Veil blowing in the wind under the wedding arch in strong direct sun - Beach House in Pawleys Island

Intimate beach house wedding with a reception at The Village House in Litchfield

It’s been a while since I posted pictures from a beach house wedding on my blog, so I thought this recent intimate wedding in Pawleys Island would be a great opportunity. Kristi and Che had a beautiful beach house near the southern end of Pawleys Island at 492 Myrtle Ave. This house is unique, surrounded by dense trees and foliage pushing up against either side, and has beautiful shaded views from the porches and beach walkway. At this wedding, I was working with my favorite videographer, Jerry, from Luminous Event Films. They also had Ash Events for wedding planning and …

Portraits of bride and groom on the grassy hill with the Grande Dunes bridge in the background - The Marina Inn

Intimate Spring Wedding at The Marina Inn at Grande Dunes

I’ve had many beautiful weddings in Myrtle Beach during 2023, but I had little time to post them to my blog. I wanted to highlight this wedding from May 5th for Susan and Chris at The Marina Inn at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. It’s been a few years since I photographed a wedding here, so I thought it was time to feature this venue. The Marina Inn is a luxury hotel with beautiful views overlooking a marina on the Intracoastal Waterway, with the Grande Dunes golf course and bridge in the background. This wedding with Susan and Chris was …

Kiss on the cheek - Litchfield Country Club

Vintage wedding styles at Litchfield Country Club in Pawleys Island

With my photography work slowing down, I finally have time to post more pictures from some of my favorite weddings in 2023. This was a small, intimate wedding on October 8th for Madison, Caleb, and their daughter as the flower girl. I loved the vintage old Hollywood style of the bride and groom with the bride’s bright red lipstick and the groom’s pinstripe suit. They were an amazing couple, and I took some beautiful sunset pictures of them on the golf course at Litchfield Country Club in Pawleys Island. When I arrived for their Sunday wedding, I was happy it …

Snuggles in the sunset - Litchfield Country Club

Intimate wedding at Litchfield Country Club in Pawleys Island

I’ve been photographing many more weddings recently at Litchfield Country Club in Pawleys Island. I had such a busy October this year, with seven weddings in just the first two weekends, two of which were at Litchfield County Club. It’s a great location with a beautiful area for the ceremony in front of some ancient oak trees and lots of foliage and greenery. I knew this would be a minimal, intimate wedding without a reception, and I was happy to have an early evening off with so many back-to-back weddings. I capture some of my favorite pictures with brides and …

Romantic portraits of bride and groom through the trees - Pine Lakes Country Club

Spring Wedding at Pine Lakes Country Club in Myrtle Beach

It was great to be back at Pine Lakes Country Club for the wedding of Emily and Fin. We had lovely Spring weather for their April 29th date, except for some thunderstorms rolling in at the end of the day. My last wedding at Pine Lake Country Club was in the fall of 2020. It was a beautiful wedding facing the back of the clubhouse, but its size had to be drastically cut back because of Covid. It’s nice to be there when everything is back to normal. When I arrived, I checked in with Emily and got her dress, …

Dip back for a kiss - The Cooper House

Wedding under the live oak at The Cooper House in Myrtle Beach

This was my first wedding at The Cooper House Event Venue. This is located right near an old swing bridge on the Intracoastal Waterway in a town called Socastee, which is a little inland from Myrtle Beach. I live very close to this area, and I always drive by this location. I’ve seen signs for The Cooper House, but I had no idea there was such a lovely wedding venue at the site. The Cooper House is a rustic, southern farm-style venue with a historic house for the bride and groom to get ready and an open barn area for …

Big smiles under the mossy oaks - Safe Harbor Reserve Harbor Yacht Club

Wedding under the moss covered oaks at the Reserve Harbor Marina Clubhouse

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve photographed a wedding at what used to be called the Reserve Harbor Yacht Club in Pawleys Island. It seems like they have changed their name. It’s now the Safe Harbor Reserve Harbor Marina Clubhouse. This location highlights the beauty of the Pawleys Island area, with the ancient oak trees covered in moss and a boardwalk through the forest that goes out onto the Waccamaw River. I love these Pawleys Island scenic spots where you can get that warm glow of the sunset filtering through the mossy trees in the background. Hurricane Ian …

Groom pushing back bride's hair for a kiss - North Beach Resort & Villas

Intimate wedding on the beach at the North Beach Resort & Villas

I’ve done many weddings and family portraits session on the beach behind the North Beach Resort (formerly North Beach Plantation) towers. These towers are located at the very south end of North Myrtle Beach across from Barefoot Landing. This wedding was unique for me, in that the reception was also held in the Blu Lounge inside the Indigo Tower. Most of my weddings at this location have their reception back at 21 Main Events. This reception in the Blu Lounge was still catered by the 21 Main Events staff, so of course the food and service was really good. First …
