Thomas Family at Hampton Park

After photographing Riley’s newborn photos a year ago, it was so much fun cathcing up with the Thomas Family for her 1-Year Photo Shoot at Hampton Park!!! Riley is an absolute DOLL with a smile that will melt your heart! It’s no surprise since she has some of the coolest parents ever, gets a play date with her amazing aunt every week, and spends lots of time with her beautiful grandmother too! 🙂

Romberger Family at Bottany Bay Plantation

This weekend I got to photograph one of my FAVORITE families in one of my all-time FAVORITE locations!

From Brittainy & Nate’s Wedding…to fun weekend gatherings with their entire clan, it’s ALWAYS a joy to spend time with this very special family!!!

Business Portraits for Falls Legal

Falls Legal, LLC is a boutique employment law firm that represents employees throughout the State of South Carolina. Because they only take on a select number of cases each year, they are able to provide a level of service and attention to detail that larger firms can’t.

It’s been my honor to photograph the Falls Legal Team for the last couple of years. Scott and Ashley work seamlessly together, are true and honest in their dealings with others, and have a genuine heart for helping others! I highly recommend them if you’re ever in need of an employment attorney!!!

Head-shots for South Carolina Federal Credit Union

POW!!!  I blinded myself doing test shots this morning when I was setting up to photograph head-shots for the South Carolina Federal Credit Union!  OOPS!!!  🙂

Super Bowl Party for Mellow Mushroom

Every year Mellow Mushroom hosts a very special invitation-only event on Super Bowl Sunday!

The celebration is for all their VIP Beer Club Members. They close the whole restaurant for them, serving free beer and pizza to all the guests. Plus of course the Super Bowl is blasting on all the giant LCD screens around the room. It really is an awesome atmosphere and I had a BLAST photographing it for them!!!

Many thanks to my friend and amazing photographer, Adam Chandler, for the referral. 🙂


At Chris & Cami Photography, we may have an impeccable reputation, a polished product, and an efficient turn-around time. But behind all the professionalism, we are just regular people, who love what they do, and love having a good time doing it!

It was a pleasure photographing new head-shots for Ben at Colliers International a few weeks ago. It’s nice to know that we’re not the ONLY ones who like to have a little fun with their day!  Yeah Baby, yeah!  🙂

1 Camera, 9 Flashes

Last night I had the oportunity to photograph the Charleston Legislative Group before their first meeting of 2017.

With limited time, a confined space, and heavy foot traffic through the area, I elected to use an all wireless setup. This was a simple bank of windows in the study area of the Lowcountry Graduate Center. The last thing I needed was students tripping over power chords as they hurried past me on the way to classes and meetings!

For a soft bank of main lights, I mounted 2 SB-800 flashes on a Manfrotto stand with a 60″ Westcott shoot-through umbrella to camera right, and the same to camera left. These were set as Group A. For a kicker or rim light, I mounted a bare SB-800 on a tall Manfrotto stand and set it up high in the left corner, aimed back towards the group’s heads. The same setup was repeated on the back right corner. These were set to Group B. To add a little color to an otherwise drab background, I placed blue gels on 3 SB-800 flashes, and mounting them to one of my triple-threat brackets, atop another Manfrotto light. These were set as Group C and placed outside the building, aiming back at the blinds from behind. All stands were sand-bagged with BoaBags for safety.

The image was shot on a Nikon D4 on a Manfrotto tripod, tethered to a Lenovo Yoga laptop. All flashes were triggered by an SB-5000 on the camera, via RadioPopper Px radio transmitters. The final shot was cropped for 16×20 output, with space for graphics left at the top of the frame.

Lacey & Paul’s Secret Proposal

Paul is the epitome of a true gentleman!

Evidence of that is the care and attention to detail he put into a beautiful weekend for his future bride. I was honored to be a part of his plans to propose to the adorable Lacey! We emailed ideas back and forth, figured out the perfect timing, and talked on the phone to fine tune each and every step.

This past weekend, Paul led Lacey into a private courtyard at the historic Mills House in downtown Charleston. With all the staff “in” on the secret, everything went off without a hitch…even when Lacey almost derailed it by asking one of the bell hops to take a selfie with her phone. 😉  Somehow, Paul got things back on track and in a touching moment, asked Lacey to be his wife!!! Celebrating with champagne, a private serenade, and a candlelight dinner, I left the two love birds to enjoy their evening.

The following morning we met up for a fantastic walk-about through our picturesque city streets. Lacey took over the engagement session with her gorgeous smile, bubbly personality, and creative eye. Paul was proud as could be, and happily put up with all our crazy ideas and fun poses!  To see the rest of their photos, head over to

Many thanks to my good friend and amazing photographer, Roxy, for the kind referral.  CONGRATULATIONS Paul & Lacey! It was such a pleasure being a part of this special day for you both!!!

Waypoint Recovery Center

I always get an extra sense of gratification when I have the opportunity to work with a client who I know is making a difference in people’s lives. Photographing head-shots and promotional images for Waypoint Recovery Center was just such an assignment!

“Waypoint Recovery Center offers a comprehensive intensive outpatient program for drug addiction and alcoholism. Our goal is to collaborate, encourage, and support a changed lifestyle, fully independent from substance use.”

I set up my portable studio, complete with camera, lights, background, and laptop, at their office one morning. After each person had their business portraits taken, they were able to look through them on the laptop to make sure they were happy with the images. Everyone loved the instant gratification. And their favorite shot was sent off to our retouching lab to get cleaned up!

I’d like to give a personal shout out to the amazing folks at Waypoint Recovery Center. Thanks for EVERYTHING you guys do to help those folks looking to get their life back on track!!!

South Atlantic Bank

South Atlantic Bank’s new regional headquarters in Mount Pleasant is beginning to take shape. The in-ground items, including plumbing and electricity are in place and the concrete has been poured for the first floor. We will see the building “go vertical” as framing gets underway.

The 8,000 square foot, two-story building will house a full-service banking office on the first floor with space for tenants on the second floor.

It was a pleasure photographing head-shots for Michael Tawes the other day. He was responsible for locating and appraising the site of the new bank!  The setup consisted of 6 Nikon SB-800 Speedlights, 1 Nikon SB-5000, 2 Wesctott 60″ umbrellas, 1 Nikon D4, 1 Nikon 70-200 VRII, 1 Lenovo Yoga, and 7 RadioPopper Px units.

Charleston Trident Association of Realtors

The Charleston Trident Association of Realtors is an AMAZING organization that I’ve had the priviledge of working with over the last few years. This week I got to photograph their Installation Luncheon of their new inductees!
