Long Overdue Update

It's been over a year since we relocated from Charleston to Greenville, SC and we are loving life in the upstate! I'm not sure where to begin with all the news, so here they are in no particular order. We almost moved to Chapel Hill, NC. It's a nice area, but it's no Greenville. Ultimately we decided to stay in South Carolina, closer to family, friends and better cycl[...]

Featured by Leica: Inside the 'Pearl of Africa'

I am honored to have my photographs of Uganda featured on Leica's blog. Be sure to check them out and read our little Q&A session. Thank you to everyone that helped make this trip a reality. I want to go back, but also challenge myself to make pictures like this in little ole Greenville, SC. Whether your organization is big or small, I would love to speak with[...]

the one camera that i regret selling...

Some of my favorite pictures are made with a Rolleiflex. Pictures of me and my wife, pictures I've made and pictures made by other photographers all have involved the beautiful twin lens reflex camera that's decades old. If you ever get a chance to own one, or use one, don't hesitate. They're built like tanks and the results are outstanding. While not necessary, i[...]

my love/hate for film photography

I love the results, but hate the process of film photography. Mailing film off to be developed, then waiting for its return and results. But sometimes I let rolls of undeveloped film pile up and time passes, so when the film comes back it is almost a new discovery of what I've photographed in the past. Here are some pictures made with a camouflage plastic toy came[...]

Holli & Robert · Nottoway Plantation Wedding

I had the honor to photograph Holli and Robert's wedding at Nottoway Plantation in White Castle, Louisiana (between Baton Rouge and New Orleans) just before New Years Eve of 2015. The abundance of porches kept us dry from the afternoon showers and made for a great backdrop to make their pictures.

Meet Lucy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwHRdeSZgG0 My wife and I have wanted a dog for a long time now, but not having a yard and her being in school, kept us from making the commitment to a four legged friend. If you find yourself in a similar position, simply dog sit for all of your friends! You'll love it and so will your friends. Anyway, with school behind us and a ni[...]

Waterfalls at DuPont State Forest & Sunset at Caesars Head

I took a little trip the other week with a friend of mine to visit DuPont State Forest. We were biking in freezing temperatures, but that didn't stop us from taking the scenic route and checking out a few of the waterfalls inside the forest. Most, if not all are easily accessible and definitely worth a look if you enjoy the outdoors. It just so happened to be the [...]

Portraits at Home · Charleston, SC

It was a treat to make pictures for this beautiful and artistic family in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Their back porch and yard made a perfect backdrop for their family photographs. I only wish that I had had more time to really check out their paintings, because their work is quite amazing. Take a look: here and here.

Miriam & Nathan · Birmingham, AL Wedding

The beautiful/quirky/awesome couple, Miriam & Nathan were married at Trinity UMC of Homewood in the Birmingham, Alabama area. It was a great setting for their daytime ceremony and reception, spent with their friends and family. We also spent some time at Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Avondale Brewing Company for their luncheon and rehearsal dinner. It was a[...]

Snow in Greenville!

Because we live in the South, exclamation points for a few inches of snow is appropriate. Snow is a rarity here in Greenville, so the entire town shut down for a few days while the snow plows attempted to clear the major roadways. My wife and I went on a long walk all around downtown and the camera came along for the ride. Hope you had a great time playing in this[...]

Courtney & Clayton · Savannah ·GA

I just want to extend thanks to Courtney and Clayton for having me photograph your wedding at Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah, GA. It was a lovely day, followed by an afternoon garden reception at the historic Harper Fowlkes House. Downtown Savannah is a fantastic place for weddings, especially when you can make pictures in the lovely squares, and walk[...]
