Beautiful Afternoon wedding at Wachesaw Plantation

It’s been a while since I’ve been to Wachesaw Plantation for a wedding. It’s a really pretty wedding site on the Waccamaw River, it’s especially nice at sunset the way the light filters through the many trees. The bride and groom at this wedding wanted to do a first look so they could get most of the wedding pictures done before the ceremony. That is actually a nice way to do things because the couple can start having fun as soon as the ceremony is over. This also means though that most of the pictures would be done earlier in the day …

50th anniversary vow renewal at the Myrtle Beach State Park

This was a very nice family to work with. They let me know that instead of just doing family pictures, the grandfather wanted to surprise his wife by doing a short vow renewal service at the end. They were a very sweet older couple that you could tell loved each other a lot, and they were quite fun to do pictures with.

It turned out to not be the best evening, it starting raining and there was some nearby lightning, but it never got so bad that we had to stop. A little rain doesn’t bother my camera because the higher end gear is all water sealed. You might notice a number of the pictures are in black and white, which is a good way to hide when the sky is gloomy or the lighting isn’t too nice. However a cloudy sky can give a nice soft look to the pictures, so it’s not necessarily a bad thing. We were afraid of rain so for the vow renewal we went over to a shelter, of course the florescent lights are also not the best but it wasn’t completely dark so it worked out fine. Please comment at the end of the post if you enjoy the pictures.
