Fashion with Passion… Had a blast working with my models Gwen and Olivia at Taylors Mill in Taylors South Carolina. With hair and make up provided by the talented Melissa Aubil of Cotton Rouge and company these girls looked amazing. Here we see Gwen rocking the Steam Punk look and owning her pose. I also enlisted two off camera lighting assistants and a fashion consultant. It was great to work with such a talented team and get photos that capture this historic setting.
With Hurricane Matthew providing the wind and Emily and Aaron providing the love, this was one awesome wedding! A beautiful service at The Chapel at The Cliffs at Glassy followed by a way cool brunch reception at The Grove At Pennington these two did it up right and were so fun to work with. And the weather provided the perfect backdrop for this photograph made at the top of the Cliffs at Glassy Mountain, SC.
As a photographer, I am allowed access to private and intimate moments. Sadly the Bride's Grandmother had lost her husband just days earlier. This photograph captures her strength and shows the love she has for her granddaughter to attend the wedding as a family member holds her hand.
I love working with musicians. They have the confidence and personality that make great portraits. Here Billy Strings poses in afternoon light in front of a vintage Ford truck at the Albino Skunk Music Festival in Greer, SC last week. You might want to check out this up and coming artist at www.billystrings.com or see more live music at www.albinoskunk.com
With a little post production this Farm House interior in Pickens County shows details inside and out. Colors are important to owners and prospective buyers, by adding off camera lighting, I was able to render accurate colors for the MLS listing.
