Need Professional Photography Services In The North Charleston 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston.

Now that you know a little about my background, let's take a look at some of
my most popular photography services in North Charleston: My mission is to beautifully capture the joy and connection of each unique family while also creating a fun experience for my clients.

 Portrait Photographer North Charleston, SC

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, North Charleston 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 North Charleston
  • Historical Sites - North Charleston Battery, Fort Sumter, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Rainbow Row

Whatever location you choose for family photography in North Charleston, the Holy City is a wonderful place to explore and enjoy with friends and family.

As a family photographer in North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, SC
 Best Photographer North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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.

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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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.

California Native Lawton Courtnall Returns to South Carolina

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Washington Capitals and AHL's Hershey Bears, have agreed to terms with forward Lawton Courtnall for the 2022-23 season."Lawton is one of the best skaters in the league," said Head Coach Brenden Kotyk.

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Washington Capitals and AHL's Hershey Bears, have agreed to terms with forward Lawton Courtnall for the 2022-23 season.

"Lawton is one of the best skaters in the league," said Head Coach Brenden Kotyk. "He played in every situation for us and was a great teammate. He still has another gear that no one has seen yet, and when he gets there, he will be scary."

In 68 games during the 2021-22 season, Courtnall racked up 28 points on 13 goals and 15 assists. The native of Westlake Village, CA burst onto the scene by scoring two goals in his Stingrays debut to help the team win 4-2 on opening night.

Now entering his third season of professional hockey, the 6-foot-0, 210-pound left-handed forward has suited up for 122 career games and recorded 41 points on 21 goals and 20 assists from 2020-22 splitting time between the Wheeling Nailers and the Stingrays.

"The main reason I wanted to come back to the Stingrays is I felt there was unfinished business," said Courtnall. "The staff has done a great job this off-season finding new talent that will complement the core group of guys that are returning. My goal is to bring a Kelly Cup back to the city of Charleston."

Prior to turning pro in 2020, Courtnall spent four seasons at Western Michigan University. Courtnall appeared in 138 games with the Broncos from 2016-20, accumulating 36 points on 17 goals and 19 assists.

Courtnall's father, Russ, played 15 seasons in the NHL and played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Minnesota North Stars, Dallas Stars, Vancouver Canucks, New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings. His sister, Ally, won a National Championship at UCLA in soccer. In addition, his other sister, Brooklyn, is on Team Canada's U-20 team that qualified for the FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup that begins next month.

The Stingrays will open the 2022-23 home campaign on October 22 at the North Charleston Coliseum against the Norfolk Admirals at 6:05 p.m.

Season ticket plans are on sale now! For more information or to purchase, contact the Stingrays by phone at 843-744-2248.

Berkeley County products help North Charleston win world series title

North Charleston’s Dixie Majors baseball team captured the 2022 World Series title with a 10-7 win over Louisiana on July 27. The win marked the 10th World Series title for North Charleston’s program, all under the direction of Kenny Wilkinson.

“Really proud of this group of guys,” said Wilkinson, a member of the Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame. “We had 18 guys and honestly all 18 contributed in some way to our success. As a group, they did their part and did what was asked of them. They were an unselfish group. A real pleasure to coach.”

North Charleston went 6-1 in the tournament, reeling off five straight wins after its only loss.

Caleb Singleton, Doom Dennis and Aryan Patel each had two hits and a RBI in the championship game. Singleton had multiple hits in the team’s last three games of the tournament.

Singleton and Patel are Berkeley County products, having played at Goose Creek High School and Hanahan High School.

The roster also includes Berkeley High School graduates Eric Green and Jesse Free.

“We swung the bats really well all week and we got production up and down the lineup,” Wilkinson said.

Nick Vaughn was the winning pitcher, notching his second victory of the tournament. Jacob Crabb earned the save in the title game. Crabb also had a win earlier in the tournament.

“We used all eight pitchers, a few of them multiple times, and they all did a great job,” Wilkinson said.

North Charleston grabbed control early in the game with a four-run second inning before Louisiana used a three-run homer in the third to close the gap to 4-3.

Three runs in the fourth pushed North Charleston’s lead to 8-3. After Louisiana scored twice in the fifth, North Charleston tacked on three runs in the bottom of the inning. Louisiana scratched for two in the sixth but Crabb shut the door in the seventh to secure the win.

“This team just battled all week,” Wilkinson said. “Every time they got knocked down, they got up and answered the bell. This is not an easy tournament to win. Our guys really deserve a lot of credit.”

This year’s tournament was played in Nashville, Tennessee. North Charleston will host the 2023 World Series next summer.

