And sometimes love approaches us in ways that are unimaginable. Unexpectedly, and by complete surprise.

Ladies and gentlemen meet Da'Vita and Wesley. I had the honor of working with them for their engagement session, and to witness the love they have for each other was simply amazing.  I've never met a couple that completed each other's sentences. I mean seriously, they said things at the same time. LOL.  They were so in synch until I was shocked.

The great thing about their story is that they met at Coastal Carolina University. One day just hanging out with friends, I'm sure they caught each other's eyes and it was like fireworks. Since then their relationship has blossomed into a story of pure love.

It’s amazing how one simple decision (attending college) can develop into a story of not just receiving a college degree, but also meeting the man or woman of your dreams.

Being able to share the moment with them made me feel thrilled and overjoyed. While witnessing them smile, laugh, and engage with each other was a simple reminder of how love still exists.

I can't wait to photograph their wedding in September. I'm sure the day will be filled with joy, delight, and cheerfulness.

May this engagement session remind us all that love can be found ANYWHERE by making a simple decision to attend college because you may just meet the man or woman of your dreams.

Five Tips for Choosing the Perfect Vendor https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2016/7/five-tips-for-choosing-the-perfect-vendor

Selecting your vendors for your wedding day isn't easy, nor is the process of selecting your closest friends to be a part of your special day. I mean who wants to cross off their friend from the seventh grade that helped you in one of your most embarrassing moments in school. Or that college roommate that's been extremely helpful with giving you advice when you needed it the most.  Man, I know that both processes can be both stressful, overwhelming and mind-boggling.

Narrowing your list of vendors can be the same way. Hectic, and almost like a rat race. I mean REALLY. Just as selecting from a pool of friends, so is selecting from vendors. Where people are extremely talented in their craft in a world where it seems like "EVERYONE'S DOING IT".  

Although I can't tell you who to select to be your bridesmaid or maid of honor, what I can tell you is HOW TO select your vendor for your special day.

1. Were you ever in a wedding before? Ask the Bride who she selected to be a vendor at her wedding, and if you REALLY liked and connected with the vendor she selected then there you have it.

2.  Look through social media to see who people are RAVING about. YES! Nowadays gossip is no longer a phone call away, it's a click away. 

3. Ask your closest relative or friends if there are any suggestions. I'm sure they know of someone in the area who can accommodate your needs.

4. Decide if you are connected to that vendor. Most of the time brides select vendors that have similar interest, and personalities. Connecting with your vendor will not only make your day easier, but you will be able to finish planning your wedding with ease. 

5. Lastly, select someone you trust, and work that you admire. Technology is increasing, and so is the pool of vendors. Finding someone you trust is worthwhile. Just like selecting that Bridesmaid.

-Happy Planning!

TriSha's Maternity Session https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2016/7/trishas-maternity-session Working with TriSha has been one of the most rewarding experiences as a photographer. A few months back I remember scrolling through my Facebook timeline,/ and saw that TriSha lost both of her parents within a year time. Immediately my heart dropped thinking, “I can’t imagine the feeling of losing someone so close to you all in a year time”. Without hesitation, I left a comment saying how she was in my thoughts and prayers, and to this day she still is.

A few weeks later, I received a call from one of her closest friends saying how they would love to schedule a photo shoot with me. I then said, “YES!” With excitement and joy, I immediately thought of ways I could bring comfort and joy from behind the camera lens, and most of all tell her story.  

As I prepared for the session one of the first things I done was set my intentions for the shoot. I wanted to make sure I was in the right mindset to create a beautiful, blissful, and memorable experience for everyone.  

As I got my camera, and prepared for the shoot I gave Thanks to God for allowing me to tell someone’s story in a way that will touch the lives, and hearts of others.

During the session, she and I were able to converse about how her parents passed away, and how she was coping with things, which in any case is hard, and challenging.  She talked about how her Mom’s name was Angel, and how she wanted to name her daughter Angel in memory of her Mother.

