This week, we are honored to be part of a hand-picked team of photographers, led by our friend and fearless leader Alice Keeney, who will be covering the much anticipated inaugural TEDx talks in Charleston!!!
What a delightful young lady Jenny was! We had great time yesterday…exploring Boone Hall Plantation, then zipping over to the beach at Sullivan’s Island during her Senior Portrait Session. CONGRATULATIONS, Jenny! CofC will be lucky to have you!!!
It’s always sad to see an era come to an end. But my heart is glad to know that the end of an era marks the beginning of a NEW one!
Last weekend, the last of the three Rowland sisters tied the knot with her kind and gentle rock-star, Nick. It’s been many years since I photographed her sister Meagan’s wedding. What an honor it has been, getting to know the Rowland family over these years!!! And now that Meagan, Micah, and Mallory are married…they are embarking on their own journeys and starting their own families.
Mallory & Nick were married at the incredibly picturesque Holy Spirit Catholic Church on John’s Island, where her uncle, Msgr. Rowland, performed the nuptials. It was a beautuful and meaningful service, joined by close friends and family.
Their reception…or should I say PARTAAAY…was held at the James Island Yacht Club. I love the dramatic views of Charleston Harbor that the club has! So after partying, dancing, dining, and toasting the evening away…Mallory & Nick snuck out to the shoreline for some dramatic photos with my assistant, Chrissy, and I. It was a crazy stormy day…which worked out perfect for the photos I had in mind. Since Nick & Mallory are huge movie buffs like I am, I wanted something cinamatic for them. The stormy clouds and whipping winds were just what we needed!
CONGRATULATIONS Mallory & Nick! May the 4th be with you!!!
We always LOVE personal referrals!!!
So when Pam called and told me the Andersons had given them our name, I was so excited. I’ve been photographing the Anderson family for YEARS…they’re like family to us!!!
Well, it looks like we’ve got ourselves another favorite family to add to that list! I absolutely LOVED working with the Jones family yesterday. They are such a wonderful, down-to-earth, easy-going bunch. It was so much fun getting to know them, finding about their kid’s passions and pleasures, and discovering new areas of this old plantation together.
THANK YOU, Pam & Matt! You guys have a beautiful family…what an honor to hang out with you for an evening!
I always feel extra blessed when I truly feel like I’m a part of a really special family! Having photographed Mallory’s sister’s wedding, which was one of my favorites that year, I was truly honored when the Rowlands called us early on, to say Mallory wanted me to be a part of their family again for her wedding!
Here’s one of my favorites from her Bridal Shoot here in our studio. Congratulations Mallory & Nick! Wedding photos are coming soon!!!
Yesterday was Erin & Rette’s AMAZING wedding celebration. This morning I’m still chuckling over how they practically JUMPED into each other’s arms for a long embrace before her Uncle Rick could get the words “You may k……..” out of his mouth!
Here’s one of my favorite shots from Erin’s beautiful Bridal Shoot at Boone Hall Plantation…along with a fun behind-the-scenes photo of her Mom helping hold a kicker light.
Photographers KNOW how to have fun!
I’m always humbled when fellow photographers ask me to photograph their weddings. Jay is an amazing and gifted photographer friend of mine from Columbia. Check him out at www.picassoperfectphotography.com. So when he and Melissa asked me to be their photographer…I was SUPER excited!
Their engagement session a couple days ago has to be one of the most fun I’ve had in a long time! Collaborating with fellow artists, merging their ideas and concepts with mine, and working together to come up with some really fun and unique images was pure pleasure for me.
CONGRATULATIONS Jay & Melissa! I can’t wait for Melissa’s Bridal Shoot. And I’m certainly looking forward to being there for you on your amazing wedding day!!!
One of my favorite parts about being a photographer, is meeting new and interesting people! Russell was just such a person.
He needed portraits for a new medical advisory company he’d started. It was going on his website at www.cummings-legal.com, which had a deep navy color theme. So while we were shooting, I pulled up his website. That way, we could use the instant feedback of our studio system to get a complementary background color for his portraits!
It was great meeting Russell, and we wish him all the success in the world with his new venture.
Such a sweet couple! Such a perfect day!!!
Last weekend I was so honored to be a part of a very touching celebration at The Tides on Folly Beach. Toni & Doug finally tied the knot!
Originally from L.A., Doug found himself a true Charleston Sweetheart in Toni. I love her wonderful sense of humor and kind heart. I’ll bet Doug is glad he moved here! They met at Publix…and the rest has been magic. Doug is a real gentleman and treats his bride like a princess. I love that!!!
CONGRATULATIONS Toni & Doug!!!
It was such an honor to be the Official Photographer of the Family Circle Cup for the 8th year in a row this spring. I’ve shared tons of images in previous posts. So here I just wanted to share this recap video, produced by the wonderful folks at PDA, which I had the pleasure of working alongside throughout the week! Enjoy!!!
