I’m super excited that I’ve been asked to speak at the PPSC (Professional Photographers of South Carolina) meeting this upcoming Monday, September 23th at 7pm! I’ll be presenting “Creating Dynamic Wedding Images” which basically means I’ll be talking about how to make some awesome wedding images that stand out from the rest. I’ll be going though my approach on the wedding day, go over a few tips and tricks, and provide some ideas on how to take your images to the next level. Sound interesting? The meeting will be held in the large meeting room at Carolina Fine Foods in Simpsonville (625 SE Main St, Simpsonville, SC) so feel free to come on out on Monday, eat some
unhealthy food, and then listen to me speak about creating some top notch wedding photos!
Admission is free for first timer’s, just make sure to get there early to get a good seat (and food). It looks like it should be a packed house! Looking forward to seeing everyone!
As I was laying in bed the night before Hannah and Cory’s wedding I felt something I hadn’t felt in awhile: I was nervous. After shooting over 140 weddings over the past eight years, I have to admit, the feeling doesn’t come around much anymore. I know my gear, I know my settings, I have several layers of backup plans for everything. But this wasn’t like the nervousness I used to feel before photographing my first few weddings, this was more of an excited/energetic nervousness. Like something really big was going to happen the next day.
And this wedding has a lot of stuff to be excited about. Not only were Hannah and Cory a blast to work with on their engagement session, we had the gorgeous backdrops of Keowee Key Country Club, and (best of all) it was actually sunny out for a change! Add on top of that some stunning decor, hilarious bridal parties, an absolutely gorgeous bride, and a huge set of loving family and friends. My feelings the night before were right, this was going to be one heck of a wedding.
Thanks again for having us guys! We had a blast!

Thomas and Marirose had one of those wedding receptions that people would love to have, but not many people end up with. You know, the small, laid-back type where only the people they REALLY care about are there. No drama or overgrown guest lists involved, just loving family and friends having fun playing bocce, dancing, taking hilarious photos of each other, eating, and drinking together.
You may recognize Thomas and Marirose from my blog earlier this year. They were married back in March at Song Hill Reserve in Landrum, SC and I had the awesome privilege to be the only person there with them that day. Naturally we formed a connection and they asked me back to capture their wedding reception this past weekend. In addition to all the fun everyone had that day, there was a new surprise: Marirose was pregnant and due later this year. Thanks again for having me guys!
Thanks again guys!
