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!