From her amazing story, which was full of hope and love, I was inspired to give her comfort and joy. Even if it was just for an hour.

That hour was one of the best experiences of my life. TriSha, her friends and I were able to smile, laugh, and find humor in anyway possible.

I was able to pose her in a way to complimented her beauty, and celebrate the life that was growing inside of her. To me I was able to help heal her wounds from the other side of the lens.

With every photo that I took, I gave Thanks. I wanted to give every part of me to make her feel confident, beautiful, and most of all loved.

We ALL have experienced at some point hurt, pain, and disappointments in life. Sometimes our healing comes with time, or with an elegant smile (even if it’s just for a moment). With this session, I wanted to create a sense of comfort to her. Letting each photo play as a constant reminder that regardless if there is pain, one still holds a gentle SMILE. To be a reminder of how God’s Angels are shining down, looking on her as a beacon of light, and a ray of sunshine. 

Of all the times I’ve taken photos, this one was special…

May your loved one’s continue to smile down on you as you give birth to your daughter, Angel.


With Love,

Shante & Lashone https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2016/4/shante-lashone Mr. & Mrs. Coffield had a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Marina Inn Grand Dunes in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. In the presence of close friends and family, both Shante and Shone were able to exchange vows with a waterfront view wedding in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. As Shante walked down the aisle in a beautiful champagne gown from Charleston Gown & Boutique, she was elegant in a gown that complimented her curves. With a combination of smiles and an atmosphere full of joy, both were able to gaze into each other's eyes with full happiness and bliss, as they had a romantic wedding on the waterfront at the Marina Inn at Grand Dunes. 

Throughout the day Leslie Menich with Memorable Moments Wedding and Event Planning was able to plan and direct a perfect wedding and timeline with smooth transitions. Not only did she ensure that the day was memorable, but was able to assist both the bride and groom with whatever they needed throughout the day. 

The groom, Shone wore a white and gray tuxedo from JoS A. Banks of Myrtle Beach. Not only was the combination of a gray and white tuxedo the perfect match, but it showed how unique his style of choice and color was. 

During the reception Global Truth Entertainment of Myrtle Beach, SC kept the crowd dancing with a mixture of songs throughout the reception to keep guest energized and well engaged. 

As the reception proceeded, both the bride and groom were ecstatic to cut their cake which was done by Croissants Bakery. The combination of red velvet, vanilla, and buttercream icing not only added flavor, but the color combination made the cake very unique using the pattern of chevron. 

Nearby friends and family were able to enjoy the silver sequin backdrop provided by ShutterBooth. All Attendees were able to take fun photos using props to provide the bride and groom with memorable moments; which will later be presented to both the bride and groom in the form of a scrap book. 

While working closely with Kyle of Heart to Hart Media we were able to work in a timely manner to ensure that the wedding experience was both fun, and exciting for the bride and groom. 

Thanks again to Mr. & Mrs. Coffield for allowing me to be a part of your special day <3 

XOXO, -ARich

Kara & Donell https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/9/kara-donell  

On a perfect summer day, Kara and Donell exchanged their vows at the Marina Inn of Grand Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC. The Temples planned their wedding all the way from Tennessee.   Kara and Donell ensured that their day was perfect by choosing the perfect venue, wedding vendors, and decor. The Temples’ wedding complimented their unique style and personalities.  After so many months of planning Kara and Donell were able to enjoy the night which was filled with fun, laughter, and joy. 

As Kara walked down the aisle to see Donell for the first time on their wedding day, she took his breath away. Donell gazed into her eyes as they exchanged vows. Surrounded by the family at the Marina Inn at Grand Dunes, the couple promised to love, honor, and cherish for the rest of their lives and sealed their devotion with a kiss, which is the beginning of something new. Together. 

