Palmetto Bluff – Bluffton, SC

Apparently the South Carolina coast is amazing in early April, well at least that’s what we experienced.  Nicole and Zachery’s wedding took place at their family’s private residence in the massive 20,000 acres of the beautiful coastal community known as Palmetto Bluff.

The bluff is a giant playground for photographers and filmmakers alike.  The few locations we had time to travel to did not disappoint.  Nicole was a veteran of the bluff and showed us one of her favorite locations which was the perfect tunnel of palms with a sandy road running straight through it.  I could have spent hours there! (As you can see, it ended up as our cover shot)

We were able to shoot at 5 different locations.  The ceremony took place at waterside chapel, which as the name suggests is right on the water.  It was a quaint little chapel with a lot of character and if you decide to research it you will find out why.

The guys got ready at a friend’s guest house and my assistant had some fun with his new mavic drone getting some aerial shots of them riding bikes through the dense wood.  I was shooting over at the parents of the bride’s house for her getting ready coverage.  The house was beautiful with incredible light and enough room to maneuver around and get some amazing prep footage.  The reception also took place there where they set up a tent that was nestled in the coastal forest of their backyard.  I was also able to capture some really great aerial footage of the bluff with my phantom 4 pro.  It’s amazing how beautiful it is there from 400 feet in the air!

Both the ceremony and reception were flawless.  The friends and family were very welcoming.  The people we worked along side with were awesome.  It was a big success and a memorable experience.  Nicole and Zachery are an amazing couple devoted to their faith and have such an incredibly deep love for each other.  We were thrilled to have been a part of their day and work on such a fantastic film.
