [...]
