When I photographed Amber & Collin’s wedding at The Mills House (that’s me with Amanda), I had no idea what a great connection I was going to make with her Mom. Elizabeth is the owner of Grand Occasions, an amazing event planning company based in Myrtle Beach. If you’re looking for an excellent event planner, make sure and check them out!

Here’s one of my favorite shots from a beach shoot for the Betz Family on Sullivan’s Island. They were vacationing down here with their extended family this summer. So we did a bunch of awesome group photos. When I saw these two walking toward the waves, I instinctively squeezed a couple frames off…never realizing I would love this shot so much.
I had a chance to do lunch this week with my FAVORITE DJ, Eddie “L” of Pro Wedding Entertainment. If you’re planning a wedding, make sure you try and get him for your date! He’s an amazing DJ, a good friend, and all around great guy.
Morgan & Greg’s wedding day started out overcast and cloudy. But as their ceremony time at Stella Marris drew near, and the buzzing excitement began to build…like a well-orchestrated symphony the sun came out and brightened the rest of their day! Morgan & Greg were absolutely WONDERFUL to work with…so fun and relaxed. Flowers by Frankie did a fantastic job with the bouquets. Father McInerny’s homily was refreshing and spirit-filled. The reception at Alhambra Hall was delightful, with Regal Catering providing a feast for all to enjoy and Morgan & Greg’s friend Josh doing an awesome job spinning the tunes.
The day was especially meaningful to me because the relationship Cami and I have with her sister, Kelly, goes way back. So it was great to see her and Chad and their two beautiful children, Bohdi & Reagan, who were the adorable ring-bearer and flower-girl. I also photographed Robbie (the glue that held the other groomsman together-HA!) and his wife Kelli’s wedding. AND I photographed the wedding of Morgan & Greg’s friends, Paige & Perry’s! So the whole day was a wonderful reunion of sorts for me. I feel so blessed to have met every one of these couples. And already I know I’m going to feel the same about Morgan & Greg. You two truly brightened MY day!!! Click Here to see the rest of their photos…
I can’t believe it’s been TWO YEARS since I photographed Jeff & Suzanna’s wedding! They’re still as young and full of life as they were on that special day! Last year on their first anniversary, Suzanna’s parents (who are the neatest people you could ever hope to meet) started a tradition of traveling back here for a family reunion in Charleston. These are a few of my favorites from this year’s session. Suzanna’s dad told me before the shoot, “Make sure you get me a good one of my grandson”. Doesn’t that shy smile and fiery red hair just make you want to hug him to pieces!?! CONGRATULATIONS to Suzanna & Jeff…may life bring you abundant joy…
Over 4th of July Weekend, Cami and I made a trip to visit friends and family back in Ohio.
Here’s Cami braving the rain at the Centerville 4th of July Parade with her brother Todd, sister-in-law Judy, and niece Kristin. Kristin’s brother, Andrew was out west with his boy scout troop so I didn’t get to give him my usual schooling on Rock Band. HA!
Here’s Cami and I with my two younger (but taller…hmmm) brothers. That’s Eric on the far right and Brian in the middle. My oldest brother, Dan, and his family live in Oregon. We’re looking forward to visiting them another time.
Cami was brave enough to stand with her CRAZY cousins on Aunt Evie’s side. I only wish I could be like you guys when I grow up!
Since Cami’s Birthday was later that week, “someone” (I won’t say who because I know she loves her brother VERY much) decided to shower her with love.
My Uncle Charles and Aunt Mary have always been an inspiration to me. They epitomize that saying “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
One night we had dinner with my brother Eric and his wife Martha at their new home. Yup, my youngest brother now has a mortgage…isn’t life great!?!
Well, the most beautiful girl in the world (anybody else like that Prince song?) just turned the big 4-0. She still looks like she’s 24 and still has a heart of gold. So I guess age just can’t hold her down! We flew to Ohio to be with family and friends, who were happy to help us celebrate. So I’ll share pics from that trip later. Cami got a TON of birthday cards and they’re spread out all over our kitchen bar. Thanks to everyone who called and wrote. Happy Birthday, Cami! I love you with all my heart!!!
