Tybee engagement photography involving surprise proposals isn’t something as common as you might think. In my five years as a resident I’ve only had the privilege of photographing three of them. Like the recent days that brought us all outside to soak in the warm air of Spring on its way, Brittney and Matt were deeply appreciated visitors to Tybee Island.

I have to say that Brittney’s reaction, her lack of noticing me for what seemed like several minutes, and her inability to hide her very fresh emotions really made this a pleasure to photograph. Matt was also the perfect mirror for Brittney’s excitement and enthusiasm. I think, like me, he was happy to see everything went as planned and this was their moment to celebrate. Thank you both for the great honor of allowing me to bear witness to such a big day in your lives.

Tybee Island visitors and residents have given me four beautiful years of experiences now. Thank you all, especially my clients, for making such a lifestyle possible and more importantly for trusting me with documenting your lives. At the end of every day, whether with my sand in my shoes or walking home amidst live oaks draped with backlit Spanish moss, I am grateful to have such beautiful places like Tybee Island and Savannah to call my home as well as my office. Just a selection of those moments throughout 2014 are posted below.

I am full of energy at just the thought of what 2015 holds. I’m excited to meet many new clients and to have the always humbling honor of seeing some clients visit the area once again. There are many things to consider when planning your wedding, family vacation or engagement like locations, best light and tides, so please feel free to reach me if you have any questions. That’s why I’m here and I’m greatly looking forward to meeting and working with you all.

This past Spring I had the honor of exhibiting my nature photography of Fort Pulaski National Monument, or rather all of Cockspur Island. The images were made mostly around sunrise or the last few hours before as well as during sunset between April and June of 2013. I visited almost everyday sometimes twice a day chasing light, getting to know the grazing habits of the deer, the more hidden coyote and getting to know the many looks of the island itself.

Visiting everyday allowed me the opportunity to see so many variations of tides, weather and unique circumstances, like the supermoon at dawn as seen in the second image. I continue to visit, and of course, the island continues to change. Many of these photos could not be made again in part or whole. It gives me a great respect for this beautiful place I call home.

Prints framed and unframed are available with a portion of all sales go to Fort Pulaski National Monument.
