We hope that as you browse around, you’re able to get to know our creative us a little better, and consider us as your Myrtle Beach Photographer!
Most people would say that we’re a comfortable mix of casual tradition & good ole’ fashioned whimsical fun! We like to let our hair down, wiggle our toes in the sand, and chill out with some relaxing music and a nice aged bottle of something yummy!
After all, that’s what living in South Carolina is all about, right?
Myrtle Beach has so many wonderful things to offer, and with each passing year we’ve enjoyed establishing this beautiful city as our home. Originally we met in Ukraine, and after a beautiful courtship, we were married there in June of 2011. Our wedding was definitely an extraordinary experience. If you’ve ever planned a “destination wedding” then you probably know exactly what we’re talking about. Unfortunately, Ukraine is not the best versed in customer service to say the least. There were times when we thought about eloping to run away from it all. But alas, we decided to do the right thing for our families’ sake, and it also taught us a huge lesson in patience. We also gained a vast appreciation for America’s civility. What a refreshing change.
In January of 2013 we were blessed with the birth of our wonderful son! He has definitely turned our world inside out, and has filled our lives with many new levels of excitement. It’s a shame he didn’t get here a month earlier, we could have at least added him to the tax write-off list! (JUST KIDDING!) In all seriousness, he has become our number one pride and joy! It’s funny though how our parents seem to have forgotten about us. When they come to visit, they only seem to ask us “Where’s the baby?” Nonetheless, becoming a parent has been very exciting. It’s like watching your heart walk around in front of you. Seeing your little one learn everything for the first time and thinking about how smart he is gives us many proud Mommy & Daddy moments. When we’re not exploring new activities with our little man we love entertaining guests, enjoying some fine dining, and of course the beach. Believe it or not, all of the beautiful sunshine of South Carolina actually has us missing the SNOW! Yes we know . . . we’re a little crazy!
If you’d like to learn more about how AWESOME we are, stop by the studio, give us a call, or schedule a session today.
