Today I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Keitt! We started at The Hampton Inn and Suites Columbia Killian Road Location and ended at Rehoboth Baptist Church. This awesome couple has been fun from start to finish. We had the pleasure of capturing their engagement session, which you can see HERE. We also was able to capture the bridal session for Alesha, which you can see HERE. Throughout the process of this wedding, covid tried to take over. At one point we were going to cancel and reschedule, then we kept the date, then kept the date for the ceremony and pushed the reception back to 2021. No matter what, we stayed true and remain by this awesome couple because we wanted to see it all through to completion for them. We are happy to call you both friends and want to thank you for sharing your day with my wife and I. We had tons of fun and enjoyed every minute.

Arkeisha and Nathan - Engagement Session - Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center - Columbia SC https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2020/2/arkeisha-and-nathan-engagement-session-columbia-metropolitan-convention-center Hey everyone! If this is your first time visiting, I want say welcome! If you are a long time visiter, welcome back!

Today's post is about our amazing new couple Arkeisha and Nathan! We had the honor and pleasure of capturing their engagement session! We were able to meet downtown Columbia SC during the busy busy weekend of a USC Basketball game (Go Gamecocks!), so you know how that traffic was. This was a late evening shoot. We were super excited and ready to have some fun! By using some practical perspectives and angels, we were able to capture some amazing photos, while tons of people walked around. As usual, I cracked some corny jokes and was able to get a smile out of them both, or maybe they are just super cool, either way I am happy! I am proud to have this couple as our latest bride and groom and can't wait until their wedding day! Thank you both for allowing us to be a part of your engagement and your upcoming wedding!

Cusetta and Jamarcus - Intimate Wedding - Pine Knoll Farms - Appling GA https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2020/2/Cusetta-and-Jamarcus-Pine-Knoll-Farms-Appling-GA Welcome back to another blog post! We really do appreciate you taking the time to visit!

On February 6th 2020, My wife and I had the opportunity to capture the beautiful ceremony of Cusetta and Jamarcus in Appling, GA at Pine Knoll Farms. We were initially worried about the weather, with multiple flood warnings across South Carolina and Georgia. At one point the bride contacted me asking "Do you need to cancel, if so we understand." I said, "No, let's capture the wedding. If you plan on moving forward with the wedding, I plan on being there." My wife and I drove to Appling, GA, in the pouring rain and once we arrived, we realized how beautiful the venue was. The staff was amazing and very accommodating, even putting up the plastic tent covers to keep out the rain! Once we unpacked our stuff, we took a few test photos and detail shots while we waiting for the ceremony to begin. 

Since this was a last minute Thursday booking for us, it was the first time we had a chance to meet the bride and groom and I must say they both looked outstanding. Without much knowledge of what was needed, we made sure to do what we normally do and capture the moment. Below is a peak at a fraction of the images we captured during their wedding day. We are honored to have been a part of your intimate wedding. Though we were only there for 1 hour, we were happy to have met you and hope to capture more life events for you both! No wedding is too big and no wedding is too small. We believe that every couple deserves gorgeous images, that will last many lifetimes for generations to come.

Melinda and Antonio - Inn at USC Wyndham - Columbia SC {Wedding} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2017/3/melinda-and-antonio---inn-at-usc-wyndham---columbia-sc-wedding Greetings everyone!

 

To some people 3/4/17 will mean something and to others it will mean nothing. For my team, it is the day I had the opportunity to shoot an amazing couple. For the couple, it is the day they was able to become one before God! So you see, 3/4/17 was awesome none-the-less!

 

On this day we were able to work with Melinda and Antonio on capturing an awesome wedding. With these two you can see the love, the passion and the fire they have for one another. It is almost like that high school love where they giggle at the mention of the others name. We find that to be beautiful because it is hard to find now days.

 

It all started off at Inn at USC Wyndham Garden in Columbia SC. We arrived ready and willing to take images. We met up with our team, went over the game plan and broke like a football team after drumming up the ultimate play. We started off capturing amazing detail images (which the bride put together)! You can check out more of her work here at Chain of Events. We later captured gorgeous images of the bride getting ready, followed by the groom getting ready! Next we documented them opening their gifts to each other and the espressions where priceless! You can see they both enjoyed their gifts very much!

