Pawleys Island Escape | iPhoneography

I enjoy visiting new places, and I like taking photos to ingrain places and feelings into to my feeble memory for the long haul. I love flipping through travel magazines, skimming blogs and dreaming of a shooting a wedding somewhere far away, like Bora Bora or Banff, South Africa or the San Juan Islands, but the reality is we stay pretty close to home base around here. I don’t really mind it — most days I am filled with gratitude because I live in near the sea in such a mild, colorful, relaxed place. Still, it’s nice to take in a change of scenery — even if that’s just up the quiet stretch of Highway 17.

Last year, I photographed an intimate wedding at the Pelican Inn on Pawleys Island, and we packed the family up to come along and enjoy the beach. This year, when I booked a September wedding at nearby DeBordieu, we decided to do the same and make a weekend out of it – we even had some friends come up and spend Friday and part of Saturday with us before I started shooting at 4pm. Here’s to combining work and play more often!
