Outdoor wedding at the Barefoot Resort Dye Club with a wild cake cutting and sparkler exit

It’s been a number of years since I’ve photographed a wedding at the Dye Club in Barefoot Resort. I’m glad to be back there for a wedding it’s a very pretty area. The Dye Club has a very traditionally elegant dining room with enough tables for a large group. I lit some of the candles …

Fun wedding on the lawn at the Hilton in Myrtle Beach

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve photographed a wedding at the Hilton in Myrtle Beach. Using the cool new search box on my website menu to the left, I put in Hilton and realized I hadn’t made a blog post for that location since 2010. By the way, my entire site is now …

Heritage Plantation wedding photography at the Clubhouse and the new Nikon D810

A few weeks ago I photographed another beautiful wedding at the Heritage Plantation clubhouse in Pawleys Island, SC.  It’s been a few years since I’ve been there, it’s a great location so hopefully I can get on their vendor list and get some more weddings at the club. A couple of fun things about this …

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 …

Early afternoon wedding photography at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club with a fun couple

Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club is one of my favorite locations that I photograph weddings at often.  The staff is very friendly and helpful and the site is great for photography. There isn’t much I can say that I haven’t said in some of my earlier blog posts about the site.  This wedding ceremony …

Pawleys Plantation wedding with a Beauty and the Beast themed reception

I always love going to Pawleys Plantation Golf Club for a wedding, it’s a very pretty area and the staff there is very nice.  I really loved the bride’s dress at this wedding, she had a Beauty and the Beast Disney theme to the dress and wedding reception.  You can see some pictures of the ballroom decorations below.  I recently got a new 14mm prime lens so I was enjoying playing around with some super wide-angle shots of the reception decorations.  Looking through the lens is so wide though I realized I was almost sticking my camera in the cake without realizing it.  It’s not the kind of lens that I will use often, but it’s fun for a few shots here and there.  I also finally got a really big case to carry all my gear. It’s the largest Lowepro rolling case they have.  It looks like a big suitcase, but inside it has dividers for photo gear.  I have my 4 camera bodies, flashes, various lenses etc. all organized together in one case.

The wedding ceremony was a few hours before sunset, so after the bride and groom finished eating I took them back out of the reception for some sunset pictures. When the days start getting longer, most ceremonies will be a while before sunset, so if possible I always try to get the couple out for some sunset pictures when the light is much softer.  At least at locations like Pawleys Plantation with a lot of trees, there is always somewhere to get some shade from the sun.  I hope you enjoy the pictures below, please let me know in the comments below if you do.
