I've been working on a wedding "magazine" to advertise and explain what I offer as a wedding photographer, and it was awesome walking down the "memory lane" that has been created the past few years.  I've had the opportunity to be a part of so many marriage celebrations that were simply precious!  Each one is unique and different, and it never gets old seeing couples so much in love.  :-)  And as I poured through the pictures, it was very difficult to select just a few favorites to include in the magazine.  I've photographed some beautiful people, folks!!  So if you, or someone you know has an upcoming wedding, take a look and give me a call.  I understand that all weddings are different, and have different needs -- so tell me about YOUR wedding, and I can give you a specific quote.  Four weddings booked already, so don't let your date get gone!

Announcing "LIGHT of my LIFE" sessions -- just in time for Valentine's Day.  The idea is to choose a location that will utilize existing light and give a little ambiance to your session.  So if you've been thinking about having pictures made as a couple, consider this fun session idea.  If you scroll down to an earlier blog, you'll see several samples from an earlier session.  Message me at 903-5101 for details, or email glendablackphoto@att.net.  HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Better late than never!  I actually dislike this phrase, but sometimes it just truly fits the situation.  My intentions were to post this on New Year's Day -- of course!  But January came in like a storm....literally.  On New Year's Day, we made a last-minute decision to drive from SC to NY to see my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, and we were greeted with about 10 inches of snow.  What a treat!!  And typically January is a slow month for my photography business, but I'm happy to say it wasn't the case this year.  ANYWAY.....I'm just now taking a look back to 2013, and want to send out a thank you to all my clients (7 weddings/bridal portraits, 8 high school seniors, 2 college seniors, 7 families, 3 maternity, 4 newborn, 2 siblings, 3 engagements for 2014 weddings, 1 silhouette, 2 head shots, 1 birthday/zoo, 1 best friends, 1 Mommy & Me, 1 military, 1 twin session, and 27 Santa sessions.  WHEW!!); and to all my friends and family who have been so supportive of me since launching my business!  {I couldn't even feature all the sessions in one layout, but below is a sample of what the year looked like.  And I'll soon be publishing a wedding brochure that will feature past brides/grooms.  I'm finalizing it now, and I'm sooooo excited about!  So keep checking back}  :-)


Blessed beyond measure,

WOW!  2013 started off with a bang, and an attempt for me to blog.  I was tremendously blessed last year, but I'm sad to report that I didn't do very well with keeping up with the new blog!  Shame on ME!!  But 2014 is an opportunity for a fresh new start.  This site has a new look, and I'll give it a valiant effort.  {Time will tell.....}

Several years ago I had the privilege to create silhouette images of six grandchildren -- for an unsuspecting grandmother!  It was a wonderful Christmas surprise!  Since then, a new little blessing joined their family, and little Jacob kept wondering why his silhouette wasn't on the wall with all the others.  Well, we finally added Jacob to her "wall of fame"!

If you would like a silhouette session, message me.  It would make an awesome MOTHER'S DAY gift!!  :-)

Well....once in a while, we must force ourselves out of our comfort zone.   In January every year, I try to challenge myself to break out of my comfort zone and try something new.  Since this is typically a slow time of the year for me as a photographer, the major decision was simply WHAT my challenge should be.  So...... since I've never really pursued night photography, I decided it was time!! 


This brave couple allowed me to practice, and for that I am grateful.  Here's a few from tonight's downtown session.  I have labeled this as my "LIGHT OF MY LIFE" series.  You don't have to be getting married to enjoy one of these sessions.  Perhaps you have an upcoming anniversary, or simply want to surprise your mate with a Valentine's session.   Call me at 903-5101 and we can make it happen!
