Laura + Erik {E-session}=A Perfect Match {Rock Hill Wedding Photographer}

It’s getting rare to see a couple that are high school sweethearts. Even more rare for them to be from two different countries. He is from Germany and she is from the Dominican Republic. These two met at summer camp over five years ago and in just a few short weeks will be having a destination wedding at the historic Charleston Place Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina.

I am so excited to introduce Laura + Erik. She and Erik drove from her home in Greenville to Rock Hill for a fabulous engagement session. The weather tried to play tricks on us, but when we were finally able to work it out, the weather was gorgeous and so are Erik and Laura. In no time at all we had so many great shots, that we stopped earlier than planned and had a great lunch together at the Olive Garden. Yum!

Congrats Erik + Laura! Can’t wait to see you on your big day!

SPOTLIGHT: South Carolina Heart Gallery + Kids Stealing My HEART <3

Sometimes things happen that are out of the blue, but they touch you so deeply that you can’t ignore them. That’s the case with South Carolina Heart Gallery. Kids in need have always held a special place in my heart. It goes back to my wonderful parents teaching me to care for the less fortunate and those in need. So when a colleague of mine told me about SCHG, I was on board immediately. I asked Program Assistant, Mary Smyrl to help me explain just what SCHG is and it’s purpose:

South Carolina Heart Gallery uses the power of photography to help find adoptive homes for children lingering in foster care. Children in foster care who are legally free and waiting for adoption are referred by DSS. Local photographers donate their services to provide beautiful black and white portraits of the children, reflecting each child’s unique spirit and personality. The portraits are displayed in public venues around the state and on the Heart Gallery website at http://www.scheartgallery.org . Each child also receives an small album with an assortment of the photos taken of them.

Begun in New Mexico in 2001, Heart Gallery is now a national program. South Carolina Heart Gallery was founded in 2005 by Millie Qualls, Program Coordinator, and is a special partnership between the Children’s Foster Care Review Board and the SC Department of Social Services (DSS).

Please take the time to check out their website or Facebook page. Getting the word out there will go a long way in finding a child a home.

Hanna and Carly + The Abandoned House {Charleston Fashion Photography}

Sometimes getting lost has its rewards. While looking for the location of a recent shoot, I found a little abandoned house. I have a ‘thing’ for abandoned buildings. I guess it’s the history and the mystery that draws me in. Bringing Hanna and Carly there was the best decision I’d made that weekend. Take a look.

Fun in the Sun + PPG {Santee South Carolina Photographers}

Some of you know that I am part of an awesome group of photographers called the Portrait Photography Group. We are from all skill levels from casual photography for fun to professional portrait, wedding or fashion photography. I love this group and helping others realize their dreams. Most of our meetings take place locally and include learning opportunities and many genres of photography opportunities. A couple of times a year we try to find a unique destination for ‘shoot-outs’ to give everyone a chance to have ample opportunities to get some great photos and socialize with each other.

We always have a great time! Here’s an image I got of a couple that just happened to show up at just the right time:

One of our group members got really excited when this biker went roaring down the street. She mentioned enjoying the wind in her hair and how lucky the woman was to have those ‘guns’ to hold on to. 😀 We had a great time with these two. Thanks Brittany and Todd for hanging out with us for a while.

 

THE END. 😀

Amber + The Field {Charleston Photographer}

Rain has many benefits, I know. I really don’t mind rain. I just wish it didn’t always seem to interfere with my plans….That being said, at least I can catch up on some long awaited blog posts. And with that, you can dream of warmer days. 😀

Here’s Amber. A completely gorgeous, vibrant redhead that was so much fun to shoot. I was really in love with this vintage dress. She found it at her aunt’s home just a few days before. It was her grandmother’s dress. Just gorgeous!

 

Don’t forget to schedule your session now!
