Need Professional Photography Services In The Daniel Island Area?

We've all heard the expression "a picture is worth a thousand words". And photos really are a special way to help tell the story of our lives - who we are and what's important to us.

And, of course, some images speak to us more strongly than others. More often than not we love a photo not so much because it shows us how we look but because it captures a very human element that is hard to express in words – an authentic connection with those we love or with ourselves and how we show up or want to be seen in the world.

Whether you're looking to capture someone's attention with a professional headshot or want to commemorate the beautiful connection with your partner or family, I can help.

My name is Adam Chandler, and as a professional photographer in Daniel Island, SC. I truly find joy and fulfillment in the work I do. I love the adventure of photography and I continually immerse myself in learning and exploring how to improve my craft which includes learning new ways to connect with and capture my subjects. I truly understand that, for many people (if not most), even the idea of having your picture taken can cause a good bit of discomfort and anxiety. That's why I place so much importance on putting my subjects at ease while also really listening to any concerns or wants they have for their session.

I draw upon my technical knowledge of photography, my ability to connect with people, and my creativity to produce beautifully memorable photos for my clients. I believe that my unique creative vision and many years of experience combined with the way I strive to give my clients the most enjoyable experience possible sets me apart from some of the other great photographers in Daniel Island.

my most popular photography services in Daniel Island: My Mission Is To Exceed Expectations

 Portrait Photographer Daniel Island, SC

My Mission Is To Exceed Expectations

The importance of family is hard to overstate. From children to grandparents to nieces and nephews, families and the family dynamic can grow and change before you know it, with many beautiful milestones taking place along the way.

I think that one of the best ways to remember some of these important moments of togetherness is with a fun family photo session.

I absolutely love photographing families and, while no two families are the same, I always strive to give each session my all in order to best connect with and capture the uniqueness of each family. Even though each session is somewhat different, I approach each one with the same goal: to capture the distinct personality, affection, and energy of each family in order to provide authentic, engaging pictures and a joyful experience.

Whether you have a toddler that you want to celebrate or have grandparents in town for a visit, Daniel Island is an amazing city for family photography. There are so many locations in the Lowcountry that make for great family photography backdrops:

  • Beaches - Folly Beach, Sullivan's Island, Kiawah, Seabrook, Isle of Palms, Hilton Head, Edisto Beach
  • Popular Places - Washington Square, Broad Street, Hampton Park, Waterfront Park, Shem Creek, The Cistern at College of Daniel Island
  • Historical Sites - Daniel Island Battery, Fort Sumter, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Rainbow Row

Historical Sites - The Battery/Whitepoint Gardens, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Boone Hall, Fort Sumter, Middleton Place, Morris Island Lighthouse Whatever location you choose for family photography in Daniel Island, the Holy City is a wonderful place to explore and enjoy with friends and family.

As a family photographer in Daniel Island, one of the reasons why I love working with families so much (in addition to getting to meet some really awesome people) is the opportunity to combine my creativity with my ever-evolving technical skill. I also gladly accommodate the style preferences my clients are looking for - be it more traditional, posed images, or candid, playful pictures.

I use a clear yet relaxed style of direction to get you and your family engaged in our photography session, to help get authentic expressions that really show the unique dynamic and relationships of each family.

Here are just a few reasons why families choose Adam Chandler Photography for their family portraits:

Document Family Growth

Change, of course, is part of life and with each passing year families, too, change and often grow. Each stage is beautiful in its own way and having annual family photographs is a fun way to document the different seasons of family life. Be it a new baby, a birthday or anniversary or simply wanting to capture your kids at each special age, I'd be honored to be chosen to help tell the story of your family over the years.

Remember Milestones

With each year that passes, new milestones are reached. From a child's first steps to a sibling getting married, there is no better way to remember these wonderful occasions than with quality photographs. Whether you're welcoming a new puppy into your life, are celebrating an anniversary or finally have gathered your extended family together in one place, capturing these special times in your life is a great way to ensure you'll be able to enjoy and relive these moments years from now.

