Wildberry Farm is so much fun for both portrait sessions and weddings. There are so few venues in the Myrtle Beach area that provide so many different types of places for inspiration in one location! From a luxurious loft apartment to wooded nature walks to the beautiful barn reception hall. One of my absolute favorite things on property is this beautifully placed swing right outside of the loft! With all the amazing places around the Wildberry property, my client Shannon wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather and scenery for her bridal portrait session.Read More
Kids are great. I wish I had something extremely insightful to say about having kids, but the fact of the matter is that I am not a father yet. I am an uncle though, and a teacher and I love interacting with kids to see how their untrained minds comprehend situations. They see things in such an unbiased way that makes for a lot of fun, unless they heard you say something and then you are extremely embarrassed later (My sister-in-law claims that I am the culprit who taught her soon how to say "booger" haha). Well I had the extreme pleasure of photographing the Branfuhr family to help celebrate finding out what the gender of their soon to come addition would be.Read More
So, I meet new and interesting people every day. Working in the resort industry you meet millionaires, musicians, quirky vacationers, traveling salesman and everything in between; but sometimes you meet someone on a mission. For this fellow in particular, his mission is to share with people the Word of God. His name is Tony DeLLomo and through blessings from God he has been given a mission to travel around the country in his RV sharing God's Word. I like his approach opposed to other people on the street corner yelling in to a microphone telling everyone they are going to Hell. I am a Christian and I believe that people need to see the love of God through us and Tony found a unique way to use his freedom of speech by completely covering his RV in Scripture for everyone to see, then he waits for those to approach him before witnessing to them. He was a super nice guy and a really interesting conversationalist. He travels with his dog all year round doing the Lord's work.
So, after going to the wrestling match a few weekends ago, my friend was impressed by the images I had of him. It was a ton of fun shooting the wrestler in action but I thought that for his promotional prints and posters, he needed to have a portrait or two. Meeting him down at the training facility, I was able to snap a few portraits using some new techniques and equipment. Let me know what you think!
For those interested, I used a reflective silver umbrella and a speedlight being triggered by the on camera pop up flash. I am glad to have learned this strategy from The Strobist, David Hobby. Thanks for looking!
