I had some really nice looking and fun couples recently for engagement pictures at the Myrtle Beach State Park. I've wanted to put up a new blog post for a while but I just don't have time right now to post many pictures. I decided to just make a quick post from two of my sessions below. This time of the year I've really been liking the way the sun is hitting the sea oats in this one place at the State Park. There are some spots in the winter that look really cool that don't work now because of the direction of the sun, and vice versa. I never thought about in the past how much the sunset direction changes from summer to winter until I started doing photography.

Also, I just went got away for two days and did some hiking in the mountains, when I get time I'll post some of my GoPro footage, time-lapse and panoramas I shot with my Olympus OM-D. I did a 6 mile hike to one of the best views I've ever seen, I'll post some pictures soon. I better stop writing about things and get back to work, I hope you enjoy some of the pictures below. Please comment below the pictures if you do!
