I met Holly while shooting assignments for her at the Charleston Regional Business Journal. We’ve been friends ever since and I’ve had the pleasure of photographing her and Clint’s family for several years. Originally it was just their 4-legged kids, now they have a beautiful 2-legged one too. J We met at the historic Boone Hall Plantation just down the road from their house. The early morning light was just perfect and we had a great time roaming the grounds and stopping for different shots. At one point, when I had everyone set, including 2-dogs and a 1-year old girl, this huge (think grayhound) bus slowly wanders down the famous Avenue of Oaks that was my backdrop…and proceeded to stop right behind us to let it’s FULL contents of elderly tourists out behind us!!! How inconsiderate was that? They could have just as easily pulled up 15 feet closer to the mansion and been out of our shot! But that’s the fun of working in a public environment. We rolled with the punches, moved on to a new spot, and came back to that one after everyone had dispersed.

Last weekend I had the privilege of photographing Heather & Josh’s wedding at Boone Hall Plantation for our good friends Bill & Kelli Nixon. The ceremony was held at the rustic Cotton Dock. What a cool venue for a wedding! I arrived early, as usual, and noticed the decorators were draping these long, silky, white sheets over the huge wooden rafters. Seeing those rafters gave me the idea to mount a remote camera from one of the rafters to get this cool angle. In the first photo you can see the D300 with 10.5mm Fisheye super-clamped to the rafter looking strait down. The second shot is an image from the remote camera, which I fired with a set of PocketWizards. Fun Stuff!!!
Karina & her “entourage” met me over at Boone Hall Plantation earlier this week. I’m not actually photographing her wedding, but was SO HONORED when she asked if I would do her Bridal Shoot. Karina is a beautiful, spirit-filled young lady…so full of life and love! It was a joy just being with her and sharing this special time in her life with her. I love how elegant she looks, even when she’s leaning on her fiance’s guitar!!! J
