Kiss with the sunset on the marsh - Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club

Pawleys Plantation wedding with beautiful flowers, a trolly, and a great sunset on the golf course

I’ve been so busy with weddings at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club this May. This beautiful Friday afternoon was my second of five weddings at this location in the past month. We had some near-record heat for May, but it cooled down later in the day, and everyone still had a great time. Jessie from Willow Events had flowers, invitations, and other jewelry collected for detail shots when I arrived. I always recommend that brides make a collection of their details before the wedding, and I can take those pictures quickly. Since Willow Events is also a florist, there …

I always love taking portraits for Ornelie and Matt. I did photography for their African themed wedding in Raleigh a few years ago. Next, their one year anniversary portraits at the Conway Riverwalk. Now, early this year, I took their maternity portraits under the beautiful mossy oaks at Caledonia Golf and Fish Club in Pawleys Island. Ornelie and Matt asked me to hold off for a few months on posting pictures of their pregnancy.
