Wedding in Litchfield on Intracoastal Waterway

Last week’s wedding was at such a pretty spot. It was a private home right on the waterway in the Litchfield, Pawleys Island area, about 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach.  It’s too bad this isn’t a regular spot for weddings, although the homeowner did say he has had about 20 weddings there, various family and friends.  I can certainly see why.  Everything went really nice as well, there was the most beautiful sunset over the waterway, you can see below many of my favorite pictures feature that sunset.  The only slight problem was during the ceremony, the brides face was in complete shade, and the grooms was in bright sun.  Thankfully after a few minutes either he or the sun moved enough that it worked out fine.  This however is a good thing to keep in mind when planning your wedding location.  If one person’s face is in the sun, and one in the shade, either one face has to be really dark, or one really blown out and bright.  It’s just the way a camera works.  I can adjust for it some.  But you need to make sure the bride and groom are both in the shade or both in the sun for the best results.  It’s usually best not to have partial sun as well, for example the head in the shade and body in the sun.  Some things to keep in mind.  Of course nothing can be planned perfectly, that is why you’ve got to have a photographer that is used to dealing with this type of thing, if you let a camera decide everything  itself you can really have a mess.  I hope you enjoy some of the pictures below.
