Palmetto ADV Rally 2023

We started our riding season off right with a trip to Ridgeveville, South Carolina, for the 2nd annual Palmetto ADV Rally!!!

This year the rally will be held at Black Water on the Ashley Campgrounds, which was a beautiful island in the middle of a lake. The property is a 120 acre wetlands preserve that offers camping, fishing, live music, and good times. Most campsites were located right on the water for the most relaxing views and scenery. We felt like we were alone in the wilderness…yet within easy access of restaurants and stores just a few minutes away in the town of Summerville.

This year’s event included new routes, guided tours, along with daily excursions for exploring, keeping our riding skills sharp, and improving our technique while out on the trails. The South Carolina Adventure Route (SCAR) is less than a mile away away from this new location! So jumping on some fantastic off-road trails was easy.

The Palmetto ADV Rally offers 4 days days of riding and exploring & 3 nights of camping. Free continental breakfast, coffee stations, and a massive home-cooked dinner each night is all included in the rally experience. Tons of live music, presentations, bonfires, raffles, good times, riding buddies (new and old), and tall tails were also to be had!

The Palmetto ADV Rally Guest Speakers list included:
– Kris Coxs (Founder of the SCAR)
– Ben Myburgh (ADV World Traveler and Instructor)
– Mark Wing (MSF / ADV Instructor and Founder of SOAC ADV Practice Park)
– Angelo Vleck (4-time finisher at the Dakar Rally)

Famous YouTubers such as Moto Photo Adventures, The Bearded Grump, and One Old Man Riding were also there to answer questions and capture the experience on camera!

It was an AMAZING weekend and we’re already looking forward to 2024!!!

Angel & Daniel’s Wedding at King’s Grant

I’ve known Daniel for many years, both in a professional capacity and as a friend. He’s is truly an AMAZING human being…full of conviction, compassion, and caring! I have the utmost respect for him and all that he has accomplished. So when I met his Angel for the first time, I knew right away that she was a very special person too!!!

I was extremely honored when Angel & Daniel asked me to photograph their wedding celebration last weekend. It was a gorgeous spring day! Everything was held at the King’s Grant Clubhouse, which has beautiful natural light inside, and picturesque scenes for great photo opportunities outside. Daniel looked dashing in his custom-made bow-tie…his signature look. And he wore a colorful peacock feather for a boutonniere. Angel was absolutely stunning in her elegant gown and long whispy veil.

Many thanks to all of Angel & Daniel’s friends and family who helped with organizing their special day, and came out to celebrate their love for each other! In particular, thanks to Pastor Mike for the beautiful service, Sharon for the wonderful ceremony music, Michael for the tunes at the reception, Jonte with Just Stuff It for the tasty food, Tammy at Tailor Made Events for the rentals, A Touch of Color Bridal for the makeup artistry, and of course Aly and Zoe with Direct My Day Charleston for making sure everything ran so smoothly!

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.
