Groom leaning back bride for a kiss by the lake - Kingston Plantation Myrtle Beach

Springtime wedding on the lawn at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort

The Hilton Resort in Myrtle Beach is always a great place to photograph a wedding. It’s been a little over a year since my last wedding at the Hilton. That previous wedding was on the beach sand instead of the lawn so if you are interested in fun beach pictures at the Hilton check out last year’s wedding. The ceremony for this latest wedding was held on the lawn behind the Hilton Resort next to the gazebo. This is a very pretty area and there is always some nice shade from the hotel towers even a little earlier in the …

Hilton at Kingston Plantation wedding with a ceremony on the beach

This was the first time I’ve photographed a wedding at the Myrtle Beach Hilton at Kingston Plantation where the couple had a ceremony on the beach sand.

Try out some searches and see what you find. You might have noticed that my website has gone through some changes. It should be speedy …

Wedding at Embassy Suites, Kingston Plantation

I had another wedding at Kingston Plantation up in North Myrtle Beach this past weekend.  Everything went really smoothly. I think it was the largest wedding party I’ve ever had.  I actually just looked at one of the pictures again to count, it looks like 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen.  I had to do one shot during the wedding ceremony where I combined three different pictures into a panorama to get the entire wedding party without seeing the backs of the audience.  Photoshop is amazing for stitching panoramas like that.  One of my favorite shots below was the party pretending to play …
