Ally & Matt’s Celebration at Pawleys Plantation

Exactly one week ago today, Ally & Matt finally tied the knot!!!

I’d been looking forward to Ally & Matt’s wedding for a VERY long time! You see, I’d had the great honor of photographing Matt’s Secret Proposal to Ally way back in 2017: Having been there at the beginning, when Ally said “Yes”, and Matt slipped her gorgeous engagement ring onto her finger, I was SUPER EXCITED to have been there at the end when Ally said “I Do”, while Matt placed her wedding band in its rightful place. 🙂

Matt & Ally’s wedding celebration was absolutely AMAZING!!! Ally and her bridesmaids got dolled up at her parent’s beautiful home in Myrtle Beach, while Matt and his groomsmen got their duds on at the Litchfield Golf and Beach Resort. It was a great honor for me to photograph their amazing wedding ceremony at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Garden City! It was a beautiful service, full of laughter and tears, attended by close friends and loving family. A joyful reception followed at Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club, where DJ Scott Reise cranked things up until we had a full-on mega party going!

I’d like to send out a huge thank you to Annie, Chantel, Peggy, Scott, and all the other amazing vendors who came to gether to make Ally and Matt’s big day so perfect. Many thanks also to my good friend Robbin, for helping me capture all the special moments of their beautiful day.  To see the rest of their photos, visit:

CONGRATULATIONS Ally & Matt!!! We wish you all the best as you begin your new and exciting journey together!

Kathryn & Mack at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club

Kathryn & Mack flew all the way from Texas to tie the knot at the gorgeous Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach.  Mack is originally from here, so it was a joyful homecoming for him!  I had the pleasure of working with the always AMAZING Elizabeth of Grand Occasions, as well as my favorite florist in the world, Mark Gladden of M Gladden Designs.  It was the most beautiful day you could imagine.  I had gorgeous light to work with.  And Mack & Kathryn were so IN LOVE and IN THE MOMENT!!!  It was such an honor capturing all the excitement of their day for them.  Go to to check out their fun Music Video.  Then visit to check out the rest of their photos!


RadioPoppers & PocketWizards, Oh My!

My good friend and fellow photographer, Robbin Knight, was covering Lisa & Justin’s wedding with me last weekend.  (  Like me, he’s another big fan of using every trick of the trade, including wireless technology, to cover all the angles and get our clients something unique and different.  So between us we had as many as 8 remote Nikon SB-800 strobes AND a remote Nikon D300 firing at the SAME TIME!!!  The strobes were being fired via RadioPoppers and the D300 was being fired via PocketWizards.  

For our bird’s eye view of Lisa & Justin’s Horah, Robbin used his 96” ShureLine pole, normally used to hold a remote flash, but that we had modified to hold my D300 with a 10.5mm fisheye.  He triggered the camera with a PocketWizard, which fired the on-camera SB-800, which told the RadioPopper to fire all the remote SB-800s.  Meanwhile, there I am in the crowd getting the “inside” view with my Nikon D3/14-24mm combo, triggering the same remote flashes via a RadioPopper mounted on my SB-900. 

It’s always so much fun working with Robbin.  We had a BLAST!!!  Plus Lisa & Justin couldn’t have been more fun to work with…

Lisa & Justin at Dunes Golf and Beach Club

This past weekend, I had an AMAZING experience working with Lisa & Justin and all their family and friends.  I always enjoy photographing Rehearsal Dinners since everyone is always so relaxed and ready for fun.  Plus there’s an electric energy in the air with the anticipation of the next day’s MAIN EVENT!  J  Lisa & Justin’s Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding were held on the beautiful Grand Dunes property in Myrtle Beach.  Here are a few early previews from the Rehearsal Dinner at the Dunes Golf and Beach Club.
