So these past couple of weeks have been intense with many activities going on around the campus. I have taken so many pictures just in the last two weeks that I am sure my fingers wish my heart didn’t love doing it! haha! I am going to try to photo-document some highlights.

Volleyball wins three big games in the Buc Dome, had a tough Senior Weekend and went to semi-finals in the BSC Championship!

Women’s Basketball kicks off in the BUC dome…

Football comes to an end…

Spending some time with friends who I won’t be hanging out with much in the next 6 months or so…

Miss CSU 2010, Amy Stender…was fun!

I have been working on some senior gifts for the Volleyball team. They have Senior Weekend this coming week where they will take on High Point and Liberty. As we battle it out for a good seed in the BSC Tournament. We have to acknowledge two women of God who have been huge assets to the CSU Volleyball Team. As I have been learning and growing together with this team I have gotten attached to all of them.

If I had to say something about each one of the seniors I would say:

Nichole Diller – Talk about someone who has more compassion and tenderness in their heart for people! There is just something contagious in her smile. She might be super tall (compared to me!) but her heart is much wider than that! She loves God and has matured over the years in her faith. Its like the Bible says… to have faith the size of a mustard seed is all it takes to MOVE MOUNTAINS! Not only is she a light on the team, but she is a whiz in the classroom. I know she will go far in life from her knowledge, compassion, and faith! ¬†Nichole – Trust in the Lord ALWAYS and lean not on your own understanding but acknowledge Him! (Prov. 3:5-6)

Sam Sasan – The first thought that comes to my mind is quiet and meek. Yet this year I have heard more out of Sammie’s mouth than ever! I am thankful that she has been someone that has been consistent, faithful and silent leader. Her actions on the court have lead to her trust off of the court. I believe that she will be an invisible asset throughout her life, but I pray that she does not become discouraged by not always getting the spotlight acknowledgement. I know she is going to be a great wife and mother. I pray that she will always seek wise counsel and will serve the Lord, our God, with all her heart, soul, mind and strength.


I am so proud of you ladies! :)

In light of working on my photography website right now I am going to post the top ten engagement photos that are going up on the site. They are only a few of hundreds of photographs to choose from. Mind you all of these are people I have been friends with during my time at CSU. Enjoy…and don’t forget to check out

This weekend I took a trip home to see family and to shoot pictures for a family friend who I have been friends with since she was born. Times like these make it even more special that I get to be so involved one of the most important days of her life. She is probably the most laid back person I have ever met and was completely displayed in this ceremony. It was held at a Greek Orthodox church in Florence which was gorgeous, and a new experience for many who attended this service. Here are just a few of the 800 pictures I snapped that day.

This weekend the CSU BUCS went to Gainesville, Florida to the SWAMP to play the University of Florida Gators. I traveled down to Florida with Savvy, Matt and Clint. It was a long trip to drive down and back in one day. We arrived back to Charleston at 4:30 a.m. Some fun times:

  • we enjoyed some boiled peanuts on the way down
  • motel 6 with just the 4 of us
  • Savannah slept the WHOLE way back!
  • “Now how does it work that they called us up to play us and pay us $450,000 to beat us?” – Clint to Tam; Pause……”Or did they email us!” – Clint; “hahahhahahhahahhhaha” – Matt
  • frat house road crossers xing
  • Matt singing Hey, YOU There and I’m on a Boat!
  • being welcomed by some people with some explicit language.
  • Worship service in the car at 3 a.m.
  • hitting curbs in the middle of University of Florida’s campus
  • “Are they saying Sigfreid?” – Clint to Matt about the lyrics to Sweet Dreams (Beyonce)
  • Where’s Waldo? — 5 miles ahead!

Below are some of the pictures from the weekend:

I did a recent shoot for Baxley. She is an outstanding young woman who loves the Lord and has a good head on her shoulders. We went to Folly Beach and then to the Marina by California Dreaming. Here a couple of my favorites from the shoot. Good Luck to Baxley as she finishes this year at Stratford HS.






Here are some of the favorite picks from the Engagement session this past weekend with Justin and Kait. They are always fun to share these milestone memories with. Let me know what you think…
