Moorman Family, Atalya Castle, Murrells Inlet

Low country offers so many beautiful backdrops for family portraits.  The locations are endless as I learn everyday.  People from all over the country, heck, the world, to relax and marvel at the wide beautiful beaches and the historical nature of our coastal region here.

When someone contacts me to do a family portrait…especially when there are young ones, I always say, let’s get the formal family photos done first.  Then we can have fun!  The children, depending on their ages, basically run the show.  It’s all about managing expectations.  And the fun just keeps on and on!

Thank you Anna for reaching me to do this for your inlaws!  Your girls are so shy!!  Ha ha!!

I love my job.

Victoria and Grant, Married!

New England never disappoints with beautiful historic venues for couples.  Pierce Farm was an impressive location, as much as the couple!  Victoria and Grant were married in the garden on the grounds of this 19th century Gentlemen’s farm.  They entertained their guests on the lawn overlooking the spectacular mansion in its glory during cocktail hour, while portraits were being taken.  The reception was held in the post and beam barn on the side of the property.

Needless to say, I fell in love with this couple instantly!  The love shared between them and all of their families and friends was undeniable!  Congratulations to the beautiful couple!  Thank you for having me spend your day with you!

Special thanks to Stephanie Killmeier Dozois for photographing this day with me.

 

Melissa and Steve, Married!

Here are Melissa and Steve, Mr. and Mrs. Young!!  Now this, was a wedding!  Melissa and I are pretty close to being family, as we worked together for a number of years at Headlines Salon and Day Spa.  I was so excited that she wanted me to photograph her wedding, for a multitude of reasons.  The most important, she had found the love of her life, and I loved hearing about him and all of the things he was bringing to their relationship.  I had only met Steve in passing, but had heard so much about him and his family that I just knew this would be something special.  He was her lumberjack from New Hampshire with a huge heart.  The photos speak for themselves.  I was moved by all of Melissa’s personal touches that she put into this heartfelt day, her excitement was completely infectious.  And by it being held at his family house…..a quintessential New Hampshire colonial with a detached barn chock full of collectible goodies, worthy of auctions that you see on television.  I couldn’t wait.  And, I was ultimately moved by the love shown by him and his family to her and hers.  Plus, what could be better than traveling to New Hampshire for Columbus Day weekend?  And watch this beautiful union take place?  See some great friends?  Hmmmmmmm……not much.  Someone pinch me!!

Congratulations to you both.  Love you!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Rachael and Kyle, Woods Hole Golf Club

Thank God, Cape Cod!  Rachael and Kyle celebrated their union on September 16th, in Falmouth.  The newly renovated Woods Hole Golf Club was a breathtaking location for this sweet young couple.  Overlooking Buzzards Bay, it was a beautiful September day, and when the fog rolled in right before dinner and cooled off a few degrees, the atmosphere was perfect for dancing all night!  A special note of gratitude to the always amazing Laura Fontaine of Laura Fontaine Photography for her assistance and expertise.  A big thank you to Rachael’s Aunt Karen and her husband Brooks for recommending me to the couple, as I was happy to return to Falmouth to photograph this beautiful wedding!  Congratulations, you two!!
