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.
