Becky & D.R. - HAPPY 1st ANNIVERSARY!!!

Time flies by so darn fast!  It has already been a whole year since I was in Ocean Isle Beach photographing Becky & D.R.‘s wedding! These two kept us, and everyone else, laughing all night long.  On the way to Ocean Isle Beach where their ceremony was being held, we got stuck in a big traffic jam.  No problem…Becky was calm and we  just used the opportunity to take some pictures both inside and outside of the limo :-)  Their reception was held at Silver Coast Winery (beautiful) and when we arrived there, the fun REALLY started!  Becky & D.R. — Your wedding was GREAT! Congratulations on your first year.  I know you two will have a lifetime of happiness together :-)

Stacie & Chris

It’s so cool to be a part of two families uniting together.  These people have it going on, because not only do they have to figure out their own relationship, but relationships with children as well.  You have to be pretty together to figure out all that!  Stacie & Chris …. yup.  They got it :-)  Not only were their children there and happy about their marriage, but they were even a part of the sand blending ceremony!  Good luck to you all, and thanks so much for letting me be a part of this very special day!

1 Year Ago Today :-)

Happy first year anniversary to Justin & Heather!!!  You guys are an amazing couple.Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years.Simone Signoret

Trash the Dress for Mandy ( & Jason too)

Yes… my beautiful bride Mandy was ready for a trash the dress session soon after her wedding.  Fun, fun fun!   They are such an adorable couple!  Just look…...

Mandy & Jason - Ocean Creek Resort

Did you know that a little rain on your wedding day is good luck in many cultures?  The idea?  A wet knot is harder to untie than a dry one.  As Mandy got ready for her beautiful beach wedding at Ocean Creek Resort, the dark clouds started rolling in.  It was going to be close.  We walked to the beach, a few little sprinkles falling here and there, but yes!  It held off for the ceremony. The reception was wonderful and everyone there had a blast!  Mandy and Jason make a great couple, and have wonderful supportive families.  I know they will have a long and happy life together :-)  Thanks guys —  It was truly a pleasure!  Coming soon…. their Trash the Dress Session!!

Misty & Ryan - Ocean Isle Beach

Misty & Ryan live in Texas.  Misty is from this area, and I am so glad them came back to get married right here on beautiful Ocean Isle Beach.  She is so fun and lively and bubbly, and she and Ryan just make a wonderful couple!  Check out her beautiful dress —- a friend of hers, Donnie Sanders, who is a costume designer in New York City designed this dress especially for Misty.  Beautiful!  Thanks guys, for letting me share such a special day with you and getting to know you a little better.  I had a blast!

2010 Contest Winners -- Jenna & Matthew!

You may remember that last December we gave away a $2000. wedding photography package.  Matthew and Jenna were the winners by an overwhelming vote!  STAY we will be doing it again this year for a 2011 couple.  Subscribe to our blog to be the first to hear all about it! 2011 Theme…Greatest Love Story :)Jenna is from Ontario Canada and met Matthew while both were lifeguarding in Myrtle Beach in the summer of 2005.  They quickly fell in love, but for the next 3 years had to maintain a long distance relationship, as Matthew lived in North Carolina.  In 2008, when both had graduated from college, they went to South Korea and spent a year teaching English.  It was there that Matthew proposed to Jenna.  Their wedding date, May 21st, is the very same day they first met in Myrtle Beach!This was indeed a beautiful wedding.  Jenna picked out a true Cinderella wedding gown, and she looked lovely!  I loved her colors of yellow and pink. Their friends and families gathered together for this long awaited celebration, and all were so very happy and excited for them.  They were so fun to work with, and it truly was a great pleasure for me to be able to record a part of their wonderful love story.  Jenna & Matthew…... Thank you!  I wish for you many, many, many years of happiness together :)

Angela & Brian's Perfect Day

The greatest compliment a photographer can ever get, is when someone changes their wedding date based on your availability! Wow. I was so honored by this wonderful couple. And it was me who was the lucky one to be able to share this incredible day with Angela and Brian.From the minute I arrived, I knew Angela had dreamed of a beautiful beach wedding. Every little detail was thought out with great care. There was an aisle on the beach made from seashells and flowers. Beach towels for the guests to sit on, personalized with Angela & Brian’s name and the date. Steel drums for music at the ceremony. Bridesmaids dresses the color of the sea….and a beautiful, sunny day. Everything was perfect. It gets so cliche’ saying ‘she was glowing’, but look at these pictures and tell me otherwise. Radiant, luminous, blooming…. she was all these adjectives and more.This couple is the kind that every photographer dreams of photographing. They were relaxed, fun, spontaneous …. and the cameras loved them both. And yes. They radiated with love :-) In fact, had a hurricane had swept into Myrtle Beach on April 30th at 4:30pm, no one there would of noticed.Angela & Brian are from Ohio, and will be having a reception there in June for all their family and friends, right before they move to Hilton Head, SC.Angela & Brian… were a true delight. Thank you so much for allowing us to share this day with you. It’s one I’ll never forget. I am soooo happy you are moving down here. I know this was just the beginning of a great friendship!
