Happy 4th of July!

posted in: Beach | 7

Too bad I missed wishing you guys a happy 4th of July earlier today. Amanda and I spent the day at home chilling out on our first free Saturday in months. (At least it seems that way!)

For our fireworks viewing pleasure we headed to the beautiful Jekyll Island. (love that place!) Between the four local areas where fireworks are shot off (legally) – Jekyll is the best. It has a beach regardless of the tide and has more families.

Before leaving I rounded up a few tips from PhotoJojo on shooting fireworks so I wouldn’t go out there relying on trial and error. It helped so much considering I hadn’t shot fireworks photos before.

Here’s what we left with… including an awesome (if I do say so myself) shot of Amanda and I.

Look What I Found on Facebook

Just now before signing off for the night I decided to check Facebook only to find a status that made me call for Amanda to come see. The bride whose wedding we shot on May 8th made this her status earlier today:

Wow. We’re stunned to see this. Likewise, Christina and Dan were the perfect couple. Easy-going, fun, loved details. It really showed everywhere from the choice of a destination wedding on Jekyll Island to the custom-made ties that Christina designed. They were a joy to work with.

While we’re talking about Facebook statuses, here’s mine from the drive home (with a stop by Waffle House) after their wedding.

Yeah I invented a new word it was so awesome! We were excited about that night.

Now, if only the whole world knew were the best wedding photographers in the world… :)

Katheryn’s Senior Portraits on Jekyll Island

Perfect weather set the stage for an incredibly fun photo shoot with Katheryn on Jekyll Island last weekend. For her senior portraits she chose Jekyll Island which is such a beautiful place to shoot any time of the year but especially now that the flowers are blooming all over the place.

We started on the beach with a few of her best friends. We didn’t have to remind them to smile one time – they were having so much fun together. Afterwards we headed to the Jekyll Island Club Hotel to take advantage of the beautiful grounds then headed back to the beach for some twilight shots.

If you’re interested in senior portraits for the 2009-2010 school year, we’d love the opportunity to work with your high school senior. Please contact us for more info.

Lauren’s Senior Shoot on Jekyll Island

Lauren and her mom joined us last Sunday on Jekyll Island, GA for her senior portrait session. We knew it was going to be an interesting session due to the cloudless sky and 15mph winds. But we prevailed and I think we got some beautiful images to send to her.

If you’re familiar with Jekyll Island you’ll recognize many of our locations. First we started in the Historic District which has both natural and manmade amazing settings. We then headed to Driftwood Beach that is, well, a beach with a ton of driftwood. We finished up in the Historic District to take advantage of the colorful sunset.