Runners fight to save North Charleston track

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - More than 800 people have signed a petition to save a running track that is likely to be eliminated because of new editions at a North Charleston facility.Improvements coming to the Danny Jones Athletic Facility will include a new aquatics center and a gymnasium.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - More than 800 people have signed a petition to save a running track that is likely to be eliminated because of new editions at a North Charleston facility.

Improvements coming to the Danny Jones Athletic Facility will include a new aquatics center and a gymnasium. But with the new additions, City of North Charleston spokesperson Ryan Johnson said the footprint of the building will increase, leading to space constraints on the site, which will eliminate the track itself.

Johnson said the football field currently at the site will remain.

An area running club, the Park Circle Pacers, has 300 members, including 100 active members. They practice at the Danny Jones track regularly for their Tuesday evening workouts. Members of the group say that losing the track would be a huge loss for not only them, but for the whole community.

A walking and biking trail will surround the site, but members say that’s not enough.

Member Erin Atkinson said the track provides safety features that you can’t get while running on the street or sidewalks.

“The hazards that I see every day, between sidewalks not being cleared, having debris or trash there, motorists not paying attention, or sometimes being hostile towards runners or walkers,” Atkinson said. “Having an area like this where you can just focus on your workout and getting in some fitness without having to worry about your safety is key.”

Brian Johnson is a cross country and track and field coach at Academic Magnet. To Johnson, losing the track would make it harder for his team to get to a facility to practice since the track is close to their school now.

“So many times, you have teenagers traveling to go practice somewhere,” Johnson said. “That adds a liability.”

Michelle Huntley isn’t part of the running group but lives a half mile away in Park Circle. She said when she walks or drives by the track, she sees people utilizing it morning, noon, and night.

“You just don’t see that with other recreation facilities, something that’s used so frequently,” Huntley said.

The city said the projected completion time for the project is late 2023.

“To lose this track would be a travesty,” said Lionel Adams, at-large director for the Road Runners Club of America. “We just can’t see this empowering everyone to run if this is missing.”

Members say they plan on speaking at the next North Charleston City Council meeting.

Jackrabbit Filly owners set sights on new North Charleston restaurant near Reynolds Avenue

NORTH CHARLESTON — A new barbecue restaurant is coming to the city’s southern end, but that doesn’t begin to describe what you’ll soon find at 2029 Carver Ave., steps away from Reynolds Avenue.

Char siu (Cantonese barbecue pork), Chinese sausage, roasted duck and fried cabbage are some of the dishes Shuai and Corrie Wang of Jackrabbit Filly will serve inside King BBQ, set to open in early 2023.

Since turning their popular Short Grain food truck and pop-up into a brick-and-mortar restaurant in 2019, the Wangs have made Jackrabbit Filly a place that feels cozy and comfortable, yet dynamic and full of surprises. The restaurant seamlessly blends Chinese and American cuisine in a casual and lively setting, with dishes like karaage, dumplings, fish tartare and drunken egg noodles in ginger tomato sauce among the local favorites.

King BBQ will be different, with a menu unlike other barbecue restaurants in the Lowcountry. The restaurant’s name comes from the couple’s surname, which translates to King in Chinese. When written in Chinese, Wang is said to resemble the forehead of a tiger.

“The concept is more Chinese-style barbecue with a heavy influence of North Carolina, so mustard and vinegar ’cue,” Shuai Wang said.

That means roasted and smoked meats paired with sides that riff on classics; German potato salad and North Carolina red slaw, for instance. Diners will be invited to order at the counter and settle at a table inside the 3,000-square-foot space or outside on a covered patio, perhaps with one of several dive bar-inspired cocktails.

Shuai Wang called Kings BBQ a “Buffalo Bills bar,” so in addition to Chinese barbecue, expect the Labatt Blues to be flowing.

The restaurant is housed in a building that was once separated into two units, 2027 and 2029 Carver Ave. It previously housed several businesses, including The News & Courier’s North Area Branch Office in the 1950s.

You might recognize the building’s owner, Ed Sutton, one of nine potential running mates floated by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Joe Cunningham on July 18. Sutton owns several buildings in the Reynolds Avenue corridor, a part of North Charleston that has seen an influx of development in recent years.

“We’re kind of seeing a resurgence of interest in the area,” Sutton said. “It’s been really interesting to see this transition and renewed interest.”

Sutton will soon redevelop the 3324 Rivers Ave. space previously occupied by Gold Mine Pawn Shop, a 9,000-square-foot project he said could include a restaurant. For now, his focus is on King BBQ, a “total overhaul” that will be designed by the Wangs.

“I love the neighborhood,” Corrie Wang said, describing King BBQ’s setting. “I just think that we’re opening a friendly place that’s going to make everybody happy.”

Current Jackrabbit Filly chef Brandon Olson will lead the King BBQ kitchen as chef de cuisine. The promotion is an example of the Wangs giving employees opportunities for growth — a Jackrabbit Filly server will take on King BBQ’s general manager role, while a bartender will be promoted to bar manager.

