Johnstone Supply Awards Banquet at Charleston Marriott

Johnstone Supply is a wholesale distributor serving professional HVACR contractors throughout the state. They offer the largest selection of equipment and genuine OEM parts in the industry. Plus they have replacements for nearly every major brand and an extensive cross reference system that makes sourcing hard-to-find parts easy!

It was my pleasure to photograph their Dealer Networking Party and Awards Banquet at the Charleston Marriott this year. It was a fantastic evening, including cocktails, silent auction, live music, dinner, an awards presentation, a networking hour with top suppliers, games, dancing, and more!

Many thanks to Somer for all her hard work coordinating every detail, and to my friend Jeff for helping cover some of the program. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event!!!

CTAR Market Forecast Conference

Last week I was honored to be invited back to photograph the annual conference for the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors. Their Market Forecast Report was held at the beautifully renovated Charleston Marriott.  With an excellent panel of speakers, delightful live music, and lots of networking opportunities, the evening was a huge success.  Many thanks to Claire and her team for including me in another amazing CTAR corporate event!!!

DHG Leadership Conference

I always enjoy photographing the Dixon Hughes Goodman Leadership Conference. They are such a great organization, and truly care about their people!

Here are a few shots from the first day of the conference. The day started with attendees arriving at the impressive Charleston Marriott, learning from fabulous keynote speaker Camille Yameen, and ended with a fun carraige tour through historic downtown.

Toyota Southeast Comtrollers’ Conference

I drive a Toyota Highlander. So it was quite fitting that my good friend and crazy-cool photographer, Gary Coleman, asked me to cover this really fun event for Toyota!
The 2015 Southeast Toyota Comtrollers’ Conference was held at the Charleston Marriott. But their main corporate event was held at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation. The fine folks at Absolutely Charleston made sure everything for the event was “absolutely” perfect.  And The Bushels brought fine tunes and merriment to the occasion. 
It was a pleasure being a part of another fantastic gala at this beautiful and historic venue!

Lisa & Clay’s Charleston Wedding at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church

I have had such an honor getting to know Lisa & Clay over the past year.  Their wedding last weekend will stay with me forever!  Lisa is a teacher here in Charleston.  Clay is a speech therapist.  So they both have a huge heart for helping kids.  They are both such genuine, sweet, and compassionate individuals…you couldn’t find a more adorable couple!  When I first met them, they’d been dating about a year.  Their friend Lizzie gets props for inviting Lisa to join St. Michael’s where they met.  And their friend Charlotte had the honor of introducing them.  Clay picked her ring out on his own (it’s GORGEOUS!) and totally surprised her by taking her up to the church bell-tower right at sunset and proposing to her.  I’m a hopeless romantic at heart…so stories like this really get me.  J

The wedding day was absolutely perfect.  My good friend and fellow photographer, Kellie McCann, joined me on the big day.  We met up with the girls at The Marriott where they were getting ready.  The ceremony was at the beautiful and historic St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.  Afterwards we did wedding party photos at White Point Gardens on The Battery.  And finally we ended back at The Marriott for a rockin’ reception.  Check out the music video with some of my favorite shots at  Then head over to to see the rest of their wedding gallery.

CONGRATULATIONS Lisa & Clay!  You guys are AWESOME!  May God bless you as you begin this new journey together…
