“First Look” Wedding Photos

There is a trend in Wedding Photography called the “First Look” where the Bride and Groom set aside time for the Photographer to catch their first glimpse of each other before the ceremony. It is a special time that is unrushed and emotional for the couple to share without family and guests being involved. We had the opportunity to be a part of a”First Look” with the “Haymore Twins” and would like to share this special part of the wedding with our readers.

First we Photographed Heather and Sean:



















Next we Photographed Kristen and Evan:





















Next we Photographed the Father’s “First Look”. This was a decision made “spur of the moment” as we were having such a wonderful shoot!











We kept going! The girls decided that we would shoot a “First Look” with their brother:

Big Fat Greek Wedding – Lean Style

Eric and Olga were wed at the Greek Orthodox Church in Myrtle Beach, but had some unorthodox moments. Olga’s engagement ring was a toe ring, Eric picked out Olga’s wedding dress, and Eric walked Olga down the aisle (instead of her dad who had passed on).  Their wedding was such a joy to capture!

Diving into Minds – High School Seniors

The class of 2013 represents the dawning of “Generation Z”.  They are unaware of what life would be like with little to no technology entertaining their every moment.  With such cultivated lives comes great, yet complex personalities.

We have had the pleasure of photographing some of these unique seniors lately.  Enjoy!




Has someone ever told you, “You are very photogenic.  The camera loves you!”

A term once used to describe someone has now become a competitive division in the pageant world.



Photogenic /ˌfōtəˈjenik/  (noun) a headshot or portrait used to compete in beauty pageants



How are these photos judged?

Photographers must have a keen eye for composition and know what the judges are looking for when taking a photogenic.

#1 You are only able to submit ONE photogenic in competition (at the MOST two if they permit it)

#2 The eyes must be composed above the 50% mark of the image.

#3 THE BABY MUST BE HAPPY AND CHEERFUL.  Judges want to see a baby that is full of life.  The solemn, pouty look is ok to be submitted in the “portfolio division”, but NOT in the photogenic category.

#4 Judges want to see a colorful images.




Cricket, the first little beauty queen shown below is currently winning, not only in her division, but also winning “Grand Supreme”.  In Layman’s terms that means Cricket is winning photogenic in her age group, winning overall in her age group, and winning the overall competition (meaning she is beating girls up to age 18). 

Keep up the good work Cricket!