Ahead of King BBQ’s opening, the Wangs will harken back to their Short Grain days by popping up at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (or sold out). The first pop-up will take place Aug. 23.

If it’s anything like those Short Grain events, we recommend visiting early and often.

NORTH CHARLESTON — Daryl Hall, who used to live in Charleston, is now coming back for a concert.

The rock ‘n’ roll hall of famer, made popular by pop-rock music duo Hall & Oates, will play at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Aug. 11.

Hall bought and renovated a house on Meeting Street, below Broad Street, in the 2010s, which he lived in for years and then sold during the pandemic.

Hall began sharing his love for home preservation and restoration back in 2014 on his Magnolia Network show “Daryl’s Restoration Over-Hall.”

“One of my passions outside of music is antique architecture,” Hall told The Post and Courier over the phone. “Obviously, Charleston is chock-full of it. I found this 1750s house South of Broad and renovated it and lived there for years.”

Hall said his passion for architecture and renovating, along with music, runs in his family. His grandfather was a stone and brick mason and used to build houses and chimneys. So, Hall was around a lot of construction sites in his hometown of Philadelphia; he used to help with some renovations himself.

He’s also spent a lot of time in England renovating houses there, some of which are featured on his TV show.

“I really love the craftsmanship involved in it,” he said.

He shared that his Charleston house needed less of a restoration than many of the other houses he’s worked on in the past, but he did restore some parts of the top two floors and tore one floor apart completely to reconfigure the space.

“I didn’t want to alter the integrity of the house,” Hall said. “I’m a purist. I mostly left it alone.”

Now, he lives in Connecticut in another house he’s restored, but he remembers his time in Charleston fondly.

Hall, who classifies himself as a homebody, said he didn’t go out much when he lived here but loved to host friends at his home.

“I’m not a person who likes to do a lot of things,” he said with a laugh. “But I do love Charleston. It’s one of my favorite cities.”

He also recorded music at a couple of local studios while he lived in the Holy City.

Those include Truphonic Recording Studios in West Ashley, where Ranky Tanky, Stop Light Observations and Darius Rucker have recorded.

And The Space in North Charleston with Wolfgang Zimmerman, the producer behind some Band of Horses, Susto and Futurebirds records.

Hall’s stepdaughter March Fry worked at The Space.

“We didn’t actually get to work with him, but he did come in when (March) was recording,” Zimmerman said. “I did want to record with him, though.”

During this upcoming trip to Charleston, Hall won’t be sharing the stage with his usual counterpart John Oates.

For this tour, he’s joined by Daryl’s House Band, the group that plays with him on another TV show he hosts, “Live From Daryl’s House.”

The live performance, Hall said, is very similar to the show. Todd Rundgren and his band open up the set, and the environment is staged to feel familiar to “Live From Daryl’s House.”

While Hall does, of course, play some classic Hall & Oates hits, he also has been focusing on the songs throughout his catalogue that might not have been as recognized or appreciated at the time. Most are being pulled from his latest album, “Before After,” which is a solo retrospective that chronicles his music the way he wants, as an alternative history of sorts.

“I’ve always been interested in a lot of directions,” Hall said. “What I do with John Oates, that’s one thing, but over the years I’ve been doing creative projects with a lot of people and in a lot of situations that have not been exhibited as largely as what I do with John or under the name Hall & Oates.”

He said he thinks the new album is necessary to equalize things and show off the different aspects of his musical life. It’s a reintroduction to his catalogue, and “it’s all things Daryl,” he shared.

“There’s a lot more freedom involved,” he added. “I’ve never been comfortable being half-something, that’s not where I’m coming from. In truth, I never was, so clarifying and vindicating that makes me feel good.”

Hall has also been getting back into those “Live from Daryl’s House” jams, which were stopped during the pandemic. Filming will pick up in September and last through November; he doesn’t know exactly how he will release the series this time around, but it’s more about the experience for him.

And he shared that he’s excited about some guests he’ll be collaborating with this fall.

“I love everything about it: spontaneity, variation, the challenge of it, the working with people who are complete strangers,” he said. “I never know what’s going to happen, and I never come out of it the same way I go into it.”

He’s also been recording music with Dave Stewart of British pop duo Eurythmics, who has co-produced albums with Hall in the past, at Stewart’s house in the Bahamas. They’ve got eight songs under their belt so far, Hall said.

No matter who he’s playing or recording with, Hall said, he holds onto his sensibilities and his voice. That’s the glue that keeps all his projects together, despite how different they might seem.

He hopes this Charleston show will be a reintroduction, not only of him to his former place of residence, but of his fans to some of his work over the years that hasn’t gotten a chance in the spotlight.
