Wedding at Brookgreen Gardens

I did my first wedding at Brookgreen Gardens, it’s such a great location for a wedding. We were kind of short on time for the couple portraits, but it didn’t take long to get some fantastic shots. I seemed to have made a good impression on the wedding coordinator for the gardens, she is putting me on her vendor list. I’m beginning to think my photography is starting to rival a lot of the other big guys in the area.

Bridal Portraits, Members Club at the Grande Dunes, Myrtle Beach

I did some beautiful bridal portraits after my Indian wedding at the Grande Dunes.  The members club is a great spot with the golf course out back.

Of course you can never beat the light coming in from a big window.  I hope you enjoy some of them below.

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 …