I absolutely love the way Kara and Donell love each other. Both Kara and Donell exemplify what it is to have a distinct care and devotion... Together I wish you all a lifetime of happiness and joy! -ARich

Juanita and Reginald https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/8/juanita-and-reginald Juanita and Reginald had a very elegant wedding at Wedgefield Plantation in Georgetown, SC. The couple decided on the colors of pink and gray, and it looked absolutely amazing together. Juanita chose to do all the centerpieces, and decor, and she done a fantastic job using real flowers. While working with both Juanita and Reginald throughout the day, I was able to witness the connection they have for each other. They  both have a great sense of humor, and I was able to connect with them easily. I could tell that this family loves the Lord, and love to sing. Throughout the day, we were serenaded by different members of the family as they sung perfect melodies.

HPH Family Reunion https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/8/hph-family-reunion The HPH Family Reunion was great! They decided to have a picnic style Family Reunion and it was very successful. The event was full of laughter, and joy as the family reunited at The Burgess Center in South Carolina. Each member  came from different areas around the country and were able to fellowship through food, dance, and fun. Seafood was the selection for the meal, and it was absolutely delicious. Fried fish, shrimp, and sweet potato fries was an excellent choice of food for the night. This family was so joyous to work with. As they mingled throughout the event, I was able to witness the joy they had for each other as they conversed throughout the night.  The HPH Family Reunion was great, and I hope they are able to carry on the legacy for other African American families.

Rev. Dr. Eddie Gamble's 30th Anniversary https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/8/rev-dr-eddie-gambles-30th-anniversary Rev. Dr. Eddie Gamble celebrated 30 years of ministry at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in Andrews, SC. I first met the Gamble Family as a little girl singing at different programs that was held for many years, and I must say being able to document programs such as this is an honor. Reverend Dr. Eddie Gamble has been the Pastor for 30 years, and the love and appreciation was evident throughout program. The church family decided on having two nights of fellowship which was a fantastic idea. Friday night was very elegant, and was decorated beautifully by one of the church members using classic colors such as black and white. The program was filled with laughter, love, and humor. It's evident how much Ebenezer church family adores the Pastor, First Lady, and their children. 


On Sunday morning, they ended off the celebration with high praises to God. Being a part of the worship service took me back to days where hand clapping, feet stomping, and glorifying God was authentic. The atmosphere was full of excitement as the church was able give praises to God for allowing them to be blessed with such an awesome Pastor. The Gamble Family presented gifts, and tokens of love and appreciation to a man that deserves recognition for the handwork and dedication that he put towards the ministry. Thank You to the Ebenezer Church Family for allowing me to be a part of such a joyous occasion.

Kara + Donell's Engagement Session https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/8/kara-donells-engagement-session I must say, I truly enjoyed spending the afternoon with Kara and Donell. The first time I met this couple, I knew that they had a very unique chemistry. Photographing this couple has allowed me to see how wonderful the journey of love could be. They connected naturally, and it shows through the photos. Kara and Donell decided to wear navy blue, and yellow, which really complimented the choice of location. The colors they selected gave the couple a very sleek, and sophisticated look. While photographing in the park we were able to do both casual, tradition, and fun poses! I really enjoyed my Sunday afternoon with them!  

Kara and Donell will be joined in marriage on August 22, 2015, and I honestly can't wait to photograph their wedding. I wish Kara and Donell all the joy, and I will see them as they join each other in marriage. 


With Love, -ARich

Tara & Jimmy's Wedding https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/8/tara-jimmys-wedding Tara and Jimmy had a very eloquent wedding at the Myrtle Beach Base Recreational Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Both Tara and Jimmy share a very close relationship. I really enjoyed spending the day with them! Their union was filled with both laughter, and both tears.  From a photographers perspective there union was one of the most intimate moments I've been able to capture. With tears in his eyes, Jimmy was able to witness his bride Tara walk down the aisle gracefully. 

The highlight of the ceremony was when Tara decided to do a surprise dance by  Jennifer Hudson, "I Love You I Do" the dance was full of emotion, excitement, and really FUN! Tara and Jimmy were able to share an intimate moment after the ceremony by having the guest blow bubbles, which was one of the most special moments  from the day. 

