Night Shoot

I went out tonight to shoot some of Greenville, at NIGHT!
I try to always do new things and learn more about photography. I can apply all these new experiments and lessons learned to every shot I take.

Southern Dance Connection Group Shots

Southern Dance Connection's Dance Teams crowded into Grace Studio today for team portraits. I never thought I could fit that many into the studio!

Dancers posed for the picture and more than a dozen parents behind me, the place was a bit busy. To fit them all in a single shot, I had to really work on the pose and shoot from atop a ladder.

These teams are really racking up the trophies.

Their annual recital is only a couple of months away.

St. Valentine's Day Wedding

Jennifer and Darrell were married at the Davenport in Greer SC.

Before the wedding, I arranged for some fun shots of the bride and bridesmaids in a store window right next door to the Davenport. We did the traditional formal shots and then I told them to follow me for a surprise. I had pre-arranged access to the storefront window earlier that morning when I saw the window and inspiration struck. The ladies loved it!

I did the same for the gents. Right next to the cafe storefront is a men's shop. They really enjoyed it!
Jennifer's 5 year old daughter, Lexie, was the flower girl. During the wedding ceremony, the wedding couple and Lexie were joined in a medallion ceremony - three rings intertwined symbolizing the three lives becoming one.

All the guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they had seen in years.

Shootout at the Botanical Gardens

A local photographer decided to have a "Model Shootout". A model shootout means several photographers and models gather together and just have fun shooting! This shootout started out at the SC Botanical Gardens in Clemson and ended the day at my studio.

The models get the shots for their portfolios and the photographers keep copies to show off their skills. Everybody wins and has fun!
Allie gives me some attitude.

Jennifer Hooper Bridal Session

Jennifer is getting married in 12 days. She has postponed and delayed her bridal session a number of times. We finally managed a couple of hours of shooting after she got off work today.

Her wedding will be Valentines Day, February 14th. I would expect that her hubby will never forget their anniversary date!