Create Memories

Many families tell me before their sessions that it's not often that they are all able to be together and they emphasize how special and important this session is. Or, perhaps, a mom or dad will talk about how fleetingly special a certain age of their child is and how they really want to capture their children's personalities. Even if you capture lots of great moments of your family throughout the year it's likely not very often that all of you are in the pictures at once (other than maybe having a stranger tell you to "say cheese" after you hand them your phone. Having a time that's dedicated to capturing the special bonds between family members - parents and their children, grandparents and their grandchildren, siblings and maybe extended family as well - is so important. We all know just how special these people and moments are and how we tend to treasure these memories more with each passing year.

Portraits And Headshots In Daniel Island, SC

A great headshot shows you at your best - whether you want to impress a prospective employer or need professional photography for your website. In today's digitally-intensive society, having a professional headshot or portrait of you or your team that stands out for all the right reasons is becoming a necessity. It's no surprise, then, that headshots and portraits are among the most popular genres of photography.

Headshots can be tricky, mostly because many (if not most) people don't like being in front of the camera (trust me, I totally get that). I know that for some clients, it can be hard to know what to do, what to wear or how to relax enough to let their authentic selves come through so that they can end up with a professional photo or headshot that inspires authenticity and confidence.

Fortunately, I have years of experience taking professional headshots of all types of people. No matter what your comfort level is with having your picture taken, I pride myself on being able to create the conditions necessary to help capture my clients as you want to be seen. Through lighting, posing and direct yet relaxed interaction I'll help guide you to great photos that you’ll be proud to showcase and share with others.

A professional headshot or portrait is an investment into your personal brand, and here is why:

 Portrait Photographer Daniel Island, SC
 Best Photographer Daniel Island, SC

Show Your Personality

Not all headshots should be approached the same way. Depending on your industry or how you'll be using the photos, there are certain things to consider. A great headshot reflects not just how you look but also how you show up in the world. It can help give people an idea of the kind of person you are before you sit down to meet them. Oftentimes, too, people may want a variety of "looks" to suit different needs and uses. My goal is to listen to your expectations and then deliver results that will serve you will in your professional and/or personal life.

 Beach Photography Daniel Island, SC

Show Your Professionalism

Clients, collaborators, investors, and employers are typically much more likely to interview you or to contact you or your business if you look professional. If you've taken the time to invest in your brand, in part by making the effort to arrange a professional headshot, people notice that. And who doesn't want to make a great first (or second or third) impression?

 Family Portrait Photographer Daniel Island, SC

Stand Out on Social Media

Many of my clients make appointments for headshots and portraits when they want to stand out from the crowd on social media. Whether you own a business and need to create new social media pages or you're looking to network with recruiters on LinkedIn or, perhaps, update your website, a professional headshot can definitely set you apart in the modern sea of selfies and snapshots that you often see out there.

 Wedding Photographer Daniel Island, SC

Show Off Your Current Look

None of us look the same as we did 10 or 15 years ago yet some of us keep the same photo up for decades. Having outdated headshots can send a message of inauthenticity. When you have up-to-date, professional headshots, you're showing clients and employers that you are confident, committed, and authentic.

Qualities Of A Great Photographer In Daniel Island, SC

Being a great photographer means more than owning fancy equipment. While having expensive gear can be quite helpful, the real test of a professional, for me, has a lot more to do with being able to draw upon my deep understanding of the craft of photography so that I can focus more on connecting with and beautifully capturing my subjects without getting bogged down in figuring out the technical side of things. It's taken me many years to get where I am and I'm always striving to improve in order to continue to deliver the best pictures and most enjoyable experience possible for my clients.

