Wedding, Family & Engagement

As a local Myrtle Beach photographer I specialize in beautiful, candid and fun wedding, engagement and family photography for the Grand Strand area of SC. I like clean, crisp and colorful images that capture moments in a way that can only be done with skillful and modern techniques using the latest high-end photography gear. I only use prime lenses on full frame camera bodies which give my pictures a unique look you can easily see in my galleries. I personally shoot every photography session and my goal is to always capture genuine emotions using a storytelling approach mixed with traditional posed portraits. As one of the best local Myrtle Beach professional photographers for over 10 years, I know the area well, and I do whatever I can to make sure my clients are happy. Please find out more below.
