  • Anchor Commercial

  • My “Double Your Pleasure” post about the team photos I did for ESPN got such a big response!  So I thought I’d share this group photo I did last weak using the same technique.  Anchor Commercial has been a client of ours for many years.  One of the things they have me photograph for them each Nov[...]
  • Double Your Pleasure

  • I used to love those Wrigley’s commercials…”Double your pleasure with double-mint gum”.  J  At my workshops, one of the questions I get a lot is “how do you get enough power out of those little flashes for big groups”?  Well, I double (or even triple) them up.  I have a couple home-modified umbr[...]
  • Family Portrait on Sullivan's Island

  • Last week I shot this fun family portrait session for our good friends, the McKelveys.  They used to live on Sullivan’s Island near Fort Moultrie.  Their kids used to play down there all the time.  Since they had such fond memories from that area, we decided to do their family’s photo shoot there[...]
  • A Kiss of Light

  • I am, and always will be, a student of light!  Most days I can find absolutely gorgeous natural light to work with.  But sometimes a shot needs a little extra “something”.  During this fun shoot with James & Ashleigh and their beautiful daughter, I started photographing this story-telling sce[...]
  • Five Year Follow-Up

  • It’s been about five years since I photographed James & Ashleigh’s wedding.  What a joy it was to bump into them as guests at Ashley & Sherrod’s wedding just a few weeks ago.  And even MORE exciting was the honor of meeting their beautiful daughter and getting to photograph yet another ch[...]
  • Hilton Family at Folly Beach

  • Before Cami & I left for Maine last week, I had a really fun shoot with the Hilton Family on Folly Beach.  Dr. Hilton is our dentist and we LOVE the great care they give our smiles!  J  (Check out www.hiltondental.net.)   
  • RadioPopper Goes to Romania

  • I have been a HUGE fan of RadioPoppers since they liberated me from the line-of-sight limitations of my Nikon Creative Lighting System.  I absolutely LOVE the versatility, dependability, and control that the whole Nikon CLS flash system gives me.  Extending all those qualities to HUNDREDS of feet[...]
  • Kathy & Rusty's family at Folly Beach

  • I had a really fun time photographing Shelley, Chris, and their son Logan last year.  So I was ecstatic when her Mom called to ask me to photograph the WHOLE family.  J  It was so beautiful, peaceful, and un-crowded out on my favorite stretch of Folly Beach.  One of the joys of my job is getting [...]
  • Alison & Kevin at Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian

  • Alison & Kevin had a GORGEOUS ceremony last Saturday!  The sky was blue, the temperature was perfect, and Alison & Kevin were a BLAST to hang out with!!! I met up with them at Alhambra Hall where the wedding party was getting ready.  Kevin & Alison shared their “First Glance” shortly[...]
  • Belle Hall Eye Care

  • I first got to know Dr. Lori Donovan when I photographed her wedding seven years ago.  Hard to believe it’s been that long…she’s just as beautiful as the day she wore her wedding gown!  Now Lori, with the help of her super sweet Mom, Maxine, and indeed the whole family, has become an instant succ[...]
  • Patricia & Michael at Summerall Chapel

  • Last weekend Tricia & Mike tied the knot at Summerall Chapel on The Citadel!  Their reception followed at the Carolina Yacht Club in downtown Charleston. Tricia is a 1st Grade teacher…and we all know I have a big heart for teachers since my parents were educational missionaries and still tea[...]
  • Product Photography

  • Although I primarily showcase our wedding/portrait work on here, we photograph a wide variety of subjects and genres.  So I thought I’d write a post about a fun shoot I did for healer Ayal Hurst the other day.  She’s a long-time client of ours and so full of positive energy.  It’s always a pleasu[...]