Clients choose Adam Chandler Photography because my experience shows and they trust me to always give them the results and experience that they're looking for. Here are just a few qualities that my clients appreciate:

 Engagement Photography Daniel Island, SC

Imagination

I wholeheartedly consider photography to be an artform - one that requires lots of curiosity and imagination along with a good bit of technique. A great photographer knows how to get beautiful results no matter what the conditions or circumstances are and this only comes with experience and preparation.

Family Photography Daniel Island, SC

Passion

This quality might seem obvious but I can't tell you how many times I've seen photography that may be technically good but is missing something. My passion for photography largely comes from my passion for connecting with people in a way that helps them feel comfortable letting their guard down so they can enjoy the process. And this almost always leads to exceptional, authentic images.

 Photographer Daniel Island, SC

Patience

Patience can also be essential for great photos. As in life, there are many things that we just can't control. Sometimes the best photos come from patiently going with the flow and not trying to force something to happen. I find that when I'm patient yet prepared - ready to capture the right moment or expression when the time is right - that's often the best approach. As a professional with many years of experience, I understand the importance of having the patience to deal with whatever comes my way as well as the flexibility and preparedness to make the most out of any situation.

 Portrait Photographer Daniel Island, SC

People Skills

If ever there was a business where people skills were important I think portrait photography is definitely one of them. Knowing how uncomfortable many people can be when getting their pictures taken, I put every effort into helping ensure the best possible experience for my clients and communication is such a big part of that. I love interacting with my clients to build trust and rapport as well as a deep understanding of your expectations including any concerns you may have. As I've said, for me my job is not just about delivering beautiful images but also a wonderful client experience. That's why I focus so much on each and every interaction with my clients. Yes, people skills are a must in this business. Luckily for me, it's one of my favorite parts of the job!

Eye for Detail

As a professional photographer in Daniel Island, SC I am meticulous when it comes to details. Through my many years of photographing many different types of subjects under many different circumstances I've come to learn just how important details are. Whether it's finding or creating the best quality of light for my clients, eliciting a great expression or
adjusting the background or, perhaps, a piece of clothing, all of these things impact the overall look and feel of a photo. Whether I'm photographing a family, a business professional or a couple in love I always look for all the ways I can create the best image possible.

Art designed for downtime, not screen time

Sitting still while watercoloring, 5-year-old Adele quietly sings, “This little heart of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine,” and fades beautifully like the blue sky into water she paints on the paper.

Then, Adele spills the tiny recycled jar of water all over her rainbow. “Oh no,” she exclaimed and pulled the paper quickly off of the park’s picnic table and watched the colors mix together.

“It’s OK,” she discovers and holds up for others to see. Her new friend Emily agrees, “It’s a cool mistake.”

Jiana Wankel, a recent college marine science graduate, leans over to look but she doesn’t add to the conversation. Her support is her silence. She’s quiet and learned through her good teachers in the past to just let kids start conversations and discover what they want to create. She’s the one who conceived the idea for “Art in the Park” back in March.

As a nanny to several families on Daniel Island, Wankel made wise observations about children and adults: We don’t sit quietly in boredom very well anymore. In her soothing voice, it’s not a judgmental statement, it’s a resounding fact that rings true in our society of smartphones.

“Downtime doesn’t have to mean screen time,” Wankel shared, along with her personal sketchbook, as the reason she started this program. “Lately, I’ve loved the confidence I’ve gained by trusting my creativity. I wanted to facilitate an outdoor activity for children to feel inspired, confident and proud of ideas and interests.”

For a few months now, Wankel has furnished art supplies every Tuesday (weather permitting) from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Etiwan Park for kids 5 and up to come play: at the park and on the paper.

It’s a perfect drop-off time for busy parents who need to wrap up work and start dinner and it’s the perfect wind-down time for young minds. If they want to sit and paint or draw or create, there are plenty of supplies. If they want to run around and expend energy in between creative bursts, that’s OK too.

“I am here for any help they need,” Wankel said.

