jade & jovan engagement

First engagement session of the year!!! Attractive couple, great energy and so much creativity! I’m super excited for this wedding in July! My team and I will be able to capture a unique wedding after hearing all of their plans. This engagement session started near the apartment of the engaged couple. With the eye of Dr. Jade and cooperation of Jovan we easily made it happen…literally a few steps outside of the home. Talk about not having to go far. The first outfit, all black, served as a more formal approach to the couple. We went to an opening of tall wheat looking grass nearby and some shots using teh bamboo canes as a background. Also close by was a body of water from the nearby river.  Some tall oaks with Spanish moss helped create a spot for more pictures before looking at the water itself.                                                                                                                                                                           After a misty, gloomy early morning, it really ended up being a very pretty day. Perfect for an outfit change. And that’s what they did. Whites and blues of denim created the second look as we traveled to the popular Riverfront Park. Near the famous red door we started with some creative ways to use the huge water pipe. A little bit of athleticism, creativity, posing and a couple of laughs later, we used the red door, amphitheater, steps and benches to finish our session. Congratulations and super excited about July!!!                                                                                                                                                     Want images like these of your own session?

{Kirstin & Hunter} | Engagement Session | Columbia, SC

Is it the end of the year already? Well, this is the last engagement session of the year, but certainly not the least! What a way to go out…Hunter is truly a character. Hands down, he was the most energetic and entertaining groom-to-be this year in an engagement session. And Kirstin is truly a sweetheart. They dressed the part and we headed to Riverfront Park in Columbia’s downtown area. Starting at the old One Room Rosenwald school house we got a few test shots and then progressed from there. Dapper in his Kappa Alpha Psi inspired colors, Hunter had no problem posing for the camera and looking sharp with his grown man suspenders. From the schoolhouse to the bridge, the famous red door, and then outfit change…Hunter had Kirstin laughing and smiling the whole time. Looking forward to this wedding in June 2017!!!

{Wedding} | Jennifer & Lance | 701 Whaley

Another beautiful wedding as a second shooter to FOKAS Photography. One of my favorite decoration team, South Carolina Wedding Co did their thing again at one of South Carolina’s finest venues, 701 Whaley. With its exposed beams, original hardwoods, and stucco and palstered walls we love the rustic feel of this venue. Jennifer and her bridesmaids prepared for the wedding in the bridal loft, a large room with a second floor loft over looking the entire space.  The ladies were gifted with bags, drinking glasses, and embroidered robes. Jennifer received a pair of express heels, a card, and a selfie stick from Lance.  The selfie stick was a big hit and used almost immediately.

The wedding was on the second floor of 701 Whaley and the Reception was on the ground floor.  The reception was a full out party thanks to DJ-DDubb, The night ended with a grand exit with sparklers.Congratulations Jennifer & Lance!!

{Wedding} | Ashleigh & Sean | South Carolina Archives & History Center

Back in June 2015, I teamed up again with FOKAS photography for the unity of Ashleigh and Sean. Ashleigh’s bridal session was done a few weeks ago where i met her two lovely daughters, good looking mom and all the smiles between all of them. The wedding started with a head full of long, pretty natural hair styled by Divine Oasis Salon. From there, the ladies got prepared at the ceremony location,Second Nazareth Baptist Church. The church had enough space to sit everyone comfortably, and to see the ceremony with unobstructed views. Following the ceremony, we traveled to the reception venue, the South Carolina History & Archives Center. With a sweets table, decorations in blue, white and black, we celebrated with plenty of fun, food, and good times. Congratulations AShleigh and Sean!!!

{Wedding} | Jametta & Ronjae | 701 Whaley

As a second shooter to FOKAS Photography, another wedding was held at the beautiful 701 Whaley venue in Columbia, SC.  701 Whaley is a nice venue by itself, but my favorite wedding decoration team, South Carolina Wedding Co. made it breathtaking. Ms. Tammy is simply amazing at what she and her team does. They can transform anything. We’ve been working together since 2012. Jametta and Ronjae were hitched on November 28, 2015 and what a fun wedding it was. The groomsmen were dapper in their dark suits and the bridesmaids very pretty in their grey and coral dresses. The make-up by Marquita Williams was simply flawless. Everyone looked good. It was good seeing so many people at this wedding. My old football coach was in the wedding, a classmate was a groomsmen, and the maid of honor helped me in one of my first entrepreneurial endeavors. This wedding was brilliantly organized and coordinated through the skill of Javettra and her company Avila Dawn Events. Interested in having images like these of your event?

