Anderson Reynolds & Stephens

Anderson Reynolds & Stephens, LLC, is a statewide civil litigation defense firm that represents individuals, their businesses, corporations, insurance carriers and government entities in a wide array of disputes.

I’ve had the pleasure of being their photographer for many years. They are a great group of people who truly take their customer’s needs to heart!

Here are a few images from the latest assignment I had for them, photographing updated head-shots and new group photos of the attorneys.

Haik Family on Isle of Palms

It’s been several years now since I last photographed the Haik Family. I was absolutely THRILLED when they called to let me know they were coming back to Wild Dunes and wanted some updated family beach portraits! The best news of all was finding out that their oldest daughter is engaged! CONGRATULATIONS Miranda & Mason!!!

State Farm Headshots

We’ve had the privilege of working with some of our corporate clients for a very long time. I consider this a real honor and a true testament to our service! After all, if we weren’t providing a great product, with friendly service, at a reasonable rate, in a timely turnaround…who would keep coming back?

It’s been 10 years since I photographed Kevin Sevier’s first State Farm headshots!!! Based out of Hilton Head, it was great to catch up with him and photograph some new headshots for him and his staff while we were down there this week.  Congratulations on your continued success, Kevin!

If you or your office would like to experience why so many of our corporate clients have been with us for so long, please reach out!  We’re currently booking new clients who are ready for a new  headshot to kick off NEW YEAR with a smile!!!

Amy & Adam at Medicine Wind Farm

Some of you may remember this absolutely GORGEOUS Engagement Photo Shoot I had with Amy & Adam at Middleton Plantation eight months ago:

Last weekend, Amy & Adam finally tied the knot in a BEAUTIFUL outdoor ceremony on the grand lawn at the picturesque Medicine Wind Farm! It was a chilly afternoon outside. But the palpable love between these two, and the warm comradery of good friends and great family that surrounded them, kept all of us warm inside.

To see more of their photos, visit their full gallery at:

CONGRATULATIONS Amy & Adam! You two are absolutely perfect for each other…a true match made in heaven. May God bless you as you begin this wonderful new journey together!!!

Hadden Family at Washington Square Park

Check out the AMAZING time I had with the Hadden’s last weekend!!! 🙂

It’s been my honor to photograph this beautiful family since capturing Lisa & Clay’s gorgeous wedding celebration at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church several years ago. For this session, we decided to start out in front of St. Michael’s with its beautiful black iron gates and those old red brick walls.  The circle is complete!

We then headed over to historic Washington Square Park for the natural greenery and the amazing late-afternoon light that comes flooding through that eccentric park in the heart of downtown.

For the grand finale, we couldn’t pass up the longest cobblestone street in Charleston! Chalmers Street provided a charming backdrop for some fun moments and fond memories.

CONGRATULATIONS Lisa & Clay! Your growing family gets even more precious every time I see them!!! 🙂

Boucher Family at Charlestowne Landing

I got to spend Saturday morning with one of my all-time-favorite wedding couples!

That’s right, just a few short years since Catie & Justin’s AMAZING Boone Hall Plantation wedding, I got to meet the newest addition to their family! We met up at the historic Charlestowne Landing, on a beautiful fall day. This is the same historic location where Catie had her beautiful Bridal Shoot. So it was fitting that this would be the same picturesque setting for Savvy’s 6-month old session!  🙂

Savvy is an absolutely ADORABLE 6-month old girl.  She’s a bouncing, bubbling, bundle of joy.  With her mom’s beautiful blue eyes, and her dad’s funny sense of humor, she’s just a delight to be around!

CONGRATULATIONS Catie & Justin! You guys are going to be the BEST parents ever!!!

Winter Wonderland Wedding

In my 25+ year career as a professional photographer, I STILL experience some wonderful firsts!!!

Last weekend I had the privilege of photographing my first outdoor wedding in a snow storm! It may have been freezing…but the “magic” of the falling snow that transformed the mountain scene into a winter wonderland made it all worthwhile!!!  It truly was an experience I’ll never forget.  The fact that Kaite and Donnie were so incredibly head-over heals in love with each other made it all the more special.  🙂

Many thanks to Cami’s cousin and amazing photographer, Beth at Beth Brown Photography, for making this incredible experience a dream come true.  It was so much fun working with you!