 

Once it was time for the ceremony, we were able to coordinate where we would be to get the best coverage. You can see that Antonio was anxious to see his bride and Melinda was excited to see her groom! The two exchanged what I must say are some of the best personal vows I have ever heard. We captured the raw emotion, the tears of joy and the love shared amongst these two as they said their "I Do's".

 

Fast forward to the reception or should I say the big party! I am talking about people on the dance floor "turning up" as they say! It was a blast as we made our way around the floor snapping photos! We also had a chance to shoot a few pictures of the heart felt speaches that were made along with the beautiful cake cutting of an awesome cake (made by the groom)!

 

We ended the night with a night shot in front of the Inn that I had been planning for some time. As we said our goodbyes for the evening, I know I have made two friends.

 

I want to thank Melinda and Antonio for allowing us to document their wedding!

 

I want to thanke Vic Weaver of V Photography for his assistance on the wedding day as well as Quentin Curry of Eye Dew Videos. Teamwork means everything to us in capturing your wedding.

 

If you would like images like this on your wedding, please contact us at www.idolimageweddings.com/contact-us

 

Until then, please enjoy some of our favorite images from the wedding day!

Melinda - Inn at USC Wyndham Garden - Columbia SC {Bridal Session} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2017/3/melinda---inn-at-usc-wyndham-garden---columbia-sc-bridal-session Hey everyone, welcome back to the blog! Today we are showcasing an amazing bride Melinda ROBERSON! That is right, she is now the Mrs! We had a lovely time at the bridal session capturing these images. Myself, Melinda and her daughter Angelette (who helped out tremendously) had a blast joking and laughing, talking about the wedding day and just enjoying time. Melinda was easy to work with and when I said lets make something happen, she was ready for it!

The bridal session took place at the Inn at USC Wyndham Garden in Columbia SC. We found it to be fitting since the wedding was going to be there as well. We took a few indoor shots but we also managed to sneak outside for a few shots in the front of the inn! We did run into minor, MINOR issues with the federal building across the street! We just didn't know that was federal property and tried to go take a photo over there. Needless to say we were shut down before we even set foot on the grounds! None the less the photos turned out gorgeous and we had a great time. That is what matters the most.

The wedding day was amazing on 3/4/17 so stay tuned for the wedding blog! Until then, please enjoy some of our favorite bridal images from the awesome Melinda Roberson!

Lillian and Quentin - Downtown Vista - Columbia SC {Engagement Session} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2017/2/lillian-and-quentin---downtown-vista---columbia-sc-engagement-session Greetings everyone! Hope you all had an amazing weekend, I know we did! Another engagement session in the books!

We had the opportunity to photograph the amazing Lillian and Quentin for their engagement session in downtown Columbia SC. I must admit, we were kind of worried thinking that it wouldn't get done but then....it happened! We shot in the rain! Well it wasn't raining too hard but enough to get you soaked if you stayed in it too long! With that being said, we were almost in and out but with the short amount of time we were able to shoot, we captured some amazing and fun images! 

You can tell that Lillian and Quentin love each over very much. They had so much chemistry and just worked well together to get these shots. Since it was raining, I had a chance to work with some natural light. It isn't often I get a chance to shoot with natural light so I was eager to utilize natures softbox to get some cool shots! Since they are ballers, they wanted to get a basketball into the mix as well. I think the photos turned out very well but you check them out for yourself!

We are so excited about their wedding on 8/5/17 and can't wait to document the big day! If you would like photos like this feel free to contact us at www.idolimageweddings.com/contact-us

Until then, please enjoy some of our favorite photos!

Kristyn and Heath - Sesquicentennial State Park - Columbia SC - {Styled Shoot} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2017/1/kristyn-and-heath---sesquicentennial-state-park---columbia-sc---styled-shoot Greetings,

A while ago we were in the process of planning an amazing shoot! Something a little different than the normal. We wanted to decorate a set with a date night theme outdoors! We reached out to a few people who could do this for us and Shatoyia of Roxie Bella Event Design stepped up and brought the vision to life!

I didn't quite know exactly what I wanted but I knew I wanted a table in the woods! I gave her and her team full control over the decorations and man was I impressed! She pulled out all the stops. I am talking tables, dinner plates, candles, napkins, flowers and yes even chandelier. I was so excited for my couple to arrive to start the shooting process!