{Wedding} | Alissa & Dwayne | Isle of Palms

This wedding was the first of three this weekend. The first of two in one day. And it started at 6AM. My first Sunrise wedding, I went to Charleston, SC the night before and stayed on my favorite part…Daniel’s Island. About 5AM I was in route to help celebrate Alissa & Dwayne. A cool, dark drive into the Isle of Palms I grabbed my gear and headed to the house after getting some shots on the beach itself first. With the smallest saxophone I ever saw in life, the smooth runs and riffs echoed the sounds from the waves hitting the shore. After some preparation shots, the sun began to emerge and so did the guests. This first time experience really was a a beautiful wedding. The beach and outside provided unique elements you simply just won’t find inside. Sand, crabs, salt water, 100+ marathon runners…Good times! Interested in obtaining images like these of your own?

{Hitched!!!} | Shaquanda & Adam | Charleston, SC

We had the pleasure of capturing Shaquanda and Adam’s wedding ceremony and reception at the Charleston Marriott Hotel. Their colors were turquioise and silver, and these were the most energetic groomsmen ever. Mostly members of Omgea Psi Phi Fraternity, these young men were  wide open. From the engagement session of Shaquanda and Adam, i thought that Adam was quiet. His groomsmen spoke for him all throughout the day. All 10 of them. Stepping off the elevator on the second floor i could hear them celebrating! Mrs. Keke Swinton of Simply Kreative met me at 7am to set up the photobooth, and an awesome planner is she! Easy to work with, had clear direction and made things happen. Dominikii of DC Photography and Shandelle of b3 Photography created a fun, high energy atmosphere for the photobooth. Thank you ladies for all that you do! Couldnt have asked for a better team to help capture Shaquanda & Adam’s wedding. Take a look…

P.S. If you are interested in photos like this for your wedding or wedding related event feel free to contact us! We would be more than happy to listen to your vision and see how we can help capture your event. – Sir Blocker  | 866.200.1350  | Info@AroundTheBlockPhotographycom

{Quinessa & Jamel} | Hitched!!! | Brookland Baptist + 701 Whaley

The Dream Team, back together again!!! Dominic of FOKAS Photography, Richard of True View Photography, and Sir Blocker (me) linked up together for Quinessa & Jamel’s wedding. Quinessa and her bridal party got prepared at the Hilton’s presidential Suite. Demetrius Cunningham, an awesome make-up artist did his thing with Quinessa. One of the highlights included Quinessa being gifted a pair of Christian Louboutin’s, Her face was lit!

For us regular folk, we drove our own cars to Brookland Baptist. Only a stretched Hummer would do for the bridal party.however, the Rolls Royce Phantom carried the bride and groom separately. The ceremony was emotional, full of laughs, smiles, and tears.

Quinessa and Jamel assembled familiar and some of the greatest vendors. South Carolina Wedding Co. did an amazing job as usual transforming the already beautiful 701 Whaley venue. TJ Wilson of Images of Power Videography and The Dream Team pulled of a unified team effort to make this day one to remember.

{Alexis & Phillip} | Hitched!!! | Spartanburg, SC

Another opportunity as a second shooter to FOKAS Photography, Alexis and Phillip were married at their home church Cornerstone Baptist Church in Spartanburg, SC. The Bride and Groom got ready at the church, and we were totally on schedule because of the month transition it was by the efforts of director Virginia Watson.  The church itself was beautiful, and the ceremony matched perfectly. Plenty of laughs energy, personality and fun! This was a large wedding party, but no problems at all in terms of pictures. The reception was at the Cleveland Park & Event Center. It was nicely decorated and had plenty of personality itself. Outside boasted a wrap around porch, water, bridges, and a very picturesque environment.