CONGRATULATIONS to Kaite & Donnie! May the road rise up to meet you, my friends…

Amelia’s Senior Portraits

We’ve been best friends with Byron & Kathleen for a looong time. We don’t want to date ourselves, but we’ve known them since the BAE…”Before Amelia Era”!!! 😉

As you can imagine, it’s been a real joy of ours to watch Amelia grow from adorable baby, to cute little girl, and now into the beautiful young lady she’s become! We couldn’t be more proud of the amazing, kind, and giving human being she’s grown into!!!

For something fun and different, Byron, Kathleen, and Amelia joined us for a weekend get-away in Maggie Valley to photograph Amelia’s Senior Portraits. True to the White/Smith tradition, IT RAINED! You see, the number of camping trips and expeditions we’ve been on together, it’s astounding how often it rains. It was only fitting that it rain on this one too. But we don’t think of it as a curse. We think of it as an adventure!

And so, with an ADVENTURE in mind, we forged ahead with our plans to meet in picturesque Cataloochee Valley to photograph Amelia. As a bonus, we got to see a herd of elk grazing in one of the fields. But the real thrill was hanging out with this wonderful family, and capturing beautiful images of their amazing daughter!!!

Thanks for another great expedition, Byron, Kathleen, and Amelia. We can’t wait to see what great things God has in store for you, Amelia! We are so proud of you.

Wild at Wingswood Gala

Photographing the annual Wild at Wingswood gala for the Charleston Center for Birds of Prey is one of my most anticipated events of the year!

It’s a very unique fundraiser, where live raptors, owls, and other beautiful birds soar through the air, gliding silently over guests and attendees under the big tent!
The Avian Conservation Center and the Center for Birds of Prey are doing AMAZING things for our natural world. If you’ve never been, they are open to the public on most Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. You’ve GOT to check this cool place out and see for yourself why nature lovers from all over the country speak so highly of this gem, located just a few miles outside of Charleston!

Maisha & Danny’s Folly Beach Wedding

Maisha and Danny were married last week on a beautiful afternoon, in front of a gorgeous beach house, on the delightful island of Folly Beach!

Because Danny is the Executive Chef at a country club in Atlanta, and normally works on weekends, they decided to have their wedding on a Wednesday. Smart! He’s been in enough of his friend’s weddings on the weekend, that he told all of them: “Guess what! I had to take off work for YOUR weddings. Now you get to take off work for mine!”  🙂

Maisha is one of the Atlanta Rollergirls. Let me tell you, these ladies are TOUGH!!! She was telling me about their workouts, and all the injuries they’ve sustained…pretty impressive stuff! But not only is she a powerful young lady…she’s also beautiful! And I mean beautiful both inside and out.

Maisha and Danny, along with their fun and fabulous wedding party, met up with me in downtown Charleston for some cool shots before the ceremony. We started at Waterfront Park, strolled around the French Quarter, and even made it up to Rainbow Row. We had a BLAST!!!  To see the rest of their photos, head over to:

Eventually, we headed over to Folly Beach, where the fabulous Rachel of had everything beautifully decorated. I had to give Rachel a HUGE hug for recommending us to Maisha and Danny. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect couple to work with!

The ceremony was led by Rev. Barbara of One Gal and A Wedding. And the beautiful music was performed by Corinne Gooden.

CONGRATULATIONS Maisha & Danny! We wish you all the best as you begin your new journey together!!!

Headshots for Lee & Associates

It was a pleasure photographing new headshots for Lee & Associates today!

I always love photographing assignments at the iconic Cedar Room in the old Cigar Factory. We used one of the original historic walls , with its amazing patina, as the backdrop for the portraits.

This image was photographed with a Nikon D5 at ISO 400, a Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 VRII set at f5.0, and a pair of Nikon SB-5000 flashes diffused with Westcott 60″ shoot-through umbrellas.

Charleston Rugged Maniac

I’m always intrigued by the challenge, suffering, and ultimate triumph humans seek out in competitive sports. Being a sports photographer has its own set of challenges!

This spring I had the pleasure of covering the Charleston Rugged Maniac Challenge at Boone Hall Plantation with this AMAZING team of sports photographers. I’ve photographed this event for the last 4 or 5 years, and always enjoy the experience! It’s tough on the gear…keeping the mud and water off the equipment isn’t easy. And it’s tough on the photographers…I shot over 4,000 images in five hours of non-stop action.

A special shout out goes to Richard Ellis for capturing the image of me “at work”!  And thank you to the nice EMT staff for taking our team picture!

But being a part of the excitement these athletes experience is totally worth it!!! CONGRATULATIONS to all the participants for enduring and triumphing over this fabulous challenge!
