McCue Family on Isle of Palms

I had so much fun with Aimee, Chad, and their adorable kids on last year’s family portrait session! So when Aimee told me her sister’s family was joining us this year, I knew it was going to be a hoot!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a beautiful fall evening when we all met up at a beach access on IOP. The summer heat had finally cooled off, and the lighting was magical! The chemistry between the two families was hilarious. We laughed A LOT, goofed off even more, and came away with a ton of beautiful images!!!

Many thanks to Aimee for all her hard work coordinating schedules and outfits. ๐Ÿ™‚

Celebrating Donna’s 60th Birthday on IOP

When Lisa called to secretly arrange for me to photograph portraits at her friend Donna’s 60th Birthday party, I was struck by what a kind and thoughtful gift that was!

Donna and her family had rented a beach house on Isle of Palms for the week. The night of the big celebration, they had a chef coming out to cook a delicious meal for all their friends and family. But before dinner, I arrived and took everyone out for some photos in the beautiful evening light!

We all had a wonderful time capturing these memories of a beutiful birthday celebration for Donna!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Murray Family on Isle of Palms

I’d like to say a HUGE Thank You to my friend Kristin Whitney for referring the Murray family to me. They were such a fun family! I had an AMAZING time getting to know their two adorable kids. It was an absolute pleasure to be with them on this beautiful evening and capture these special moments for them!

Brown Family on Isle of Palms

After the storms passed through yesterday afternoon, a glimmer of sunshine slipped through the clouds to give us a gorgeous evening!

I had the absolute honor of meeting and photographing the delightful Brown Family during their annual vacation to Isle of Palms with that amazing light. They are SUCH a fun family and the nicest people you could ever hope to meet! Plus, their children are absolutely ADORABLE!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I had so much fun chasing the kids and capturing these beautiful images of their special time together…

Shackel Family at Wild Dunes Resort

After missing our last session due to the pandemic, I was so excited to finally catch up with the Shackel Family again this year! They are such a beautiful and fun-loving group of human beings. And they always make me feel like part of the family!!!

This year we met up at their villa in Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms. After all the rain we’ve had, what a relief to have clear skies and a gentle breeze. We couldn’t have asked for a prettier evening! We had an absolute BLAST!!!

Many thanks to Mary and Beth for all their help in scheduling and organizing this year’s photo shoot. I can’t wait to see what they plan for the next one… ๐Ÿ™‚

The Hamrick Boys on Isle of Palms

It’s been a few years now, but I remember photographing the Hamrick boys like it was yesterday! In fact one of their shots graces our website: https://chrisandcami.com/gallery/families/. So we did a fun “recreation” of the original shot. Can you tell which one it is?ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The boys were so much fun back then…and are still a hoot today!!! In spite of the whipping wind and overcast skies, we decided to be adventurous and go for it. I’m so glad we did! The texture of the skies really ads a cool mystique to the photos.ย  Plus we had the entire beach to ourselves!

It was so much fun catching up with Robin and her energetic entourage! I can’t wait to do it again in a few years!!!

Every year I look forward with great anticipation to hanging out with and photographing the amazing Muro clan during their vacation to Isle of Palms!

Johnston Family on Isle of Palms

Originally from the Greenville area, like most extended families these days the Johnstons are now all spread out. Individuals are following their dreams, from a Physical Therapist in Bristow to a dentist in Spartanburg, from a computer engineer in San Antonio to an attorney in Greenville. But they all come together once a year to re-connect those family ties!

I had the pleasure of meeting up with them at their beach house on IOP yesterday to capture some fun family memories. In addition to the usual family photos, we also celebrated Brook and her friends graduating college. Congratulations to them as they embark on a new journey following THEIR dreams!

It was a beautiful evening and I had a great time getting to know the three sisters and their families. Thanks for allowing me to be part of this year’s reunion, Susan, Stacey, and Cara!!!

Natalie’s Senior Portraits

Natalie is a bright, beautiful, and bubbly young lady!

It’s hard to believe that Scott & Sheri’s little girl is all grown up. Where does the time go!?! But we had a BLAST this weekend, photographing some wonderful Senior Portraits for this amazing girl with a big heart and a bright personality!

CONGRATULATIONS Natalie! We wish you all the joy in the world as you complete your senior year of high-school, and embark on whatever wonderful journey lies ahead!!!

Isle of Palms Family Beach Portrait

The Blalocks are spread out all over the countryโ€ฆColorado, Georgia, Pennsylvania.ย  So it was very special for them to be able to come together for a family vacation here in the Charleston area.ย  I was honored that they contacted us about photographing their family portrait on the beach across from the house they had rented on IOP.ย  We laughed, got wet, and had a great time creating some fun memories.ย  J

Julie & Howie’s Wedding at The Citadel Beach House

I can’t believe it’s been EXACTLY one year since Howie & Julie first filled out that contact form inquiring about our photography services for their wedding! A few months later I got to photograph their AMAZING e-session on Seabrook. It feels like this all happened just a few weeks ago! Where does time go?!? ๐Ÿ™‚

I originally met Julie & Howie at a Johnson & Wales Alumni Event that I was photographing. We hit it off right away because we have a lot in common…we love dogs, the great outdoors, and hanging out with friends ALMOST as much as they do. Their cool website reads:

“Itโ€™s no wonder Julie and Howie fit together so well. They will often take off for a weekend with their dog Riley for mountain biking, hiking or camping on one of the many islands around Charleston. They enjoy taking friends out on the boat to experience the amazing sunsets that only Charleston can offer! And if Howie has any reason at all to fry a turkey, you can rest assured — he will! Truly two kids at heart, these two love to have a good time with good company!”

I had an UNFORGETTABLE time photographing Julie & Howie’s wedding. My favorite parts were Riley’s role as the ring bearer, the dramatic beach shoot, and the surprise fireworks display at the very end. After the slideshow, Click Here to see rest of the wedding photos. CONGRATULATIONS you guys!!!
