Engagement Session

Myrtle Beach Ocean Boulevard and Pawleys Island Engagement | Letsy & Herson

It's amazing when you are in the presence of true love. I was truly mesmerized by Letsy and Herson during their engagement session. The amount of love and joy they displayed was out of the world, and each time Letsy smiled you could simply feel the warmth of her love towards Herson. Every time Herson looked at Letsy you could see how much he loved and adored her soul. This was a pretty cool engagement session that was broken up into two parts.  We started at sunrise on Ocean Blvd in Myrtle Beach and finished up at Calendonia and Pawleys Island Point. If you never believed in soulmates, be around these two and then you will believe.

Thank you for allowing us to capture this glorious day and not letting the rain dampen your spirits.

Until next time...Stay Happy and Keep Smiling!!!

Calendonia Golf & Fish Club | Lowcountry | Engagement Session | Tomecca and Octavius

Tomecca nd Octavius first were introduced in November 2010 through mutual friends and under some very interesting circumstances. However there wasn't real sparks at that time.  Tomecca felt she needed some time and divine intervention to happen to make sure Octavius was the "one". Guess what...there was some divine intervention in the works. With her friends and the divine intervention working in the background. She was starting to noticed how much her friends liked Octavius, but most importantly how much they had cared for him. So Tomecca finally gave it a shot and gave Octavius her number. The first phone conversation lasted for hours which planted a seed for something amazing to come.

After that first call followed many more calls with great conversations that led to a meaningful friendship.  That friendship turned into an amazing relationship. This relationship was done the old fashioned way. They did what the old people called "courting."  The first date was February 15, 2011 at an Italian restaurant in which they enjoyed dinner and talked until the doors were closed. Even the waitstaff knew something special was brewing because they just cleaned up around Tomecca and Octavius and never interrupted or asked them to leave.  They just let them fall in love right then and there. The rest was history after that.

So fast forward 5 years to February 14, 2016.  Octavius wanted to make this Valentine's Day special. So for this special day he decided to take Tomecca to the same restaurant where they had their first date 5 years earlier. Requested the exact same booth they sat in for that very first date; and they had great conversation like they had on that very first date. However he had something little more special to add to this night.  So at the end of this night he wanted to make the love of his life, his wife. He knew he had a special woman who would be there for him and love him just as much as he loved her. Those long late night conversations turn into friendship. That friendship blossomed into love. Now that love will manifest into a beautiful marriage in April of this year.

These guys are amazing together. They love so many of the same things and love to be by each other's side. You can't help but love them too. However there is one thing they both know I don't like about them...their LOVE for those DALLAS COWBOYS! (I should have charged them extra); but I will let that slide. Can't wait to photograph their moments that will tell their love story!

OBX Wedding Photographer | Destination Wedding | Nags Head Beach | Jessica & Chuck

I have to say it was an absolute pleasure getting to know Jessica and Chuck. From photographing their engagement session at Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve in Chesterton, IN to their beautiful beach house wedding at the Soul Surfer in Nags Head, NC, the experience was amazing. Jess and Chuck were just a good down to earth couple, so it made this even more enjoyable. Jess was a little stressed out just like any bride would be if there was a call for rain on the day of your beach wedding and Chuck was just as cool and calm as ever. But lo and behold the rain let up that morning and made for a beautiful sun-filled day in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Jess and Chuck celebrated this wedding surrounded by loving friends and family, and partied the night away. What a beautiful day it made for a wedding celebration.

Jess and Chuck we THANK YOU for trusting and allowing us to document a new chapter in your lives.

Until next time...

...Stay Happy and Keep Smiling!!!

Indiana Engagement Photographer | Chesterton, IN | Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve | Engagement Session | Jessica & Chuck

So let me tell you about this session. This engagement session took me to nice little town in Chesterton Indiana, just outside of Valparaiso, IN. If you don't know where Valpo is located, it's about an hour southeast of the Windy City Chicago. This was one of the best sessions I've had to date.  Jess and Chuck were amazing, fun loving and so laid back. It was an honor to photograph their engagement session and I can't wait to document their wedding!

Jess and Chuck decided to have their session at the Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve in Chesterton Indiana.  All I can say is that they pick an absolute gem of a location.  As you walk around, you are literally one with nature.  The beauty of this place is breathtaking.  Everything was so right about this location...except for the mosquitos.  They were basically trying to carry us away during the session; however, it made for a very fun and interesting time and some hilarious pics.

I can't say enough about Jess and Chuck but I have to keep this short. I will tell you this...you can see the love they have for each other, the respect they have for each other and how they simply adore one another through out the images.  It's amazing to see the big fun they have in their little moments throughout this e-session. Jess really wanted me to capture "them" and not the posey posey type of things.  They allowed me to put them in situations and then I just let them be Jess and Chuck. It was amazing to see the interaction. So enough telling you about it, let the images show you.

From the funny faces, to fighting mosquitos and through the intimate times throughout your session, you guys were AMAZING and I truly want to THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of something so special.  Until next time...

The Bells Hidden Acres Wedding

The Bells Hidden Acres Wedding The Couple-20.jpg

 The Bells are a couple that I was blessed to have the honor and opportunity to photograph from the beginning to end.  Sometimes as a wedding photographer you photograph a wedding without ever meeting the bride and groom until the wedding day.  But with Angelica and Brian I was able to photograph their engagement session, Angelica's bridal session and their wedding day.  This allowed me to really connect with them throughout one of the most important times in their lives.  I will have to say that Angelica and Brian made this so easy for me.  The love they had for each other is absolutely amazing and it is displayed in the images your are about to see. So enjoy the images from the engagement, bridal and as well as the wedding.


The engagement session was taken at the Conway Riverwalk in the quiet rivertown of Conway, SC.  The rustic backdrop for this engagement session was absolutely amazing for a sunrise e-session!

Angelica seems to be born to be in front of a camera.  Her amazing bridal session was photograph at Atalaya Castle at Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, SC. We planned for a sunset bridal session and this made for an outstanding session.

Now the big day was here and the weather wasn't cooperating with the wedding. Luckily God decided to blessed the Bells wedding by stopping the rain just before the ceremony began and bring out the sunshine.  The Bells selected a great venue to start their new lives together. The wedding ceremony and reception was located at Hidden Acres in Marion, SC. It's beautiful rustic venue "hidden" inside of Marion County.

Bells, it was an absolute pleasure to document all of this for you. Congrats to you both on your marriage. May you be blessed with years of happiness.

Until next time...Stay Happy and Keep Smiling!!

Andrale + Dorian Somerset Point Lake Moultrie Engagement Session

Can't say enough about Andrale and Dorian's engagement session at Somerset Point just outside of Moncks Corner, SC.  This couple kept you laughing the entire time.  They brought fun along with them as well as their daughter to be a part of the experience and special day.  That little girl was a hoot and full of energy. This engagement session took place at Lake Moutrie, a beautiful location to document two people's love for one another. This engagement session was a chilly one, but Andrale and Dorian made the experience warm and inviting.  Looking forward to the wedding.  Congrats on your engagement!!!