But as far as ideas for what to paint? “I want them to just go for it,” Wankel added.

Parents slide up beside their kids and start drawing, they drop them off late or pick them up early. Wankel has a very relaxed outlook about the whole experience and it translates to paper. The kids are relaxed and creating under a shady tree as a few rising third-graders add to the table.

“We love art,” one exclaimed and started confidently on a beach scene with her friend as the south side of the table started experimenting with Pollock-like splatters for sky patterns.

“I love how the kids play off each other,” Wankel shared with the remaining moms in an encouraging way, “It’s a subconscious way of supporting each other.”

At the end of the hour, some left with a single masterpiece and others left with a stack of creations. Parents came back from a grocery run or a quick errand. Wankel started to pack up her supplies of watercolors, brushes, pencils and papers from the artist supply shop.

“I want them to know what real artist colors look like and what professional paper feels like,” Wankel had explained earlier. As Emily collected her creations, she shared the happy accident from the watercolor experiment. “I spilled water on my art but then I just poured it off and it was so beautiful.”

That’s what happens when a young woman cares enough to create a new program in the park. Beautiful minds grow creative optimism!

Follow Wankel’s Facebook group called “Art in the Park” to learn more about these pop-ups or discover how your child can join a four-week class this summer which includes a personal supply of artist-grade items to keep downtime creative at home.

A new marina is in the works on Clouter Creek near Daniel Island in southern Berkeley County.

Thomas Island Marina will consist of 110 slips along with parking near the southern terminus of Clements Ferry Road, according to site plans.

The proposed development will include a 74-space parking area, restroom facility and picnic pavilion as well as a boardwalk across the marsh to the marina.

The 1.5-acre parcel is a highland tract on the southern edge of a 16.5-acre parcel owned by a firm called Clouter Creek Reserve LLC of Charleston.

The city of Charleston must approve the proposal for the site, south of Interstate 526.

Changing hands

A Mount Pleasant real estate investment firm that recently bought a set of office buildings on Shem Creek for nearly $7 million is now the owner of three industrial properties in Summerville after paying $8.1 million.

WRS Inc. Real Estate Investments bought the three sites totaling nearly 56,000 square feet off Varnfield Drive on April 18. The seller was Summerville Industrial Partners LLC.

The deal gives WRS a 25,000-square-foot facility at 215-A&B Varnfield Drive, a 20,803-square-foot building at 114-A&B Trigard Lane and the 9,840-square-foot property at 220 Varnfield Drive.

Pat Marr, development principal with WRS, represented his firm in the purchases off North Main Street, west of Azalea Square Shopping Center.

It’s the company’s latest industrial real estate investment in the Summerville market. In January, WRS paid $13.3 million in two separate transaction to acquire seven industrial and flex-space buildings with a combined 91,000 square feet off U.S. Highway 78 south of Flowertown. One of the sellers was Summerville Industrial Partners.

Earlier this month, WRS paid $6.825 million for twin office buildings at 410 Mill St. beside Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, four years after the property changed hands for $3.5 million, according to Charleston County land records.

Storage sale

A Charleston-based real estate investment firm recently sold three storage facilities across the Southeast for $48.5 million.

Adams Property Group announced April 21 it sold Monster Self Storage sites on Grand Oaks Boulevard in Charleston as well as sites in Savannah, Ga., and Winston-Salem, N.C., to New York-based Life Storage.

The seller said in a prepared statement the self-storage industry has been rapidly growing in recent years and it wanted to take advantage of “the heated market” for the best return to its investors.

All three properties will be rebranded as Life Storage.

Adams Property Group manages a portfolio of more than 1.9 million square feet of self-storage in 22 properties, including Monster and Your Storage Units, across South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

The company also owns nearly 1 million square feet of retail and flex space in the Carolinas and Georgia. Those properties include grocery-anchored retail, non-anchored retail and flex industrial facilities in business parks.
