Bride and groom with clubhouse in the background - Members Club at Grande Dunes

Wedding for a pro bodybuilder and NFL player at the Grande Dunes Members Club

I was recently working on an example photo album for Vasilika, the catering manager at the Grande Dunes Members Club. Be sure to check the album out if visiting the Members Club to book a wedding. When looking for pictures I came across this wedding from a few years back. I miss posting pictures to my blog from many past weddings because I get so busy. This was a fun and unique wedding so I thought it deserved it’s own post! The bride was a retired professional bodybuilder and the groom was a retired NFL Player so they were a …

Bride and groom with a reflection in the lake - Members Club - Grande Dunes

Beautiful wedding at the Members Club at Grande Dunes with the bride, groom and their children

This week I’m featuring another beautiful wedding I was the photographer for at the Members Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. I like that I’m photographing more weddings lately at the Members Club, it’s a really beautiful location on the golf course with a great interior and large ballroom. This bride and groom had both been married previously and they had their children as part of the wedding party. The bride’s daughter was one of the bridesmaids, so I got some very sweet pictures of her helping her mom put on the veil and helping her with the dress …

First kiss - Members Club at Grande Dunes

Sunset wedding on the patio at the Members Club at Grande Dunes

I always love going to the Grande Dunes Members Club for weddings. It’s a beautiful clubhouse located on the golf course inside the Grande Dunes. This bride wore a stunning lace-covered ball gown. This is a perfect dress for getting pictures of the bride standing in a doorway with the full dress flowing out behind her. It was also great working with some of my favorite wedding vendors, including Sara from Stunning and Brilliant Events and DJ Scott and Company. I began the day by taking pictures of the bride’s wedding dress and other details. I always love photos of …

Highlights from the last few weeks and the importance of a good DJ

I haven’t made a wedding-specific blog post recently, and I’ve been wanting to put up something new. I always get so busy in the summer. So I just decided to quickly pull out of my collection a few shots I liked from the last few weeks of August. These come from family beach pictures at the Myrtle Beach State Park, the mother of a bride I had last year getting married at the Grande Dunes Member’s Club, a wedding for a military groom at Brunswick Plantation in NC, and a wedding reception in Florence, SC. There is a lot in this …

Traditional Indian bride sitting on floor looking up - Grande Dunes Members Club

Traditional Indian Wedding at the Grande Dunes Myrtle Beach

I did my first traditional Indian wedding at the Grande Dunes Members Club in Myrtle Beach.  It was an experience I’ll always remember and a really beautiful event. It’s amazing how intricate and heavy an Indian wedding dress is.  I loved how many colors there were during the ceremony with the bride’s dress and the flowers. I think my favorite shot was the bride walking down the aisle and the groom still hidden from her view. My new Nikon 70-200 f2.8 lens really makes this picture pop. I also loved the picture of the bride from overhead, where you can see all the details …
