Last Friday, I joined other bloggers around the globe in supporting For Japan With Love. The women who came up with the idea set a goal to raise $5,000 in Shelterbox donations. Incredibly, as of this writing, a whopping $58,726 has been raised to provide supplies and shelter to earthquake and tsunami victims. You may still donate if you haven’t done so yet.
Since last week, we’ve experienced a Supermoon, and trees and flowers around Charleston have exploded in their springlike glory. Today’s Faceless Friday post is all about enjoying sandal season. What a lovely spot to chill with a favorite sibling! Happy weekend to you.

Over the weekend, I was nursing some flu-like symptoms with quality couch time watching a Creative Live photo workshop. (Bambi Cantrell shared so much knowledge!) The last segment of her posing workshop included a model wearing a little body paint, which reminded me I hadn’t yet blogged about this fun February fete at the Gibbes Museum.
I had so much fun documenting this Society 1858 party for the Gibbes Museum! A dozen lovely models were paired with as many local artists who interpreted works from a current exhibit onto these moving canvases for a fantastic runway show in the museum’s largest gallery. Hundreds of partygoers applauded those who braved the catwalk while Charleston’s favorite glamazon and brainchild of Charleston Fashion Week, Ayoka Lucas, emceed the show. Later, guests enjoyed tasty cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by Summerville’s five-star gem, The Woodlands.

As a Charleston wedding photographer, I have the opportunity to capture all kinds of wedded bliss. My photography packages include full-resolution files on a DVD, enabling the couple to decorate their home with some favorite images. Many brides aspire to whipping up a photo book using the images, but the reality of newlywed bliss often puts DIY projects on the back burner as the couple returns from honeymooning to write thank-yous and get back to work.
I recommend every couple purchase a custom album of archival quality that you can enjoy for decades. The images in this flushmount album are printed on photo paper, so the colors and resolution are just as they should be. The images are mounted onto thin black acid-free cardstock and then bound in a design that enables the pages to lay flat (nothing disappears into the black hole of a gutter, like a magazine). Cover options include various linens, leathers and pleathers, with or without a cover window. The book has an impressive heft, a sign that it was carefully constructed to last you a lifetime.

This adorable couple is counting the weeks until their DeBordieu wedding. And so am I! During their engagement session (check it out here), we ambled by the clubhouse where they will wed and along the pristine beach before hopping over to the Georgetown Marina. It just so happens Liz’s dad has a gorgeous fishing boat named “Tie the Knot,” so it was the perfect spot for taking in the day’s last glow.
