About my Engagement Photography . . .

I specialize in fun and relaxed engagement and couple photography for Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand area. I work with the viewpoint that I'm there to make a client happy, I do whatever I can to make sure that is the case. I'm not a business that sends out different photographers, I personally do a small number of appointments each week and I do everything myself from the photography to the final proofs.

My Style as a Photographer . . .

What I do is a quite a bit different than a typical portrait photographer. I use a photojournalist style of photography. While I do suggest poses, I typically take around 200-300 shots in an hour session trying to capture the best moments and natural expressions. My favorite shots are those that don't look posed, that look like a couple being natural and truly having fun together. I really put all my effort into giving my very best work to my clients. I've had many clients tell me it was the nicest experience they have had with a photographer, I hope I can make you feel the same way.

Quality of Finished Product . . .

I notice overly processed images on many photographer's websites. Instead of relying on Photoshop filters, mixing textures, vignettes and strange color effects, I prefer clear, crisp and clean color and black and white images that can only be done with Nikon's best lenses and a expert understanding of lighting and flash. However a reasonable amount of artistic and general touchup Photoshop work and special effects on all prints or albums sides included at no charge.

Please note: Myrtle Beach does not allow professional photography on the beach within the actual city limits. North Myrtle and other areas like the State Parks my preferred locations.

The digital copies you receive as part of a package will include every picture you see displayed in your online proofs. All the images provided will have been color corrected and adjusted.  The only digital copies that will include requested Photoshop touchups, for example removing someone from the background, will be ones you've also chosen as prints or album selections.

In most cases I use a Microsoft service called SkyDrive to deliver the pictures. SkyDrive is a faster, easier and more environmentally friendly way of delivering your digital images without having to mail a CD. You can even share the link I send you with other family so they can download them as well. After ordering you will receive instructions containing the link to download the files.

You are allowed to print as many images from the digital files as you like, there is no copyright protection or watermarks.  I will provide a copyright release form on request, this is required at some locations such as Wal-Mart.