As Kristyn and Heath arrived, I can already see love in their eyes, not from the set but for each other. It was at that moment I knew that this shoot was going to be something special. As we talked about what we were going to do, they were eager to get started as well. All I had to say was act natural. I didn't have to tell anyone to smile because they made each other do that seamlessly with their constant cute words and motions.

Here we go, with photo number one things started off with a bang! I am talking lights camera action....we studio lit the entire set! I am sure people on the outer border of the woods were wondering, what was going on with all the flashing lights! We were going for something a little different and this was definitely it. It isn't everyday you see a studio set in the woods! As the session progressed, tons and tons of walkers and runners passed us by. We constantly kept telling them "we apologize" because we did take over their running space. None of them seemed to care though. They were all amazed at what was taking place with a few stopping just to watch before completing their jog. We even had a nice gentlemen lend us his bike as a prop for one of our favorite shots!

I personally would like to thank Shatoyia of Roxie Bella Event Design for making this set possible. We would also like to thank Quentin of Eyedew for coming to capture some behind the scenes footage for us. I want to thank Kristyn and Heath for allowing their love to captured!

Charlesetta and Kini - Riverfront Park and Canal - Columbia SC {Engagement Session} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2017/1/charlesetta-and-kini---riverfront-park-and-canal---columbia-sc-engagement-session Greetings!

Over this past weekend, we had an opportunity to capture the engagement photos of Charlesetta and Kini! It at first seemed as though we would never get a chance to take pictures because our first session was cancelled due to snow and this session was almost cancelled due to rain. We said, you know what, lets try it anyway! You won't believe what happened! The sky opened up and the 90% chance of rain, held off long enough for us to get some amazing photos. I guess it was just meant to be! We still ended up cutting our session short because the drops were coming but the love that these two was able to show the camera was so amazing, we didn't need the extra time anyway!

The session started off at the front of Riverfront Park taking some quick shots slowly working our way to the back. During this time we had a few conversations about the wedding day and basketball, along with a few laughs of course. They did very well in front of the camera, naturals I would say. I can't wait until we capture their wedding on 9/30/2017!

Shalana and Brodrick - USC Horseshoe - Columbia SC {Engagement Session} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2017/1/shalana-and-brodrick---usc-horseshoe---columbia-sc-engagement-session Hi everyone! Happy New Years from Idol Image Weddings! Let us kick off this year with a blog from one of our amazing couples Shalana and Brodrick! We had the pleasure of capturing their fun session at The USC Horseshoe in Columbia SC. We don't get a chance to shoot here often but when we do, we enjoy it a lot. We had a chance to capture two different looks with them. Casual attire during the day followed by some evening attire later that night! It started off a little rough because if you know downtown Columbia, then you know parking is not the greatest! We eventually were able to make magic and document some beautiful smiles showing love they have for each other!

We had so much fun during this shoot and we can't wait until Shalana's bridal session and their wedding! Make sure you follow our blog to keep up with this awesome couple and the good times to come!

Carl and Domonique @ Irmo Town Park {Family Session} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2016/8/carl-and-domonique-irmo-town-park-family-session When we first met Domonique and Carl we instantly fell in love with this amazing couples chemistry! We had an opportunity to capture their engagement/maternity photos last year and was honored to capture these family photos for them at Irmo Town Park as a sequel with the new addition to the family!

Matthew and Mary at Riverfront Park - Columbia SC {The Proposal} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2016/7/matthew-and-mary-the-proposal I know what you must be saying, Idol Image Weddings haven't written a blog in a while. Well folks we were on a nice vacation enjoying the sites, photographing baseball games, taking multiple trips and spending time with friends and family. But don't worry, we have a special blog for you since we are ramping up this wedding season!

As wedding season kicks off with new engagements we were able to witness the amazing proposal between Matthew and Mary. For weeks Matthew and I have been in communication with each other as he planned this amazing moment for his now fiance Mary. We agreed that the best place would be Riverfront Park overlooking the water during the evening! The two started off that day with Mary being pampered. I am talking about getting her nails done, hair done and SHOPPING. Oh and lets not forget date night after the proposal!!! Throughout the day I was in contact with Matthew trying to get the details of what was going on, to make sure I was in position at the RIGHT time. 

