As someone who leans toward photojournalism when it comes to wedding photography, I tend to focus more on anticipation of moments between people and capturing expressions. This can sometimes cause me to be a bit weak when it comes to detail shots. This was not the case though for Page and John's wedding recently at Palmetto Bluff near Hilton Head, South Carolina. This wedding truly was about the details, and they were all in place. From the ruins decorated in flowers to the antique china to the gospel choir, everything was thought out thoroughly. It made for a truly dramatic day full of eye candy for the bride, the groom, the guests, and especially me. Here are some details and moments of the day.
Jessica and William got married yesterday at the Summerville Presbyterian Church in Summerville, South Carolina. Originally the plan was to get married at Hunting Island State Park near Beaufort, but between the possibility of thunderstorms and the 95 degree heat, the venue was changed last minute. It was definitely for the best. The location was great, and everything came together. I've done some trash the dress sessions before, but I've never done a trash the bouquet (I think we might have invented that yesterday). Jess beat Will over the head with the bouquet for some truly hilarious shots. Here's a couple shots from the wedding, one serious, the other fun. Enjoy.
Recently I was able to do a shoot pictures of Topher Maraffi for Beaufort Lifestyle Magazine. At first, I really wasn't sure what I was going to shoot. The setting at the local college really didn't lend itself to doing great pictures. But then I found out that he also did tango dancing at a local studio. I brought my lighting setup over to the studio, and was able to shoot Topher and his dance partner Marcia doing the tango. I ended up with some shots I'm very happy with. Here's a few of them for you.
