Jess and Adam’s springtime ceremony on the patio by the palm trees and pool at the Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach

We had a hot and windy day at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach for this May wedding. I started out getting some great shots with Wing Wong of Salon and Spa 18 doing the bride’s hair. I also got to work with Luminous Event Films for the first time, he was great to work with as well. It’s always nice when the photographer and videographer can get along really well. Broadway Jake was the DJ, Croissants Bistro and Bakery made the cake, and Flowers in the Forest did the beautiful bouquets and flowers. I have all these …

Laci and Justin’s May wedding on the Ocean Club Balcony with a emotional first look

I had a very busy May this year with 4 weddings at The Ocean Club in the Grande Dunes. I already featured the first of my May weddings in a blog post here. I talked about some new flash equipment and my photo booth, so please check it out. Laci and Justin’s wedding was held on an unusually hot day for the month of May. Thankfully, down by the ocean, you almost always get a nice breeze. I started out with my usual pictures of all the dresses hanging in the beautiful windows upstairs in the clubhouse. I also got …

Beautiful summer wedding at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach with my photo booth service

I have been keeping busy lately with weddings at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach. This wedding was the first of four weddings there just in the month of May!

This wedding was also organized by Stunning and Brilliant Events and the DJ was Scott and Company. I also got some nice shots of Wing from Salon 18 and Spa doing the bride’s hair before the ceremony. I’ve worked with …

Beautiful Ocean Club wedding with a bride and groom from Colombia

I really enjoyed this recent wedding for Camilio and Natalia at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach. The bride and groom are both originally from the country of Colombia just like my wife. In fact the groom was from the city of Bogota, the same city my wife is from. I spent a month last year staying with my wife’s family in Bogota, I made a recent blog post about my trip here. In fact, if you visit my Photo Booth at a wedding, I have a real Colombian sombrero and poncho you can try on that I …

Fun but windy wedding day at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club & a new photo booth

It’s great to be back at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach, this was my first wedding of 2018 at this location. It’s also great to be working again with some of the best wedding vendors in Myrtle Beach. The wedding planner Sarah McCall of Stunning and Brilliant Events, DJ Ryan Robinson of Globaltruth Entertainment and Samantha Huff at the Ocean Club. I’m making this blog post in the middle of Hurricane Florence so I’m really hoping my power stays on, it’s only a category 1 now so I’m not too worried.  While it wasn’t hurricane force winds for …

Fun beach wedding with a large bridal party – Ocean Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach

I always have a lot of fun photographing weddings at the Ocean Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. My latest beach wedding for Sara and John was no exception. Sara had me arrive a little earlier then usual to start taking pictures, about 2 1/2 hours before the ceremony. This turned out to be a good idea with 11 groomsmen and 9 bridesmaids in the party! I always warn my couples if you have a really big bridal party, plan on everything running an hour later than you think. Samantha, the wedding coordinator at the Ocean Club, had the …

Wedding day photography on a windy day at the remodeled Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach

This is my first time photographing a wedding at the remodeled Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach. It always looked nice, but they did make some changes that give a lot more space inside the ballroom and dining area. They completely removed the fireplace which really opens up the area for a larger number of guests and more tables. They also painted everything, put down new carpets, lights and other things.  One of the changes I especially noticed, because I do a lot of pictures there, is the new doors at the front. The glass doors really do make a …

Windy wedding day with a beautiful bride on the Veranda of the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach

I’m in my really slow time of the year now, so I thought I would go back to one of my fall weddings I didn’t have time to post yet on my blog. This wedding was at one of my most frequented locations, the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach. This couple was extremely easy going and just happy and having fun the whole day. I think it helped that it was a small bridal party which always makes things a little less stressful. I loved the bride’s dress, it had a lot of unique detailing up top, I …

Busy weekend with weddings at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club

I keep going more and more often to the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach for wedding photography. I’m not quite sure why, but it’s by far my most visited location.  The weekend of this wedding I actually had three other weddings at the Ocean Club, as well as one the following week. The nice thing is I get to know all the staff as well as all the good picture spots really well.  As I mentioned in one of my earlier blog posts, during this ceremony I also setup a camera on the upstairs balcony to shoot pictures during the entire …

Wedding on the Terrace at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach

The Ocean Club at the Grande Dunes is one of my most frequented wedding locations. I really appreciate that they have me on their vendor list because I often have clients contact me from seeing the list.  Actually the Grande Dunes preferred vendor list is a pretty good one, they seem to list some of the really good photographers and vendors in the area.  I heard years ago they made vendors pay to be included on this list, but it hasn’t been that way in a long time.  You can never trust a paid vendor list so I’m glad they don’t do that …
