The wedding season has been crazy this year, hence why I haven't updated this blog in a while. This was likely the busiest June I've ever had. In fact, I had four weddings in four days.
Jill and Alex's wedding was the start of that month, and it was a great start. I had the pleasure of shooting Jill's sister's wedding a few years ago. It's always nice to see people you know at a wedding, and have some idea of how everybody works together. The wedding was at Honey Horn Plantation on Hilton Head, which is also one of my favorite places to shoot. There is such a variety of places I can go and get a different look for each place. Leah McCarthy from Downtown Catering and Events was the planner, and they did a fantastic job getting everything together and looking beautiful. Furthermore, they set up the ceremony under the oaks in a manner that gave me great lighting. I've shot under the same oaks before, and had half the people in the sun and half in the shade. This was great, especially since it was about a million degrees that day.
To top it all off, we got just a little bit of bad weather right at the end of the day, which if you know me, is fantastic. Bad weather rolling through makes for some fantastic sunsets. I pulled Jill and Alex out of the reception for about 15 minutes and we went down to the dock to make full use of what nature gave us. Heat or not, I would shoot weddings like this one every day. Here are some highlights of the day.
