It’s time for me to start posting some of the weddings and photos shoots that I have the opportunity to be a part of. So my first one to share is an amazing Navy bride and groom. From meeting them, to their engagement photos to their wedding, they were fun, happy and definitely in love!  Truly an awesome couple!   Their wedding was at Maple Leaf Events Center, which is a beautiful venue. If you’re looking for a nice venue in the Columbia… Read more »

      Valentine’s Day isn’t the easiest day to come up with gift ideas for.  I mean there’s always the typical flowers and chocolates, but what about something different this year?  If you looking for something that will last longer than that box of Godiva, I’m running a couple specials through the month of January (2016) that can help!  And here are the details:   Valentine’s Boudoir Session     Why not give yourself or someone else a little black book of… Read more »

All too often I hear or see people mentioning photography as, “just taking a photo” or “clicking a button.”  Then there is, “my friend has a camera, I’ll just have them take my photos.”  Oh my, I hear that one a lot.  It usually comes right after someone is struggling with cost.  The unfortunate reality is that not everyone with a nice camera is a photographer.  And, good photography isn’t cheap.  I’d like to explain just a couple reasons why the prices myself (or… Read more »