From witnessing their union, I was able to see and feel how both Tara and Jimmy love each other genuinely. From the ceremony, and even during the reception, I could tell that the two of them were a match made in heaven. I truly wish this couple a lifetime of happiness and joy as they spend a lifetime together! With Love, -ARich

Russel's Retirement Party https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/7/russels-retirement-party Valdena done an excellent job planning a surprise party for her husband Russel. While planning this party, Valdena informed me to keep the information confidential to ensure that the party would be a great success. Once Russel entered his surprise party, I could tell he was full of emotion, excitement, and was very surprised.

The catering, and decor was done by Everyday Catering. The vases were very elegant, and sophisticated. The colors were gold, and black, and the tables were accented with beautiful dinning items. The team provided superb services to the guest by serving each guest, and ensuring that each attendee were pleased. 

I truly enjoyed spending my night with Russel and his family. While attending Russel's retirement party, I've been able to learn a lot of Russel. His party was full of fun, enthusiasm, laughter, and tears. Russell retired from Santee Cooper after working 35 years. Russel's wife and family had wonderful comments about Russel's work ethic. Russel was described as a man that has worked diligently at Santee Cooper, and also at home. Russell ensured  that he would teach his children good work ethic by providing them with the tools they needed to be successful. Photographing this Retirement Party gave me a chance to see how there are still great men, and Russel is indeed one of them. One thing that I've learned, is that regardless of what life brings, it's important to stick to your vision and dream as Russel did, and because he was and is so determined, he's able to retire. 

One of the highlights of the night was seeing Russel dance. I could tell that he has a lot of spunk, and keeps up with modern day music. Seeing him enjoy himself at his party showed how one can always have fun! I wish Russel well, and I hope he has many more years to enjoy his family, and retirement.

The Davis Family Reunion https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/7/the-davis-family-reunion The Davis Family Reunion


The Davis Family Reunion was full of love, and devotion. The Davis Family decided to have a reunion at the Myrtle Beach Recreational Center in Myrtle Beach, SC. The colors they was used were black, red, and white. The chair covers gave the event a very sleek, and sophisticated look.  From attending the event, I could tell that the family is close knit, and has a strong Faith in God. This family exhibited what it really means to be a family. The elders of the family was able to talk about how important it is for a family that prays together, is a family that stays together.  At the reunion, families came from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Rochester New York, and other states. I really enjoyed spending the night with the family because my staff and I were able to laugh, smile, and most of all, capture the moment! 


One of the key elements to the program was to see how important The Davis Family emphasized education. Three recipients were able to receive monetary funds in effort to continue the family's strong legacy to continue educating the youth. 


The atmosphere was full of families that were smiling and embracing the moment. The highlight of the event was the singing. I could tell that The Davis Family uses harmony to unite, and show their spiritual gratitude for God. Being at this family  reunion has made me realize how important it is for families to unite for a special occasion, and that is to learn their history, and to tell the story. One of the most special moments was seeing how the family was able to document their history from as early as the 1800s. I TRULY enjoyed my time with The Davis Family! -ARich

Kelvin & Patricia Washington https://www.eyeshadowphotography.com/blog/2015/6/kelvin-patricia-washington Kevin and Patricia Washington had an elaborate ceremony at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Myrtle Beach, SC. The ceremony was full of humor, laughter and fun. While working with the Washington Family I have been able to see how a couple can be married for 25 years, and witness how it still feels like day one. Being with a family with such a RICH culture has allowed both me, and the guest to feel every emotion of gratitude, and strength. Sharing the day with the Washington Family is a testament of what could happen in any relationship if one is faithful and true to their spouse, that 25 years is only the beginning of a new relationship. 

The highlight of the ceremony was witnessing the couple as they danced to Silento's song, "Watch Me (whip/ Nae Nae)," captivated the audience by seeing how the couple choreographered for the occasion.  It is evident that Kelvin and Patricia put a lot of thought, and effort in making their 25th Anniversary not only special, but humorous. It was a pleasure working with the couple, and I sure do know who's house to go to when I need a good laugh!