Since Mary didn't know who I was, I told him "I will be in the back, pretending to just take photos of the scenery". Sure enough around 7:30 out of the corner of my eye, I see them approaching, both smiling having a great time. By the look in Matthew eyes, you can tell that he was ready and that they both were made for each other! They walk over to the edge of the walk way and overlook the water and the dam. At this time she hadn't noticed me taking photos of their interaction with each other, which I will say was nothing short of breathtaking. He then hands his phone to her, which was playing an amazing poetic piece that he WROTE HIMSELF titled "The Question"! After the poem ended, you can see the joy in his eyes as she hugs him tightly! He proceeds to drop to a knee, pulling out this gorgeous ring, popping "The Question"! Of course I wasn't shocked when she said YES!!! As usual, we had to fight back the tears during this joyous occasion! I am so happy for them both and glad that I was able to be their for them both through this amazing time! 

I want to thank Matthew for allowing me to assist in your special day. I want to thank Mary for being awesome and saying yes to Matthew!!!

Everyone please enjoy some of our favorite images form the proposal! If you want images like this, please request information at www.idolimageweddings.com/contact-us and we will be glad to capture your special event.

Ranarda and David - The Medallion Center - Columbia SC {Wedding} https://www.idolimageproofs.com/blog/2015/10/ranarda-and-david---the-medallion-center---columbia-sc-wedding Welcome back to another wedding day! This time we had a chance to photograph none other than the great Ranarda and David! We had a blast shooting at The Medallion Center as usual. The colors were black, white and red and believe me that red popped! They had a great ceremony and reception with plenty of fun people.

The day started with Ranarda getting ready at Hampton Inn and Suites next door to The Medallion Center. She had this beautiful dress and sparkling shoes. Her bridesmaids were certainly helping out big time which is a great sign.

The day ran over into The Medallion Center with the ceremony being in Salon B and the reception following immediately after in Salon A. The coordinator Janet kept things on track nicely which I really appreciate!

I remember a nice group of ladies trying to convince me to chill, eat my food and enjoy myself but as you know we have to get it down and get back to work. Oh yeah back to the food....ummmm AMAZING! The bar tenders looked like they were on point to because the line to the bar stayed extra long. I eventually went over there to take a bunch of pictures just because!

DJ D-Rex kept things going with the music. Everyone was on the floor dancing having a good time, which always makes for some awesome photos. He even had his little girl shadow me for photos. She will be a great photographer before you know it!

Special shout out to Pastor Johnson, Rameka Reed and Tenile Watson for all of there help! Also shout out to all the vendors that assisted with making this day great for the couple!

I want to thank you for taking the time to view these photos and as always we hope you enjoy! To book Idol Image Weddings for your photography services please contact us here!

I have photographed products before being a wedding photographer but it was always things like wedding rings, watches, flowers, shoes and etc. I even have experience photographing food from weddings but nothing to this extent.

It all started at 2631 Devine St, Columbia SC at Burger Tavern 77. I went in with a few ideas from a google search of "food photography". That gave me a few ideas on angles however lighting was still absent. I figured I would start off shooting it like a wedding ring just not as close and what do you know, it actually worked! I continued to grab shots at different angles, adjusting my lighting as needed. Each shot I was trying to capture the essence of the burger. Each person that watched me shoot, you could see in their eyes they wanted to eat it! That is what I was going for with each photo!

Eventually I conquered my product photography mission and finished off the session with a burger of my own. I like to call "The Photographer"! That is right, Burger Tavern 77 lets you create and name your own burgers! Do you want to know what "The Photographer" consist of? 1 super huge JUICY medium well patty, smoked pimento cheese, pepper jack cheese, pecan bacon, medium fried egg, lettuce, tomato, mayo, ketchup and dill pickle on the side! Oh and don't forget the union rings! Let me tell you that I had trouble eating it, not because it was bad but because it was HUGE! I had to start off slow and work my way through it :). All in all my experience was amazing. The photo shoot was awesome, the food was amazing and the staff did an outstanding job.

If you are looking for a photographer for products, portraits or weddings, feel free to contact me HERE. If you are looking for a burger that is far superior then don't hesitate to check out Burger Tavern 77. Until then please enjoy a few of the shots taken. Comment, Share and Subscribe.
