Sunset engagement pictures at the historic waterfront in Georgetown, SC

This was the first time I’ve done any engagement portraits at the historic waterfront area of Georgetown. I think it’s just the distance and the fact that most people are more interested in the beach that I haven’t made it over that way. I personally do so much at the beach I always like when I get to do something different.

The historic Georgetown waterfront area is going to give you a similar look to doing engagement pictures at the Conway River Walk. You still have a lot of trees, historic looking shops, and a boardwalk on the water. The main thing you don’t have at Georgetown that you have in Conway is the train tracks that can make for some really cool pictures.  Otherwise there are a lot of things I like better in Georgetown. At least for this time of the year there was a really nice sunset going down over the water, all the boats at the marina make for a nice background, and the shops are better for walking around and doing pictures.  Be sure to let me know if you enjoy the pictures below, and if a couple wants to try out Historic Georgetown for their engagement pictures let me know.

Fun sunset pictures with the bride and groom at Holden Beach, NC

This is the first time I’ve been up to Holden Beach in NC for a wedding. This wedding was for a couple that was bringing together their two families with adult children. Everyone just seemed really happy and got along great. That always makes things easier for me. The wedding was held at a really pretty private home on the ocean. It was quite a long walk from the beach house down to the actual ocean. The area behind the house was huge and just full of dunes and sea oats, as well as a small lake surrounded by tall grass. This was actually one of the prettiest beach spots I think I’ve seen. It makes you realize how much they have ruined the Myrtle Beach area. All the houses and hotels are stuck almost on the ocean, it has just ruined the beach and dunes. I guess there is nothing that can be done about it now except occasional beach re-nourishment when they pump sand out of the ocean. I decided for this post to highlight just one part of the wedding, pictures of the couple that we did at sunset. The whole afternoon I had been looking at spots and thinking about what it would look like at sunset. After spending some time at the reception the couple walked back down to the beach with me right around sunset time, like usual we only had a few minutes. The angle of the sun to the ocean is different here than it is in Myrtle Beach. That is why there are a lot of cool shots with the sun going down over the ocean. There is only a brief time during the winter when the sun’s angle will be like that here. I just love in the pictures below the way the sunset reflects off the edge of the water, as well as the ones of it going down behind the lake. If you like these pictures please comment and ‘like’ the post, it encourages me to post more often. A couple of these shots have been touched up, but most have not. I hope you enjoy them.

Changing Sunset

As a quick post, if I did this right it should show up on my blog but not on the homepage of my site.  I’m testing that out.  Before I started photography I never paid much attention to how the sunset position changes over the year.  But it really is a big deal on the beach.  I’ve realized this time of year you have to be careful because the normal laying in front of the dunes position might not work correctly.  In the summer the sun goes down behind the dunes, in the winter it starts going down along the …
