Hey there! I’m Philip! I’m a hybrid photographer (film photographer + digital photographer) and my style is a unique combination of fine art wedding photography, lifestyle photography, and photojournalism photography. I mainly photograph weddings in Charleston, Phoenix, & Alaska but I’m available for travel anywhere in the world.
Why weddings? I photograph weddings because when I got married, we had a friend do our photos and the photos we got back were terrible. It was such an awful experience that I became a wedding photographer and I have made it my mission to make sure that doesn’t happen to anyone else. Plus, I’m a strong believer in the importance of marriage and relationships. I want to make sure your wedding memories get captured well and that they are safe for you to share for generations to come. You can trust me with your wedding.
I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and 11 years later, I’m still doing what I love and what is important to me. I have photographed over 350+ weddings and have delivered beautiful wedding photos to all those couples! I aim to create imagery that captures the joy, the personalities, and the deep connection you share with each other.
The Charleston weddings I photograph are at wedding venues likeMagnolia Plantation, Middleton Place, Legare Waring House, Lowndes Grove, Boone Hall Plantation, etc. I also document indoor and outdoor weddings in and around the Charleston, SC area. In South Carolina, there are many amazing places that we travel to quite often for weddings. Some other popular wedding destinations include Pawleys Island, Hilton Head, Beaufort, Savannah, Greenville, and Columbia, SC. The whole state offers beautiful scenery, and I make it a priority to capture spectacular wedding photos that showcase this beauty. Why come all the way to Charleston to have a southern, destination wedding and not have amazing wedding photos.
The Alaska weddings I photograph are at wedding venues like The Inn at Tern Lake, Raven Glacier Lodge, Alyeska Resort, Alaska Heavenly Lodge, Hatcher Pass Weddings, Sunset View Resort, Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge, and much more. I also photograph indoor and outdoor weddings in and around throughout Southcentral Alaska. In Alaska, there are many amazing places that I travel to quite often for weddings. Some other popular wedding destinations include Denali, Matsu Valley, Seward, Moose Pass, and Girdwood. Alaska is the most beautiful place in all of America and I can’t wait to create more beautiful Alaska wedding photos.
The Phoenix weddings I photograph are at wedding venues like The Phoenician, Eagle Mountain Golf Club, The Secret Garden Event Center, Sanctuary Camelback Mountain, Boulders Resort, Sky Ranch Lodge, etc. I also photograph indoor and outdoor weddings in and around Phoenix, AZ. In Arizona, there are many amazing places that I travel to quite often for weddings. Some other popular wedding destinations include Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Tucson. The whole state offers beautiful desert scenery–which is my favorite–and I make it a priority to capture beautiful wedding photos.
I am happy to serve you with my skills as a fine art wedding photographer to make sure you have great wedding photos to pass on to your great-grandchildren.
