Bret & Leah’s HAWAII wedding!

What an AMAZING time I (Valerie) had in Kauai, Hawaii shooting Bret & Leah’s wedding!!!!

I had never been to Hawaii before this so I never knew how much I was missing out on! The place is absolute paradise! Everything! The mountains, the plants, the trees, the clear blue water, the reef…..over water and under water! And with that, Leah, Bret & I did portraits ALL OVER Kauai, so I’m super super thrilled to give them truly amazing pics to choose from!

The suspense to show these off is already killing me, haha! But….I have agreed with the couple to keep these pics TOP SECRET until their big celebration party in Tennessee at the end of August.

So, until then I will keep YOU in suspense! However, here’s one image to tide over (or add to?) your curiosity!

Christy and Michael’s Wedding at the Charleston Maritime Center

The wind took the edge off this late July outdoor wedding! Located right on Charleston Harbor, the Charleston Maritime Center has phenomenal views of the bridge and the grand piers. Christy and Mike had more fun than I’ve seen in a long time. We experiemented with some new photography techniques, including breaking in our new Radio Poppers (a remote flash tool) and bracketing the camera to the tent top during the ceremony (best 1st kiss shot ever!)

Gailliard Auditorium Performance

Holly and Mike were up for anything for their engagement shoot walk down Calhoun St. We found some great spots over by Gailliard Auditorium.

The Dog Days of Summer, family and pet portrait event at Waterfront Park in Charleston

Oh BOY we have been having crazy amounts of fun during our “Dog Days of Summer” portrait series! (See collage below!)

Since last weekend ended up being booked solid so quickly…’re in luck! We have added one extra day! 🙂 We have added Saturday, July 17th as our “Lazy Dog Day” for all you ‘lazy dogs’ out there that wanted a session but didn’t book in time! (Hehe. You know we love ya!)

This is the last day, and there are only a few slots left! We have openings from 1pm until 6pm. This is your last chance to get a $40 session with 40% off all prints & enlargements! To book your session, call us at (843) 767-6888.

The “Dog Days of Summer” are here! July 8-11th, 2010

The “Dog Days of Summer” are here!  Talk about FUN!  We personally know how difficult it is to get a really good pic of those furry family members, so let us give it a try! We think you will fall in love with the results. 🙂

We are now booking $40 sessions (no that’s not a typeo!) for July 8-11th…..and 40% off our price list for prints until the end of July.

The goal of this summer series is to not only get fabulous photos of your dog, but to also celebrate that special relationship you have with them! Does your dog have a favorite toy? Bring it!

You know you want in on the fun! Call the studio to schedule your session asap! We can’t wait to meet your furry loved ones!
