Wedding Photography in Greenwood, SC Harmon – DeWorken
Sunnie and John
It was a fantastic weekend for a wedding in Greenwood SC. John and Sunnie made the perfect bride and groom. Traveling to Greenwood, SC was interesting and fun. Since I don’t photograph there as often as Greenville, SC, and other locations it was a new place to experiment and explore.
I want to mention first and foremost none of these photographs are staged. They are all real moments, and I didn’t interfere, coax or suggest, just good old fashioned photojournalism.
So, after doing so many weddings (and still loving it), you never know what you might need to pull out of the arsenal. The previous week I was translating Spanish-Christian Bible for 1 Cor 13. So at the wedding the bride had slight problem with the gown, and after thinking about it I took apart my wallet to get some linen thread and just so happened to have a needle (since I make leather stuff just fyi: coxleather.com) a shameless plug.. haha. And so we got the dress back in shape with a small repair with a macgyver mentality… The truth is, that whatever it takes to make it be trouble/stress free event for the bride let’s do that..
You can see some of the brides remarks at the bottom of the post. You will notice in the photographs, she kept the dress twirling all night!! Sunnie and John were great people to work for.

It is why I waited until my 30s until I got married. Not rushing into a lifelong companionship, I waited until I found the right man with which to share my life.
Similarly, I took my time with wedding planning to ensure the ceremony and celebration matched the feelings I had about beginning my life with John. Thankfully, that was accomplished.
The ceremony was as traditional as the reception was fun and full of life. The church was gorgeous; bridesmaids were full of emotion; and, family proud. The reception, equally, was planned to great detail: a menu crafted by the best caterer in the Southeast; music delivered by a band that got young and old to the dance floor; and lighting and flowers that created the most magical ambiance.
However, I needed a photographer that would capture this event for a lifetime. Thankfully, I knew the outstanding work of Patrick Cox. Patrick is where imaginative wedding photography meets National Geographic. His photos are creative, natural, and authentic. He is able to capture the most important details and the rawest of emotions. He was able to bring the entire event home for us.
I don’t think I have ever been flooded with so many different emotions in one day. Everything was perfect – the groom, my family, my bridesmaids, the flowers, the band, the food, the ambiance and even the weather. However, I felt like I was having an out of body experience. It was so exhilarating, but so overwhelming at the same time.
It is so strange to have everyone that has helped shaped you into being the person you have become to descend upon one place at one time to celebrate you and love you. I wish I could do it all over again in, but in slow motion to give me the opportunity to savor every look, every conversation, every dance and every detail of the wedding and the reception. I’m thankful that Patrick has been able to capture those precious moments, so that I will be able to enjoy them for a lifetime.

I went to visit my friend and his studio Jon Holloway. He has an awesome space in downtown Greenwood, SC. When I got there I think he told me he was off to photograph a mud wrestling contest?
