Market Common - Myrtle Beach Engagement Photos

This engagement session couldn’t have been more wonderful as we walked the scenic Market Commons here in Myrtle Beach. Preston and Carleigh wanted a quick session so that they could have a photo to share with all their friends and family to announce their joyful news. To help them share the engagement photos even quicker, I provided an on-the-spot edit for them to share!

USS Tutuila Veterans - Portrait Photography

I like to think of myself as a pretty adventurous person; I get to travel a good bit with my job, meet new people constantly and overall put myself in situations where I get to experience a lot more than I normally would have with a behind the desk day job. Sometimes my job isn't as adventurous but it's still just as rewarding. A few weeks ago I had the express opportunity to spend an evening with a group of men that all served on the same ship in the U.S. Navy on a ship called the USS Tutuila. Some of these men served during Vietnam some during the Korean War and some even during World War II. They needed help capturing photos for their reunion album and they called me to help them out. I have a great respect for those in uniform and it was an honor to be able to photograph them. There were somewhere around 80 men plus their wives and children here 

Though this was pretty simple work, and they didn't want anything fancy, I still had a lot of fun interacting with these people and hearing stories that they were interested in telling. Many of these men served together during different tours, so to see them together all these years later was very cool. Anyway I curated just a few images that I'd like to share with you that didn't make it into their reunion book but will be in my personal collection forever because of what it meant to me not necessarily because they're the best portraits of ever taken. Hope you enjoy them.


Disney Princess - Cosplay Portraits

Cosplay is not a new concept, but it has become more normal in the pop culture over the last 5 years or so. Events such as Comic-Con have really pushed geek culture to the forefront and dressing up for fun doesn't just have to be on Halloween anymore. I have some friends here in the Myrtle Beach area who all dress as Disney Princesses for different events. They spend a good bit of their time doing makeup, hair and making sure their costumes are just right for everyone's enjoyment.

Charleston - Street Photography

Traveling is something that I feel I was made to do. I have had many opportunities to see different parts of the world, but still one of the easiest ways to feed my addiction is picking a place fairly close to me that allows me to get a couple hours away from home and immerse myself in a culture that is different than my own. Charleston is a beautiful old city and is very well known for it's historical significance here in the south.

Home to numerous colleges including the Citadel and the College of Charleston, a day in there is filled with just as many slouchy beanies and fixed gear bikes as there are seersucker suits and mint juleps. Make sure to watch the video and enjoy the photos!
