Hyesun's Bridal Shoot

Hyesun wants a bridal photo! Yes, she got married back in August, but she never found time for a bridal session. Now, almost 6 months later, we plan to head for Furman University to photographer her with Furman's Lake as the backdrop. It is a bright beautiful day. On the way to Furman, I saw a cute little pond. I asked Hyesun if she would mind stopping here first. I knocked on the owners door and asked permission to do a mini shoot in their front yard. Then I got these images:

After the pond shoot, we resumed our trip to Furman. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the lake had been drained for repairs!!! With the sun setting, I set up for a silhouette shot against the shiny mud where water was supposed to be. Here is what we got:
Hyesun loved it! It is now on her wall with a short story to accompany it...

Imagine the shot I could have gotten with actual water in the lake!

Late Christmas Card

David and Hyesun asked me to take their photo for a Christmas Card. These newlyweds are so wonderful. She seems so shy compared to David's OUTGOING personality. I think they are balancing each other out perfectly. Here is the shot we settled on. I designed cards around this shot...

I photographed their wedding back in August.

Christmas House

A local couple asked me to photograph their home. They decorated the house so wonderfully, that they wanted their children and grandchildren across the USA to see it all.

SDC Greer SC Christmas Parade

Southern Dance Connection asked me to photograph their performances in the Greer Christmas Parade. This is my second year doing it.
Last year, the parade was slow and had many stops in it for the dancers to perform for the crowds. This year, I think I ran a marathon. The parade started fast and at times we were jogging to keep up with our float. The ladies didn't get a break the whole time to do their 30 second music show. Next year I am wearing my tennis shoes!

Christmas Card for SDC

Lindsay, the owner of Southern Dance Connection, asked for a quick shot for an SDC Christmas Card. I ran over and grabbed a shot of her and her instructors.

I didn't have much to work with in background options, but I think the shot looked good considering I had 5 mintes to get the shot between dance classes.

The fall colors really were at their peak making the shoot even more colorful.
There are so many great backgrounds in Greenville.

This was a painting on a street wall in downtown, they loved this shot!

Codi & Skipper Get Married

Codi and Skipper were married today at the Harward House B&B, Simpsonville, SC.

It was a very small wedding. Codi has her man!
Skipper is getting into his part a little fast...

The wedding was at 4pm and the reception went into the night. Harward House Bed & Breakfast is a very nice, out of the way place. The house is wonderful. The grounds are OK.
At night, the place really looks awesome.

The Eyes Have It

Train tracks and fields are today's backdrops. Melody and Samantha are gorgeous ladies who wanted to expand their portfolios. The day we decided to meet for the shoot, I passed a field of yellow weeds. It was wonderful. I knew I'd be bringing them back here for some shots. Melody


Not to far from the field were some rail road tracks. We played on them for a while. I have far too many great shots than I can post here.

I hope I get a chance to shoot these two again. They were beautiful and great to work with. They got some really perfect shots!

Model Shootout

A local photographer organized a "Model Shootout". Models and photographers gather together for mutual benefit. We get to take shots so that the photographer can show off their skills. The models get copies of the shots to show off their talents as well. A win-win for all. We had several models and at least six photographers show up.




Last shot of the shoot, we were losing the light. I have so many great shots from this day!

Lynch Wedding

Cherish and Peter Lynch were married today. It was a small wedding at a Bible Baptist Church in Simpsonville, but I was in for a treat. Between ceremony and the reception, the couple wanted to go to the local lake for photos.

I followed the couple and wedding party and captured some fun in the sun shots. The sun was relentless.

It was so bright and hot, we couldn't last long until we had to rush to the reception to continue the festivities.

Melissa and Joshua

Melissa asked me to photograph her wedding only a week and a half before the date! It was held at the Garden House Bed and Breakfast in Simpsonville, SC. A gorgeous bed and breakfast.

I can't get over how perfect the gardens were. This small wedding is one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever photographed. Melissa's children were beautiful too.
What a shot this was! Beautiful!
