Christy and Dewayne chose to have a beach wedding at the Beach House, Hilton Head Island. Boy, am I so glad they did! She was stunning in her white gown, her blue-green flowers (arranged by her!), and beautiful veil and headpiece. Dewayne looked very handsome in his beige suit and pastel aqua-blue tie. Perfect colors for a sunset beach wedding! Christy’s daughter was the Maid of Honor, in a gorgeous blue dress. I just LOVE blue on the beach!! Christy’s sweet sons gave her away, and Dewayne’s brother was his Best Man. They had their sweet ceremony on the beach, and had their reception under a huge, beautiful tent at the Beach House. We were blessed with the most amazing sunset and peachy-pink sky- which is what my photography dreams are made of.
When I shoot at the beach, skin tones are most important to me. I will have you backlit until the sun goes behind the trees. Then I turn you around and have you face the beautiful light, which results in perfect, creamy skin. The sky opposite the sun is so beautiful, I actually prefer that more than the sunset itself (but I love a good silhouette!).
One of the neatest things about this wedding was that a lot of the guests, and the groom himself, are Jamaican! I fell in love with Jamaica just a few months prior, when my hubby and I celebrated out 20 year anniversary at Sunset at the Palms in Negril. How about this for a small world– the groom and family is from Negril and he was a chef at that very resort! So cool!! Can’t wait to go back to that country that made my heart so happy! This fun reception in a nutshell– Jamaican food, dancing, love and laughter, the accent all around me– I thoroughly enjoyed being submerged in the Jamaican culture again.
Congratulations again to Christy and Dewayne— thank you for choosing me, and I wish you alllll the best things life has to offer!! Hugs!
The beach is my favorite– though I do love some mossy oak trees— but the beach is where my style really shines. Light, airy, creamy, sunshine-y… if you are looking for a photographer for your Hilton Head beach wedding– I’m your girl!
