One of the great things about being a photographer is I get to meet so many wonderful people! Lori has the often challenging job of coordinating the events and catering for The Grande Dunes Resorts. She works with couples getting married at one of the resorts, and keeps their day running smoothly for sure! Recently her sister and niece came to visit her from West Virginia, and I was able to get a few beach pictures pictures for them. I really love seeing the people I work with, and getting to know them better on a personal level. THANKS LORI

Kelly and Mark are tying the knot this August in Colorado, where Mark will be returning to school. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to do their engagement pictures for them!! We went to the Caledonia Golf & Fish Club for their session, Mark’s very favorite course. I can see why – it’s beautiful! There were even a few little alligators trying to make friends with us
Best of luck in your new life together guys! You are a great couple, and I’m sure you will have a lifetime of happiness together! I hope you are back for a visit very soon.
Did you know that a little rain on your wedding day is good luck in many cultures? The idea? A wet knot is harder to untie than a dry one. As Mandy got ready for her beautiful beach wedding at Ocean Creek Resort, the dark clouds started rolling in. It was going to be close. We walked to the beach, a few little sprinkles falling here and there, but yes! It held off for the ceremony. The reception was wonderful and everyone there had a blast! Mandy and Jason make a great couple, and have wonderful supportive families. I know they will have a long and happy life together Thanks guys — It was truly a pleasure! Coming soon…. their Trash the Dress Session!!
Pure sugar and spice. That’s what I think little Makenzi is made of. Born on May 26th, she is perfect. Ten teeny tiny fingers… ten teeny tiny toes, and she smells like she was just delivered from heaven. Move over Cinderella. There is a new princess in town!
Misty & Ryan live in Texas. Misty is from this area, and I am so glad them came back to get married right here on beautiful Ocean Isle Beach. She is so fun and lively and bubbly, and she and Ryan just make a wonderful couple! Check out her beautiful dress — a friend of hers, Donnie Sanders, who is a costume designer in New York City designed this dress especially for Misty. Beautiful! Thanks guys, for letting me share such a special day with you and getting to know you a little better. I had a blast!
CONGRATULATIONS Gillian and Joe!! Carolina Limousine has a beautiful PINK limo (inside and out)! What’s even better than that? For every hour that the pink limo is booked, Gillian & Joe donate $10. to Caring In Our Lifetime, who raises money to help fight breast cancer in Horry and Georgetown counties. On June 8th, they had a whopping $1200. check ready for Caring In Our Lifetime! Did you see them on the news tonight ???
Guys….I’m so proud of you!! You ROCK! Now everybody get out there and rent that PINK limo for an evening
Crystl and Chris were recently married, and wanted to have a beach romance session. We set up an appointment for a few days after their ceremony. As luck would have it, we got to the beach, and the thunder clouds started moving in No matter. These two were so adorable and in love, that we got all we needed in the 15 minutes we had before it started to pour!
Guys — Thank you so much! I wish you a lifetime of happiness together
You may remember that last December we gave away a $2000. wedding photography package. Matthew and Jenna were the winners by an overwhelming vote! STAY TUNED…as we will be doing it again this year for a 2011 couple. Subscribe to our blog to be the first to hear all about it! 2011 Theme…Greatest Love Story
Jenna is from Ontario Canada and met Matthew while both were lifeguarding in Myrtle Beach in the summer of 2005. They quickly fell in love, but for the next 3 years had to maintain a long distance relationship, as Matthew lived in North Carolina. In 2008, when both had graduated from college, they went to South Korea and spent a year teaching English. It was there that Matthew proposed to Jenna. Their wedding date, May 21st, is the very same day they first met in Myrtle Beach!
This was indeed a beautiful wedding. Jenna picked out a true Cinderella wedding gown, and she looked lovely! I loved her colors of yellow and pink. Their friends and families gathered together for this long awaited celebration, and all were so very happy and excited for them. They were so fun to work with, and it truly was a great pleasure for me to be able to record a part of their wonderful love story. Jenna & Matthew…… Thank you! I wish for you many, many, many years of happiness together
