I met the Thompson family on Memorial Day at Folly Beach. They were a super laid-back crowd. I really enjoyed meeting their mother, who introduced herself as the family matriarch and told me that her four children now lived in four different time zones. She had great stories about her kids in their younger days. Honestly, that’s one of my favorite parts about doing extended family shoots. I generally have one person who kind of briefs me about everyone else; their relationships, the last time they saw each other, whether they fought when they were little kids, what their talents were, where they went to college, etc. It’s fun to get somebackground info.
I love this one. It says Folly to me. Someone in a pretty dress, someone flying through the air, and someone drinking a beer.

Melissa and Serg have a fairy-tale story.
Have you ever been on a trip to a new and exotic (to you) location, and you think how romantic it would be to look across a crowded room and see your future husband? And you overcome culture and language and citizenship barriers to be together, because as a couple, you were both meant to be, and unstoppable?
That’s these two. Pretty cool. They met when Melissa was on a mission trip in Costa Rica a few years ago and have been together ever since. This year, Sergio moved to the U.S. to be with Melissa, who just graduated from MUSC’s PA program.
Getting ready at Belazza Salon and Spa :
Uninvited, misbehaving guests. Gnats. They have no sense of decorum. What can you do?
Gorgeous, vibrant flowers from the Charleston Flower Market.
These are from the bride and groom session we did the Wednesday before the wedding.
Cake by The Cake Stand. I’ve never seen a design quite like this one and I loved it.
